The GO Group Dares you to Stay at these Haunted Hotels

CHICAGO, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- If your idea of fun consists of eerie apparitions the ghost experts  at The GO Group, LLC, dug up these spooky spots guaranteed to add some fright to your night!

Built during the 1893 World's Fair, the Congress Plaza Hotel has a dark reputation. Ghost sightings include Al Capone, a former frequent visitor and "Peg-Leg Johnny," who roams the property and randomly turns lights and appliances on and off. During WWI, a young mother staying there suffered a nervous breakdown and threw her sons out the 12th floor window before jumping herself. Her six-year old son can be been seen wandering the property.  Room 411 guests claim to be kicked awake by a "shadow woman," and hear objects moving and other eerie noises. 

The Langham London has ghosts galore! There's the German prince in military dress who jumped out of the window before WWI and a butler still serving his guests long after his death. Linger in the hallways to see an apparition with a gaping wound in his face or head to the basement to "meet" former guest Napoleon III.  If you go for Halloween, you might run into a man in Victorian evening wear who killed his new wife in room 333 and only appears during October. 

Perhaps New Orleans should be called the Big Uneasy because of all its haunted happenings.  At the Hotel Monteleone guests may see the spirits of the original owner as well as a Jazz singer lingering around. Ghosts of former employees can be seen tending to children playing in the hotel's halls.  Some guests might think they've had one too many when seeing the ghost of a man wearing nothing but a feathered mask.

Celebrity stalkers will like the Chelsea Inn in New York City, known for the notability of its residents over the years ? many of whom refuse to leave even after their deaths. Most notably, Sid Vicious of the Sex Pistols, accused of murdering his girlfriend Nancy Spungen. He later died of a drug overdose and the two are still occupying the venue  -- perhaps hobnobbing with author Dylan Thomas who died there in 1953. 

The Benson is a Portland landmark built by successful businessman Simon Benson. Teetotaler Benson can still be seen wearing a dark suit and is thought to knock over patron's drinks and floating down the main staircase. Other sightings include a woman wearing a turquoise dress who can be seen in a mirror in the lobby and a young boy likes to visit guests and make silly faces, much to his own amusement.

The GO Group LLC provides both shared-ride shuttles and private cars at more than 90 airports in the United States, Canada, Central America, the Caribbean and Europe, including those in the cities mentioned above.  For a complete list, visit www.GoAirportShuttle.com.  The company serves some 13 million passengers per year.
