Fairmont Hotel Vancouver

Everyone in Vancouver has heard the story of the “Lady in Red.” It’s believed the ghost haunts the iconic Fairmont Hotel Vancouver on West Georgia to this day. The hotel was built in 1939 and many who have stayed there say they’ve seen her, usually on the 14th floor. Ghosts of Vancouver states it all began when a Japanese family checked into the hotel and asked if it was double-booked after catching a glimpse of her.

The Inn At Spences Bridge, Spences Bridge

Some visitors have reported hearing sounds of people fighting overnight, as well as random tapping noises that have made it hard for some guests to get some shuteye.
