Staffer’s Stay at Hotel Monteleone

“After a late dinner, I returned to the room to find my family fast asleep. I whispered, ‘Good night boys’ and immediately saw my cell phone light up on a nearby nightstand. I checked it—no messages or alerts—it had lit up for no reason. Later I learned that a boy ghost is a frequent visitor on the 14th floor. Not that I’m counting, but that’s technically the 13th floor.” —Mamie Walling, office manager
