Our lobby has undergone a transformation since yesterday's post. Skeletons, vampires, and spider webs are everywhere, and there's even a disembodied hand coming out of the front desk. It can only mean one thing -- Halloween is fast approaching. Last year, the Slacker and Steve Radio Show from Alice 105.9 made a stop at the Hotel Boulderado on their Tour of Terror. Slacker and Steve each stayed in one of our alleged "haunted" rooms on the third floor. Click here to listen to the audio clip from the radio show.

While there have been reports of ghosts and paranormal activity all over the hotel in a variety of guest rooms, two of our suites in the historic section have seemed to be more active than the average room. Room 304 is a beautiful one-bedroom suite featuring a king bed and views of downtown Boulder. It also has a door leading to an open-air porch that connects to 302, making it one of the most popular and desirable rooms in the hotel. Many people stay in 304 without any problems or disturbances, but there have also been reports of people feeling uneasy, hearing strange noises, and other unexplained phenomenon.

304 and 302 will be open to the public this Friday as part of Historic Boulder's Ghost Walk/Ghost Talk this Friday between 7pm and 10pm. "Ghosts" will be on hand to share their stories of days past, refreshments will be served, and psychics will be available for personal readings. Visit Historic Boulder's website to learn more about this event and how to purchase tickets.
