While I was in Seattle WA for a pageant, my mom booked us a room at the Hilton Hotel. We had just gotten back from a competition and we were craving junk food. We went to the front desk (this is just my mom and I, my brother stayed back in the room) and asked the woman if they had any junk food machines. She said, "No, but we have a pop machine way down at the end of the hall." So my mom and I went to get some pop.
The elevators you would normally take were a long distance from the pop machines and there was a service elevator a few doors down from us. We took the service elevator. This elevator was OLD! When the doors opened, there was an old chair resting in the corner of it. I thought, "Maids use this elevator, someone must have left it or something." When you walk in, you feel this feeling that just makes you uncomfortable. At the same time you're a little freaked out because you're in an old elevator with a rusty old chair!
I turned to my mom and said, "I bet you someone is sitting in that chair!" After that nothing was quite the same. The feelings began to get stronger, and the elevator doors wouldn't open! The light showed we were on our floor, which was the third floor so it wasn't that long of a ride. I then said, "I bet this thing is haunted." As soon as I said that, the voice spoke. It sounded as if it were from an old radio, and it sounded like it was on top on the elevator, yet it felt like it was right in your ear! The voice sounded like it was from another time though. I can't quite describe it, but it was freaky! It said, "Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha!" in a low, uncomfortable voice.
My mom and I ran to the doors and the doors opened and we were out of there! My brother didn't believe us, but now I'm an even better believer! I told two of my pageant friends about this and they replied, "Let's go check it out!" I was hesitant, but I still went. It still felt uneasy, not a good feeling. It didn't feel "evil". It felt... Depressing and sad. Then at other times it felt creepy happy! The chair wasn't in the elevator and my friends and I were too scared to talk, so it didn't reply. I think it was us talking to it that caused it to want to reply to us.
This was my first experience and I was not too happy about it!
