A month or so ago I went out of town with my mom because she had a work conference. We were gone for the weekend and on the first night there I had a strange experience.
We decided to leave late at night as opposed to early in the morning, mainly because my moms conference was in the morning and we didn't want to rush from our house which was about two hours away. Sometime after midnight we got to our hotel and checked in then went straight to our floor.
As we got out of the elevator, there was a hallway that lead to what I later found out was a banquet room, then there was a corner on the other side of the elevator that lead to the hallway where the rooms were. One thing about the hallway was that it had this eerie old look to it, and a large steel door across the hall from our room. I assumed the door was for room service but still it really seemed out of place there. As we tried to get into our room that the card key wouldn't open the door, so my mom said that she would go down to the lobby to see what the problem was. This left me alone in the hallway and at first it didn't bother me until a few seconds after I heard her enter the elevator and leave.
I remember just standing there and having an overwhelming feeling, then it was as if somebody was in the hall or was coming into hall. But I was staring at the hallway that lead to nothing but a wall, and that's where it felt like someone was. I shrugged it off and thought somebody was probably about to leave their room, but nobody ever came out. I kept standing there in front of the room door, waiting. Then suddenly I heard something on the other end of the hall (where the banquet room was).
It sounded like footsteps at first and they sounded like they were getting closer. I'm not going to lie, I was getting a little freaked out by then but despite that I really thought it was somebody just walking. But when the footsteps got to the corner that turned into my hall they stopped. At that point I wanted to leave and go by my mom in the lobby but the stairs and elevator were where these footsteps were so I just stayed. It was almost immediately after the footsteps stopped that I could vaguely hear a tapping sound. This sound though seemed to be in one place. I had really hoped that somebody was there, waiting for the elevator or something but honestly I knew better because there was nobody at the banquet end of the hall when we first got there, and I know that of somebody did for after us I would have heard it.
Shortly after this my mom came back with new keys and we went into our room. I debated on whether or not to tell her what happened but at the time I was still trying to figure it out myself. At first I thought I was tired and imagined it, but a day later we were walking through the lobby when I overheard a guy talking to somebody about a strange thing that happened to him in the hall that night (the night after my experience). I didn't hear what it was because we were in a hurry, but obviously after hearing him say this it had me thinking. I don't know what it was or if there was a connection between what he heard and what I heard. I can't find any information either, the only thing I could find on the hotel was a website and reviews.
