A Dark Hand
It was the first time I stayed in a hotel as high quality as this one. It was in West Palm Beach, Florida and I was there for winter break with my family. I was sleeping on the sofa-bed, which was conveniently right across from the door on the other side of the room. I can't remember what night it was, but I woke up in the middle of the night, and I had an odd feeling. I looked at the alarm clock next to me and it was about 2:30 or 2:40ish.
I sat up and saw two shadows at the bottom of the door. (This hotel was old and you could very well see the light from the hallway from below the door.) It was obvious that it was somebody's feet. Then they disappeared. They didn't disappear one by one, so I am assuming that it jumped.
I didn't really know what to make of it, so I made sure I wasn't dreaming. (I pinched my cheek.) I saw a movement what I thought was in front of the door, and at the top of the door (where you could also see the light from the hallway) there was a little dark slit in the door. Then there was a visible hand and part of a wrist that has gotten through the door. I was way too shocked to scream so I just laid back down and tried to fall back asleep.
I honestly don't know what that was so if somebody could explain this event to me, that would be great.
And I forgot to mention earlier, this hotel used to be a hospital. I have talked to a lot of the other people staying at the hotel and a few of them have also seen paranormal activity throughout the hotel.
The Perfume Ghost
This story was from one of the guests over at the same hotel that I was talking to.
He said that it was about 2003. He was in the elevator and for some reason, at the third floor, the elevator doors opened and nothing was there. He didn't think much of it at the moment, so he just pressed the button that shut the doors, and continued to go up to the 7th floor.
He said that he then noticed the perfume smell that made the whole elevator smell like flowers. He said that he was a little weirded out, but the didn't dwell too much on the smell. He thought that he just failed to notice it when he first stepped into the elevator.
Once he got to the 7th floor, he stepped out and he could still smell the perfume in the hallway. He started walking, and he could still smell it. Then he was turning the corner to go right. (You could either go right or left.) The perfume smell seemed to go to the left. He then changed his course to go to the left hallway, then this is when he started to wonder if it was a ghost wandering the hotel. So he jogged to see if he could catch up to the ghost.
He did. Then he said that the smell all of a sudden just disappeared so he assumed that it went through a wall.
