I live in Tampa, Florida, but the event happened at 5 am on July 14th in Orlando, Florida. I was attending an educational conference at the Hilton. I had a very secluded room on the 9th floor. You had to go all the way down the hall, take a left, go past a service set of stairs, and around another corner to find this room that was all by itself. I almost couldn't find it my first night. It was located at the top corner of the hotel. It had this great balcony that went around 2 sides and the man that checked me in said it was very private and quiet.
I arrived Sunday evening, watched TV, read some, and went to bed around midnight. Nothing of interest happened that first night. I attended conferences all day, had dinner, again watched TV and read. Around 10:30 pm I turned off the lights and went to sleep.
I tossed and turned a little bit, every time checking the clock. I remember that happening 2 to 3 times. The last time I looked at the clock it was 4:30 am. I wasn't all the way back asleep when I felt a body get in the bed and snuggle up close to me. The bed definitely had a large weight next to me. The closeness wasn't sexual in nature, but I was freaked out. All I could think was that someone had slipped into my room and I was about to be raped.
Only seconds went by when I moved my hand to the back of my thigh to see if I could feel a person. A large hand touched my hand and held it. It wasn't an aggressive hold. Looking back, it was actually nicely affectionate, but not sexual.
I bolted up at that moment, but nothing was there. I ran and turned on the first light in the room. The door was still locked and bolted. No one was in the room with me. My heart was racing. I didn't go back to sleep after that. I got ready for my day and went to more meetings. I have never experienced anything like this and had never heard of it happening to anyone before until I talked to a friend later that day who is into ghosts and spirits.
The next night I was apprehensive to go to bed. I had all lights on. I talked to my friend and she calmed me down a bit. I talked to the room and asked it if it had anything it wanted to tell me. I went to bed finally after midnight. I put pillows all around me. I managed to sleep and it did not happen again.
I am back home tonight and recalling my experience. I wanted to know if others have had similar situations? Do you think it will happen again or is it isolated to that hotel room? Any thoughts are encouraged. Thanks for reading.
