I was traveling on business and made a reservation at the Lafayette Hotel in Marietta Ohio. I knew nothing of the hotel or its stories and past. Only that it was old and kind of cool.
My room was on the 3rd floor and I had to go through a winding hallway to get there. I'm a light sleeper and woke up at 3AM when the room suddenly became very cold. I could actually see my breath and thought that maybe the air conditioner came on. I checked and it was off.
I went back to sleep and was laying on my stomach when all of a sudden I felt a weight on my body that pushed me into the mattress. I couldn't breath and I couldn't speak. After a minute or two the weight was gone. I checked around the room and nothing was there.
I went back to bed and then there was a loud knock on the door. I looked in the hall and nobody was there. When I walked back to my bed there was a hard rap on the window. I looked through the curtains and saw that nothing was there and I was four floors up. Nothing happened the rest of the night.
The next morning at breakfast I was telling my colleague what happened and the waitress asked what I was talking about. When I told her what room I was in, she asked if "it" sat on my chest. I said no, it was on my back. She says I must have been on my stomach and that happens all the time. I was freaked out and throughout the day, people at my show told me their stories.
I talked to a woman at our office who went to college in Marietta and when I mentioned the Lafayette, she said "oh yeah, it's the most haunted place she's ever been too".
If you're not afraid, stay there and see what happens.
