Spending Halloween in the Houston area should include at least one night at the Hotel Galvez in Galveston.
It is said that the spirit of a lovelorn woman, Audra, who committed suicide on the 5th floor is still there. You see, she was waiting for her beloved, a sailor, to return from a voyage when, one day, she received news that her fiancé's ship had sunk during a powerful storm and then killed herself.
Guests and employees have noted unexplained phenomena, including flickering lights, doors that open and close, unexplained footsteps and voices on the floor. Even sightings of the woman in the 5th floor hallways have been reported.
