The Pontchartrain Hotel is one of many haunted hotels in New Orleans.
There are said to be at least 25 different ghosts haunting the Pontchartrain Hotel. Two sisters are the most well-known ghosts to make a showing, although a royal countess in very elegant clothing has also been spied in the hallways. The apparition of an old man makes his rounds through the haunted Pontchartrain as well, searching for “Meagan”. Elevators are said to stop inexplicably at different floors when no one is on them. There are cold spots in the hotel as well. But the creepiest tale about the Pontchartrain Hotel is that vampires take lodging there. Visitors claim to have encountered this undead souls on their way to late night parties in the French Quarter.
The building was constructed in 1927 on St. Charles Avenue in the Garden District. It was named after a member of LouisXVI’s court, the Count de Pontchartrain.
