Sleep with the ghosts at this haunted hotel in Arizona

Located on a hill overlooking the ghost town of Jerome and the surrounding Verde Valley, the Jerome Grand Hotel awaits your visit.

The Jerome Grand Hotel in Jerome, Arizona is a historic and infamous haunted hotel – and now they're challenging you to sleep in their most haunted room (if you can!): Room 32!

The Jerome Grand Hotel was originally a hospital; the United Verde Hospital, which opened in 1927. It was built to serve the copper mining community in Jerome, which was once a thriving mining town. After the hospital closed in 1950, the building sat vacant for decades. In 1994, it was purchased and converted into the Jerome Grand Hotel, which opened to the public in 1996.

The hotel has retained much of its original architecture and charm, offering a vintage experience. Many rooms are decorated with antique furnishings and the ambiance is reminiscent of its early 20th century roots. Despite its historic character, the hotel offers modern comforts such as Wi-Fi, private baths and an on-site restaurant, The Asylum, which serves American cuisine with scenic views.

But since moving from hospital to hotel, it has become a little spooky. Guests and staff have reported numerous ghost sightings, unexplained noises and other supernatural occurrences. The most famous ghost is said to be that of a former hospital maintenance man named Claude Harvey, who was found dead in the elevator shaft in 1935. His death remains a mystery, adding to the hotel's eerie appeal.

But none of that compares to the horror you can find in Room 32. The room has been the scene of many tragedies, including two alleged suicides: one occurred when a man rolled off the balcony, and another with a fatal gunshot wound to the head. Now Room 32 is the most sought after among paranormal fans!
