Is the Radisson Hotel in New Mexico Haunted?
The Radisson Hotel in Albuquerque, New Mexico is an up-scale hotel offering all the luxuries and amenities the brand has become known for, and then some. There’s something for anyone at the Albuquerque Radisson – wireless internet, in-room coffee and hot tubs for the adults, New Mexico’s first indoor water park for the kid’s, and a legendary ghost haunting experience for the paranormal adventure seekers.
Built in 1972, the Radisson Hotel is conveniently located near various spectacular tourist attractions. For ghost hunting enthusiasts, the short walk to Old Town Albuquerque presents a lot of opportunities, where reports of more than 300 ghost haunting’s have taken place. But why leave when you can experience paranormal activity right here at the Radisson Hotel?
No one really knows what happened in the Radisson Hotel, but the haunting reports just keep coming in, so much that the haunting is almost undeniable. Most of the attention focuses on the third floor, but since this area was never renovated, it is not accessible by the public, only adding to the mystery for guests who hear the strange noises from above.
Many visitors have reported eerie noises coming from the room above theirs. Reports such as scratching, bumping and knocking to the screams of what sounds like a woman. And many times, there is no one staying in the room above the guest(s) who reported these incidents. For those guests on the second floor there is a guarantee that no one is above them since the third floor was not renovated.
Being shaken awake in the middle of the night is a claim from more than one guest, saying it felt like a child’s hands shaking them. But when they wake up, there is no one there. This particular paranormal anomaly only seems to happen to female guests.
With the third floor closed, management at the Radisson Hotel in Albuquerque makes every effort to make sure no one travels up to this area. In fact, there are only a few ways to get to this floor. When you do arrive, people claim that a hot gust of air hits you the moment the elevator doors open. Then again, this is New Mexico – the weather is not known for its frigid atmosphere – and the third floor isn’t likely air-conditioned if it’s closed off.
There is a rumor that a bar exists on the third floor, part of which is in immaculate condition and the rest of which is visibly destroyed. While many claim to have seen this bar, a number of employees who work (or worked) at the haunted Radisson maintain that there never was a bar up there. Managers of the hotel tend to deny its existence as well. We cannot verify it as truth or fiction, but the story goes that broken glass has been found on many occasions, always appearing freshly broken (no signs of dust anyway).
Could it be that the owners of the Radisson Hotel in Albuquerque know the third floor is haunted? Perhaps it is all a gimmick to bring in phenomenon seekers? This is one haunted hotel where a respectable group of paranormal investigators would certainly help to answer a lot of lingering questions.
