There are many ghosts of the San Remo Hotel that roam its halls, making it one of the most haunted hotels in San Francisco.

Why is the San Remo Haunted?

The haunted San Remo hotel was originally named The “Californian Hotel”.  The San Remo was built in San Francisco several months after the 1906 earthquake by Bank of America founder A.P. Giannini built it. The hotel was originally constructed to service the largely immigrant workforce used to rebuild the city, also it served as a primary place of stay for merchant seaman, waterfront workers, poets, journalists, and pensioners.

Many people believe that various rooms throughout the hotel are haunted. As history has it room #13, once housed an ex-prostitute who died of age and who whose body wasn’t uncovered until months after her death. Room #22 is also believed to be haunted by a male spirit who once committed suicide by slitting his wrists in the hallway bathtub. Most witnesses report seeing various shadow figures, and apparitions of male and female spirits roaming the halls and rooms. But is the San Remo Hotel Haunted?

Many people have experienced ghosts roaming the hotel building’s hallways.  Other people report having ghosts visit their rooms. The ghosts will touch them or pull them out of their beds.  Strange audible disembodied voices can be heard in rooms where there are no guests.  One of the spookiest reports of paranormal activity takes place in the 3rd floor-shared bathrooms where screams are heard within the bathroom that seems to emanate from nowhere.

Paranormal Investigation

During the night of our paranormal investigation of the San Remo Hotel in San Francisco, we decided to book several of the haunted rooms and investigate them for paranormal activity. Being that we couldn’t book the whole hotel, we knew that our EVP sessions would be limited. So we decided to focus instead documenting on our paranormal investigation using photos and video. Our photo session mostly utilized Infrared, and a high-speed shutter.

Later that night while reviewing the photos that we had captured we were shocked at what had appeared in one of the photos that we had taken.  In one of the photos, there is a transparent being that shows up.  The image appears to be that of a male carrying a baby.  Could this be the ghost from room #22 who was found dead in the bathtub after committing suicide?  We know for certain that no one was coming out of the shared bathroom that is located in this hallway.

Besides the hallway, we also picked up possible evidence of paranormal activity in room #13.  During our EVP sessions, we picked up numerous natural magnetic anomalies, and hear objects move within the room.  The haunted San Remo hotel is an amazing place to stay in SF, loaded with paranormal activity.  If you get a chance you should book a room.
