Visit a Haunted Hotel: Hotel Ändra is one of Seattle’s most haunted hotels, according to a roundup by Seattle Curbed. It was built in 1926, and a past employee is the ghostly eternal guest that supposedly haunts the place. Sounds of jazz music and breaking glass can be heard from the 9th floor at times, but the noises immediately stop when the living attempt to investigate. A woman in 1930s-era clothing has also been seen, appearing to guests as they lay in bed. It is believed that she’s a former employee of the hotel who committed suicide in the 1960s by jumping from a window in the hotel. Hotel Ändra | 2000 4th Avenue | 206-448-8600
