The Hotel del Coronado sits on Orange Avenue in Coronado, California and has become somewhat of a conversation piece in the paranormal community as well as a historic unsolved murder site.
Though the Hotel del Coronado is considered ‘haunted’, the paranormal activity is targeted to one specific part of the hotel, Room 3327, but let’s take a step back to the 1800s where the historic hotel was the place of a mysterious crime scene.
The story began on November 29, 1892 when Kate Morgan, who was in her late twenties at the time, was found dead on the beech steps of the Hotel del Coronado.
Though her death was attributed to a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, a San Francisco lawyer, Alan May, suggested in the 1980s that her death was probably not suicide as the bullet in her head didn’t match her gun which would make the case an unsolved crime that will probably never be concluded.
Kate Morgan’s murder is still unsolved if you believe it wasn’t a case of suicide, but the mystery of her ghost still lingers around the property for guests and visitors to experience.
Morgan stayed in Room 3327 for five days before her mysterious death and it’s said that her ghost still wanders the hotel, though she has been primarily seen at her old guest room where she stayed in the days before her death.
Guests have reported a vast list of unexplained activity including flickering lights, inexplicable scents and sounds, phantom wind and rapid changes in room temperature, moving items, and the television turning on and off. Doors are said to randomly open and close on their own and there have been numerous occasions where visitors have heard unexplainable footsteps and voice.
Despite all this, Kate Morgan’s old Room 3327 is the most requested room by guests at the Hotel del Coronado. Join the discussion below and let us know if you would like to spend the night here.
