I had an odd experience in the Imperial Hotel in Cripple Creek, Colorado, and wrote a story about it.

Here is the link

Many believe the Stanley Hotel is haunted, having reported a number of cases of ghostly activity, primarily in the ballroom. Kitchen staff have reported to have heard a party going on in the ballroom, only to find it empty. People in the lobby have allegedly heard someone playing the ballroom's piano; employees investigating the music purportedly find nobody sitting at the piano. Employees believe that particular ghost is of Freelan O. Stanley's wife, who used to be a piano player. In one guest room, people claim to have seen a man standing over the bed before running into the closet. This same apparition is allegedly responsible for stealing guests' jewelry, watches, and luggage. Others reported to have seen ghosts in their rooms in the middle of the night, simply standing in their room before disappearing.
The Syfy television show Ghost Hunters was invited to investigate the hotel. The manager showed them the various places where these alleged ghost activity has occurred. Ghost Hunters discovered some rational reasons for the various phenomena, such as wind and pipes. However, they could not decipher incidents in the ballroom. Ghost Hunters also claimed to experience other paranormal occurrences, such as seeing people in hallways then hiding and hearing children running and playing on the floor above them. The biggest alleged occurrence was that during changing of the film in the camera, a table jumped two feet in the air. Ghost Hunter Jason stayed the night in the room with the "ghost thief"; he stated that the bed moved, the closet doors unlocked and opened and his thick glass by the bed cracked open on the inside. The Stanley Hotel was also the lockdown site for the TV show Ghost Adventures on October 15, 2010.

There is a Hotel in Colorado that posts jobs here on Coolworks and they were on a show called Ghost Adventures on the Travel channel. Anyone remember the name of the Hotel?

I have worked at a couple that have claimed they were haunted.  Some of the stories at the Kay El Bar Ranch I tossed out.  Lights would go on and off without anyone being in some of the rooms.  But it was discovered that the 80-some year-old building had repairs over the years with 'part-time' handymen.  It was redone by someone that knew what they were doing and the lights were normal after that.  But there was the one story that is difficult to discount.  The only two people on the ranch were in the office, when they heard someone playing the piano in the living room.  When they turned the corner to enter the room the playing stopped.

Alta's Rustler Lodge is haunted by a female ghost.  It has been seen by several guests over the years and especially over the summers by the caretakers.  The entire Little Cottonwood Canyon in that Salt Lake area is said to be haunted.  People have spotted ghost railroad crews walking down the road.  During the mining heydays of the late 1800's, it was a very dangerous place.  It is believed in one of the years more than 500 murders took place, and it was called the bloodiest town west of Kansas for awhile.

I've heard the North Rim is haunted but I never heard any specifics.

Someone mentioned to me while I was at the Basin Harbor Club, in Vermont that all the areas ghosts were friendly...but that was only one person that told me that.  The place has been run by the same family for more than 125 years...and some battles of the War of 1812 were nearby I guess it's possible as far as background goes.
