19: Guests and staff have reported high activity between the hours of 2-4 a.m., describing the elevator moving from floor to floor with no passengers, the smell of cigar smoke -- presumably from Walter Devereaux -- in the main lobby, the smell of perfume and the sounds dishes being moved in the Devereaux Dining Room, a young girl in Victorian clothing seen playing with a ball in various areas of the hotel, and a female apparition that peers over sleeping male guests. Another report tells that during the time the hotel served as a Naval Hospital, a chamber maid was caught in a lover's triangle and murdered by one of her jealous lovers. Her screams can still be heard in areas of the hotel and the room in which she died has had so much activity, it cannot be rented and serves as a storage room. | The Historic Hotel Colorado In 1893, Hotel Colorado arrived on the scene during a thrilling time in the history of America’s West. With its European fashioned spa, the resort surfaced onto a land of prosperity; to serve the wealthy, to house the ailing, to offer a playground to society’s elite. The Hotel Colorado’s originator, Walter Devereux, spared no expense in the creation of the "Grande Dame." The south court, the current courtyard, had a large pool in its center from which an electrically lit fountain shot a jet of water 185 feet high into the air, making an iridescent rainbow spray against the sunlight.
