    Here's one with quite a few claims for paranormal activity. Granted, it could all just be a ploy to drum up business. But I doubt it. The building is a renovated old hospital, just the kind of place one might expect ghosts to be hanging around. I might stay here this April when I visit relatives in Texas. Will I see a ghost? Stay tuned!

    Ghosts of the Emily Morgan Hotel, San Antonio, TX

    "The Emily Morgan Hotel is well renowned as one of the most haunted hotels in Texas, and is one of, if not the, most haunted location in San Antonio. People from around the world interested in the paranormal, visit the Emily Morgan for its haunted history, and many skeptics come away from their stay here, with a new found belief in ghosts.

    If you want to be in with the best chance of experiencing something paranormal, the 3rd, 7th, 9th, 11th and 12th floors are known to be the most active. During its time as a medical facility, some of these floors were used as a psychiatric facility. Guests and staff have witnessed many strange things on these floors throughout the years, as well as throughout the hotel.

    12th Floor

    This floor was used for operations when the hotel was used as a hospital. Reports are often of unexplained noises, sudden smells of alcohol, and people being touched by unseen hands.

    11th Floor

    One of the most frequent sightings occurs on the 11th floor, where the apparition of an elderly woman in a hospital gown has been seen walking along the hallway, on occasion she has been heard weeping, before walking off into one of the rooms. Also on this floor, guests often reported what sounds like a hospital gurney being wheeled along the hallway outside their rooms in the middle of the night, only when they open the door to check, the hallway is empty.

    9th Floor

    On this floor guests have reported strange things such as wine bottles sliding off tables, as well as their toilet seat being repeatedly banged up and down in the middle of the night. Sounds from unoccupied rooms are also a frequent occurrence.

    7th Floor

    Guests and staff alike often see the dark shape of human figures walking around this floor, after being seen they are said to walk through walls or doors. One family staying in one of the rooms on the 7th floor were awoken suddenly one night when all the electrical equipment turned on followed by a dark shape gliding through the room and through one of the walls.

    3rd Floor

    A guest was awoken in the middle of night to the sound of humming, and witnessed the apparition of a young girl sitting at the bottom of her bed. The young girl apparently spoke to her, asking her if she would like to sing along! The following night the guest was awoken again, around the same time as the night before. However, this time it felt as though someone had got into bed with her, with her noticing the impression in the bed and the feeling of someone pushing against the side her body. On both occasions, the woman noticed a sudden drop in temperature.

    Another guest staying on the 3rd floor experienced the sound of a woman singing in the very same room, waking both her and son.

    Haunted Elevators

    It’s quite common for an elevator to pick up faults, and the vast majority of ‘haunted elevator’ stories can be put down to faulty wiring. The elevators at the Emily Morgan however, have been repeatedly inspected with no fault being found. It’s strange then, how they seem to make calls when empty, and persistently go from 6th to the 7th floor and back again! They head past the floor that you have pressed, and inexplicably take you to the hotel basement, which was once the morgue, and then refuse to budge.

    Alamo Ghosts

    The Emily Morgan is situated overlooking the Alamo, one of the most haunted locations in Texas! At night you may just catch a glimpse of long dead soldiers if you look out of your hotel room. During the Alamo, more than 600 soldiers lost their lives. General Santana ordered the bodies of the dead Texan soldiers to be piled up and burned, including the likes of Jim Bowie and Davy Crockett. Are they still defending the area in death, or are they looking to avenge their undignified end?"===http://www.hauntedrooms.com/emily-morgan-hotel-san-antonio-tx

    Points for the disclaimer. Which then gets an immediate 'But I doubt it'.

    Copying and pasting without citing your source is plagarism.

    You have implicitly done so, but that is not clear. It would be helpful if, in future, you opened with a sentence such as "I found this interesting article at xyz".

    Uh no. I'm going to use quotation marks and cited urls just like I always do.
