Quebec Trip #2: Ghosts in the Hotel?

In May we took a vacation to the Old City of  Quebec, Canada. In this second blog, we'll share stories of ghosts who were said to haunt the hotel we stayed in (which we won't mention here, but you can find it on the previous blog). 

VISITORS' GHOSTLY ENCOUNTERS - Since Tom and I (Rob) are paranormal investigators, we sometimes mention that when we visit places, to learn if anyone has a ghost story. As it turned out, there were some stories of paranormal encounters right where we were staying.  A couple of people in the hotel were nice enough to share their experiences or stories they heard about paranormal happenings in the hotel (a former bank). All of the pre-reported hauntings occurred on the 6th and 7th floors, so we had to explore and check it out

Here are the stories from others, and then we'll get to our experiences: 
1) HAUNTED PHONE - In one of the rooms a phone has been reported to ring nightly at 2:02 a.m. and there's never anyone on the other end.

2) WHO'S THAT MAN? - While in a room on the 6th or 7th floor, a concierge had just brought up a visitor's luggage when he looked up at the large mirror in the room. It was there he saw a man sitting at a desk looking at him. When the concierge turned around there was no one sitting at the desk, just as there was no one else in the room when he entered it. 

OUR INVESTIGATION - Tom, Rob, Nick and Mike all ventured up to the 6th and 7th floors. It was on the 7th floor that Rob and Nick both developed a pain in the back of their heads just outside of room 728 (possibly the ghost sharing pain of death). When 2 people feel the exact same thing at the same time, it's not a coincidence. It's a message from someone who died and stayed behind as a ghost.

MALE GHOST - On the 7th floor, I (Rob) sensed a male who was in his 50s, with dark hair, beard, wore a dark suit and spoke french (which would make sense in Quebec). I also heard the name "Jon" which is likely "Jean" (in French). This was likely the man that appeared in the mirror to the concierge months before. I sketched him out when there and found a photo on-line that looked like my sketch. 

FEMALE GHOST - Perhaps the woman that Tom sensed is the one responsible for making the phone calls at 2:02 a.m. nightly in one room on the 7th floor. .At the same time, I got chills only on my left leg (meaning that there was something standing next to me!), and I had difficulty breathing, too!.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
