Hello. I've been wanting to share my experiences working for the Kahler Grand Hotel in Rochester,MN. I will post all the experiences here I had, along
with experiences guests have shared with me.
This is the last experiences I had, after this I never had any encounters with paranormal at the Kahler Hotel, or anywhere else, I think. This
happened two months before I quit, this place had terrible management at the time.
This hotel has 11 floors, the 11th floor being the 'international' hotel, for rich peoples, many from Saudia Arabia, Iran, come here, Osama Bin Laden
was here even I was told, he was one scary looking guy. Please bare with me, as I have to explain a few things for validity. Half of the 10th floor
was being remodeled to become 'international' at the time. Every floor is an 'E' shape, think hallways. The middle end is where the room service
elevators are, and are only connected to our department, and banquets. Split in half, and locked down, no one is allowed into international without a
code and there was security there constantly. So half was being remodeled, the other half, was only allowed for construction crews. A few months
before this, all stairways were locked from the outside, you cannot get in anywhere without the right key card, you can only get out. I was delivering
a order to a worker close to midnight, as I got to the corner where the room was, I knocked on the door, "room service." As I said that this child
comes out from the corner and he asks me "Can you tell me where the pool is"? He had a striped shirt and jeans. I said no problem, just wait here 1
minute I have to drop this order off. I quickly dropped the tray got the ticket signed and left because I knew this was strange, how could he be up
here? I was out that door within 15 seconds. These hallways are very long, he couldn't of run that fast to get to the other end. He was gone. No one
This is the old Mayo Clinic building, the biggest best hospital in the world, they turned it into a hotel, the new Mayo Clinic is many blocks wide.
Back to the story. Before this happened a room service employee who used to operate the floors, refused to, even though the money is way better, she
would only operate the phones. She told me it was because of the ghosts. She told me a story of how she seen a little boy in a striped shirt and jeans
bouncing a ball around, it went behind a pop machine, the child followed it. He never came out, so she went to look and he wasn't there. She seen him
again, but i can't recall what the event was.
One night walking the halls, clearing the trays, picking up breakfast order panflets people hang on there door etc.. I said to myself, before I leave
this hotel, I want to see this boy. And many months later, I did, he spoke to me!
The recently married soldier.
Once, again, clearing trays at night from the halls. I look down the hall to see if there are any trays. I see a women in a very large white wedding
dress, holding hands, walking, almost gliding along, with a person dressed in camouflage, defiantly like a soldier. Something was strange about this
and I just stared. That man turned around as he opened the door to his room, look right at me. He had red all over the edges of his eyes, he looked
very scary, his eyes were kind of big, I seen the look of terror in him, but he wasn't afraid of me. I went to the room and got the number from it and
looked it up on the computer, nobody signed into that room.
I remember this being the suite, (3 interconnected rooms) on the corner of one of the halls. As I walked by I heard a voice / wind, it was very loud
it said "HHHHEEEEEEYYYYYYYYYYY" Just imagine wind and voice, very slow almost a whisper, accept LOUD. I turn around and am like trying to make out
what the # that was. I just continued on.
Another night, I walked by the same suite ( i think it was ) and the door handles are all 3 of these doors were shaking HARD. They just kept going and
going, I stood there for a few minutes just watching them in shock, I think. I was trying to figure out if someone was playing games with me? But the
way they were shaking, it was just to erratic, it was to fast. And this was well passed midnight when people were sleeping, most likely 2 am as thats
when I did my tray runs. I literally walked away when they were still shaking. I didn't have an iPhone or camera phone this was back in 2008, and I
was very poor, I didn't feel afraid of this, it was almost like, cool? Maybe all of the other experiences before this prepared me for it. IDK.
I was running hot water through our teapots and coffee pots, making sure they were clean. A security guard was watching me, we were kind of making
small talk. All of a sudden I was struck by some force in the side of my head, it jerked and came close to hitting my temple on the corner of the
metal shelf besides me. I turned around and said " did you see that? something just hit me! what the #" I was mad. He was a big guy, he liked teaching
me fighting moves, his face was pale white like he got sick, his head raised up, he just kept saying, "its ok man, its ok man, its ok" I never saw
that guy again, and he worked there for years. He must of left that same night. I was so mad that my temple almost hit the corner of the shelf.
Whew. Thats enough for now. I'm going to rename this Part One. There is so much more. I have many other stories that come from guests, some of which
showed me pictures. I might post these later today, but soon never the less. I also have a post I did on a website about this long ago and have been
emailed a few times from people telling me of there strange encounters. I will also post more stories of room service employees, we had a very high
turnover rate on overnights, but it seems that certain people experiences more. I was looking for this stuff, I really enjoyed it, I didn't think
anything could hurt me.
Thanks for stopping out. Cant wait to share more of these. I still think about going back to work there, just for the excitement, you know the more I
think about it, it really made me feel alive, and I loved it.
