Giving the fictional Overlook Hotel’s Room 237 a run for its money as the scariest hotel room in the world, Room 209 in Illinois’ Wingate Hotel has been a hotbed of alleged paranormal activity over the years, with many guests reporting strange noises coming from the room.
In 2003 those ghoulish noises were recorded on camera, the audio and video of which surfaced this week!
It was on September 13th of 2003 that several guests phoned in noise complaints to the front desk, reporting that a strange scream was emanating from the infamous Room 209 – a room that was unoccupied at the time. The hotel’s security manager went up to the second floor to investigate, an investigation that was captured by hallway security cameras.
