San Carlos Ghost Tour

May 25, 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm


…Join us for a ghost tour like no other at the historic Hotel San Carlos…

The Hotel San Carlos opened on March 19, 1928, and just weeks after its grand opening, a young woman jumped from the seventh-story hotel to her death. This was only the beginning of the hauntings at this legendary hotel. 

Join the Phoenix Art Deco Society for a unique and spine-tingling experience on May 25th at the historic Hotel San Carlos in Phoenix. This ghost tour will take you on a journey through this iconic hotel’s haunted and historic halls and rooms, where you’ll hear about the eerie legends and ghostly sightings that have occurred in the height of the Jazz Age and beyond. Led by an experienced and knowledgeable guide, you’ll learn about the hotel’s dark past and the paranormal activity that still lingers within its walls.

From unexplained noises to ghostly apparitions, you never know what you might encounter on this haunted tour. Whether you’re a skeptic or a believer, this ghost tour will leave you with a newfound appreciation for the supernatural…

Want more? Our guests are welcome to join us before the tour across the street at the Hilton Garden Inn for a drink or two, and we will walk over together for the tour. We ask that you dress to impress the spirits of the Hotel San Carlos in your Art Deco or vintage-inspired attire!
