#2. The Banff Springs Hotel, Canada
The home of a plethora of ghost stories and mysterious happenings is the Banff Springs Hotel of Canada. Locals tell tales of the Timberline Lodge of Stephen King and Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining family was murdered in cold-blood in room 873. Others talk of reappearing doormen who vanish into thin air. But if you think you can deal with the supernatural rep, then you’re in for a real treat here. The handsome hotel oozes Scottish Baronial styles, is shrouded by the fir-dressed peaks of the Canadian Rockies, and offers access to the iconic ski fields of Jasper and Banff.
