The Driskill Hotel in Downtown Austin, Texas is lovely, luxurious, romantic, historic, and... haunted?
There are many ghost stories that line the halls of the hotel, which was opened in the 1800s and still features many and even creepy oil paintings from the time. The Driskill easily landed a spot on TexasUFOs.com's list of "Most Haunted Places in Texas." But for this article, we're going to focus on what might be the most haunted Driskill hotel room of all... Room 525.
While many parts of the hotel have some haunting history- the original owner died in the hotel and a little girl once fell down the stairs to her death, among other tragic stories.
According to legend, two women who were on their honeymoon stayed in the now-infamous Room 525 together one night. For some unknown reason, both the women committed suicide, and their bodies were discovered in the room's bathroom. These women were given the sad nicknames of the "Suicide Brides" and the Driskill Hotel decided to close the room and put bricks over it. But it is open again today for brave guests. Unsurprisingly, many guests have reported strange occurrences while staying in Room 525.
Guests who stay in the room sometimes report odd water leaks that don't have any origin, ghostly apparitions (specifically of a bride), and other frightening experiences.
One couple who adored the hotel and stayed in the room in September 2016ended up checking out in the middle of night after being spooked by flickering lights and mysterious knocks on the door!
