The History

The historic Camino Real Hotel, known originally as Hotel Paso del Norte, has been serving discriminating travelers since it first opened in 1912.

The hotel, purchased and renovated in 2004 by Camino Real, a hotel group owned by the Mexican company Grupo Empresarial Ángeles, has hosted dignitaries and celebrities throughout its one-hundred-plus years of service. Amelia Earhart, the film star Gloria Swanson, and Eleanor Roosevelt were among the many famous guests. Luis Terrazas, wealthy former governor of Chihuahua, rented the top floor of the hotel when he fled Chihuahua during the 1910 Mexican Revolution, bringing his family and twenty-seven servants with him. The hotel terrace was a favored spot to watch skirmishes between soldiers and the revolutionaries.

The hotel also has ties to Pancho Villa and the Mexican Revolution, and many would watch the war from the highest floors of the hotel.

Today, the hotel is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

The Hauntings

The Paso Del Norte Hotel has inherited many ghost stories throughout the years. One of the most famous stories is that of a bride who was left at the altar after her fiance ran off with her bridesmaid. So incredibly distraught by the betrayal, she committed suicide by throwing herself from the hotel.

The legend tells us of her ghost still wanders the hotel, even to this day, wearing the white garment that she wore as a bride. She is always seen with a melancholy expression, often spotted in the basement of the hotel

Many of the phantoms from Pancho Villa's army have been spotted on the top floors of the hotel, reenacting those troubled and violent times.
