Juneau, AK is home to one of the most haunted places the state, Alaskan Hotel and Bar. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.

The History

The Alaskan Hotel opened in 1913 and is the oldest operating hotel in Alaska. It was a prime location, near the steamship docks and central to the business district. The hotel had a seamy side as a place for legal prostitution and the sale of illegal alcohol throughout its history. While operating as the Northlander, it was shut down and condemned in 1977 by the Fire Marshal. The new owners have restored it to its Victorian elegance.

The Hauntings

A woman who was driven to prostitution when her husband left to mine in the hills is said to haunt the hotel. When the husband returned and found out about her new trade, he killed her. There are claims of being touched by her or see her sitting on the bed in room 218. 

There is another spirit you can sometimes see in the mirror by room 308 as you walk up the stairs. Several guests have had so much activity in Room 219 that they have asked for a new room.  An employee thought someone was walking up to the desk as he lifted his head, he saw a blond girl in a white dress that disappeared.  

The most terrorizing story referred to as the "Bloody Sailor" occurred in 315. A sailor who was in town asked to reserve the haunted room on the third floor, so he was promptly and well accommodated. That night, there was a commotion in the room, and when police responded, they discovered blood splattered all about the walls and a broken window. It turns out that this sailor jumped right through his window, and fell to the ground in the alley below. A witness in the room below his on the second floor had her window broken as his body bounced between the hotel and the adjacent building on the way down. Amazingly, the sailor beat the odds and survived, and was given care after managing to make it to the street from the alley. To this day, there is no explanation for his jump or the bloody mess left in the room. Shockingly, the sailor survived this incredible day. Could it reflect the unexplained power of those that dare stay in the hotel?
