Le Pavillon Hotel
Le Pavillon Hotel extends the concept of Southern hospitality across a wide array of guest services, activities and amenities. In addition to nearby attractions like the French Quarter and the historic St. Charles Streetcar, boisterous Bourbon Street and the merriment of Mardi Gras, New Orleans is also home to a special mix of spirituality and superstition.
In August 1996, Le Pavillon Hotel, a New Orleans landmark that dates to 1907, hired a paranormal research team to study the otherworldly visitors at the hotel. The group of psychics, parapsychologists, and paranormal investigators identified the overwhelming aura of a frightened and confused teenaged girl. They believe that she lived during the 1840s and is possibly named Eva, Ava, or Ada. It appears that she was preparing to embark on a ship when she was struck by a carriage and died from the resulting internal injuries. Their report also indicates the presence of a young aristocratic couple from the 1920s and a dark-suited man from the same era who is reputed to play pranks on the hotel cleaning crew.
