This grand hotel is believed to have quite a few hauntings surrounding it. Built in 1889 as luxurious lodgings for mine investors and other wealthy people, it has a few apparitions residing on its premises. One of the apparitions is a young girl, a 1930s woman wearing a purple dress, a saloon dancer from the 1920s, a headless former chef, a cowboy and his girlfriend, and a "Lady in Blue" who floats up the grand staircase. Maybelle Geiser, former owner, lived in Room 302 and it is said the room is filled with paranormal activity. Her ghost has reportedly rearrange the guests' jewelry and ate their complimentary snacks.

  • Haunted for sure

    Stayed in one of the upper floor rooms when they reopened in the early 2000s. I want to say it was November 2004. Got cold in the room and woke up with cherry cigar smoke being blown in my face. I could also feel fingers around my throat. I realized after I woke that the temp dropped like 30 degrees and I could also see my breath. Never had any experience like this before or after.

    I had a job interview there, and it was in the cellar. I felt like someone was standing behind me breathing on me. but no one was behind me. There was only me and the lady interviewing me sitting in front of me. I was shaking so bad I just wanted the interview to be over. When I Stood up. I felt like someone was pushing on me. I speed walk out of there. lol. I believe on ghost haunted places. I love the experience, but it kinda scary too. lol!

    Hi, My great grandmother live on the second floor when the hotel was not taking guest. Her name was Ethel, she was often called by Marybell . She was Dutch and very little English, very sweet and was in a wheelchair when I knew her. She always wore a long dress and didn’t like animal or animal hair.. She would gag.. I’ve taken the tour before and MOST of their facts are correct. Some are a little skewed but that’s what happens when stories are told by so many different people. Upstairs there used to be a candy shop and beauty shop on the Bttm floor. My mom still has one of the chairs. I often took black liquorish shaped pipes out of that old candy shop..In the Saloon a couple were shot because she was found cheating on her husband. My grandfather lived in the room in the basement while running the Bar and and restaurant he later died of a heart attack. The room most haunted to me was the one facing Main Street.. The entire room violently shoot one time is kids were exploring one summer.. My Unkle was in the hallway and turned white.. It was ONLY the room that shook like an earthquake.I plan on staying the night there late October. I love hearing stories about it and I know SO MANY MORE! If I do see anything I’d hope to see my grandmother, great grandmother and grandpa hopefully roaming around the hotel.

  • Beautifully Restored and so pleasant

    We stayed over for two nights. I had stayed a couple years ago, but my friend had not. The staff were attentive, and polite. The food and cocktails were delightful. The tour was very informative and interesting (Amber did a stellar job)! Relax and enjoy the simple pleasures of downtown Baker City.

  • Best spirits are in the bar.

    I’ve investigated the Grand a few times. Other than a few parts being creepy, (basement it really cramped, claustrophobic, stacked high with supply, difficult to see due to supply and terrible lighting) it is a magnificent hotel. Like you stepped off the street into the 1800s. The rooms are magnificent and period authentic. But, I got one single inaudible EVP. Otherwise, I was able to successfully find likely solutions to some of the claims. Doors in the kitchen opening....a series of three entry and exit doors easily create a vacuum suction. A blue light on the second floor...it’s a huge stained glass window and crystal chandeliers. Light hits it right, that blue could easily bounce. I’m not saying it’s “not haunted”. But I think people get hung up on the idea and the hotel makes money because of it. So of course the hotel plays it up. But Baker City is a great town and the hotel is like nothing you’ll ever experience. Really suggest their rib eye!

    OIn July 18th we spent the night at the Geiser Hotel. I took photos with my camera of the hotel but none in our room. On the 19th as we left I began to go over the photos I took. And there was a photo of our room! Neither my partner not myself took the photo. As we looked closer a lamp was on and above on the wall was a figure of a boy!
