As per the Winnipeg Architecture Foundation this hotel was originally built in 1914 and was later used as a military barracks during the First World War. However, most of what is left of the original structure is gone and has been rebuilt.
The following report was sent into our website by Shanna on January 24, 2015:
“It was a typical day last summer of 2014. I was going to the Marlborough hotel with my partner to get his student cheque, it was in the afternoon around 2p.m.
I had to use the bathroom so I went to the bathrooms by the main entrance. When I walked towards the bathrooms I noticed this woman coming from the stairwell wearing old fashioned clothes like a maid’s, and she was walking fairly fast. I didn’t think much of it and I thought maybe there’s something going on to why she would be wearing those clothes. She turned into the women’s washroom and at this point I was right behind her. I watched her walk into the bathroom stall and close the door half way, than she stood behind the door. I was thinking “that’s weird”.
As I went into the stall next to her, I was watching her heels as I sat down and then I got this real creepy feeling because she was just standing there and everything literally went quiet. I then covered my ears cuz I thought what is this woman doing? Is she gonna kill herself?
I flushed the toilet and I looked down, it wasn’t even three seconds, and she was gone! I got out of the stall and the stall door was in the exact same position as she had it.
I got out of the bathroom and told him about it and he was amazed. I’ve had past experiences before so I’m not scared of what happened, but since then I’m curious of what’s roaming around that hotel.”
