Legend has it that in 1927 Faith Summers, a recently wed young woman, checked into the Prescott hotel with her husband. During their stay, her husband left for cigarettes and never came back. After three days of waiting, Faith took her own life. She now roams the halls of the hotel moaning, crying, and mourning her lost marriage.
Some staff members have said they can feel Faith's presence when working in the kitchen, and when she arrives the burners on the stove will inexplicably extinguish. Hotel guests have reported seeing Faith in their rooms, crying at the end of the bed before vanishing completely.

Palo Verde East at ASU Tempe
It is rumored that a girl committed suicide in room 605 on the sixth floor of Palo Verde East, an ASU dormitory building in Tempe. Though a quick search will turn up no news stories on the event, many students throughout the years have reported seeing the girl throughout the building.
While accounts vary, it seems the girl either moans on the second floor, shrieks on the fourth floor, or makes a combination of those noises while wandering the sixth floor in a white gown.
