Ghostly Visitors at Historic Hotels: Halloween at The Pfister, Milwaukee

October 14, 2008 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The PfisterTalk about service. Old Pfister himself comes back from the dead to make sure his guests are well taken care of at his namesake hotel, Milwaukee's finest, the Victorian masterpiece called The Pfister. During the Halloween season, the Historic Hotels of America talk up their ghostly visitors. And The Pfister, celebrated for its 23rd floor martini lounge, Victorian art collection, and indulgent Well Spa, has confirmed sightings of its founder, Charles Pfister:

A "visitor" has been spotted surveying the lobby from the grand staircase, strolling the minstrel's gallery above the ballroom, and passing through the ninth floor storage area. He is always described in roughly the same terms: "older," "portly," "smiling," and "well-dressed." Upon seeing a portrait of Mr. Pfister, witnesses have sworn it was him. If the visitor is Charles Pfister, then he seems to be pleased with the current state of his hotel.
