If the latest horror movie didn't tingle your toes, then maybe one of these haunted hotels will make you sweat.

According to lifestyle and entertainment site Thrilist.com, there are over 10 in-service hotels around the world which have reported sightings and occurrences of paranormal activity.

Fans of Stephen King's thriller, The Shining, can stay at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park in Colorado, US which inspired the movie.

The creepy children in the movie can apparently still be heard giggling and running around on the fourth floor, especially near room 418.

According to Paranormal.about.com, this particular room is haunted by children ghosts. Guests have complained about noisy kids or playing noises even though no kids were staying at the hotel at that time.

Hotel founder F.O. Stanley and his wife were seen passing through the lobby or playing the piano in the music room, reported Thrillist.com. Former employees of the hotel are also said to still be 'seen' carrying on their duties.

Even if you are not keen to stay overnight here, tourists can always visit the hotel for a ghost tour.

Rooms on the second and fourth floor are the most popular and creepy, reported HauntedHotels.com, and cost more.

Another haunted hotel closer to home is Australia's Russell Hotel.

Located in one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Sydney, Australia, the establishment used to be a sailor's hostel and Room 8, in particular, is said to be haunted by a sea man who wanders down the hallways or watches guests sleep.

Along with the room, guests can book a package which includes a ghost tour offered by the hotel. They will be entertained with 'true' stories of murder, suicide, hangings, hauntings and ghosts.
