The Andrew Jackson Hotel is located at 919 Royal St. in the heart of the haunted French Quarter. Haunted New Orleans legend tells, that on this site which the hotel now sits was once the site of an old New Orleans all-boy's boarding school. The school was destroyed in the great fire of New Orleans, 1788. Five boys were said to have perished in the blaze. And still haunt the present building.
Over the years, guests have reported hearing children playing in the courtyard in the middle of the night, despite the fact that the courtyard was deserted (at least by the living!) Other guests have reported sighting a ghostly figure resembling General Andrew Jackson walking through the hotel. According to one desk clerk, the hauntings usually remain restricted to the second floor hallway and staircase leading down to the first floor lobby. However, there are also reports that ghostly activity occurs on the first floor and in the courtyard cottages in the rear of the main building.
