Psychic and medium Chip Coffey, known most recently for his consulting on A&E’s Paranormal State, will be coming to town today to seek out the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver‘s “Lady in Red”.

Back in the 1940s, a lady by the name of Jennie Pearl Cox was a regular at the Fairmont Hotel’s ballroom. Tragically, she was killed in a car crash outside the hotel in 1944. She died in her favorite outfit, an elegant red dress. Her ghost has been seen on the 14th floor of the hotel where she causes the elevator to make unscheduled stops and is seen gliding down the hallways, her long red dress flowing behind her. [source]

Chip will host a Q&A session with guests at the event, with the “VIP Experience” you can meet Chip, and with “Super VIP” you can join Chip in his investigation of the hotel at around 11:30pm tonight. Tickets range from $49 to $149 for the Super VIP experience.

I have been to the Hotel Vancouver several times and have only had the elevators open inexplicably on the 11th floor, not the 14th. However, it is common knowledge among locals and hotel staff that the Lady in Red does exist and all reports have been that the spirit is not harmful.
