Over the last few decades, the beautiful Hotel del Coronado had been profiled in a variety of media stories and TV ghost programs. It probably doesn't hurt business.
In 1989, attorney Alan May encountered the scary televised lips and eyes of 19th century "suicide" Kate Morgan on the television in Room 3502 (the room's number today is 3312 ). Kate had been jilted by a con man who got her pregnant. Alan claimed she "transported" him back to the fateful day when the con man returned -- and shot her! When the Office of Scientific Investigation and Research (whatever that is) conducted their own high tech"ghostbuster" operation in the room, 37 "abnormalities" were detected in 24 hours.
Orville Redenbacher, the popcorn king, lived at the Hotel del Coronado from 1976 until his death at age 88 in 1995. He hasn't popped up, in any form.
