Celebrate Halloween 2011 In San Francisco With A Trick Or Treat Upon Check-In
October 27, 2011
SAN FRANCISCO - Calling all superheroes, vampires and princesses! Trick or treat for ghostly goods upon check-in at the haunted Hilton San Francisco Financial District. On Halloween, October 31, 2011, Hilton San Francisco Financial District guests may choose from a variety of treats such as Hilton HHonors points, complimentary movie and candy. Arrive in costume, and you may win a free hotel stay for one night on our 13th floor…if you can find it. If you should win, we’ll gladly honor your prize on a floor that actually exists!
Haunted HistoryThe historic landmark site of Hilton San Francisco Financial District is located along The Barbary Coast - San Francisco’s original shoreline. A rough neighborhood known for its corruption and crime, a vigilante committee formed in 1851 and held “necktie” (hanging) parties across the street in Portsmouth Plaza to discourage criminal behavior. Our neighborhood is far removed from its sorted past today, but if you watch closely, you may see a haunted figure with a noose around his neck crossing the bridge that connects Portsmouth Plaza to our hotel.
In 1900, the Hall of Justice was built here at 750 Kearny Street. Along with courtrooms and police headquarters, the Hall of Justice also housed the San Francisco County morgue, rumored to be located in the basement. Today, people often hear singing and see visions of a lady dressed in black Victorian attire on the lowest level of our basement garage. Don’t be alarmed if you find a black cat crossing your path – it is only the spirit of Clarence, our former house cat who will undoubtedly bring you good luck!
