Booking.com: Haunted Hotels

Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam Help You Get Into the Spirit

Editor's Pick

It's almost Halloween -- and what better way to celebrate than to book a room in one of America's famous haunted hotels? Wieden & Kennedy Amsterdam and travel booking site Booking.com goes beyond the homophones that marked prior campaigns with a new spot set in the Queen Anne Hotel in San Francisco, a hotel that was formerly a school, known to be haunted by its headmistress, Miss Mary.

A pretty terrifying piece, the spot is filmed just like a scary-movie trailer. A media partnership will Fandango will align the spot with trailer searches and movie ticket purchases, cementing that connection.

The campaign also features six other hotels in movie-style posters hand-painted by Akiko Stehrenberger. They will be placed in movie theater lobbies at the end of the month.

And starting today, customers can search for haunted properties on Booking.com -- whether "Pyscho" or "The Shining" is more to their taste.
