The Lam case sounds like a story for Charlie's Angels =).

But I, too, am intrigued by the place. I've read a lot about it. A while back I clicked on the link to Lam's blogs online and (wish I still had the link) it really shows she was dealing with an awful lot. I'm guessing her parents tried talking her out of travelling alone in that condition.

I have never been out to L.A. but I really want to run the marathon next year...I'm thinking I better find a nice cheap place to spend the weekend well in advance...

Here's one: Ether Fields

(From a thread on the Lam case in the True Crime forum. Apparently one can't quote from a closed thread.)

You can do it yourself by calling the hotel and booking a reservation, or going online to do it.

That's what you should have done instead of coming here and asking us.

I think the previous 6 pages were meant to do the OP a favor. Don't even bother wondering about the price.... This place is trouble.

This article linked below mentions that a company is going to lease the building from the people that bought it for $30 million. The lease is going to be $3 million..PER YEAR.

Not sure what's crazier..buying the building for $30million or leasing it for $3million per year.

I guess it depends on what kind of deal they got on the financing to buy it.

These are New York guys, so maybe compared to NYC it looks cheap...

"In an interview, Matthew Baron, the president of Simon Baron Development, said the company had not been aiming to expand into California. Simon Baron has worked with Born, and during business discussions the idea was broached. Baron and his partner, company CEO Jonathan Simon, eventually toured the property and the neighborhood.

Baron said he found the Cecil Hotel brimming with potential, and pointed to the elaborate lobby and design details throughout the building. The rebounding Historic Core also appealed.

“My partner and I walked around Downtown L.A. and we could see the change of what’s happening in the area. It was very tangible to us,” Baron said. “It checked the types of boxes of what we do out East.”"

Maybe they can turn the place into a Halloween show once a year.
