Perfect! And they could sell Halloween stuff in the lobby in the month leading up to Halloween.
Other than that they could rent the place out for horror movie shoots.

Well it was the inspiration for a series of American Horror story.

"American Horror Story: Hotel" Exists in Real Life

It is now October, 2017.

For all those intrigued w/ this hotel, there will be a new TV show called Horror at the Cecil Hotel starting Oct 16th on the Investigation Discovery channel:

People need to seriously stay away from this hotel. The Elisa Lam case should render this a no-brainer.

"Elisa Lam" spelled backwards is "LAM ELISA" which is the name of the standard test for TB, and there was a TB outbreak right around when the girl stayed there.

Also, the clothing the girl wore and the events surrounding her death are a dead ringer for the Japanese movie "Dark Water", which came out in 2002.

Many other paranormal phenomenon surrounding this case (deep state cloaking prototypes are also involved) but safe to say, it's probably the weirdest death in all of American history.

OK, so I watched the TV show, Horror of the Cecil Hotel show featuring the Elisa Lam story. Here's how the show portrayed things:

- It was never said that she had any kind of mental issue nor taking any meds

- It said all the hotel employees were interviewed, which it didn't say how many that was, but it showed them interviewing 2 on the (just hour-long) show. They really made the front-desk check-in guy to be a suspicious type

- They portrayed the access to the water tank to be quite a feat to get to & didn't say anything about it being open to the public or tampered w/ in any way.

- It didn't mention anything about any paranormal forces being involved

- It did show the elevator video showing Elisa acting peculiar & there was mention about a 1-min lapse in the video, but the police don't think the video was tampered w/

- If she was found naked, the show didn't say if there were clothes nearby.

- Her cell phone was never found

- About a month after her death, a mysterious post on her blog/website showed a tarot symbol meaning that a person wanted to be alone in solitude. The police thought that was like a mockery from the killer to hint that possibly she wanted to die alone (maybe to look like she committed suicide)

- The coroner report just said accidental drowning w/ no evidence of any other method of death (NOT strangling, drugs in system, etc.) This shows she's alive one minute & drowned the next, but I don't believe she was in some mental state to just jump in the tank herself.

- It did show that she met some seemingly nice/helpful guy when she first arrived to L.A., who gave her his # to genuinely be a friend if she needed help finding herself around town. They interviewed him, but he proved he wasn't in L.A. anymore around the time she was killed.

I personally think some seedy hotel guest character (& there were a LOT) OR a hotel employee killed her & dumped her body up there late at night & they just never caught the guy. Overall, it was a well-explained episode & I hope they find out who did it some day.
