Have you ever wanted to know the stories of the people who have lived in your home before you...or the people who have died in it?

Journey through the eerily quiet halls of this 120-year-old hotel in the heart of downtown Los Angeles and learn the stories of its past visitors. Over the decades' misinformation and urban legends have arisen regarding the many suicides, murders, and accidental deaths that have occurred in this building.

Intensive research was conducted on this hotel. Police reports, newspaper articles, coroner's reports, and the like were uncovered and the truth of what really happened has- for the first time- been brought to the surface in one complete collection.

Although this hotel has a troubled past, it also has historical significance. It was designated Los Angeles Historic-Cultural Monument #288 by The Cultural Heritage Commission. You will be left with a comprehensive knowledge of this iconic hotel including what movies were filmed there over the years and noteworthy people who have been its guests. Travel back to old-time Los Angeles and get a sense of what it was like to be a guest at the hotel during its glory days.
