Stay on Main Hotel

You are here Home  > Hotels and Inns >  Stay on Main Hotel

Formerly the Cecil Hotel, this location has been a site of murder, suicide, and once even housed serial killers Richard Ramirez and Jack Unterweger; the last infamous case involved that of Elisa Lam who was last seen on security cameras hiding from an unseen force in the elevator before her corpse was discovered in a water tank on the roof. Psychics report a dark energy lurks here and that the hotel was possibly cursed.
