is a budget hotel with 600 guest rooms (originally 700).
Constructed by 1927, the hotel was intended for business travelers but in the 1950s it gained a reputation as a residence for transients.
A portion of the hotel was refurbished in 2007 after new owners took over.
The Hotel is known for its criminal activity to include three murders and also several suicides.
Most notably, the hotel was the reported residence for serial killers
Richard Ramirez in 1985 and Jack Unterweger in 1991.
Recently, in February 2013, the body of Elisa Lam, a 21-year-old Canadian girl, was found inside one of the water supply tanks on the hotel roof.
The body was discovered after patrons complained of low water pressure"
Cecil according to this site -
The name Cecil is an English baby name. In English the meaning of the name Cecil is: Blind
(from the Roman clan name Caecilius).
Which seems rather ironic that a hotel named Cecil has so many mirrors in it.
Not to mention that creepy carpet pattern in the room above.
I wonder if that might be room 237 by any chance?
|I wondered where I saw that creepy carpet pattern before.|
This place has way too much baggage for me to ever feel comfortable spending the night in it.
And way too many mirrors for a hotel that never seems to notice what's going on inside it's walls.
This latest incident has to be the most creepy one yet.
I hope there is a breakthrough in this case, as it seems more than suicide was involved here.
