The Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles has a very deadly and haunted history. The strange case of Elisa Lam, The Night Stalker, and more.

The Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles has it’s share of chilling facts. When it comes to things haunted and unfortunate, this hotel had the market cornered. The Cecil Hotel in the Skid Row district of downtown Los Angeles is arguably the most haunted hotel in Los Angeles. The Cecil’s haunted legacy goes all the way back to The Great Depression. Opening in 1924, it was only a few years before the Depression filled the hotel with transients, and suicides on the regular. You can listen to the Ghost Town Podcast episode on the Cecil Hotel here.

Like a lot of people, there are those wondering about a Cecil Hotel booking. The big question? Is the Cecil Hotel open for business? No, unfortunately the Cecil Hotel Stay On Main is not open, as it is currently being renovated. The Cecil Hotel website is unavailable as well.

It closed back in 2017 after it was sold to hotelier Richard Born for $30 million in 2014. It was renamed Stay on Main after being taken over by new owners in 2007, who purchased the property for $26 million. They gave it a $100 million makeover.

The hotel is scheduled for completion in October 2021 (just in time for Halloween?) but it is currently closed.  Renovations will include 299 hotel rooms and 264 affordable residential units. The roof, which was the location of the Cecil Hotel water tanks where Elisa Lam’s body was found, will apparently be converted into a recreational space for hotel guests.

Exploring the Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles has a long history of hauntings, crime, danger, and mystery. A good place to start is The Deadly Haunted History of the Cecil Hotel.
