“I mean, we enjoyed filming the hotel. You know, we got these incredible exterior shots but what I thought was, it just fascinates me that people can ascribe such supernatural feelings towards something that is quite normal.”
They introduced a separate part of the hotel named Stay on Main for hotel guests, with the other floors being kept aside at the Cecil Hotel for Cecil residents and low-budget travellers.
Stay on Main was the hotel which 21-year-old Candian student Elisa Lam stayed at in January 2013 as part of her travels along the West Coast.
Sadly, her body was discovered on February 19, 2013, 20 days after she went missing in a water tank on the roof of the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles.
Hotel staff and maintenance workers at the hotel discovered her body when investigating guest complaints of problems with the hotel’s water supply and water pressure.
Lam’s autopsy report was not released until four months after her death, which concluded the manner of her death was accidental drowning, with bipolar disorder playing a contributing role.
