Is Hotel From American Horror Story Real?

The fictional 'Hotel Cortez' on American Horror story was inspired by the real-life Cecil Hotel located in Los Angeles California, which was constructed back in 1924. The Cecil Hotel has grabbed media attention several times. The hotel is known for several suicides and murders. The hotel has actually changed its name to Stay on Main...maybe to rid of the spooky rep it has under its original name. *shudders*
So how did they come up with the name 'Hotel Cortez' for the show? Well, the fictional hotel is named after Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortez and a giant portrait made entirely of metal depicts an image of the historical figure who caused the bloody fall of the Aztec Empire. (uproxx)
Well then.
As far as Cecil hotel that inspired the new season's location, a woman by the name of Elizabeth Short, nicknamed "The Black Dahlia" was the victim of a murder in 1947. She was found with her body completely severed in half at the waist. What's her connection to the hotel? That was one of the last places she was seen before her bloody death.
A man by the name of Richard Ramirez was a frequent resident back in the 1980s. During 1985, he went on a series of murders. He was nicknamed as the "night stalker." He killed 13 people. Another murderer by the name of Jack Unterweger also stayed at the hotel during the 80s. He killed 3 prostitutes.
Remember Elisa Lam? She was the woman who was found dead inside one of the water supply tanks on the hotel's roof. This was in February 2013. The surveillance video showed Lam acting strangely -- pressing multiple elevator buttons, and waving her arms wildly. Although Lam was though to have had bipolar disorder, many believed that paranormal activity was to blame.
Despite the terrifying stories, the hotel actually looks kinda nice...
The hotel lobby.

Most of the hotel's guests are foreigners or international travellers who do not know about Hotel Cecil's unsettling history.

Goodness knows I will NEVER stay at that hotel. Would you?

There are simply TOO MANY FABULOUS hotels in and around LA to stay here. LOL I'd never stay here. That poor woman that mysteriously went from ducking in and out of the elevator...to being found dead in the water containment was all over the news. I remember being at LA Fitness, on the eliptical when this shocking discovery was made. I was horrified. You're crazy to not know if you'd stay there or not @ButterflyBlu. I have hundreds of other better hotels I can recommend!
hmm... Would I stay there? I don't know but I really want to go see it now. @marshalledgar, what do you think? O.o
ive stayed here a couple times never hear anything...The entrace to the hotel is very beautiful..
Seeee? @VinMcCarthy gets it!!
@Marshalledgar I will go to you when I need a good hotel to find!!!!

El paradisiaco Cancún
Es el principal destino turístico de México, eclipsando con creces el papel que alguna vez desempeñó Acapulco como la principal nación vacacional de América del Norte. Si las imágenes de playas de arena blanca, aguas cristalinas, motos acuáticas, buceo y descansar junto a la piscina no son lo suficientemente atractivas, agregue a esa imagen clubes nocturnos sensacionales con espectáculos más grandes que la vida y una plétora de antiguas ruinas mayas y tendrá una idea de lo que es la experiencia de Cancún. Cancún, que se adentra en el mar Caribe, se encuentra en la punta de la península de Yucatán, en una tierra que se usaba comúnmente como refugio para los piratas marinos. La ciudad turística se construyó a mediados de la década de 1970 muy cerca y, en algunos casos, encima de las preciadas ruinas mayas. La atracción principal es una serie de hermosos hoteles Art Deco y de gran altura seguidos de una serie de clubes nocturnos que van desde exclusivamente elegantes o industriales de fantasía hasta discotecas más cálidas e íntimas con su propio sabor local maravilloso. El servicio regular de taxis las 24 horas desde y hacia cualquier lugar de la ciudad hace que elegir su alojamiento sea casi tan simple como reservar su vuelo en cualquier lugar. Aunque la sola mención de Cancún evoca pensamientos de fiestas extravagantes y juergas de vacaciones de primavera, asegúrese de tomarlo con calma para que pueda disfrutar de un viaje de un día a las ruinas mayas de los alrededores con una mente clara y una actitud de agradecimiento. Las ruinas más famosas están en Chichén Itzá en el centro de la península. Habitadas desde el 445 a. C. hasta el 1204 d. C., luego misteriosamente abandonadas, estas ruinas se centran alrededor de una pirámide con escalones que culminan en cabezas de serpientes gigantes. Visite durante cualquiera de los equinoccios y las sombras aparecerán como si una serpiente gigante descendiera de la pirámide. Más cerca de Cancún, Tulum también es un popular destino maya con vistas a las aguas turquesas del Caribe. El Templo de los Frescos tiene un interior pintado ornamentalmente y el Templo del Dios Descendente está adornado con tallas en bajorrelieve notablemente intrincadas. Hay al menos otros diez sitios arqueológicos importantes accesibles desde Cancún por parte de los operadores turísticos, y que podrá incluir en sus paquetes vacacionales a Cancún. Si la playa, los deportes acuáticos y el paraíso en general lo ponen un poco inquieto, hay más que suficientes excursiones en Cancún para participar una vez que se encuentre en las playas de arena blanca de Cancún. Diariamente, guías experimentados llevan a los excursionistas entusiastas a la jungla para descubrir dónde viven las cosas salvajes. Además, los paseos a caballo están disponibles a lo largo de la costa y hacia el continente. A un corto viaje en ferry o avión se encuentra Cozumel, la isla caribeña más grande de México y uno de los mejores lugares del mundo para el buceo, sin mencionar que puedes encontrar algunas empresas privadas que ofrecen nadar con delfines. Si lo que buscas es un verdadero escape, Isla de Mujeres es tu respuesta. A quince minutos de Cancún en bote, este pequeño asilo tropical es un retiro pacífico de la vida turística en el continente. El ciclismo es muy popular en la isla, así como el snorquel y charlar con el pirata ocasional que pasa. Echa un vistazo a las misteriosas estatuillas de piedra de mujeres semidesnudas que dejaron los mayas. Cancún es claramente una opción número uno fácil para cualquier vacación en la playa. ¡Las familias, los solteros, las parejas y los adolescentes deben sentirse cómodos y como en casa en esta tierra de ensueño de la peninsula de Yucatán que México ha convertido en un entorno libre de preocupaciones que lo abarca todo, con todo incluido y con los deseos de los vacacionistas al alcance de su mano! No busque más la escapada perfecta, porque la ha encontrado cuando viaja a Cancún.
MRW: Netflix Edition!
Thanks to the wacky winter weather that's been keeping me indoors, I've become more and more reliant on my Netflix account. I've marathoned all the seasons of Masterchef, heavily abused the international film section, and made quite the impressive queue of stand-up comedy specials I know I need to watch. As the resident 'Netflix nut', I've decided to post a My Reaction When card responding to all the major changes happening to Netflix in February - both the shows and movies we need to finish by the end of January and the ones I'm excited are coming in soon! THEY'RE GETTING RID OF DOCTOR WHO?! How could you do that to one of the largest fandoms in the world, Netflix? Y'all are some savages. Right, @arnelli? SAVAGES. HOLY CRAP. DOES ANYONE REMEMBER TEEN WITCH? You guys, 'Teen Witch' is by far the best after-school special movie of all time - and Netflix is adding it! If you haven't seen it, YOU MUST. @ButterflyBlu, BACK ME UP. 'Jesus Camp' was on Netflix this entire time? So, I guess if you want to watch a documentary where a director takes one religious subgroup of crazy and edits it in a way to make it look like everyone who follows that religion is crazy, you only have a little time left! Hooray! They're adding TALLADEGA NIGHTS!!! I feel like this is the only Will Ferrell movie I HAVEN'T seen, but all of my friends love quoting it ("Don't you put that evil on me, Ricky Bobby!"), so finally FINALLY I can also be in the know. Has anyone else seen this? Netflix officially hates Pokémon. So apparently, on February 2nd, five Pokémon movies and two Pokémon TV shows are all being removed from the site. Damn, homies. I don't know about any of you, but if I were Pikachu, I'd be taking that ish PERSONALLY. The first season of Fuller House is here! Is anyone else just waiting for this to be the world's biggest TV disaster? I feel like it would be really, really difficult to bring a show back and have it be nearly as successful as it used to be. (However, that Boy Meets World reboot still exists, so I digress.) So there's my Netflix picks moving in or moving out in the next coming weeks. I hope you enjoyed my reactions, and if you agree or disagree, sound off in the comments below!

4 Dumb Viral Videos You Totally Forgot About Until Now
You're welcome. 1. He Man Says Hey I have this long-standing theory that this video in particular is the center of the internet. Seriously, it shows up when you least expect it. In fact this video was what triggered this post. I thought, "Oh God. It's back." Why It Went Viral: Because like, it's ridiculous, and accurate. The remix of "What's Going On" by 4 Non Blondes is hilarious, and the video is perfectly in-synch. And I mean perfect. It's flawless. Which makes you wonder why someone put so much effort into something so dumb. Favorite Moment: When the music is playing outside of the kitchen and He-man's cook is just stirring a pot, casually. View Count: 62, 917,000 2. Too Many Cooks This is possibly the longest video to ever go viral. In 2015 audiences everywhere were baffled by the mystique of Too Many Cooks. This is honestly one of the strangest things I've ever seen. Seriously, it goes on forever, and you have to watch the whole thing or else you'll miss the point entirely. It appears to be a clever satire on opening title sequences of sitcoms, but evolves into...well...I'll just let you watch it. Why It Went Viral: IT WAS REALLY EFFING WEIRD. Plus, the fact that it goes on forever makes it that much funnier. Watching this with your friends is probably the best thing ever, because it's really reaction oriented. View Count: 9,357,000 3. You Forgot Blueberries This video was shown to me Sophomore year of high school, and as soon as people sat down, they were watching for my reaction. That's how you know you're in for a video that either A. has something to do with someone getting hurt, or B. has a surprise ending. This one has both of those elements. Why It Went Viral: This video has a bunch of catchphrases like "You forgot Blueberries" "It's Yummah" and of course "Blue Berries Blueberrrieessss". The slow motion at the end is clutch, and you can't go wrong with a genuine video surrounding people accidentally hurting themselves. Favorite Moment: The end, duh. And recognizing how annoying little sisters can be haha View Count: 18, 019, 000 4. Scarlet Takes A Tumble Seriously, best. Ever. Why it Went Viral: Because like.....just watch it. Favorite moment: After the crazy ending, when she's rolling around screaming in pain. Sorry if that's harsh, it's just classic. View Count: 24,316,000 Which one is your favorite!? And what viral video still makes you laugh?
3 Korean Authors To Add To Your Reading List
I recently made a video about Haruki Murakami, and a few of oyu asked about some Korean authors you might like. Here are 3 and a half suggestions First is Kyungsook Shin, who I haven't read yet. She wronte "Please Look After Mom" which was a huge success internationally. She has had some scandals surrounding her though, because she plagarized a bit of her work from other authors... Now onto the authors I HAVE read! 1. Han Kang Most recently known for The Vegetarian, she writes in a creepy but realistic style. Everything that happens is believeable which makes it so much scarier. I'm about to read her historical fiction piece, Human Acts! 2. Chang Rae Lee I read On Such A Full Sea sometime last year and really enjoyed it. It takes place in a distopian society and is a really interesting look into how we interact with people around us! 3. Young Ha Kim I adore this author and if you're going to read anything on this list make sure you read Black Flower. It is about the true history of hundreds to thousands of Koreans being brought over to Mexico to essentially be slaves on plantations. Its a part of history I never knew about, and Young Ha Kim explains it in a really fascinating way. Have you read any of these authors?! Here are links to the books if you're interested in picking any of them up^^ Young Ha Kim BLACK FLOWER: http://amzn.to/2mltxHU I Have The Right To Destroy Myself: http://amzn.to/2m1fyGG Han Kang The Vegetarian: http://amzn.to/2lLKvOn Chang Rae Lee On Such A Full Sea: http://amzn.to/2m1jEyQ Kyung Sook Shin Please Look After Mom: http://amzn.to/2m1uXqs
