How could it possibly be worse than that hotel with a body in the water tank?  I don't care how run-down a place gets, dead girl in the water tops any infrastructural deficiencies.

SevenizGud: Well, as soon as the auto unions become more interested in the promotion of the company than their greedy selves


Odds of that remain low until auto management leads by example.

ransack.: I lived in Detroit this was my house

I miss my neighbours, that was a really cool place to live, everyone was like family


When I worked for Dish Network, I actually installed a satellite dish at a home directly across from that one.

It was a crack house, complete with snarling pitbulls, people coming in and out at random times, and the basement being used as a garbage dump.

HotWingAgenda: I am fascinated by all the horror stories coming out of Detroit for the past decade or so. At some point, surely it'll have to turn around. I would think eventually it will get so bad, and therefore cheap, that someone with huge pockets will just start buying massive swaths and rebuilding it on a grand scale.


Well, as soon as the auto unions become more interested in the promotion of the company than their greedy selves, and as soon as Michigan becomes sub-tropical, and as soon as the politicians there abandon their "get whitey" strategy of urban renewal....

Yeah, it could turn around.

LesserEvil: IIRC, that was the hotel they put us up in when I joined the Marines in 1986... they served us breakfast at a diner that ringed the first floor, and there was a very loud punk night club that got louder from 2am to 3am as people poured out into the streets.

My room had no electricity, which was probably just as well, because that way I wouldn't see the roaches scurrying around in the dark.

Was up until 3am anyway, then had to get up at 4:30am. Didn't get to sleep until 9pm Pacific the NEXT day at MCRD San Diego, since we spent all night processing after I flew in.


Yeah, that's the same club.  I've had many a drunken coffee at that diner after leaving that club.

geekbikerskum: A goth club with a hotel upstairs?  Would have been all over that when I was 20 something years old.  Yeah, I was young and stupid.  Also, bedbugs weren't a thing back then either.


Yep, Leland City Club was my goto club in my early 20s.  I loved that place.  And it's not a hell-hole, it's just a run-down dump, nowhere near the "America's worst hotel".

Detroit isn't that bad, thanks to Dan Gilbert. Downtown residential properties are pretty much at capacity, and they ain't cheap.

I like to stay at those older hotels.  I feel like I have gone through a time warp.  Walking along the halls of the Congress Hotel in Chicago knowing those Capone soldiers who committed the St Valentine's Day massacre stayed there and Capone himself even wandered those halls. Modern hotels, while comfortable enough and all, do nothing for my imagination.  They are all pretty much designed the same way.

That's nothing, compared to a similar hotel in here in Los Angeles that recently found a dead guest in the hotels rooftop water tank. She had been reported missing for several days.
Asian flavored coffee in the morning?

I work nights in a hotel. I love my job. But holy fark, people are disgusting and awful between the hours of midnight and 5:00 AM. And I work in an upscale, classy hotel for celebrities and rich people.

Paris1127: jtown: How could it possibly be worse than that hotel with a body in the water tank?  I don't care how run-down a place gets, dead girl in the water tops any infrastructural deficiencies.

Dead girl in the water AND the Cecil Hotel played host to two serial killers (at different times): the late Night Stalker Richard Ramirez lived there in 1985, as did Austrian strangler turned journalist turned strangler Jack Unterweger in 1991.


Pretty much every hotel in America has at some point lodged one of the thousands of active serial killers who will never be identified.
