The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

Crime Scene The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel

Joe Berlinger (Conversations with a Killer: The Ted Bundy Tapes) brings us this latest true crime series.

The show deconstructs the mythology and mystery surrounding infamous locations in contemporary crime.

And the Cecil Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles is their first focus.

Netflix

It has been linked to some of the city’s most notorious activity from untimely deaths to housing serial killers.

In 2013 college student Elisa Lam was staying at the Cecil when she vanished.

Lam’s disappearance offers a chilling and captivating lens into one of LA’s most nefarious settings.

At the start of the trailer, the hotel's manager rhetorically asks, "Is there a room here that maybe somebody hasn't died in?"

"I never got used to that... never got used to that," she admits.

Another voice is heard saying, "Throughout its history the Hotel Cecil has always had a dark persona."

Netflix

Another voice added, "People call it, 'Hotel Death.'"

"This was a place where serial killers let their hair down. Like Richard Ramirez, who would come back covered in blood."

"And no one's got a problem with that."

Later in the trailer, they discuss the disappearance of Elisa Lam.

It's revealed that the last footage they have of her was from inside the elevator at the Cecil.
