The hotel, located in Downtown LA, has been the backdrop to many crimes and is renown for mysterious deaths and a number of suicides between the 1930s-1960s.

The series looks into three of these, with the first episode, titled Room 1402, focusing on serial killer Richard Ramirez, the subject of Netflix documentary Night Stalker.

The ep will delve into Ramirez' heinous crimes, and investigate how the serial killer was resident at the hotel for several weeks during the 1980s and is even thought to have committed some of his crime spree during his stay.

As viewers will know, Elisa went missing from the hotel in 2013. One month after she vanished, Elisa's body was recovered from a water tank on the roof of the hotel.

There have been many theories over what happened to the student - with many claiming she had been playing 'The Elevator Game' while others said her death was linked to a TB outbreak within the city.

However, her death was ruled as accidental drowning, with her bipolar disorder also being a significant factor.

Finally, the third ep of the series, Intertwined, delves into one of the lesser known deaths at the Cecil Hotel, which involved an older man and a younger woman who were found lying in blood on the sidewalk next to the hotel, in 1962.

Investigators were baffled, after it appeared the pair had fallen from a ninth floor window. But were they pushed? Or did they jump?

The mini series is currently available on Amazon Prime Video, and if you enjoyed the Netflix doc, it's certainly one to watch.
