Morrison Hotel

The cover photo of the Doors 5th album was taken at the actual Morrison Hotel located in Los Angeles. The band asked the owners if they could photograph the hotel and they declined, so the band went inside when nobody was looking and took the photograph.

Now the place is as can be seen in the last three pics.. quite abandoned.

The old dream of going there, sitting in that same armchair and asking somebody to take the obligatory pic is nowhere to be found.. I think is better this way.. C'mon !, Jim died, the Doors are now part of a time that, as this Hotel, is gone....


1246 South Hope Street. CALIFORNIA




  1. they should have at least maintained it in honor of Jim's memory. gone but not forgotten. the most important is that The Doors music is still alive...

  2. well.. the owners didn't even want them to take the picture.. so imagine..

  3. they didn't want it but i'm sure when The Doors made it popular they kind of like it too? no? haha what do i know. anyway, it's a shame that it's boarded up like that now. i hope when i finally got the time and money to travel that is still there even if it's just a mere memory.

    anyway, thanks for following my blog. i really love (for lack of better word because it is said too much)this blog and 2BANG.
