Room 322
« on: February 23, 2013, 03:23:19 pm »
So, don't die of shock or anything, but something moderately creepy and interesting and unusual has been posted on our favourite conspiracy nut website, GLP.

Link

Essentially, what happened is someone got given access to room 322 at the ZaZa Hotel in Houston.  Inside of finding a normal room, they found it was strangely decorated, with odd pictures and paintings of skulls on the wall, and that it was smaller than the average ZaZa room ("by about 1/3" according to the poster).

When they asked about it at reception, they were told by the hotel clerk that said room "shouldn't have been rented out" and were promptly moved to another room in the hotel.

However, before leaving, pictures were taken, and you can see them in the gallery below

Items of note

- the floor is bare concrete.  The ZaZa in Houston is a high end hotel, and I've looked at pictures.  Normally, the rooms have tiled or carpet floors.

- the room size, and the mirror, suggest the disturbing possibility that there is another hidden room within 322, and the mirror is two-way.

- the picture in the room is believed to be Jay Comeaux, formerly of the Stanford Financial Group.  That is the same Stanford Financial Group owned by Allen Stanford, banker to the drug lords and (suspected) snitch to the CIA.

It's odd, but not the first mention of this room on  the Internet: http://popculturenerd.com/2012/02/27/on-the-road-with-hilary-davidson

“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

When I checked into Houston’s Hotel ZaZa at midnight on Thursday night, there was some confusion. My first room was a themed room, known as the “Hard Times” room; this skull was on the wall. A few minutes after I got there, the front desk called up and said they had to move me; the people at the front desk were deeply upset at the thought of me being stuck in this room.

Hmm, interesting.

Yeah, I thought it was curious that she was moved out of it so quickly, despite protesting that she didn't mind it.

The room IS now showing up on their website. I wonder what happens if you try to book it?

something about it just screams occult to me for some reason.

I think it's a clubhouse room. Probably a combination of the occult (in the sense that all secret societies have their hidden rituals and meetingplaces) and the banal.

Yeah, that's the take GLP has on it, once you remove the speculation about elite snuff porn movie productions from the equation.

It could also be an extremely tacky room held for some drug lord friend of Allen Stanford.  Drug lords tend to have extraordinarily bad taste in the arts, and it could be that Jay Comeaux is, like, his bestest buddy in the USA or something (I'd sure be close friends with the people laundering my money).

Fuck,  it's almost embarrassing to have the same opinions as GLP. But obvious conclusion is obvious.

Plus, tacky room for rich dealer.

Dunno.  The world gets weird on you sometimes.  It probably IS just some rich bozo with a fetish, but you never can tell.  It could be something a hell of a lot grimmer.  I wonder what you'd find if you ran one of those UV light thingies in the room (flouroscopes?), in the bathroom and in the cracks along the base of the wall.

Concrete floor?  Bleach works pretty good on concrete.  Tidies things right up.

Houston has a long tradition of little pockets of hidden weird eccentric shit. Most of it's benign: some of the buildings downtown are covered in gargoyles you can't see from street level, even their phone books used to have all kinds of crazy on the cover art, if you looked closely. http://file770.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/10/lgh631.jpg

Houston also has a long tradition of hidden pockets of sociopathic killers. The fluoroscope would be worth doing.  :x

Wrong name.

But it doesn't matter, because we just need to GET THE STAINS OUT.

 :horrormirth: :horrormirth: :horrormirth:

It could all be a troll/sales gimmick to generate buzz about the place. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

It's not working, though. That room screams "GET OUT. NOW." This probably isn't the message you want to send if you want people to actually stay at your hotel.

This is seriously weird. 

What's best case scenario for why a hotel would even have a room like this?
