Room 32

This is not a photo of Jim Morrison's apartment in Paris where he died. This is Room 32 at the Alta Cienega Hotel in West Hollywood (1005 N. La Cienega Blvd.). This now run down room was once Jim Morrison's sanctuary where he escapes to whenever his girlfriend, Pamela Courson, kicks him out of their nearby apartment. He'd stumbles back to this room after drunken nights out at Barney's Beanery and unleashes his inner "Lizard King" with his groupies. He stays in this room while recording "L.A. Woman" across the street. The sound booth is now a stall in a restroom with a plaque commemorating Morrison's hit - I should know, I peed in this stall when it was an Italian restaurant. After his death in 1971, his fans made Room 32 their personal shrine to the man - the room now rents by the minute.
