A better question is, “what didn’t happen at the Cecil Hotel?” It seems like just about everything you could imagine has happened at the Cecil Hotel. As a result, the city doesn’t issue tickets to vans parked there. As Travel Bean’s tour guide said, “Every vehicle that you see that you suspect someone might live in — they do.”
A large portion of Cecil Hotel went through a branding change to become “Stay on Main” in 2011. From 2014 to 2016, the hotel underwent some ownership changes and renovations. In 2017, the hotel closed to go through serious renovation. However, the pandemic shut down the renovations, and it wasn’t until December 2021 that the hotel reopened, but with a different mission.
