In late 2009 the city condemned a section of the property and demolition began. What was left was boarded up and fenced off. Since then local writers have been hitting it up. There were plans to build a large hotel and strip mall but apparently the MTQ has other plans and the new property owners will be having talks to figure all that out in the near future. I stopped by recently to check it out and get me some flics. Although fenced off it was not hard to get in. All the boarded windows have been hit up with various graffiti and a number of doors have been kicked in displaying the remains of the rooms interiors. All the beds and furniture remain in the rooms with various beer bottles and other refuse strung about. I didn't venture into any of the rooms but instead peeked in and snapped some shots.
