Room Service

Hotels here, Motels there. It seems a lot of these places are closing! But this is the Park Plaza hotel. Rumours started flying about this place a couple years ago. We even did a scout of the place, and it was still active. I walked into the lobby of the place with people still milling about.

I had to come up with a reason, I said I needed to use the washroom. They told me guests only, and kicked me out.

I came back, this time when it was closed. The most memorable exploration of the place was a cold snowy Feb 29th, in the middle of a blizzard. It was perfect cover! The one thing that really caught my attention in this place was the amount of stuff left behind! Even whole offices were left setup as if they had just left for the day. Not to mention booze left in the bar.

Kinda creepy actually.

Built in the 1960s.


Front Entrance
Most Park Plaza hotels have either closed, or changed ownership/names.

Front Entrance
That's more weather appropriate!

Map!
Just so that we don't get lost.

Clean
Clean demolition. Workers are obviously removing salvagble materials. Note the clean work, this wasn't done by scrappers.

Escape
Escape! Roof access wasn't too inviting in the middle of a blizzard.

Nothing Good On.
There's nothing good on TV anyways...

Buckets
And this is why we can never find an ice bucket.

Lounge
Staff lounge. There were still uniforms and shoes!

Office
An office.

Alcohol
yes there was still booze in it, no we didn't drink any of it.

Office
Gone for the day. At least that's what it looked like.

Technology
The IT offices. There was also a rack with a nice server, and several switches/routers.

Glass Houses
Glass hallways.

Checking In.
Checking in?

Clean
Another Hall

The Chair...Again
The Chair.

Empty Hall
Once filled with joyous noise, and parties. Their echos still linger.

As We Go Waltzing By
Strike up the band and play a song as we go waltzing by...and fake a smile as we all say goodbye.

Night
We now return you to your regularly scheduled winter.
