Morrison Hotel

Pico and Hope

This building adorns the cover of the Doors' classic album Morrison Hotel (1970). After having their photo taken at the hotel, The Doors continued their photo shoot at the "Hard Rock Café " in Skid Row (300 E. 5th Street). Two Americans borrowed the name from the album and opened the first Hard Rock Café in London. For more Doors lore, see the Los Angeles Guide for Doors Fans.
