The Banana Hotel opened in 1929, and was a top notch luxury hotel. The '70s were a period of decline for the hotel. In 1981, the hotel became low income housing, and then in 1983 it was declared unfit for living, and closed for good. We went inside...
It was 105° the day we went, and I was totally miserable. As a result, I wasn't feeling creative, so my pictures are disappointing.
The basement of The Banana was pretty gross. It had been flooded for years, and has been recently drained. The lowest parts are still flooded, as seen here.
Obligatory cliche TV room that everyone posts.
