The Landmark Motor Hotel: The Death of Janis Joplin
The room itself is a pretty standard 2 bedroom hotel. However it has more amenities than a typical non-luxury hotel. It has an eat in kitchen with stove and a refrigerator, vanity, and sizable closet space which acts as a makeshift shrine to Janis Joplin, filled with photos and messages to the rock n roll icon.
We had a medium “read” the room for any possible hauntings or presence of any kind.
