The Landmark Motor Hotel: The Death of Janis Joplin

 

For a special 3 part episode of the Ghost Town Podcast, we rented the room where Janis Joplin died.

Janis Joplin died on October 4th, 1970 from an accidental overdose at the Landmark Motor Hotel (now the Highland Gardens Hotel) in room 105.

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.
