Cecil Hotel: A real life 'American Horror Story'

The Cecil Hotel in downtown LA Is back in the spotlight with the season premiere of "American Horror Story.'

The new season of American Horror Story was inspired by a tragic local story. A woman was caught on camera acting oddly at the Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. (Look at the bizarre elevator footage.) There were reports a ghost was chasing her. She was later found dead in the water tower on the hotel's roof. AHS Fans have been trying to book the room - many say it's haunted. But the hotel says it's off-limits now.

Now people from all over are heading to the hotel to take a tour.
