Summary Note This season focuses on the Downtown Los Angeles Hotel Cortez which has been recently purchased by a New York fashion designer, Will Drake. The 90 year old hotel is haunted by demons and mysterious ghosts including the founder, James Patrick March ; heroin junkie Sally and the strap-on-wielding Addiction Demon. Staff and residents of the hotel include the 111-year-old vampire, Elizabeth/The Countess and her fleeting paramour, the former drug-addict Donovan as well as Donovan's mother, the manager and front desk clerk Iris, the eccentric transgender bartender Liz Taylor and the Countess' vengeance-obsessed lover, Ramona Royale. As the season unfolds, the information and backstory of each character is revealed. Elizabeth was married to James March and had an illegal abortion at the Murder House back in 1926. Ramona was a Hollywood actress who had a romantic past with Elizabeth, before the latter killed Ramona's new boyfriend in a jealous rage. Liz was formerly known as Nick Pryor and lived in Topeka, Kansas up until 1984 when she was given a makeover and christened as Liz Taylor by Elizabeth. Sally, after supplying Donovan heroin, was shoved out a window by an angered Iris. Finally, James tortured and murdered many visitors to his hotel, which he built with a series of secret chutes and hallways used primarily for covertly disposing the bodies of his victims.
