The Empress

An abandoned garage in Chinatown.

The Empress Hotel in the background looks as though the owners never could manage to get enough cash together to build the other half.

As long as the definition of hotel is a building with beds in it, the Empress qualifies.

I suspect a visit inside would scare the bejeebers out of most people, including me.

I love the tall skinny building in the back (I guess that's the Empress!)...I can just imagine the shotgun style apartments!!! Very unique...it's a shame when buildings such as this one end up in the middle of areas where neglect tends to be the rule...
