Description
The Hotel Rosslyn has a history unique in all of the city of Los Angeles.

Once the tallest building in LA, the Rosslyn boasted in it's large rooftop sign as being the "Fireproof Million Dollar Hotel."

It's best years are behind it now, seeing some minor glory in 1987 as the rooftop site of U2's music video for "Where the Streets Have no Name."

Today the Rosslyn is a flop house, with rooms going for $8 a night. The seedy side of downtown Los Angeles lives here now (2003).
