Subscribe to The Doors alerts

Tenants of Los Angeles' Morrison Hotel, which is pictured on the cover of The Doors' 1970 album of the same name, have filed a "slumlord" lawsuit against the residence's owners.

The 90-year-old downtown hotel is best known for its depiction on the album cover, which features members of the band looking out of a window bearing the hotel's name.

A civil lawsuit filed by the 40 tenants on Tuesday (21DEC04) in Los Angeles Superior Court claims HOPE PICO CO, which owns the hotel, and SAULI DANPOUR, the hotel's manager, failed to "repair the unsafe, unsanitary and uninhabitable conditions".

The lawsuit seeks general, punitive and statutory damages as well as legal and court costs.

The 111-unit building has been neglected for decades.
