    HISTORY
    [​IMG]


    The Hotel Valentino started out life as an empty storefront when Pandora Town was first created. Nobody knew what it was before it appeared in Pandora, but it spent some time as a boutique with offices above until it was sold to James McCarthy when it went out of business during Queen Ravenna's reign. It was abandoned for a couple of years before Elizabeth Johnson took over McCarthy's business and renovated the building into it's current 1930's splendor. It opened its doors on May 15th, Year Five. It remained in Elizabeth Johnson's care until January 2nd, Year 6, when she vanished and the hotel was left to @Magnus Bane.

    Hotel Valentino is an art deco hotel and cocktail bar in the Silverpool District of Pandora Town. Like stepping back into the ultra-streamlined 1930's, the Hotel Valentino offers 115 rooms from standard to luxury, a swimming pool and a cocktail bar. Off the record it also features a mysterious 4th floor which seems to come and go of its own accord, lifts that occasionally seem to lose guests between one floor and another, things scratching inside the walls, rumours of ghostly children playing in the halls and the perilous room 113 that never seems to be available.

    Though not expressly advertised the Hotel is a safe haven for creatures of a supernatural disposition and may cater individually to many species if quietly requested, including blackout curtains or rooms with no windows for Vampires, solid steel re-enforced rooms that lock from the outside for werewolves and more...

    THE LOBBY
    [​IMG]


    The Lobby has a long desk for check in, a double staircase that leads up to the Cocktail Bar 'The Clover Club' and a few scattered seats to sit in. The floor is marble and the decor is rich and heavily influenced by the 1930's. There are three golden doored elevators that lead up to the rooms on the right.

    There are always two people handling the check-in desk, always one human and one non-human so that guests may choose accordingly if they feel safer with one or the other. Private check-ins can be requested for guests requiring a little more privacy.

    THE CLOVER CLUB
    [​IMG]


    The Clover Club is a Cocktail Bar and Restaurant that can be found just to the left of the Lobby. Featuring some Pandora special Cocktails as well as old favourites. The bar features a classy take on the Art Deco period and serves excellent food for hotel guests and visitors. If you're staying on the Fourth Floor, be sure to ask for the special drinks menu and you might find something more to unusual taste...

    THE FOURTH FLOOR
    [​IMG]


    Though the fourth floor boasts an additional fifty rooms, none are ever officially booked simply because the floor doesn't always 'exist'. However for those guests seeking a specific kind of privacy, the fourth floor may become available and features a unique set of rooms to choose from that would suit the more unusual guest that may require a prolonged or specialised stay. Oddly you cannot find the fourth floor if you are specifically looking for it but once you are on the fourth floor you may return to the ground floor via the lifts at any time. Humans rarely ever find it and those that do are lucky if they return to tell the tale.

    Those who have rooms on the fourth floor are given special key cards to call the lifts which will guarantee them access to the fourth floor despite the fourth floor not having a button inside the lift itself.

    THE PENTHOUSE
    [​IMG]


    The Penthouse Suite is the permanent residence of the Hotel's current owner Magnus Bane and boasts an excellent view of Silverpool and a high class Art Deco themed living room with large sofas, comfy rugs and exquisite art on the walls. There is also a large corner bar set to one side.

    The penthouse features two large bedrooms with super-king size beds, both have large en-suite bathrooms with spa-tubs and showers. There is also a kitchen, though it is seldom used as the Countess prefers to order from the restaurant and have it brought up for her. There is also a large walk-in wardrobe. She also has access to a balcony that overlooks the front of the hotel as well as access to small but quaint roof garden.

    Even when Magnus is out of town, the Penthouse does not become available to be booked. It is essentially his home.

    THE LIFTS
    [​IMG]


    There are three lifts that go to all floors available in the main lobby. However only one of these lifts ever seems capable finding the fourth floor. These lifts occasionally drop one or two floors suddenly, or will sound like the cables are snapping, but they always seem to slow before hitting the ground floor and open perfectly normally despite this. Very rarely guests will enter the elevators and not return.

    THE OTHER 'GUESTS'
    [​IMG]


    THE VOICES
    These are fairly benevolent and appear in peoples rooms in the dead of the night, whispering and talking just loud enough to be heard but not so loud their conversation can be made out. They don't stay to any specific room and drift around the hotel as they please but wherever they go the lights go out and it's only when the lights are turned back on again that the voices stop talking. Some say they have heard the voices urging them to kill whoever is in the room with them and others say they can't make out what they are saying.​

    THE TWINS
    The Twins are two identical young girls with dark hair, cut straight to a 70's style. They have blue dresses on with red belts and white tights, they like to stand at the end of long corridors and watch guests as they try to find their rooms. Sometimes the twins smile creepily at nothing and other time they are screaming silently and covered in blood.​

    THE TOWHEADS
    From August 29th onwards guests report seeing young children with white-blonde hair running through the corridors though they seem to disappear when pursued and one moment they are there the next they are gone. They never seem to make a sound but appear in hallways, in rooms and across the balcony in the lobby at night.​

    THE GIRL IN THE LIFT
    There is a little girl in a pink dress with golden blonde ringlets in her hair. She stands in front of the lifts, sometimes laughing, sometimes singing to herself before she steps into the lifts and disappears. She has never been seen leaving the lifts but often when she has been seen entering one, this is when the lifts malfunction and threaten to plummet four stories into the ground...​

    IT LIVES IN THE PIPES
    Old buildings always have a little rattle in the pipes. However this rattle also comes with a pretty little melody sung by a woman. It comes up through the plug holes and sometimes can be heard down in the pool. People have reported seeing a young woman swimming in the pool but she disappears when they talk to her. Some have even fled from the pool saying something grabbed their leg and tried to pull them down. Others have reported seeing a similar woman in their shower or reclining in their bath tub singing the same melody. Her eyes are milky white and her skin is always damp and pale and the stink of rotting bloated flesh follows wherever she goes.​

    THE BOY WITH NO FACE
    This is a rather playful creature. It looks like a little boy in old-fashioned sailor-suit with a little tilted sailor-hat on but he has no face beneath his dark brown hair. There is simply a featureless expanse of skin. Sometime he pushed balls or push-powered wooden toys towards guests and it's advisable to push them back to him because when he gets angry the boy with no face suddenly turns into a creature with claws that can phase into the walls and will drag people to their deaths between the wall cavities.​

    THE HATCHET MAN
    Don't let this one catch you out alone in the night. He appears as a tall skinny man with long lank greying hair down his shoulders and obscuring most of his face. He sways as he walks and he drags a huge old rusty metal hatchet behind him as he walks. It scrapes along the ground even where there is carpet. Sometimes he seems to be wearing a mostly burned firemans uniform but nobody is sure who or what he is as he appears far more solid than any regular 'ghost'. If you hear screams in the night you can be sure the Hatchet Man has found his next victim.​

    THIRD FLOOR HALLWAY
    [​IMG]


    The hallway on the third floor leading directly out from the lifts has an unusual stain that seems to be leaking from the ceiling. Despite full restoration and weekly repaints, the stain continues to appear though no source can be found for it. It is directly beneath the hallway for the mysterious 'fourth floor' and on two occasions so far passers by have reported witnessing a flood of blood cascade down the walls and for the walls to close around them.

    To all public knowledge Room 113 is never available for booking. What goes on behind closed doors...nobody knows.

    Or do they?

    TRIVIA
    [​IMG]


    • The building seems to be oddly larger on the inside than it looks to be on the outside.
    • The fourth floor can never be seen from the outside and only accessed by one of the elevators when it appears.
    • Room 113 is NEVER available to be booked.
