Entropy at the French Cottage, Hollywood

The French Cottage hotel stood a few feet away from Sunset and Highland, near a stretch of old hotels and motels which are vanishing as steadily and unnoticed as Midwest meadowlarks.

More after the jump

After the French Cottage closed as a hotel a few months ago there was a sign saying it could be rented for filming.

A few weeks after that, it was gutted, and left standing as an empty hull. One day it was clean, the next covered in huge yellow tags. A week after that all the doors and roofs were removed, revealing blue patterned wallpaper inside the rooms.

Once, there was breakfast, according to the sign.
