What’s Up With Room 322 at Hotel ZaZa?



What's Up With Room 322 at Hotel ZaZa?

Hotel ZaZa is a stylish inn located in Houston, Texas. While the hotel is known for its luxurious suites, a recent post on Reddit revealed the existence of the mysterious “Room 322”. This room is not advertised on the hotel’s website and, in short, is the definition of creepy. This is what the Redditor posted:

stay here frequently when on business. Hotel was booked solid and my colleague managed to score a room unplanned. We all had normal zaza style rooms (swank) and he ended up in this goth dungeon closet.

Seriously- the room had a chain holding the bed to wall, pictures of skulls and a creepy, incongruous portrait of an old man. Room was about 1/3 the normal size with the furniture blocking part of the TV, bed and window.

We asked about it at the front desk and the clerk looked it up and said ” that room isn’t supposed to be rented.’ and immediately moved him.

Here are pics of the room, each of which kind of raises concerns about what actually happens there.

Unlike any other room in the hotel, the floor is cold, hard, dirty concrete,

The room is about a third of the size of other rooms in the hotel and is the only one with brick walls. The mirror is embedded in the brick wall, leading some to believe that it is actually a two-way mirror…

The bed is chained to the wall. Why?

Skull frame on the wall. Rather appropriate since 322 is the Skull and Bones’ sacred number.

Skull clock

Those that are aware of the occult elite’s symbolism know that 322 is the “sacred” number of the Skull & Bones secret society (to which belong the likes of George W. Bush, George Bush Sr. and John Kerry).

A very creepy painting above the bed depicting two girls with dead eyes and deformed, elongated necks. Does this image represent split personalities?

Another creepy image above the bed of a guy with huge eyes. He doesn’t look nice at all.

Overseeing the room is the picture of a suited man. Apparently, it is Jay Comeaux, President of Stanford Group Company. Why is this random elite guy on the wall? Does he have something to do with the Skull and Bones?

This looks like the perfect place to traumatize someone.

When the story came out, people from the hotel’s PR responded that room 322 was a theme room entitled “Hard Times” and was meant to recreate a “prison experience”. This room is however not advertised anywhere and, as some people noted, there is nothing in that room that really recalls a “prison experience”. Do jail cells have huge mirrors, brick walls, and frames of skulls, weird deformed faces and company CEOs on walls? Not really.

Another strange fact, a year before this story came out, a book author posted on her blog a little something about room 322 as well. This is what she wrote about it:

“When I checked into Houston’s Hotel ZaZa at midnight on Thursday night, there was some confusion. My first room was a themed room, known as the Hard Times room; this skull was on the wall. A few minutes after I got there, the front desk called up and said they had to move me; the people at the front desk were deeply upset at the thought of me being stuck in this room.”

Apparently, hotel staff does not want everyday visitors to stay in that room. Is this room called “Hard Times” because it is used for occult elite trauma-inducing rituals? I cannot say for sure, but this is definitely a sinister site.

I know I'm late to comment on this article but this is the first time I've seen it. Don't know if anyone will see this… However, I had to make a comment because I thought it was interesting when I looked up the hotel out of curiosity I noticed the name of the hotel restaurant… It's name is Monarch. Spooky! 🙂


Well, now I see that someone noticed the same thing just a few comments up… sorry 😛 But, yeah, try as I might I could not get the room to pop up for reservation. The other ones that are mentioned in interviews and whatnot in reference to this one being themed are listed… not this one though.


no carpet = no blood stains


the way to test for a two-way mirror is this: touch the mirror with your finger. if there is a gap between the tip of your finger and the image of your finger in the mirror- that's a regular mirror. if your finger touches the image of your finger- that's a two-way. get out!


The fingernail thing is A MYTH, it doesnt work. Lots of mirrors dont show that little space. That little space between your fingers has to do with the type of glass that is used. Anyone who has played with cheap toys can realize this. I learned about this myth as a kid and tried it on every single mirror i found, including the random mirrors attached on shitty toys. Some show the gap, others dont. A quick google search will show you this too.

A better way to look for fake mirrors would be to inspect the wear and tear at the corners of the mirror, a lot of mirrors are made with glass and a reflective film on the back of the glass, which starts to wear away on the corners. Depending on the type of fake mirror, you could also cup your hands on it and look through (to block out any light).


I was at hotel zaza for a luncheon last week, and, being a Houston native, I had never even heard of this hotel before. This hotel was so eerie to me, I had to go home and research it; that's how I stumbled upon this thread. There was most definitely an uncomfortable/evil feel to it, no matter how expensive the hotel may look. If something feels wrong, then there's something wrong–never ignore intuition.


The elite skulls and bones like 322 because of that.

Genesis 3:22King James Version (KJV)

22 And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever:

People have to have understanding of the Bible, if people don’t understand it, they will likely not believe in God. But once you have understanding, it’s simple and everything starts to make sense.

They know good and evil like gods(so they think) and now they want to live forever. Tranhumanism, mix iron with clay, human with machine and upload their brains into the machine and live forever just like God promises eternal life but they want to bypass God and say see, we can live forever without God also with knowledge.

You may not believe in God but they do, they just don’t want a ruler, they want to be rulers and rule over everything. They want to be gods and rule.


Am I the only one who noticed that the pillow in the bed reads: "hey beautiful, we own you" …?


If I had been assigned that room I'd just bite the cost and smash that mirror, just to see if there is a room behind it. I'd have to know.

WOW HOLY CRAP. I just realized something. This comment was on youtube video about the ouija board… read on!!

"oh my goodness… Always leave if they mention zozo.. Zozo is the name of a demon or demons that often manifests thru a ouija board and he is not kool at all. Sometimes he goes by Sozo, Soso, Bozo, Zaza and similar. When asked how old he is he often says thru the ouija board "No age". Zozo is a trickster, tormentor and evil. He also seems to have a thing with mirrors. I don't know what to say about mama though. Try googling it."

wow wow wow that is creepy the hotel is named after an actual demon. ahk


Just ignore d*mons and start reading about the lives and actions of Saints. Awesome stuff. The first ones from angels ended up wicked and dreadful, messing with humans 24/7. Saints on the other hand who lived briefly and were made by flesh and blood achieved great things and showed immense strength, physical and spiritual.


link to yt vid?

danielle adams

Zozo is not a demon, its like a meme amongst spirits. They like to spook people by moving the planchette around and a lot of people jump to the conclusion of demons because theyre conditioned by childhood stories, christian upbringings and hollywood movies. ouija boards are like omegle of the spirits, you only contact spirits not demons n s--t.


The artist of the twisted mirrored-woman portrait, Ruth Borum-Loveland (, had Illimunati (and just plain creepy) symbolism in all of her paintings. This particular painting is called "Landlocked in a Lovely Place"…

All of her paintings are sold. Her work is filled with the All Seeing Eye, triangles, Women with two eyes in each eye, pyramids, Baphomet heads, skulls, women with long necks and snake tongues, sad-twisted-empty-eyed women, Medusa heads, blood doplets, cupcakes that resemble triangles with an all seeing 'cherry' on top….


Good info, nice side work on your part.


Just like Mark Ryden!


Did some reading on it, "The room appears to be much smaller than the rest of the rooms in the hotel, which touts extra-spacious living areas as an accoutrement to visitors. The room appears to be a normal sized room divided into two or more smaller rooms by the out of place brick wall and some masonry work, which was deemed rather shoddy by some of the readers who claimed to be in pertinent fields of construction.
The brick wall appears to be built to house, or frame, the large mirror above the bed. The room, again, appears to be half of a regular room, divided. This leads to the question: is this a two way mirror?"

This only adds to the horrible images my mind is concocting about what kind of sick things they're doing in this room – possibly for an audience.


Pillow says “Hey Beautiful, we own you.”

Constipated Cabbage

If you zoom in on the picture it actually says “Hey Beautiful. We Love You”.


Someone, please, pour down some LUMINOL all over that floor and take some pictures!!! =]
Surely, the result will gonna be scary!




Has anyone noticed the address?
5701 Main St, Houston, Add up the numbers,
(13 Main St, Houston)


They have a restaurant called "Monarch" at this hotel !


3.22 was also the date the Georgia Guidestones were erected.


Hmm, so I have been in a lot of prisons for work (unfortunately…but it's part of my job). I did not get this room at all when I first read the post but when you said it's meant to look like a prison there are a couple things I see here that are similar to a prison- most prison cells are cold with concrete floors. None of them have beds that are that luxurious, that's for sure, but they are sometimes chained to the wall (plus people are taken out of their cells in chains and shackles in some of the more high security prisons). The picture of the guy from the Stanford Group stood out to me the most – it's very odd that it is there, BUT in most prisons, there is a picutre of the warden or the head of the correctional department hanging on the wall – just like that! Also, the painting on the wall of the guy with the big eyes looks like a stereotypical inmate to me. Not sure what that all means…it's still super freaky and creepy and clearly that hotel is using evil imagry and death related themes throughout the whole… Read more »


Jay Comeaux is very much a member of elitist groups involving skulls, in case Vigilant Citizen is still wondering.

Curious Indeed 2013

I would have torn that room apart looking for "clues" "objects" and hidden cameras.
According to reuters report on Sept. 1st 2012–
"Jay Comeaux, who managed the brokerage's Houston branch office, settled the case without admitting or denying the Securities and Exchange Commission's findings…Comeaux faces a bar from the industry, and may face penalties that have not yet been determined, the SEC said.
Allen Stanford was sentenced in June to 110 years in prison for bilking investors with fraudulent certificates of deposit issued by Stanford International Bank, his bank in Antigua.
Comeaux was responsible for supervising the brokerage's financial consultants, and received commissions of at least $1.3 million on the sales of fraudulent CDs, the SEC said.
According to the SEC, Comeaux knew that the bank wouldn't disclose details of its investment holdings, but still used marketing material that told investors that the bank maintained a "well-diversified portfolio of highly marketable securities."

Now why oh why would his picture be on the wall in this room?


what better place to do a re-programming 'touch-up" than in a room that "doesn't exist"? Thanks for this VC- the evidence out there, the better.


Little contracting knowledge—yes, the materials used in this room are meant to *completely* block the outside world from what is going on inside its walls. Bricks absorb sound, from both sides of its construction, so it doesn’t travel beyond the radius of its “stage” (bedroom) where LOUD cries/screams may be a problem. It could also block out ritual chants, taunts, I’m sure. Also, by not putting the bed in the corner, but centering it, the sounds coming from it will stay in the general room area, and not project out to other rooms JIC someone may be lurking in the parlor area near the door. Put something in a corner and suddenly the sound projects outward loudly, and everywhere. (like if you put a TV/stereo in the corner of your living room, everyone can hear it better) There’s also a lot of metal double-weighted doors in this space, and that’s designed to block sound too, like at prisons, asylums, and commercial buildings. So yes…concrete floors mean blood/etc can be cleaned with bleach, and it’s like nothing happened there…but concrete (again) absorbs sound travel better than carpet. Carpet only mutes sound, and people on other floors can STILL hear what’s going… Read more »
