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 it 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.

The floor is hard, dirty concrete, unlike any other room in the hotel.

The room is about a third of the size of other rooms in the hotel. The mirror is embedded in the brick wall, leading some Redditors to think 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.

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).

Overseeing the room is the picture of a man. According to some, it is Jay Comeaux, President at Stanford Group Company. Why is this random elite guy on the wall? WHY??

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 do 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? Cannot say for sure, but this is definitely a sinister site.

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… Read more ยป

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! ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, now I see that someone noticed the same thing just a few comments up… sorry ๐Ÿ˜› 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.
