American Horror Story: Hotel is the fifth installment of the Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning franchise. Breaking from the anthological form, AHS: Hotel is interconnected with both the first installment and AHS: Coven.
Managed by The Countess, the enigmatic Hotel Cortez is located in Los Angeles and host to many disturbing scenarios and paranormal events. The Countess, portrayed by Lady Gaga, is a bloodsucking fashionista. The hotel’s activity catches the eye of an intrepid homicide detective, played by Wes Bentley.
Inspiration for the season came from horror films and actual downtown Los Angeles hotels with a reputation for sinister events. The series returned to filming in Los Angeles and boasted one of the most expansive sets in American Horror Story history.
American Horror Story is written by Ryan Murphy and Brad Falchuk. American Horror Story is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television.
