I figured out the plot of AHS: Hotel.

We know:

It is called “AHS: Hotel.”

The clue in season 4 was the top hat that appeared on many cups and menus.  

Ryan Murphy says it would be like nothing they’ve ever done.

My theory:

I strongly believe it will be about America’s first serial killer HH Holmes. He lived in 1893, and opened a hotel during the Chicago World’s Fair. However, it wasn’t really a hotel. It was really a murder maze of sorts, where he would lead people (mainly young women) in by saying it was a hotel, but he then would torture them. It was almost literally a maze, with locked doors, false stairways, etc. He would then lock them in their rooms and fill it with gas where they asphyxiated. After, he would throw them down a chute Sweeney Todd style, and dissected them, strip them of flesh, and craft skeletons in the basement. Also, his mark was that he always wore a top hat.

I thought I was being honest. I thought I wasn’t lying, but I was. I said to the world, this is what I am, take me or leave me… so that it was always on my terms they had to accept me. It was a trick. Don’t you see, Earl? It was a trick to avoid the responsibility of belonging to someone.
