This season will be filmed in Los Angeles in a six-story Art Deco hotel set. Ryan Murphy has revealed that this season is much more horror-centric and based on actual horrifying events that have taken place in downtown LA hotels. FX president John Landgraf believes (he didn’t necessarily confirm) that Hotel will continue with the present/past cycle and may take place in the present day. Murphy also confirmed that there would be no musical numbers and that Lady Gaga’s part is strictly acting. [x] [x] [x]
