Usually when people stay in hotels, they try not think of what’s happened in the room before them. You just trust that the housekeepers know what they’re doing (and maybe wipe down your TV remote with an antibacterial sheet).
But that’s not the case with the hotels below, which all served as brothels at some point in their history. Aside from what you can probably guess happened in your hotel room if it used to be a house of ill repute, it’s also fun to think about who may have stayed there (Jesse James? Doc Holliday?) and the conversations that transpired. It’s pretty amazing to think you may, 150 years later, be sitting in the same spot where an outlaw planned a train robbery or madam sat as she planned to con a cowboy out of his poker winnings.
