Circa 1969, several strangers, most with a secret to bury, meet by chance at Lake Tahoe's El Royale, a rundown hotel with a dark past. Over the course of one night, everyone will show their true colors - before everything goes to hell.
This is the second collaboration between Drew Goddard and Chris Hemsworth since The Cabin in the Woods (2011).
The desk clerk states that no alcohol can be served on the Nevada side of the hotel.
Nevada has had 24/7 alcohol sales everywhere but Native American reservations since the late 1950s. That would include any place that allowed gambling or served prepared foods such as a sit-down restaurant.
There are almost no opening credits. Only the film's title is shown after the first scene.
