True Blood Season 2: Vampire Hotel in Dallas

July 7, 2009 by  

In season 2 of Alan Ball‘s fangtastic (couldn’t resist saying that) HBO TV series True Blood, Bill (Stephen Moyer), Sookie (Anna Paquin) and Jessica (Deborah Ann Woll) travel to Dallas to help find a missing vampire.  But where do vampires stay when they are out of town?  As we saw last season they can always head underground when they are not near home, however once they rise they will need to find someplace to wash up (remember Bill was covered all in dirt after spending the day underground though Sookie didn’t mind at all).

In comes the need for vampire hotels as we see in the following photos from the lobby of Sofitel LA located in West Hollywood was the backdrop for the Carmilla Hotel, a vampire hotel set in Dallas for season 2 of True Blood. According to the website it took 18 hours one day and another 24 hours the following week to shoot the necessary scenes. Bottles of TruBlood lined the concierge desk and guests of the hotel had the opportunity to see the stars of the show up close as they shot the scenes. Below is a set of before and after shots of the scenes and a glimpse of the vampire hotel.

  • As True Blood is really a world known series of HBO. I really love to watch the vampire and bloody tale. It’s really amazing and adventures. And this one is really the great news for Carmilla hotel of Dallas. And according to me, this one is really pride thing for the hotel management.

    This episode was So Cool! Its 1 of my favorite episodes from season 2! The vampire hotel,the rooms made just for vampires,Jess ordering up a guy “to snack on”, Sookie finding another telepath, Bill “facing off” against Eric…Once Again!
    Lorena is introduced as Bill’s Maker,Sookie making a disgusted face when she sees that vampires can order their own kind of porn on tv. Just great TV! 🙂
