"Cool Hotel Chaos" (Australia)                                                                                                                                                 Long story                  

This is the story of the end of the legendary Gatwick Private Hotel in Melbourne. Its owners, twin sisters Rose Banks and Yvette Kelly, have sheltered for 20 years those who had nowhere to go: penniless people, drug addicts, prostitutes, ex-convicts. The Gatwick has been a gateway for many, and a house for decades for others. In the fast-gentrifying neighborhood of Saint-Kilda, the building became spoilsport. Its notorious reputation precipitated its fall. The sisters felt forced to sell the property. Channel 9 bought the building for its reality show The Block. The 1930s hotel, currently under renovation, will be split into luxurious apartments.
