The Addiction Demon is a mysterious creature who haunts the Hotel Cortez. It is a character in Hotel portrayed by Alexander Ward.


The Addiction Demon is a strange figure that appears randomly at the hotel. According to James March, the Addiction Demon was created by Sally and various other drug addicts that patronized the hotel and used it to shoot up drugs. It was further revealed that the Demon needs to feed on various victims in order to survive.

Personality and Appearance

The demon is sexually violent and aggressive. It doesn't have eyes or a mouth. Its skin is pale white and greasy, as if it is made of wax. It has a strapped on conical drill-bit dildo that it uses to assault its victims. 


The Addiction Demon first appears in Room 64 after Gabriel takes drugs. In the beginning it's shown as a blurry vision but then it suddenly appears in front of him and takes his pants off. It uses a metal cone dildo to rape him. Sally slowly enters the room while Gabriel is screaming. She sits on a chair next to the bed and tells Gabriel to say "I love you, Sally" if he wants the demon to go away. After saying it, the Addiction Demon stops and disappears[1].

After a long day at work, John Lowe comes back to the hotel and tries to sleep on the bed. However, the alarm clock turns on and starts playing jazz music along with the TV that turns on on itself. After turning them off, he goes back to sleep but opens his eyes and sees the demon with his metal cone dildo whirling above his head[2].

Claudia comes in her room talking on the phone with a friend of hers. After hanging up she goes to the bathroom in her night gown to wash her face before going to bed. There she hears strange noises and sees the demon in the mirror. While Sally tries to seduce John in the elevator in order not to arrest her she massages his penis and the demon is being showed blurry around them while the lights go off and on[3].

While John is having sex with Sally in the bathroom of his room, the demon appears for a moment and disappears when John looks at the mirror[4].

The Demon appears randomly around James March while he is arguing with Sally for not trying to save John Lowe when trying to hang himself[5].

The Demon appears around Sally after she tries to kill John with a knife after being rebuffed by him.

The Demon was also used (or unleashed) by March to punish Sally for disobeying him.


  • James March (to Sally): "This demon that you and your kind have conjured with your diseased acts must feed. If not on others, then on you, dear Sally."


  • The Addiction Demon (or something bearing resemblance to it) appears in the Hotel teaser "Do Not Disturb".
