Made famous by Jack White and Meg White of the White Stripes, this is the Hotel Yorba located in Detroit, Michigan. Hotel Yorba is the lead single from White Blood Cells, by Detroit, Michigan garage rock band The White Stripes, and their first single to be released commercially. It was released in November 2001.Built in 1926, the Hotel Yorba is a former hotel in southwest Detroit that can be seen along I-75 near the Ambassador Bridge to Canada. The single version of the song was recorded in room 206 of the building which is now used as government subsidized housing. The White Stripes shot much of the song's music video outside the hotel, but were denied permission to film inside; according to Jack White, the duo is "sort of banned for life" from the hotel. The song was used for a deleted scene in the 2002 movie 28 Days Later. The scene does not appear on the DVD, while the song itself is featured on the soundtrack CD released by XL Records.
