Celebrating 7 Years Of TJElevatorfan YouTube Channel
That's right, today marks the 7th year of my TJElevatorfan YouTube Channel. We celebrate with a full hotel tour of the Hampton Inn & Suites in downtown Roanoke, VA on top of the Market Parking Garage with Andrew (AKA Dieselducy.) Special thanks to Tara Talerico who is the assistant GM for a great visit and tour. Also a big thanks to all my viewers & subscribes for a great 7 years. It's been an exciting journey of dreams coming true & discovering many friendships. You know, I gave Andrea Coon a statue from her favorite movie, the Wizard of Oz, one year for Christmas, that stated "It's not where you go (in life) , it's who you meet along the way." The Lord has truly blessed this YouTube Channel of mine in so many aspects that I could never even have imagined in my wildest dreams; and I am so thankful for that. The best compliment one can ever receive is to be told that they have been a blessing. I am truly honored & grateful to have been told in so many letters & emails written to me over these past 7 years that my YouTube channel has inspired and been a blessing to others. So thanks again to all my viewers & subscribers for being such a blessing to me. I appreciate all of you. I had a request from Kerry Miller to dedicate this Hampton Inn & Suites tour to him so here you go Kerry. For more information on this hotel, you can check out their FB page at and for additional footage of this hotel, check out my 7 Million Views Celebration video at this link 23:57:27

Pretty Fast Dover Elevator At Marriott In Huntsville, Alabama

They were pretty busy so the footage here is basically one full ride and then a little bit of our 2nd ride (most of 2nd ride was too busy that didn't really make for a good video) No exterior photo as the one we took came out too blury and we didn't notice it at the time so we didn't get a retake on it.2016-11-21 00:12:33

For Sean Juth: Hampton Inn in Madison, Alabama
Sean Juth requested a shout out so here you go. While we were in Huntsville, AL over fall break, we took a short drive over to Madison, AL near the Huntsville Airport and discovered the Hampton Inn there had kind of a different lay out than most Hamptons. It looks like 2 separate buildings that have been joined together. I believe that it used to be something else and then was turned into a Hampton Inn. I thought we had more video footage from here but for some reason, I can't find it on the card that the elevator video is on so it might be on another card that I have misplaced for the moment. The elevator looks like it has been modded by Otis & I'm not sure what it was before then. Sean, maybe you know since you are in Huntsville area.2016-11-19 00:12:28

My 1st official Curio which is A Collection By Hilton includes scenic view from the top. Sadly, this historic hotel does not have an historic elevator but they do have a modded elevator. Very nice Inn to explore. Hope you enjoy watching the video. For more info on this hotel, you can check out their website at 21:11:28

Hampton Inn Woodruff Road Greenville, SC HD Re-Take
When we were in Greenville, SC last month, we stopped by this Hampton Inn even though we had already filmed the Dover elevator there back in 2011. They had done some renovations since the last time we were there so here is a HD retake of this particular Hampton.2016-08-28 21:11:27
Found Another Elevator (Otis Hydro Fit) In Vestibule Area At New Courtyard
At first, I thought this must be a growing trend to have elevators in the vestibule area but the use of this particular elevator actually makes more sense than an elevator going up to the room floors. Check out this video to see what the purpose of this elevator is for.2016-08-27 21:11:27
New Firepit at Hampton Inn Tunnel Road, Asheville, NC
Shout out to Andrea Coon & her fine staff for all they do. Earlier this month, I stayed at Hampton Inn Tunnel Road for a couple of nights. While I was there, Andrea gave me a couple of souvenirs from their recent renovations. Remember the "welcome to Asheville" that hung on the back wall at the front desk? Andrea gave me those letters now that they are not using those anymore because they have a new backdrop for the front desk area & she also gave me the picture of the Asheville map that hung out in the vestibule area. On one of the nights we stayed, we took time to enjoy the new fire pit out on the outdoor patio and we took a short video clip of it for ya'll. If you haven't seen the video I uploaded earlier of the new renovations, click on this link 21:11:26

Elevator In Dillard's At Haywood Mall in Greenville, SC
This is an HD retake of this elevator, it's been 5 years since I uploaded our first take on this elevator and in the comments, the guesses were generic, Montgomery, Schindler, Haughton, Westinghouse etc. Any new guesses on which brand this elevator might be? You can see the first take from 5 years ago here at this link, 21:11:24
Spirit Of Smokies Condos Scenic Otis Elevators
This was another stop for us when we filmed with 427 Elevating Productions (Elevatorman427) even though we had already filmed these before with Cannycart, these are still very nice scenic Otis elevators that run pretty well despite being very busy. We had a great time with Blake so be sure to check out his YT channel if you haven't had a chance to yet. 21:11:24
Wrapping Up The 2016 Summer Hampton Tour
Wrapping up the 2016 Summer Hampton Tour with a full hotel tour of this Hampton Inn that used to be a Holiday Inn which is kind of ironic because when the very first Hampton Inn was built and opened back in 1984, it was owned by Holiday Inn, Inc. Hilton acquired the brand in 1999 in a merger with Promus Hotel Corporation which by that time had ownership of the Hampton brand. Special thanks to Brandy at the front desk, it was nice to meet you & thanks for letting your "Hamptonality" shine through. Hope you all have enjoyed the "Summer 2016 Hampton Tour" video series on my channel as much as I have enjoyed exploring the various Hamptons this summer & even though the summer is coming to a close, I am looking forward to seeing more Hamptons in the near future & when I do, I'll be sure to share those videos with ya'll. Thanks for watching. This summer has been great and I hate to see it coming to an end but alas school time has already started back for me. I will upload videos as often as I can as I still have some regular elevator videos from the summer that I haven't gotten uploaded yet so stay tuned for those....

Vintage Otis Lexan Elevator at Gillette Motel With Elevatorman427
This is one we have filmed once before with Cannycart that we knew 427 Elevating Productions would like to film so we stopped here in Gatlinburg, TN when we were filming with him. Glad to see it hasn't been modded and is still the same as it was back in 2013. Be sure to check out Elevatorman427's YT Channel at 21:11:23

Baymont Inn & Suites in Pigeon Forge, TN
This was the last elevator that we filmed with Elevatorman427 before he had to get back to his condo to get ready for family plans that evening, but not last upload of our filming together. (as I'm not uploading them in order) It's an older Otis Series 1 with red floor indicators. Be sure to check out Blake's YT channel at 21:11:22

Gatlinburg Town Square Scenic Montgomery Elevators Modded by Otis?
