Schindler 5500 or 3300 Elevators? Brand New Hilton Garden Inn
Brand new Hilton Garden Inn located at Westgate Mall in Spartanburg SC has some pretty nifty Schindler Elevators. It's hard for me to tell if these are the 3300 or 5500 model. We decided to make a silent ride video on these so the sounds and tone etc could be heard clearly.2019-02-25 23:28:21
Schindler Elevator At Nellie's Southern Kitchen In Belmont, NC
This video is for Mrs. Evans whose birthday is today. Hope you enjoy it. This is a very good restaurant. Thanks for recommending it. Here's a bit of trivia for ya'll. It is owned by Kevin Jonas Sr and Denise Miller Jonas who are the parents of the music group The Jonas Brothers. By the way, I know potatoes is misspelled, I did that on purpose as Mrs. Evans is my British Lit teacher and I just wanted to see if she would notice. :)

My High School Senior Pictures Taken At The Foundry Hotel
I got my senior pictures taken on my 19th birthday at The Foundry Hotel in Asheville, NC by Andrea Coon. Here's some video snap shots that mom took of just some of the places the photo shoot took place in this unique hotel that has the motto that goes along with my school's theme (for their first graduating class of the school) which is based on Philippians 1:6 "And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue His work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns." (NLT) #goodwork #handcrafted #hardearned Special thanks to Andrea Coon, Jeffrey Cox and The Foundry Hotel for making a special day for me even more special. Stay tuned for a full hotel tour of this brand new hotel located in the historic buildings of the old steel factory that provided steel for the Biltmore Estate and other prominent buildings in Asheville, NC.

Holiday Inn Express in Greensboro NC Airport Location
Another one of our stops on our recent trip up to Greensboro last month. This is the hotel that I filmed at once before with Trevor (BCElevators) back in 2013 so this is basically a retake video. We popped in to see if there had been any mods to the elevators which there hasn't been which shows the great quality of Otis Series 5 elevators :)2019-02-10 23:28:17
One of the Best Elevator Cab Modernization at Hampton Inn & Suites
This is at Hampton Inn & Suites in Southpark Area of Charlotte NC. This is the same Hampton that I toured with Cannycart back 2011 and a hotel tour with the GM Marcel Hebert in 2012. The hotel has undergone some renovations and when our dryer gave out this past week and couldn't be fixed until the parts came in this coming week Mom came up with idea of making a reservation here so she could get the week's laundry done and I could see the renovations which has been something I have been wanting to do but haven't been able to fit in my schedule yet so we stayed here this past Friday night and did a full hotel tour. I'm told the lobby area is fixing to undergo some renovations next. Overall, very impressive hotel improvements made it even more impressive and classy. Special thanks to Marcel for room location which was right next to laundry room, that was a real blessing! Below are the links to videos mentioned above

Home2 Suites In Duncan, SC
This is the first Home2 Suites for Daly Seven Hotels. We stopped by this hotel on our way to Memphis over Christmas Break. The first elevator cab's floor indicator kept messing up, I think there must of been a circuit loose. The 2nd elevator cab had the floor indicator working normally. Overall a very nice addition to the Daly Seven Hotels family. For more information about Daly Seven Hotels, you can check out their website at 05:01:16
A Sometimes You Know God Just Winked At You Moment
We have had many God winks in our lives and we just had one happened this week when we were in Greensboro, NC. After a great visit with Daly Seven Hotels and exploring some of their hotels in town, we decided to grab some lunch before heading back home. Dad picked a place called Darryl's Wood Fire Grill and the host took us upstairs and stopped at the elevator cab booth. Amazing how God will wink at you sometimes when you're least suspecting it, just to let you know He cares about the little things as well as the big things in your life. :) Hope you enjoy this little video clip. BTW I do recommend Darryl's Wood Fire Grill, the service and the food were top notch, not to mention the decor. :) You can check out photos we took here on my Facebook Page 05:01:16

Let's Take A Look At A Dover Hydraulic Elevator Tank

JimLiElevators has filmed here before on his trip to NC several years ago. Stay tuned for a full hotel tour but for now enjoy this little segment where I had the opportunity to go inside the elevator machine room and see the Dover blue elevator tank that houses most of the components that makes this type of elevator work. We then take a ride on the Dover Impulse elevator. For the ones who are interested in the technical side of how everything works, here is several great resource links that I have found useful to understand the world of hydraulic elevators :)

Dyess Arkansas' Only Elevator? Johnny Cash Boyhood Home Museum
This is a really neat elevator and it might be the only elevator in Dyess, AR. I forgot to ask while there so I am not sure if there is anymore elevators but judging from the size of the town, I'm thinking it might be the only elevator in town. Johnny Cash was born in Kinsland, AR but his family moved to Dyess when he was around 3 years old. His boyhood home has been restored and looks as closely as it possibly can when Johnny was living there through out his childhood. The administrative building of Dyess Colony houses the museum that recollects Dyess' history along with a section dedicated to Johnny Cash and his family and career. For more information about this historic place, go to for photos we took here and out at the boyhood home of Johnny Cash go to my FB photo album at this link I also have a video of the journey from town to the location of the boyhood home at this link on my YT Channel 05:01:11

Sneak Peek of The Guest House at Graceland in Memphis, TN
Our recent trip to Memphis was part Christmas gift and also part Congratulations gift for me for doing so well in the dual enrollment program for college & career for my senior year of high school.

A Hampton Inn Trivia Video - First Hampton Inn's Original Location
In this video, we take a look at the original location which is in Memphis, Tennessee of the very first Hampton Inn hotel. It opened in 1984 under the division of Holiday Inn Brand. As you can tell in the video, the very 1st Hampton Inn was an outside door corridor property. It doesn't look like there is an elevator for this particular property. Hilton purchased the brand in 1999.2018-12-28 02:48:27

Dollywood's Glacier Ridge Christmas Tree Light Show 2018
I took the original audio off as it has music that would get copy right strike against. You can put your own Christmas music on to listen to while you watch this or you can listen to the sleigh bells that I replaced the original audio with. Hope ya'll enjoy the video. The light show is a pretty one and if you get the chance to see it in person, it is worth going to see.2018-12-18 02:48:23

This is the beautiful Hotel Monteleone and Andrea gives us a look around the lobby and takes a ride for us on the Otis Elevators. I think she did a fantastic job filming this video.
Thanks Andrea for being the sweet person you are! Have fun and safe travels. Merry Christmas!

TJElevatorfan's YouTube Channel 9th Anniversary Celebration
That's right, it's hard to believe that it was 9 years ago today that I started my YT Channel. My first video was uploaded on November 30th 2009. Thank you to all my viewers and subscribers for coming along with me on this wild journey. It's been a blast and even though I don't have the time to devote to it like I used to, I still enjoy this hobby and will continue to upload videos when I can. My first video was from the Hotel Roanoke which is now in the Hilton family under the Curio brand (used to be a Doubletree) and to celebrate my 9th anniversary on YT, we are going to highlight one of the newly renovated Hampton Inns that has always held a special place in my heart because I have so many great memories associated with this particular Hampton Inn that's located in Cornelius, NC.(Hampton Inn Charlotte Lake Norman) I got to spend some time working and visiting with this great Hampton team over my Thanksgiving break which was a lot of fun! I hope you all enjoy the video and a very special thank you to Alicia Fisher for taking the time to take us on a tour and for helping me with my high school senior project which I will have more details on that at a later date so stay tuned.... For photos taken through out the years at this very special Hampton Inn including this past week, check out my FB photo album at 01:32:50

Hotel Tour Of Marriott Center City Uptown Charlotte NC
Wells Fargo, where my dad works at, threw a big dinner event for their employees celebrating 25 years with the company which included an overnight stay at the Marriott Center City in our hometown of Charlotte NC so we got a "staycation" which was kind of neat. I ate in the room and did my schoolwork while mom and dad went to the dinner celebration for the evening. The hotel has undergone renovations since I filmed their elevators back in 2010. Very nice renovation from what I could tell. This was my first official stay at a Marriott hotel but I have stayed at various Courtyard by Marriott hotels before though.
Interesting notes that we didn't mention on the video:
* the room has no carpet but the floor stayed nice temperature even first thing in the morning
* The room is equipped with an Alexa device (another video demonstrating that will be forthcoming soon)

Franklin Graham at Billy Graham Library
Mom and dad went to the book signing event that Franklin Graham was holding at the Billy Graham Library in Charlotte NC on Wednesday, November 7th which would have been Billy Graham's 100th birthday. As a celebration to remember and honor his father, Franklin was signing copies of the book he wrote about his father called Through My Father's Eyes. I would have like to have gone but I was actually home from school that day feeling under the weather. Mom did something neat when they got up to Franklin which meant a lot to me since I couldn't be there like I had planned to. Thanks mom for thinking of me and Franklin for who you are and what you stand for. You can check out photos from this event on my Facebook Page at 03:28:16

This past Friday, I was in Asheville for a few hours to visit Andrea Coon (she is going to be taking my senior portraits and we were meeting over dinner to discuss the details) before heading out on our way home, we stopped by the Hampton Inn on Tunnel Road to take another ride on my favorite elevator and we noticed that Tunnel Road has gotten another new hotel so we popped in to explore their elevators which turned out to be Kone.2018-10-26 03:28:15

11 Million Views Milestone Special: Hampton Inn at Berry Farms
Thank you to all my viewers and subscribers for 11 million views! I hope you enjoy this special upload which include fireworks and a full hotel tour of a very nice new Hampton Inn & Suites located in Franklin at Berry Farms. This is where we stayed on our Tennessee trip back in August which was mainly a birthday trip for my mom. Dad & I surprised her with tickets to see Rory Feek in concert at the barn concert hall where the Joey + Rory TV show was filmed at. This was a neat event especially since the concert was actually on my mom's birthday and we got a chance to meet Rory after the concert for a few minutes. :) This Hampton is a unique shape like one you would see in a downtown area and we enjoyed our 2 night stay here. Again, thanks for watching!2018-09-08 01:33:54
Loretta Lynn's Dude Ranch Plantation Home In Hurricane Mills Tennessee
I have had several requests for a video to Hurricane Mills if we ever were in the area ever since I had uploaded our visit to the original childhood home of Loretta Lynn which is located in Van Lear, Kentucky. Hurricane Mills is the town that Loretta Lynn owns I believe along with her plantation home, museum & gift shop plus the replica of her Butcher Holler home place that she had built in memory of her parents. While we were there, we ate lunch at the Loretta Lynn Kitchen which I have included photos from there in this video as well. Hope you all enjoy it.

Driving To And Through The Town of Burns Tennessee
On our recent trip to Tennessee, we took a couple of side trips which this is one of them.

A Unique Tru by Hilton That Has Indoor Pool & A Sky Deck (Pigeon Forge)
This is built just behind the Home2 Suites in Pigeon Forge. It has an indoor pool and also a sky deck patio area with great views! We were lucky that there was a family going up to the sky deck as we got back to the first floor on the 2nd elevator ride so we rode along with them back up in the first elevator and got to see it. Sky Deck is key carded access only.2018-08-23 01:33:45
