We were all excited back in February when the BLVD Hotel opened in Studio City, Calif. because it promised stylish boutique rooms at more affordable prices than those Hollywood hotels. But sadly, it's opening year has been marred by a shootout.

KTLA News reports that a man was shot in the hotel's parking garage. He had been at the hotel with some friends and got into an argument with someone. Police are still looking for the gunman while the victim is recuperating from non-life-threatening injuries.

But the incident gave guests quite a scare:

Bar patrons and hotel guests reported hearing five loud gunshots before seeing the suspect flee down Ventura Blvd. A bar employee described the shooting to police showing carefully spaced shots being fired A broken wine bottle may have been used in the assault ­or was dropped by a startled witness.

Ugh. We feel sorry for the BLVD Hotel, it's not quite the grand opening year they were hoping for.
