By

Starting on August 2, it will no longer be possible to make a reservation at the Hotel Chelsea. Hotel residents suspect that the move is a union-busting one.

Curbed reports that if you want to catch one last glimpse of the ghosts of Sid and Nancy, there are still rooms available for the next couple of nights.
