Whitney Houston’s body remains in the Beverly Hilton Hotel and RadarOnline has exclusively learned that her close friends and family, including 18-year-old daughter Bobbi Kristina, are in the hotel room right now paying their last respects.

According to numerous sources close to the family, Los Angeles Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter entered the hotel room where Whitney’s body remains around 9 p.m. PST and he is investigating alternate routes to get her body out of the hotel since a helicopter is unavailable.

While Clive Davis throws his annual pre-Grammy party, many fans have gathered outside the hotel to pay tribute to the I Will Always Love You singer by laying flowers and lighting candles.
