Koreatown

Hotels near Koreatown, Los Angeles, United States .

When visiting Los Angeles, California, be sure not to miss the fun, funky, increasingly trendy neighborhood of K-town, better known as Koreatown. Spanning slightly under 5 square miles K-town is literally jam-packed with not just excitement but citizens too, as the neighborhood with the distinguishment of having the highest population density in all of Los Angeles. With the first settlements popping up in the area around the late 1800s, citizen Henry Gaylord Wilshire was instrumental in the formation of the neighborhood as a major landowner. The street traversing his property that the city commissioned to be built still bears his name, Koreatown main drag Wilshire Boulevard. Famous Koreatown landmarks include the Ambassador Hotel- former host location of the Academy Awards, and the Wiltern Theater. Koreatown was a hotspot for stars of the screen and stage between the 1940s and 50s when the likes of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra, Sammy David Jr., Judy Garland, Gene Kelly, Louis Armstrong, Howard Hughes and Julie Andrews frequented and or lived in the district. During the 1970s and 80s, following a period of economic struggle in the neighborhood, the population of Korean immigrants began to grow exponentially.

Since 2000 when Los Angeles began to promote smart-growth in the city by removing construction, tourist, and growth related taxes, Korean and Japanese investment in the area has continually grown. Today it is a center of nightlife, commerce, and affordable mid to high-end residential buildings. A culinary hotspot, find every type of cuisine from Korean BBQ, tofu houses, and Vietnamese Pho houses, to Mexican taco stands and American-style hamburger joints. Koreatown festivals include the Korean Festival & Parade, the annual Earth Day / Car Free Day Festival, the Indonesian Festival, and the Greek Festival.

Visitors to Los Angeles will enjoy Koreatown attractions like the Korean American Museum, the Korean Cultural Center, and the Thal Mah Sah Buddhist Temple. Choose from excellent Koreatown accommodation options like the Radisson Hotel, Ramada Inn, Kipling Residential Hotel, Western Inn, Oxford Palace Hotel, and JJ Grand Hotel.
