An affordable, comfortable place to stay in the heart of Koreatown.
In the midst of bustling Koreatown, not far from Wilshire Boulevard and an array of Korean and other ethnic eateries, Shelter Hotel is an affordable property with an unassuming, plain brown stucco exterior, surrounded by small residential apartment buildings. The 48 contemporary accommodations have accents of warm earth tones with custom-designed furniture and dark hardwood floors. Amenities include flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and small work areas. The deluxe rooms feature upgraded bathrooms accented with imported Italian tiles. The hotel is pet-friendly and has a small swimming pool where guests can relax in the warm California sunshine. For pampering with a difference, try out a body scrub at one of the neighborhood's Korean spas. A half mile walk takes visitors to the Wilshire/Vermont subway stop, where a ride on the Red Line makes the attractions of both downtown and Hollywood easily accessible without a car.
