King & Grove Coming to LA, Possibly with Two Hotels

Downtown Los Angeles is not only getting an Ace Hotel but it's also going to get a King & Grove Hotel, maybe even two of them!
Downtown LA blog Brigham Yen found out earlier this month that indeed King & Grove would open up inside the old Hotel Clark near 4th and Hill Streets in downtown's Historic Core district (and just a few blocks away from the intended Ace Hotel.) A rep for King & Grove confirmed the scoop but was not able to release any further details. Still, Brigham Yen had noticed some renovations going on at the hotel including a new pool deck and some new orange curtains.
But one hotel might not be enough for King & Grove as the blog now says that the old Trinity Auditorium at 9th and Grand Ave in downtown could possibly be a second King & Grove hotel as well.
Two King & Grove hotels in downtown LA? That might be a little excessive but then again, this area of Los Angeles desperately needs more cool places to stay. Sorry, Standard Downtown but you've got some serious competition coming.
