Venturing to Koreatown might not be at the top of your "TO SEE" list when visiting Los Angeles but trying POT at The Line Hotel should be at the top of your "TO EAT" list.

POT is the cheekily-named restaurant from native chef, Roy Choi, the man responsible for the wildly successful Kogi Korean taco trucks. Here at The Line Hotel, he's doing Korean food "through the eyes of an American with Korean blood."

In short, it's not the most traditional Korean food you will find in Koreatown but it's crazy tasty and the entire experience of the POT restaurant--which has a vibe that is both laid-back and turnt up--is something you shouldn't miss.

Then came along Andaz West Hollywood which gave us stylish accommodations on the Sunset Strip without the pretense and without ghastly WiFi charges.

In February, we saw the opening of the Ace Hotel Downtown LA which gave us several reasons to visit downtown; the top two reasons being the rooftop bar and the incredible historic theater.

Now, The Line Hotel has opened in LA's Koreatown, giving visitors a chance to stay in a part of the city that's long been vibrant but often overlooked. We toured The Line Hotel a few weeks ago and fell instantly in love, er, in line with what we saw. Here are 11 things to check-out when you check-in:
