So, are they expecting that many East Asian tourists? Or is it just because the hotel is owned by a Korean company?

I always thought the whole number-skipping thing was a silly thing that only those cultures did...but then, I started working at a hospital that has no room 13 in its ER, and no room 666 on its sixth floor. Superstition is everywhere, it seems .

Note the Metroplis cranes. The Wilshire Grand is peaking just behind One Wilshire.

Sorry, I'm directionally-inept when it comes to LA, but Fig Central is to the far right of the pic, correct?
