The refurbishment of Downtown's century-old Hotel Clark at Fourth and Hill has been moving glacially (or not at all) for years now, but seems to finally be kicking into
full half-gear. The property, which is set to become a trendy hotel operated by the King & Grove brand, now has tarps over its fire escapes and workers covering its facade with gray paint (though whether that's primer or the final coat remains to be seen). The new Hotel Clark--it's keeping the name--recently applied for a liquor license, which blogger Brigham Yen takes as further evidence that an opening is on its way (there have been many fakeouts). Whenever it does open its doors, the hotel will feature 347 rooms, two restaurants, and banquet space in a part of DTLA that could use a lift.
