Lost 2014 Tour: Seoul Gateway Hotel

The Royal Garden at Waikiki is a Honolulu hotel which stood in for the Seoul Gateway Hotel in the season 2 episode "... And Found".  Jin is hired as a doorman at the hotel, but later resigns to protest his boss's treatment of a village boy and his Father.

The Royal Garden has a beautiful emerald exterior and, with a few strategically placed Oriental props, served nicely as a Korean high-end hotel.

Either the Royal Garden remodelled it front entrance after shooting took place, or the LOST prop department did another bang-up job.  In 2014 the Royal Garden has automatic doors instead of the pull-door, and the external vertical green pillars are nowhere to be found.
