But when a hotel chooses to cover its walls with cool wallpaper design, we get a little obsessed. Here are 8 hotels with wallpaper that has us all like, “Whoa.”

Part of the indie allure of this Koreatown hotel are the cement walls in the guestrooms. But here’s a little secret: certain sections of the wall are actually wallpapered drywall which features the exact same cement look as the rest of the walls. #mindblown #right?

This converted 19th century chateau has exotic wall coverings in most of its rooms and suites, but the most iconic is the hot air balloons that line the winding staircase that leads down to the lobby.
