If you couldn't get enough of Hello Kitty's super-cute retrospective exhibition, Koreatown's The Line Hotel offers the ultimate opportunity to live in the animated non-cat's adorable world. As mentioned, the stylish Koreatown staycation spot gave a few of its rooms a serious Sanrio makeover, which includes a stylish VIP lounge decked out by LA landscape architect Sean Knibb (he also dreamed up the hotel's sleek interiors)—and we scored an exclusive sneak peek inside.

The 40-years-young character's LA takeover (have you scored all those Hungry Hunt pins yet?) culminates with the Hello Kitty Convention, which kicks off at MOCA's Geffen Contemporary tomorrow. Sadly, the hotel's Hello Kitty room packages are completely sold out, but the VIP suite will be open for tours to convention attendees. Below, explore the official hotel sponsor's incredibly cool space—complete with sweet cake couch by Vienna-based artist Dejana Kabiljo—which could possibly be open for reservations soon. (Cross your fingers!)

The Hello Kitty x Knibb Design Suite is open hotel guests and Hello Kitty Con attendees from 11am to 1pm and 3pm to 5pm on Thursday, October 30th and Friday October 31st, and from 11am to 1pm on Saturday, November 1st.
