The Boyle Hotel (AKA Mariachi Hotel) is a historic structure in the Boyle Heights neighborhood of Los Angeles. It was built in 1889 and is one of the oldest surviving structures in the city. For many decades it operated as a hotel, most recently as a low end flop house. It's nickname derives from the fact that it faces Mariachi Plaza, a focal point of Mexican-American culture, and traveling musicians frequently stayed there. In 2011-2012 it was restored and is now used for offices, primarily attorneys (abogados).

On 10 April 2004, when it was still being operated as a hotel, a rifle was fired from room 211 in the direction of Mariachi Plaza. The bullet struck Orlando Merced, severely injuring him. The room had been registered to Rodolfo Martin.
