Less than a year old, super sleek and modern, The Line is well-situated in K-town, a neighborhood not necessarily known for being a haven for tourists, but convenient and cool nonetheless. The ambience here is industrial chic... and one they really took seriously. I observed that the hallways on my floor, with their distressed cement walls and cottage-cheese ceilings, really... More

I wish I could give this place a ZERO. Where oh where to begin, first and foremost they should change their name to the HELL hotel, and here is why. Keep in mind that I have a 4 month old baby with me the whole time. We checked in to the hotel on 08.18.14, as soon as we got to... More

Great hotel. Rooms are very good and very well designed. A great stay - would stay again. Pros: comfy bed, nicely designed rooms, hollywood views. Restaurant on level 2 is awesome - go for the steak!!! Cons: air con sooooo noisy (almost couldn't have it on at night), wifi crap, parking expensive ($32 a night). All staff were lovely except...

I booked 2 rooms for 3 nights at The Line. When I checked in the thermostat in my room was set at 38 and the temperature in the room was 75. I thought that perhaps my wife had adjusted the controls and did not give it a second thought. The temperature in the room never went below 74 during our... More

The design in lobby and in room is very original. More important, it appropriately uses the industrial and bare design to maximize space (or the sense of it) which meant spacious studio room and a comfy lobby. I enjoyed in-room dining which has a multicultural menu and the remote-controlled two-layer curtain which I thought was a cool but necessary feature.... More

If ever staying in LA, this is the place to stay. Staff went out of their way to ensure everything was as it should be. Upon arrival we upgraded to a view of the Hollywood Hills for an extra $20 (quieter side of the hotel if you are travelling with small children). Dinner at POT was very good from the... More

Hard to believe this was a tired old Ramada a few years ago. They renovated and kept the cool 60's architecture, and added a few twists like the exposed concrete walls and offbeat furnishings. The bed was very comfortable... and the blackout blinds that work like a garage door can be fun to play with. Other guests included people from... More

Pulling into the Line driveway at 10pm I was greeted by chaos: An entry swarming with people and loud pulsing music. Some sort of hip bar thing going on. It was hard to hear the check-in clerk and I felt rattled./// The hotel is very chic and designed: I felt like I got a $450 experience for much less....so that... More

Doesn't get much better than that. Super cool hotel at surprisingly great prices. Great design, fun activities, friendly and efficient staff. Very easy to get anywhere from the Line. I'll be staying there whenever I'm in LA!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
About The Line is a hotel collaboration by the Sydell Group with Roy Choi, The Houston Brothers, Sean Knibb, and Poketo. The mid-century building was designed by Daniel Mann Johnson + Mendenhall in 1964, the same architects behind the iconic American Cement Building down Wilshire Blvd. The building has been restored and fully renovated with re-imagined public spaces and guest rooms designed by Sean Knibb. The Line sits alongside Koreatown's famous pre-1940 brick colonial revival buildings, in a neighborhood that's working and playing 24 hours a day thanks to Southern California's highest concentration of restaurants, bars, and round-the-clock businesses. ... more   less
