As most urban hotels go, the room we had at the hotel was not large but efficient, functionally furnished with contemporary furniture and ceiling to floor window views of Hollywood Hills.
We stayed for a weekend while visiting our son who lived nearby so it was convenient for our needs.
We were impressed with the organic architecture and interior decor with emphasis on use of natural wood products for seats and tables. They also have a green house at the pool area where we were told, much of their salad greens and herbs served at the Pot restaurant are harvested.
The lobby is bustling with social activity and music at night with bars at each end. Thankfully, the noise did not get transmitted to our room.
Wifi was spotty but free in the rooms which is a plus for any hotel.
The hotel room snack bar included stuff like "intimacy kit", kits for insomniacs and other unusual but helpful accoutrements.
We would definitely return here, when visiting our son or wanting to stay in downtown LA.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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
