Stayed at the Line as it had been recommended by their sister hotel in NYC - The Nomad. I was on business in downtown Los Angeles, Hollywood and the West Side so the location was convenient.
At check in, check out, and in getting help for restaurant recommendations the front desk staff were friendly and very helpful. They recommended good places and persevered in getting me a reservation at a tough to get into restaurant.
The lobby had a fun vibe - young and hip. It is a Korea Town meeting spot - now a very vivacious neighborhood.
The rooms were a touch small but well designed, clean and comfortable. The exposed concrete showing on all walls (they just stripped the walls from the former hotel), the furniture and fixtures were well done - edgy but without being too much. The linens were great and the bathroom spacious with a fun large mirror.
I didn't spend much time in the restaurant / bar etc but heard that they were good.
- 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
