“Amazing place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

The girl suggest me upgrade my room to one in from of HollyWood sign for a few more money and it worths any cents. thanks girl, sorry forget your name. The room 707 was giant with a unique design. Every thing one needs was there, safebox, fridge, sofa, office, many soft pillows ...and ten points for the shower...
Only two things had bored me there, poor wifi signal and 807 neighbor making noisy the whole night. The willshire metro station is in front of the hotel. My last review I chose the wrong hotel, The Line is the right one.

Room Tip: Pick up one in from of Hollywood sign.

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 first night. I called the front desk the next morning and was told an engineer would look into the problem. When I arrived back at the hotel later in the afternoon the situation was unchanged. Additionally. the maids had left cleaning supplies in my room and had not changed the plastic liner on the ice bucket. I was the lucky one because my daughter's room had not been cleaned at all. I spoke to someone at the front desk about these issues and was assured they would be addressed. We returned around 10:30 that evening and my room was 75 degrees, I still had no liner for the ice bucket, and while the other room had been made up there was a pile of soiled towels outside the door. When I went downstairs to share my frustration one of the assistant managers intervened and changed our room. While the A/C worked somewhat better in the second room it was not up to the standards I have come to expect in other hotels. The termperature would drift up to 73 or 74 in the afternoon and struggled to get to 70 at night. While the staff exuded a willingness to provide service the follow-thorugh was abysmal. Other issues to consider prior to booking a stay at this property is the perpetual anarchy that exists at the valet stand (one night it took me 10 minutes to get from the street to the hotel door) and the fact that the there is no option for a hot breakfast except for room service. I can not in good conscience recommend this property.

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.

On the downside: I was confused during check-in when I was offered an upgrade from King to Studio for ~$40. I said no to the offer only to be given a free upgrade seconds later! Certainly a strange encounter -- made me wonder if front desk was trying to extract every last dime from me even when it wasn't necessary from room management standpoint.

Would come back again for sure, especially at this unbelievably discounted price!

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 Potato Pancakes, the BBQ Veggies, the Poke Me to the Gingerbeer. Breakfast can only be ordered from your room using the menu that is available. The café in the lobby was good if you want a quick bite to eat or want to try some interesting freshly made drinks. Hotel is conveniently located across from the Subway if you don't have your own transport. As everyone else has said - hip and trendy. Well worth the stay if that's your style.

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 all over the planet... families, lonely travelers, hipsters and people who had no clue what they were getting into. The service was friendly. The only negative for me was the restaurant... it's great for groups but not for single diners. Oh and be prepared for the clubby lobby on weekend nights... reminded me of the action that used to happen at the Delano on South Beach 10 plus years ago.

Room Tip: No a bad room... I was on the busy Whileshire side and it was quiet.

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 was good. Room was "cool" but lacked some basics: promised WiFi that actually worked, an iron, a shower that did not leak all over the floor. The bed was very comfy, the wall sized window with both scrim and black-out curtain was cool. Lobby was hip, cool, but too loud even at 8am. The WiFi did not work there either. The contrast of hip and no WiFi seemed odd. Liked the in-room "concept" booklets to explain what the creators were trying to do. Seemed overly self-conscious but.....it was hip.

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!

About The Line is a hotel collaboration by the Sydell Group with Roy Choi, The Houston Brothers, Sean Knibb, and Poketo.
