Without trying to sound cheesy or anything, The Line was my favourite/best hotel I’ve ever stayed at. Inspiring, stylish, clean – which made it one of my one of my favourite memories from my American adventure.
So what makes this hotel so amazing?
Impeccable service is the number one point. Everyone we met was nice and helpful. Be nice to the people at the reception and you might be as lucky as we were by scoring a free upgrade to a room with a view. Staff is also very good looking (must be the Californian air?)
The view.. oh the view. Rooms have floor to ceiling windows, facing either the Hollywood hills or Wilshire Boulevard (aka a very busy street). If you are lucky to be facing the hills, you might be just like us trying your best to stay awake for just a teeny bit longer to enjoy it. You will not see the ocean so only city lovers will appreciate it in full.
Décor is simple, industrial, minimalistic and actually reminds me of my office. Concrete walls, bright and stylish accessories. My dream come true.
Even the content of their bar fridge and snack area has been carefully selected. Those sleeping pills (the only thing I’ve purchased) work! Bathrobes, magazines and artwork is also available for purchase.
At times it feels like you are in a bunker, but everything is so fascinating and beautifully made you can’t help but stare at everything and be happy. Really.
Coffee. Good/great/drinkable coffee is BEARY difficult to find in most places in the States. I am not counting Starbucks/Gloria Jeans, etc. Coffee at The Line was amazing. We had to have two each. Food at the Cafe downstairs is great.
Pot, a Korean restaurant on one of the floors, serves mouth watering Korean food. Everything was really great. I can’t remember one dish we didn’t like. Mister C and I were very careful when giving tips at restaurants. It is a bit of a foreign concept to us not having to give any tips in New Zealand, the staff or food had to be above average to earn a decent tip. We left 30% that night, which is a major tip. 😉
I still can’t forget this funny little dog I saw in the lift called Teeny. Not surprisingly she also has a brother.. called Tiny.
Parking. Our 2015 model Camaro (rented of course) also needed a place to spend the night… the cost of valet parking does bite. Kinda worth it though, especially if you aren’t used to these things.
Not super close to the main sights, but just across the road from a train station. Handy to the Hollywood Boulevard and Dolby theatre.
