    Presently surprised was tagging along on my boyfriends business trip so needed a place where I could go out and be entertained and not to far for him from his work place. This was right in the middle. Was a bit scared that it was in Korea town but very surprised . Ultra modern with exposed walls love the floor to ceiling windows. I unfortunately did not get a hollywood hills view but none the less nice room with A/C cable fitness room, wish the pool would have been open. We stayed on the 8 th floor. Valet was wonderful nice, friendly, opening doors making conversations. I will say the staff is amazing all young and friendly recommended a great restaurant to go to. The girl at guest services recommended and booked spa services for me. The staff rally makes this place they are super friendly and fun. Every time I had a question they answered it they recommended I use Über as a form of transportation which turned out great used it multiple times on my trip. Was still close enough to go to Beverly Hills and see the sights. Could rent their bikes for free and stroll down the street to the park I walked the street went and got boba and felt safe. Very confidently located by bars and places to eat. If you don't want to try korean food there is a chipotle, subway, Carl's jr, pink berry starbucks just across the street or a block down.  The cafe is not open yet but there is breakfast served for guest in the morning i did not attend but my boyfriend did and said it was good . Only complaint I wish they offered one bottle of complimentary water in the room and tooth paste to the amenities . I expected the bathroom to be modern as well and it seemed a bit dated . Overall a wonderful stay . The hotel staff made my trip enjoyable without their suggestions I would have been lost.

    If you're looking for a trendy hotel to stay in for one night then this is fine.  If you're planning to stay for more than a few days or on a business trip, STAY FAR AWAY.  This is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in.  The rooms are tiny and the walls/windows are so thin that you can hear EVERYTHING in the next room and out on the street, even if you are up on a higher floor (Hollywood view side).  I stayed here for one week on a business trip, and could not sleep at all the first few days.  Also, the housekeeping here is a disaster.  Out of the 7 days I was here, they showed up 3 times, and only because I complained to the front desk multiple times a day.  They just cannot get it together here, and there is a serious lack of communication between the front desk and in-house services.  On a positive note, most of the front desk staff are amazing, and gave me a $50 comp to use for their horrible housekeeping service.  If I had known this hotel was such a disaster, I never would have stayed here.  I've learned my lesson and warn friends to avoid staying at The Line.

    I gave it two stars for the hotel itself. It's clean and pretty much live every night.  The hotel has a lounge in the main lobby which is always packed over weekend.  I don't know if it's just me or the main bar in the lobby trains their bartenders to rip people off.  It happened to me twice just last night.  Once with a bartender, my total was $12 for a drink.  I gave him $20 and he didn't give back any change and went to the next guest.  He told me to wait after he served 3 more guest after me, before giving me my change.  Weird move.  Then later on, I ordered one Hennessy and coke and a glass of water with a different bartender this time.   I was in a hurry and didn't realize I had paid $26 for one drink.  At didn't realize this until I had already walked away from the bar.    So that was it for me that night.  Then a friend of mines told me that she had a issue with the bartenders too.  She totaled $23, gave the guy $40 and he gave her change $1.   She confronted him right away and he slaps the corrected change back  at her rudely.

    I'll start by saying this hotel is very pretty most defiantly on the modern side. My brother booked this hotel for me and my family which was me 7 mos pregnant my son 5 yrs old and my husband. Once we got there they gave us the wrong room so had to move 4 floors down we ended up on the 5 th floor. We got back to the hotel around 9 apparently the hotel turns into. Night club on Thursdays Fridays and Saturdays the music was sooooo Loud keep in mind I'm 33 at about 1:45 I called the front desk the girl informed me that the music would stop around 2am and also informed me it was Saturday Night! The ppl in the room mixer to us was having any after party extremely loud as well. Called again and they moved  us to another room on the 8th follow this room was bed not the 2 bed room that my brother paid for. All this took place around 2:40 am! I would not recommend this hotel for a family at all! This would be more like a party hotel for sure.

    The front desk and management at this hotel are horrible. When we showed up with a confirmation from a third party whom they had contracted to book rooms for them, they refused to honor the reservation saying they would only honor the confirmation when received directly from their third party contractor. Imagine that, a hotel that won't honor a reservation made for one of their rooms from one of their authorized representatives. Accordingly, we were made to wait for our room for 45 minutes and only got it after insisting that we were not willing to wait all night. We were further subjugated to having to pay the hotel directly until the situation resolved itself. We spoke to management afterwards and they just apologized for the "inconvenience". By the way, don't pay full price for the room. They come heavily discounted, about 50%. Expect to pay $30 to park your car.

    We were there for one night and had a wonderful experience. They upgraded us and treated us very well. The staff was friendly and informative. They even gave us free parking for our niece who was coming to meet us. We had a lovely view of the Hollywood Hills. The bed was very comfortable and the linens were top notch. They are a new hotel so they need to keep working on finishing up. There was street noise in the morning because you are in the downtown area.

    It was a fun stay.

    The Line Hotel is located in the heart of LA's Koreatown.  If you do not have a reason to stay in Koreatown, the hotel is a little remote from the rest of Downtown LA.  Rooms are on the small side but nicely renovated.  We stayed on 5th Floor and we could hear and feel the music from the Club on the 2nd Floor.  Definitely ask for a room on a higher floor.  Overall, not a great hotel but not bad either.

    This review is for the bar only, which SUCKED! The vibe is pretty good and so is the DJ, but the drinks tasted like CRAP. I ordered a gin and tonic and got neither gin nor tonic. My friend asked for vodka with a lime and got lime juice with some vodka in it. WTF?!  And valet parking is $8 with validation. :(

    Such a cool hotel! It has a contemporary vibe and modern architecture. Though some of the art is a bit kitschy, the major moves are there - large windows with automatic blinds, concrete walls, and eclectic furniture. The bar in the lobby is very loud on the weekends, but we could not hear anything from our room. Also, this hotel was very clean!

    There were a lot of nice things about this hotel; nice staff, free bikes, great bartender, safe, nice location,  hip urban decor, quiet rooms, great view (with big windows)  of the hills on the 12th floor, down comforters, nice pillows, excellent room service (food and menu), flat screen, extra outlets, stocked honor bar, remote shades. That being said, one would expect this for some $400+ a night.  So, why did I give them only 2 stars?  Might seem like a little thing, but it's the little things that often leave an impression. There were two wash/face cloths the first day in the room.  I would have liked 4 but that's ok, they couldn't read my mind.  I then forgot about it and ran out the next day, just leaving a tip for the housekeeper but didn't leave a note asking for 4. When I came back to the room later that day, there were NO washcloths left. So, I called down to housekeeping and nicely asked if they could please send up 4 wash cloths as none were left after the room was cleaned that morning. "Right away, they said". There was a knock at the door some 20 minutes later; I handed her a tip and she handed me 3 wash cloths, not 4. RATS! Oh, well...so 3 is pretty close to 4 so I didn't complain, although I wasn't really understanding why it was so tough to get washcloths.  Finally, on the next day 3, I left a note and a VERY NICE TIP (I tipped housekeeping every day but this time I guess I was wondering what it would take to get 4 wash cloths. My note read, ."Thank you for the nice clean room for the past three days  and could you leave 4 face cloths today please?" When I returned to the nice clean room after they left...would you believe....NO FACE CLOTHS!  At this point,  I was really not happy.  This was like an episode out of Seinfeld! This was ridiculous!  So, I walked into the hallway and found the housekeeper just coming out of another room, thanked her for the nice clean room and told her that I didn't have any washcloths and asked if she had some on her cart 4. She apologized and just as this was happening, the supervisor was walking by and also apologized and said she'd send them right up.  "Right up" never came. I NEVER GOT THE WASH CLOTHS! I don't get it. I was nice, I tipped, I was clear in my requests and in my mind, I sort of ended up begging and pleading...still, no wash cloths. Maybe they didn't want my business and this was a subtle way of telling me so, I don't know.  Anyway, it really left a very bad taste in my mouth and it may sound silly, but I'm not sure I'll ever go back.

    My best friend booked two rooms for us for my thirtieth birthday.  We were greeted by Rick (the owner?) at check in and a staff of people that were so helpful and eager to help.  We were offered water and when we arrived to our room, we were ecstatic.  The rooms are gorgeous, have amazing views and are beautifully decorated.  Modern and comfortable at the same time, I would recommend The Line to everyone who is looking for a great, central location for a nice getaway.

    I love this place. The feel is very artistic and hip. The customer service was great. Got checked in smoothly and quickly.  Beautiful view from out room of Wilshire. Continental breakfast. Since everything is new everything looked so neat and clean no odd smells etc..Comfty bed. Chill bar downstairs in the lobby at night. Totally a fan and will be back. Hopefully they keep the place up :-)

    more reasons not to stay there. I have to go to LA for a week for work reasons. The Line isn't my first choice,  but I saw on kayak they were offering rates of $125 a night with a prepay so I thought about doing it. Then I went to The Lines website and saw per night even with a pre-pay it would be at least $175. I wrote to inquire why I would ever use the hotel's own website since the rates were so much higher even for a prepay, and I was told this is standard everywhere--that if you book through a discounter you will get any old room, "whatever hotel has available when you check in,"  but if you do it with them at a much higher rate this won't be the case (I guess?). Actually I'm more used to hotels saying they will match offers seen elsewhere, and wanting to avoid ostentatiously jacking up the price on their own site, should an unsuspecting customer begin and end with their site. But this is good to know if you are thinking of booking through a site that is not their website, because they are saying they will stick you with a bad room if necessary and that you will be a lower priority. And they are also telling you that rates on their own website will always be much higher than they will be elsewhere. So no point in going there unless you have money to burn. But if you get a cheaper rate on a different website they'll give you a worse room. You can't win at the Line. They need to work on their public relations, in putting this across to people like me in a way that suggests it is not really a bad thing.

    We stayed at The Line Hotel a couple weeks ago and had a great experience. I had dined at POT a couple weeks prior and off of the strength of that great experience, decided to give The Line a go for an LA staycation away from the South Bay. The experience was A-1 from the moment we walked in. The receptionist was extremely friendly and accomodating and gave us a free room upgrade without us asking. The lobby bar and snack bar was awesome...an Old Fashioned on tap sounds like a big no-no but it was surprisingly good. The red bean buns & breakfast pizza at the cafe were great. The rooms are on the smaller side but the minimalist decor and view instantly make you forget about that. David Irvin did an amazing job with the branding. Super comfy king sized bed and a wall to wall, floor to ceiling window showing all of Hollywood (sign included). The lobby goes off at night with great music and a great crowd, im sure the line can get long but since we were staying at the hotel, no line for us. The next morning we ate at Roy Choi's newest spot, Commissary. The feeling and design of that space is amazing. The food was standard breakfast fare so we'll definitely be back for dinner service. Thank you The Line, youre definitely my favorite new hotel in LA. All the style and ammenities without the pretentiousness you get at other LA posh hotels like the Sofitel. we will definitely be back.

    Honestly best hotel I've ever stayed at. The staff is incredibly helpful and have surprisingly upbeat attitudes. There is one blonde Asian lady that seems to refuse to smile ever but other then her haven't met a rude staff member. The area is very alive at night and plenty of different food and drinks venues. Great stay and can't wait till I'm back in the area to come back.

    I write this review because I sincerely want The Line to do well. The hotel is gorgeous  as is the bar. We live in the neighborhood and we were really excited when Line opened; we thought this could be our weekly haunt. After tonight and several similar experiences, we have to reconsider. Our waitress brought my husband's drinks without ice each time, though he kept specifying "on the rocks." For her to go back and get the ice for the drink took forever each time though it wasn't busy. At one point we had two waitresses waiting on us. But somehow, in the end, it still took 45 minutes to get our bill though we asked anyone and everyone in a Pot t-shirt to please send our waitress over. What was our lovely waitress with the blond side braid doing? She was doing shots with the group of guys a few tables over. We saw one of the servers tell her that we needed our bill but she never came with it. Instead she took shots with another table, took selfies with them and played with a woman's baby for like 20 minutes. We asked again and again, to anyone who could help us. At one point, a server asked if we'd gotten our bill yet and we said no and that we had been waiting for over half an hour. Finally, waitress #2 came with it after we flagged her down. If it were a Saturday night or a busy night we would understand. But it was relatively quiet and it's a Thursday. Anyway, Roy Choi, POT and the Line Hotel are amazing but they need to rethink their service-style and who they hire because no matter how cool the vibe is and how avante-garde the drinks are, if it takes 45 minutes to settle the tab and they consistently get our orders wrong (this is whiskey on the rocks, people--really hard to screw up!) their main demographic will evaporate along with any optimism or good wishes about their business.

    Trendy bar attached to a hotel.  Blasted EDM music when we arrived at 12:30PM, which was pretty cool. The prices for alcohol are a little on the expensive side.  I believe it was about 7-8 dollars for a beer.  The bartender was also a little impatient and rude.  I can see that if the place is packed, but give me some time to read the menu...

    Location is awesome. So close to everything in ktown. Love that. Some of the staff were nice. We got to see a korean actress (very popular at the moment) and saw roy choi just walking around so that was pretty cool. Otherwise everything else was just ok. The room is all modern with cement walls and contemporary furniture but I felt cramped the whole stay. For instance the bed area, I slept on the side of the bed with the tv and during the middle of the night whenever I went to the bathroom, I'd either hit my head on the tv (and I'm a short girl) or hit my shin on the bed (there is very little space between the end of the bed to the window. I felt so confined in that little space.The window is floor to ceiling so that makes the room look bigger but the space is very tight.

    Bathroom was very minimal and dirty. The ceiling vent had sooo much dust and when the ac was on, the dust would keep falling off into the toliet. It just made me feel gross knowing all that nasty dustballs were flying all over the room. Housekeeping felt inept and everything in the bathroom just felt dirty- also no fan!

    At the end of the three night stay, there was nasty sewage smell on the hallways. I was sooo grossed out! Had to hold my breathe going to the elevators. Yuck! Will not stay here again.

    I recently stayed at The Line Hotel as part of a business trip. I did appreciate the attention they paid to making sure their style was consistent and the staff were super friendly and helpful.

    However, I felt that this was not a great hotel overall. My main gripes were that key amenities were definitely lacking including:
    1) Food - other than breakfast being available in the morning there was no room service or restaurant, which is a problem given there isn't a great selection around the hotel if you don't like Korean
    2) Internet - The Wifi was incredibly poor with the router going down routinely across my floor and those of my colleagues during our stay and when it did work it routinely dropped my device off the network making it impossible to even do light surfing
    3) The music - the music they played in the downstairs was incredibly loud, clubbing type of music so it ran through the bar/breakfast area and the lobby. While that makes sense for a Saturday night it was not great at 7am in the morning and even on those weekend nights it did mean you spent most of the night shouting (read: not great for client entertainment unless you don't want to talk to your clients)

    So my summary. Ok hotel at the moment with potential to get much better, but I wouldn't book there again.

    The design of the spaces in the hotel is also incredible.

    Decided to check out commissary as we live right down the street for some drinks last night.  HORRIBLE service to say the least. The bartender, Talia M ( red hair with tattoos) was so incredibly rude we will not be returning.  After standing at the bar for well over 10 mins we were finally able to get her attention. Looked like she was too busy yelling " I hate this night" and complaining about customers to the other bartender.  When we were finally able to order I had asked about their speciality drinks.  She rolled her eyes and said " they are good, do you want it or not".  Bottom line this girl is a horrible addition to your team!!

    I can't wait until this hotel opens up. I love the colors (the pastel blues of the furniture when you walk in), the decor...it definitely feels like K-town. Trendy, hip, very LA with elements of Korean because of it's location. You could see the influence that Roy Choi had in this hotel by the hip hop references towards the ceiling in the cafe. There was a "soft opening" for the hot pot restaurant but we didn't get to try it. Nevertheless, I look forward to trying it soon. The bar was fun and interesting with its $2 "korean bodega" snacks that can definitely compliment the exotic selections on the menu that include soju flavored with "natto", "curry" or "kimchi". The natto cocktail which I tried was not bad but I decided to order the "arugula" which the bartender described was refreshing and I would have to agree. My guests found it to be an "acquired" taste but my palette is pretty open-minded. Their still working on the 2nd floor speakeasy bar, restaurant..etc. and I can't wait to see the finished product. Our bartender said that it's slated for a "July" opening which = fun rooftop parties in the summa ;) Free wifi in the cafe, by the way, and their tiramisu slices looked tempting next to their "hello kitty" pastries. Oh, and before I end this, they have a "Poketo" store inside too. Looking forward to it's completion.

    The vibe of the lobby is pretty cool. They have free wireless, and I live across the street, so it's nice to come here to work for a change of scenery. But jesus, the waiters really do push you out.  It's really rude.  I've never really gotten the vibe that I'm welcomed unless I order food (even though I just paid 23 dollars for two cocktails, which is outrageous in an of itslef).  Sorry, but your menu sucks.  Dumpling pot but I can't choose what kind of meat of I want?  What if I'm allergic to one of them?  I still pay for them?  Right now, I am sitting here (about to leave).  Half of the tables are empty and the waiters are just doing the minimum necessary.  Your loss. :)

    I have worked in the hotel industry for several years,

    that being said I will compliment them on their service which I thought was fantastic. Anything they didn't have they were more than willing to go out and get it for a modest fee, that being said I went on the first week of opening so I think that had I gone when all the amenities had been opened that my review would have gone up to no less than a 4 star rating. the service I feel is the hardest thing to put into place in a hotel. I loved the modern designing and the staff were very helpful in trying to get us to different places we might like. One of the concierge agents kept saying he would give us directions to this place and slip it under our door, but ultimately he never did and he must have promised this 3-4 times. I didn't mind (as I am pretty self sufficient) but I could see how this might have bothered someone else. In a year's time, I hope to come back and re-review this place with a better rating. I see some potential and for the price I paid of 135, there is NO superior but as a four star hotel they still need a bit of time to mature.

    I was staying in LA for the night and was looking for a good central location close to the metro and stumbled upon this hotel. I was hesitant to book because I didn't want to spend too much on a nights stay when I did not plan on staying in the room much but I fell in love with the hotel set up just from looking at the web site. Luckily I found a good deal on orbitz and booked my room right away. As soon as I drove in the staff greeted us and were very friendly. We came early so no room was available yet but we were able to drop our stuff off then took the metro to go galavanting. When we got back to the hotel it was late but we were very happy about how the room looked. The room didn't have the best view but I loved how the foot of the beds faced the windows and how the rooms looked very modern. The decor was simple but nice. I wish I had more time in LA to enjoy what the hotel offered. They had bikes you can rent for free and the restaurant looked like they had a nice menu. They loss one star from me because I was charged an extra $170 and it took me calling them twice 2 weeks after my stay for the charges to finally clear. The staff was friendly and helpful each time I called. If your in LA and want a nice, clean, and centrally located hotel next to public transportation come here.

    Fantastic location, excellent rooms for the price, great Korean food, and a superb (if young) staff. The lobby becomes a hopping nightclub Thursday through Saturday, so be prepared for lobby noise--but it doesn't reach the rooms. Two tips: pay a bit extra for a view of the Hollywood hills (including the iconic sign). And borrow a complimentary bike (with lock, saddlebag and helmet) to see the city up close. With a bike and a Metro pass (Metro entrance is across the street) you can see most of the city (except maybe Westwood and Santa Monica) without the hassle of a car.

    What a cool vibe! Stayed here just for a night back in January, just after they had re-opened with the new modern chic design.

    Walk into the lobby and they are playing Toro y Moi, perfect. The staff was impeccably dressed, with beverages offered at first entry. There was a little mix up with the reservation code and dates but management changed it quickly and everything worked out great.

    The speakers in the room were an added bonus, for someone who loves to listen to music at all times. I wish I had a bigger suitcase to have taken one of those chairs. The decor was amazing and the independently designed brochures about the neighborhood and the designers were genius. The map and explanations of things to do in Koreatown was great and super helpful - led us to a great Mexican restaurant and bar near by! The next morning we didn't want to leave. PS the soap is heavenly.

    Oh, also, the continental breakfast is good and so cute! Fresh fruit and yogurt in little jars with fresh mint. They have just thought of all the right things! The perfect hotel for a young, hip couple visiting LA!!

    This review is strictly for a lounge, Didn't stay at hotel nor try food. Went here for a first time with a friend last week. It was about 99% Asian but there were still surprising Caucasions milling about. They might has made up a whole 1%  of the crowd! Imagine that! :p  Drinks were pricey but DJ was excellent! Spun hip hop most of the time we we're there. Crowd seemed to be mostly 20 somethings. It did get packed in there as night went on but no one seems to dance at this place. The hour or so we were there saw maybe 4 or 5 people dance the whole night,,,,for like 5 or 10 seconds then stopped. Not  sure if it was a bad night? Or this venue is lounge only? Good place to stand around and talk among friends. Not so much to dance.
    Probably won't return here cause I like to go places where there's more energy on the dance floor but I gave the place a shot so now I know. Come here if you want to lounge or have some place else in mind to go after this otherwise you're in for a long night.

    stayed at the line for the last week in feb and was very pleasantly surprised!

    a little weird with the asbestos 'popcorn' ceiling in the hallways, but walk in to a lofty lobby with interesting seating, and an adjacent (apparently poppin') nightclub/bar/restaurant.

    the rooms are worth staying here for though. we stayed on the 8th floor in a room facing the hollywood hills, and even a view of the hollywood sign. the concierge and valet staff were always warm and personable, and even made an effort to remember our names and ask how we were doing every time they saw us. really appreciated the customer service!

    free wifi is rad! ...except that they're still figuring out how to make it fully functional cuz apparently the concrete walls prevent the wifi from working all the time. i was able to maintain a fairly steady connection like 75% of the time, but the other 25% was a technological rollercoaster.

    the beds were amazingly comfy, and we enjoyed using the remote controlled curtains (when they were functioning properly).

    all in all i'd definitely stay here again. beautiful rooms with tons of natural light for shooting in (if you're an out of state blogger or photographer looking for studio space) :)

    The room was very small, the front desk help was not helpful at all, I asked to speak to the manager and I waited for 2 hours and he never came out to talk to me at all. I was expecting better service and a nicer, cleaner and bigger room. What a waste of my money......... Note-the valet staff is awesome and very helpful..

    Stayed at the hotel for a conference in LA.  It has a MOCA vibe.  If you are into modern art, you will love this.  I don't think my parents will be into the bare concrete wall design, but my husband and I liked it. It's very modern and cool.   Don't think because they utilize the bare concrete walls, their built out is cheap.  The building material and craftsmanship are at high quality. It's actually much better than some Boutique hotel that tried to be posh but cutting corners in details.  

    We arrived at the hotel around 11:30pm on a Thursday night and surprise to find the lobby / Bar is packed with people with live DJ.  Good music and very lively.   The kicker is there is a equally lively coffee/bakery/tea bar at the other end.  After our busy night, the ice green tea we ordered was a really nice finish for the night.  

    Our room was facing the Wilshire Blvd with beautiful view of downtown buildings.  Very urban.   Room is on the small side, but we are here for a night, so, it's ok.   I am glad the window can be cracked open slightly because I hated it when the windows are sealed.  You do hear the busy street and the Lobby party that was going on.   It didn't bother us because we did live in NY for awhile. So, it's part of being in the city.

    Overall, it's a great hotel for us.  I guess it's more in the eye of the beholder.

    We had an awesome experience at the Line! Stayed here for a weekend staycation and let me tell you-- you really do feel like you're out of LA. Maybe it's the ktown feel. Awesome food at Pot. The pool has a really great vibe with funky music playing and it isn't too crowded either. The view from the room is amazing! The bar plays great music but the bar service is pretty slow. Drinks aren't bad but they're not great either. This place gets rowdy! You can hear the music from the third floor going up the elevator. But my boyfriend and I were down to party so it didn't bother us. Walking distance to many great restaurants and shops. Hotel also has free bike rentals but most of the bikes are gone by noon. Would love to stay here again!

    Awesome hotel a bit expensive! But it was great very upscale. The room was sweet electric blackout drapes for a wall length window. The bar downstairs also turned out to be quite a surprise. We thought it was just and over priced dull hotel bar but turns out they really know how to party at The Line. It was a welcome surprise.

    Don't really know K-town that well or even LA. But Roy Choi has helped create a pretty cool spot here. On a Saturday night the bar was packed and the DJ was really good. If you look up in the ceiling above the bar they sell pregnancy tests. Also the restaurant "Pot" smells really freakin good. The bakery inside has delicious cookies. Worth a visit.

Not to mention that the staff was super nice.

    From the moment we arrive we were greeted by very friendly valet folks, we walked into the hotel and were very impressed. The lobby/lounge area was very active with a DJ playing music. The bar and cafe had people flowing through it and mingling. Front desk was super amazing to is and so friendly...we were given a quick but thorough welcome blip and were given out keyless card. We booked on the top floor which is the 12th floor, hallway was already very cute, so naturally walking into the room I was so happy to see the cute and modern hip details. The contrite walls give it a cool feel and it has all the amenities you can possibly think of, mini bar, all the goodies. The back end of the beds have little media stations attached to them so it's very convenient to plug in USB/HDMI cables and all that good stuff. The shades are automatic and you can either just bring down the sheer curtain or completely black it out. Great room and a wonderful hotel and staff all together. We will definitely be returning!!! Oh and the room is so clean!!!

    I absolutely loved this hotel! It still is in the works, but so far I am a huge fan. The lobby is stunning , the rooms are unique and artistic, the staff is friendly and I fell in love with towels they were super soft!!!

    The location is key to this hotel, amazing food and cool bars are walking distance from it. Our room had the Hollywood Hills view and for a moment there I completely forgot I was in Koreatown. I can't wait for the restaurant, bar and pool deck to open!! This place is a game changer for me!!

    The Line Hotel is a hip, chic place, and also a hip, chic place to get a good night's sleep. That is, if POT's spicy bowls don't have you dreaming wild all night.

    I guess you have already heard that from reading all the cool LA things you should be reading as a cool LA Urbanite. But seriously, it's a cool hotel. Perfect for a staycation, if you townies think you don't have a reason to stay at a hotel in your own city. The Line makes you fall in love in love with Los Angeles.

    Heads up: the only car-parking option is to valet at $32/night, so if you are indeed a local, you might just want to ride your bike or take the metra: the Wilshire/Normandie station is literally across the street.

    Bike rental (complete with chic saddle bags) is free with a  room # for four hours-- with maps and advice and helmet to boot, and if you want to take your DSLR on a  longer-than-four-hour tour, they claim they're open to negotiation.

    Rooms are small but on-point: super good city or Hollywood Hills views, mini bar, clean bathrooms, new flatscreens with cable, kickass WiFi (as fast and free and as far-ranging throughout the building as Seoul's itself) room service/menu (kimbap and French fries? Waffles and burgers? Yes, please!), concrete walls and local minimalist, hipster decor (perfect for photo shoots), accessibility to electronics so you can hook up your own computer, player, etc. and run it through the TV if you're too good for the cable. Alarm clocks are only iphone 4 compatible--bit of a bummer, there, but pretty typical. Beds are comfortable and if you're in any sort of extended-stay situation there's an awesome desk facing the floor-to-ceiling views. I could write a novel here, if I could afford it. Guess this review will have to do.

    One of the best, surprisingly little things about the room is the "[Here]" magazine: a book thick with stories of local culture, restaurants, bars, people, architecture...it simply oozes with love for Los Angeles and most emphatically the Koreatown area where The Line resides. It's actually quite exciting and inspirational and has me not only wanting to try every joint recommended, but also start one of my own and become one of the burgeoning LA citizens.

    The lobby boasts a café where a simply gorgeous Lamill coffee is $2 but they also serve breakfast pizzas and habanero mochas. The Valet guys come in early for discount espressos to start their day, Korean businessmen come in for afternoon coffee and business chats, Asiana airline attendants in full uniform grab a mochi cake on their way to corporate, across the street.

    The POOL, now there's a hotel pool to boast about. After having stayed in too many hotels with baby-wading pools (for girls who don't want to get their hair wet) or freezing-cold ice pits or overrun-with-children, this 4-9.5 feet mini-lap pool is cool enough during the hottest hours and warm enough to push the closing-time limits of 7pm. It's no Olympic pool, but it's definitely comfortable enough for a weekday crowd. The roof is breezy and the chairs are comfortable and well-attended to by attentive pool staff. There's complimentary magazines, sunscreen, cucumber water, the works. Bask to the unusually inspirational pool music that blessedly excludes the standard top 40 hits--I heard a lot of Flume, some Myron & E. Bask to the smells of POT and the commissary--it's not every day you get whisps of gourmet galbi and fried rice wafting around your water aerobics. It's wheelchair-accessible, and it's right outside the newly-opened Commissary. Don't be misled--this Roy Choi-curated greenhouse isn't a casual coffee commissary, and it doesn't open until 5p. But it offers an even more intriguing array of cocktails than the lobby bar does, and an equally fascinating pictorial menu of fresh, simple foods prepared in unique styles with unqiue sauces. It's complex in its simplicity so don't make it complicated: just pick your vegetable, point to the picture, and the staff will do the rest.

    Staff, by the way, is pretty friendly and very accommodating. When we had a few complaints about miscommunicated policies, they always played the customer is right and rectified the situations, which I will always appreciate.

    And then, of course, POT, the café, the POT Lobby Bar, and Pocketo boutique-and-gifts just downstairs, and the whole Roy-Choi world of Koreatown/Latinoland/East LA just around the corner. There's more than one reason to stay at The Line.

    I stayed at the Line Hotel Last week between July 14-21st. The staff at the hotel was very friendly. The place is very clean. The rooms are a bit small but I was impressed with how clean and organized everything was. It's close to the subway on Wilshire boulevard. It's very easy to take the bus as well. You definitely want to buy a tap card if you plan on using public transpiration. If you are driving there, finding parking will not be easy. I used public transpiration and UBER to get around. The hotel's pool is very nice and everyone I encountered from the hotel staff was nice and helpful. I am def planning on staying there again every time I visit LA. The wifi is not very strong/reliable in the rooms due to some construction but most of the time it worked out ok. That's it. Pretty sure you'll be comfy staying here.

    One of the coolest stays I've been to! Location is great, the staff was super helpful and the building itself is so rad! I recently have been checking out these boutique hotels and the Line has to be on my top list! Once you walk into the room, you're greeted by a beautiful view of Los Angles-I was on the 11th floor. The bed is incredibly comfortable, the decor is simple but fresh and the walls are thick- so it's very quiet and peaceful. I didn't get a chance to check out their restaurant but I ordered room service and had the Hawaiian lunch plate which was delicious. I'm definitely booking at the Line next time I'm in town! Woot!

    We stayed at the Line because of the location; however beware of a few things!#1: the wifi does not work in the rooms (goes out after a few minutes) and you have to go down to the lobby to get a steady connection. Even the staff upon check in warned us that "it was spotty".  #2: the room was very noisy from the street traffic below and loud music from the lobby at night. The room itself was very nice in function/design and the staff were kind and helpful.  At checkout, I caught that they had billed me for an extra night so check your bill before you pay it. Parking was pretty steep at $32+.

    Casual fun five bar in the city with street parking on Wilshire.  A dj that plays top 40 from current hits to old school rap with a small 'dance' floor.  The only drawback is that they don't have waiters so you have to order at the bar with a crazy long line but the crowd is young and friendly with tons of eye candy!!!

    We had absolutely no knowledge of this hotel before taking a chance and booking a room.  What a find!  We loved the place from the moment we turned our car over to the valet.  They have bicycles for guests to use, and I was disappointed that we didn't have an opportunity to take a ride!  Everyone in the lobby was friendly and helpful and we got checked in quickly.  The edgy, urban décor was very creative, although the hallways were kind of tunnel-like (but what hotel hallways are not?).  The room was very tiny but packed with modern, Ikea-like furniture.  Plenty of space to lounge, even a desk with built-in charging station.  Our room faced the Hollywood Hills, and we happened to be there on a glorious day with no smog.  Remote controlled shades and black-out drapes made it easy to sleep in after a late night.  Mini-bar with lots of goodies, not too pricey.
    The Commissary restaurant on the 2nd floor rooftop, adjacent to the pool, is a large greenhouse, filled with plants.  Great atmosphere, but be prepared to wait a bit to be tended to once you are seated.  Once you finally do get a server to stop by, the food and drinks are creative and delicious.  Chef Roy Choi has made a very eclectic menu  with a lot of attention to "foodie" details.  The club sandwich had one simple twist from others--he uses basil instead of lettuce...what a great change of taste!!
    The entire property is smoke-free, although there is always somebody who thinks that rule doesn't apply to them, so we had to ask that a smoker be reminded while we enjoyed breakfast out on the deck.
    The bar in the lobby (The Pot Bar) was great; it is adjacent to "The Pot" restaurant which serves Korean fare.  We didn't try it since I'm allergic to shellfish and not a fan of things like "Stinky Kymchi" or "Spicy Dried Squid", but I'm sure if you do like those things, they would have been prepared with the same creativity as the food in The Commissary.  Both restaurants were very busy.
    Highly recommend this hotel and the restaurants and bar!  We will definitely go back!!

    This is our new home in Los Angeles.

    We had an amazing time at this wonderful hotel.  From the moment we pulled up in our car, the valet guys, the bellman,  the front desk staff - all were super warm, professional and really made us feel like family.  I'm frankly not used to that kind of behavior in Los Angeles.  

    They were extremely sweet to my newborn as well.   Uncle Rich introduced her to the staff (including the house keeping staff - who were so sweet and professional).  

    Upon checking in - there were 2 bottles of sparking water, some pastries from the awesome bakery downstairs and a nice note.  

    Our rooms were very comfortable and our view was amazing.   The bed was so plush, modern and comfy.  You just wanna sink in.  The auto sheer / black out shades were perfect.

    Bathroom very well-kept and clean.

    This place is such a hidden gem in this massive City of Angeles.  

    I wish I lived here.

    The Line Hotel has some nice features but is ultimately disappointing.

    I do note that this is still a work in progress. The rooms have been renovated, and are absolutely great - hip, modern and comfortable. However, the accompanying infrastructure for taking care of hotel guests is sadly still lacking.

    There is no bar or restaurant in this hotel. Word is they are still in work and are coming "soon." Given the slim pickings of other bars and restaurants in walking distance, this makes food and libations a problem.

    The hotel tries to make up for this by providing a free (and to their credit, quite tasty) continental breakfast in he lobby every day, and have limited cocktail service in the evenings...but it's not integrated with the hotel, purchases can't be charged to your room.

    And about those room charges...upon check-in, the Line insists on adding a $150 charge per night to your credit card for "incidentals." The unused portion is refunded on check-out, but given that there are no incidentals available besides the $35 valet parking and the contents of the minibar, this is quite puzzling. Management insists this is a "common practice," but I have stayed at a lot of hotels and have never encountered this curious requirement. For our friends who were working off a debit card, this tied up several hundred dollars of their bank balance and created quite a problem.

    The individual employees are friendly and helpful, but seem unaided by any coherent organizational system. And there's a lack of basic hotel-guest amenities like sewing kits...one of our friends who was getting married had a tear in his trouser seam, and nobody could come up with needle and thread to help him out. This is basic Hostelry 101 stuff, and The Line fails epically.

    So...B+ for effort, but the advice is to give them a year to finish setting themselves up. Not ready for prime time.

    This just wasn't my kind of place. Concrete walls and the bed in the middle of the room, I felt like I was in a basement. The chairs in the room were not comfortable and my air conditioner was leaking, which I called the front desk about and no one came. No makeup mirror in the bathroom, which has a tilted mirror, making it hard to do your makeup.
    Seemed more like a young guy hang out, which might be who they are trying to attract. Staff really friendly, and the food was good, which is why I gave it three stars.

    We found the Line Hotel on line at various sites in early January just after they opened the doors. so we knew we were laying footprints in new cement.
    Honestly, they couldn't be any cool & hip in the most central location for first time visit to LA.. this was our honeymoon suite, our guests stayed as well, and the staff really went the extra mile whenever they could.
    they matched our price from a discount site, and seriously took good care of us. If you are a Boutique Hotel fan, you should consider this one. Location alone, but merited by service. We cant wait ti they get the full service restaurants up and running..

    Decided to get away for the weekend. The hotel is nestled in Koreatown in the middle of amazing tofu houses and karaoke bars. We had amazing floor to ceiling views of the city. The decor was super trendy and the bed was super comfy. Amazing hospitality and service. Pot bar is really good. Best fuzzy navel and good soju. Lots of fun but also chill and relaxing. The breakfast that is included is really yummy. Croissants with lox and glass bottles of parfait with fresh berries. Best Staycation EVER!

    I am in awe if the architecture if this hotel. The room was amazing. Contemporary, minimal, hint of Asia or was it the desert? Very zen with crystal, rocks, books to read and art. The view was the best I've ever had in La. The whole of La and Hollywood looking to the hills with Griffith Park Observatory at the far end. So make sure you ask for a Hollywood view room. If you like modern art you'll love this hotel. It's new so the pool area wasn't really at its peak yet but from what I heard it will be spectacular. An LA gem. I'll be back.

    It's a start! A great start, part of being "friends and family" and seeing the hotel before the public is knowing there will be some kinks, and its a training phase.  

    Well done Sydell Group, I cannot wait to see the amazing things to come here at this hotel, Pot, Roi Choi, The Houston Brothers with The Speek.... oh this is going to be great!

    Walking distance to everything! Food, metro, coffee, bars, museums and free rental bikes!

    The design is definitely a conversation piece and the floor to ceiling windows are stunning in the rooms.  Great views, friendly staff, you will be seeing more of me!

    The hotel is cool and clean. BUT the service is extremely bad! We got one room in third floor the first night but I found the air conditioning does not work. I ask them to fix but they cannot. Thus, I changed to another room at midnight. The second day morning, I worry they will forget to clean my room so I remind them at morning. HOWEVER, after I arrive home at night, I found nobody clean the room!!!

I was there for work, I attended a forum and lunch was catered by the hotel and let me tell you it was yummy! the only draw back is that the hotel was undergoing some fire alarm testing which disrupted our forum each day! other than that its a great hotel and the restaurant is great as well. I will def be back.

    This is the type of place that treats you about as well as how nice your car is. My 3 friends and I went our and spent about $500+ between their restaurant and bar and were still treated like shit.

    The biggest problem was with the valet on 9/5/14 when we visited. I think the problem is that we came in a non beamer. They made us stand outside for 45 minutes as all of the nicer cars were brought forward first. Literally about 15 people got their cars  before us. It was insulting and embarrassing.

    Long story short, if  you are planning on spending money here and not rolling up in a bmw  DON'T COME HERE you'll be treated like shit.

    High hopes coming in to a beautiful boutique hotel that took risks with the concrete walls.  The Valet staff is awesome!  So friendly and efficient, would not have changed a thing about them.  The check in (Thu) experience  was good, we happen to get one of the managers Nicole.  As soon as we got to the room, there were long black hairs stuck in to the towels and also in the shower.  Gross!  We were in and out at check in so we just let that go, put all the towels on the floor and figured we would make sure housekeeping came the next day (Fri) and swapped the towels.  We typically don't use housekeeping at all and will just straighten out our own bed and order more towels, we don't like people in our room when we aren't there.  In this case the room was in poor enough condition that it was necessary and we were on a time crunch on arrival day and the next day, no time do this ourselves this time.

    When we got ready to check out on Sunday morning, I noticed my Sapphire ring that was on the organizing tray in the bathroom was GONE!  We opened a case with security and they basically said don't call us, we will call you.  I was in tears when we were checking out so a manager (Nicole again) came and spoke with me and gave me her contact information to follow up.  We will see if anything even happens.  There are no safes in the room or if there is we did not see it or where not shown it when we were taken to our room.  Also had to find the control panel for the blinds ourselves as well.

    FAIL!

    First time visiting- amazing vibe....branding is fresh youthful and evocative of NYC street culture...had coffee and dessert from the F bar which was delicious. The lobby bar was on fire with tons of people (non pretentious mix of hipsters) and the music was legit (90s hip hop) through the various locations of the hotel ... Got a tour of the rooms which significantly only seemed to differ based on bathroom size...both options viewed were uniquely decorated and had beautiful city views...Will definitely revisit soon.

    We went to this Hotel yesterday after the theater. when we walked into the they had tables that were dirty and no one had cleaned them.  We sat outside. Also I have to say I had read good reviews regarding this place.  We ordered a bottle of wine and it came and when we wanted more we had to get up and go get the waiter to pour us some.  Also she just put the bottle on the table without even putting it on ice to stay chilled.  We ordered ALOT of food.  It was expensive and When I got home I was sick.  I don't see the big deal about this place.  Would NEVER go back

    2nd time staying here! On our way up from San Diego. Called in and Brendan who answered the phone at the front desk assisted us with our request to check in early. Brendan was pleasant and delivered the great customer service we experienced the first time we stayed here back in February 2014. We stumbled across The Line on the app "Hotel tonight" when we needed a place to stay after Demi Lovato's and 5TH Harmomy concert. This hotel is definitely different than most hotels we are use to staying at (Marriott, Hyatt, Hilton)....very botiquish and modern. The presentation of their food is an experience too! We are excited to experience the Line hotel more as we are staying 2 nights...check our the pool, the Commissary looks hip dining in what looks like a greenhouse...and I learned the Line has the best cookies in all of LA and a hot spot to people watch at the bar. Looking forward to our second stay this weekend.

    What an interesting hotel. It opened recently and brings some great energy to K town. There's a lot of street parking in the evening. The lobby bar's happening and they serve beer, coffee and sweets at the counter near the entrance. It's great people watching. I also checked out the rooms. The suite's like staying in a nice sized one bedroom apartment. There's interesting modern furniture with an Asian feel and the view was gorgeous. The bath tub's a huge, stand alone, in an oval shape. It feels unique.

    I'm not sure where to start with this place and all the hype surrounding it. I gave it a few tries with multiple people and none of us would ever comeback out of 7 people. The only thing that was note worthy was the glass house design and plant life of Commissary. We would have eaten there but when approaching the 3 employees socializing at the host stand and asking for a table in barely half full restaurant they said they didn't know if one was available an that they had to look for the host. They couldn't find the host very quickly or take it upon themselves to offer service so we decided upon a drink at the bar and then we'd leave. The bar became a whole other monster with our bartender having zero product knowledge but did give us a cocktail menu or 2 menus for us to review. We then order one each of their specialty cocktail only to be told that the first one was actually out of season now an they were out of the Planters Punch. Wait...you just gave me the menu to look at that had no drinks available on it. Why waste our time? The one guy that seemed like the only person in the place that had any clue tried his best, knew his stuff and answered every question that the other one didn't know. He seemed generally frustrated by the lack organization of the place and by one of us in the party I'm sure because we did have some questions and we all were pretty frustrated by the entire place by then. I'm all for craft cocktails but if I order a bourbon, rye, whiskey or tequila neat do not put it in a chilled glass. Spirit temperature and changing it changes the flavor drastically and I did not ask for it chilled or on the rocks. Seems to be bar 101 if you're in the bar game.
    The elevators looked to be designed as if someone vomited all over the place, the black plastic bottle installation behind the front desk is embarrassing, your 10 years late to the Shepard Fairey party but more like 15 if you were the Ace Hotel. Clearly trying to be somewhere in between Ace and the Standard but felt like a Ramada Inn with high ceilings. Like I said earlier, Commissary looks very nice and felt good but unfortunately for us they weren't taking money from people that night. I did like the car port area where you valet but that was about it. No one will be back but now we know.

    I stayed here Saturday night, and although the stay was overall positive, there was a couple issues that left a bad taste in my mouth.

    They offer a free breakfast, as do many hotels. This breakfast was very lackluster. The spread was a selection of pastries, parfait, juice, and coffee. Although the pastries were tasty, I was craving a hot breakfast, pancakes, eggs, sausage... From their offerings, I was looking forward to one item and that was the parfait. I just missed the last one available when I got there. When the manager came around to ask how everything was, I mentioned the parfait and he left to get me one. He came back to tell me that he had run out and I was not able to get one. That was fine that they ran out, but 30 minutes later as I was trying to get a bike rental, I noticed that there were more parfaits available :(

    They have bikes you can borrow to ride around K-Town. After breakfast, we wanted to borrow said bikes and go for a ride. One of the guys there grabbed the binder for bikes and there were no blank waivers in the book. He told us to wait while he got more and it turned out to take over half an hour of waiting. This really put us off and when we finally did get our bikes we felt rushed that we had to go back to make check out.

    Also, the $32 overnight car fee seems expensive. I don't know if it is competitive with other overnight services in the area, but having to pay for a hotel room AND pay for parking is something that irritates me. A lot.

    this place is hella laaaaame! I'll give it an extra star since the venue itself isn't bad. it's dare I say, kind of chic? always heard of this place and have been trying to avoid it until a friend's birthday came up. too crowded, too stuffy, too many asians. there are sooo many other fun places to hang out in koreatown. the drinks are overpriced and tastes like it barely has any alcohol in it, the worst. and idk why this makes me cringe, but NO ONE dances on the dance floor. it's just weird. felt like i was in high school all over again. went home sober and disappointed.

    The Hollywood hills view is gorgeous. Waking up to that each morning of my stay and coming back to it at night was delightful. The pool area is great. There's a ping pong table around the corner, which we didn't discover until check-out time....oops. I found the service (concierge, waitstaff at the pool, valet) to be super attentive and friendly.

    If you're staying here on a weekend, I'd recommend going for a room on a higher floor, as the lobby gets pretty packed and loud on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Yikes! I'll start off my mentioning that this is a review for the "lobby party" that goes down on a Sat. night. I had heard the name before...knew the location....but little did I know it would be the mess it was.  I'm at fault here for not reading up on this place prior. I heard the name "Line Hotel"and I imagined a rooftop or at least a lounge located indoors with a private entrance...maybe an outdoor pool area...I mean basically just anything than what it was! The "entrance" is basically right off Wilshire Blvd., and you literally walk straight into the "outdoor patio" that reminds you of trying to get a drink at Dodger stadium....literally! You got your messy lines....messy people...cheap overpriced beer....poorly mixed well drinks....plastic cups galore...guys wearing baseball caps...absolutely disgusting! The indoors was another story. This is where the real "party" takes place. The lobby area of this hotel is apparently transformed into a club/lounge. This should never be allowed...hotel lobbies are not clubs/lounges....this doesn't even fly with places like the W or the Roosevelt. Sure you can grab a seat and a drink perhaps....but that should be it. Walking through glass doors straight into a crowd of people dancing on a rug or granite tile isn't chic or cool. There appears to be seating too....maybe booths....maybe a dance floor next to the DJ. Honestly I don't really know....I do have bad eyes....and I was not trying to get any closer to get a better view of the mess in there. I was afraid to really step inside..I never even went to the restroom. I stood by the cafe (which did look decent.) I stood there and saw girls dancing...spilling drinks....guys fighting....and pushing....all while some of the worst possible music was playing. I don't like hip hop or top 40s...so I guess if you like this type of music...you may disagree with me. I just don't get why the worst of the 90s is a genre now. I watched as even hotel staff looked at the crowd in disgust.  There was a nice black rope that kept the mess from going anywhere near the elevators that are designated for hotel guests. I thought to myself "who stays here and why?" I've seen the pics and the rooms do look nice...I still think it's weird though. Well in the end...I finished my $9 beer and called an uber and headed back to Hollywood with my friends. I will definitely not be visiting Ktown again.  I get it...people are looking for new spots...venturing out of their "norm"...but this was flat out scary....I rather go to downtown and that's saying a lot!!

    Very unique hotel with a modern look and excellent service.  I made a reservation on an iphone app and it took them a little bit to set it up so they paid for the 35$ parking.

    The rooms are really cool and have floor to ceiling windows that you can look out of.  I definitely recommend that you stay here.

    We had reservations at another hotel who claimed to be "boutique"....if "boutique" means "smelly-awful-location-terrible-amenities" then the description fits.  
    The Line Hotel saved our little mini vacation, and when we pulled up to the sleek and modern driveway, an instant calm came over all of us.  As the valet took our keys and the bell hop (is there a better name these days??) came and got our bags, we were thrilled that the lobby was clean and friendly, with all kinds of chic things to see.  The café staff was awesome, check in was a breeze, and everything looks just uber cool and contemporary.  

    Ordered room service and it comes in little stainless steel pots wrapped in bags, perfect for eating in bed.  The rooms were small, yes, but the technology and views trump any complaint I would make - plus, we are in L. A....you aren't supposed to spend your days in the room!   I honestly haven't slept that soundly in a long time...partly in fact to the Bluetooth radio they have built right into the bed that we hooked our ipods up to for blissful sleep.

    Pool time was fantastic, and meeting the manager of the restaurants below as he was directing the workers who were diligently working on the new garden restaurant was an added bonus.  We were even given the cord to hook up our own ipod music as we lounged by the pool...and no, there isn't poolside service, but the cool girl attendant offered to get us ice, towels, and even blew up a dolphin for the pool she found in the back.  

    Just awesome to be surrounded by friendly, hip people.  I will make it a point to stay here again, as I am dying to try this new garden restaurant, and I loved pushing a button in the morning and waking up to the blackout curtains slowly revealing such awesome views of a city I adore.  

    Great job, The Line Hotel staff!!  You have a fan for life.

    Definitely coming back to try the restaurant on the pool level. They basically built a greenhouse on a city rooftop and turned it into a hip, modern restaurant with a refreshingly different ambiance. You're surrounded by panes of retro greenhouse glass and lush greenery, and they have long communal tables (and I saw regular tables) and an inspired menu focusing on fresh grilled veggies and meats. Vibrant and popular but you can easily get a lunch table mid-week. Felt like a cool respite in the middle of hot downtown LA, and the staff was refreshingly without attitude. Not sure why they didn't call it The Greenhouse??

    I tried the lobby cafe - great coffee, pastries and savories and super friendly, warm staff in a hip atmosphere, and checked out the rooms (boutique-y and sleek, well-thought out use of space, big windows). The Line would be great for anyone wanting a classy, hip, close to downtown hotel. Rooms on the 7th floor and up have the best views of the Hollywood sign and hills.

    I spent 5 nights at the Line hotel and it could not have been more perfect. As soon as my boyfriend and I arrived we were greeted by super friendly staff and checked in right away. We mentioned how it was our first time to ever visit LA and staff/front desk seemed super eager to tell us about all the places and things we should do during our stay. When we went up to our room the view was everything and more than what we expected (hollywood hills view on 9th fl) The rooms are a super nice size, the bathroom so roomy!  The shower curtain, though, made me soak the floor after every shower. :X
    The decor and furniture was so nice and the bed super comfy. I even utilized the gym on the 4th floor. The food from the cafe was super tasty. I did not get a chance to eat at Pot though...next time! and I hope to be able to visit when the pool is finished. I can go on and on about this place..

    OH! and conveniently located across the street from the purple line and on busy Wilshire blvd with lots of busses that can get you all over LA!

    Found this hotel on the Hotel Tonight App for $165 + taxes =~$199

    So basically this hotel is in the heart of Ktown, and if you are planning to go out in the downtown area or Ktown bar hopping, this would be a very convenient location. However if you are a tourist from outside the LA area, I don't know if it would really provide the "LA" experience. Definitely influenced by the Korean American culture, they have a new restaurant opening soon by celebrity chef Roy Choi (yogi truck founder). Walking distance to BCD tofu house, etc.

    We were offered a $20 upgrade for the top floor facing North LA (hollywood sign etc) and was told the sound level would be much lower. When we walked into the lobby, music was blaring from the bar so we decided it might be worth it. The rooms are VERY small, they basically used as little resources as possible to create a "modern" look, it's almost the vibe of palm springs living. However our room was very clean and perfect for a two person stay. I have to say it was VERY quiet for a hotel room and we were not disturbed at all during our night's stay. Usually you can hear people walking and shutting doors, but we were not bothered.

    Drinks at the bar downstairs are priced as it would be in a bar in hollywood ($10-15). They also do not carry any redbull. The bartenders need to work on their customer service, the place was not even crowded and they don't even bother to look up and greet you when you are obviously waiting for a drink. They have a drink menu that looks like they are trying to be a bar that provides talent from mixologists, if that is the case, they need to work on the experience they provide for their patrons.

    The valet service takes some time, I would recommend calling from the room if possible.

    This is definitely not a family friendly hotel, it is a good place to stay with a significant other or one other friend. I would definitely be back if the rate is decent.

    I stayed at The Line this past weekend, 9/12-9/14. The staff was very nice and accommodating. I arrived later on the 12 and was offered a discount upgrade to a Hollywood hills room vs a city view. Initially when Hannah offered it I declined, mostly because I'm a city girl, but she insisted and comped the upgrade because it was a Friday and she didn't want the noise at the bar to bother me.
    I loved my room, spacious for what it was, minimal, and a great view.
    The only issue was I had a leak on my last day. The ac system, which is in the doorway above where my mini bar and bathroom door is had a puddle of water. It was inconvenient to walk around it, but I didn't even call about the issues.
    The cafe had great food and wanted to order delivery, but the lack of descriptions next to the food choices made me decide against ordering, especially because I'm paying a $3 delivery fee and 18% additional, I didn't want to order something and it be a waste. Ultimately I would stay here again, just hope I don't get another leak.

    Stayed here for 2 nights for work. Super trendy and hipster. I would recommend it.

    Pro:
    Great rooms - pretty quiet. Large comfortable bed. Beautiful windows, wall to wall - floor to floor.
    Food is great. Just the simple eggs and hash browns were the best I have had in a long time.
    Great Korean BBQ restaurant the Pot downstairs in lobby.

    Could improve:
    The air conditioner did not work so well in the room. I would keep turning it down and it was still warm to sleep with.
    Lobby is a little loud if you need to work.

    Found out about this place from Hotel Tonight. My husband got a great deal on our way home from our anniversary trip. It was a fantastic way to end the trip. We arrived on a Saturday night and the club was loud. The front desk was super helpful and got us a room on an upper level. Couldn't hear the club at all.

    We were required to pay for valet parking ($20) which I guess is just part of staying at a hotel in LA. It was the only bummer.

    The rooms were very hip, cozy and very thoughtfully decorated. The walls are all smooth sanded concrete, but it doesn't feel like a prison. It was an interesting design choice. Bed was super comfortable and was right in front of a giant bay window with a gorgeous view of the city. Room service was excellent. We ordered the milk and cookies. Yum! Wish we could have stayed longer to try out the bike service and the pool.

    I really liked the decor and ambiance. Although, I don't know how I feel about the center decorations at each table, which is a milk gallon container that's cut in half and filled with some other decorations. It's a cool spot to chill with a date or some friends if you go at the right times. If you come after 10:00 pm on Friday or Saturday nights, it'll get crowded really quick and it'll take 30+ minutes to get a drink because there is only one bar.

    I was here for an event but this review is pretty applicable for everything but the living experience at the hotel.

    FIRST IMPRESSIONS: The hotel is relatively new, looks classy and high end given the number of sports cars rolling through the valet line. Too bad the valet service is not very attentive. The whole hotel (but especially the lobby area) is like modern world meets Asian invasion (although much less Asian than a place like Hakkasan). The only thing that threw me off is the little cafe connected to the lobby and the outdoor seating/smoking area because it looks more cute, prim and proper, and doesn't quite fit in with the lounge feel in the rest of the lobby.

    EXPLORING: I think it's a full bar, bartenders are good looking and well dressed (thumbs up for the chambray shirts + ties), nice variety of drinks offered at a very jacked up price (drinks are strong though). Pool/garden area on the 2nd floor is also Asian/modern, pool is very small (but clean). I think there's a greenhouse next to the pool as well. There's somewhat of a view from the 2nd floor but let me just tell you, staring at the Asiana airlines building and looking down at some streets is not my idea of a great view especially when you can go to any of the rooftop bars in DTLA.

    VERDICT: It appears to me that the bar is where the party is at. Crowd is young (like late 20s-30s) and well dressed and presents nicely. They dim the lights and turn up the music as the night progresses but by the time that happens, I'm pretty much bored out of my mind. I guess it's not a bad place to just kick it with some friends. It has lots of seats/tables but the set up of the lobby doesn't really make for an interactive crowd. But at the end of the day I must ask myself, why would I come here when I can just hit up a soju bar or go to EMC around the corner?

    Interesting experience, not sure if I'd return (unless maybe if Joe Bartender makes my white Russian again).

    My friends and I frequent the bar a lot so one night after hitting up a club we decided to staycation here for my birthday. The rooms are pretty nice and if you can you should definitely get the hollywood hills view because it's so SO pretty in the morning. We were on the 7th floor but I'm sure if you were up higher it would've been a prettier view because we could kind of see into the next building over.

    The rooms super nice, though a bit smaller than the pictures on the website make it seem. I'm not sure if it were because of the event going on downstairs on the 2nd floor, but we could hear the festivities and all the chatter. I think the best part was the room service though- fairly fast and portions were a good size IMO. We got the chorizo and eggs and also the spam and eggs. I probably inhaled the spam and eggs. So good. The little cafe thing downstairs also is yummy. I also tried the cookies, iced coffee, and that breakfast pizza thing. The cafe workers were super nice, too. The pool area is really cute, too.

    Not my favorite bar/lounge, but it's pretty chill. I feel like it's a little expensive and they do include tip in your total so beware. I didn't valet because my friend told me their valet $ is something ridiculous; find street parking if you can.

    We stayed there for one Saturday night. I absolutely loved the artistic decor and view from the room. Unfortunately we didn't partake in any of the food or drink offered at the restaurant or bar but it seemed to have a nice, laid back vibe day and night.
    The only issue I had was parking. We were forced to pay an extra $35 for overnight parking. This wasn't mentioned on any website that I saw so came as a surprise upon arrival! This might not have irked me so much if the valet was at all organized or quick. We found ourselves waiting far too long on every occasion we tried to get our car and were asked over and over what kind of car it was or what the key looks like, etc.

    Bottom line, get the parking/valet situation fixed and it would have been a perfect nights stay!

    My partner and I had to get a hotel for the night while our building was tented for termites. I found the Line Hotel on Hotwire as a 4 star hotel for a good price close by.

    Mind you we were literally just checking in at 11:30pm to sleep for 6/7 hours and then off to the airport to leave in the morning.

    When we arrived the front desk had no record of my confirmed reservation. I showed them my confirmation email and there was nothing they could do to locate it in their system. They said they had no direct line with Hotwire so they couldn't call either. We're left standing at the counter staring at the staff as they click away on their computers to no avail.

    When we're about to just cancel the room and find another place (this is LA after all do there's no shortage of good hotels).. Someone walks out of a back room with a paper that shows my reservation. They confirm a non-smoking Kingsize bed room and we wait another 5 minutes (maybe 30 total since we arrived) before they give is a key to a room on the 9th floor.  Surprise, it's a room with two double beds!  Back down to the Lobby. Another few minutes as there's other guests in line now (this is Tuesday night at midnight and hardly a time when a line should be backed up to check in). Back up the elevator again now to the 8th floor.

    Ok, so we finally have a room. Great. The room is interesting and modern in a good way. We've made it past the difficult part and finally get to lay down. The room and it's attributes are commendable. Comfortable beds, pleasant restroom/shower, etc. We didn't have any time to enjoy any hotel amenities outside of the room, so no comment on any of that.

    Parking was definitely a bit ridiculous. $32 for overnight parking. Since we were leaving early I parked at a meter on the street exactly 19ft from the $32 parking and it was free until 8am. We left at 7:30am and avoided the excessive parking fees.

    All in all, the physical hotel & room were very nice and in Line with a 4-star hotel. Perhaps some more training and effort from management to streamline the reservation/checkin procedure and this visit could've been significantly improved. Still parking was costly, but wouldn't have made for a general poor experience.  

    Ps, there's some plastic bottles that looked like garbage spray painted black and roped off behind the front desk as "art". Seriously like milk jugs, bleach bottles, etc just painted black...  guess we know where the efficiency budget went.

    Nice room  clean, great service they checked in every night & brought fresh ice & gave us bottles of water the 1st night. Went to the pool while waiting for our room to be ready it was nice for a downtown hotel. Went to the outdoor bar a few times service there was good & the outdoor fire pits help to offset the nighttime temps. Also ate the restaurant service here was OK, though not great.While I realize that most of the guests the hotel were also there for the Rose Bowl, thus compacting the times when the elevators are in use, it just seemed that we always saw the same 2 elevators in service, even though there were 4 available. So we had waits of 5+ minutes for an elevator on many occasions.

    Came in around 9pm with no reservation.  It appeared to be busy.  Found a room on hotels tonight for a great rate but only one room available.  Tyler at the front desk was excellent, patient, and accommodating.  He found us a second room that he said would have to be cleaned and could be a wait.  One of our rooms was upgraded (spacious, separate living room, large bathroom) we barely waited 10min to get into both rooms. The gentleman who appeared to manage the valet was very kind. Impressed that I could drive a manual ;). They allowed us to leave the cars out front while we checked for available rooms. A little frustration from a different valet who didn't speak English well.  Understandable, so I'm really happy with the service we received overall. The rooms are clean and overlook the city.  The beds are comfortable.  Cement walls, modern decor, simple and easy on the eye. Robes and slippers in the closet.  Walking distance to the best Korean BBQ I've ever had as well as several other bars, restaurants, and karaoke.  Would love to stay here again!

    The Line Hotel is in a very convenient location in central LA. Literally, located right across the street of a metro stop, which made checking out all parts of LA very easy.

    The hotel was lacking in that it is obviously in its very early stages. Lots of things were missing. Room service didn't have coffee or floss, but were happy to go retrieve it for us at a low cost. The pool was not ready to be used. None of the night life stuff was set up. Couldn't order room service. The concierge kept asking for our room number so that he could slip us lists of food/bar spots to check out while we were in town.. But never did. He literally reintroduced himself to us and asked for our room number 4 times throughout our stay.

    To be fair, we were the second guests to ever check in to this hotel in 2014 (They made this very clear-- and also made us feel kind of proud!). We got a personal tour by one of the bellman around the first floor, where we were told a bar and lounge would be developed. He also kindly told us about the very cool, trendy art the surrounded the interiors. Make sure to check out the ceiling above the front desks. It's made out of blue t-shirts.

    I enjoyed the modern theme of the hotel and rooms. Almost reminds me of a mini PH Towers Westgate, Las Vegas. While the rooms were a little on the smaller size, they fit everything that they needed to: comfy chairs, coffee table, large desk, full media center, flat screen, and large bed. Everything is brand new, which we enjoyed. The water pressure in the shower was a little ehh... But hey, they gave us a gorgeous view from the 16th floor facing the city!

    I think the great thing about this hotel is their service. 5 stars for their service! Their workers are all dressed up in levi skinny jeans, cute kicks, and look-a-like members only jackets. They were very knowledgeable about different aspects of the hotel. Any time we left or arrived, there were nearly 6 valets and 4 bellmen every time to great us and ask how we were doing.

    Highlight of the trip: continental breakfast every morning. Fruits, danishes, and most importantly-- Smoked salmon, cream cheese mini croissants.. Wow. Maybe it's because I'm a sucker for mini anythings, but I really enjoyed their breakfasts. They also had happy hour in the evenings, where they served free beers, sodas, and wine.

    I look forward to coming back again when their bar and night club is set up. Oh, and their restaurant! Couldn't ask for a better location for the price.

    On a regular weekday the lobby is quiet

    but come the weekends it's like a case of Jekyll and Hyde...

    There's a lobby turn up and it's like a gigantic packed Asian party

    sooo random.

    I recommend going upstairs to the commissary. They have foosball and table tennis!

    This hotel was recently renovated. It's modern and I can see a lot of younger travelers staying here. It's in Korea Town and there are plenty of nearby restaurants.

    Our room was spacious with a king size bed, desk, floor to ceiling windows, a bar area, closet space, and arm chairs. The view from the tenth floor was definitely a plus. Housekeeping was great but I am not certain this hotel is green about their laundry.  I didn't see any signs about not changing our linens unless they were on the floor.

    The service here was shitty. This really soured our stay. Any time you try calling them at night they will, without fail, ignore your call. Even if you call from your cell phone. Our last night here the water shut off. My boyfriend tried calling and ended up going to the front desk. Apparently there was a water leak so the water had been shut off. Other than an apology, no other consolation was offered, kind of surprising for such a nice hotel.

    Parking here is valet only. Every time we would come back a flood of 2-5 people would rush to the car. I'm not sure this was necessary and it got annoying quickly.

    They offer free wi-fi but it's just about as slow as their phone answering.

    This review is for the hotel and bar. The valet staff was quick and courteous and by far the best part of our stay. The rooms are very urban and the floor to ceiling windows make up up for the small size of the room.

    Now for the bad...

    Checked into the hotel with my wife and 16 month old at about 2pm. The plan was for everyone to shower, get dressed and hit up a nice Korean spot for dinner. I was the first to shower and noticed the shower was not draining. I called the front desk and was told an engineer would be up soon. Engineer showed up about an hour later and applied some chemicals to the shower drain and tightened the handle on the bath using some type of adhesive. As he left he told us we should not used the shower for 2 hours. Due to the chemicals needing to do their magic and and the adhesive to lock into place.

    I called the front desk and asked for a new room because a 2 hour and 45 minute delay on our vacation was not cool. Was told by the front desk that I would get a call back in 10 mins....no call after 30 mins. I decided to go downstairs and talk to the desk in person. Rich, the experience manager, gave us a new room after I explained the situation. Now to the next day.

    Came home at 2am after hanging out with a buddy and found that my keys to the room didnt work. I went back to the desk and was given a new set of keys, went back up and still didnt work. I had to go back again and was told they would work this time. This set finally worked.

    After this late night dwbacle, I sought out Rich first thing in the morning to express my disappointment with the hotel thus far and was offerred a $30 credit. Rich was a nice guy but found the $30 to be too little too late.  The hotel itself was nice overall but the experiences we had in the first 24 hrs marred the first half of our trip.

    Review for the bar. Nice and hip spot but make sure to ask about drink prices before you order. I ordered 4 grey goose drinks and was handed a bill for $63.00!!!  The bartender already made the drinks so I guess I was too little too late as well.

    Review is for the bar only.

    Nice ambiance, definitely not a Ktown feel which is nice. If you're drunk and need drunchies, you can always get some delicious goodies at the bakery. Mmmm Hawaiian roll warmed up... TASTY!

    Unfortunately, when husband went and paid with his credit card, they LOST IT and couldn't find it. To make matters worse, the card had several hundred dollars worth of fraudulent charges at a karaoke place in Ktown. Completely unacceptable!

    When my friends and I arrived at the Line we were impressed with the lobby area and the friendly staff. The price was better than any other in the vicinity.

    When we got to the room we were a little surprised at the small size, especially since there were 4 of us staying together. I have to give the hotel credit though.  For the small size they really did make the most of it.

    We were given a room on the 5th floor 1st but weren't happy that we were looking directly into a room in another hotel.  The staff quickly made arrangements for our party to move to a higher floor which solved the issue.

    If I had been assessing by that alone I would have given the hotel only 3 stars but in the morning at the continental breakfast it seemed like our group got really great service. Even better than others nearby.  We are two gay couples and by the words used by the hospitality they were going out of their way to make "family" feel welcome. That earned them another star.

    A charming old grand hotel of another era. Lots of history, but desperately in need of an upgrade. Great location, but very poky & small rooms; slow, unreliable and not enough elevators; dining facilities very limited in cuisine choices and breakfast area staff were very rude & disinterested. Evening staff in dining area were very helpful & friendly. Very good Concierge. Would not return unless it undertakes a major major upgrade.

    I'm so happy to have found a home away from home here in LA! The rooms are chic and comfortable and you just can't beat having a wall of windows.  Soft beds ensured restful sleep (at least for me).  I'm generally not a fan of uber modern design, but I loved the exposed concrete walls throughout, the chairs by Knibb Design and the bathroom was beautiful. Definitely paying more for the Hollywood Hills view next time. The staff - from the valets to the front desk to random staffers wandering about - were all friendly and professional. Despite being brand new (amazing looking greenhouse restaurant, Commissary, not open yet and a club is in the works) there didn't seem to be a whole lotta kinks to iron out. this place will kick ass when fully operational. And I'm in LOVE with the menu. Didn't have a chance to eat at the restaurant, Pot, but definitely took advantage of room service (called appropriately, "Delivery"). Spam? instant ramen? yes, please. The little café downstairs was cute, and I desperately wished I wasn't gluten-free or I would've eaten up all the little buns on offer.

    I don't have a single major complaint.

    Actually, I have ONLY one complaint:  make the pool SALTWATER!!!  chlorine is yucky.

    p.s.  I always have to laugh at some of the ridiculous complaints, having just read the ones below.  crappy toiletries?  I always bring my own because I'm picky about what I put on my skin, I don't care if it's the Four Seasons.  expensive valet parking?  yeah, it's a hotel, so what, doesn't cancel out the other nice things, of which there were many.  cheap design?  it's not really my taste, but I can see the quality, and it suits the overall vibe they're going for (which I'm assuming the reviewers did not get).  definitely worth a stay.

    and the person who called it "definitely the worst hotel ever" sight unseen, based on her father's review?  I'm sorry he had a bad experience, but wow, just wow.  I'm not sure I would've booked my dad at a hipster hotel either (just sayin).  I'm giving it an extra star just for that!

    I liked the lobby decore but after that... didnt like rest of the stay nor the rooms. Its cute but has no function to my maneuver around the room. We asked for king bed and got 2 full bed and hardly any space to move around to stretch nor to do anything else besides sit on bed and watch tv. Our view was the building front of us so we didnt even bother to open the blinds. Auto blind was nice.  Price is overly priced and can hear the conversation from next room and the music from bar or club was way too noisy. Coludnt sleep till the bar closed. That really sucked. We were on 4th floor. Wtf. No noise blocking walls. I would not stay here again. Its for little all night party goers place. Not for me.

    I would not stay at this hotel again. I see same complaints from other people but management doesn't seem to care to fix. Let me tell you just small list of things on what to expect. Loud music up to 2am  that can be heard even on 6th floor room. Heater didn't work at all. Outdated bathroom. Uncomfortable TV location next to ceiling in the corner so that your neck hurts after few min. Bed has soft pad rather than high quality mattress. No coffee maker in the room. I can go on and on. Just really not worth the price we paid.

    We stumbled upon this hotel on Hotel Tonight for $135/night. Add taxes and a $35.50 parking fee, I was not very pleased.

    But when we got to the heart of downtown/Koreatown, I was not disappointed. So hip. So modern. Great music. The staff were so personable & I adored all the recycled decorations!

    Our room had a comfortable king-sized bed with a breathtaking view that included the Hollywood sign. My boyfriend made good use of their gym (4th floor) while I enjoyed their free wifi. No bathtub though, just a standing shower in a bare bathroom.

    To end our stay, all room key holders enjoy a free breakfast, full of delicious pastries, fresh fruit, coffee, tea, juices, etc. I will definitely be back next time we stay in LA. Enjoy the pictures! (:

    Last minute surprise 25th bday celebration needed to happen & one of my good friends suggested this place.

    The rooms are a bit expensive for a hotel in the ghetto, dirty streets of LA that also wreaks of cigs, but I mean... It IS Ktown. The decor is different, very modern. Because it's not the "typical" hotel look, it does seem like you're walking in a hallway that's undergoing renovations. The rooms are a bit tiny, but it worked out.

    The music they played downstairs was amazing!!!! I am such an old soul and lover of old school hip hop and R&B & their lobby lounge/bar was definitely pleasing!

    Now, I wanted to accommodate my bf's guests & decided to order a round of shots for about 20 people. I was told that if I got a bottle, it would be about 30 bucks more & of course serve more as well. Went for it. Seemed like a good deal, and we were given a table as well.

    Now, this isn't a club so the ~$270 bottle of Jameson was a regular size $25 bottle that we could easily buy at a liquor store. So heads up for anyone who decides to get "bottle service".

    My whole point of this review is that I was charged TWO $50 service fees boosting my bill to $389. Excuse me? My friend was the one who closed out my tab because I was busy taking care of the birthday boy who barely survived the night. The thing is, the receipt given to me had no breakdown.

    Luckily one of our other friends went to check up on it & was told one of the fees would be waived. I checked the next morning & both were. Woo, happy girl over here.  

    So... Good music, small rooms & sketchy issues with bills... But at least it was taken care of. Just be extra careful.

    Oh, valet is almost $40 bucks... That's a rip off too. But I guess that beats getting your car messed up by leaving it in the streets?

    Review for the "bar"/"lounge" (in the lobby)..

    If you're recently 21 and have absolutely no standards other than a place serve alcohol and play a terribly outdated playlist at high volume then you're in luck and the lobby-bar at The Line Hotel is for you.

    If not, DO NOT GO HERE.. EVER.

    The Line is an ultra-hip, transformed Best Western, into a culinary haven and chic location for a mostly Korean clientele. Roy Choi is the mastermind behind this club/lounge/food paradise! You may remember Roy Choi for starting the food truck craze with his Kogi Trucks, or seen him hanging with Anthony Bourdain.... His skill in the kitchen is awesome. We ate at Pot, the lesser of the two restaurants in the hotel, and it was terrific! I can't wait to go back and eat at the chic-Commissary that is located on the pool level in a modern greenhouse!

    At night, the downstairs lobby features a DJ and all the hot Korean males and females in the area! The guys all in suits sans ties, and the women in slintight cocktail waitresses. This is definitely the place to be seen in Koreatown at night!

    Even the room service in the morning, is not only great, but uber-cool! It is served in metal stackable containers wrapped in cloth. It looks like how I've seen Korean workers bring food to work for lunch. A cool touch!

    Now, when I list this as a 4-star, it's because it's fun, hip, and has great restaurants. The halls and rooms are bare concrete! But, the windows are floor to ceiling and our room overlooked LA with the Hollywood sign and Griffith Observatory in the distance. However, the room had everything you need and the king bed was very comfortable.

    I highly recommend The Line! We came in from Orange County for the night to see a concert at the Greek, but felt like we had really gotten away form it all!

    DISCLAIMER: I am writing this review based on the restaurant that is inside The Line Hotel.

    I was going to hang out with a big group of people and when we got there on Sunday around 2:30 pm, the chef was closing the kitchen.

    As usual, most people didn't make it on time, and didn't arrive until about 15 minutes later, which I felt was rude on behalf of the people I knew to not arrive on time, and it put pressure on us that were there to know if the Chef was going to close the kitchen or not...

    HOWEVER!
    Even through all this chaos, The Kitchen Crew and Richard (our waiter) agreed to remain open solely for us before they closed and I found that to go beyond what they needed to. Of course, some of my friends arrived way later so by that time the Kitchen had closed but for those of us who made it on time, we had the grace to eat here and it was definitely wonderful.

    The katsu chicken curry rice was amazingly delicious, and I don't even like curry, but this place made me like it. If anything, the place sold me on their seasoned fries, oh my gosh you need to get that.

    I made sure to leave a tip and thank Richard and the kitchen crew for giving us that grace to be able to eat and enjoy our time together with our friends.

    I am most definitely looking forward to staying there sometime.

    Major Thanks to Richard, and the Kitchen Crew

    So as of May 16, 2014, this is where all the cool kids hang out.  I refer to the date because cool kids are fickle and who knows where they'll be in a few months.  Look at the Ace Hotel, for Pete's sake.  Ghost town now.  

    Anyway, Line Hotel is another in a long list of boutique hotels that emphasize a robust lobby atmosphere.  The lobby area is mostly a lounge and bar with a cafe as well.  Lots of beautiful people or people trying to be beautiful milling about doing their thing.  I liked it.  I wasn't as douchey as some other hotels like this, so that was a plus.  Probably because it's in K Town?  I dunno.  Check it out, though.

    A Hotel in the heart of Ktown which seems to have gotten very popular recently for a Friday or Saturday night out.

    They changed the lobby into a bar/club and usually it can be very crowded.  Though that is usually a good thing when going out.

    TIPS:

    Expect the alcohol to be very pricey

    Complete irony that the hotel is named "Line" because that's where you will be most of the night trying to get a drink.  
    Go to the outside bar, which is usually less crowded and will still have a good selection of beer for the same price.

    if you order an "Old fashion" it is literally pre-made and poured out of a tap (obviously a big no-no)

    BE WEARY of giving cash!! I have come across two moments in my few times there where the bar tender keeps your change and doesn't let you pick how much tip you give.

    What a bunch of corrupt losers! The Line Hotel requested to have my review removed from Yelp, claiming that the comment I posted regarding the bar is not related to the hotel but to Pot Bar (that's located inside the hotel.) But if you were to check my picture receipt I posted along with this comment, you'll see it says "The Line Hotel," not "Pot Bar" so stop being a smart*** and stop requesting people's reviews to be taken down using the same scheme.
    So, they actually contacted me asking me to review my comment, saying that the machine didnt input the items correctly. Well, that's weird because Im finding out that it happened to a couple other people I know on other occasions too. I just happened to have kept one of the receipt and when I took a look at it, I then realized they totally jipped me.
    In the same email, they've also offered to buy me a drink if I was in the area again. No thanks Line Hotel. Keep on playing this game, and I will keep on posting it again and again, longer each time. I want people to be aware of this scam.
    So here it goes again: They charged me $26 for 2 grey goose drinks, but charged me $29 in the subtotal. They added tax to that and my drinks came out to $31 something. The bartender said I could pay $32 to round it up and then paid $3 in tips separately. A TOTAL SCAM! LINE HOTEL is taking advantage of their customers

    This review is for the lounge on Saturday nights. Came here last night for my friend's birthday event. That would probably be the only reason why I would ever go back... there's an outside patio where people can smoke, drink, and mingle. The lobby of the hotel is turned into a lounge. The "dance floor" is pretty small, but then again they just pushed away tables and chairs to create the space lol. The drinks are alright, prices are reasonable. The people are predominately Koreans. I would say my overall experience wasn't as great as I hoped it would be. I don't think I'll be returning back, unless if my friend celebrates her birthday at the Line Hotel again.

    We stayed at The Line Hotel last weekend. My family and I ate at POT and stayed overnight. The experience was great. NICOLE, the front desk manager, was beyond friendly and offered an assistance she could. My teens really loved POT. We sang, drank and ate like beasts. We had a nice refreshing bottle of water and sweet bun waiting for us when we entered our room, courtesy of LEEANN. It was def a sweet way to celebrate a "SWEET 16".
    JOSH BROWN and SIERRA PONTAK are also responsible for making sure we had a great time at the hotel. We will back in the very near future.

    The hotel lobby area turns into a huge lounge/dancefloor on weekends. Huge line outside with very long wait times. There are limited seats, so be prepared to stand or dance the entire time.  Unless you reserve a table. The crowd gets a bit rowdy and the bar is super crowded so it can be difficult trying to order.
    After all that's said, we had a fun time!

    Worst thing is the parking. Valet is $8.

    This place was recommended to us

    *yawn.  I wasn't impressed.  My cousin booked this place for her sister's bachelorette after one of the girls mentioned it was one of the popular new hotels in the area.  We got two rooms and spent one night here.  One night was definitely enough.  I was very disappointed when I saw the size of their standard room.  They were teeny tiny.  Their full size beds literally takes up all the space and it barely had room for you to even walk around the beds.  It felt very stuffy in the room.  The closets were the smallest I've ever seen.  The restrooms however, were okay.  I wasn't impressed with the decor either.  I don't care how people say it's "hip", it looked cheap to me.  I didn't like the unfinished look of the walls, the burlap blocks of pillow, or the bucket trashcans.  It may just be my taste, but the style to me was just another boring fad.  They told us while we grab our keys that our two rooms would not connect.  However, they did.  Lies...  We just unlocked both sides and voila, we can enter and exit as we pleased.  And did I mention the view was crap?

    The AC in the hallway weren't turn on so it was hot every time we walked out of your room or used the elevators.  Disgusting.  During our time there, we did grab drinks at their bar downstairs.  The majority of the drinks on the menu wasn't available.  The bartender was very nice though.  All staff was nice and courteous.  

    Parking was about $30 a night.

    This hotel was perfect for what we had in mind a Los Angeles experience within walking distance of the Art Institute, Contemporary, shopping, and dining. If you have a car, the doorman can suggest parking ramps that are a little less expensive than the hotel parking. The rooms are somewhat small but very clean and nice. The staff were all tremendously polite and helpful.

    I really like this hotel.  I had won a contest, and a night at the Line Hotel was a part of my prize package.

    Checking in went smoothly and the gentleman at the front desk was very nice.  I had a nice room on the top floor with a great view of the Hollywood Hills.  On the table, there was a bottle of water, a baked treat, and a card welcoming me to the hotel.

    I would definitely stay here again, only problem I had was with the valet ($35).  I left to go have brunch the next day and was coming back.  After I had checked out and gone home, I saw that I got charged twice for valet.  Next time, I'll just find parking nearby.

    Nice and modern hotel, great view from the room, and a very friendly and accommodating staff.  You're doing just fine at the Line Hotel!

    The Line Hotel Staff does a great job of making sure that guests are taken care of very promptly.While it is phenomenal for an business group, couples, or an individual, it may  be the best place for a family. There's phenomenal access to resources around downtown, including Walt Disney Concert Hall, Bunker Hill, J-Town, etc. Great location for access to the freeway as well.

    I stayed here for one night with my cousins and I liked the room. Nice, clean, spacious, and comfortable. I also liked the view of Koreatown this hotel offers. However, the huge con is that parking is ridiculously expensive. Expect to pay more than $30 for it.

    We had corner room, which supposed to be larger, but was quite small. Not as small as Manhattan hotels rooms :-). Room and bathroom was clean and well maintained. Decent breakfast. Parking expensive, 4 days of parking will buy you one hotel night, but this seems to be standard in LA. Internet speed acceptable. Nice.

    What kind of hotel is this place?

    I admit, this place is fun to go out with a group of friends on a Friday or Saturday night. Music is great, there are lots of people, and a nice place to socialize. But once you go upstairs and see their rooms, you begin to wonder people even bother checking into this place.

    The rooms are abhorrent. For a rack rate of about $200, you are paying to stay in a prison cell. The second you step out of the elevator, you are welcomed by patchy grey walls and get an eerie feeling throughout the entire place. I was hoping that the rooms would be better but unfortunately it was all the same.

    The rooms are relatively tiny and the beds are as small as a bed in a college dorm. The walls are still that weird patchy grey and white color and the view is awful. You are literally staring out into other ugly buildings in DTLA.

    I'm not really sure what kind of theme they are trying to convey at The Line Hotel but my friends and I all agreed that it reminded us of a prison. I think there are many nicer hotels in LA and for a cheaper price.

    Such a great hotel experience. From the customer service to the views - oh, those views! - you'll be thankful you chose this spot. I came on a business trip. Knowing this place can get popping at night (turned into a club), one of the very helpful  front desk staffers chose a room for me away from all the noise.... which by the way, had the best view of the Hollywood Hills. I was never disturbed by the noise and I have to say this was one of the best hotel experiences, if not the best, that I ever had.

    My parents and other family members came to visit me in Koreatown and could not fit everyone at my place so I decided to put them up at The Line.  The Line's online reservation system is not the best so I walked down to the hotel it's self and made reservations.

    I got my parents a room on the Hollywood Hills side and my sister and niece a room on the Wilshire street side.  When they all checked in a K-Pop star was staying their with a huge entourage so I worried it was going to be too noisy for my parents.  But they said their mid level room facing the Hollywood Hills was quiet.  

    My sister and niece who had a Wilshire street side top floor room said it was a bit noisy and they are night owls. But they all agreed they enjoyed the hotel. We didn't try any of the restaurants so this review is just for the hotel.

    We were very pleased with the hotel, service, and staff. Even though this is one of the older hotels in the city you will be glad you stayed. The décor and the staff are great and everything was very clean. We were in town for pleasure and its central location was exactly what we were looking for. We would definitely stay again.

    This one-star review is solely for the fact that their valet stole my wallet which had my cash and credit cards inside from the trunk of my car.

    I guess my review could apply to the hotel, cafe, and Pot. But I'll be focusing on the hotel. I was a bit afraid that my room would be extremely tiny, but it was moderate. The furniture is laid out efficiently and the room is gorgeous. The tiny details in the decorations is what captured me. Of course, my favorite part is the floor to ceiling windows. I didn't have the Hollywood hills view, but I was on the 12th floor and the noise was minimal with the exception of a car horn every once in a while. Service was friendly, I was greeted by everyone I came across to.

    Honestly, the Koreatown area is a bit too sketchy for me to walk around freely. The second morning I was here, I was across the street walking to get breakfast while I was on my phone. And literally, a random man punched me hard right in the arm and walked away mumbling something. Ugh.

    My one gripe about this place is parking. Actually, parking anywhere in Koreatown was a pain in the ass. But for the two nights I was here, my parking came out to around $70.

    I can't complain about any of the employees, the service and friendliness of all the staff. I can't complain about the gorgeous view from my bed facing the Hollywood Hills. I can't complain on how nice the room was and cool the overall feel of the entire hotel was...

    But I can complain about being charged $70 for a 1 night stay by the valet parking!!! Nowhere online, at valet or front desk did it say $35 per day valet parking. I got charged twice for a one night stay $70. I only had 1 car. I didn't leave and come back and I only stayed 1 day not 2. So where is this charge coming from? Hopefully nobody else got charged this. I did see someone else mention being charged twice for going to brunch. If your going to charge $35 for parking that sure as hell better be a full 24 hours and should let you be able to leave for a meeting, convention or simple to meet with someone for lunch or dinner. I saw another review on yelp and she said she went to lunch with a friend and then got charged again for valet. That is ridiculous!!!! I want my valet tip back! Nothing like going out of town for a weekend trip and then get screwed with hidden charges.

    BTW after reading other reviews, it looks like regular pricing for valet was $8 and it was $35  because of HK convention, I'll double check on that.

    I can only review the bar, lounge and dance floor. Came here on a Saturday with a group of friends. It was packed and thought we would have a long wait to get it, but we got in quick. Inside was two bars on opposite ends of the lounge. We downed some shots of whiskey, grabbed some beers and went out to the cluster of couches and tables in the center. People were tightly packed within the place. Hip hop music was bumping. It was fun. It was a friendly, happy and fun loving crowd. Choices of beers and liquors were quite limited as I would find out later that evening ordering more drinks. Bathrooms can have decent side lines ( even the men's surprisingly). All-in-all, this is one fun venue to party at!

    Have yet to stay here but I did spend an evening at Pot restaurant, Pot bar & Pot Cafe on a recent weeknight with friends. Entrance is along Wilshire. Don't blink or you'll miss it. I did on the first cruise by. Went around the block thinking that could not have been the entrance but sure enough it was. Valet parking is immediately to your left right by the hotel entrance. I had my reservations about valet parking at first because my car sits pretty low to the ground and since it was my first time at The Line, I didnt know where they parked their cars and I was worried it would get scraped up. The valet guys were gracious enough to offer to leave my car up on the lobby deck but as it turned out my car was in totally good hands because another valet said his car was really low and he'd make sure my car was taken care of. It was parked downstairs along with the other cars. That's the reassurance I needed. And me being crazy about my car, that was the peace of mind I need. And yes, I  made sure to tip the valet well..... There is a 3 hour validation when you eat at Pot. It should only be about $8 after validation but we stayed a while so my ticket ended up being $13. It was fine with me. Not really much choice as parking on the side streets in the area is scarce and parking along Wilshire is non-existent.

    Pot was great but I 'll leave the details of my dining experience there with that review. The Pot bar was excellent and the bartenders were super cool and easy to deal with. My friends were loving their Grey Goose gimlets and various wines by the glass. I wasnt drinking but was happy that they had a ginger beer that I liked.

    My friends really liked the pastries and coffee drinks they ordered at Pot Cafe. There was one toasted bread dessert that was drizzled with condensed milk they got which I'm sure was good. I didn't partake in any as I was stuffed from our dinner at Pot but it smelled great and i'm sure it tasted great too.

    The lobby of The Line is very minimalistic which I like. A lot of grey tones which I also like. My friends have stayed here one weekend and they said the rooms are on the small-side but enjoyed their stay, especially the room-service. The restrooms in the lobby are nice and clean and modern. No plain paper towels but that heavy duty kind. That good good. Ha! I'm impressed with The Line so far. I look forward to having drinks there again and trying their other tasty offerings.

    ps - good to see Roy Choi stroll through the late hours with his daughter in tow checking up on his spot. He's a tastemaker and game-changer for sure. Props.

    My wife and were able to stay here about a month ago. Seems comparable to the Ace Hotel in Downtown. Nice trendy modern decor with a comfortable bed. Went with the Hollywood Hills view which was quite nice. Room service food was pretty good with some Korean / Asian elements mixed in which is unusual in America but seeing as it was in Ktown, understandable. Looks like they have various restaurants and food joints planned - had some goods from the bakery - some unique stuff there. Murals from D*Face & Shepard Fairey on the outside were a plus. No tub though, just a shower with curtain.

    Definitely will return if staying in LA.

    I didn't stay at the actual hotel, but like every other asian, came here on a friday night for their hotel lobby turned bar. You're most likely going to bump into someone you know here. The venue itself isn't too bad.

    PROS:
    There are more seating areas than clubs, so if you're dancing on the small dance area, you can take breaks there.

    The small bakery inside has options for when you get the munchies! Also, if you don't feel like waiting forever to waive a bartender down, they do have a limited drink selection at that section.

    CONS:
    Their bathroom lines move very slowly and the line stretches out very long, so a good chunk of time is spent waiting for the bathroom!

    Their drinks are horrible. I ordered some of their specialty cocktails, the penicillin, long island iced tea, and gin/tonic which were disappointing. I am usually a light drinker but I found myself sober after 3 drinks.. put more alcohol in the drinks!

    You can validate your parking pass at the bar and it's only $8. If you don't, you'll regret it.

    NEVER EVER AGAIN.

    I was such a big supporter of this hotel even before it started. The minute I heard Roy Choi was a part of this place I was 100% onboard. I checked it out and was a total fan - I liked the food at Pot, the vibe at the Commissary, the chillaxness of the Cafe during the daytime and the fun frenzy of the Lobby Bar... for the most part. Today, however, proved me wrong on all points. Not only was I denied from valet parking at the hotel, there was a super long line to even get into the Lobby Bar. Granted, it was a Saturday night... but this is a LOBBY BAR not a CLUB!

    I was supposed to visit a friend who was staying at the hotel but the valet guy - dressed in a black tee and jeans, mind you - insisted that I could not park at valet unless I was staying at the hotel. I told him I was visiting a friend staying at the hotel but he insisted that unless I was staying at the hotel and getting the "white ticket that costs $35 dollars" that I could not park there. DOUBLE-U-TEE-EFF!!

    Long story short, this place is not worth going to at all if they cannot even handle the regular traffic on a weekend night! Sorry, but if you open a hotel in K-Town, you should be able to handle the business on any given night. Hate to sound like a snob because I am not that much of one, but not even the Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills would deny you parking privileges if you were seeking services at their hotel. Sorry, I love Roy Choi but I will have to catch his food somewhere there is less abusive service.

    Horrible service - from messing up our reservation, two phone calls to make it right, a still incorrect confirmation call, another phone call and STILL not having it right when we showed up, to leaving us sitting at a table outside for an hour without any human contact - we actually had to walk to the hostess to retrieve our bill, which took another 20 minutes to appear and an additional trip to the hostess to collect because the server never came back.

    Food was trying too hard and the menu fell victim to typical hipster aspirations. Things like "green sauce" and "brown sauce" were the descriptors on most everything and when we asked what these were we got an even less-appealing description. We tried the artichokes, asparagus, eggplant, cauliflower, shrimp po'boy, and the schnitzel - all highly recommended by our server and all equally uninteresting upon delivery. The food was cold, but the plates were hot (sitting around too long?). Best thing about this place is the room itself and the cocktails. Go for a drink, but eat elsewhere is my recommendation. I was particularly disappointed because I really expected more from Roy Choi. It's been around too long already for anything to be blamed on "opening kinks" and I really feel this space would be better used as strictly a bar or brunch place and that the entire service staff/system needs to be seriously looked at. Until then, I won't be back.

    It was my first time staying here, but I already knew I was in love with the Line Hotel.  Prior to booking, I had already read reviews about this hotel, so I was prepared for the abnormally high valet parking fee and the lackluster toiletries.  But my review is based purely on aesthetics and customer service.  

    I love the ultra modern features and functional design of the Line Hotel.  All of the rooms sport floor to ceiling windows, offering a panoramic view of either the Hollywood Hills or LA city life.  Blackout and roman shades ensured a good night's sleep, undisturbed by the rising sun.  Although the rooms are only 300 square feet, they are able to maximize the space without feeling over cluttered.  

    The customer service at Line Hotel was also spot on.  From the valet to the front desk, everyone aimed to provide an excellent experience.  At check in, the front desk associate was thoughtful enough to give us a complimentary upgrade on our room to a better view.  He made sure we had a great view of the Hills, unobstructed by the apartment buildings next door.  That extra step guaranteed our stay would be enjoyable.

    Located conveniently in Koreatown, the Line Hotel is easily within walking distance of all the great bars and kbbq spots.  Because of their great service and rooms, this hotel has definitely become my hotel of choice in Ktown.

    I love the modern decor and the color scheme they used to dress up the lobby.

    Unfortunately, this review is about their lobby and not their rooms. Since I'm a local, I don't have a reason to stay, but if I ever decide to do a STAYcation, this would be one of my top choices.

    Everyone is courteous and super accommodating. Customer service is on point. The Pot Bar is great and have a huge selection of drinks.

    I love this place because it's so convenient and it happens to be my old stomping grounds.

    The last time I came to this hotel was when my mom brought me to see a KPOP group (Young Turks) while they were in town. I was able to meet them and get their autograph and photo. This was in the late 90's. :P

    The transformation of this place is amazing and I can't wait to do all my happy hours here.

    Oh and I saw a Jonas Brother, which one? Who knows, just another white guy to me.

    Friday and Saturday nights are bumpin'.
    DJ Zo kills it on Saturday nights with some Hip-Hop. The crowd is very Asian. You can get bottle service here. (Which I did not have a good experience)

    The hotel itself is pretty nice. I went to the Hello Kitty Convention party, I got to take a good tour of the hotel. I also like the rooms because it is modern and you can see the view of Koreatown.

    Updating my review.

    I had a bad sinus infection when I visited the Line and I was an overall grouch during my stay. I was disappointed at the high valet fees, false room service charge, popcorn ceilings and freezing temps, however I felt bad leaving such a caustic review. I'm like Lenny in Mice and Men; sometimes I don't know my own strength, and words can hurt, you know?

    Long story short, I spoke with the manager and they refunded the erroneous $50 room service charge, for which I am thankful.

    Line Hotel is fine, it's hip, it's cute, and it's conveniently located in Koreatown which is great for getting downtown or to Silverlake. Your mileage may vary.

    The hotel was very modern and sleek. I wish the beds were at least queen sizes and not 2 fulls, luckily all 4 of us could fit into the 2 fulls. The beds face the floor to ceiling window which is cool because you get a good view of Carl's Jr and Koreatown. The room was clean, not too spacious though. The black out shades are awesome because the sun wasn't right in our faces waking up even though I woke up at 6 am everyday because of east coast time.  However, I love that the hotel is situated in the middle of Koreatown so you have access to tons of restaurants. My other favorite part was the 24/7 gym, it was upscale and had these new machines I've neer seen before. It was well kept and a clean area. Yes, I know...gym during vacation? I had to run off all the bad food I was going to be eating!

    The service was incredible, from the front desk to the staff in general, (the guys walking around with white shirts, tight jeans and black shoes). I saw the same guy who we met the first day at least 3 times a day everyday for our whole trip and each time he asked us how we were and what we were doing that day. Very friendly people! I would stay here again even though its a little bit further from downtown but ain't nothing like having the metro across from the hotel. For $5, you have unlimited access to metroes and busses all day!

    I haven't been in the LA lounge scene for years so when brother suggested after-dinner drinks here, we wanted to check it out.

    Turns out, this was right up our alley!  Being older and more crotchety, we were no longer into the shoulder-to-shoulder thumping music dance crowd.  What this was totally surprised us...a tasteful hotel lounge that's just been turned up a notch.

    To be fair, we were there only earlier in the night - it may or may not have gotten crazy later on but for while we were there 9pm-10pm-ish, the scene was perfect.  There's even a bakery!  There was plenty of seating (a rarity in nightlife, a must for my old feet) and the music was just at the right volume.

    The drink service is as can be expected at most places - sporadic and aloof.  There were plenty of gals to be flagged down, sporting their uber-retro fanny-pack look.  The drinks were ok, trying really hard to be "artisanal" but were hit and miss.

    All in all, a nice place to check out when you want to be in a party atmosphere but minus the painful feet and crowding.

    A nice and safe hotel! Once we arrived, they asked if we wanted to upgrade our room for $30 a night, we did, and got a bigger room. The parking is expencive and because this is America, you have to tip the valet each time you get your car, wich can be pretty expencive. But the hotel is cool, comfy bed. Bring ear plugs! The air con is extremely noisy, also, if your room is facing the street, the traffic will make lots of noise too.

    The hotel kept charging our card each night in addition to our deposit "in case we did not have money at the check out", wich was annoying. We now have to wait a week for the reserved money back. Also, an art piece from the room was gone after the cleaning lady was there, we got charged for it, but got refunded after we told them twice that we did not take the art thingy. Have to wait a week for that refund too. Annoying!!!

    But all in all, nice hotel, a bit far away from "everything" in LA, noisy bar downstairs, but we felt safe in the neighbourhood and at the hotel.

    This review is for my dinner that we had at The Commissary inside The Line Hotel. The hotel itself is very new, modern and clean. I can tell that it would be a little expensive to stay there, but it's probably worth the price right? I love that this is in the heart of K-town...it doesn't really feel that much like it's a K-town joint.

    Go up to the Commissary and you'll enjoy your meal inside a beautiful luscious greenhouse. A lot of greenery and lush vegetation surround you as you enjoy your time here. We had different types of water cups, which I thought was a cute trendy thing for them to do. We ordered a bunch of different plates / dishes to share. I think a lot of us liked the corn and the steak. The way that the menu is set-up is a little weird though -- there are drawings of the main part of a dish (e.g. the steak dish only had a drawing of a steak) so you don't really know what else goes into the dish.  Here is a pretty good description that I found online somewhere:

    "The menu is printed on two separate cards, one with illustrations of vegetables and meats such as kale, radish, eggs, fish, steak and pasta. These are lettered, and underneath each menu category (divided by price -- $15, $20, etc.) corresponding letters tell you what each drawing is (in case you can't tell, say, a radish from a beet).

    There is also a legend on the second card, where you have to look up the letter that represents each illustration to find out how each dish is prepared. The steak is "grilled ribeye, A1, poblano, brown sauce," for example. A separate glossary on the second card also provides a guide to the sauces: Green sauce is garlic, brown sauce is chiles and soy, etc. It is a lot of cross-referencing...."

    Here's a quick little blurb that I found on the Line Hotel website:

    "Commissary is a greenhouse with a focus on fruits and vegetables. It's not necessarily a vegetarian restaurant, just good food and drink based around plants as the foundation. It's also an homage to all the people and families here in So Cal that work on farms to bring food to our tables. Set beside a shimmering pool, it's got all the amenities of a private club but created for the public. Come sunbathe in carrot juice, mack on a salad, or grab some eggs and toast. Commissary is your own little oasis where you can feel right at home and chill."

    The hotel is very cool. We loved our well thought out room, and friendly and professional GSA. Overall nice stay. Few things, though... We stayed over for birthday getaway and had spoken to the manager to arrange some things in the room. The arrangement wasn't met and there was no follow up by the management. Also the housekeeper didn't knock before entering our room the following morning, and if it wasn't for my husband that was coincidentally standing by the door/bathroom, we would've completely exposed ourselves to that lady. We had dined at the Commissary. Food was great, awesome drinks, the atmosphere was sensational... However, one server/bartender(?) we had was horrible. It's really sad when customer service & professionalism & friendliness lacks in a lovely venue like that. Both my husband and I've been in a hospitality/F&B industry, too, so we get it; she must've had one of those days. But when the curtain goes up, you put on your mask and get to it.

    I originally had a reservation at the Historic Hollywood Hotel, but they only had smoking rooms available so Hotels.com switched me to The Line.

    Let me start by saying this hotel was amazing.
    Here is why...
    ~ The employees were friendly. Great customer service.
    ~ The location was central.
    ~ The breakfast was delicious.
    ~ The hotel & room were hip & trendy. The design & decor were really neat & artistic.
    ~ The view from my 12th floor room was amazing! The bed faced the wall-sized window & provided a perfect view of the surrounding neighborhoods.

    I was impressed & extremely pleased with the hotel, room, & staff.

    ** The only thing I didn't like was that the hotel didn't provide free parking. You can have your car valeted & parked overnight for $35/day **
    The Line is great, regardless of the parking situation.

    Next time I'm in LA I will def be staying at The Line.

    Line Hotel Lounge Bar
    *****************************

    This review is related to the Lounge Bar, not the Hotel.  

    Its strange how the least likely of places becomes the epicenter of nightlife.  This is so true for his bar.  Its seems so arbitrary that this would be a major korean / asian hangout spot on the weekends.  It gets pretty packed.  

    And its not that glamorous a venue.  Its basically the hotel lobby turned bar / lounge.  The seating and decor seem pretty dated.  Lighting is horrible.  Sound system is horrible.   And the restroom facility is atrocious. Not enough stalls.  Huge lines for guys and gals.  Absolute FAIL in this department.   There is an unorganized amorphous mass that congests the area around the bar.  Expect to wait for a good 10-15 minutes for a drink at peak times.  It can get pretty frustrating to buy a drink.  FAIL.   They should have a dedicated beer-with-cash-only line.  

    But despite all the obvious defects of this place, there are some positives.  The line to get in is minimal, so no standing around for an hour to get into the  club nonsense.  And to their credit, there is no cover charge.  Thats a nice touch by management.  

    It is worth noting, the crowd is very young and attractive here.  Lots of eye candy.  And I actually do have fun ultimately as I run into a number of people I know.  

    So overall - Its a reluctant thumbs up.

    My car was broken while in the valet service custody and nobody took responsibility for the damages.

    I would say the only parking option is valet, at least that was the only option they gave me when I drove in The Line's driveway. I did valet my car and when I picked it up, my door handle was broken and malfunctioning, and part of it was gone. It looked like a valet employee had broken it and then hidden/thrown away the missing part in an attempt to hide his error. I noticed it immediately and filed a claim right away, meanwhile nobody took responsibility or knew anything about it.

    After a week, the valet service claim department contacted me stating that they weren't responsible for the damages, when clearly someone broke my car while I was having dinner at the hotel restaurant. Therefore, I contacted The Line Hotel to let them know the situation and ask for assistance, and after a few days of investigation, they said they would not assume costs for the damages either.

    I wanted to point out also that the damages were around $50 only, so I was very disappointed at the non responsive customer service from the hotel, who I believe is the ultimate responsible to their guests comfort and satisfaction.

    It was a short stay at The Line for a quick business trip. It was my fist visit so I kept my expectations low. Everything turned out excellent - from check-in, to the room and amenities, food and services. This is not a value hotel, so you'll pay a reasonable price for the experience.

    Line is great if you know what you're getting into. The rooms are well-designed, nicely appointed and comfortable, but they are very small.

    The service is good.

    The hotel bikes are junk - very poorly maintained.

    The rooftop restaurant is awesome and the cocktails are superb.

    BEWARE: BAR SERVICE IS SUPER SLOW, NOT FRIENDLY, AND THEY SNEAK ON A TIP WITHOUT TELLING YOU. So when you tip on top of the drinks when they deliver it to you, you are actually giving them double.

    It took me 40 minutes to get 2 drinks. The bartenders were INCREDIBLY slow and had no idea what the drink prices were. HOW CRAZY is that??? SO many people at the bar made comments about how the bar tenders gave estimates to the prices of drinks but didn't know what the ACTUAL price was.

    Example, this guy ordered 5 of the same beers and the bartender said it would be about $7 a drink...? and then had to check the cash register. Another guy ordered 2 cocktails and the bartender guessed it was $30. WHAAAT??? how does that make sense that the employees don't know the drink prices??

    THEN they charged my friend an extra drink and when we figured it out and talked to management, they basically dismissed him and the entire situation. TERRIBLE SERVICE. No apologies, no trying to help the customer~~ just plain rude.

    The ventilation is bad so make sure to wear something light b/c by the end of the night you'll be sweating through everything you wore out.

    Outside of the crappy service and weird prices...i had fun. The way to get a drink is to sit at a table and have a waitress come to you. I went there for a birthday party and the venue was nice, the music was good, and it was easy to find. The crowd is good looking and late 20s. It helped that there was a huge crowd of 40-50 people that we knew.

    Line Hotel is the new and hip bar to be in ktown but I would honestly go to a smaller bar like toebang, gaam, blue or any other bar in the area.

    PASS on this place. two thumbs down.

    we came to celebrate a friend's bday here on a saturday night. The hotel is in the heart of Ktown and the parking was horrible as usual. overall the ambiance and the vibe of the place is really chill. we got a bottle service last minute and got ushered to a spacious round booth right away. The music was also pretty good and they played mostly hip hop and not that edm stuff.
    oh yea they got a hot dog cart right outside if you're hungy after partying :)

    me and justin b. took the metro all the way from Orange County and The Line Hotel is literally across the street from the Wilshire/Normandie station so if public transportation is an option for your travel plans, then i highly recommend it to save the valet parking cost at the hotel! plus tons of restaurants and things to do within walking distance of the hotel or if not, there's always uber or lyft haha. we survived our one night stay just fine without a car and just walking around K-town. there's so much to eat/drink at the hotel itself that you really dont even have to leave either haha. we started off with happy hour at the Pot Lobby bar (2:30pm - 7pm) then moved upstairs to Commissary for more drinks, then walked around the city a bit and after dinner, went back to Pot to see how the nighttime crowd was there.

    as for the room itself - we booked a discounted rate on the Hotel Tonight app (message me if you want a referral code haha) which was a lot cheaper of a rate compared to when i asked the front desk what they would charge me for that same night. so i ended up paying about $195 (plus tax) for a spur of the moment getaway. its still a bit pricey - but the trendy decor, the food/bar scene, and the location in town made it at least worth the while for the price. love the concrete walls and hipster-y decor. we were on the 12th floor and it was still pretty noisey - whether it was the street noise, the sirens, or our neighbors - def don't expect a quiet and peaceful environment. didnt have any trouble sleeping but just be aware of the noise levels. great hollywood hills views though and loved the black out curtains! also love the free wi-fi and since this was a last minute stay, we didn't have any toiletries and housekeeping was able to provide toothbrushes, tooth paste and deodorant for us without an extra charge. the entire staff from the bar, restaurants, and front desk were all so friendly and helpful :)

    overall i was really happy with our last minute decision to stay here and would not hesitate to stay here again!

    A solid hotel in the heart of Koreatown.

    Up until now I cant say that I was very familiar with Koreatown, not that Im an expert now but I have learned a few things.

    - There are 1 million Korean BBQ restaurants here. Seriously, I know there has to be more to eat than Korean BBQ in Korea...town.

    - Hey, everything is pretty local. Museums to the West, Hollywood to the North and Downtown to the East.

    - The Line hotel almost seems out of place. Sorry, but its true.  

    ::::::::::LOCATION::::::::::

    Very convenient to anything LA has to offer, it is really in a class of its own compared to the neighboring hotels in the area.  With such snazzy places as a Ramada, The Line Hotel is like a Four Seasons.

    You can either Valet, or walk from somewhere else.  The Valet area is pretty spacious actually.  And there are always attendants available to assist you.

    ::::::::::HOTEL::::::::::

    Very modern and non fussy.  You can tell they invested some time and a whole lot of money converting this into a young hip destination, which it truly is.  Check-In is directly at the front of the hotel. I never understood why some hotels place Check-In in a hidden corner, like do you want my money or not.  There is a gift shop that seems like an after thought of sorts.  The Lobby/Bar area is unusual.  A gaggle of large banquets. Eh.  A small cafe that comes in handy late night.  Outdoor patio and POT all the way in the back.  Neat.

    ::::::::::ROOM::::::::::

    Th running theme in young modern decor is obscure details and a slap in the face to traditional elegance.  The room was nice, but there were some issues.

    Bathroom - the bathroom was small, to say the least...but the sliding door was puzzling.  It didn't really "close" so someone in the main room could HEAR and SMELL everything that was going on in the commode. Work on that peeps.  Also, the mirror was slanted, so it gives an unusual outlook on life.  Like it really messed up my proportions...so I had to do my makeup in the hallway.  I need to see myself face-forward...not forehead slanted.

    Sleeping Area - Floor to Ceiling Windows (Check), Desk (Check) Sitting space with odd table (Check) not enough space to get to the other side of the bed without crawling on the bed (Check).  

    All in all the hotel was nice and id stay here again.  

    CON - If you are a light sleeper DO NOT STAY HERE.  Downstairs is a big party all night, and they didn't sound proof the windows or walls.  You could hear EVERYTHING.  From the drunk girl who kept screaming SHOTS SHOTS SHOTS to the music.

    I didn't stay at the hotel, but I did visit the bar downstairs. And boy, was it terrible.

    Somebody basically tried to turn a hotel lobby into a Hollywood lounge. Problem is that it's still a hotel lobby, and feels that way. It's bizarre, and doesn't work. Add to it the fact that the bartenders seem unhappy, the drinks they make are subpar, and that every patron is an awkward Korean (I'm Korean, I'm allowed to say that), and you're basically in a half-assed attempt at becoming the next hot spot. Truly lame.

    Oh yeah, was real nice having the valet "lose" our car for half an hour as well.

    I had a fantastic stay here at The Line Hotel. Everything from the room to the layout of the hotel...it really is a boutique hotel! On Friday and Saturday nights, the lobby area turns into a bar. Pretty nice!

    Commissary located on the 2nd floor is also a cool place to check out. It's a little greenhouse, so I thought that was pretty unique. The pool area is nice as well. Looking over the mini skyline around Koreatown--not bad!

    One thing I enjoyed at The Line Hotel was the bike rental. I believe it is from 9AM-4/5PM.

    Oh and finally, check out their TV channel. I found their hotel channel to be super interesting....I know for sure its channel one. I think it's called "Peep This"? DOPE.

    I'll definitely stay here at this hotel again.

    TheThe Line Hotel is a beautiful hotel. Due to Honors status, we were upgraded to one of the executive floors. Our room had a living room and view of the lake. The furnishings are a little antiquated, but fit with the decor of the hotel.

    Really cute place to get a drink and hang out on a Friday night. It's not a ''club'' per se but they do have a DJ and there is some space to dance a little. I love that there are small little couches around so you are able to sit a little without ordering table service.

    parking is tough and usually gotta valet which costs $8.00.

    Guys night out for us tonight and we ended up and Line Bar. I've heard a lot about this place but never got the chance to go, so how could I resist?

    Highlights of the trip:
    Parking: not terrible. I found a spot a few blocks away near some kbbq place. Maybe I got really lucky? I know the parking around this area can be awful.

    Front Door (5/5): I arrived about 11:15pm. Despite being called Line Hotel, and much to my surprise, there was NO LINE at the entrance! I hate it when they make you wait in line in front of an empty place just to make it seem crowded inside. I guess there were enough people smoking on the patio outside to make up for the lack of line at the door.

    Drinks (2/5)... $9 for a draft beer? +$1 tip makes $10 for a stinkin beer...? sheesh. On the bright side, I had a 0% chance of getting a DUI on the way home. The beer was a pale ale and quite good though, so 2/5?

    People: It was a mixed bag of youngins drunk off their @ss, running into me constantly, and attitude-y ktown crowd.

    Music (1/5)... I don't understand. It was a very wide variety of edm, 90s hip hop, and even some Backstreet Boys and TLC. "You are, my Fiiireee...."  I love Backstreet Boys, sometimes I'll even sing it in the car, but it may be the last thing I want to hear when I'm out.

    Overall 3/5. I can see why people go here. The scene just doesn't suit my taste like it used to.

    Loved this hotel!  In the heart of Koreatown, you can easily walk to restaurants.

    The gym here was really nice with all new machines.The pool was a good size and they had comfortable chairs that were directly in the sun.

    Staff was very, very friendly and helpful.  On the weekends at night, there is a large drinking crowd downstairs.  Looks fun, but I passed because I was still so jetlagged.

    They also have free bikes you can use for up to 4 hours and they give you maps.

    Rooms were clean, I wish they had beds bigger than the double size.  The decor is pretty cool, but the walls kind of make you feel like you are in a garage.

    All in all, I loved the location of this hotel, the staff was awesome, and the price was great.  I would definitely stay here again.

    Cool, modern boutique hotel reminiscent of W Hotel, but slightly more industrial with the unfinished cement interior walls. Beds were a little soft for my tastes, but I guess that is a matter of opinion. Interesting art pieces and fixtures throughout. Convenient to the subway system (across the street). Although I wouldn't probably use them, they offer bikes to borrow. There is a really good bakery/cafe inside the hotel which, as well as the Pot restaurant and the Pot bar which turns into a club like atmosphere on the weekends.

    I rarely write reviews, but the black guy (sorry I didn't get your name) working at the front was super fresh and deserves my time and effort. Stayed here over the weekend, loved the room, service was excellent, and they offered HDMI cables to connect my laptop to the big screen (nerd). Saturday the lounge was poppin, don't get offended when they ask for proof of room key when you leave and come back, they're just trying to keep the rift rafts out. Parking.... we actually just parked a block away, found a timer that was flashing green, lasted us until 6pm where the rest of the night and all day Sunday was free. There are other options too besides the $35 valet, just gotta look. Will stay here again fo sho.

    One of my favorite places in Los Angeles!!!! I love everyone and everything about The Line! I consider it an extension of my own living room in Koreatown. It's so wonderful to have a place that is so close to my home, that has so much to offer. From POT to Commissary, POT Café and everyone in the lounge. I love every person that works there and all that they do. Thank you for giving me this place.

    I love small, boutique hotels and I highly recommend The Line while in LA. Reasonable pricing for lodging as well as for f&b. Yes, the rooms are small, but unless you plan on spending a great deal of time in them, it doesn't really matter. And they have huge windows with great views. Unfortunately, my A/C did not work and they front desk agents never moved me (as promised) but I can look past that. I'd still return.

    The restaurant, Commissary, really makes this place even more amazing. If you don't stay in the hotel, at least treat yourself and experience Commissary. The pool is adjacent to the restaurant which has limited sunlight due to the tall buildings, but nice to lounge by regardless.

    LMFAO!!!! I honestly didn't know what to expect other than a bunch of asians running around in collared shirts and creepy gawking.

    It's literally the lobby of a hotel... as in where people would stand, or sit, in waiting to check in or out of their rooms. They turn what is normally a small bakery/cafe spot to a semi floating bar. Haha, honestly... whoever runs the hotel's marketing program needs a promotion. How funny that you can get a bunch of people to congregate here on Fridays and Saturdays. It looks like a high school reunion. Seriously.

    Drinks are, I believe, $13 a piece.

    Haha.... funny.

    Stayed here last weekend as my boyfriend was visiting from New York. Now my guy is an artsy type of guy so after searching through dozens of hotels online we absolutely loved this one due to the various art pieces in the lobby and the way the walls in the room were "unfinished". When we checked in it was smooth and I wish I could remember the name of the ms who checked us in but she was very very nice. She even recognized my hometown from my ID and what a small world we had a few friends from high school in common. It's always nice when people go above their job duties and build rapport with their customers.
    We ended up being upgraded to a Hollywood sign view room and it was uh-mazing. The bathroom- loved it. The furniture- loved it. The bed- super soft. I just loved everything I wish that was my studio apartment lol.
    We ordered room service , some mimosas and the mac n cheese. ORDER THE MAC N CHEESE. just do it. Trust me. Thank me later.
    I will definitely stay here again when my boyfriend is in town. Loved it!

    This place is..... VERY interesting. Definitely nothing I've ever seen before lol. Hotel lobby turned bar/lounge/club on the weekends. What? Yeah.

    If ya love ya Asians, this place is for you. It's in K-Town so that's not too surprising. One of the guys I came here with is a K-Town native, and he says that you will probably run into your exes here LOL. Ok I didn't run into any exes but I did run into about 4-5 people I knew and recognized several other faces of people I kind of know. Depending on what you like, that could be a good or bad thing lol.

    But I did have lots of fun here. Ended up here somehow after a night of barhopping with some gf's and bf's, and for the most part, everyone had fun. The music was great. There were plenty of couch space. There was a.... dance floor I guess, 2 different bar areas, and long lines for the bathroom.

    One of the "bars" also has a counter where you can order baked goods apparently. I was already kinda tipsy when I was looking through these goodies, and I saw "Pot Brownie Bar" or something............... and I was like WHOAAAAAA a lounge/bar/club/hotel AND A MJ DISPENSARY??? This place has it all!! But that's.... not the case LOL. Apparently the restaurant "Pot" is also in the area and I'm guessing that's where they got the name. HAHa that's a good one.

    I won't lie, I've kiiiind of been wanting to check this place out for awhile & I finally had the chance when a friend of mine wanted to celebrate her birthday here but I was pretty disappointed in the place.  I didn't like it nor did I have much fun.

    It's literally... a bunch of people hanging outside the hotel and inside the hotel lobby.  We came pretty early and there was no line so we got in right away.., but we felt a little awkward and out of place so we left and decided to come back later.  We came back around 12 ish and it was packed!  Still, there was no line though---so win for us because once we got inside, I noticed there was a huge line after us.

    Very limited seating so be prepared to stand most of the time.  I didn't really venture around much at Line because it was just really crowded.  My group and I stayed outside the entire time....(beware of all the 2nd hand smoke--but then again, you're surrounded by Koreans, what do you expect!)  

    Going to the bathroom was by far the worst part of being here.  The lines for both men and women are massively long and they take f*cking forever!!! Like no lie, what the hell are they doing in the stalls ?! Oh, and theres only THREE stallls in the women's bathroom.  

    **What I found to be really weird and inappropriate is that.. there was a male janitor, going in and out of the women's bathroom, cleaning the stalls and emptying the trash.  If I'm not mistaken... most places have same gender janitors attending to the appropriate bathrooms. You guys might want to consider changing that.... **

    Overall, Line is not really my scene.  I don't see myself coming here again, unless i'm having a girl's night out maybe?  It's just awkward in my opinion.  No designated dance floor so people dance wherever they're standing... and just a bunch of people standing around.

    The Line is great for 1-2 nights - more than that, and you might get slightly claustrophobic. Valet parking and check-in were a breeze. Everyone is very friendly and professional. Ride up in tiger-wood elevator - nice. Open door: concrete everywhere. Walking down hallway....had that hot-day-wet-concrete-next-to-pool smell. A little humid, really. Reminded me of my college dorm hallways - except more narrow. Open 10th floor door to Hollywood Hills view room - ahhh - very nice. Wonderful view to go to sleep to, wonderful view to wake up to. And extremely quiet. Except I could hear the next door neighbor's tv....not loudly, just as a murmer.

    The rooms are laid out uber-efficiently. They need to be, as they're uber-small. Hence my comment about staying 1-2 nights. Even with the beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows that focus you on nothing more than the view, you will begin to notice that there's no avoiding banging your foot or knee or other body part on the end of the bed or desk or something. They've managed to fit in a large work table, two chairs and coffee table, along with the king-sized bed, so kudos for that. Really there's nothing more that you need in a room. For 1-2 nights. The bathroom is not large but it's not tiny. It's just the right size. For 1-2 nights. The closet area is also laid out very efficiently - but had we had more than 2 very small overnight bags, there would have been some challenges.

    The lobby area is alternately calm, bright and peaceful during the day....then hopping with a rad (yes - that's my age - I say rad) and LOUD pumping party with DJ at night. The crowd was decidedly young and hip...except for the older touristy couple (60's?) who were in their polos and khakis, facing away from the lobby and sitting on a cushy couch, rocking their socks off from sitting position. Not sure why but I imagined they were german tourists, just happy to have stumbled upon a party. They made my night. Also cool about the lobby - one end is a bar, the other end is a coffee/dessert/nibbly bits eatery. I do wish they would allow POT to serve in the lobby....but when I asked around 3pm, that was not an option (POT review here yelp.com/biz/pot-los-ang… ).

    The location is fun. For 1-2 nights. After that, not a lot you may be interested in. We were going to a show at the Wilshire Ebell theatre just down the street, so it was perfect for us.

    The pool was adequate - didn't seem to have bar service, although I didn't specifically ask (and we were out of there by 5:30pm - I did notice a different couple of attendants come on duty around then so maybe they offer more at that time). There was one pool attendant who served up water and towels and 47 kinds of suntan lotion. I did very much enjoy the floating pool blowup recliner - but there was only one, so first-come, first-served. You are just above Wilshire so it is a little loud....plus there seems to be either the air conditioning motor or venting from POT nearby, so you hear that the whole time. Didn't ruin my pool time though. The pool closes at 7pm....not sure why it needs to close that early

    The most frustrating part was the card key situation. The first time my key didn't work, I had come back from the pool and was trying to get in - fortunately an employee was leaving the room across the hall, and she opened the door. So I switched out the card later. Hubby also couldn't get in after running a errand - I was in the room so let him in. He switched out the card later. I had to get a new card a total of 3 times, he had to get it a total of 4 times. The final time was just before checkout and they sent an employee up with us to make sure the cards worked...and guess what? They didn't. So he let us in with his master. You really have to work this out, folks.....I've never ever stayed in a place where this has happened so much in such a short time period (we were there 21 hours total).

    I'd stay again - but only for a night, and only if I needed to very specifically be in the area.

    I think there should be a separate Yelp listing for the hotel lobby shenanigan that goes on at night. They try to have a lounge environment in a freaking bland nothing special hotel lobby. That's just ghetto. But somehow this place attracts a TON of Korean people on a Saturday night. ......how????

    There was old school hip-hop music spinning but to my disappointment, no one really danced. They barely put alcohol in the drinks. The scene is really dumb. I felt really dumb for being part of it last night.

    Friday night, LINE Bar.

    If you don't know what to do on a Friday night then I would suggest LINE. I feel bars and lounges slowly replace Clubs. You get the same great music, cool people and nice drinks. But you don't have to pay $20 to get in. And LINE Bar is very fun with a group of friends a little bit of alcohol and the right music and the right crowd.

    Who would've thunk that a hotel lobby can transform into a bustling bar/lounge atmosphere? I sure didn't but lo and behold -- I arrived on Friday night to be greeted by people dressed to impress and mingling around. It was a bustling and busy atmosphere. There was also a bakery there. It felt like a lounge but with better lighting, some food options, and situated in a hotel lobby. The atmosphere was dressy but at the same time, unpretentious and lax. Everyone was easy to talk to and friendly. I had a great time with my friends, but good company can make anyplace fun!

    I'd give this place 3.5 stars. It was pretty cool. I think the fact that it was a hotel added to its coolness factor. However, I'm in LA and I can think of other bars and lounges that I'm a bigger fan of.

    The dude and I stayed in the September for our Anniversary and overall had a blast. The room as very cool, wallpaper on the wall that makes it look like concrete, floor to ceiling windows that give a great view of the city but not that much privacy from the street. Loved all the quirky details of the room. Nice bathroom too, no complaints there.

    The downstairs bar area was going off in the evening but the music was a little strange, An odd mix but the crowd seemed to dig it so good for them, most of them were also drunk af. The lines at the bar were insaneeeely long almost like skip the drinks altogether or order 3 at a time.

    The location was really the only downside for us because it was in the heart of K-Town and well, we aren't asian. The restaurants nearby were mostly Korean and just unfamiliar BUT it was right across from the subway which takes you all over LA so that was very cool, spent a day in Hollywood without any trouble with parking - very convienent.

    Pot, Pot Lobby, Commissary, Break Room 86. All great during the week.

    Rooms are cool, but you can hear everything outside!!! Hard to sleep :(That's why I gave this place 3 stars.

    Woah, i loved this hotel. i came to LA for a short trip and accidentally never left the hotel.

    i ate dinner there at POT, went shopping in that store, sat in the room all day opening and closing the curtains non stop (BEST FEATURE), and then went to the bar at night (crowd is a little odd, though).

    this place is incredible! i got a good deal on the rooms so that made it more worth it and free wifi!

    my only con is probably just the crowd. other than that, great space!

    Stopping by here on a Saturday night is always a big deal. Lots of people. And they all want one thing, to have a good time. And you can come here and have lots of fun. But honestly, I think this place is better on a Monday though. Less people and better for having a good conversation. Honestly. People are taking Lots of pictures and having fun and for my generation. That means this place is on fleek. Check it out.

    I'm only commenting on the first floor lounge/bar area, not the actual stay at the hotel.

    Came here with some Korean friends of mine, and it really fun! It's definitely a happening place on Saturday nights. When you approach the hotel, you can already hear the music and tons of people outside in their side-walk patio area. The guys and girls are decked out. When you walk in, you see a large lounge area that is essentially an extension of the lobby. Many couches and low tables (you can get bottle service to reserve these). Some space in between to dance. In the back is a decently-sized bar with good service. Crowd here is pretty homogeneous Korean with a few scattered outsiders. Great music, fun people. No cover.

    I don't know much about the hotel other than its lobby and its elevators. I do know a bit about the restaurant. The Commissary. Not sure if I have the right number of M's and S's in there. Comisary. Yeah, that looks better.

    The top review right now is by someone named Hailey C. She called the place r a t c h e t.

    How did she know it was all going to stay on one line? And why are the extra spaces necessary? Does that make it more ratchet? Less ratchet? Is the first T in there required? Rachet? R a c h e t ?

    I like the restaurant. It's loud. It's an acoustics thing. If you are inside of a greenhouse with 75 talking people, it will be loud. Just be prepared. Maybe learn some sign language like we did. Or drink a lot like we did. Or don't talk.

    These are all options that you have. There are other options too, I am not listing all of them for you. Calling it ratchet is also an option but I don't know if that is really necessary.

    I came here twice in two weeks. That's an average of once a week over a two week period.

    The first time I came the server forgot our order of sweet potatoes and my mom almost had an aneurysm.

    First time in LA and decided to stay at The Line hotel. I heard very good reviews and the location where this hotel was great. (K-town with many restaurants around). There service was fast, friendly and on task.

    One thing there known for is the Lounge they have at the lobby during the night. Came to check it out downstairs on a Saturday night and man it was going off! Music was great! Even if you don't stay at this hotel I definitely recommend to come here for a drink or a night out with friends!

    Loved everything here.

    1. The hotel itself is awesome. We got upgraded for free, love the floor to ceiling windows, and the view of downtown LA. Common areas like the lobby, the pool, rooftop ping pong tables, etc. all great.

    2. Loved breakfast and dinner at Commissary. And POT. And snacks from the cafe in the lobby. Definitely get the gin n' juice.

    3. Lobby bar is great w/ good drinks. We went on a Thursday and had no problem getting a table, bartenders were friendly and let us borrow some of the giant inflatable balloons decorating the ceiling. And also assisted in escorting an inebriated and overbearing gentleman that was bothering my friend out of the premises. On the weekend itself (Fri + Sat) it gets significantly more busy so I would prefer a weekday night here.

    4. The rice cake nachos may or may not be the best single dish I have eaten in recent history. I have three pictures of them on my phone right now. I have never taken three pictures of anything in a row ever before. Not even of the Eiffel Tower. Ok possibly of my cat.

    5. My friend is a huge Roy Choi fan and she ended up running into him twice and he posed for a picture and was very friendly. Also liked her Instagram picture. Life is exciting.

    6. Great service and very friendly personnel too. Everyone from the hotel employees at the front desk, the bartenders, servers at Commissary, valet etc. were very cordial and welcoming. The valet told us we had just missed Beyonce (she had come in to Commissary the previous day). This was very upsetting but ultimately ok because I'll definitely be back.

    Went here when I was in LA and this place seemed so crowded. Did not like the layout of the place.

    Music was good though!

    Umm.. Yea. This place is... r a t c h e t.

    Parking:

    Probably easiest to valet park if you don't want to get your car keyed. Ktown is sketchy like that.

    Service:

    You have to wait forever to get drinks because the bartenders here are super busy. This place I packed during the weekend because there is no cover.

    Drink:

    Average.

    They start blasting hip hop music around 12am and all these drunk couples start dancing like there is nobody watching. Keep in mind that there is no dancing stage here so they just start dancing in front of the tables, hallways and even in front of the bakery stands at the entrance. It's fun to hang out if you have a big group of friends but if I were to stay here during my trip...I would NOT like it.

    I wouldn't stay here.

    Stayed here on a Saturday night due to business in town. Checked in without any issues around 3PM.  Hotel was cleaned and greeted nicely during valet.  There is a $35.00 valet charge for over night parking. Where else you going to park!!!  Rooms were decent and stayed on the busy city side.  $60.00 upgrade room if you want Hollywood hills. Over all it was a nice decent stay.  I wouldn't pay $300 but the price from PRICELINE I wouldn't mind staying here again.

    FYI....Saturday night is also party night at this hotel....

    Of the 3 different occasions that I've been here to drink, I've never been disappointed. The root of the problem is- you come in with the same expectations and come out with the same experiences. Also, it does get old much quicker than other drinking places I've been to. I've never thought it would be such a popular hangout spot, amongst Asians. More so, Koreans.

    The drinks are mediocre, the bartenders are there to work and not to make your experience there more enjoyable. If you tip well, they're after you. If you don't, then there's is not much to expect. The problem is I don't even remember what music they play there. Hence, don't go here for the music. Also, not the place to be if you bring a date. And if you come with a bunch of guys, expect to walk out with a bunch of guys. If you don't have a pair of pants to walk up to strangers, least to say, you won't have that great of a time here. But you still make the best of it with the people you are with.

    It's a different vibe here, it's not bad but it's hard to make any long term friends here.

    Trendy hotel, wifey booked the hotel so I had no idea what it would look like, but I was pleasantly surprised at how nice it was.  Was here for a friend's wedding nearby, so we didn't stay in the hotel much other than to sleep.
    Capped off the late night with a dirty dog from the cart outside at about 2am, so bad and good at the same time.

    This review is for the bar area of the Line Hotel. I got the recommendation to come here for a drink from some random people I broke the ice with at Normandy Club 2 blocks down the road. The Line Hotel has a huge lobby with a bar area to cater to the patrons that come through. I came through because I heard it was a hype party spot but when I came through, it was very cliquey and dry. I ordered a beer and made my way out of the hotel lobby.

    The funny thing is the Line Hotel seem to be operating like a club/lounge because you had to go through bouncers and you even get a stamp for re-entry. I was confused when I walked through because everyone was in clubbing clothes but there was no music and vibes felt weak. I think it'll be a good place to grab a beer with coworkers for happy hour. Maybe I was there too early because there wasn't any mingling going on and the area was super spacious.

    This could be your first pit stop before going to dinner or going out but definitely not somewhere you would end up at the end of your night. Walk 2-3 blocks down the road and you have better party options. I read other yelp reviews and they say the lobby turns into the night club but I didn't see it happen when I was there around 11. So I'm a little skeptical on this whole nightclub situation.

    Location is the only reason to stay here.  You are within walking distance of pretty much everything in K-Town.  If you are coming here w/ a family you might not be happy.  If you are in a partying crew, this place isn't that bad.

    PROS:
    -Location is awesome.  The Hotel has a solid lobby bar w/ premium cocktails.  They also have a speakeasy bar just downstairs around the corner (club 183 or something, made by the Houson Brothers).  Lots of restaurants & lounges around the area to check out too all w/in walking distance.

    CONS:
    -Pricey.
    -Hotel AC sucks.  Even though AC is on the temperature is always stuck at 75.  No ventilation.
    -All rooms are made of concrete walls too.  It kind of feels like you are in a prison.
    -Rooms are pretty tiny.
    -EXTREMELY noisy at night.  The lobby turns into a club at night.
    -The smells of the restaurant seep into the hotel rooms.  All those KBBQ places around man.
    -Bathroom doors suck.  It got jammed on us and we couldn't close the bathroom door.  Don't ask.

    TIPS:
    -Vallet parking - $30

    I did not stay at the Line Hotel, but I did come here to have some fun. Their lobby bar, at night.....happens to turn into a night club of some sorts. They check ID out in the front before entering, and there is a dance floor in front of the bar, or I guess the people turn it into a dance floor with some great music playing. The bar is fully stocked and the bartenders are quick with their drink handles.

    The crowd here was very mixed even though it was in KTown, which is definitely a plus, and they have an outside area that is directly next to the sidewalk, so watch out for them dirty dog sellers cause you are going to be smelling that all night.....and cigarette smoke of course. The dance floor is a good size and it isn't hard to navigate through, there are also tables still around, not sure if they are exclusively for table service or for anyone to lounge on. There is one bar area of course.

    The Line Hotel in LA's Koreatown is becoming a beacon for its culturally rich surroundings.

    A 388-room collaborative project spearheaded by the Sydell Group, The Line manages to be both expansive and intimate. Guests might mingle over cocktails in the boothy Pot Lobby Bar or unwind in rooms that feature floor to ceiling windows and the work of local artists.

    What's Cool:
    -The Lobby cafe, where breakfast pizzas and bingsu (Korean shaved ice) are among the menu items.
    -Pot, a restaurant serving remixed Korean favorites.
    -Poketo, the hotel's meticulously curated gift shop.
    -Speek, a midcentury lounge helmed by nightlife impresarios Jonnie and Mark Houston, was expected to open soon.

    What's Not:
    Because of the popularity of the drinks and DJ beats served up at Pot Lobby Bar, the hotel foyer can feel more like a club than a check in spot, especially on Friday and Saturday nights.

    Take Note:
    The Line's location makes it an ideal jumping off point for sightseers hoping to avoid the freeways. Dodger Stadium, Griffith Park and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art are less than five miles away by surface streets.

    Details:
    Rates start at $240.

    Ohh The Line hotel...such a nice place to stay but the bass from the music in the lobby and traffic outside was very annoying. We stayed on the 7th floor facing the street of Wilshire, which I should have requested the "mountain" view. As of what I saw on Yelp. The room was small, but enough in size to fit two people. The bed was not that comfortable at all! I'm guessing the other Yelpers that noted the bed being confortable, probably stayed when the hotel was brand new. The décor is very modern and pretty hip, which I thought gave this hotel some character. The location was very central with a 24 hour fitness about 4 blocks away!

    I would stay here again, just because the hotel was nice in itself. But the noise was kinda hard to sleep to, so I recommend drinking before you go to bed so you can just pass the F out!

    P.s. Valet parking is 32.50/day (I think)

    This is my third time staying at the LINE in the past two weeks. I now consider this hotel my home away from home, which is great because it's way nicer than my actual home.

    THE STAFF
    Friendly. Approachable. Genuine. Good looking. Call me shallow if you will, but it's nice to have interactions with people who actually take care of themselves.
    They also remember you when you return and ask how your day was. The bellmen, desk staff, pool servers, POT cafe employees, and managers alway always always make a point to acknowledge you AND make sure that you are taken care of. My air conditioning was acting a little funny and within 5 minutes they had someone in my room fixing the problem.

    THE LOBBY
    Hot. Good hot. Sick decor. Chill vibe.

    THE ROOMS
    Hip AND relaxing (if that makes sense). Concrete style walls. A full wall of window. Urban city style. POWER OUTLETS EVERYWHERE. Stocked mini bar. Kimono and slippers. CLEAN. My favorite type of down comforter. You can hear outside noise but I'm ok with that. It's a Reminder that you are IN A MAJOR U.S. CITY.
    THE SUITES are BEAUTIFUL!! You can fit three people in the bathtub, while reading a complimentary copy of Roy Choi's book "LA Son".

    What I have noticed are hidden service charges added to many of my orders. For example a room service order had THREE different charges other than the food; a $3 service charge, a $3 delivery fee and a 15% room service fee. $33 for 2coffee and 2croissant almost made me jump out the window, but that's the price I pay for being lazy. And I must say that the actual delivery was quite delightful. They gave me jam
    And honey for daaaaaays.
    Parking is $35 a night. I had like 7 minutes of sticker shock but then I got over it.

    This hotel is young, hip, and has good energy. This is not a double tree. You won't find your grandparents staying here Before their cruise, Altho I can picture my
    Mom staying here and pretending she's Paris Hilton all week long and saying things like "oh Alexa this is Fabulooooous".

    I'm just gonna say it. Line....I love you.

    Review for the bar

    What's the hype about this stupid place?  People wait on line for over an hour to a place that's only half full and closes at 2am.

    You walk into a place that is 90% dudes. The floor inside is sticky as hell. The bartenders are impatient and doesn't want to make complex drinks. I actually saw one telling a lady he doesn't want to make anymore cocktails for her cause it took too long.

    I feel sorry for the guests staying at this hotel. The music is loud and it sucks.

    After waiting an hour, staying for an hour, we were rushed out the door by security. Place is a waste of time.

    Review for the bar on Friday night:

    1 star because the DJ tonight with the glasses sucked. He was playing music I've never heard of and hard to dance to. Even after many people went up to him to request for other songs. Seriously no one is dancing. I begged my friends to come tonight (they dislike this place) because I always have fun here but tonight was bad and none of my friends had fun. I'll stick to coming here on Saturdays when DJ Zo plays.
