The LINE Hotel

This past weekend we did a little staycation at the LINE Hotel in Los Angeles. The getaway began with a quick trip to Bottega Louie for some macarons followed by a few other short stops for little things, then onto the hotel at 3 p.m. just in time for check in. Once we checked in, we didn't leave the hotel until our 12 p.m. checkout the following day. Everything we needed was right there at our disposal, and I could not have been happier.

We stayed in a studio king, which is slightly larger than the standard. The studios also have views of the Shepard Fairey murals on the hotel walls. The interior of the rooms felt industrial and modern with cement walls and clean lines. Our room had the standard items hotels usual come equipped with like an iron, a blowdryer, a safe and a mini bar, but it also had sleek magazines and commonly needed items (like Tylenol) you could purchase. All of the bath products at the LINE are Baxter of California. Oh and the towels are the plushest towels I've ever used in a hotel. . . maybe even just ever. The window coverings and lighting are all controlled by a panel on the bed frame for those of us who want to turn off the lights without getting out of bed.

After dropping our bags off in our room, we headed straight for the 2nd floor pool. Although the seating at the pool was limited, we managed to find two chairs nestled in the far corner. I can see the pool getting pretty crowded on hot summer Saturdays, fortunately we were there late in the afternoon on a Sunday. The pool attendant was super accommodating and immediately brought us towels and also checked in with us periodically. Greenery climbs up the walls surrounding the pool area and the furniture is clean and modern.
Next to the pool is one of the hotel's restaurants, Commissary. It has both inside and outside seating, but the indoor seating is actually a greenhouse. At check in I was told that this restaurant is ideal for breakfast and brunch, so we ate a late breakfast here on Monday morning (the breakfast burrito was amazing!). I love how the natural light pours into the greenhouse, and thankfully it's subtle enough to take off your sunglasses for your meal. Some of the restaurant tables are set up for communal seating, and I can just imagine killer parties taking place here.

For dinner on Sunday night we headed downstairs to the Korean inspired restaurant, Pot. And since the hotel is in Koreatown, we had to eat some Korean food. The fun cocktails and interesting food make it a perfect spot for dinner. I didn't take any photos because it was dark, and we're trying not to use our phones during dinner, but trust me when I say it was delicious. We tried a variety of items, and had zero complaints.
One thing I love about this hotel is the variety of offerings in the lobby. It has a bar and restaurant, and also a cafe and curated shop all right downstairs. Unfortunately, we didn't have a chance to try the lobby bar, but we did grab coffee at the cafe and peeked inside the shop. The shop, Poketo, is small but the selection is unique and well curated. The best thing about the coffee shop is that they have almond milk. Sure beats Starbucks!
