The Line Hotel

Rooms with concrete-patterned wallpaper, funky original art and floor-to-ceiling windows look over the pool and onto the Wilshire / Normandie Metro station. This hip hotel in a midcentury building is your gateway to Koreatown.

Intricate design, eclectic free spirit, and incredible views help define the level of artistic luxury The Line offers to any guest. It stands in the bustle of always-interesting Koreatown, Los Angeles’s increasingly popular and culturally rich 24-hour neighborhood.

Check in and indulge in a cocktail and a bite from the commissary, lounge by the pool to catch the sunset over Wilshire, and be sure to scope out the hidden ’80s-themed bar, Break Room 86, to channel your inner Marty McFly — this place really gets any night moving.

Before you mosey up the street to The Normandie Club & Walker Inn for the best cocktails in Los Angeles, gorge yourself on some sizzling Korean BBQ from Kang-Ho-Dong Baekjeong in the Zion Market. Don’t be scared to grab the mic and belt out some Bon Jovi at Brass Monkey, the best karaoke dive bar around.

The Line is the ideal place to find shelter after a Los Angeles night, in one of the city’s most interesting neighborhoods. Check in, lay by the pool, and indulge in its endless spoils.
