A newcomer to DC, The Line can be best described as elegant with a hint of quirkiness. The lobby and restaurant portion of the hotel are housed in what was formerly a neoclassical church. The high ceilings and unique furnishings (organ pipes repurposed as a large chandelier hangs from the ceiling) make for a delightfully unconventional space to sip coffee, have a strong beverage, or enjoy dinner with an heartening companion.
The rooms, though housed in the newly constructed part of the property, abandon the neutral uniformity of the chains in favor of chic design. Like the neighborhood it occupies the surrounding inspires the pursuit of passions and creativity.
