About our Brand

More than a group of hotels, The LINE is a creative community built around a sense of discovery - an exploration of a building, a neighborhood, and a culture. From Koreatown in LA to Adams Morgan in DC to downtown Austin, each property is architecturally interesting and chosen for its location in emerging neighborhoods in compelling cities. LINE hotels are both reflective and responsive- shaped by the communities they are part of while also contributing something new to those places. LINE properties are a collaboration of the best local and out-of-town talent in design, food and beverage, arts and culture.

Opening in Fall of 2022, the LINE SF is a kinetic intersection where SoMa, Union Square, and the Tenderloin converge. Our endeavor is to reflect the neighborhood, culture, and spirit of the city by offering a food and beverage program devoted to the bountiful ingredients offered in the Bay Area region.
