Hotel The LINE, Austin

Expert reviews

CN Traveler review:

“The LINE is big. Texan-style big. We are talking 428 rooms big. Though with Sydell’s knack for transforming spaces into landmarks of urban sophistication, it comes off as intimate and considered. The biggest selling point is location. The LINE is in the heart of downtown.”

Featured in CN Traveler’s Best New Hotels of 2019.

Telegraph review:

“The vibe at Austin’s LINE Hotel is Mad Men transported into the contemporary art scene. From arrival at the striking porte-cochère at the front of the property reveals a restored concrete brutalist structure leading into the open lobby sets the stage for drama.”

Nice hotel but not worth the price.

Room was nice, but small. Vera Cruz was a nice place for lunch.

Onsite restaurant was closed my entire stay. Too expensive for what you received. You could not see the river from the pool as advertised.


19 June 2023

Very good

17 June 2023

It met our needs for the night.

Hip fun hotel.

I love thé Line. My go to for Austin. It’s fun and the lattes and pool are great. Taco bar with great margaritas on premises. And a great view of lake and easy access to downtown and trail.

It’s great. What’s not to like?

Super Choice for Downtown Austin

Terrific location, fabulous room with floor-to-ceiling windows looking out on the river, chic and comfortable seating area, comfortable bed, cool bathroom.


7 June 2023


The location was perfect for us. The view from the room was great (Lake view). The atmosphere of the hotel was fun. The taco shop is out of this world.

Sorry to say the mattress was not comfortable. Note to management: Time for an upgrade. It would have been nice to have two solid chairs in the room. Plumbing a little slow, but eventually it all went through. All small things for us - we would return.

Convenient, everything needed is in hotel, and everything else is walking distance

Bed wasn't too comfy


11 May 2023

Good hotel and good location.

Had breakfast in room - very good.

Reception staff were very friendly and helpful, but their lack of knowledge of local restaurants and places to visit was surprising.


5 May 2023

lovely but not worth the price

location, taco shop, pool, ambience

uncomfortable beds, hallway, elevator decor poor, light too dim in bathrooms


3 May 2023

Very good

Location was great

The 450 USD hold on top of the regular price - what is this for? does not make sense as you pay at the restaurants and this is a huge amount for just a three day stay.


1 May 2023

Very good

Stunning views of the river, if you can, get a view that looks out that way! Very modern, young, funky, and general Austin-vibe, absolutely loved the design. The coffee and taco truck located inside the building are top notch, definitely worth the wait.


16 April 2023

Would def stay here again

Great location, excellent decor, spectacular view, friendly staff.


15 April 2023

Very good

The property is not well insulated and the traffic noise kept us awake.


13 April 2023

4 April 2023

A very convenient place.

- the staff was very friendly - room clean and tidy - location is perfect

nothing but the lobby is crowded most of the time


3 April 2023

Very good

I like how the rooms and lobby look.

The rooms are always so hot when I stay there and they take a very long time to cool down.


28 March 2023

Very good


quirky furniture in room was not comfortable. bed was comfortable though


26 March 2023


Good location . Helpful staff


2 March 2023

A pleasant venue with a great view of the lake.

Location, staff and P6.

One of the east elevators was out of service.


20 February 2023

Debatable whether I’d stay again.

Location, comfortable room

Extra charges After I had paid for pool/gym. Very deceptive pricing practices. Elevators broken and staff very cold.


19 February 2023

Rating this hotel is tricky because in some ways it’s perfect, but in others it really disappoints.

The location is perfect - right in downtown by the water. The in hotel coffee shop and taco restaurant are amazing and a huge plus. The staff was very kind.

The room’s climate control seemed to be broken, making it either too cold or too hot, with no way of adjusting it. The humidity of the room was out of control as well. Housekeeping kept taking the used washcloths and not replacing them, and sometimes forgot to replace the toilet paper.


12 February 2023

Hip happening hotel in the perfect downtown location with service that did not match.

The hotel was hip and definitely a popular place for gathering people. The decor provided a sense of fun and chic. The location of the hotel was perfect for being downtown for dinner and music as well as having direct access to the path along the lake. The P6 Bar was outstanding with great drinks and food as well as a comfortable spot with great views. Our lake bridge view room was one of the best rooms we have stayed in with lots of space and amazing views of the bustle below.

The valet staff was hit and miss. Is there a rule of no longer helping with luggage. Upon arrival and departure we handled our own suitcases. What's with that? We had money ready to tip the valet when we were leaving but he basically took his time getting our car to us and then didn't even lift a finger to help with our bags. Housekeeping needs to work on being more consistent with a checkoff list. Coffee cups were missing after one service then we were missing one face towel and a hand towel. We were given water when we arrived and housekeeping took my bottle that still had water in it. Upon arrival we had a makeup towel and then the rest of the stay we never got another one. The Kleenex box was empty and it was never replaced.

Great location, super comfy bed.

Excellent location - easy walk to the trail, bars, restaurants. Bed is super comfortable. Beautiful views in both city side and lake side.

The strange pendant light and chair combination in the corner of our room.


3 February 2023

Very pleased with the room, the view, and the staff

It is a great location in the heart of Austin, From the back of the hotel one can go down straight to the riverwalk. All amenities are nearby and a very walkable neighborhood.

Wish there was a self-park option.
