Established at the edge of downtown Austin, Texas, next to the Colorado River, the LINE Austin, a luxury hotel which opened its doors in June, 2018, has the privilege of enjoying not one, but two spectacular views: an friendly vista of the gleaming skyscrapers and wide avenues of the city centre and a scenery of the lush landscape of Lady Bird Lake.
Sydell Group, who developed the property as part of their chain of trendy boutique hotels that also includes two additional outposts in Los Angeles’ Koreatown and Washington D.C., took full use of the building’s place, as well as its modernist mid-century design, to create a venue of modern sophistication that embraces both its surroundings and the city’s vibrant art scene.
Great care was thus taken by Los Angeles-based interior designer Sean Knibb and local architect Michael Hsu during the complete restoration in order to preserve the luxury hotel’s original character of classic modernism while also imbuing a fresh breath of modernity in tune with its surroundings.
The LINE Austin is a community collaboration inspired by the juxtaposition of downtown’s energy and the natural beauty of Town Lake. Designer Sean Knibb and architect Michael Hsu have created a distinctive Austin experience, anchored by three world-class restaurants from Sydell Group and an artist residency program highlighting emerging local artists and community partners. The LINE Austin luxury hotel hosts unique events rooted in the neighborhood that bring locals and travelers together.
The rooms and suites at the LINE Austin were designed for comfort. From beds, you’ll never want to leave and minibars that satisfy your cravings day or night to custom artwork by emerging local artists, light fixtures reminiscent of fireflies, libraries of vintage books on Texas and more, this is the place for indoorsy and outdoorsy types alike.
