Setting

Arty Adams Morgan

Let former Neoclassical church the Line DC make you a believer with its modern interiors, four restaurants and beats-pumping independent radio station. Now a temple to the arts, this hip hub welcoming worshippers of the hotel holy trinity – design, food and music – into its hallowed halls. Just outside, the millennial-friendly Adams Morgan district tempts with pop-up restaurants, just-opened bars and well-loved flea markets. Now to that, we’ll say amen…

Our favourite rooms

It’s hard to pick just one room as our favourite: each has been meticulously curated, furnished with Persian rugs, burnished brass light-fittings and vintage furniture lovingly sourced from local flea markets. Every room has a miniature library stocked with hand-picked tomes, plus up to 14 pieces of original artwork, from paintings to old-school photographs. If we had to choose (go on, you’ve twisted our arm), we’d favour any of the higher-floor rooms for their Instagram-worthy views, or the Monument View Master Suite for its private, panoramic terrace.

Packing tips

Pack a pair of headphones for tuning in to Full Service Radio, and something suitably regal for lobby-lounging – this is a Neoclassical church, after all.

Also

Please note that the hotel’s common areas are wheelchair-accessible, but the rooms aren’t.

Pet‐friendly

Doggies and moggies are welcome at the Line free of charge; just let the hotel know in advance when booking. See more pet-friendly hotels in Washington DC.

Children

Little ones are welcome, but there’s not much to entertain children – this hotel’s best suited to you and your beloved. The hotel can provide baby cots, changing mats, highchairs and socket covers on request.

Food and Drink

Top Table

Well there are quite a few to pick from… We’d go for one of the balcony tables at No Goodbyes.

Dress Code

Match the menus in understated American style (blue jeans and blazers) with a soupçon of Asian flair through monochrome and minimal lines.

Hotel restaurant

Gourmandes, listen up: the Line has you covered with an array of impressive options. Head to No Goodbyes, where chef Opie Crooks hand-picks ingredients from local Chesapeake Bay vendors to curate a delectable dinner menu; start with tartar-dipped salt and vinegar catfish lettuce wraps, before moving on to ember roasted trout cooked in garlic butter, served with crab rice and caviar. No Goodbyes also does an all-American breakfast of fried chicken and honey waffles, as well as lighter options including a yoghurt parfait with local berries. For lunch, sample some crab-spiced chips and hush doggies with honey mustard. Or, if you’re in a rush, head to the Coffee Shop to grab a drink and a pastry freshly made by in-house expert Alicia Wang.

Hotel bar

No Goodbyes has a bar that pulls together a curated menu of American-inspired cocktails, beers and wines. Try a Clooney Tunes, made with Mexican mezcal, tequila and montenegro; or sample something new with a Trail Mixer, an impressive concoction of bourbon, orgeat syrup, lime and a cream sherry float.

Address
Line DC
1770 Euclid Street NW
Washington
20009
United States

Situated in the buzzing Adams Morgan neighbourhood, the Line DC takes pole position on leafy Euclid Street, a half-hour stroll from the White House.

Planes

The nearest airport is Ronald Reagan National, six miles (20 minutes’ drive) from the hotel. The airport operates flights to New York, Miami and Los Angeles. Dulles International Airport is an hour away by car; flights arrive here from major destinations around the world. The hotel can organise transfers from both for around US$143 one-way from Ronald Reagan National and US$198 from Dulles International. Flights to both airports can be organised by the Smith24 Travel team.

Trains

Union Station (a 15-minute drive from the hotel) is a major rail hub along the Eastern Seaboard for Amtrak. It is also a stop on Maryland’s regional MARC train, which travels to Baltimore.

Automobiles

You’ll need to get an International Driver’s Permit to hire a car in the US, but driving in Washington DC is notoriously difficult in any case, due to the city’s complicated grid of one-way streets. You’re better off hailing cabs, taking public transport, walking or cycling. If you do arrive by car, valet parking is available onsite for $54 a day.

Other

You’ll feel you know Washington’s Metro well by the time you check out; not least because the the Line’s room decor – in red, blue, yellow and green – corresponds with the route map’s colours. Aside from trendsetting, the Metro is also a zippy and generally reliable way of getting around the city.

Worth getting out of bed for

As its capital city, Washington DC is the home of American democracy: spend a few politically-minded hours examining the Constitution, Declaration of Independence and other historic documents at the National Archives, go for a tour of the Capitol and act out your favourite scenes from Homeland with the White House as a backdrop. The Washington Monument is a must-see (well, the city is named after this most famous of presidents, after all), as are the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials. Pop into the various Smithsonian museums to see treasures such as the Hope Diamond, the Spirit of Saint Louis and Julia Child’s kitchen. Closer to the hotel, take a turn around the Phillips Collection for an impressive array of Impressionist art – including Renoir’s Luncheon of the Boating Party – in a converted Dupont Circle mansion. Be sure to visit the Collection’s Rothko Room, a tiny space lined with the painter’s works. If you’ve been seduced by the views from your hotel room, visit the main event: the 18th-century Washington National Cathedral is the second-largest in the US, and well worth a trip for its magnificent stained-glass windows. While you’re in the Adams Morgan neighbourhood, swing by local institution Idle Time Books, which is full of second-hand and out-of-print reads. Browse the knick-knack and vintage shops on the surrounding streets; Urban Dwell is a particular favourite on the Columbia Road, and sells home decor, clothes and kitsch accessories.

Local restaurants

You’re spoilt for choice at the Line, but it would be criminal not to sample some of the local eateries: try Mintwood Place just down the road, a French-American, farmhouse-style tavern serving on-point roasted duck, hangar steak and a divinely creamy mushroom risotto. A hip bistro with a Caribbean influence, Tail Up Goat on Adams Mill Road is a joyful joint with an adventurous menu of salt-roasted beets, whey-braised goat and lamb ribs. Nose around the Dupont Circle for more great restaurants, including Komi, a seriously slick hub that’s in-demand for good reason: have the 12-dish tasting menu, which includes their many famous seafood creations.

Local cafés

If you’re into simple, well-made coffee without the pompous extras, you’ll find yourself in heaven at Tryst, a city-centre coffee bar that doesn’t take itself too seriously. Curl up on a printed chesterfield with a steaming hot latte, and stay here from brunch (the buttermilk waffles are write-home-about good) until happy hour (anyone for a ‘painkiller’ cocktail?).

Local bars

Whisky (and whiskey) fans should head straight to the Jack Rose Dining Saloon, where the walls are lined with more than 2,000 bottles of the amber distillate. They serve food too, so you could hole up here long enough to sample every vintage (well, nearly).
