A True Texas Good Time | The LINE Austin

THE VIBE:  Austin, Texas is quickly becoming one of the top places to visit in the United States. Known for its booming tech scene, emerging foodie paradise, and amazing art collections, there are many things that make this spot #WorthTravelingFor. Previously home to The Crest Hotel, The LINE Austin has become a legacy in this bustling city. After recently undergoing a redesign by local architect Michael Hsu and LA-based designer Sean Knibb, the space now has a chic and contemporary vibe that is best described as a continuation of the youthful, yet classic vibe that Austin is known for. The LINE is conveniently located in downtown Austin, which means you’re waking up right next to museums like The Blanton and The Contemporary, live shows at the Paramount Theater, or a stroll through the South Congress district.

THE SLEEP: If you’re looking for a solid place to rest your head at night after hitting a honky tonk, pack a bag (take your furry friend too!) and book one of the 428 rooms at The LINE. When we’re not obsessing over the custom artwork by emerging local artists, light fixtures reminiscent of fireflies, or libraries of vintage books on the history of Texas, we’re definitely fawning over the views. Each guestroom at The LINE has floor-to-ceiling windows, with spectacular views of downtown Austin and the serene Town Lake.

TRY IT ON:

THE TASTE: Ever watch cooks whip up delicious meals on Top Chef? Well if you watched season 10, you may see a familiar face while staying at The LINE. Chef Kristen Kish, season 10 winner, has debuted Arlo Grey, the new lakeside restaurant at The LINE. With technique rooted in French and Italian traditions and a nostalgia for dishes from her upbringing, Arlo Grey certainly does not disappoint. If you’re looking for a place to help the good times flow, head over to Dean’s One Trick Pony and try the disco fries with their signature drink, The Pink Pony. Keep the night going at P6, The LINE’s new rooftop playground. Pink, blue and green hues welcome you to a lush and intimate cocktail experience. Enjoy signature cocktails crafted by Beverage Director Brian Floyd while you soak in the panoramic views of the Austin Skyline and Town Lake. Out all night? Luckily, The LINE has their own Alfred Coffee right in the lobby, so you can live out the mantra, “But first, coffee.”

THE TONE: Spruce up your wellness routine during your stay at The LINE. Spend some time exercising at the 24-hour fitness studio, which is complete with full body exercise equipment and cardio machines. If you’re more of a group fitness person, give one of LINE’s wellness classes a try.  When you’re done hitting the gym, take advantage of The LINE’s partnership with Priority; this dynamic duo offers guests complimentary bike rentals, so you can explore downtown Austin while getting in a workout. If the water is calling your name, The LINE also has a gorgeous lakeside infinity pool; so peaceful you’ll forget there’s a bustling city on the other side of the trees.
