Adams Morgan is a really eclectic DC neighborhood. It’s gone through many stages, but right now it’s full of diverse businesses offering things that range from coffee to three-course dinners and live music. The LINE Hotel DC recently opened and has been a hit – especially with their restaurant and cafe names, like The Cup We All Race 4.
The LINE Hotel is built into a 110-year old church with majestic steps and a chandelier made out of the church’s organ pipes. The huge windows let light into the large lobby, and the walkway to the hotel rooms have church pews you can sit on. If you don’t go for something to eat or drink, definitely step inside to at least see it.
Each of the three restaurants inside are unique and trendy, ranging from local DC fare to multicultural dishes. I went to Brothers and Sisters for Restaurant Week (which I highly recommend), but my first time there was at the cafe. They were doing a free breakfast at the hotel for anyone to join, serving coffee and fresh pastries.
It was incredibly relaxing to walk over to the hotel before work. I sat on the balcony seating area and was able to look down into the lobby. It really doesn’t look like a lobby; it’s designed to be more like a lounge. At night, they even have a DJ. The pastries and coffee were delicious, too, and the staff are very friendly.
