There’s a reason you’ll find Austin near the top of nearly every fastest growing cities list. The liberal bastion in the middle of Texas that’s worked tirelessly to Keep itself Weird is exceedingly livable, boasting some of the county’s greatest restaurants and food trucks, mouthwatering BBQ, an unmatched music scene, heaps of natural beauty, and a booming tech industry. It’s also the perfect place to spend a long weekend, particularly since you have your pick of over a dozen new hotels that’ve opened there since 2013. However, if you’re looking for one that shines a bit brighter than all of the others, you’ll want to look into booking a room at The Line Austin.
The Line Austin, which opened in 2018, sits smack in the center of the city in a landmark mid-century modern building that first opened in the '60s. And while it's been completely and expertly overhauled with a spacious, modern vibe, it hasn't compromised at all on its greatest assets: unparalleled views of Congress Bridge, Lady Bird Lake, and the city skyline itself. The 428-room property is the latest offering from the team behind the exceedingly popular Line Los Angeles and Line DC, each of which have become hotspots in their own right for both locals and visitors alike. So, whether you're looking to escape to ATX for a long weekend, or already live there want to treat yourself to a mini staycation, here's what you should know about the city's most recent standout hotel.
