Strictly Scuttlebutt But: Will The Line Hotel (and restaurants) Be Coming Back? Manager says: “we are working on plans to reopen The LINE DC.”

1780 Columbia Road, NW

Update from The Line DC’s manager:

“I would like to assure everyone that we are working on plans to reopen The LINE DC. We have been working diligently to develop the new protocols to look after the well being of our Employees & Guests when we open. Our sister hotel The LINE Austin will reopen May 21st as Texas has lifted the state’s stay at home order, and there are plans for The LINE DC to follow. We are respecting the DC Mayor ‘s orders and directions.
Also, I would like to assure our Neighbors that the Hotel Operation has always been compliant, and has exceeded the 51/51 hiring commitment, as certified by DOES. We have over 100 employees that live in Ward 1 (including myself) that we very much want to see back at work.
Thank you for your concern and for your support, it is most appreciated by all of us that are part of The LINE DC.

Ed. Note: The Line opened up after much anticipation and not without controversy in 2017. The Line DC is also home to restaurants, A Rake’s Progress, Brothers And Sisters and Spoken English.

If true this would be devastating on many levels. We will be keeping a very close eye on this, for once I’m very much hoping a previously accurate tipster is wrong.

A tipster writes: “word on the street is The Line is completely closing for good.”

The Line DC’s website still says: “In light of the current COVID-19 pandemic, all LINE Hotels are closed to the public including hotel rooms and all restaurants and bars.

Please check back here or on Instagram at @thelinehotel for re-opening updates and other information as things evolve.”
