Trendy L.A. landmark is a downtown home for exploring the city

This hotel really does set the standard for "urban cool" in L.A. Cutting-edge design and a dynamic vibe fill every inch of the hotel, from the swank lobby to the ultra-stylish rooms. Guests are dazzled by the super-cool Rooftop Bar, trendy 24/7 brasserie, and sexy, artful decor. Los Angeles cultural and recreational destinations, such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, the Museum of Contemporary Art, The Staples Center and more are just blocks away.

Highlights
  • Rooftop Bar offers spectacular downtown views and chic design
  • Stylish guest rooms with glass-encased showers and platform beds
  • Ultra-convenient downtown location near major cultural destinations

The grand lobby's dazzling 125-foot fuchsia Omnibus sofa by designer Vladimir Kagan is only one detail in the visual feasts that fill this hotel.

Chic look, terrible service

Yes, the decor is hip and the rooftop bar is fun if you're into that scene. BUT the service is by far the worst I've experienced at any hotel. No one helped us with our bags as we lugged them from the parking lot through crowds of drunk bar goers to the front desk to check in. There was no courtesy parking during the checkin as in most hotels. Housekeeping was problematic every day. One day they did not come at all. On the other days, soaps, towels and glasses were never replaced. When these items were requested, they took hours to come and staff were unapologetic. Still, the hotel is right near the metro, has free wifi, and has it's own club scene which is nice.

Not for the shy

A friend of mine and I stayed at this hotel for the excellent prices and prime location for the LA Marathon. It was a great experience! The valet were super friendly and they were anticipating my arrival. Walking into the hotel, I got the impression that the hotel was a lounge you'd find at an upscale bar or club. Checking in was easy and their theme is cute with the "Hello! My name is ..." cards. The room was cozy and cute. The shower was a glass case for the rest of the room to see. The bed was very comfortable. I have no complaints and the service was excellent! I would definitely stay here again.

Since we traveled during March Madness, we found a local sports bar called Big Wangs and met up with some friends and watched the games on their numerous TVs. Great food (especially the burger) and great prices. Not far from the hotel at all.

Great Service, Loud Atmosphere

Standard is very trendy. Rooftop bar is awesome. You get two passes to go to the bar if you stay with the hotel, which is nice. Excellent toiletries and amenities. Only downside is that the hotel is a total party zone so don't be surprised to be surrounded by drunken neighbors in the middle of the night.

Abulously quirky and interesting

The Standard was actually a great choice for a hotel! It's fabulously quirky and interesting. Not the kind of place that I'd stay with my wife and kids (the shower walls were transparent glass), but definitely memorable when it's just me.

Upbeat place but I did not think to request a non-smoking floor and was too exhausted with a late-night arrival to request a change. Very pleasant and helpful desk attendant.
