Unusual but a lot of fun

I'm probably a bit older than the typical Standard resident, it is clearly targeted at the young... See full review

Hip hostel ?!?

Came down to LA to visit friends for the weekend and booked this hotel using United miles, luckily I did not have to pay for this place as I would not stay here again. The rooms are stark, bathrooms not functional - clear glass from shower next to bed (awkward), non smoking room smelled like smoke/pot, the pool is a free for all and anyone can use it before 7pm really?!? Was staying upstairs and went to the pool and the security guard wouldn't let guests in unless they had a wristband, had to go out by valet to get one, way to treat guests. If you want a chill hotel that treats there guests well then this is not the hotel for you. This place strives to be a hip hotel but really is a cheap hostel!

Comfort at its best!

This hotel was absolutely beautiful, and the staff was amazing. The ping pong room and rooftop bar/pool was so relaxing and the view was amazing. The only thing wrong was the location. Coming from Chicago, which has an amazing very popular downtown location, I thought downtown LA would be the same, but it was average. (this was a lack of research on my part) but overall this hotel was amazing.

Modern and trendy hotel

I stayed at the Huge room with a long size bed. This room was on the 12th floor and we had a great view! The Standard also has pool parties on the rooftop pool, and with my room I received free admission! Such nice front desk staff! Amazing place to stay! Highly recommend it!

The Standard

The roof top at The Standard was so beautiful. Great view/atmosphere/pool. The rooms were ok. The shower is in the room with only glass separating the shower from the room. This is a problem if you are staying with family and want privacy. Kind of inconvenient. But I will return to the roof top for sure. The food is really good too!

Weekend get-away

My husband and I, along with a couple of friends absolutely loved the hotel!! the room was perfect..although we had booked a double bed and were given a single king size bed..because they did not have our room available! The rooftop pool is amazing..we will definitely stay here next time!!
