Not What You'd Expect in Downtown LA

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 11, 2008

Its a chic, trendy locale that totally does not fit in with its surroundings in downtown LA. Great place to hang out poolside on the roof on a warm summer night and rather than deal with the red velvet rope and hassle to get into the club, just get a room! Totally well priced - usually under $175/night, which is great for an upscale venue like this.

Unique Quality: This place is very minimalist and funky - the showers are clear glass and look into the room, so best if you're very comfortable staying with anyone else who may be sharing with you as privacy is limited to say the least. When you're in the restroom on the rooftop bar, guys and girls share the sink so you can play hand-sies with strangers!

Its definitely an experience! Enjoy!

Trendy Treat

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on March 16, 2008

First staying at the Standard in Miami Beach, when I was transferred to SoCal I definately wanted to checks out this Andre' Balazs creation. Unimpressed witht he Hollywood location, the L.A. Standard actually topped the South Beach Creation. The lobby was ultra chic, with very sexy staff and guests. The check-in was was smooth and the room service was very quick, even at 2AM! Aside from all the coolsculptures and trendy design, the rooftop is the focus of this party-hotel. I LOVE the rooftop scene here. If you stay here, you get in, no questions asked, while if you don't- you might be waiting ahile to get up to the rooftop.

Unique Quality: The rooftop scene. The gorgeous pool. Unequaled in downtown L.A.

Directions: On the corner of Flower and 6th

This is a modern midprice hotel

Unique Quality: The rooftop bar is the scene...happy hour business men from the area. The evening crowd is full of movers and shakers.
It has a pool and places that have waterbeds for laying around in....the night time the dance floor is packed you can see the lights all around the city. It makes for a breathtaking view.

The Standard: Pretty Standard.

When I was in college, we would go to the Standard's rooftop bar quite often. A couple times we stayed here rather than getting an 8 minute cab ride back to school.

Mini bar is good, has mini bottles of premium alcohol like splits of Veuve Cliquot and mini bottles of Patron and Grey Goose.

Unique Quality: The rooms are kind of weird- the beds are essentially mattresses on the floor... the shower is see-through in some of the rooms and is adjacent to the main bedroom.

Good Addition

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on April 11, 2006

Chic but minimalist room, comfortable bed (on raised floor instead of bedsprings) and a shower with a glass wall towards the bedroom. Very functional and pleasant.

Unique Quality: The rooftop bar, which hotel guests get into for free and without waiting.

Directions: Downtown

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on May 25, 2005

was in LA for a recent convention, bought into the hype and booked a room, the room is interesting, but between obnoxious and drunk (how did they get so smashed on $8 cosmos????) bar patrons arguing in the parking lot at 1:30 AM and the crashing of trash into garbage trucks at 4:45 AM it is impossible to ge a good niights sleep at the Standard...and after all isn't that why we stay at an upscale hotel in the first place. when i mentioned the noise situation to the front desk staff they just shrugged their shoulders...and i paid $$$$ for this...never again, a bud stayed at the Hilton Checkers in downtown, much better accomodations and within walking distance of the Standard scene. Suggest booking into the Hilton and walking the 5 minutes to the Standard's roof top bar

Hip and Fun

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 26, 2004

The Standard Downtown is very chic. It's got modern furnishings.

The best part of this hotel, however, is the rooftop bar and lounge. If you're really cool, try swimming in the pool while the wannabes drink around you. The bar has a spectacular view of Downtown LA.

Unique Quality: Oh... see above. The bar is worth going to. It's a hip hangout, though, so if you're not into that, then skip the whole Standard.

The Standard Downtown: Hip and Modern

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on June 7, 2004

The Standard Downtown is the newest version of the very popular hotel on Sunset Blvd., The Standard. I normally would not recommend that visitors to L.A. stay downtown, just because it's a bit far from the major sights. However, this hotel is so chic and fun (not to mention fairly affordable) that I must give it some respect. If you're going to stay downtown, stay at The Standard Downtown.

Like its sister hotel on Sunset Bl., The Standard Downtown is very modern & minimalist, very hip, and a gathering place for L.A. twenty-somethings. The rooms are decently sized and feature low, platform beds, white walls and straight, simple lines throughout. You'll also find CD players, trendy aromatherapy toiletries and large mini-bars. The bathrooms are large and decorated with marble. In the larger rooms, the bathrooms include a sculpture of a giant foot. It's definitely unique.

Be sure to go up to the Rooftop Bar, one of the major reasons this hotel is such a success. The exposed rooftop offers amazing views of the downtown skyline and a wonderful pool. At night, it's frequented by beautiful people who sip martinis and lounge near the outdoor fireplace. The Rooftop Bar also present movie nights from time to time, where films are projected onto a neighboring building and can be watched from the rooftop.

Directions: Located at the corner of S. Flower St and W. 6th St.

Heart of Sunset Strip

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 17, 2003

South Beachish with white deco decor, thumping club/bar, and outdoor pool parties.

Unique Quality: It is in the heart of Sunset strip so one can walk to nearby clubs and bars. This is good for two reasons, one it help eliminate drinking/driving, two parking is a pain. Twenty bucks to park in a public garage if the hotel parking is full or try meter parking which if you can find one ends at the stroke of midnight. Another good reason is that the traffic is no fun and who wants to spend the evening in traffic jams or looking for a parking spot.
