Quick Get Away

Standard is a great hotel. It lives up to the hype. Very private and quiet rooms. Great bed and high quality sheets! Very clean rooms and bathrooms. Room lighting is flexible: you can make it dim, sexy, moody or focused. Room service is priced a bit high though but the staff and service was excellent. If you want to save some money park your car a few blocks away from the hotel there are better deals for parking than the standard parking lot (rip off). Also there is a Famima (its like a 7-11) a block or two away open 24 hours. The neighborhood is safe to walk around.

Very unique with a fantastic view

My coworkers and I stayed while attending an event at the Convention Center. I arrived around 9am and I was welcomed but two very friendly staff members and I was able to check in to my room straight away. Very hip and trendy indeed and almost retro. After the event and long day we spent the evening at one of the coolest spots in Downtown, on the ROOF! The lounge was amazing with the mixed atomosphere, fireplace and water beds next to the pool! We had an amazing time and for a reasonable price. I will recommend the Standard Downtown LA to all of my friends. Rooms were great, beds were incredibly comfortable and the bubble bath in the oversized tub similar to the size of a single bed, next to the window was quite memorable. The Mini Bar and supplies were fun to check out too! Thank you for a fabulous weekend.

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!

Fancy and Fun

Not for children but great location, close to everything. The lobby is beautiful and they have live bands. The staff was very accommodating. The roof top is a wonderful idea. You can swim, chill, or party all on the roof. The bathroom is HUGE which is great for sharing a space. You can party in the hotel either on the roof of lobby and safely walk back to your room. Drinking and driving is a nonissue. One night we had a noise problem, however the hotel took care of it immediately with no questions asked. I would most certainly stay there again. I also would like to check out this hotel in other cities.

Fantastic service and great staff

Even though it's a hip hotel, the staff are not full of themselves. Stayed four nights, in town for a wedding. We had five rooms and lots of service requests - concierge, housekeeping, pool bar, etc. Everyone was just fantastic - [...] the rooftop bar/pool manager, [...] at the front desk, the long-haired surfer dude at the valet station.

The Pantry, at 9th and something, an LA institution has very cheap, filling, great tasting breakfasts. Probably great for other meals too. $4.85 for pancakes and coffee w/refills. Breakfast for 4 at the Pantry = $32, Breakfast for 6 at the hotel = $120.

had a good time

had a smoking room top floor with a brilliant view....open and very comfortable bed....compared to what i have paid 120 $ at other places the extra 80$ for the night here was well worth it.....WELL worth it. its a trendy spot with hipsters and a more party theme so if your looking for like a relax spot id say no otherwise it was bang on

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.
