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. The lobby also includes a conceptual Jenny Holzer art installation, an Alexander Calder-inspired mobile, billiards table, a 15-time zone clock encased in stainless steel, and, of course, a full-service bar and lounge.

What the W tries to be.

This is it. The epitome of trendy. Rooftop pool party, celebrities, 460 sq ft room, modern styling, overstocked mini bar, comfortable bed - I could go on. Was it really worth the price? If it's not out of reach of your checkbook and you're in your early twenties... Yes it was worth it. It really feels like this is what The W models itself after. The W feels far less accessible though.

Quick trip

I flew in and out of LA on a brief stay to attend the 2014 NHL Stanley Cup Final game 2, so I did not spend very much time in the hotel itself other than for sleeping. The hotel is about a 1 mile walk from the Staples Center, so the location was handy. The hotel has a modern, northern Euro hipster vibe (gray and yellow colors, a bed very low to the ground on a platform, etc.). If you have back pain and have a hard time getting in and out of a standard height bed, you would find it hard getting in and out of the bed in the room since it was almost like sleeping at floor level. Staff was very helpful and courteous. As I had a very early flight the next morning (needing to leave at 0430 from the hotel), there was no problems as the hotel desk is staffed 24/7 as well as an attendant to get your rental car. It also has a 24/7 restaurant that serves upscale food.

the perfect location

The Standard in downtown LA is a sleek hotel located just 2 blocks from a subway station. Giving you quick, cheap travel access to most of LA.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

If you want to head to western Hollywood, take the subway to Hollywood and Highland (the walk of fame) and get an Uber personal car to pick you up from there. Its cheaper than a cab and taking the subway shortens the travel distance. The front desk at the hotel is who told me about Uber, which is a fantastic service that runs 24 hours a day.

Great location, some strong positives, some negatives

The location could simply not be improved upon in downtown Los Angeles. It is near good shopping, etc. The room itself was attractive, but "trendy" in an way not designed for comfort. The bed was a mattress and box springs on a 4 inch platform rather than a bed frame, so I would "roll out of bed" as standing up was odd. There was only a single, unpadded plastic chair in the room, which was inadequate. The television is a rather small one. The elevator was S-L-O-W and a problem. On the other hand, the staff was superb and the restaurant was open 24 hours. The valet parking service was able to get my car in less than one minute (repeatedly) which is much, much better than having to call 30 minutes prior to leaving and then just hoping that it is ready when you need it.

Nightclub in my room

I hate that they had a "bouncer" to get into the room elevators. Everyone had to check in to get into my room. Sometimes I had to go down and get them. What's the point of getting a large room if you can't have people in it. It was like getting into a night club, it was ridiculous. The rooms are cool looking and modern, but that kinda dampered my night.

standard.

Great design, fun atmosphere. Free wifi appreciated. Drinking water would have been nice, either in the room or down the hall. At the roof bar, $8 beer in a small plastic cup seemed a bit much.

The Standard

I stayed at The Standard Downtown LA on the last day of our trip out to LA. We were within walking distance (2 to 3 blocks) of a grocery store, coffee shop, LA Live, and the freeway was very easy to get to by car. The staff was nice and the rooms were small but comfortable enough for 2 people. The hotel lobby and restaurant were serviceable and I would definitely visit the rooftop bar for a drink if I'm in the area again. I was disappointed with 2 of the amenities in the rooms.... 1. the TV stand was too low to the ground and so it was uncomfortable watching the TV from the bed. 2. internet was free but the wireless connection from the room was very bad so I could not get any work done during my stay. But overall, considering the price and the location (downtown LA not Hollywood, Bev Hills, or Santa Monica), I would definitely consider staying there again.
