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
Rooms

Guest rooms vary in size from 300 to 1,000 square feet. Designed with bright, post-modern style, these spaces are sure to delight guests. All rooms come with either queen- or king-size platform beds, complimentary Wi-Fi, large-screen TVs with DVD players, iPod stereos and oversized work desks. Bathrooms come furnished with glass-enclosed walk-in showers or soaking bathtubs, earth-friendly bath amenities and plush bath towels.

Features

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.

 

Business travelers take advantage of the free Wi-Fi, fully equipped business center and state-of-the-meeting rooms. Unwind at the heated outdoor pool and the fitness center in between shopping, sightseeing and nightlife adventures.

Dining

The hotel's 24/7 Restaurant serves fabulous New American cuisine in a vibrant, retro-diner interior and an outdoor patio alongside a delightful fountain. At the Rooftop Bar, DJ's spin the hippest grooves, guests sip tempting cocktails in a sexy lounge setting, and L.A.'s downtown skyline is laid out for view.

Good ammenities. Good food. Great staff. Location and parking are an issue though. If you are in a trendy mood, a rather cool experience.

Convenient, Clean and Great Staff

We visited Los Angeles for a weekend and had a great time staying at The Standard. It was hard to find the standard the first day but it got easier. Remember to stay in the far left lane when you are on Flower Street. The room was clean and comfortable. Staff were really nice and valet allows unlimited in and out trips which was great cause parking is really expensive downtown. The gym was also well equipped and breakfast at the hotel was fairly priced. We really enjoyed the atmosphere in the restaurant and the patio. We would definitely stay here again.

Awesome Night

I had an out town friend stay in LA with me so I booked him the Wow suite and he was blown away, we had a blast at the rooftop bar and the suite was modern and sleek. Mini bar did not work but Donald at the front desk took care of our request, would definitely stay here again.

a different experience

The Standard is very nice and modern hotel. It has a very popular roof top party bar with swimming pool. Our room was very nice, but different, The bathroom featured a shower with a full view window from the main room. The hotel also features a ping pong room for guests.

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!

Pretty Standard

Generally we had a fun experience at the hotel, which definitely has some outrageous amenities and unique character. The place is geared towards a younger, "hipster" clientele, which it seems to be targeting quite well. Although for a "4-star" hotel, the rooms could use improvement in both cleanliness and comfort--they weren't bad merely not what I expected from an above average hotel. The staff albeit courteous and accommodating seems stretched thin at times (unexpectedly long waits for housekeeping requests, room service etc.) A big let down was the inaccessibility to the rooftop pool over our weekend stay, which was constantly hosting club events.
