The Standard Downtown LA

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

A clean, convenient hotel in Downtown that also excellent modern amenities

An overall great experience. Great location in downtown and the staff at The Standard are great. The front desk during my stay was the best, they helped me through some challenges I brought with my stay and gave great recommendations of businesses in the area. The staff at the restaurant were great as well. I wasn't a big fan of the situation with rooftop pool and bar. The website of the hotel make it clear there are pool parties and there are non hotel guests on the rooftop. Clean rooms, nice views of the city, close to several restaurants and a short Uber or Taxi to Dodger Stadium. If I return to LA, I would definitely come back!

Awesome location - for both work and play. The adaptive re-use of an old office building into a swanky mid-century hipster hotel is great, but the facilities are now tired and the hotel needs a refresh. That said, it’s a hard location and price to beat. Hotel staff can throw in a little bit of cheer - I realize this is not in the hipster hotel playbook, but it really doesn’t hurt.

Great experience. The staff recommended good places to eat .

there was construction throughout the night (i was awake from 12am-5am). when i called the front desk to ask them to how come they didn't notify me beforehand of the possible noise issue resulting from construction, rather than exhibit understanding, they were defensive and didn't off to do anything about it. they take zero accountability for any feedback you give them. also, housekeeping didn't arrive to tidy up the room-- even though i was gone from AM to PM. and when i asked upon my return for housekeeping service, it took an hour for them to arrive-- by this time, it was early evening. the rooms are also DIRTY-- mold in the bathrooms, and the carpets are dingy. i wish i had brought house-slippers-- as they do NOT provide any. The Standard LA is the WORST hotel w/ the WORST HOSPITALITY SERVICE I have ever stayed in, and they are UNAPOLOGETIC about they way they treat you. i even spoke to the manager and who was not helpful either. you are better SPENDING YOUR PRECIOUS MONEY ELSEWHERE-- trust me.

Here's my unique hotel experience in downtown la. I arrived Saturday afternoon checkin 3pm, I paid $40 for vallet and checked in with the hotel staff, the clerk gave my girl and I comped drinks at the bar while our room was being cleaned. THe hotel was in walking distance of spring street where we got drinks and listened to live music before heading back to the hotel at 3am. I checked out at 9am the next day Here our my thoughts: Affordable room for staying in downtown LA Service was friendly and accomadating Unique atmosphere; lobby dj, lobby late night bar, rooftop techno event, rooftop pool Close to Spring Street I would recommend to anyone wanting to have a fun time that doesn't care that its a more vintage spot and the hallways may smell a little

Rooftop bar was awesome! We want to try ping pong next time!

After we checked in and opened the room door, someone was already there. It was most terrified experience for us and the person in the room. The staff said it must have some mixe up but this kind of thing never let it happen. Next morning when I checked out, I was charged coffee that I never ordered. Unbelievable weak system to manage customer information. Not sure about weak system or just a human error, but no excuse for these mess and insecurities.

Room's bed was not comfortable and awkward to get in as it was so low. The shower tub combo was dangerous to use and easy to slip in. We just wanted a shower and this combo was an 'upgrade' since booked room was not ready at check in.

I stayed two nights while on a business trip. While this hotel was designed for the under 40 crowd I felt comfortable and enjoyed the energy of the young people in the restaurant and bars.

Staff was rude and room was an open space with no character

Great modern accommodations. Perfect if you have things to do in downtown LA

the room was fine but had a platform that was not very comfortable

The front desk employees were rude. I was there celebrating my bday w some friends, and they wouldn't allow them to put their bags in my room while we were using the pool. The hotel is way overpriced for the service u get. I'll never make that mistake again :/

It was great and great views of down town.. Would like to stay here again

really cool hotel with some truly unique amenities. the rooftop pool/patio/bar/lounge was amazing and the perfect spot to unwind before dinner. The room was comfy and cool, loved the elevated bed and simple decor. Will be back to claim to ping pong tables again!!!

The Standard was just around the corner from the conference. The décor was cool - hard to find the lobby cool. Room was minimal, modern. Had no washcloth to use with the given liquid soap - but the hotel had overall appeal. Not child friendly.

First, this hotel has an amazing rooftop patio bar. For couples or business travelers looking to unwind, this detail is almost all you need. The location is also great, with many restaurants, bars and coffee shops within walking distance. The transit accessibility is also high. The room decor is fun. The only weird element is that there is a window in the bathroom, allowing someone in the main room to see into the bathroom. I traveled by myself, so I didn't have to confront the possibility of someone seeing me on the toilet?

The hotel was amazing, only dislike was the parking that was $30 a night. otherwise it was perfect.

Stayed at Wow! room. Really spacious and open layout. Huge bathroom. Complimentary access to the rooftop.
