This hotel is definitely quirky and for me quirky means interesting. I found myself upgraded into a fascinating room with an enourmous bath and shower in an open bathroom that look straight into the main bedroom area. For some reason known only to the management and some art enthusiasts, there was a massive rubber foot in the middle of the... More

We stayed at the Standard because it was recommended by an organization paying for a portion of our trip and it was the hotel with which they had arrangements. The Standard tries hard to be hip and I imagine it succeeds with some of its guests, but if you are an older traveler (say 45 - 50 or older) this... More

The decor here is very stylish and hip, but it's just not comfortable. The room was roomy and attractive, but there was no comfortable place to sit. The extremely low platform bed had a thin, hard mattress. Only a curtain separated the bedroom from the bathroom. And in the bathroom, the "counter" for the sink was about knee high, making... More

if you are on a business trip and planning to work in DT LA stay a way from this place! despite the "no smoking" policy cigarette and Pot smoking is a norm, late night especially. The management is not enforcing the policy, advising me that "it's impossible to tell which rooms it comes from because the ventilation system carries the... More

We went for drinks and snacks late in the evening. It was quite a view of the 'concrete jungle' around it. The service we got was way above average. There is a really nice pool and it has a great ambience at night. One word of advice. The valet parking to go even to the rooftop bar was $40. But... More

There are lots of hotel choices in downtown Los Angeles. If you like the traditional hotel experience there are places like the Westin Bonaventure, the Sheraton, the Omni and more. If you're like me and want something with an edge, something a little quirky with fun nightlife accompanied by beautiful views of fog-draped skyscrapers towering around you, The Standard Downtown...

The hotel has some nice features--the rooftop pool is nice but the hotel is strange--run down/old school which we thought would be quirky and trendy but it needs a facelift. More important, though, is we paid a good price for the WOW suite and it was below the rooftop bar that has a DJ or something and is open until... More

Indeed, I liked it! Stylish and really one of a kind. My room was literally gigantic and warm! Very nice feeling! Amenities are top notch, and minibar is stuffed with everything which comes to mind: it reminds me a bit of the QT in Sydney, therefore I loved it even more. Service is good and food as well! Crew is... More

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering buildings, bustling streets, and industrial warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of cultures here with a growing influx of business professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts, bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly. Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants in the city leading the LA foodie scene, plus it is the location of cultural and sports venues including the Walt Disney Concert Hall, the Staples Center, and the Coliseum at the University of Southern California.
