Having decided to spend a night Downtown and having had The Standard brand recommended by friends, it seemed to be a good idea to stay here, especially as it was a Saturday night and we had read that the rooftop was a place to be. Check in was simple and we had gone for a large room. It was certainly... More

There are lots of different amenities here than at most hotels. Our trip wasn't very long so we didn't get to partake but the arcade and everything on the rooftop looked so fun! We were in town for a concert and chose to stay here b/c it was closer to where we were going for that but since its in... More

First of all, we are not the target demographic for this hotel. We are in our mid 50's and we had to laugh when the very polite check in people told us that as guests we would get to go to the front of the line for the Saturday pool party. Yeah, not really our scene. But we actually really... More

I'm a local and I stayed at the Standard on Saturday night. What a great place. I classic hotel that brings great nightlife and ambience. I went there with my gf and went to the rooftop lounge where we had a couple drinks and danced. Hip crowd, good music and great weather. Unfortunately my girl got sick and we had... More

The standard is very cool.. great table tennis bar and club attached. Rooms were as expected large and minimalist they would have benefitted from a comfortable chair as the bed is more or less a matress on the floor and the hotel lacked a lounge type area. On the upside parking is easy and the roof bar is great the... More

It had been 15 year since I last visited LA and the thought of staying in Downtown this time round scared me lol however the hotel was very well located, incredibly trendy and had an awsome vibe. Each and every day there was something to do, playing ping pong, having a very tasty breakfast by the hotel entrance or even... More

Recently returned from a 2 night stay. We are a family of 4 with 2 young children and stayed in a Wow Suite, which was a great wow. The space was amazing, the bathroom is one of the largest i have ever seen in a hotel along with the bath, the kids loved it. The roof top pool offers a... More

I've stayed at both the downtown and Hollywood Standard Hotels. they are very similar in that the lobby is inviting, the restaurants are good, the staff are great, but the common areas, hallways, and rooms are run down and plain. it is the Standard of course so it does attract people to the roof top bar.

Stayed here to go to a wedding close by. Location is in downtown LA. Lobby is modern and very cool. Staff is nice and welcoming, Rooms are nice with a glass shower meaning if you are in the shower, people in the room can see you. But for me, I should have closed the curtains because I could see people... More

Although large - the room was appointed a little too less is more. The rooftop pool is not where you go to read a book and relax in the sun - but if you are looking for a scene - it is there! Fun views of LA though. The music from the bars downstairs was outrageously loud at 2 AM... 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.
