I'm not quite sure why everyone thinks this hotel is nice. We stayed here as part of a wedding block and it was supposed to be the "nice" option between there and the doubletree. The lobby and hallways haven't been renovated since 1960. The beds are mattresses on the floor. Bathrooms don't have anywhere to hang your belongings so their... More

Sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your stay with us. Our hotel is very much created around art and design and we know that it doesn't suit everyone's taste. There are many more traditional style hotels in Downtown Los Angeles so we hope that you do come back to the area as there's so much to experience here! Thanks... More

If you want a good night sleep, do not stay at Standard. If you are a party animal who goes to bed after 2am, this is the right choice for you. Why? Because they have a very popular rooftop bar where the music is so loud that you hear it in your room until 2am in the middle of night.... More

We are so sorry to hear you experienced noise when you were staying with us. Our rooftop does have DJ's nightly but we try to ensure this doesn't disrupt our hotel guests who we value a great deal. We do have a Quiet Floor program in place so next time, we'll make sure you have a peaceful nights sleep. More

Amazing hotel! Members of the staff were very friendly and helpful. Room service was prompt and the food was great. The room was clean and comfortable, with simple, modern decor. And the rooftop really comes alive at night! Would definitely recommend.

I have stayed at the Standard a few times now and each time it comes with its own amazements. The front desk employees are always friendly and helpful. The price was great and the amenities (pool tables, ping pong tables and bars) were always fun and relaxing. The hotel is located conveniently dt so easy to walk just about anywhere.... More

Stayed here a couple of times in the past months and always had a great time. Check in was easy and workers were friendly. So much to do within the hotel and location wise it is walking distance to many bars, resturant, and shops.

The Standard is pretty swank, right down to the cute little red ear plugs they provide for you by the sink in your glass-walled bathroom. They come in very handy for blocking out the thumping noise from the roof bar. Loved the decor, the funky old elevators, and the outrageously priced items in the mini bar. Everything was clean, fresh,... More

Great Place the staff friendly and very helpful and welcoming. I most say although I understand the reason I found it a bit un-cool to drink cocktails and champagne out of plastic "glasses" on the rooftop bar. Loved the fact they have 24 hour open restaurant. Would certainly consider staying there again.

Hi Tina! Thanks for the review and we're happy to hear you'd come back! Whenever there is water around (our rooftop pool) we have to serve drinks in plastic 'glasses' for our patrons safety. Nothing like a broken glass and a cut foot to spoil your day! We hope to welcome you back again really soon! More

The Standard DTLA is easily one of the best "posh" "cool" "chic" "insert adjective" hotels in America. Plain and simply, it's a great place to hang out and relax. The restaurant is great, and there are several venues with different vibes throughout the architecturally cool-yet-old-school building. The rooftop has three alone, plus an amazing view and a super cool pool!... More

I couldn't rate these guys any higher - it was an awesome stay! Great facilities, friendly staff. Fun rooftop and great pool. Very reasonably priced minibar. Quirky showers that back onto the bed via a panel of glass. Only 2 blocks walk to the Metro Red line to Hollywood and Universal Studios. Even the small quirks down to providing earplugs... More

The hotel is a really unique place - unlike any other, especially for a business traveler like myself. The rooms are not "Standard" by any means. The space in the room for work is very good, and the wifi was strong. The arrangement of the spaces with a tub in the center was very interesting. The best is the rooftop... More
