This was my fifth or sixth stay, this time on a business trip. Overall just a great experience – friendly staff, good location, nice large clean room, lobby restaurant is very good (had both breakfast and dinner). A few minor complaints… the large doors to the bathroom didn’t slide easily and it took forever to get a taxi in the... More

We stayed here as it was close to our sons apartment. Wrong choice!! It's funky it's cool but not at all comfortable. Overpriced for what the hotel offers. The design and the room decor is as it's supposed to be I guess , cool , new age, the room was huge with one wall of just windows , ( the... More

2nd day of L.A. electric grid failure so we stayed here last night. Really grateful for the air conditioning. Nice registration staff. Rooftop bar closed so they gave us complimentary drink vouchers for the other bar (nice). Great gym facilities, too (used them twice). The room. It was a little odd. Queen bed is on a carpeted platform I tripped... More

At first glance this hotel ticks all the boxes but that's all it does it only looks good. As a guest we couldn't access the rooftop pool or bar via the elevator the doorman said they were packing up for an event but we watched for 2hrs he was checking IDs and letting other people up/locals who walked off from...

We're sorry to hear that you didn't enjoy your recent stay with us. Hotel guests do have priority access to our rooftop bar. There are times when it is closed for a private event but we do have several other outlets for our guests to enjoy. Thanks for the feedback on our portion sizes too. We think they're pretty generous... More

I stayed at Standard Downtown LA in March this year. It's a pretty funky hotel, cool bar on the roof, pool and movies on the roof. Yeah we liked that. The guy upon arrival was awesome. So helpful and helped us out with info on the area etc. Really cool guy. So we like it so far. BUT, of course... More

The Standard is great in many ways, but I was most impressed by their customer service. I forgot toothpaste and within minutes of calling the front desk, free toothpaste and toothbrush were delivered to my room. I ended up needing a rental car delivered to the hotel same day with an airport return, and the front desk made it happen... More

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... More

We looked at hotels in the Hollywood/Beverley Hills area, get all seemed a bit tired (and expensive). Do glad we found this place, and downtown LA is awesome. The hotel is retro and pure class, we upgraded to their biggest room - it was stupidly big (next time will go with a standard room). Then there's the roof top bar... More

If you ever have meetings in Downtown Los Angeles, this is probably one of the best places to stay. Obviously we all wish that corporate accounts allowed for the Ritz, but given the rates of similar hotels, The Standard is definitely the best. The rooms are typically clean (I had one incident my first time, but it's really because I'm... More
