I stayed at this hotel with my sister for four nights while in LA visiting my daughter. We all loved the cool room with the platform beds and huge bathroom. The location of the hotel was great for getting to all of the places we wanted to go, and we enjoyed walking downtown LA and seeing the great buildings. The... More

I know this hotel is very popular. We stayed there over a Saturday night; we saw the lines. There is an actual velvet rope keeping the hungry, fashion-plate hordes from getting up to the rooftop bar. Though this may be someone's scene, it ain't mine. I should've known better when I booked. Consider me your canary in the coal mine.... More

Sorry to hear that we weren't your cup of long-island-ice-tea...or any other cocktail! The Standard, Downtown L.A has been in the heart of the city for nearly 14 years and we are a really popular place to visit for locals and travelers alike so we are proud that we have lots of food and beverage outlets for our guests and...

I had originally booked a medium room on a Friday night in November. I arrived a bit early and the room was not ready upon check in so the concierge upgraded my room to a large room. Not only was my room upgraded but i was also able to check in early. My stay was great. Staff was very friendly... More

In all my years of living in SoCal: never spent ANY time in the actual downtown L.A. All that has changed. They gave me an additional-upgrade to a "huge" room. Very VERY spacious: situated on the corner; 10th floor. very interesting decorations; and 'inuendo-ish' symbols. not a place to take "the children". It's for sure an "adult hotel". The bed... More

we spent an enjoyable stay at The Standard last month. Number 1 is the nightlife scene on the rooftop. Big breakfasts are a close second. Generally modern, but not over the top. Friendly staff everywhere. A good base to experience LA from.

I truly enjoyed my stay, from the location to the rooms to the rooftop, couldn't have asked for a better hotel. I will absolutely stay here again, as it is chic, new, fun with fabulous rooms and a fantastic restaurant.

Our 3 days at the Standard in downtown LA was the best experience I have ever had in a hotel. We booked online through Tablet because the price was less than the special rate at the hotel hosting the conference I was attending. Looking at the photos, we were prepared not to quite fit in with the cool, hip vibe... More

This is a noisy hotel. Maybe some people like that but I don't. One friend was on the third floor over the bar. He used the earplugs but the floor and his bed vibrated from the loud music. I was warned not to take the top floor because that's has even more noise. As for the beds, if you want... More

Hi Glenn and firstly, thanks for staying with us during your trip to Downtown Los Angeles! We're sorry you and your friend experienced some noise. We do have a rooftop bar and a ping-pong club at the hotel and whilst we try and not disturb our sleeping guests, some people are more sensitive to the noise than others - hence... More

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

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.
