I flew in and out of LA in early June. I flew in to see the Stanley Cup Final game between the LA Kings and New York Rangers at the Staples Center. I picked this hotel since it was about a 1 mile walk to the Staples Center. The hotel is in an old oil company office building. So, the... More

The roof top bar was great and everyone even the security is extremely nice. Yes valet was $35 per day but after a long drive like we had it's completely with... More

Everything was going fine until the last night of my stay. The night before checkout my girlfriend and I were packing our suitcases so we could check out early and say our last goodbyes to LA. My girlfriend noticed that a bag was missing. I double, no I tripled checked because I didn't want to accuse anyone of stealing. I... More

I have always enjoyed this hotel, although it has been a little while since I have stayed. If you know what to expect -- meaning, this is NOT the Peninsula -- you will be happy. The views from the rooftop pool and lounge are incredible. The beds are so comfortable you won't want to get up. The prices are fair.... More

Bed and pillows too squishy--so you can fall into bed painlessly if you're messed up. Judging from the people in the lobby, this is a problem. Bed eccentrically placed directly on a platform inches from the floor, so you won't fall out of it when you're drunk or stoned-but for the rest of us it's a pain to get out... More

A much needed staycation and birthday retreat. You can have as much one on one time or be out in a crowd all within the location. Would come back for a pool day soon...Customer service was really amazing...hey! we didn't even visit the Biergarten! but the ping pong room was fabulous. Will definitely bring a crew back...

Wristbands are required on Pool Party Days. Room key is not currency so bring cash to the pool. Front Desk was awesome. Called when room was ready and notified of the noise when offered the 12th floor and they moved me to the 5th when asked. Biergarten kind of schtick but it did have good Germany bier and cooked on...

Little confusion at check in with pre pay vouchers, although quickly cleared up. Food in restaurant this time was a little below par as was room service. Rooms clean and large, air con not working in one of our rooms. Was little surprised at lack of security...homeless man allowed to wander around hotel asking for cigarettes, was a little intimidating.... More

This was our first trip to LA and The Standard came highly recommended. Totally disappointed. Customer service was seriously lacking and the staff acted like we should be thanking them for letting us stay there. There was an awesome pool on the roof but since they let anyone in town use it we never got a chance to enjoy it.... More
