The first time I stayed at the Standard in 2002 I was greated by a nude male model playing with dollar bills and a telephone receiver inside a crystal frame, fish-bowl sort of like.
I wasn't terribly impressed. I was there for work and had little time to dwell on the light atmosphere. I was amused by the destination writing in the rooms, which though hospital-scant are very comfortable. The location is right below the Hills, smack on sunset, next to places like Marmont and the infamous Viper Room. Great.
I stayed there a couple of times more.
If you are looking for something diverse in L.A. without having to bump into too many celebrities, I do recommend it. Personnel is top notch.
