We've stayed at The Standard a couple of different times and always have fun. It's pretty standard (sorry, ugh...) boutique hotel fare; minimalist room furnishings, simple, bright colors, glass walls that separate the shower from the rest of the room (thumbs up!), etc. You get the picture. It is understandable why this place is so popular with 20-somethings. The bars... More

Hi there! I would like to thank you for reviewing The Standard Hotel DTLA! Our rooftop is definitely a hot spot for the city. It attracts thousands of guests throughout the year. Sometimes, however, there are periods where it is very calm and serene. At a blink of an eye, though, it can change to an atmosphere that can be... More

This hotel tries to be trendy but feels like it is a cheap hotel run solely for loud drunken teenagers. The rooms are cold and sterile... felt like staying in a hostel frankly. There is not even a proper concierge, just the kids on reception who are seemingly untrained and clueless. They are likely to recommend you go to some... More

Adored this place! Its gorgeous and modern, comfy, open for food all night, in a great area and just plain ol rock and roll to a tee! The beds are a little hard but the shower was killer. For a rock and roll spot, they need to do a better job of curtains. No one likes waking up to light... More

The rooftop aspect of it is clearly the best one to highlight in the Standard Downtown. Excellent service, entertainment and set-up make it the perfect atmosphere for any given time with a few friends. I would not rate the food as high and the rates per room can be a stopover is some cases; yet I would surely stop here... More

Okay, here's the thing. The Standard is wonderful for a bar scene. If you are young and single go to the Standard and have a ball. The drinks are great and it is always packed.

Friendly young staff. The room had one plastic chair for a couple. I had my wine standing up. Then after a busy long day we dropped onto the mattress. There was a huge platform around it.

Staying at The Standard Downtown is like buying an Alfa Romeo. It looks sexy on the lot and a good idea in theory, but soon after you start driving it, it stutters, breaks down, and then eventually envelops your life in misery and disappointment.

I stayed here in an effort to save money for my company.

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.
