The Good: location for nightlife and restaurants, tourist sightseeing. Friendly staff. 24 hr room service. Decent view of LA from balcony. Decent sheets. Nice shower water pressure.
The Bad: like the Emperor's New Clothes. The decor is so worn that it's become retro and hip again, which makes you wonder whether the joke's on you.
The "Mark": misses badly at this price point. Roosevelt is up the street and more expensive but well worth the extra $ in this neighborhood.

I stayed at this Hotel over night for the Haloween celebration in West Hollywood. Although this hotel put me in walking distance to all the festivities, I could never recommend this hotel to anyone. First of all you can find better accommodations at a motel 6 for a third of the price. The hotel furnishings are like Ikea meets a yard sale. The rooms are small and the beds are terrible. The furniture is very cheap and the carpet looks like it hides plenty of dirt. The only positive thing I can say about the standard is that it has a nice poolside bar/lounge. That's it. My advice, do not stay here.

This is an interesting hotel, and I guess it was what I had in mind when we decided to stay here. The check-in staff was really nice, Dominique I think was his name. Our room was on the end of the hallway on a corner balcony, it was HUGE. In fact too big, the bed was about 5 metres from the TV and it just seemed odd to have to walk for so long to get anywhere!

The room is kind of 70s chic, lots of blues which isn't the most cosy of colours, I really liked the orange bathroom though. Lobby is odd, a woman appears to be employed to sit in a glass box behind reception in the evenings and the valets are kind of porn starish... I dunno it's an odd place, but as I said before, it was kind of what I was expecting.

Oddly as we were checking out on a Sunday there appeared to be some sort of pool party happening and the whole lobby stunk of weed. People were rolling up in the corner as we waited for our car to the airport. No one in the hotel seemed to be paying much attention to this, instead focusing on carding the teens who appeared to be breezing past to join in the fun.

Plus points for me were the amazing views over the pool onto LA, the location was good as you could stroll down to Santa Monica Boulevard, and we appeared to be a short enough drive from most of the spots.

Downside was the odd crowd the place attracted (euro-trash, business men having affairs, teens smoking pot) plus the price was a little high for a hotel that did seem a bit dated around the edges...

This hotel basically stinks. It was once a dreary motel and the rooms are still depressing. My dorm room had more style than this place and was more timeless in design. It did remind me of my dorm room in the lack of comfort and space everywhere you look. There isn't really a closet -- just an opening where the mini-bar hogs most of the space, leaving enough room for a couple of items on hangers. There is literally no place to put one's luggage outside of the floor. I'd rate it highly if it was a youth hostel, but those are a significantly greater value than the "Sub-Standard."

Room Tip: Stay at a better hotel.

Hello HotelFreak222,

I'm sorry to see the unique design of our hotel was not on par with what you are accustomed to in your travels. We do have several different room categories on property, each of which offers a variety of features such as larger closets or more square footage. Should you decide to return, please feel free to let us know of your needs in advance and we will be able to help guide you on the room type most suitable for you. Thanks again for voicing your opinion and we hope to have the opportunity to change your mind about us in the near future.

I stay in West Hollywood pretty regularly, but fancied a new hotel this time round. Having spent a little time at The Standard Downtown, I decided to book The Standard West Hollywood.
Basically, it's just like the title says - this is what you probably want from a hotel in West Hollywood.
There are a few reviews talking about it being too young, a little contrived and try-hard hip (with the live model in the glass tank over reception) but seriously, it's Hollywood. What did you expect...?

So here goes - the rooms are excellent, big, light, nicely decorated (if fairly plain) and clean. Good bathroom, comfortable bed and a great mini-bar selection (you can't go wrong with a hotel that has half-bottles of Patron and Maker's Mark in the room). The service was good, just the right amount of friendly but not over the top, and the pool and bar area are extremely nice, with good views across the city and decent poolside drinks.
If you want to be in this part of Hollywood (Sunset area, right by House of Blues) and want all of the things that entails (including model-looking valet parking attendants wearing 'Standard' mechanic shirts) this is pretty much ideal.

It seems like The Standard's hotels are all of a type (which is probably a good thing) - so expect ever so slightly self-conciously 'hip' things (like orange bathroom fittings and staff dressed in white linen) but provided you're not looking for old-school 'luxury', it shouldn't disappoint. Yes, the crowd is youngish, yes they play music round the pool until late, yes it's a bit of a party hotel but yes, it's also a pretty cool, fun place to stay. Honestly, I like a hotel where the reception staff smile and compliment your scarf when you're blatantly returning from a night out at 9am.
If you don't want a young/hip/loudish/party hotel, maybe you should stay somewhere other than this part of West Hollywood. On the other hand, if you do, stay at The Standard.

Room Tip: Sunset rooms (front of the hotel, and the cheapest) are away from the pool so if you want to recover in peace, these might be best...
