The Standard, Hollywood
Ranked #16 of 19 Hotels in West Hollywood
Reviewed March 21, 2013

I was travelling for business and the Standard is in a great central location, easy to get to all of my appointments. I have stayed there twice now and both times very impressed with the staff, who are really keen to help and seem genuinely nice.
Wifi is free, which is great (not always the case in America!), and the 24-hour diner has really nice food and a great vibe. Also, it's never too busy so you can always get a table. The staff in here are really lovely too: friendly and helpful.
The pool is great, towels are provided on all the sun loungers, and you can eat and drink outside too.
I wasn't driving, but a friend came to meet me for lunch and said the valet was ludicrously expensive (over $30 dollars!) so be prepared for that.
But, overall, the prices seemed reasonable. It's not super-luxurious, but it has everything you need and is very clean with comfortable beds and good showers.
There is no gym or spa, if you are looking for that kind of thing: I wasn't.
I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: The rooms overlooking the pool bar can be a bit noisy.

This is obviously not a cookie cutter property and it shows in every single detail. This is real luxury with anticipatory behavior from the staff. From the gentleman who swiftly sent up some steamed milk for hot chocolate along with wine glasses, noticed we actually had champagne and then brought up flutes just as fast; to the clever details found throughout the hotel and suites to the design of the place > they simply get it. This is a retro post modern take on a fun motel with all the services and panache you'd expect from Andre Balazs. Request a room facing downtown LA for a killer view.

Room Tip: Room #320 is a corner room with a wraparound balcony and a view from the Chateau Marmont past downto...

Was told this was the "in-crowd" in the Hollywood district. Very chic and funky. Room was small, but cool vibe. Loved the rooftop area. Prices are steep here, more so than other hotels in the area, but I think a lot of what you are paying for is the "cool" vibe.

My sister and I stayed in LA for 6 days at the end of a big US/Mexico trip and we were not disappointed in finishing our trip at The Standard West Hollywood!!!

After reading the reviews on Tripadvisor, we selected The Standard based on its great location and its value for money and The Standard delivered!

As we were staying for a relatively long time and were at the end of a big trip, we selected an X-Large room and it really was X-Large! The room was quite minimalist, but it was perfectly spotless and had a lovely comfortable bed - and plenty of room for our big suitcases and all the stuff we had accumulated after 4 weeks travelling!

The hotel surroundings were cool and quirky - I really felt a 50s kind of LA beach style, which I really loved. The pool was a real scene and great for people watching, with lovely cocktails and beautiful views of LA. After big days of sightseeing and all the hussle and bussle of LA, it was nice to be able to come home, relax and cool down with a cocktail and a swim.

The staff were attentive and professional, but not overly friendly, which was fine.

The restaurant was also great - we enjoyed breakfast there every morning and I have to say that the heurvos rancheros is the best breakfast I have ever had and I would return to LA just to have that!

Perfect location for us with the Hop On Hop Off bus stop very close by on Sunset Boulevard (which we used for sightseeing and as our transportation) and all the shops/restaurants in Sunset Boulevard were very close too.

A wonderful way to end a wonderful holiday! Loved The Standard, loved LA and loved the USA! God bless America and I hope to return as quickly as possible!

Dear bbriedis,

Seems you had an amazing stay with us! All the things you enjoyed during your stint in Los Angeles: sightseeing, shopping, basking in the sun with food and drinks. You fit right into The Standard Culture. Guests like you remind us each day why we do what we do and how we do it~ We can’t wait for you to return! And YES ! there will be a nice plate of heurvos rancheros for you. The Standard Family awaits......

We stayed here with our 2-year old and enjoyed it overall. The first night our room was on the first floor of the courtyard facing the pool but with no real view. There was an outdoor speaker bolted on to our balcony, playing music loud enough that it was hard to take a nap. We asked to be moved, but the only other room available was right above the lounge -- even louder. They were very nice about it and upgraded us for free the second night to a larger room facing south east (towards downtown), which was very quiet. Glad we stayed here at least once.

Room Tip: Noisy except for rooms facing south east.

The Standard on West Hollywood carries the same name as all the other Standar hotels (Miami & New york ) and yet it fails to disappoint.

The rooms are barely furnished, the carpets are filthy (particularly in the corridors)
The food in the bar was very mediocre...

Why oh why this hotel even bears the same name as the others...?

We were kindly deducted our bar bill from the final tab .. but rest assured I am not going back!

Room Tip: Avoid at all costs

Dear TEREHDEC,

We thank you for taking the time to give us your honest feedback. Our goal is to exceed the expectations of our guest while maintaining the individual feel of each property and its location. Seems you were in one of our spacious X-Large rooms with the great view of the Los Angeles skyline and our pool deck. Additionally our bathrooms have just been recently upgraded with rain shower, organic bath products, cork tiles and stylish hardware. I am sorry that we our design aesthetic did not fit your individual taste. However, I am happy to hear that our front desk agent took care of your dinner check from our Poolside Café; I hope you enjoyed our food and drinks. The next time your travel brings you back to West Hollywood, we hope you’d stop by for a bite.

I much prefer this Standard location over any other. While the downstairs club scene on weekends can be a bit bogus and the seceney vibe a bit obnoxious, the location is killer and some of the rooms I've stayed in are very spacious and comfortable. I love the rooms that face southeast (not the pool) as youre a bit elevated and get nice daylight. I think the diner is great downstairs. Bathroom products, showers and toilet setups in this hotel are nice. Lighting fixtures are nice, closet space plentiful. Staff and hotel business services are all helpful. Valet not the best, but this is a pretty trafficked hotel. Walking distance to a few things on the strip and Chateau Maramount which is always nice for a drink.

Room Tip: Southeast corner rooms have the best views and daylight.
