First, the good news. The location is great, the staff are friendly, and the zip car accessibility is a wonderful convenience. However...
When you have four hangers and no dresser/drawers for your clothes, that is more than a minor problem. When the hallway has the small of something being obviously perfumed over, that's a problem. When your room hasn't been straightened after seven hours (beginning with when housekeeping woke up the person next door because they wanted to clean), you have to wonder. The towels don't absorb water so much as move it around. There is no Kleenex in the bathroom. The $13 cocktails should taste like maybe there is at least a touch of alcohol in them.
I do not need to feel pampered. I do not need to be made to feel special. But I do require the basics to be attended to first, before the beanbag chairs and the trash cans that stand at awkward angles. I am tempted to give The Standard in Hollywood a poor rating, but I get the sense that, from the management's perspective, the worst thing you could do is call them average.
