“Not Standard At All!”
Reviewed November 11, 2005

If you are young, hip (or wanna be) want to stay somewhere near where it's all happening - this could be the place. It is NOT cheap, but then again it's not that expensive either. Rooms are spacious, staff are friendly & helpful although a little pretentious. If you want somewhere quiet & romantic forget it & on our return from some clubbing on the strip we found our hotel to be even busier at 3am with slightly wasted fashion types staggering around outside the foyer! To summarise - if you want somewhere where you can safely park you car, that looks nice, in a good location & you like to party - check yourself in!

Slap a cool color of paint on the wall, go to Ikea to buy furniture and that pretty much sums up The Standard. A trendy Motel 6 at best. My bet is Motel 6 at least has a chair in the room instead of a bean bag chair. LA can keep this gem all to themselves.

I blame myself for booking this plywood palace but I should share the experience either way. Coming from New York City, where everything is also stylized, it was cool upon entry to see the chick in the glass box pretending to read and the funky staff hanging out pretending to work. Everyone told us that it has a great bar and restaurant, and that is true, especially the breakfast. But boy, take that elevator upstairs and you'll be in for a real treat. Everything stinks from a perfect combination of urine and mold that never goes away. All rooms are smoking, don't let them tell you differently. The rooms are intentionally minimalist 1960s/1970s decor and that worked well with the surroundings. The problem is the walls are as thin as paper and you can hear EVERYTHING that is going on around you. Your only chance for survival in this place is if your neighbors aren't partying all night long. I would say in general you will have about a 10% chance to sleep. If you're 25 or under and don't have any business meetings while you're in town, it's perfect! It's also perfect for people who are broke and love to pile 10-20 people from their indy film into the room and the pool. My wife and I were lying in bed until 7:00 in the morning wondering when our --- neighbor was going to stop having phone --- with her boyfriend and we had been calling the front desk all night long and banging on the wall. They were kind enough not to charge us for the nightmare night and apologized emphatically, but it was too late. the guy at the front desk also got me a room at another hotel for a good rate. Are we having fun yet? Needless to say, i will never set foot anywhere near this place again, actually... maybe I'll meet someone there for breakfast after an all nighter.

We stayed here during Emmy's. Lots of B/C listers and people that want to be on any list, so that is ALWAYS fun to watch. Everyone is good looking- and the people watching became a sport to us. I am convinced that everyone in Hollyweird is self medicated. People were falling all over the place. I wished I'd had my camera!

Anyhow- let's get to the rooms and amenities. We had booked an "extra large 'cause size matters" room and it was pretty big. We couldn't get the sofa to fold out into an extra bed (we had 3 people) and no one came up to help after we called twice.

The furnishings are lower than ikea quality. No shower pressure or exhaust fan in bathroom. It's an old hotel that, to me, the owner came in and put a bandaid on, flipped the sign upside down and did some trendy cosmetics to make it look like a hip place to stay- which it is. If you can buck up to the fact that you are paying for the scene and not the rooms, you'll be fine. If rooms and scene matter...maybe stay at Mondrian for the extra $75 per night. Much better.

We had booked the Standard Hotel in Hollywood and then later read the reviews and were nervous about what we would find. Relax. It was a great time and a great hotel. It just depends what it is that you’re looking for. If you’re looking for a quiet/family type of hotel this isn’t really the place for that. However, if you’re looking for a cool place to hang out, grab some drinks, and have fun then this is more up your alley. The noise level wasn’t out of control at all and we were on the side of Sunset. The people there were fine too. No one seemed rude or bothered by any questions that you have. They actually let us check out at 4pm instead of 2pm since we had a later flight. Good time all around.

I just stayed in this hotel for 4 nights last week and enjoyed every minute of it.
Most of the comments on these pages hold some truth: yes, it is almost too cool, it is hip, there's a lot of poseurs and wannabees, no storage room, very good restaurant (take your breakfast by the pool!)... I can imagine it can be very loud streetside, but I put in a request for a poolside room when I made my online reservation, and everything was exactly as I demanded. There was some noise from the poolbar, but at 1am everything was as quiet as can be - which I think is a VERY reasonable time. If you're looking for a quiet retreat you should not come to the Strip in the first place.
If you're looking to get a good feel of the trip that is Hollywood, this is exactly the place to do so. At very reasonable rates AND with excellent service and great staff - which I didn't find the least bit arrogant.

This hotel rocks! It's very very cool. The rooms are huge with massive king sized beds and outdoor areas. This is for the budget rooms! Bathrooms are simple and a little bit on the cosy side. There's no room to put the vast amount of products that us girls tend to carry anyway. The hotel bar is superb and the general ambience is very rock and roll. The food in the restaurant is of an excellent standard and the staff are very friendly. I would definately stay here again. It's right in the heart of the sunset strip so easy for going out to the many fabulous restaurants and bars in the area.
