My french guide book recommended it, so we follow and the place is really nice, good cocktails in a lounge area overlooking the tall buildings around, I will say more, surrounded by them.You can either seat in the lounge area or in a water bed by the pool. The music is nice and allows conversation. It seems crowd before dinner,...

Thought I would try something different on a business trip, but turned out to be a bit of a mistake. The hotel was filled with young people who were having a good time, and I would stay there again if I could go back and be one of them. For a business trip though, it was not a good choice....

Really enjoyed this hotel. I've been there twice now for business. If you need to be downtown, you will love the location. The rooms are very spacious and the service is GREAT at this hotel! It's a super hip and modern style, which I really like. I went to the main restaurant for breakfast and it was great. They have...

I had a few issues with my stay in regard to cleanliness; like my friend found a dead bug and cigarette ashes in our room and then when we got upgraded (the 2nd time) we found stains on the comforter and sand in the bath tub, and various pieces of furniture had Knicks and cracks about the place. Then there...

If you're looking for a 4-star hotel, this is not the one for you.... Rooms are very small and the cleaning of the room during our stay was minimal. I have stayed in a very other hotels in the area, which id choose over the standard for sure.

I have to say, this is my favorite hotel in downtown Los Angeles - have stayed two nights to date on two different occasions. First, I want to dispel previous comments regarding The Standard's security staff. They are very friendly and polite. I think some of the comments here are from people bitter that they couldn't get into the rooftop...

This hotel values parties and events in its premises over hotel guests. Housekeeping was not up to standards of a 4 star hotel. They did not empty out both trash bins in our room, and didn't replace a few items in our bathroom. I really wanted to like the hotel, but I wouldn't recommend as a good place to stay.

I've stayed here before a few times but this last visit (November) was the first time I had my family came over to visit us while at the hotel. Unfortunately, the staff seems to be unfriendly with older folks. No one helped me while I'm pushing my mother who's in a wheelchair. The access is very difficult to figure out...

Neighbourhood 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.
