I had a fantastic time at the Standard hotel. The room was great and the service given to me by Jesus at the restaurant and David B at the front desk where beyond my expectations. They were very attentive and made sure my stay was great. Will be coming back to this hotel in my next business trip.

i would rather expect such experience in a 3 stars hotel or maybe the concept didn't match my profile. our room was nice and clean, with a very minimalist design. the less pleasant part of our stay was having a lot of homeless people in the lobby and all around the hotel. another less pleasant aspect was asking about car...

The only positive is the downtown location, rooms dirty, smell bad, the bed is over a platform very dangerous, the attentiveness, no attentiveness I mean. Should had check out moment we opened the room doors. Very old building, elevators are extremely slow.

Likely a better place to party than to stay. Rented large WOW suite but did not like it. No bathroom privacy for romantic couple, no art on walls, stark hard interior, modern low uncomfortable furnishings. Not for everyone. Check it out before you commit. Great pool bar and beer garden on roof. Crowded busy valet area. Front desk staff not...

Many review listed this hotel as 4-star. I would say the service was pretty good, but the facility is somewhat rundown and in need of upgrades. The room was huge even though I stayed at one of smaller rooms. The bed was comfortable. As you can see in the photos, the room has modern interior and institutional bathroom. The counter...

Hotel itself from the outside isn't much and when you walk in through the back the recption area with the cool sofas etc is exceptionally dark and needs something as is lacking that wow factor. Service was good on reception they checked me in at 10am which was nice, room on the 7th floor - big and spacious, interesting concept...

Been here a few times and love the large rooms, pool decks and roof bars and varied activities including crazy people watching and the occasional impromptu music. Service is fun and friendly and location makes it a nice alternative to otherwise dull hotels downtown.

I choose this hotel purely based on available.I get retro but this hotel is in need of a serious upgrade or at the very least decent preventative maintenance. The room was functional but tiny-The bed was literally sitting on the floor and considering I am 6'7"-I felt like I was sleeping on a blow up mattress in my basement for...

Stayed here for a business trip. Did not have the opportunity to go up to the pool, but would have liked to, as I've heard it's superb. Pros: nice place. relatively cheap parking. Clean rooms. Comfortable bed. Ping Pong! Especially the neon spray paint one in the lobby. Cons: Don't rely on getting a good night's rest. Impossible to fall...

The Art Deco building this hotel is housed in is one of the highlights of staying here. It's great to see some of the original features of the old Superior Oil Company building, particularly on the ground floor. The downstairs restaurant is gorgeous too. The rooms and the rooftop have probably seen better days (rooftop in particular) but they're minimal...

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.
