Lindsay at the front desk was the best. Super helpful!! The views from the roof top bar are the best on downtown.

You really need to do your homework before deciding on this hotel. Service was very good. Valet was very frieindly and attentive. The front desk staff was very welcoming. Opening the door to your room is when you're hit with this blast from the past 70's decor.. You begin to think.. Did I really pay this much for this hotel?...

My mum and I stayed here and we found it comfortable, the food fabulous, really fresh. The staff really lovely, went out of their way to help with tours etc. Easy to get taxi's and to the subway. The bathroom very spacious and will stay there again when we visit.

And I knew that going in, since I read many of the helpful reviews below. But I made some discoveries on my own, not all of them good. But I’ll start with the ones that are. The location is very convenient for downtown, just seconds from the 6th Street exit off the 110. If you’re going to be coming and...

We stayed using a deal from Jetsetter. Not planning to be in a hotel much over a weekend visit to LA we didn't want to pay too much for a room where we would not spend a lot of time. I read all the warnings... it's a hip and trendy, happening spot for young Angelenos. And so we felt OLD!...

And that is what is supposed to be...and the first hint of it is that their hotel sign is upside down. I guess some would say it is a trendy, chic sort of hotel, but I and my two friends did NOT like it at all. To me it looked like and felt like a college dorm room. The beds...

I stayed at this Hotel with a good friend of mine, we arrived before check in time but they had a room already available for us. They also offered to hold our luggage if there was not a room available. The lady at the desk was super friendly and looked as if she truly enjoyed her job. The hotel has...

They tried really hard to be cool and failed at many things. I was at The Standard for a tech conference and they had horrible wifi. The staff was not accommodating and the room was very under furnished. The good things were the bed was comfortable and the room was clean.

Think about everything you hate from the sixties style - too much plastic, uncomfortable furniture, psychedelic color combinations. Now, make that a hotel and you have... The Standard. The bed is on the floor. The bathroom has no privacy - but anyone with a view inside your window will get a great peep show if you don't go to extraordinary...

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.
