"a hotel with unique personality"
I have spent 5 nights in this hotel in Downtown LA, it's not a conventional and boring business hotel, this place has his own personality. Rooms are minimalistic in the furniture style and there is a glass wall between the room and the shower. The rooftop bar and pool is busy every day, there are parties even on weekdays, this hotel is definitely more fun and it feels young. I had lunch on the first floor restaurant and one dinner at the rooftop, food was tasty, not bad at all.
I booked this hotel for a night as we were doing a road trip and had a night in LA. I picked it as I've stayed in the one in NYC and more important they take dogs and we had two. We arrived in the middle of the worst storm in 20 years. The staff was so helpful with luggage checking in everything. Can't say enough good things there. The room was ultra modern to the point of cold but that is the style. The shower has a glass wall and the bed is next to it no curtain so make sure you don't care there. It's convenient too a lot of things. Only valet parking so add $'s there. We didn't get pool privileges as it was pouring. Looked amazing. The price point for restaurant was high but as is the hotel. Staff is really the key selling point.
"A lively experience "
Can't fault the hotel....friendly staff...great rooms....urban and trendy feel throughout!! Take plenty of 💰 because it is not cheap....but this is LA !! Great experience!! The only fault...there is no currency exchange in the hotel but soon found a local store...10 min walk away!!
"Downtown LA is so lively!"
And The Standard Downtown is a great perch! There are tons of restaurants within walking distance and a great rooftop bar as well. The staff could not be lovelier! I am a big Standard fan. Love the West Hollywood Standard too, and consider it my home away from home in LA!
"A Neighborhood Pick-Up Hotel"
Full disclosure- I assume I am not this hotel's target demographic (I am a hip, upper-middle class, middle aged woman). I would call this the Below Standard Hotel. They try to be cute by making the halls and rooms look like old (stodgy) corporate offices. What you get is a barren room with too few pillows, no room to put things away, and no bathroom amenities. The most odd thing about our room was the floor to ceiling window in the bathroom that opens to the bedroom so everyone can watch you taking a shower and doing your business. Very strange! Service was very poor. First night our room was not serviced until we called at 5pm to complain. Room service trays not removed, despite calling room service to let them know to come pick up the tray. Forget getting to enjoy the pool on the roof. The 20 year olds who live in the neighborhood come here and use this as Thier party place. The place is mobbed (so great if you are the target demographic) and the party goes on all night long. So buyer be ware, this place caters to a very specific demographic.
