Stayed here for 2 nights and booked the Gigantic room. Room lived up to its name and was huge with a fantastic large bathroom and bathtub. Hotel rooftop was a great place to eat and chill by the pool. Cafe downstairs does a great breakfast and good coffee. Would recommend the Gigantic room to anyone wanting a larger size hotel room
We had a great stay at The Standard. From the lobby, to the rooms, to the pooldeck, this hotel is as chic as can be. My wife and I opted for the Gigantic room. Bathroom was huge with a stepped up platform bed and large L-shaped orange couch. We had friends come by and there was enough room for all of us to spread out and be comfortable. 4-stars because the rooms are overpriced, but overall a great hotel if you want to splurge for the night. 👍🏼🍾
"Comfortable, Easy, Convenient"
I've stayed at this hotel a few times and have been pleased with each visit. First off, it's dog-friendly and not in that 'dogs allowed, but we really don't want them' kind of way. They actually welcome dogs don't get all uptight and charge extra, and really make it comfortable to travel with your pet. Hotel and room decor is modern, simple, pleasing. King bed is on a low platform and the shower is huge. In-room fridge stock and well-stocked bar/snacks. There's a restaurant on the first floor, bar with ping pong tables on the second, and a terrific roof top bar with a pool. The rooftop serves tasty bar food, like a decadent grilled cheese and healthy kale salad. The hotel location is convenient to freeways and you can walk a block to a Starbucks. Minor point: could use more attention to detail when restocking the room after cleaning. Seems we always need to search down water (ok...wine, don't judge) glasses for the room.
"The bathtub in the Gigantic room is worth every penny!"
Absolutely LOVED my stay here. It was for one night as a "stay-cation" with my boyfriend to celebrate New Years. We actually stayed on January 2 due to work schedules, so the hotel was mellow and quiet after all the parties had calmed down. Our room was one of my favorite I've ever stayed in, and I've stayed in a lot. It was the Gigantic room. Regardless of how much extra you have to pay, spring for this room if you have even any inkling of taking a bath. I took THREE within a 24 hour period in the amazing HUGE bathtub. Both of us could literally sit side by side with our backs reclined against the back of the tub. It was incredibly indulgent. The room also has dimmable lighting, which makes the experience more romantic, if that's what you're looking for. We were in room 907 to be specific and the view from here is great of Downtown LA, with the Bonaventure as the main attraction. (Another hotel I love!) Their;s big windows which have two levels of shade, Venetian blinds and curtains, so you can block out all the lights and morning sun for a good nights sleep (or sleep in!) The rooftop bar was also really great with friendly service. Their signature margarita will go down easy but don't let it fool you, it's STRONG! Two was more than enough for this lightweight. I took a dip in the pool in the morning. I was the only one crazy enough to do so on a cold January day, but I had to indulge swimming amongst all the skyscrapers. It was outstanding! The restaurant at the Standard had a good burger, but the chicken sandwich was a little bland. The atmosphere was fun and swanky though and it was nice to know we could saunter down there at any time since they are open 24 hours. Check in and out was easy and friendly. And the hotel is within walking distance to most things you want to check out in Downtown.
"Minimalist old-fashion coolness"
Stayed there one night to explore LA downtown and was really happy with the place. The ground floor is furnished with cool furniture and actual works of art by Holzer and Calder. The check-in is easy and friendly: we even got a no-problem upgrade to a bigger bed when we asked for it. The location is convenient, although driving downtown is challenging at best, and finding parking is near impossible outside valet. The room was well-designed, spacious and quiet enough, but the rumor of downtown traffic finds its way in a little. The bathroom is awesome, and so is the complimentary toiletry. The wifi connection is reliable and free up to 5 devices. The heating system is a little surprising as it is the original 1970's Honeywell thermostat still on the wall, but it works! The highlight for me was the rooftop terrace with its great views of downtown, its pool and its great layout. This is a wonderful, super trendy hotel, with all the advantages of modern, worry-free traveling. I would go back there if I had business downtown.
