"Gorgeous building, cute restaurant downstairs "
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 and pleasant. They do need electrical and USB sockets by the bed. The glass wall between the room and shower makes an assumption that everyone travels solo or in a couple. Probably not ideal for everyone. Staff were friendly.
Avoid this overrated, poorly managed nightmare. If you value your security and integrity, avoid this rather unpleasant charade!!! There were serious events at this hotel which required 100USD per hour security.. Which experienced 10USD per hour security. I would love a 5 minute conversation with the owner!! knowing, of course, this will never happen. Make a choice "The Standard"! Nightclub, "off the street", or, Hotel with a guest only club and bar on the roof. Attempting to do both, is simply greedy and misguided.
We stayed in LA for 4 nights, as we were on our honey moon we got upgraded to a junior suite, although there was nothing 'junior' about it, it was a massive room/ living room with a very stylish huge bathroom. I loved the shower and getting ready every night in the lit mirror. The breakfast was good. The roof top bar had a weird timetable and we would not have minded if it was open for a bit later as it had a very nice city view. The hotel had a car park, which was handy as we could park our rental Mustang right there. Overall nice experience at the Standard Downtown.
"Love it so much - it is my second home!"
Okay, these folks understand good customer service. Starting from day one, they got me. So staying brand loyal to a hotel is key and they are now my go to when I am in LA. The staff is nice and understanding - no LA attitude - just great service. The sleep - it is the only place I can sleep well. The beds are ranked as high as the Heavenly Bed from the Westin without the commercial treatment. Also, whatever you need, whenever you need it - they will have it for you. So, if you are in town for business or pleasure and need a central place to stay - look no further!
