The LA Standard, lots of hype, no substance

Posted Aug 8, 2014
Pros: Nothing really. I only stayed here because a group of us were all meeting in LA and this was the hotel that was picked.
Cons: Just about everything. Update the ammenites, get comfortable beds, try not to be so pretentious - I know that's a lot to ask for LA.
Location: Well directly outside the window was a huge construction truck that started cutting the concrete at 7am...on a Saturday. That was fun to listen to.
The room was terribly 70s from the outdated smoke alarm that went off twice while showering, to the lack of comfort in everything about the room. The bed is a full (not a queen, and nowhere near a king). Then there's this cheesy pallet looking platform the bed is on - just confused as to why it's there. There are more amenities at a Starbucks than at this hotel. I suppose I'm just not the 'target market' for this hotel. Apparently it's geared to the LA liberal socialite scene.

Best Hotel

Posted Aug 7, 2014
We intended to see various areas of LA. We ended up spending most of the trip at this hotel. The food was great, staff was super friendly, the pool/ rooftop bar was amazing! We love this place!! Tons to do!

Very disappointing stay

Posted Jul 31, 2014
Pros: The staff was friendly.
Cons: The hallways and are dark and the decor is ugly. The rooms need to be renovated.
I arrived and learned that I had been upgraded to a WOW Suite. That was great. When I got to the room I was not impressed. While the style won't please everyone (and it didn't please me), I was more concerned by the fact that it was outdated and dirty. The bathroom is all white and the flooring is 1" ceramic tiles. I found a lot of hair in the shower and the counter. The carpeting in the room (1110) was stained. The fabric on the sofa was loose and lifting up. The mattress sits on the floor. There is no box spring or bed frame and because the carpet is dirty, i felt a little too close to the floor for my comfort. Light switches in the room were dirty as well and you have to touch those so it's just gross. The TV is too dim. Light over the sofa did not work. I ordered room service on a number of occasions and while the food was good, you couldn't order items that were served during a different meal period. For a 24-hour operation, this seemed odd to me. On departure there was a line of 3 people in front of me and I waited for about 3 minutes before I gave up since I needed to get to the airport. I would have shared these thoughts with the hotel directly, but didn't have the time.

Downtown Luxury!

Posted Jul 10, 2014
Pros: The staff is amazing, the restaurant offers so much, and then there is the rooftop "Biergarten" and pool!
Location: Being in downtown L.A. makes everything accessible, especially if you're in town for a concert at LA Live.
The Standard is a great place to stay, especially for former city dwellers! As they say in real estate; Location, location, location!

Pros: Clean, staff was very friendly.
Cons: This hotel is probably not the most family friendly. Kids couldn't get to pool because party happening on the roof on a weekday night until very late
Location: Right down town. Wish we would have know there was a food court right across the street.
Stayed for one night. Room was clean. Restaurant is available 24 hours. Party atmosphere.

Perfect location

Posted Jul 6, 2014
Awesome rooftop pool, food, staff, etc. The room was clean and room service was there within minutes. First priority goes to the guests staying at hotel. Great for guests ages 21-35. Not family friendly.
