The Standard is iconic, worth a visit if nothing else except for their awesome Ping Pong bar. The rooms are made for the minimalist, but they are lacking a sort of coziness. Although the decor was unique, it wasn't my style and made the room feel a bit cold and outdated.
We initially had some trouble with our room (it was the wrong size bed) and they weren't exactly quick to fix it - in fact, one of the front desk agents was quite rude. We tried again with someone else who was great and we really appreciated his help.
The hotel boasts about their 24 hour room service, but when we tried to take advantage, they were out of almost everything on their menu! Thank goodness they had delicious French fries.
Overall, I would not recommend The Standard for a long stay but it works for a quick night in DTLA, especially because of such close access to everything else.
