We stayed at the Standard for one night to celebrate my fiancee's birthday. Bottom line: if you are coming to hang out at the rooftop and bars, great. If you are coming for a luxury room, don't stay here. The hotel feels like it is the set of "American Hustle" but it also feels like it hasn't been updated since the disco era. The rooms are bare which would be fine if they were super clean. Instead, the room we stayed in was dingy and worn. There were rust and dirt stains in the shower and the all tile bathroom had a layer of dirt on the tile. There are a lot of fluorescent lights that flickered on and off. Definitely not worth 200+ a night.

Upside, the rooftop was amazing. The views are great and there are cute waterbed cabanas by the pool. The beer garden is also a great place to hang out. But these don't make up for the subpar rooms unless you don't plan to spend any time in your room.

If you do decide to stay here, try parking at Pershing Square. It's a lot cheaper than the hotel lot and only a few blocks away.

Sorry to hear that our room design wasn't to your liking but happy to hear that you enjoyed visiting our rooftop and Biergarten!

Stayed for three nights. Location was great for getting to the Staples Centre and the mtero, but not a big fan of the hotel. We booked through Priceline so didn't know what hotel we were getting until after we'd booked, but luckily I was tere with my girlfriend - two platonic friends could have a bit of an awkward arrival when the find the shower wall is glass only with nothing to block it from view in the bedroom... I asked for one thing during the three days I was there - a price list for the mini-bar, but never received one - based on drinks prices in the uber-trendy rooftop bar I probably wouldn't have purchased anything anyway! Speaking of the rooftop pool/bar, yes it's cool if you're into that sort of thing, but luckily we decided to go up and check it out before putting ourswimming trunks on - good job as we would have looked like right idiots if we had walked up dressed for a swim! Nevertheless, the bed was comfy, and our floor was quiet (7th flr I think).

Hi Brett and thank you for staying with us during your L.A stay! Our website does show images and descriptions of the rooms to try and avoid any 'platonic' embarrassment! We can also provide modesty screens for those traveling with a friend.
We're glad you enjoyed your stay with us!

We stayed here one night a couple of weeks ago; flying straight in and arriving after 15 hours worth of flying we were delighted with our room and the front desk service. The rooms looked a little small on the website but were definitely much larger than expected once we checked in; well pleased with the space, and the quirky amenities; thought the bed was super comfortable and had a great laugh at the walls in the gym! A very cool, hip spot - and a good quick walk to Staples Centre (just what we needed), would definitely stay again. Lastly, the bar staff were awesome, and the outside courtyard area is perfect for an arvo drink in the sun.

Me and my mate stayed here for a few days. we got mixed up with this one and the one in hollywood. thankfully they had a room and could let us stay here.
we were not even 10 mins away from staples centre which was main purpose of our trip.
the rooftop bar was amazing. though the drinks were a bit on the pricey side they were well worth it.
the only thing i have to complain about is the shower. i stayed with a male friend and you can clearly see the shower from the bedroom. there is a big clear window into it. that wasnt really something that you want when staying with a friend. i would say this hotel suits more couples than friends.
other than that was great hotel.

We do try and show the glass shower in our pictures on the hotel website and hope that it wasn't too awkward for you! Thanks for writing the review and we'd love to welcome you back again the next time you visit Los Angeles.

We stayed one night here at the standard, and enjoyed our stay. Gorg view of of downtown LA at the rooftop bar, and a very cool vibe/scene! I was skeptical when I read the reviews, but the hotel is very nice and great staff! The rooms are very big and nice. The bathtub could have been little more cleaner but overall it was pretty nice and clean room. It can get a little loud at night, but I was so tired that it really did not bother me. We had breakfast at the restaurant downstairs, and it was delic and gorg outdoor patio. We loved our stay!
