The Standard, Hollywood
Ranked #16 of 19 Hotels in West Hollywood
Reviewed 27 April 2014

My wife and I went to a concert at the House of Blues on Sunset Strip, and knew we wouldn't feel like driving back to San Diego afterwards - we decided to stay a night at The Standard. Location wise, it's great for the concert, being just steps away from HoB, and not too terribly hard to get to (for a hotel in LA). There's plenty of restaurants nearby for a meal whenever.

Since we were only there for one night, we didn't spend time at the diner, or the (famous?) pool, but they both looked cool from walking by.

It is clear that the hotel is older, but they've done a really good job updating the lobby and rooms to have a kitschy feel - blue lights in the hallways to look funky, a woman in a box behind the front desk (as "art"), and retro-modern fixtures and furniture in the rooms. For example, even though the bathroom was tiny in terms of square feet, it had been remodeled to contain a roman shower with a glass door and a french drain. This kept the room feeling open, functional, and up-to-date.

Other reviewers had complaints about noise, but we had none (other than the construction crew across the street starting at 10am...hardly something the hotel can control!). There were no rowdy neighbors or crazy pool noise when we stayed.

I'd totally stay there again. (The price is a little high, but it was fun, and cheaper than Andaz across the street!)

Room Tip: Room 333 looks onto the street, but is otherwise pretty secluded and quiet. I think even-numbered 3...

My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay in a roomy suite. We were treated to two balconies, which had great city views. The shower is the best! It is HUGE with two amazing shower heads and one hand held. We had a delicious breakfast delivered to our room, and the best part was we didnt have to sit at the edge of the bed to eat; the suite had a large dining table. What a fun hotel with a creative edge to it.

I come onto town two or three times a year to fit actors for films (I'm a costume designer)
The Standard is the perfect location
(In the middle of everything). The rooms have great light and full length mirrors, balconies and great service. The restaurant is unpretentious, has really terrific food and open all night! The scene around the pool and the DJ's give it a cool vibe. Actors love a cool vibe. So do I.

The cool and competent staff,many of them long-timers, sets the tone at this hip yet unpretentious spot on the landmark Sunset Strip. My usual home away from home in West Hollywood. Ask for a city view.

I had a pleasant but unmemorable stay at this hotel. The plus:
- I booked an extra-large room with pool view. The size ended-up being bigger than what I thought.
- good, smiley and youngish service

The minus:
- noisy: the hotel is cool and friendly. But the party gets into your room. 3 out 4 nights were noisy. The hotel provides earplugs in your room. Be aware, there is a chance you will have to use them.
- the rooms and the corridors are a little bit smelly. I felt the time for a quite deep refurbish has come ...
- the pool area looks a little bit 80s
- extremely high parking fees (34$/ day), although this is a Hollywood Classic

Conclusion: before going back i will try something else, below (hilton) and above (W) the 'standard of the Standard' :-)

The staff at this hotel made my family and I feel so welcome. They made my 2 year old happy with the pool and the great food. The room was very clean and the amenities were fantastic. My husband and I want to come back just the two of us. Thank you Standard!
