great place, great view, pricey drinks, worst wait service, good stiff drinks, best small bar, great sunday service
Right on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, this hotel is the place to stay if you're looking for a par-tay.
Whatever. After many years of enjoying the LA nightlife, I did not know what to really expect when I finaly decided to have a drink at this bar. Let me just say, I have had better times at lesser places. It was a mixed crowd of fake people and those who bougth into the reputation of the place (I included). It does have a great view, but it quickly turns ugly when you realize the price of a beer ($8!!!). We ended up leaving to enjoy a few other bars down the street The place has potential though, maybe a better night with a better crowd.
Don't expect anything special!. Just looked old and dingy. looks like they tried to distract you away from the old dinginess with a cheap art deco look (like my bright orange tiled bathroom and a cheap little teardrop beanbag in the corner)... my favorite though was how there was no heat or a/c control, only a "fan control" with a knob... hope you dont go in on a chilly night like i did b/c only cold air was a blowin'! wtf? only stayed one night. went to the holiday inn express for half the price and was waaaaaay nicer and cleaner and by hollywood blvd..
What a DUMP.
This is one of the most overpriced dumps in all of L.A., if not the worst. It's overpriced and ugly as sin. I mean, who on earth decorated this place? How do they sleep at night?
Just horrible. Absolutely horrible. Someone should put a lid on this sh!thole and be done with it.
An embarrassment. I have been here a few times and had a great time. But I do not intend to bring any guests here again. It was embarrassing how curt and surly the door staff were. As if we are doing them a favor to spend our money here. And believe me, guys, this is not just leveled at you. The attractive women are getting the same attitude. That is why there is a line of guys waiting to get in and no women are around. The staff have to learn to treat people with a little class. No way will I be coming back.
Great View. I love this place. This is one of the best bars in downtown. Sometimes it is difficult t get in on the weekends.
Standard Hotel Hollywood - HORRIBLE. Worst hotel experience I've ever had. The staff was rude, the "suite" I stayed in was an overpriced excuse for a cheap motel room, and the pool/nightclub scene sucked. Daytime manager Kristen was rude and unprofessional and general manager Jordan was even worse. Don't waste your time or money on this dump.
4th of July. tried to hit-up their 4th of july pool-side bbq that was publicized on citysearch. tried to get in but staff said it was for guests only. wouldn't have minded as much if it wasn't for the staff being uptight and pretentious about it.
4th of july at the Standard.
My friends and I tried to go to the 4th of July event at the Standard suggested on Citysearch. We found ourselves turned away from the door because it was a private party. If there was a guest list the Citysearch article should have mentioned it. Since the girl did not have a guest list and did not ask us what our names were to see if we were on the list i found this hard to believe.
My friends and I happily left but not without mentioning the Citysearch article, to which the staff replied that they had never heard of the site. Overall, it was an insulting experience and my interest in hanging out at that place has greatly decreased.
Great Hangout, Gorgeous View, go on Sundays!!!. My favorite place to hang on a Sunday Night. Its not too busy, cool couches and fireplace, decent music but mostly a great place to spend some time with friends and enjoy the cool LA nightline. I havent had any bad experiences with doormen, but I recommend trying the back door (take the stairs instead of the elevator) to avoid any rush.
horrible. What a waste of a view! Music is pop and old at that, the drinks are overpriced, the wait staff is rude and it's full of wannabes trying to look cool. It's bad. Go somewhere else, trust me!
