Hotels >The Standard Hotel Hollywood
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.
LA Sleeping: Stay one night. If you are from anywhere but LA and want to stay in a hotel when you are visiting that sums up everything you think LA should be, then stay at the Standard... but only for one night. One night is all you need to be entertained by its "LA" ridiculousness from the bizarre furniture, rooms, live model in the case behind the lobby, etc... If you stay a second night, the nostalgia kind of wares off...
No Dead Beats Here. A very hip and modern place to be.You eill get an eyeful no matter what part of the hotel you are in. As far as service? Well no hotel is perfect. But if your looking for a happening and interesting place to visit..this is it.You won't be bored
Not a standard bar. We like the laid-back feel in the lobby--it's less like a bar and more like a spacious cocktail party where all the guests are mingling freely. Grab a chaise near the pool and relax--but do it early, they close this area down about 12am.
Trendy Tourists. Recommended the Standard to some trendy tourist friends visiting from out of town, and they absolutely loved it. Terminally hip, glamorously superficial and thoroughly entertaining, the Standard epitomizes everything they believe about L.A. And though it's not my regular scene, I had a blast visiting their room (get a south-facing room, preferrably on a corner), hanging out in the bar and making merry out by the pool. Reminded me how fun this side of L.A. can be if you don't take it too seriously.
