Hotels >The Standard Downtown La
huge category room, not recommend hotel, great restaurant staff, great bars, poor room service, pricey bar drinks, good food
Pricey food and drinks but the rooftop bar is phenomenal and a must-see LA experience. Summer time they have pool parties where you can soak in the sun.
Rooftop bar = overrated.
Everyone talks about the rooftop bar at the Standard in DTLA. The service is great, but the atmosphere and the drinks are a solid 2.5 stars in my book. The steep parking rate isn't worth it to go spend a few hours at an overplayed downtown bar.
*The wife is reading this over my shoulder and she wanted everyone to know that the "lemondrop was really good"
Great Htel BUT.... It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
The illest hotel and rooftop scene in Downtown L.A.. Blame this tower of hipper-than-thou power for igniting the Downtown L.A. revival back in 2001. Since then, this quirky cool sleepover spot has become a de rigeur destination as much for the bedroom action as for the lobby billiards and rooftop bar and pool, which draw a colorful mix of tourists and local scenesters. Rooms--available in sizes ranging from Huge and Gigantic to Humongous and Wow!-each feature a retro-futuristic look: Shiny silver throw pillows, barcode-inspired wall designs, low-lying platform beds, lava lamps ... you get the idea. The rooftop bar and pool is the center of the hotel's late-night action, where faux topiaries, a red astro turf sundeck with waterbed cabanas, slick Formica furniture, staff dressed in red cheerleading uniforms and endless views of the city are just the beginning.

This place is a gem in LA. There are a lot of great bars to go to but none as lovely as this rooftop bar. It's great for a date or a night out with your gal pals. I went here with my bf a lot when we first start dating and just relaxed on the sofas and looked onto the buildings and into the starry night sky. The heat lamps keep you really warm too!
I have also been several times with my posse. Last time we went we met this really great bartender. I think his name was Mike? Anyways, he served us Hello Kitty shots which was SO fun. First of all the the liqueur thats used in them is called Ty Ku and the bottle LIGHTS UP!! It's also mixed with vodka. Went down real easy. It made our night very entertaining lol.
I always meet great people here. If I could, I'd come every weekend.
Love It. I feel like I'm on vacation in the middle of the city. You can almost reach out and touch the buildings next to it.
The food was as hot as the service!!. Don?t let the hip vibe of this delicious little yellow restaurant fool you. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. There was not only light healthy fair for my better half , but there was also some really great meaty options for me sink my teeth into. We started our meal with this amped up version of a caprese salad. They don?t use the standard fresh mozzarella. Instead it is served with Italian burrata that our server explained is a combination of fresh mozzarella and cream. It lived up to the servers testimony. My partner ordered the beet salad and the crab cakes. Enjoying both. He did ask for a little more of the grapefruit sauce for the crab cakes. This was brought promptly. I chose the pork chop dinner also at the recommendation of our server. I can?t tell you what a breath of fresh air it is to have a server that knows their menu well and works to please their guests. The pork chop was amazing, tender and should have come with it?s own zip code. We were offered dessert, but went with two French pear martinis instead. This place really hits all the senses and does it very well, and without draining your wallet! We will be returning soon!!!
great staff. my experience with this place was great, i had great staff to help me out, if you go onto the roof you see the whole city and its just incredible. the rooms were great and getting checked in was easy.
Great Roof-top View. You cannot beat the view from the top floor, however your patience may be tested if you go on a weekend and do not get in before a line forms.
The Standard. One of my favorite spots in LA. I love the rooftop, especially at night because you're surrounded by all the skyscrapers. Just a beautiful sight to see! Plus, they always have events there, which are usually free!
credit card fraud. i just got my capital one bill. i have two illegal charges that were made there on my card number. my card was never lost or stolen. somebody got my number and manually put the number in to make charges at this place. i have never even been to california. figures californians. somebody on the payroll there was in on this illegal activity.
