Why Stay At The Standard Downtown LA
Only in L.A. would a relatively new hotel be considered a classic, and The Standard, Downtown L.A. has that distinction. It's emblematic of all things SoCal, with a modernist-meets-over-the-top design and a trendy scene on the rooftop bar.
Hip digs, reasonable prices, and a too-cool night scene are the draws at this André Balazs outpost. The trendy, whimsical interiors here are fun and don't take themselves too seriously: both George Jetson and Austin Powers would feel at home hobnobbing over cocktails in the canary-yellow restaurant, or lounging on the shocking-pink sectional in the lobby. Accommodations range from 280-square-foot "Cheap" rooms to 1,000-square-foot penthouses, and with their platform beds, predominantly black-and-white décor, and abstract art, the hotel's 205 rooms are chic studies in minimalism. Funky design elements are everywhere, from massive Roman foot sculptures in guest bathrooms set in the middle of the room (with transparent shower doors that provide little privacy) to the bright-red podlike cabanas housing vibrating waterbeds that surround the pool. The Rooftop Bar, with its stunning downtown views, potent mojitos, and movies projected onto a nearby building façade, attracts the young, the beautiful, and the soon-to-be-famous. Being Downtown also means a more urban experience, complete with proximity to performance venues (Disney Concert Hall, Staples Center) and new restaurants and bars.
Don't miss a visit to the newly revamped Shop at The Standard, Downtown L.A., which stocks must-have local designer items—everything from Toms Shoes to Clare Vivier bags and vintage shades.
Arrive at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), which is approximately 20 miles (20-60 minutes, depending on traffic) from the hotel.550 South Flower, Los Angeles, California, United States
