The Standard Downtown LA

The Standard Downtown LA

****

What do you get if you cross James Bond bachelor chic, mid-century metropolitan architecture and acid-bright pop-culture wit? The Standard Downtown LA. This fun and funky downtown boutique hotel in Los Angeles bears all the outré hallmarks of dynamic hotelier André Balazs: one of the coolest bars in LA, baths big enough for basketball players, and on-the-money decor that cries out to be a Sixties-era film set.

Highlights:

  • LA's coolest urban hangout

  • Signature rooftop pool with scarlet astroturf

  • Indulge your secret-agent style fantasies

Smith extra

Two complimentary cocktails in the Lobby Bar. Smith members staying in a Penthouse will receive VIP access to the Rooftop with an exclusive reserved table and two free cocktails (must be booked; tables only held for 15 minutes after booking time).

In the know

Also need to know:

Pets allowed (US$100 flat fee). There are smoking and non-smoking rooms; smoking is not permitted in the indoor public areas.Mood lighting, scented candles, giant mirrors and treat-filled mini-bars make the Standard’s rooms the perfect set for recreating those fantasy movie moments… Groovy, baby. The windows actually open, too.

Mr and Mrs Smith reviews

On my first visit to Los Angeles some ten years ago I stayed in the downtown area of the city, MacArthur Park to be exact; a place made famous by the song of the same name (did somebody really leave a cake out in the rain?). On my first day I discovered a masked jogger in the park and, a week later, the people I was staying with were making a documentary about him. That’s Los Angeles – strange and wonderful things are expected to happen.

As a travelling DJ and musician I have tasted the delights of many of the world’s hotels, more often than not only for a brief interlude before the airport
