What I liked:

Despite the tiny bathrooms and now a bit ageing interior, this hotel stills excites and entices with well planned details, very sexy atmosphere and excellent staff. It's all Hollywood here.

Hotel Description

The Standard Hollywood is the motel of your dreams. Sixties modernist, blinding white, with Astro-Turf surrounding the obligatory swimming pool. And the neighborhood — not some desert highway but the Sunset Strip, site of many a debauch, from Tallulah Bankhead’s Twenties exhibitionism to the heavy-metal excesses of the Eighties and beyond.

From the upside-down sign, the funky 24-hour coffee shop, to the label on the thermostat marked BLOW HARDER, it’s clear that the Standard is relentless in its pursuit of insouciant LA cool, with a generous helping of irony: Warhol print curtains, shag carpets on ceilings as well as floors, minibars full of lowbrow candies and house-brand condoms. And it’s not all kitsch — the Standard is modern and comfortable enough where it really counts, with orthopedic mattresses on the beds and nods to modern cooking even in the intentionally retro coffee-shop restaurant.

In the end it’s worth stressing that it’s more motel than hotel. There’s very little that’s luxurious about it, and stylish though it may be, it could use a coat of fresh paint here and there. If it’s white-glove luxury you’re after then there’s plenty of that available elsewhere in town — the Standard is for guests who will trade the occasional hitch in function or service for a vibrant nightlife and a scene that’s unrelentingly hip. And if that last clause is enough to give you a bit of a migraine, you know what to do…

How to get there:

The Standard Hollywood hotel is a 30-minute drive from Los Angeles International Airport but the trip can take just over an hour depending on traffic. Valet parking is available for $34 USD per night.
