The Standard Downtown LA Review

The Standard Downtown LA Review

This past weekend, Vans put me up at the The Standard’s Downtown LA locale. Upon arrival, I was hooked up with the 590 sq. ft. corner room, dubbed the Humongous. And humongous it was. Platform king bed, massive shower, looong work desk, etc. The room was also outfitted with free WiFi, a big plus in my world. And yes, everything was well-designed, comfortable and clean.

There’s only one word to describe the bathroom: epic. Fully tiled with an open shower, separate wash closet, basin sink, Kiss My Face organic bath products and windows everywhere. Wow.

It’s all in the details. The Standard boasts an extremely well-curated mini-bar with all your favorite drinks, snacks and other goods, including The Standard-branded swim trunks and flip flops (more on that in a second). My man Benjamin now has his Boxed Water available there as well. Much respect.

The rooftop bar/pool is amazing (if you forgot your pool kit, there’s one in the room). It’s a very popular nightlife spot in LA – with Friday and Saturday being near impossible to get in – but as a guest of the hotel you can skip the line +1 with no issues. The view up there is unreal and the atmosphere is killer. Recommended.

Many thanks to Vans! The OTW launch was stellar. Check HS for more on that.
