The Standard

8300 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, California, 90069, USA

Hotelier André Balazs created this kitschy Sunset Strip hotel out of a former retirement home, and a '70s aesthetic abounds with pop art, shag carpets, and suede sectionals in the lobby, and beanbag chairs, surfboard tables, and Warhol poppy-print curtains in the rooms. Fodor's readers report that service issues and staff attitudes are commonplace. Yet scensters appreciate the nightly DJs spinning, socializing on the pool deck, and the choose-your-own-checkout time. The wildly popular eatery ALMA rocks Sunday brunch.

PROS

  • late-night dining on-site
  • choose your own checkout time
  • secret nightclub mmhmmm

CONS

  • for partying more than for resting
  • staff big on attitude rather than service
