The Standard, Downtown L.A

550 S. Flower St., Los Angeles, California, 90071, USA

Built in 1955 as the headquarters of Standard Oil, the building was completely revamped in 2002 under the sharp eye of owner André Balazs, to become a sleek, cutting-edge hotel with spacious guest rooms. The indoor-outdoor rooftop lounge in a stunning setting has a happening social scene, but be prepared for some attitude at the door. The ping-pong lounge is a haven for people-watching.

  • Rudy's barbershop on-site
  • 24/7 coffee shop
  • lively rooftop lounge

CONS

  • disruptive party scene on weekends and holidays
