Stay Here - The Standard Hollywood
The Standard Hollywood is a production industry oasis. Sitting poolside on your laptop, you are surrounded by conversations about the biz. Producers, directors, art buyers and graphic designers alike meet over an al fresco lunch (by the pool), while the evening brings LA’s chicest fashionistas and hipsters to the party scene.
Their Cactus Lounge, just off the pool, is comfortable and airy and the restaurant, open 24/7 (unusual for LA), reminisces a 50’s diner. The rooms are simple and comfortable and despite their low overnight valet rate, there is plenty of meter parking up and down Sunset. The accommodating staff are industry-savvy and the hotel is centrally located on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood, making getting around town convenient.
The Standard Hollywood, 8300 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, CA 90069, (323) 650-9090
