This place sucks! Yes, good view, but too bad the people working there are starving actors with attitude problems! If you don’t believe me see for yourself, it’s so consistent it will prove itself that way. Sorry mr. real world mtv, you have a stupid job as a bartender “FOR YEARS!”may I add…you sucked on the show, and you still suck! Sorry about the personal note, but that truly goes out to ALL bartenders at Standard Downtown. Personally, I it gives me satisfaction that things didn’t work out for you guys, lame excuse for civilized human beings! Learn something, good service, better tips you idiots! Especially when you charge an arm and leg for a damn drink! You guys should be kissing out butts! Anyways, that goes for ALL the bartenders at Standard Hotel downtown…each one of them are depressing and failed in their careers, which makes me so happy after the BS service they provide and the rudeness, haha! Yes, I’m talking about the new asian girl specifically, (9-1-08)…YOU SUCK AS A BARTENDER!!! Please quit. I bet it didn’t cross your minds that I would write reviews all over the internet about you guys huh? Times have changed and internet communication DOES matter. Learn some manners for god sakes! Let’s talk about the lame excuse they have for security, please guys, it’s a simple job and an entry level position that requires minimum skills. I would seriously hire dogs instead than the staff at Standard, since dogs follow instructions better. First learn the policies and procedures before you think you are an important part of the organization. Anyways, always remember, WE are the people that that make it possible for you having a job due to our disposable income! If you piss us off, guess what, we don’t come back! Haha, which leads to no phone call Friday night for you to work. Chill, we make more an hour than you do a day (that’s why we can afford to pay $15 a drink). Think about it guys, we pay more for a drink than you make by the hour, appreciate us. The guy had no idea how the American justice system works…anyone up for an easy lawsuit…did someone say discrimination? Not a joke in Califronia. The Standard Downtwon has been ripping people off for long enough. They charge $15 for a water drown drink…and they have the nerve to give you attitude while they serve you! Can’t leave this part out…I asked to speak to the manager and no surprise, what a lame excuse for a manager, not even close folks…recommendation to the so-called manager, PLEASE QUIT IMMEDIATELY! Very defensive from the moment I started complaining about his staff. No management skills whatsoever, probably a family hook-up job. He should be fired or PLEASE look for something that works better for you and ESPECIALLY society! This is coming from an MBA and I’m sick and tired of the quality of the service in this country going down. I’m reporting a more detailed version to Standard corporate and the Better Business Bureau and will take these incompetent and disrespectful people down! I was so disrespected that I felt obligated to write this review. Wow, Happy Labor Day everyone, how disrespectful to everything this holiday stands for. One of the beauties of the United States is freedom of speech! The reason I’m writing this review is so those of you out there don’t get the same treatment and to not waste your hard earned money on a horrible place like Standard Downtown. Things will change in the United States, one by one, and horrible service will not be tolerated anymore! I will never go there again obviously, and I hope none of you EVER will!
It's cool,hip, yet relaxed. The people are fun, but they aren't in your face (No noisy, obtrusive kids!). You're close to places to see and things to do. They've got great views, good service. The rooms offer a comfortable place to recharge and relax.
The hotel was great the atmosphere was very luxurious and romantic. Our room was just the budget room but it was not cheap looking at all. We thought the room was very classy and the nightlife was even better. Would recommend to anyone!
