Hip digs, reasonable prices, and a too-cool night scene are the draws at this André Balazs outpost. The trendy, whimsical interiors here are fun and don’t take themselves too seriously: both George Jetson and Austin Powers would feel at home hobnobbing over cocktails in the canary-yellow restaurant, or lounging on the shocking-pink sectional in the lobby. Accommodations range from 300-square-foot “Medium” rooms to 1,000-square-foot penthouses. With their platform beds, predominantly black-and-white décor, and abstract art, the hotel’s 205 rooms are chic studies in minimalism. Funky design elements are everywhere, from the massive Roman foot sculptures in guest bathrooms to the bright-red podlike cabanas housing vibrating waterbeds that surround the pool. The Rooftop Bar, with its stunning downtown views, potent mojitos, and movies projected onto a nearby building façade, attracts the young, the beautiful, and the soon-to-be-famous.

Room to Book:

Any of the 710-square-foot loft-style "Wow!" rooms, whose massive bathtubs are big enough for Entourage-style group soaks.

Insider Tip:

Don’t miss a visit to the newly revamped Shop at The Standard, Downtown L.A., which stocks must-have local designer items—everything from Toms Shoes to Clare Vivier bags and vintage shades.
