Hotels in Hollywood

Desert Nights at the Standard hotel is a great way to check out bands in a casual—yet very Hollywood—setting. Wednesday nights.

A dramatic $30 million renovation in 2005 wrapped this onetime celebrity favorite in a hip new Dodd Mitchell design (while retaining much of the building’s vintage hand-crafted woodwork), bringing it back to vibrant life.

Located in a mostly residential neighborhood and within walking distance of Hollywood Boulevard, the tidy exterior of this longstanding value motel is flanked by palm trees, while the rear overlooks the pool area.
