Originally constructed as the headquarters of Superior Oil in 1956, The Standard, Downtown LA is midcentury California architecture par excellence. The 207-room hotel greets guests with a marble lobby and offers massive guest rooms, a rooftop pool and bar with stunning panoramic views of Los Angeles, an intimate garden bar, and a stellar 24-hour restaurant. There is also a quarry’s worth of marble on the facade and covering the lobby, which is, well, very impressive.
