I had a terrible experience with @Airbnb this past trip to LA.
When I got to the rental, someone was already staying there.
End result: could not find a last minute replacement through them. I had three dogs with me so that made the task extra difficult.
Luckily, discovered that The Standard is pet friendly [& they stay for free!].
there is valet and two self parking lots behind the hotel. the lower level is cheaper by a few dollars.
when I was there it was $20 for valet, $15 for one of the lots & $10 for the other.
the back of the hotel. there is a small seating area with a fireplace and foosball.
the ‘huge’ room
420-square-foot, king platform bed, tons of natural light, open plan room with soaking bathtub, sitting area, extra closet space, and extra-long desk.
the shower/tub divides the room & bathroom. there is a separate room with toilet.
next to this tub is where the tv/minibar/closet space is. Overall, very roomy for a couple and their two small dogs + medium-sized dog. 🙂
The hotel is surprisingly pretty quiet. You may hear doors shutting and an occasional siren, though. But that’s just expected in LA.
Hopefully, next time I can try the 24/7 restaurant, Hermanos coffee shop, and maybe even the salon. I’ve been to The Rooftop (but it’s been ages!) which has nice views, music, and drinks.
They have a thing called “Standard Time” where you can pick your check-in/out time (for a small fee).
I’ll probably skip the Airbnb next time (I’ve had WAY too many horrible experiences) and just book a room here next time.
got to enjoy walking around DTLA near the hotel.
