The Standard Downtown LA

The Standard Hotel used state preservation tax credits to convert the original Superior Oil Co. Headquarters. Existing features—such as the exterior, front doors, and lobby—anchor the design. To accommodate guest traffic the renovation moved the primary entry to the rear, adding an outdoor lounge and dining area. On the upper floors, deep office floorplates necessitated extensive reworking and special configuration of the guest rooms. Rooftop, a poolside bar has popularized the concept of the stylish budget hotel and contributed to the revitalization of downtown Los Angeles.
