    Great Service

    Customer service is A+ I have been stayed here several times over the past 10 years and each time i am impressed with the service at this hotel. I made a reservation for two nights and then noticed that my plane left a day earlier than expected. I called reservations and was able to cancel my second night and get a full refund. I was also giving a 2 hour late check out which is more than any other late check out i have been given at other hotels. The staff is very friendly, polite and helpful. This is by far my favorite hotel to stay at.

    Parking is expensive

    Subway construction ruins stay

    Not much- out dated decor, staff was rude and not accommodating

    The noise from subway construction outside my room was horrible. When I complained the staff offered me the ability to check out without being charged. I explained that was not possible as I had been drinking and did not want to drive after drinking, and it was 1000 pm on Friday night! They were tearing up the road with huge machines to build a subway and they were doing this at night so as not to disrupt day time traffic. After we continued our conversation the staff stained offered me the option to check out. He then said he would comp my valet parking and drinks that were on my room tab. When I checked out the next morning he had not removed any of the said items. Horrible service! These rooms overlooking 6th and Flower should not be sold to customers. I will be contacting both Kayak and the Standard asking for a refund.

    The minibar was the most complete minibar I've ever seen. They had everything from tic tacs and gum to shaving cream and maps. It was very helpful and even some really nice hotels only have water and one or two snacks. This was really interesting for me. The restaurant food was good, and the room decor was funky and interesting as well.

    The view wasn't the best, but it was fine for one night.

    Playful, artful, and accommodating

    I love the style at the Standard. It has character without sacrificing quality, and the food at the restaurant is superb.

    Not much negative to say. Water collected in the soap dish. Uhhhh....?

    The Standard knows how to utilize their funding, b

    The food was excellent. Definitely above Standard. :) Their minimalist style was executed well. Food was delivered quickly for room service.

    There was no alarm clock or clock in the room. This posed many problems for me. I had to turn on the tv and flip the channel to get a momentary glimpse of the time. Also, the mini fridge was crammed full of drinks so that there was no room to house leftover food. The gym was stagnant, dark, and claustrophobic. The equipment was in great shape and functional, but being in that room was a struggle mentally. The walls were a terrible wood-paneling that accentuated the windowless, dark smallness of the room. There was no music, or tv to drown out the silence. Also, on my last morning I found that my arm was eaten up by what could only have been bedbugs.

    Rooftop pool was really nice.

    The room itself wasn't really comfortable. I get the minimalistic / boutique feel the hotel was going for, but it was very basic and didn't seem worth the price. Also, the see through bathroom wall (from the bed area) was a bit odd...it should at least be opaque.
