The Standard, Hollywood

West Hollywood

In 1998, at the height of Austin Powers mania, the Standard was converted from a '60s retirement home to a tongue-in-chic shag pad: The brightly hued bedrooms come with minibars peddling condoms, and the space-age influence extends to the groovy lobby carpeting and the furniture. The schtick is looking a little weary these days, but the poolside lounge remains popular with a see-and-be-seen scene, and the staff are more welcoming than you might expect at a property where image is so crucial.
