The Standard, West Hollywood
You have just finished your visit of The Hollywood walk of fame and you want to escape the craziness and its tourists? Head towards the Standard Hotel, which is located on Sunset Strip.
This hotel is one of the five Standard Hotels owned by Andre Balazs located in Los Angeles, New York, Miami and soon a new one in London.
This one is an old model that has had an extreme makeover. It looks now like a private beach club in the middle of the city: swimming pool, blue Astroturf, lounge chairs. Perfect to chill, sunbathe or for a business meeting.
Two restaurants, one club, a bar:the Cactus Lounge and a couple shops.
The menu of the "Pool Deck" is pretty cheap. Perfect for a breakfast or a late lunch. Such as bowls: avocado, quinoa, grilled chicken, sweet potatoes or BLTs.
