Write LA Partners with the Coolest Hotel in Hollywood: The Standard!
The Standard does things their own way, literally – their logo is upside down! We’re big fans of their eclectic, vibrant, thoroughly LA tastes, and we are ecstatic that our 2020 winner will get to spend two complimentary nights at this fabulous hotel in November.
(Of course, this will depend on the will of The Virus, but we are hopeful that the world will have achieved a new normal by November. If it hasn’t, we’ll work out an alternate prize package of equivalent awesomeness with the winner.)
As the website proclaims, “A true original, The Standard, Hollywood is a retro classic located in the heart of West Hollywood on the legendary Sunset Strip. A quintessential neighborhood destination, the hotel embraces its original vintage design and offbeat sensibility, a lively experience, the hotel abounds with creativity and spirited clientele. From the wavy mid-century modern façade to the blue AstroTurf pool deck to the floor-to-ceiling shagged lobby, expect unexpected touches at every turn.”
