Definitely Not The Standard

Okay, so y’all know that I went to Los Angeles this weekend and went to The March of Dimes walk and The Grilled Cheese Invitational.
The fabulous people at Kraft Singles put me up at The Standard Hotel in Downtown LA. This is definitely above ‘The Standard’ and way different from anywhere I have stayed before.
The hotel is phenomenally fun, cool rooms, amazing rooftop bar/deck/pool and the staff is super courteous. From the darling guy who helped me at the front desk (Holla! Justin!!) to the room service, maid service, bartenders, everyone… I was beyond impressed.

The room itself, well…. very different, yet fun. I loved it and would loove to stay again.
I have tons of pics and stories to tell but for now, I’ll let this video tell it all.

ps. i want to make a slideshow with both still images and flip footage and music.. anyone? what should I use?

  1. I’ll have to come back and watch your video.

    But, I’m pretty sure you can use microsoft movie editor. That’s what I’ve used. You can import your flip video…and I think you can import pictures. Let me know if it works for you:)

  2. One of the best thing about blogger videos is hearing their voices!

    (And yea, that window into the bathroom? No thank you. I don’t love anyone that much! snirk.)

  3. Uh huh. Tell me this – who in the HELL thought it was a good idea to be able to watch another person take a CRAP – and while you’re most likely on VACATION?!?


    Hope you had a good trip!

  4. ummmmmmmmm…. (I think I’m rendered a bit speechless here for a moment!!) okay, I imagine it cost more money to have the window in there like that, than it would have to just have a WALL! Who wants to see into the bathroom like that? And the shower not having any walls? That seems like it would leave the bathroom a bit of a safety hazard with the floors all wet… I guess it was an interesting experience, and DEFINATELY blog-worthy, but I think I’ll pass!

  5. We Walked for Maddie this weekend in Cincinnati. It was such an amazing experience. Glad you were able to both the trip, and the Walk.

  6. Okay, so I could KINDA SORTA get the whole get your sexy on” bit of the room with the peek a boo shower until I saw that you could see the TOILET from that bed, too. Come ON! There is no “get your sexy on” about watching someone take care of THAT business. “Here honey, watch me shower all sexy for you. Oh wait, let me take a crap first.”

  7. I’m guessing that the nearest dollar store to that hotel gets a lot of business – travellers must buy tons of shower curtains.
