Hotel Tour: The Standard DTLA

No summer is complete without a proper pool party, so in typical Live FAST fashion, we made sure we threw one that was hot enough to keep you flushed well into autumn. Teaming up with WeTransfer and the dFm, we took to The Standard hotel in downtown Los Angeles to get the mood right. Photographed and filmed by our friend Lewis Tan, the modern aesthetics of DTLA’s first boutique hotel paired with an abundance of babes sent the summer out with a bang.

The raddest part about this installment of the Hotel Tour series is the powerfully creative ladies we had dominating the party. Ms. Jessie Andrews spun tunes to keep the crowd moving as the sun set while Sahara Ray donned her swimwear line with her fellow partners in crime.

The Standard has become a Los Angeles icon over the past few years. The company is known for their innovative architecture, youthful culture, and sexy atmosphere (never hesitate to stop by the front desk if you need to pick up some condoms). Suites nestled within the mid-century building are quirky and minimalistic – pops of color plus their signature huge foot lend the rooms plenty of character.

Luxury is never sacrificed at The Standard. Egyptian cotton sheets plus a huge 14 foot working desk ensure plenty of business and pleasure will be taking place during your stay. Multiple eateries and shopping boutiques allow you to get your fair share of indulgence in as well. The Restaurant is a 24/7 diner that holds a classic diner nostalgia while The Standard Biergarten offers delectable German classics to be enjoyed while overlooking the city in a makeshift garden.

As previously mentioned, stunner Sahara Ray recently launched her own self-titled swimwear line. Designed by the multitasking beauty who currently resides in Long Beach, her debut collection is absolutely delicious. Cheeky, simple, and incredibly sexy, her pieces make sure to accentuate all of the right assets. Our favorite? The Nikki top paired with the Cindy bottom.


We’re pretty big fans of D’Blanc glasses and couldn’t take ’em off our faces all summer. Citing their “focus to be creating Italian-made eyewear that defines a feeling,” we’re in love with the clean lines and classic shapes this company consistently produces. Pick up a pair of the pictured “Minor Panic” shades here.


As part of our partnership with WeTransfer – the inventive minds behind the file-sharing site – we gave away Plus accounts to creatives. A pretty incredible tool to have, a Plus account allows you to have up to 10GB of storage, transfer storage, social sharing, increased password protection and customized backgrounds. If you missed out on your giveaway, head over to the WeTransfer site to upgrade yourself here.

Don’t you dare think for a second we were going to have a Hotel Tour sans lingerie. Our lovelies are wearing some designs from ClareBare lingerie – the comfiest eco-friendly lingerie that maintains an air of sex appeal. Every set is made-to-order in downtown Los Angeles without hardware to ensure each piece naturally hugs the curves of your body.

You’ve officially been given the ins and outs of The Standard hotel, ensuring your stay is just as incredible as ours was. We can’t guarantee the lingerie-clad honeys nor could we ever recreate that pool party, but we certainly can promise you’ll have an unforgettable experience here. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled for our next Hotel Tour, you never know where we will turn up. Until next time…
