The Standard High Line of course.

The hotel's resident "guest," Stan D'Arde, blogged about meeting Queen B in the hallway (or so he says) while she was shooting the music video. Here's how the imaginary meet-up went down:

A few weeks back after a long night at The Top of The Standard, I was heading down to my room to see what was left in my mini-bar and maybe try to get some sleep. When I turned the corner from the elevator bank, I came face to face with Beyoncé and a camera crew…

ME: “Hey, B!”
B: “Hey, Boo!”
ME: “What are you doing?”
B: “Shooting a music video.”
ME: “You never told me.”
B: “I know!”
ME: “Carry on, B. Carry on.”

The whole thing seemed very mysterious, but I trusted her.

That music video turned out to be "Rocket" one of 17 videos she dropped suddenly last night along with her new album, titled, "Beyoncé." Of course. Now, if only we could get other Standard guests to replicate the Beyoncé pose during their stay….cue viral internet meme sensation in 5, 4, 3, 2….

The Redbury Looks Straight Out of a Music Video (Because It Is)

September 10, 2013 at 6:50 PM | by | Comments (0)

We fell in lurve with The Redbury's rock glam interiors from the moment we stepped inside the hotel back in 2010. And now the hotel has some real rock credibility to tout.

The new music video for the popular Australian band, The Rubens, was recently filmed at The Redbury. The concept for the video was actually conceived by the hotel's designer himself, Matthew Rolston, who has an impressive list of music videos on his filmography resume.

The song, "The Best We Got", is a little too emo for our tastes but the video is super sexy and it was shot entirely at The Redbury--in the lobby, on the rooftop, and of course, in the guestrooms. They even have the band dining with some hot girls at the hotel's restaurant, Cleo (girls who later get nearly naked on the beds.)

No doubt, this video will fuel the rock star dreams of adolescent boys everywhere. Not to mention, it's a clever way of enticing Australians--the #1 international feeder market for LA--to come stay at The Redbury.
