We requested (and got) a ground floor standard view in December, our room overlooked the courtyard (exiting lobby toward SAB). It was a lovely view (lots of poinsettias at that time of year) close to the lobby, too. There are at least 8 or so rooms on the first floor in that hallway that would all be SV.
I believe you were upgraded to a Garden View room. Standard views all overlook roofs or parking lots. Other folks who have booked Standard View should expect neither 1st floor nor a view of the courtyard.
