Overview

The Look

See and be seen. Straddling New York’s elevated High Line park, the all-glass modernist facade puts the pretty people both inside and out on display. The loungey lobby has a runway-like entrance between peep-hole screens to a gleaming marble check-in desk. Then you’re whisked up to your room in a club-like elevator with trippy video art installations by Marco Brambilla. The hotel’s Biergarten and the Standard Grill provide a warm contrast with a clubby Old World vibe via penny-tiled floors, tufted merlot banquettes and burnished hardwoods.

Bed & Bath

Continuing the let-it-all-hang-out theme, the 338 rooms leave nowhere to hide with glass-walled bathrooms and floor-to-ceiling windows inviting the outside to get a peek in. But those windows also frame postcard perfect views of the Hudson, uptown and downtown Manhattan. The feel here is urban crash pad with a white-on-white, clean-lined look softened by honey wood paneling. Reasonable room prices mean there aren’t a ton of bells and whistles. But queen beds topped in fluffy down pillows, rainshowers and large plasma TVs provide all the comforts you need.

Beyond

The Standard is as much a playground for locals as it is for out-of-towners, from the haute biergarten’s always-packed ping pong tables and wintertime skating rink all the way up to penthouse party spot Le Bain (plunge pool on the dancefloor anyone?). The Top of the Standard is also one of the swankiest rooftops around — cocktail attire is required. You’ll see everyone from Martha Stewart to Madonna in The Standard Grill slurping oysters, sipping big bold reds and tucking into juicy porterhouses (and other more figure-friendly farm-fresh fare).

In the Area

You can feel like you’re in the pulsing heart of Manhattan without even needing to leave the hotel. But you’re also smack-dab in the middle of some of the city’s best shopping and art. So take your plastic for a walk down Washington Street to Diane von Furstenberg’s flagship and along 14th Street to of-the-moment designer stores like cult boutique Jeffrey. If you’d prefer more culinary indulgences, walk up to Chelsea Market and gather picnic essentials among the cheesemongers, lobster purveyors, bakers and gelato makers before checking out the sunset views of the Hudson from your perch above the city on the High Line, a park built on elevated railway lines. Daredevils can learn to fly through the air with the greatest of ease at Trapeze School New York, which sits on a pier on the Hudson during the warmer months.

Birthday Fun
Reviewed 2 days ago

I wanted to celebrate my 35th Birthday with a bang so my boyfriend booked a room at The Standard hotel. The room was nice but I needed some Birthday cheer. I spoke with Brandon Thompson and he assisted us with an upgrade. He was very professional, he understood the importance of a celebration. Lucky for me I met him and he gave me some upgrade options. Thank you Brandon Thompson for giving me a memorable birthday evening!!!!

Value for money in a slightly dated hotel

The hotel offers a great personal service is located on a great spot in meatpacking however rooms do look tired.
Gym on the topfloor is well equiped and breakfast served at Standard grill is absolutely worth it.

Excellent concierge service

Very pleasant stay in this hotel especially thanks to Eszter Toth with whom I came in contact before my arrival in NY, she was very reactive and was able to honor all my requests with the greatest sympathy.

Hip hotel but TERRIBLE overall. Customer service was bad, rooms are small, euro toilets didn’t work, glass shower with no curtain, rude employees, no access to Rooftop bars as a guest and overall mediocre experience. If you’re looking for an exceptional experience in NYC, this is not your place. Basic at best.
