“Always be there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2012 via mobile

We tried different hotels but this is by far the best for couples who want to have fun. Not really suitable for families specially with kids, bathrooms are usually open and there is not much intimacy. Suits are amazingly spacious, the 70s style is super cool, the view is amazing: full windows allow the best view of the City. Location is perfect on the most vibrant part of the city, great boutiques and street life. Top restaurants in the neighborhood and the hotel restaurant itself "The Grill" food is fresh service is impeccable and personal good looking and fashionable and very kind and helfpful. We made this place our second home!! Standard people we love you except the nasty French guy at La Bain (one of the clubs).

Read about this hotel in an architectural magazine and decided I would definitely have to visit. Booked myself a 3 nights’ stay. The check in went smoothly and I got upgraded to a king deluxe because I booked through the visa luxury website.

Good points about the hotel:-
• Its hip, its happening. Heaps of party and beautiful people hanging around at all times of the day
• The food at the standard grill is great, the service not so great
• The location is good, if you want to be out of midtown and in the meatpacking district
• The view of the high line from the full glass windows of the room is amazing. I could even catch a glimpse of the statue liberty

Not so Good points about the hotel:-
• Hotel staff service was somewhat lacking. From the housekeeping to the front desk. They weren’t rude, just rushed and uninterested. E.g asking for a showercap that took more than an hour to arrive. Like questioning that they missed out an item from my check out bill and got irritated glances instead. (and I thought honesty was a good trait) Was told they would email my final bill to me but I never received it.
• The rooms were tiny and claustrophobic.
• The rooms are not well maintained.
• The interior décor (from the corridors to the hotel rooms and the toilets) made me think I was in a hospital. I am a huge fan of modern hotel rooms but this was just a bit too trendy and weird for my taste.
• The mattress was really soft, bad back support
• shower area had no door, so if you are here w friends, plan how you would have to leave the room whilst the other is showering


Summary : it was ok for an experience. But I am pretty sure I won’t return again.
Tips : get a suite. The standard and deluxe rooms are really really tiny. And the wc feels like someone’s broom closet.

Yes the Standard hotel is on the fabulous High line, yes it has a really cool bar and it's restaurants are always full of cool people or wannabe cool people. But try being a hotel guest and you have little chance of service. Not strangers to luxury hotels around the world, we were flabbergasted at how badly we were treated by staff who seem to be caught up in the be- cool thing. I must say the young guys helping with taxis and luggage were polite and helpful, check in staff too were polite, but after that it was downhill. I managed to be well ignored as I waited to get breakfast, there was always confusion, and not much attention. I ate there only twice out of seven days. Try getting into the upstairs bars, and there is little hope. Guest? Are you on a list? No effort to provide service . In fact we tried twice and were virtually abused by the caricatures guarding the doors. Clearly wrong age demographic, over fifty, and not cool enough.
The hotel rooms have amazing views but you don't find anywhere to hang your bath towel and the shower sprays onto the carpet in the corridor. Enjoy the highline but if you want to feel like a guest in a real hotel and to find some decent service, avoid this one.

Stayed in this hotel for 2 nights and loved it. The rooms are quite small but most are in NYC. Small but well designed, amazing views over the Hudson and a brilliant location. The Standard Grill was great - delicious menu. The hotel were very friendly and helpful - something you don't always find in NYC's trendier hotels.

The outside bar area in front of Standard hotel is great. They have really great pitchers of cocktails at reasonable prices. Great view of people watching and nice little appetizers. Had a great time and drank a lot.
