After proposing to my girlfriend in New York, we spent the night at The Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking district. The reputation of The Standard is that it's New York hot spot. Checking in at 10:30 p.m. the hotel and the surrounding area was hopping with party goers. The atmosphere was electric. I booked The Standard hotel the day of, through the iPhone app - "Hotel Tonight". I saved around $200 from their original asking price. The Hotel Tonight app doesn't carry the same hotels, and doesn't offer the same discounts, so don't bank on getting the same rate, or even an offer for a discount for The Standard each day - it's probably not going to happen. The hotel room was clean and the view of the Empire State building was amazing. There are huge windows in the room.
Speaking of windows...if you're booking this hotel with someone not your significant other -beware - the shower is in the middle of the room and has glass walls, so you can see out into the city. There's no privacy there, but that's by design. Early morning breakfast spots are hard to come by directly surrounding the hotel, as the Meatpacking neighborhood as a whole is a late riser. I'd recommend this place to others, and would come back again.
