“Trendy Modern Hotel in the heart of the West Village”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

No matter what LA folks tell you, this location is the true "standard" for The Standard hotels. It's location in the heart of the Meatpacking District / West Village area along with its classy grill and beer garden make this the top choice for out-of-towners looking to have a few nights out in the city. The hotel clientele is young and international, much the same as the James Hotel. The two clubs at the roof level are both excellent, but for different reasons: The "Boom Boom Room" is great for casual cocktails as the sun sets on the city, and "Le Bain" is fun if you're looking for a late night spot to drink and dance until sunrise. This will always be on the short list of city destinations for a night out or a weekend stay.

+ Location, easy to dodge the worst trafic and walk to the best areas of NYC
+ Stylish and modern
+ Biergarten, Standard Grill and the *Living Room*, good food overall.
+ Coctail bar on the roof top
+ Very clean rooms.

- Bad service
- Snotty Employees (Except the waiter Creighton at the Standard Grill who was awsome)
- Bad value for the money compared to other hotels in the area.
- Be sure to pay extra to get a room with a view over the Hudson, cause the noise on the other side of the hotel will keep you up all night.
- The harley bar next to the standard makes A LOT of noise during night time.
- Amenities in the room did not work at all or worked sometimes.
- Very poor wifi internet connection. A skype call is almost impossible to do.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the hudson.

Check in was smooth, although my wife felt all the receptionists showed too much cleavage with ill fitting bras. Once in the room the floor to ceiling window provides an undeniably amazing view. We had an Empire State facing window and slept with the curtains open both nights - falling asleep and waking up looking at the skyline was unbelievable.
The concept of the shower having only a clear glass screen into the room was excellent.

We were very disappointed not to be able to experience the bars. Largely due to having other commitments in the evening. But there was no possibility to add on to a late night guest list. My wife works in this industry in the UK and felt it was entirely due to leaving the decision of who enters to the bouncer (one receptionist did admit, the door staff make final decision) We were very embarrassed for some of our friends (also staying at the hotel) as we feel they were discriminated against.

You are definitely paying for the view and the opportunity to make the most of the floor to ceiling windows!

I booked my short stay (of one night), for my girlfriends birthday. I knew little about the hotel other then it apparently had amazing views!

Day of checking in: The lobby is tight and during checkin on the weekend it becomes FULL of people trying to get to their rooms or just people trying to get to the club upstairs or use the restrooms (because of the restaurant on the first floor). The woman who checked me in was very nice but must have forgotten to pull her shirt up because her cleavage was spewing out of her bra and shirt. Maybe its a New York thing?... Anyway, after waiting for an elevator to be open, I finally made it to my room. But, not so fast now..... my key didn't work. So I had to go all the way down to the front desk to ask for another. NOT so easy, it took me 20-25 minutes. They only had one set of elevators for drunk party goers and guests!!!!

Room at first glance: OMG the shower is in see through. Maybe it was a little bit of my own fault but I didn't know all the showers where totally exposed. I am a semi private conservative normal person, and i don't want anyone who is staying with me being able to watch me shower... kinda awkward. THANKFULLY i was not traveling with anyone! The room did have a beautiful floor to ceiling window that was probably the length of my arms time two. It was neat and tidy. The bathroom shower had beautiful tiles. Hopefully if I was staying with someone they would be so memorized by it they wouldn't be looking at me trying to shower.

Checking out:
This was a nightmare in a half. I had them valet my car but no one told me they were closing the street down for a parade. So I had to wait hours to get my car, along with a slew of angry travelers. Rightfully so because some were missing flights and what not.

Please if management is reading this, please do not contact me again about my review. Thank you!

The truth is that the target market The Standard High Line is aimed at (style-conscious, pre-family, free-spenders) can't really afford its punchy prices, unless they're on expense accounts with the nearby fashion stores. So there's plenty of scope for the meeter/greeters to not-quite-engage with those wheeling cases through the yellow revolving doors, but . . . none of this can take away from The Standard being a fantastic hotel experience. Amazing rooms (admittedly compact), with amazing views (east across the city and west across the Hudson), a great location in the Meatpacking District, and fantastic eating/drinking options (The Standard Grill, Biergarten, The Room, 18th floor cocktail bar, and some mythical 19th floor thing that we couldn't get access to) without having to go onto the street. Highly recommended despite the difficulties of top-floor access. Why would you want to stay anywhere else in New York?

A great visit in a busy night in the city.
The staff was terrific and fast, and checking was smooth. Good time to stay as the hotel was partially full but the roof bar was closed due to a private party.
Will definitely come back!

Check out the beer garden next door!!

Arrived early and were able to check in at noon. This almost never happens in NYC.
Had brunch on the terrace. Food and service was very good.
Room was small but we knew that. Floor to ceiling windows with a fantastic view of the Manhattan skyline! Our room had a direct view of the Empire State Building.
The meat packing district is a very cool section of the city right next to the village.
Shopping was awesome with outstanding resturants within walking distance.
The roof top night club is hot! Dress accordingly.
During the day the roof top is a very cool place to hand out for a drink and small bits.
Sunset Views are as good as any in the city!
Had lunch outside. this was a different menu than the terrace dining.
Food and service was excellent!

Room Tip: Empire Room has awesome views
