A real surprise. Normally we stay in SoHo but we stayed here as part of a wedding party. From the first moment this was a first class experience. The entire staff was personable and friendly and executed their jobs flawlessly. And there was someone everywhere you turned. The room was great, larger than expected and a great price. Very cool amenities, they did The Standard better then The Standard. We really enjoyed our stay and exploring that part of the city, especially Ground Zero.
