I had a great time at this hotel. The location is perfect right on top of the Highline and next to the whitney adjacent to Chelsea market and a short walk to Greenwich Village. They have bikes there that are free to guests and we...use those to roam the area. The staff was friendly and helpful. Hotel definitely has a trendy and useful vibe and noise was not a problem on my 10th floor room. There is a little lack of privacy if you are staying with teens because the shower has a complete see-through wall Great visit and would certainly stay againMore

Basically, that’s New York. Service: 10/10. Had a dirty martini with a terrific view. Everything was perfectly handled. I had such a New Yorker vibes. Thank you. The experience is a lifetime worthy.

There are no words to describe this experience! Probably, one of the greatest rooftop of New York. Tasted an extra dry Martini with a view. That’s New York.

My husband and I went here for our 3rd wedding anniversary, and we could not have had a more outstanding evening. Everyone is very nice and accommodating, and this started from the moment I made our reservation two weeks in advance. When asked if there...was an occasion and I mentioned it was our anniversary, I was asked where we would like to sit. I said we had not been there before, and the man on the phone said he had the perfect spot for us. When we arrived we were led to a cozy spot by a fireplace, with amazing views of the river and the city. Our server greeted us with two complimentary glasses of bubbles--such a thoughtful touch! The food and cocktails are top notch--the sliders so amazing that we went for a second order. The ambience is cozy and romantic, and on top of that, live jazz! My husband was worried that it would be a tourist trap, but he could not stop raving about the high class experience. We can't wait to come back in November!More

I wrapped up dinner and was about to head home early when Jade, a manager, suggested The Top of The Standard. I had no idea there was a club upstairs! Good music, good vibe and I even burned off some calories dancing! :D

My friends and I had the best time at Top of the standard. The manager Mark set us up with a beautiful table with one of the best views of the city. Our servers Maya and Meghan were lovely and very attentive with our drinks....They chose most opulent gold bar birthday dessert, definitely ‘gram worthy. A great place to meet friends but I definitely want to bring a date next time, it has a very sexy vibe. Also definitely don’t miss the bathrooms! They’re one of a kind.More

We went here for some drinks as the sun was setting. It was a beautiful bar and the all round spectacular views. The bar staff were very friendly and good backing music. They did have live entertainment starting later on but we missed it unfortunately....They also have a club across the corridor called le Bain which is meant to be great fun.More

My son and I had a reservation at the Top of the Standard on Christmas evening, the service and atmosphere the moment we arrived... wow! After being seated at a west side table with an 18th story view of downtown Manhattan and the New Jersey...skyline across the Hudson River, the manager greeted us, ensuring our comfort. Mike also stopped by our table and recommended several cocktails and tapas-style dishes. My sons favorites were the tuna tartare and foie gras sliders, which I also found amazing, but I was specifically impressed with the flavor combinations in every plate and cocktail, beautifully blended, not over or under done. Everything was subtle and exquisite! Aaron crafted us cocktails that were out of this world! His presence behind the bar was professional, knowledgeable, and impressive to watch. My favorite cocktail of the evening was the Hudson Duster! The architecture, views, interior design, staff, art, comfort and lighting culminate in an atmosphere and experience you won’t soon... if ever, forget! If I make it back to The Top of the Standard I will consider myself twice blessed! Oh yeah, and make sure you go to the bathroom... even if you don’t have to.More

Even though we loved the atmosphere, cocktails and the food (fries were amazing), our evening was ruined by the attitude of the hostesses. It was a quite evening most tables were empty and we asked our waitress before our drinks arrived if we could move...to front row that had better view and she asked us to go ask the hostess outside the door ourselves. I went up and asked for permission and the hostess said no problem. While we were moving, I thought it would be a good idea to let the waiter by the new table know that we have already asked hostess and that we're moving. However to our surprise, the waiter asked us to go ask hostess again. When I asked the reason why I got yelled at and been told that this is how their operations work and I have to get up and ask for the second time. When I refused to go ask for the second time waiter threatened me to call the security. Then he left and we sat down to the new table. The waitress who was previously taking care of us came over and told us that our drinks are at our old table. When we asked if we could have them at the new table she asked if we could help her move our drinks. At that point we were very very frustrated. Then the hostess came and apologized saying she was confused when she gave us consent. To sum, it was the worst experience I have ever had at a bar in my life and it is very unfortunate that an establishment with such potential is being run by this poor management. After that experience, I would never consider going back or recommending this place to my friends.More

Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was
here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter
culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for
its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to
get a feel for this diverse and energetic
neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street
performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the
fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess.
