The Standard, East Village

Reviewed April 16, 2013

We lived in NYC for 4 years, and were back for a weekend away visiting. After living in the east village, we had seen the standard and decided on it. We were thoroughly impressed and can see the Standard being our regular hotel when back. Great service, location, clean (and importantly quiet) rooms and well priced. Only reason for 4 stars is room could be bigger.

Service:
After booking we received an email asking our arrival time and preferences. I responded thinking it would be a waste (as so many emails are) but was pleasantly surprised that our room was ready (accommodating a higher floor) and keys awaiting for our arrival, technically ahead of formal check in time.

The seamless service continued our whole stay. Efficient, friendly and no hassle. Perfect.

Rooms:
We asked for a higher floor (for noise purposes) and recommend it. We stayed in the Village Queen. The room had minimal street noise and a great view looking north over cooper square. We also could not hear any neighbors which was a surprise given modern hotels and paper thin walls.

The rooms are small, but finished really well, clean and comfortable. I could see it getting a little cramped for an extended stay, but for a weekend away it was fine. For anyone not familiar with NYC living you may want to opt for a larger room.

Location:
This is primarily why we chose the Standard, If you are a first timer to NYC you may be better placed in the Times Square / Midtown area, but for us NYC is downtown. It's location is perfect as walking distance to EV, LES, SOHO etc and minutes walk from the 6, N and R.

Note about renovations: The restaurant is out of commission, but the breakfast in the Penthouse more than made up for it. Delicious bagels, muffins, fruit and cereal with 360 degree floor to ceiling views of Manhattan. While room service was also unavailable (as kitchen closed) I over heard the front desk say they would plate any delivery food. A nice touch (but really, you should be eating out).

There was no other inconvenience we encountered.

Room Tip: Higher floors minimize street noise.

We had a wonderful stay of 10 days at The Standard East Village. We are a demanding family of five with a baby and no tolerance for dust and dirt.. The room was always spotless, they accommodated all our needs and breakfast was a pleasure, delicious pastries, great bagels and good quality, fresh fruit juice. Starting the day with the view at the top,in any weather, is wonderful. They could improve on coffee, providing espresso and cappuccinos, at the moment it is only filter. For just about everything else The Standard was perfect for us, down to taking our bag to the airport in no time after they had mistakenly forgotten to put it in our taxi.
We will certainly be back! Great hotel, thank you.

Great location in the East Village. Great floor-to-ceiling windows in the bedrooms and an amazing view across the city. My room was small, but nice and light and had everything I could need. The penthouse (where they are serving breakfast while they renovate) has spectacular views and the second floor bar is also really lovely. Found the doormen friendly, but front desk were a bit brusque and not as welcoming as at the other Standard Hotel. Also, it's not clear if the rooms will be redone as part of the refurbishment, but it looks to me like they could do with a bit of attention. Mine had a wobbly chair, a fridge that I had to ask they to turn off because it buzzed so loudly, and the shower door made a horrible noise when it banged shut. None of which is a big deal, but it didn't feel 'luxury' the way the other Standard does. And when I tried to contact lost property after I had checked out, it was nearly impossible to get hold of them. Hopefully they will have polished off the rough edges when the hotel is fully renovated!

fairly priced for New York. Great location. 5 minutes from Soho shopping! Close to some new trendy restaurants (Circolo, Acme). Next door to the magnificent 41 Cooper Square. The staff is super nice and the free breakfast is a nice gesture.

stayed in this modern establishment for 1n, had a nice view, was upgraded to a king room. the front desk staff were not exactly friendly or welcoming and the guys at the door were more interested in chatting with the front desk staff than opening the doors. breakfast was served in a glasshouse on the roof, which was uncomfortably hot on a sunny morning, and lacked proper tables (there was maybe three tables altogether), so people had to make do with whatever level surfaces there were to place their plates on. alltogether the breakfast experience was quite uncomfortable, with too many people crammed into what felt like a rooftop greenhouse. the room was OK, wifi worked well, hot water was hot, and there was a steam-generating apparatus in the shower cubicle, which was a nice touch. location was very nice, in the middle of east village diversions. all in all, ok, but as it was not exactly inexpensive, i would've liked the staff to be at least normal-nice.
