If this location suits your travel needs, the Standard is a great place to experience NYC. The place exudes the edginess of the Village, yet the staff is friendly and accommodating. We had a king room which had a fabulous view of the Brooklyn Bridge and the new trade center tower. The bed was very comfortable. Of course the rooms are small, it is Manhattan after all, but they did a lot to make the space appealing.
Our bathroom had a strange deep tub with a curtain to use for the shower, but I found it hard to get in and out and I made a huge watery mess all over the bathroom. The other room we had contained a more normal stall shower, which was much more practical.
During our stay the lobby was under construction, so they provided us access to the penthouse event space for complimentary continental breakfast. There was a spectacular 360 view and the food was great. I would love it if they would continue to provide that benefit when the construction is completed, but I understand there will be a full service restaurant on the ground floor instead.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Located off Cooper Square in one of New York's most vibrant, artistic neighborhoods, The Standard, East Village is cozy, charming, and eccentric in equal measure-very much in the spirit of its surroundings. You enter the 21-story tower through an original tenement-style building before ascending to unparalleled views of Manhattan. There's a quiet, calm garden tucked away at street level, Michelin-starred chef John Fraser's widely acclaimed Narcissa, and the bustling, street-side Café Standard, which hums from morning until late night. ... more less
