First of all, you must understand that there are TWO Standard Hotels in lower Manhattan. If you tell a cab drive, ANY cab drive that you want to go to the Standard hotel, they will take you to the one over near the High Line, near the Hudson river in the meat packing district. You will notice that the building here does not look like the building you saw when you went searching for hotels and found the Standard Hotel at COOPER SQUARE!!!! Or, tell them it's the old Cooper Square Hotel.
We got dropped off, and ended up taking another $15 over the east in Cooper Square!
The lobby is under construction, but this is no problem in any way.
The rooms were a comfortable size compared to many other boutique hotels in New York which go for much higher prices. The bar on the second floor was very nice and you could sit inside our out. There is also a small lounge outside in the garden near the front desk.
One of the most outstanding features of this hotel is the free breakfast in the "penthouse." You can eat outside on the deck or inside if it is cold, rainy, or foggy as it was our first morning. The view of the city east, south and west is outstanding. Don't miss this!
I was there with my daughter visiting some colleges in NYC. If you have a child attending NYU, I can't think of a better place to say. It is a 10-minute walk over to Washington Square the center of NYU's campus.
I've stayed at far-nicer hotels for twice the price. I liked this place and would return again. The staff was great. It must be nice as for the money, there were many Europeans there buying with cheap US dollars.
- 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
