“Good spot”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

Just got back from NYC and stayed in this location for the first time. I really liked it and didn't have high expectations since I have had hits and misses with The Standard hotels. (They've always felt a little 'vegas' to me.) Anyways, I found that everyone who works here is super friendly, the room service food is some of the best I've had, and the views are amazing no matter which room you are in.
It wasn't perfect though. The rooms are TINY and the some of the furnishings looks a little worn and cheap looking, so you don't feel you are in a great hotel when you are in room. Though the rest of the place is nice and I would still come back. Hopefully when its warmer as the High Line would be amazing on a warm day...
I also liked that it was a quick walk to Pastis (the restaurant) and some nice bars.

I stayed at the Standard, Hi-Line for the first time last week and have to say I was amazed. I travel a lot for work and pleasure (almost weekly) and have yet to experience the quality of service and relaxed luxury of The Standard. The location was excellent with amazing clubs, bars, restaurants, and shops within easy walking distance and the rooftop bar and restaurant was insanely beautiful. I highly recommend that anyone who is looking to be treated like a King and enjoy their time in NYC stay here! I will now, never stay at another hotel in NYC...

This is a great place to stay in the Meatpacking District, a million miles from the traditional tourist areas of Manhattan. The rooms, although compact, are well equipped and have great views over NYC or the Hudson River. However, the walls are rather thin and you can hear any partying in the next room. The hotel straddles The High Line, a beautiful high level walkway and garden formed from a disused railway line. The service was good and there's a cool bar on the 18th floor with amazing views. The Standard Grill is good for breakfast and in the area there are some great bars and restaurants and high end shopping.

Another fantastic trip to NYC with our friends @ The Standard. Paul Kashman and crew, Amal, Michael, and others with the front desk and bell team are great. Stay here with your family. Stay here by yourself. Just stay here. It's a really great scene in a fantastic neighborhood. You will enjoy yourself.

We've stayed in the Standard High Line several times over the past years, the staff never disappointed me with their level of service and I thoroughly enjoyed each of my stays. I love the atmosphere and location of the hotel, the views are second to none, the huge bath is great for relaxing after a long day strolling along Greenwich shops/bars and the restaurant/beergarden downstairs serve decent food and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere. Rooms are convenient and the beds are comfortable but if you value sleep, make sure you either come home late and intoxicated, or make sure to get a room below the 14th floor as even at 4am, you'll hear the thumping bass of the boom boom room on the 18th floor. That's actually a great reason to join the party upstairs as the party and views are incredible.

Room Tip: Don't stay at the 14th floor or up if you are a light sleeper

I stayed for 4 nights at this hotel. One would think that for $500+/night fair and a promisse of free wifi you would get at least good internet access, well its AWFUL! Unusable actually, If your travelling on business or you're an internet junky avoid at all cost you'll not get access in this hotel. Hotel has a nice design, however rooms are poorly thought, font expect drawers to place your unddies, don't expect the usual thing in hotels where you put your luggage on... Bar on the 18th floor has odd hours and is not always available for gests... I'll never return to this hotel. My recommendation: stay away for this price you can get a really nice room other place

Dear calvarius -

So sorry your experience did not live up to expectations! Just to clarify, our WiFi at the property is complimentary at a reasonable speed, and enhanced speeds at an additional cost. Some internet functions requiring large bandwidths don't function perfectly due to the nature of the shared system. Sorry it was a let down during your visit. Thanks for the kind compliment on the design of the Hotel, our rooms are consistent with the overall design, and a few of the more traditional elements of a Hotel guest room (like a chest of drawers) were left out. The bar on the 18th Floor is available to our guests consistently during Sunset Service and our Concierge can assist in making reservations at any time.

We know our guests have many choices in New York for places to stay. Our Hotel is unique in offering a wide range of options for our guests from rooms, to restaurants and bars as well as cultural installations and events. We hope you will return!

All best,

David Lemmond

Yes it is busy as ever before. And the high-line / meatpacking-district still a hot-spot. Sort of. The Grill is great and Boom Boom-room/Le Bain continues to draw crowds. You will feel a slight rush when joining the party crowd - of tourists, alas. Because The Standard is now more famous than exciting. O.K with that and you will have a good time partying your socks off.

The room ( I lived in a Deluxe Queen ) had seen better days. The devil lies in details... like the the loose shower handle and the shabby wall-to-wall carpet. On a good day the minor errors are shadowed by the great view that most rooms come with. My general feeling is that everything that is really good about the Standard, has to do with non-hotel-realated stuff: the bars, the restaurant, the high-line access and skating track (winter time obviously). It is certainly not good for working purposes, but hey, that's my mistake. The Standard is mostly about party, with that unmistakable feeling that the V.I.P guests left a long time ago. Ending this on a positive note though, I have to salute the elevator entertainment - worth the distraction! And of course the great band that entertained at Top of the Standard - a superb warm up for a particularly wet night out. Phew.

Dear CCallert -

Thanks for staying with us at The Standard! I hope you don't count us totally as down and out. I think we have more to offer from a Hotel guest perspective. As with any location there are changes to the crowd over time, the longer you are around, the more people know you are here... I don't blame any of them for wanting to be a part of the fun.

The guest rooms are always being worked on to ensure they are in the best condition possible. I'm sorry you found your room not up to par. We hope you will come back and spend some more time in both the Hotel and our Bars and Restaurants.

All best,
