“Stylish, Great Location, Miserable Wi-Fi”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2013

The Standard is party central for the upscale hipster crowd and the location is great for walking to TriBeCa, SoHo, the Village, Chelsea and midtown. Overall, it's a wonderful hotel but there a few downsides to being popular. It's often very hard to get down to the lobby or up to your hotel room because there are throngs of people crowding the elevator lobby waiting to get to the rooftop bar. Unfortunately, the hotel doesn't manage this situation well. At other hotels with a trendy rooftop scene, such as Ink48, there is a separate elevator - staffed with bouncers - for those wishing to visit the rooftop. The other problem we experienced is that the free Wi-Fi offered by the hotel simply does not work. You can connect, but data transfer is so slow as to be useless. We stayed at The Standard for three nights and the Wi-Fi was hopelessly slow the entire time.

I just returned from a long weekend in NYC, where I stayed three nights as a guest at the Standard Highline. My girlfriend and I eagerly anticipated our stay at this property, and in the popular Meatpacking District on a long summer weekend. We were not disappointed by the energy of the neighborhood. The Standard seemed like the epicenter of the action, and the property was absolutely teeming with people all day long. We had no problem with this activity. In fact, it was exciting to be part of the buzz, as we enjoyed The Standard Grill and rooftop clubs. And, The Standard’s location above the Highline is unmatched. Our room was comfortable, if somewhat small. The bed was wonderfully comfortable. We had some disappointments, though. First, the health club was absolutely untended. The exercise room itself was boiling, and amenities like ice water would have been welcomed, and frankly, expected. Second, in our room’s bathroom, there were shampoo and body wash products bolted to the wall by the shower. I understand the economizing nature taken, however, it was very difficult to extract this product when pumping, due to the way the products were bolted to the way. Frankly, when you are spending more than $500/night for a room, you don’t expect this kind of penny pinching. Disappointing.

I stay at the Standard Hotel every time I visit NYC, mainly because of it's central location in the midst of the meatpacking district. I stayed in room 1506 during my most recent visit and enjoyed the great views of the city. Whilst it's a very good hotel, I think the staff on the front desk can be a little too aloof at times (as I would be tempted to be if I was a great looking 26 year old). By the way, the fitness centre on level 17 has an amazing view of the Hudson River. Be advised, that on most nights the night club pumps out really loud, thumping music until about 1am and the rooms above level 14 tend to pick up a lot of the noise (the hotel provides ear plugs in the room !!)

Room Tip: Whilst the rooms above level 14 have great views, they also pick up the noise from the bar/night clu...

I chose this hotel because of its price and it far exceeded my expectations. I've stayed in NYC hotels for $1,500 per night and the service here was no different. Everyone from the doorman when I stepped out of the car, to the front desk check-in, to the hotel & restaurant staff were so friendly and went out of their way to make my stay enjoyable. I thought it might be loud with all the bars, being on the Hudson and in the meatpacking district, but I never heard one thing in my room. The room was lovely - bright or dark when I wanted it to be. If you're going with someone you don't know you may want to re-think as the shower is basically in your living room & you're on display. I didn't order room service so I can't speak on that, but I did eat in the restaurant downstairs and the food was good. Cocktails were excellent! I plan to return to NYC in the next couple of months and will stay here again.

The Standard offers rooms with a brilliant view over the Hudson towards the Statue of Liberty (the rooms with the odd room numbers), New Jersey and the Financial District. Very nicely done rooms, clean and stylish, though not exactly big in size. Very busy bar at the top floor, though expensive.
Especially during busy times (i.e. during check-out) waiting times at the reception can be ridiculously long and need patience. One day there were at least five parties standing in line and only one receptionist was taking care - although there would be at least five counters. Another time three receptionists were waiting for guests - but none was to be helped. Bad management.
Nice restaurant, though.

Room Tip: Rooms with odd room numbers face towards the South and have river view.

Even though The Standard Highline (TSH) considers itself a hip and current hot spot, you would not know it from the way the staff treats you. They are as warm and friendly as a roadside motel in the midwest (in a good way!). From the check-in to the restaurant, the customer service was over the top. Even though I only stayed here for one night the rooms (typically small like the rest of Manhattan) were spectacular. with most rooms having two outside walls of glass, you cannot get enough of the spectacular views and it doesn't matter which way you face! Had a great stay!
