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.
