“Fun, Great Views, Great Location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 18, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights Sat- Wed. I requested a "quiet room" after reading the reviews here about the nightclub. The room was indeed quiet and we had no problem sleeping at night. I loved this area of the city as there were many excellent restaurants, bars and shops. The High Line and Chelsear market are also very interesting. The staff treated us very well. The only shortcomings are space issues in the room- there is hardly any closet space and not enough shelving in bathroom for cosmetics and toiletries. Shower was extremely dark. Bedding is begining to look worn.
But overall would stay here again. We enjoyed the bar on the 18th floor, the Standard Plaza for drinks and the Standard Grill for breakfast.

Arriving late at night and tired with a colleague who had never visited New York before, the room upgrade ensured that her brief stay was the best hotel experience ever.
Fantastic, attentive staff who are clearly enjoying working for the hotel and one of the coolest atmosphere's at any hotel I've stayed at recently.
I travel a fair bit and the extra effort goes a long way and was much appreciated.
Looking forward to the return...

We attended a wedding at The Standard, so we decided to stay there as well. Overall, the hotel was good - incredible views, and a fun, trendy vibe. We had a corner room, which had views of both the Manhattan skyline and the Hudson River. The hotel's decor is hip and fun. However, the room didn't quite live up to the rest of the hotel. Comfortable enough (if a bit smaller than I expected), but pretty basic overall - and the rooms are beginning to show their age a bit. Service is overall quite good, especially the bellmen.

Room Tip: If you're into New York views, ask for a corner room.

We stayed here for two nights at the end of July. It's in a great location with good staff, it's just a shame you have to share it with the general public. We stayed on a Saturday and Sunday so I guess it's busier than in the week.

You had to queue for ten minutes for the lift as everyone was going to theroof top bar, they should have a guest only lift. We went up to see what it was all about. Great view but nowhere to sit. We then decided to go to their beer garden but we couldn't even get in and no guaranteed access for guests.

The rooms were small and in need of a little modernisation. The bed was amazing though. Quite expensive considering everything was top notch.

Stayed here for 5 days while my partner and I married in NYC.
We usually visit NYC Twice a year and had visited the grill and roof top bar as well as the boom boom rooms in the past. So this was supposed to be extra special....
The room, that was supposed to a superior was tiny , even by NYC standards....we didn't have room to hang even half our clothes, the toilet was quite simply shocking.. I get the vibe, I understand what's its trying to do but... The toilet was just dreadful.
The noise outside our window was really bad, it doesn't help that we were over looking a building site...

Ok the bed was like sleeping in fluffy clouds, but for what we paid its all we really got....
Thanks Standard... Like a horrible one night stand.... Had you... Won't do that again.....

Having not been to Manhattan for several years, I decided to treat myself by staying in an area I had previously not stayed in, and explore. While the staff there are primarily Gen Y, aloof, prone to primping and ambivalent at best to the fact that they are in a service occupation rather than in a starring role in Stephanie Germanotta’s latest music video, it was nonetheless amazing.

Great views of the ESB, MPD and the river. Perfect position with easy access to cross-town buses as well as the subway. Room feels less like a hotel room and more like a (very upscale) room in a house. retro 70s chic and a large table to sit at and lay out all your shopping goodies. The elevator alone with its freaky music, videos and lighting alone is worth a visit.

Sitting astride the High Line, it is fantastic. Feels highly secure, has every luxurious amenity you could desire, and is very quiet (except perhaps Friday and Saturday nights, when the aforementioned Gen Y bogans hit the local nightclubs, particularly the one in the hotel itself, where the noise is palpable until well after midnight)

I love to travel but get a small dose of OCD when it comes to hotels - but the Standard Highline allowed me to totally let my guard down. It was super clean and super chic. My Standard Queen room had a FANTASTIC view of the Hudson River and the city with its amazing floor to ceiling windows. And our receptionist at check-in, Amal, was lovely and welcoming. I will definitely be back. The only thing that's a bit odd is that the shower has no door, and has a window (with shutters) that overlooks the bed, so you'll need to be pretty comfortable if you're sharing the room with someone.

Room Tip: Try to get a room overlooking the hudson and the city. And def try for a higher floor because people...
