“Great time”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

I was really looking forward to our trip to the highline. I was a little nervous because of the mixed reviews. However, I really enjoyed the hotel. We were in a Hudson Studio with views in three different direction: uptown, downtown and the Hudson. We could see the Statute of Liberty, the Freedom Tower, and the Empire State building. Just amazing. I think some of the reviewers with negative comments go to the Highline with the wrong expectations. It is not a luxurious, cushy hotel. It has a different vibe. Its styling is more modern and trendy but that is okay and the décor reflects this modern and minimalist style.

We found the staff to be great, from the valet parkers, to the beautiful and friendly receptionist and to the restaurant staff at the Standard Grill. Room service for breakfast was fast and friendly. We did not have a problem getting into Le Bain, even though we were older than the typical patron. Although it wasn't as wild and crazy as I thought it would be. They should, as other reviewers said, allow hotel guest easier access to the roof top bars. You can get there but you have to go outside and line up on 13th street. That's weird. Same thing trying to get back to your room from the club at night. You have to go down outside and then go through the lobby. I guess they need to control access to the guest room floors but it is still a pain.

Of course the location in the meat packing district is great. Lots of shops, restaurants and places to visit and not too far from midtown or Soho.

There are a couple of criticisms that I have. The main counter/console in the room had wood veneer trim which was splitting and delaminating. They need to spend a little money on the furniture to keep it fresh. I also thought it was odd that the floor in the front dining room of the Standard Grill seemed pretty dirty. Maybe it is stained but it just doesn't look good at all. Clean or replace the floor.

Overall lots of fun.

Room Tip: Our room has views to the North, South and West because it was a Hudson Studio. If I had to pick a...

Style here rates way too highly over substance. This Standard is geared more as a night club than a hotel. Even then, unless you intend to spend your time queuing, vogueing, being ignored by staff and partying in equal measure forget it. Guests rate last. Sleep, just above that. The receptionist told a guest checking in to an upper floor that it may be an issue if they were "sensitive to noise": good advice! Those with ears are better served elsewhere. We were on a slightly lower floor and I needed my noise cancelling earbuds for sleeping. On Saturday night, even they were beaten. The top floor bar is spectacular, although near impossible to access. Once inside, the glamorous wait staff will snub you unless they know you or you are more glamorous than them: the room was spoiled by the people in it. The Biergarten had a line which snaked around the corner. On the plus side the concierge staff were pleasant and helpful and the bikes were great if you got one. On check out, I queried a mini bar charge and was told there was no option but to charge it. When I asked about my promised F&B credit, I was told that could not be done although to compensate the receptionist gained the ability to revoke the minibar tab. This confirmed my view that the staff are trained to say no over yes, although they do look good doing it.

I have stayed in many higher end hotels in NYC, and I have to say from the person who answered the phone to the check out the staff could not have been friendlier or eager to help in any way.
The room was spotless room service fast and deliciuos and reasonable as far as room service goes
I would highly reccomend this hotel and look forward to staying there again

Room Tip: ask for a room overlooking the Highline

I spend 2 night in this wonderful hotel.
The location of the hotel is nice in the meetpacking area.
Easy to go in Soho and there are a lot of place to do shopping in the area
The decoration, the view and the food are great but the staff is not very friendly sometimes a little bit rude and the service is very long.

So we finally decided to stay here with so many options in NYC. The rooms are very small and the room with the toilet is a joke. I get the vibe and it's the place to be but seriously for 600 there is way better. Coming here does not get you in the clubs after 10pm even though the doorman Rob was a great guy. Come here for the bars but do yourself a favour and go to the other 100 way better hotels.

Room Tip: Corner suite if your forced to stay here.

The hotel is located in Meatpacking district which is where you wanna be if you like to party 7 days a week. The streets are load and full of people on most nites and crazy on the weekends.

The hotel is located right in the middle of lots of restaurants, clubs and bars which is great. Getting to other areas of NYC is also fairly easy from here.

Good :
Location
Cool room design and ver clean overall
Nice overall feel of a boutique hotel with prompt service
The bar on the top floor is outstanding

Bad :
Even in a US$600 per night suite room there is no coffee machine(very standard thing in this class of a hotel)
Small rooms with a big big windows. I loved it but some people may not like this lack of privacy and having to open and close the curtains
Door policy of the Le Bain club sucks. As hotel guests you should get access but not here !
Street noise can be heard in your room if you are bellow a certain level. I was on 5th floor and could hear people partying even after 3 am.

I checked out a day before I was suppose to and moved to another hotel in NYC for a goodnight sleep to end my NYC visit :)

When the first time i entered my room...... the view was AWESOME. I could see the entire financial district and the hudson river from my room. And bit far in the water statue of liberty.

The room was small but like most of the boutique hotels in NY the room size was perfect. The bed was cozy and good.
But again the view was one of the best i have ever seen.
While on the treadmill you will be facing towards the Hudson river and below you will see the beautiful High line. So you will not mind running little bit longer thn usual ; )

The restaurants below the hotel are good. But the club above the hotel is really cool. It's called Boom Boom room. Theres always a long waiting queue to get in.

When you walk out of the hotel u r in the middle of meatpacking district. one of the best place to party in NY.

The the staff in the front office were really friendly and helpful (not like the other places i stayed in NY)

Next time i m there in the city I m definitely staying there.
