The Standard New York – Hotel Review

The Standard New York – Hotel Review

I recently had the pleasure of staying 3 nights at The Standard hotel’s NY location. Perched above The Highline Park in Manhattan’s “cool if you have money but no taste slash drive a Ferrari” Meatpacking District (as evident by the Ed Hardy store across the way), The Standard boasts magnificent, sweeping views of the city through floor to ceiling windows. It’s a nice place.

I was lucky enough to enjoy a King Deluxe room. Described by some friends of mine as “a room designed specifically for after-party orgies” the open concept bathing area was a definite highlight for late night drunken bath/Magnolia Bakery cupcake eating sessions (hey, it was my birthday!) The selection of magazines (readable), bed (comfortable), TV (with real channels), free WiFi (which you’d think would be a no brainer in this day and age, but is often not) and bath products (Kiss My Face organic) were all appreciated on a rainy weekend.

Speaking of rain (monsoon?), the “free to try” umbrella was also much appreciated – while it lasted. These winds were no joke.

Oh and did I mention the view (looking out at Jersey here from the 15th floor)? Highly recommended.
