I love The Standard New York. It's my home away from home during my travel to New York City. The staff has made me feel so welcome. The location is outstanding!
- Free Wifi
I stay at hotels about 90 days a year and I don't ever remember being so humiliated ever. The service is terrible and the staff is unbelievable arrogant. They think they are the hottest thing in the world but in reality it is just a modern hip hotel in a location that I would call a dump. It was probably my biggest mistake to stay there and I had originally booked for 4 nights and left after the first night even though they had to charge for another night!
Love this place - the NY office of my company is two blocks away so this is by far the most convenient location for me. Views are great from the room and the gym is awesome. Its a bit nightcluby so if you're not dressed to impress you'll feel a little sloppy.
+++The view of the room was priceless! Relaxing on the fantastic bed with the softest linnen ever was so nice after a whole day walking in the city. Waking up at 5 AM due to jet lag and watching the city wake up, what an experience. Brian the bell boy was extremely nice and made our fist impression of the hotel very good.
- - - The staff had an attitude (except Brian off course). Don't know why because they are there at my service not the other way around. As someone else already posted here you sometimes feel you need to please them.
If you can ignore the stuck up faces of the staff (except Brian off course) it's a wonderfull hotel.
Stayed at the Standard for four nights in november and loved the hotel and most of all the area. The hotel itself is very cool and modern in a retro 50s style a la Mad Men! Fabulous in every detail! Large rooms for NY standard with amazing views (we stayed at 17th floor). The bed was large and very comfy and the room had all the neccessary elements! Cool furnitures, free wifi, large TV, bathtub and even conditioner (which per se is my definition of a good hotel)! The service was good, although I must add that I was rather put of when we on friday night was stopped in the door when we tried to get up to the bar on the 18th floor. Apparently the bar is privately run after 10.00 on weekend nigths and it's not enough to stay at the hotel, you have to be on the list. The bar was absolutely marvelous though, but watch our the the bloody mary as the bartender didn't seem to know that it's not enough with spice, you have to add tomato juice as well.....we had to ask for extra juice three times. The area was great, with cool bars and restaurant in every corner and nice strech for walks (along the pier and on the high line). We didn't try the grill for dinner although I'm sure it's excellent. Breakfast was very good though, but pricey. Would definitively recommend this hotel, maybe not for quiet romance but absolutely for friends looking for a good time! The hotel was pretty loud on weekends, in party mode...
We went for 4 days in new york and the hotel was superb. beautiful service. immaculate rooms with a wonderful view. the food was beyond delicious, from amazing salmon at lunch time and the best breakfast in new york. we couldnt have had a better four days.
no complaints whatsoever, truly incredible.
