The Standard Highline

Chelsea, New York

Virgin rating

The hotel

There’s nothing standard about The Standard, High Line. Located on the High Line (a disused rail track that’s become a ‘go to’ sight for travellers and a ‘go to’ park for New Yorkers), The Standard has a cool Meatpacking District address. Its sepia and white rooms have a slight 70s vibe with floor-to-ceiling windows offering stunning views over Manhattan or the Hudson River (or both). Sociable from top to toe, the penthouse floor belongs to Le Bain, a rooftop club that stays open until 4am most nights, while the street level brings you the pretzels, sausages, and beers of The Standard Biergarten, and the seaside-inspired menu of The Standard SeaShack.

Bathrooms are not great, water pressure is bad. It took 45 minutes to fill the tub half way. Extra bath soap is $50. For the premium price we pay, i expected to have easier access to Le Bain and other parties but no, you'll have to stand in the 30+ minutes line like everyone else.

Best stay ever!!! Stayed for a whole week and loved every minute of it. I will definitely stay at the Standard next time I’m in New York. The service was excellent, my room was perfect in every way, everything just run smoothly. And Seth and Jewel where everything!

Staff was really kind and funny. Loved the location, everything was super clean and new. The bed was really comfortable and I loved the desk in our room. They knew I was traveling for work so they were mindful of putting me in a room farther away from the nightclub :). Great coffee and food downstairs. The Biergarten was the perfect place for our work happy hour. Just one hiccup where they asked for my CC for incidentals but failed to mention there would be a $200 / day hold. But instead there was an instant $2500 hold so I couldn't use my Amex for the rest of my business trip. But they were apologetic and other than that, it was a fantastic stay. Definitely looking forward to coming back! Read less

Great location, nice food, and very trendy 'cool' vibe. However AC was broken in the gym, rooms are very minimal without things like dressers, poor noise isolation between rooms / windows / hallway, very tiny spaces. Annoying dark 'artsy' elevators.
