The Standard Highline

Greenwich Village, New York

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.

We stayed at the Standard from the end of June into the beginning on July in the summer of 2019 and it was definitely a hotel for nightlife. Getting around the hotel during the night hours was definitely a bit of a hassle, but the location was great and was located near the Chelsea Market. The hotel staff were accommodating. The soaps in the shower smelled great and I have been trying to buy some but haven’t been able to find the products anywhere. We would also stop by The Standard Plaza for a snack mid-day while visiting. The iced tea that they served was amazing and I have been trying to find a tea similar and haven’t been able to find it anywhere (if anyone knows the brand, help me out!!). Room size wasn’t a huge problem for me, especially since you don’t typically spend a lot of time in your hotel room while on vacation. Definitely a fun hotel for younger people and would recommend for anyone looking for a fun hotel atmosphere. Read less

if you want anything added to your room... which i HIGHLY recommend... call concierge and ask for Lillian Clew. She made our staycation the best trip ever. She was so helpful and went above and beyond with my room request. She took my partners and i's nick names and rolled with them HARD. thank you again Lillian.

The entire experience was spot on from start to finish. I had the help of Anna at the front desk when checking in. She upgraded my room free of charge and was so sweet. Room was clean, views were out of this world, and the atmosphere was just so cozy. Would def recommend and come back. Thank you Anna!
