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.

Our room was very well designed, with quality fittings. View was great too! The rooftop bar was too busy for my liking. The hotel is in a great location. $400 / night but no breakfast included was the only real downside

All the promos hype the trendy location. But the property is very bland. And the rooms are expensive and small -- even for NYC. And to make everything fit, the mattress is plunked onto a 3 inch pad (no box spring), the closet doesn't have a door, limited drawers, end table on only side, and there is a glass wall between the bathroom and… Read more
All the promos hype the trendy location. But the property is very bland. And the rooms are expensive and small -- even for NYC. And to make everything fit, the mattress is plunked onto a 3 inch pad (no box spring), the closet doesn't have a door, limited drawers, end table on only side, and there is a glass wall between the bathroom and sleeping area. And while the toilet has a door, the bathroom doesn't. I don't know about others, but I like a little privacy when I'm in the bathroom. Read less

Such a beautiful hotel with amazing staff, romantic and fun details, and the location couldn't be better, especially with Little Island opening across the street. The views are incredible, and outside of room service being either perfect or totally off, it was an ideal stay. Cannot wait to stay here again!

All the staff with whom I interacted at this hotel were so polite, friendly, and full of energy! The room was spotless and had an absolutely picturesque view of the Hudson, and the staff went the extra mile to make sure I had a great weekend away from home. Would stay again!

The coolest hotel with amazing views and service. Very safe and convenient location as well. The people at the Front Desk are the best, always very attentive and friendly. I’d definitely recommend it and come back every time I travel to the city.
