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.

My visit to Standard High was really an amazing stay, upon check in my room did not have a tub which I really wanted. The manager Samantha took the time to find me a room with a tub, the hotel was fully booked so her magical attitude and graciousness changed my experience. The room had a great view and suited my purpose. Thank you Standard HL.… Read more

Pros: great location to walk and enjoy the High Line and Meatpacking District; great views from the higher floors; very trendy; smartphone charger/speaker in-room; shower water pressure; nighttime view from the rooftop is gorgeous; the employees we dealt with were nice; the in-elevators display is entertaining and trippy Considerations: rooms are very small; platform beds are are so low that they are almost on the floor; lots of people want to go Top of the Standard -- crowded even during hours only open to patrons staying in the hotels; Cons: lavatory is, basically, a closet; A/C did not work (we were given 2 drink tickets at the No Pool on the Plaza when we brought that to staff's attention); views from lower rooms are not as good for the price; the "no pool on the plaza" is trying SO hard to be trendy that it's cloying; hotel/bar is not very good at communicating when certain aspects of the bars/rooftop/etc are open vs. closed; Read less

Obviously still very trendy hotel and in a good location, loved by hipsters, but at the end of the day what you'll get is a fancy and memorable lift up to your small, dated und unpractical room with little storage space and sealed windows at a sky high rate thats simply not worth the experience. Not a bad choice if it was well below 200 dollars.

I love love love the location, trendy decor, vibe etc if the hotel. It has some good positives but some really silly let downs that don’t make it worth the high fee. Positives: friendly and fast staff, very clean, modern, bathroom amenities, gym is good and free laundry for gym (4 items per room per day), cool rooftop bar and good standard grill… Read more
I love love love the location, trendy decor, vibe etc if the hotel. It has some good positives but some really silly let downs that don’t make it worth the high fee. Positives: friendly and fast staff, very clean, modern, bathroom amenities, gym is good and free laundry for gym (4 items per room per day), cool rooftop bar and good standard grill for breakfast at normal NYC prices. Negatives: the room was quite small and if you are on a high floor then you’ll hear the base and people talking from the nightclub, the Peleton’s in the gym didn’t work and one was placed on a slant so a bit wonky which was quite off putting when trying to cycle, the laundry benefit was great but 4 items is not enough for two people in a room especially if one is female given we normally have a sports bra as well as a top, most importantly the lifts were horrendous for guests, so many people (not staying at the hotel) trying to get up to the rooftop bar or nightclub meant we had to wait 10-15 mins each time we wanted to get up or leave our room (we asked and were told that we couldn’t use the stairs) and they really needed someone working there guiding at the bottom of the lift to advise non-guests that the lifts don’t actually take you to the rooftop bar! If they can sort those really fixable things out it will be a much much better rating and worth the hefty price tag. If not then dreams just a few blocks away is much better and with a pool!

During a 4-Week US Trip, we decided to stay at the Standard Highline and had the best stay on our whole travel. Located in the Heart of the Meatpacking District, the Standard High Line offers all for a perfect New York experience. The great staff, especially Eszter, made our stay unforgettable. The rooms are perfectly designed with a breathtaking view. The Top of the Standard Bar is one of most well-designed and beautiful Bars we ever been to and the views towards Manhattan and the Financial District are just amazing. On our next trip to New York , we will definitely stay again at the Standard Highline. Read less
