Set on the Hudson Riverside, The Standard High Line is an impressive 18-story building that towers above the high line. Its glassy exterior makes it a stunning, modern landmark of downtown New York, and inside the minimalist décor and stylish furnishings create a serene and sophisticated atmosphere. All 338 rooms, including 4 suites offer spectacular views of New York City skyline. On the ground floor of the hotel, a cosy bar and grill offers a stylish twist on American cuisine combining a traditional steakhouse with new American food that is open to try for breakfast or dinner, whilst the German- inspired beer garden offers sausages, pretzels, beer and table tennis.
The Standard, High Line is located in Greenwich Village, in the Meatpacking district of New York City. Greenwich Village is an ideal downtown location for those in search of great food and restaurants, and Whitney Art Museum and Chelsea Market can both be easily reached either by foot or on stylish black and gold bicycles that the hotel provides. Trendy shops and boutiques sit right on the hotel’s doorstep so make sure you pack light. For easy travel around the city, the subway is just a short walk away and the closest airport, La Guardia, is less than eight miles from the hotel.
The Standard Hotel offers 338 rooms, including 4 suites. All of these rooms are naturally well lit and come with breath-taking views of New York City as a result of huge floor-to-ceiling, wall –to-wall windows. If you’re especially lucky, rooms on the South Side offer spectacular views of the beautiful Hudson River. Every room has all of the necessary bathroom amenities and fancy Italian linens and fluffy down pillows ensure for an extremely comfortable stay so you’ll be sure to leave feeling well rested, despite the late nights spent at Le Bain, the Penthouse bar and nightclub.
Why we like it
One of the things that makes this hotel so special is its stunning, panoramic views of New York City. For an unbeatable sunset view, the Top of the Standard is open to everyone from the afternoon until 9pm when it becomes a private members club. Enjoy listening to live jazz music and sipping on specialty cocktails for a classy and sophisticated evening 18 floors above the ground. Next door, Le Bain, the rooftop bar and nightclub offers world class music and even more spectacular views of the city. Go in the summer and you’ll find a delicious creperie and even more exciting, a plunge pool on the dance floor. For those feeling more active, a bike ride along the Hudson River at sunset is an absolute must.
