New York’s The Standard High Line

Hovering above Highline on concrete pillars in Manhattan, New York stands one of the most sheik hotels The Standard High Line. The rooms have panoramic views of the city because of the floor-to-ceiling windows and feature hip, compact furniture. The bathrooms are surrounded by huge glass panels and have either huge rainfall showers or deep soaking tubs. For such a high end hotel, the room service is reasonable. Most entrees range from $9 to $14, similar to the Standard Grill, which is reasonably priced as well. The Standard Grill is made with a penny tiled floor, which gives it a more modern yet rustic feel. The elevators are like nothing you have even seen. They feature a video installation that represent heaven, when going up, and hell, when going down. The Standard has very friendly and attentive staff, and even offer a 24 hour concierge that helps guest reserve a table at a high-profile restaurant or club. The hotel is just blocks from the most popular nightlife and shopping and is safe to roam the streets at night because of the popular nightlife. If you don’t want to hit the town and just stay at the hotel, The Standard offers several bars and a beer garden. The Standard Beer Garden has a small menu of draft beers and has its staff serving oversized pretzels. The Biergarten is a more casual bar, which is open Monday-Saturday until 1am and Sundays until 12am. Living Room is a more hip bar that has DJ’s spinning, a four foot-deep Jacuzzi and a roof terrace. Top of the Standard is a more exclusive bar that is a celebrity hot spot and his not always open to the public. The Standard High Line just might be the hippest hotel in New York City.
