- My favorite boutique hotel brand!
- I would DEFINITELY go back.
- Stayed 1 night on 12 January 2016
- Paid $174.47 = $149 room plus $25.47 tax
- Booked using The Standard’s app “One Night Standard” which is described as “Same-night reservations at incredible rates for spontaneous stays.”

Misc: Internet Connection
The internet seemed a little slow…
But for a paid upgrade, you can get faster internet. It says, “I WANT IT EXTRA FAST – Upgrade to premium wifi for $19.95.”
After logging in to the wifi, you see another example of their bold, sexy branding.
Room Design in The Standard High Line New York
An observational listing of elements which I enjoy.
- Use of wood: Headboard, sofa, cabinets, mirror trim, privacy screen.
- Large mirrors: bathtub, bedroom.
- Extremely minimal furniture structure: bedside tables, desk and sofa area, bathroom sink.
- Huge bathtub
- Linens, specifically the comforter on the bed.
- Power plugs near the bed have USB ports.
- There is a substantial Bluetooth speaker to play music in the room.
- Bathroom lights have a dimmer which is great for the morning when I don’t want full brightness.
- Toilet light (the toilet is split into a separate room) has a diffuser that feels art deco.
- The use of gray, which is one of my favorite colors, for the carpet, sofa bench, and the closet curtain.
- Floor to ceiling windows
- Slow WiFi
- No trash can near the sink (but they do have a trash can in the toilet room and a very tiny one in the bedroom which was barely large enough to fit a large Starbucks cup).
- Bed was not as firm as I would like, it was super squishy.
Summary: This is one of my current 2 favorite hotels in NYC!! I loved it. It’s so good. (The other hotel I really like right now is The Roger.) I would most definitely return here.
