Standard Hotel is (softly) Open
The new Standard Hotel that bridges over the High Line at Little West 12th Street has recently opened its doors for a soft opening. While the club, lounge, restaurant, and bars are still very much under construction, ten floors of guest rooms are currently open. And I quote: "We'll put up with your banging if you'll put up with ours..."
We hear that the rooms are gorgeous -- and who can hate the view? Current rates range in price from $195 for a room with a Queen-size bed to $495 for a suite. See Gothamist for more info and a great slideshow.
