The Standard Hi Line, in New York, New York is our first stop on this hotels-to-home adventure. We LOVE the location of this hotel. It is located right on the edge of the meat packing district, with some of the best shopping in New York. These retailers are adjacent to the HiLine which you can enjoy during off hours as well as Chelsea Market. Be sure to enjoy a HiLine happy hour at the Standard Biergarten, the rooftop at Catch, or The Tippler under Chelsea Market on a cold day. The Boom Boom Room on top of the Standard is an iconic lounge not to be missed. My husband and I love to take in the view while sipping on artisan cocktails. I typically roam around and obsess over the design details of the space. I prefer enjoying the Boom Boom Room during the day, at night the sparkling lounge lives up to it’s name, and we rarely make it out past midnight these days.
Staying at the Standard Hi Line is like staying inside the heart of the Meatpacking District. The pulse of the lively neighborhood is palpable and soaking up all of this luxe corner that Manhattan has to offer is the perfect retreat for those of us energized by such dynamic and fashionable scenes. The HiLine is obviously a highlight, as I use at as my walkway along the Hudson. I recommend a a stroll from the Whitney Museum to the Javits Center. The Whitney Museum of American Art also known as, The Whitney, designed by Renzo Piano (my favorite architect), is not only architecturally inspiring, but an art lover’s haven.
I could easily spend an afternoon meandering through the beautifully diffused lit galleries. However, please note, the HiLine is heavily trafficked during the day, so I avoid crowds by accessing as early as possible.
The hotel was designed by Roman and Williams, an iconic firm who continually pushes hospitality design to the next level. The rooms are simple, modern and inviting with a warm neutral palette. Think of warm tones like camel leather, soft gray upholstery
and white linens. However, the view from the room is truly the star of the show. You know EXACTLY where you are staying at the Standard HiLine.
Roman and Williams continued their sleek and warm aesthetic in the bathroom design as well. The vanities and showers have vertical brick tiles with modern wall mounted faucets and open leg chrome consoles with simple details and adequate storage. Below are some of our selections inspired by our stay at one of New York’s most bumpin’ and vibrant hotels.
