Despite its location and never-ending buzz, this is one of the city's relatively reasonable hotels, made clear by the unmemorable yet inoffensive Design Within Reach–style decor. Yet no one can quibble with the jaw-dropping city or river views from the floor-to-ceiling windows in the 337 rooms. Remember that this is a Standard, and those over 35 may feel put off by the hotel's absurdly rich, beautiful, and young clientele. And like André Balazs's other Standards, in Hollywood and downtown L.A., this hotel is not standard issue: The Jetsons-meets-Brutalist glass-and-concrete tower, opened in 2009, ingeniously straddles the High Line promenade. When you are looking for refuge from the Meatpacking District's bridge-and-tunnel scene that swirls below, the hotel's new American grill and the seasonal outdoor Biergarten are good respites. The real place to be seen, however, is on the 18th floor, where you'll pay $25 for a dram at Top of the Standard (previously known as the Boom Boom Room), a bar with unparalleled Hudson River views that is styled like a curvaceous luxury yacht.—Jeff Harris
