    André Balazs returns with his latest Standard hotel, this time in the East Village in what was the Cooper Square Hotel in this imposing 21-story high rise building. Balazs knew the neighborhood needed something elevated, but with a hint of the East Village's rebellious and unpretentious vibe, so he refitted the entrance to resemble a New York tenement building.

    Great neighborhood and fantastic views from the room. I did shoot my best picture of lower Manhattan from my bed. The first with the new freedom tower on it.

    I WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN. I am chocked by the service from the hotel staff. I was excited about finally staying at the standard and I liked my room when I checked in. However, my room had a door into my neighbours room with absolutely no sound proof. So when he came home drunk at 1 am in the morning and talked on the phone it was like he was in my room and I could hear the entire conversation. The first night I was so tired from travelling and I ended up going back to sleep. The second night I woke up again at the same time to the same guys conversation on the phone. After 15 min I decided to go down to reception. They told me I couldn't get another room and that they would send up security. I get back up to my room and he is still talking. The reception call ME and tells me the guard is on our floor but he can't hear anything. I couldn't believe it as it was SO loud outside my room and even worse inside the room. Reception ended up calling him. The guy lowered his voice but keep talking on the phone. The sound proof between the rooms are so bad that you can't event watch tv without hearing it. I got like 2 hours sleep that night because I was so upset and jetlagged. I go down to reception again and tell them if I can't get a new room I want to check out. So they tell me they can get me a new room and that they'll move my bags during the day. I get back at 7 pm and ask for my new room. The manger tells me THEY HAVEN'T CHANGED IT because they're at capacity and wonder who I spoke to. This is has been the worst stay ever and I am exhausted from not sleeping properly. I don't understand what I am paying for.

    I had a superb stay at the Standard. I was on the 20th floor - exceptional views towards the East River and over LES. The staff were brilliant and attentive, the room well appointed and the bars and restaurants excellent, too. The brunch was good, the location is great and all round excellent stay.

    Pros: It's naturally cool...not a bunch of idiots trying to be cool. There's a big difference, atmosphere so nice, inviting. King Corner Suite is a very spacious, good room. So much light! I was on the 7th floor, and it was super quiet and away from the elevator. Bed is on the soft side, which I like, but it's gonna bug you if you're a firm bed person. The courtyard garden is a dream in the day. Get there in the fall when you can still sit outside. Intelligentsia coffee available at place like two doors down, great convenience, best coffee. Crunch Fitness is right across the street so you have no excuse. Heated floors in the bathroom aaaaah heaven. The staff at the front desk is out of this world friendly. Smiles, helpful, just the best ever. The menu/staff at the streetfront lobby bar/restaurant are terrific. The omelet, the salad. Cons: You pay this much money, you need blackout curtains, not awkward curtains that don't open all the way without catching on the TV cords. This review would be five stars if there were blackout curtains. The bath products weren't what I expected, but that's such a personal/scent issue. Some of the channels on the TV didn't work. That said, I didn't contact the management about it. I'm sure they would have fixed it because they fixed my water almost immediately after I arrived. That lovely courtyard garden where I worked and relaxed in the day turns into an overpriced restaurant with terrible bland food and weak drinks. A violent departure from the service/food at the lobby place across the hall. Weird. My lip pillow was hipster cool...but it was also torn at the seams, just one of those things.

    I stayed at the Standard East Village with my Mom who was visiting / celebrating her 60th birthday. I reached out to Paige (manager of guest experience) to see if there was anything she could help me with to make it a special experience. Paige went above and beyond in making it the best birthday ever. She emailed me back right away with all the information I needed and was so helpful in choosing a bottle of champagne to surprise the birthday girl with. She offered to hand write a note and look out for a complimentary upgrade which we got!!! She also set out complimentary snacks in our room & checked in with me throughout our stay to make sure everything was good. Paige is amazing & did everything in her power and more to make it a perfect experience!!! When my Mom arrived the bell boys and the front desk greeted her and wished her a happy birthday and were so welcoming. Every time we saw them they were so excited to see us - genuinely asked how we were and again wished my Mom happy birthday. It was truly one of the BEST staffs I have ever seen, I would 100% come back just for the hospitality.

    There is nothing standard about "The Standard, East Village" - well, it seems the standard of excellence is what the name may imply. What a wonderful 3 nights and 4 days I had in this hotel - from the moment I walked into the front doors and was greeted by an enthusiastic front desk team, to the time I left the entire hotel experience was wonderful. I have to admit I may be a bit overwhelmed simply because the panoramic very from my suite on the 20th floor (room 2008) was breathtaking. However, NYC has many hotels with "views", but what made this hotel wonderful is the substance behind the scenes and atmosphere. The hotel is located in the "East Village" - a quirky, hip neighborhood that has transitioned over the years into a mixture of wonderful residential streets mixed in with all kinds of businesses and even some new corporate entities like IBM making a splash down the street with the new innovative marketing operations related to "Watson" - attracting an intelligence quotient supported by NYC that makes this neighborhood very special indeed. Back to the hotel - the room (bed!) was extremely comfortable - and I will never take another shower again without feeling neglected - the bathroom floor is heated and the in-shower steam system makes the shower over the top - while any exhibitionist will be in heaven because the shower and bath itself is surrounded in glass - so you shower literally overlooking the city. I was afraid to ask (and didn't) - and only assumed the windowed are tinted or positioned from the outside such that I was no "mooning" anyone during my stay! LOL. Seriously, the room is great, bed extremely comfortable and extremely quiet (someone told me the windows are sound proofed - not sure if that is accurate but it was an extremely quiet room). I ordered room service and had breakfast/lunch in the restaurant, and the food is also delicious, along with excellent service. So, stay here without hesitation. Bear in mind this is not the Mandarin Oriental, Peninsula, or Four Seasons type luxury, but for those who want a more casual and trendy experience, combined with many of the nice aspects of 5-star properties, The Standard East Village is the perfect solution. I can't wait to come back again. Thanks to the staff and everyone for making my stay so special.

    Outstanding hotel. From welcoming guests at check-in to the rooms to the amenities. Everything is outstanding. Great little breakfast restaurant that is turned into a beautiful bar for the evenings. Great garden.

    I love the Standard Hotels and in particular the East Village property on the Bowery in NYC, as the staff and management are extraordinary. My family recently stayed at the EV property and it was a five star experience for them due to the incredible team at this property. Thanks again for everything and always being just fabulous.

    Been going here for years and let me tell you the property does not miss anything! From check in, room service, the bar and so on! They do not miss a beat when it comes to your needs! Definitely worth the stay!

    10 days is usually a long time for me in a hotel; however, the staff, the location, the view from the 15th floor and the amenities made the time fly. Great little hotel just off Cooper Square. Highly recommended.

    I've been traveling to NYC a few times a year and this hotel out-delivered any other of my experiences. The rooms were spacious offering a king size bed, full amenities and a great view. The outdoor garden is perfect for relaxing and the food in any of their restaurants is outstanding. The staff is also very friendly and happy to help.

    The staff was great from check in to check out. The floor to ceiling windows made for some of the best views I've enjoyed at a hotel in NYC. If I'm in the area I will stay here going forward. Stayed in two different rooms and they are well laid out with surprising amount of room for the city. Great options surrounding the property too, restaurants, stores, etc.

    I was looking forward to my visit to the Standard, as I typically stay in a major brand hotel, and I was curious to see what kind of chic, urban experience the Standard could provide. Overall, it was very disappointing. I'll start with the positives first .. of which there were a few ... * Location is great -- not many hotels service East Village, and the Standard is within walking distance of Astor Place, and only a 15 minute walk from Greenwich Village * Front desk and housekeeping staff were very nice and friendly. * The rooms do have floor-to-ceiling windows, which are pretty cool. Unfortunately, these good factors do not make up for ... * The guest rooms have an overwhelming cheap deodorizer smell - by design!. It smells like what they use in rental cars when trying to remove cigarette smoke odors. When I mentioned it to the front desk at checkout, they told me that this "scent" is intentionally pumped into each room. Unbelievable -- it really is an unpleasant smell. * The smoking area is literally right outside the main front doors ... so it is impossible to enter the hotel without walking through a cloud of smoke. * Despite the amazing floor-to-ceiling windows, the desk in my room was tucked in a small dark alcove next to the door -- virtually the only place in the room where it is impossible to see any windows! * When I tried to call the front desk to ask about getting an iron/ironing board. I couldn't find anything in the room which listed the front desk number. There's literally no way to contact the front desk from your room. * Restaurant is way over prices -- more than $20 for a continental breakfast. Better to walk up the block to Ray's pizza for fresh NY bagels. * The real kicker came when I saw my credit card bill. After checkout, they charged me an extra $40. When I called to inquire, I was referred to "accounting" where it literally took 6 calls to get someone on the line. She told me that I was charged for a bottle of Smirnoff Vodka -- which was completely ridiculous. When I told her that I didn't purchase any vodka, she was surprised and told me that she had to check with the front office and that I should call back in a few hours to see if they were willing to reverse the charges. I asked her to call me instead, and of course, she never did. I can see from the reviews that some people love this place. I won't be going back.

    Lovely hotel. Friendly staff. Convenient for soho and easy access to metro. Safe neighbourhood. I had fabulous views of 4th of July fireworks from my room. Cafe does a pretty good coffee and breakfast.

    Thought I booked standard high line but it was east village. Turned out to be a great night. Rooms are small but definitely nice. Great service from staff as well. My only complaint is that the elevator in the hall every single time someone gets on or off it's thus LOUD beep. Very unnecessary and annoying in the middle of the night. I would go back but maybe ask for a room away from that.

    The hood is so New York and near from everything you need. The ambience of Standard is so cool and the staff is very nice always trying to please you. The bed are extremely comfortable and if you can stay at the high floors the view is amazing. The only thing I complain is the size of the wardrobe. It´s too small for more than one person an more than a couple of days. Just to clarify I´m a very organize person so when I stay at a hotel I like to organize my clothes and take out of my side my luggage. But I recommend the Standard east Village

    The grinning pillow that greets you from the kingsize bed, with its Simon Cowell white teeth, is pretty much how we were left feeling after our stay here! Its just a fun place to be around. Our booking started with a phone call direct and I was greeted by Paige whom i had read from a review reply on here was a 'rockstar'. Well, i can confirm that this is the case as she didnt pull out a Fender and smash the solo from Lynyard Skinnards Freebird but my goodness did she go out of her way to make our stay there that little bit more special! We have little monsters..no not kids but Schnauzers and we looking for a pet friendly place to stay (not easy) and on hearing of our bearded friends Paige was as excited to meet them as we are being with them. This place likes dogs and ours were treated like VIPs. They even had a welcome note for them in our room AND organic doggie treats! As they already have beards and now are eating organic all they beed now are tattoos and they will be proper hipster dogs. As our room wasnt quite ready on arrival, we sat and had juice in the tranquility of The Standards outside garden..this is so welcome from the craziness of NYC streets. A real hidden gem of a place. We requested a room with an East river view so, as an Englishman with an Amercan girlfriend, I could humbly watch your 4th July firework celebrations of no longer being part of our Empire. The view was stunning..just perfect. World Trade One was to our right which at night was something else. After beeing treated to quite a show of gunpowder we slept in the most comfortable bed EVER and in the morning had breakfast in the outside cafe. Breakfast was delicious..the chicken sausages were a sausage sensation. Every member of staff we met were just gave the best genuinely nice service to us and always made the doggies feel very welcom. Special note to the guy who gave us a tour on arrival and very kindly allowed us to the 21st floor to see the views from the outside balcony and of course to Paige, whom from start to finish, made our stay fabulous. Somehow she knew of mine and my girlfriends shared love of Punk Rock music and included this in some reccomendations while we were in the East Village...this is beyond customer service and is deserving of special acknowledgement. Thank you. This place rocks!

    In a word, wow. When you arrive at a hotel and immediately think to yourself, "I want to live here," you know you've found something special. I recently stayed at The Standard, East Village for five days while throwing a fundraising event for It Gets Better Project in the property's stunning penthouse. First, a word about the penthouse - if you're ever in need of a unique and breathtaking space to throw an event, this is it. The views are astounding, the space is open and airy and you feel like you are literally floating above Manhattan. You'll capture incredible photos up here. But back to the hotel... this is literally an escape from the hustle and bustle of Manhattan. The garden area to the back of the hotel offers games, coffee, greenery and a quiet getaway from the craziness of NYC. The cafe gives a bistro feel - the sort of place where you unwind with a cup of coffee, catch up on emails, catch up with friends and just unwind. Rooms are extremely well appointed with comfortable beds and showers that offer an incredible view of the city - something you won't realize you've wanted in a shower until you have it. The front desk and event staff make you feel instantly welcomed and are on hand to take care of your every need. The Standard, East Village is one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in, and the care with which they handled our event was much-appreciated. They made us feel important and it was difficult to leave and get back to the real world. We highly recommend this property.

    The word here is lively. Wow, the East Village is jumping and the bars and restaurants at the SEV are part of the scene. The rooms are smallish but cleverly designed. The view from the shower stall was a bonus. The safe in the room is large and works easily. The rooftop bar is closed except for private functions. Pity. Staff is sharp and efficient at front desk. Breakfast a bit chaotic for some reason. But that is a quibble. For the price it is hard to do better

    I stayed at this property several times over the years. My stay last week reminded me why I am always on the verge of leaving a review. My primary reason for staying at this hotel is the location, next to NYU. Other than that, I feel this i a weak proposition and value for the room price. Sure the bell boys are nice and polite, the minimal lobby is bathed with coolness and hip music and the hallways are mirrored and dark. Once you are past this first impression, you get very little. Upon checkin, the front desk was a zoo. Checking form has not been pre-printed, not has my wife been recognized for her many stays at the property. Naturally the room was tiny (706 - avoid), with very minimal amenities. Air conditioning was noisy and impossible to keep at a proper level. One light in the bathroom did not work. The sink had cigarette burn marks. There was no coffee machine in the room. The hotel has three elevators, out of which one if for service. Regardless, the service people use all three, all the time. There was also maintenance been done and one was out of commission, so it took us, after waiting in line, 31 minutes to get to our floor, mid day, mid week.. Bar is way expensive with weak food proposition. AVOID and walk out to the many options in the streets around. In summary, if it was not for the location, I would have skipped this place altogether. Very pretentious and poor value.. Hopefully the other Standard is better..

    THE BEST SERVICE I HAVE EVER HAD AT A NYC HOTEL. I am a native New Yorker.My apartment in the Village had a massive fire this week so I stayed here last night, 6/29. The staff was so kind and compassionate. Every staff member I encountered asked about my situation and how they could help. From the Managing Director Renita, to Paige the Guest Experience Manager to Randolfo in their amazing restaurant Narcissa all made me feel so welcome during a very stressful time. THEY BOUGHT ME DINNER!!! EPIC HOTEL, FOOD, SERVICE and STAFF. STAY HERE.
