Our favourite rooms
The views get better the higher you go, so plump for 8th floor and above if you can. The Standard Room 11.20, for example, has fabulous views of the Hudson River and the Statue of Liberty, but if you prefer looking out of the Manhattan skyline, any room ending in .25 looks out to the north and .24s have corner windows. The Standard Suites are far and away the most glamorous, with three walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, so you can gawp at three-way sunset views from the free-standing bath tub. All the Standard High Line’s rooms feature either deep-set bath tubs open to the living area or exposed glass-walled showers, so this is not a hotel for bashful bathers. The top-floor club stays lively into the earlier hours, so ask for a room on the lower floors for a more peaceful night's sleep.
Bring an empty suitcase – the stylish stores and fashion boutiques on the Standard’s doorstep can easily supply you with a new wardrobe to take home.
The hotel provides cool black-and-gold bikes for guests, and the ride along the Hudson riverside is a sunset treat. More exercise awaits on the 17th floor, where a flashy gym has some pretty special views.
Cribs for babies can be supplied free, and babysitting can be organised for $25 an hour.
