For some time now the East Village has suffered from a certain imbalance — plenty of places to dine and drink, but nowhere to stay. It’s a situation that’s found some resolution in recent years, as a building boom in Manhattan’s south-eastern quadrant has made space for a new wave of modern boutique hotels, some of them, like the newly christened Standard, East Village, situated in gleaming modern high-rises.
It’s hard to miss the towering curves and angles of the Standard, surrounded as it is by a relatively low-rise district. And from inside the rooms it makes for unique perspectives on the East Village rooftops as well as the downtown bridges and classic uptown skyscrapers. Windows are floor-to-ceiling, and the in-room amenities are pure luxury-boutique: iPod stereos, Blu-ray DVD players, mosaic-tile bathrooms and three different bathrobes to choose from. All this and warmth too — the modern furnishings are set off against charmingly retro wood paneling and bookshelves stocked with handsome leather volumes.
The other half of a New York boutique-hotel package is the nightlife — though this, it’s been said, will be a somewhat more restrained affair than the to-the-wall excess of its cousin in the Meatpacking District. The restaurant/bar is a fine start, an indoor-outdoor venue that somehow feels both like a well-kept secret and like a part of the neighborhood. And the location places you within striking distance of most of the best of lower Manhattan — check out one of the Standard’s loaner bikes and see for yourself.
Please note: From September 17th, 2012 through late summer 2013, The Standard, East Village will be reconfiguring its ground floor and working on a new restaurant.
