Why Stay At The Standard New York
Straddling the High Line in New York's Meatpacking District, this André Balazs haven for hipsters—complete with beer garden, art installations, and Le Bain club—is anything but standard.
André Balazs' fourth Standard hotel, a glass-and-concrete behemoth towering over the Meatpacking District's low-slung warehouses, has fast become a crash pad for the international style set. Inside the Todd Schliemann-designed building—straddling the city's newly expanded High Line park on 60-foot pylons—scene-seeking denizens mingle over Sidecars and single malts. The modish vibe melted away in our fifth-floor room, decorated with a tambour wooden headboard reaching dramatically up to the ceiling; a glass-enclosed shower; and walls of windows showcasing the Hudson River, the Statue of Liberty, and the sprawling cityscape.
In all south facing rooms, it's possible to sit in the tub and see towards the Statue of Liberty. Draw the curtains if you don't want to be an accidental exhibitionist.
The Standard collaborates with the likes of Ryan McGinness and KAWS to create special edition artworks (blankets, socks, decks of cards) that are sold at the shop on the ground floor.
Arrive at LaGuardia Airport (LGA), which is approximately 12 miles (25 - 55 minutes depending on traffic) from the hotel.848 Washington Street, New York, New York, United States

Why We Love New York
Experience electrifying energy at all times of day and night. New York is not just a place—it's a way of life.
Where to Shop: 14th Street + Hudson. Though this corner of Manhattan is known more for nightlife than for shopping, plenty of top boutiques line West 14th Street. Stop by Catherine Malandrino (652 Hudson St) and Alexander McQueen (417 W 14th St) before entering the Atlanta-based department store Jeffrey (449 West 14th St), known for the latest in luxury labels.
Culture Scene: Meatpacking District. Though by no means chockablock full of galleries like Chelsea, the Meatpacking District has an art scene that holds its own, anchored by a branch of the Phillips de Pury auction house for contemporary art, jewelry, and design. 450 West 15th St. 212/940-1200.

Where to Drink: Ara. Sick of the late-night revelers? Surprisingly quaint and low-key, Ara has the charm of a neighborhood wine bar without the velvet ropes. Order the assortment of cheeses (Époisse, pecorino sardo, and Garroxta) served with three types of bread to go with your Côtes du Rhône. Drinks for two $26. 24 Ninth Ave. 212/242-8642. Read More
