The Standard Hotel is really not your "standard" hotel. It's located smack in the middle of the meat packing district and this location is short from boring. The fashion scene is magical with shops like Alexander McQueen, DVF, Hugo Boss, Stella McCartney and more. If you look out your window at 4am people are walking around and taxi's are still in service. I finally used my prize i won in Polyvore last year. I went the weekend of labor day and what an awesome trip it was.
All the staff were nice, polite and very welcoming. To go in the hotel you have to spin through a funky yellow door, i don't know what those doors are called, but i call them funky, lol
The lobby itself is chic and modern. Simple, but stylish. After getting my key and room number i walked toward the elevators, which made me believe i was alice lost in mirror land. It was cool, with all those mirrors i went the wrong way a few times, but that is the fun part.

Straight to the 12th floor i headed. *Open's door* OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG, freaking awesome. I felt like a little kid in a giant, but tiny doll house. I quickly went to the window and saw the great view of the hudson river and the city line of Manhattan. I've heard of this awesome view and every word of it was true...SPEECHLESS.
Then i opened every thing, from the mini bar to the single toilet behind a door. The bathtub was my favorite. I imagined myself taking a bubble bath over looking the river at night, while all the pretty NewYork lights sparkled. I loved the hotel more when i saw

This was my first day there. I got to wear my Vivienne Tam dress, which i also won in a polyvore contest to dinner at Macelleria, that food was so good.
MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM....prefect portion too. After dinner i went to the 18th floor of the standard, where there is a bar and club. The party does not start till 11pm -2am, but it was a holiday so it closed at 4am.
Went to sleep and had another adventure the next day. I will do a post on that tomorrow. It was nice seeing labels that are so often used in polyvore. I will write about the fashion there in another post as well.
