The Standard is Ready For You

Photo Credit

It's been a long time in the making, but the Standard NYC is just about ready to welcome you. We say just about because the hotel is making select rooms available to "friends and family" at an introductory rate starting on December 10th, and the place is still a busy construction site.

We are opening a handful of rooms in the midst of an otherwise busy construction site, at rates starting at $195. The price includes complimentary Continental breakfast, complimentary Wi-Fi and local calls, 24 hour concierge service and use of our lobby.

Room service will be available in early 2009. In the interim, guests will receive an in-room binder consisting of our favorite local restaurants which will provide delivery service.

As the hotel is still undergoing construction, these preview rates will be available until February 09. To make your booking, simply call the reservations team at 212 784.5530 or email us at

But hey, $195 for a nice hotel room is a good deal. And the view can't be beat. We suggest you jump on this deal while you still can. Just wear a hard hat.

Gansevoort Hotel 2: Douches with a View.

This monstrosity, sadly, will be Andre Balazs' bĂȘte noire. I heard they were already trying to downplay the Balazs name and Standard brand, in an attempt to distance themselves from the douche mass that will soon be infesting their lobby. Did Mr. Balazs not visit the cesspool that is the meatpacking district on a weekend night before jumping ass-first into it?

People deserve very good life time and loan or just short term loan will make it better. Because freedom is based on money.
