One of the most popular attractions to open in Manhattan in the last few years, the High Line park runs atop elevated rail tracks through the splayed legs of the chic Standard Hotel, where rates this summer are $200 less than surrounding dates.
Visit Fridays-Sundays July-August for $325-$345 per night in a room with an oversized tub and bed draped with Italian linens.
"An architectural tour de force" (The New York Times) with a skin of all windows, the hotel offers a sprawling view across the Hudson River and over the High Line gardens, which will be ripe with blooms.
A Biergarten downstairs fills with revelers on weekends, who also browse the windows of the cutting-edge fashion shops that line the streets of the surrounding Meatpacking District.
