Can You Really Get at Room at the Standard NYC for $195 a Night?
Yes. We know. We saw the banging Standard NYC ad yesterday. We talked about it in our review if you didn't catch it. We think it's a clever way to advertise low rates during the construction period and at the same time, let people think that sexy people are getting laid at this hotel. It's a great ad for 20-year-olds with money to spend and 40-year-olds who either want to be 20-years-old again or just to bring those youngsters back to the voyeur-licious room.
Yet our eyes were more drawn to the opening rates of $195 in the ad. We couldn't get this rate for our room earlier this week. A hotel rep has assured us those rates are still being offered. And he was right.
We found a room for this weekend--Friday and Saturday--for $195 a night. That's for a standard queen room which is just like the one we stayed in. The rates obviously fluctuate a bit depending on the night but if you are unable to get the opening rate, just say that the "nice construction lady" promised you one.
