3. The Jane:
The Jane's popularity might come as a surprise to those familiar with its itty-bitty $99 rooms and shared, down-the-hall bathrooms, but this hotel on West Side Highway makes our list simply for the celeb-spotting and schmoozing that goes on at its bar. It's actually the former ballroom, and it's furnished with a whole amalgamation of collected oddities from hotelier Sean MacPherson. Cynthia Rowley held her fashion show here last season, but this time around it's the location for the after-party after the after-party.
2. The W Union Square:
You won't find any parties or runway shows here, but you will hear the town cars being orders up by guests to get to these events. W Hotels are a huge sponsor of New York Fashion Week, and have hosted a backstage lounge in the tents at Bryant Park for the past several seasons. Ask you concierge for access, and you could be chilling with B-list celebs like Amanda Bynes and Solange Knowles in no time, not to mention noshing on Pop Burger sliders.
1. The Standard, duh:
There's no competition here, what with the opening of the Standard Grill restaurants and the hotel's proximity to the Meatpacking District events of Fashion's Night Out tonight. In the lobby and in line for their table, you might run across the like of Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Gwen Stefani, and Elle Creative Director, Joe Zee.
