Someone is Suing The Standard NYC for Being Too Sexy
Someone thinks this is too sexy. We know.
Hottie hotelier Andre Balazs might find it hard to believe but there is actually someone out there who does not want to stay at his hotel.
Remember that bizarre case over last year where a housekeeper at The Standard NYC accused a guest of forcing himself on her? Well, the guest was acquitted of all charges (he claims the housekeeper told the lie to defend herself after he caught her rifling through his things) but the guest is now blaming the hotel's sexy attitude for the whole thing. The NY Post reports:
An Australian businessman acquitted of trying to rape a maid at The Standard is suing the Meatpacking District boutique hotel for $10 million -- charging that its racy atmosphere contributed to the false charges against him.
Matthew Moorhouse, 42, allegedly attacked the maid when she went to clean his room last Nov. 9.
He claimed she lied after he caught her rifling through his bag. He was acquitted in July.
The hotel's floor-to-ceiling windows are well known for allowing nude guests to put on a show for passers-by in nearby High Line Park.
But it's not just the nude guest in the windows that could come into play in court. Remember those risque soft-opening (heh) ads? What about all those nude photoshoots too?
Not that we really think this guest has much of a chance in court, let alone an award of $10 million, but let's just say that compiling a list of the sexy ways of the Standard would not be hard (heh.) At all.
