The Standard High Line of course.

The hotel's resident "guest," Stan D'Arde, blogged about meeting Queen B in the hallway (or so he says) while she was shooting the music video. Here's how the imaginary meet-up went down:

A few weeks back after a long night at The Top of The Standard, I was heading down to my room to see what was left in my mini-bar and maybe try to get some sleep. When I turned the corner from the elevator bank, I came face to face with Beyoncé and a camera crew…

ME: “Hey, B!”
B: “Hey, Boo!”
ME: “What are you doing?”
B: “Shooting a music video.”
ME: “You never told me.”
B: “I know!”
ME: “Carry on, B. Carry on.”

The whole thing seemed very mysterious, but I trusted her.

That music video turned out to be "Rocket" one of 17 videos she dropped suddenly last night along with her new album, titled, "Beyoncé." Of course. Now, if only we could get other Standard guests to replicate the Beyoncé pose during their stay….cue viral internet meme sensation in 5, 4, 3, 2….

The other month we teased you with a snapshot of the antique custom embossers found on the desk at the new 60-room High Line Hotel in Manhattan. Today, we've got the full monty and it's a beauty.

Here are some snapshots from inside a High Line Suite which is meant to evoke a "a romantic and eclectic 19th century guest house with a separate tranquil sitting area." These rooms also have a king bed, one-of-kind furniture from throughout the U.S. large windows (with black-out shades), bathrobes and slippers and our fave, free WiFi. These rooms also overlook the Close, a private garden open only to hotel guests.
