Definitely a cut below the Gansevoort and Standard. The rooftop lounge was supposed to be exclusive, especially because hotel guests must arrive by 9:30 to guarantee entrance, but on Friday night, June 28th, the crowd was weak, the house was straight from Jock Jams, and the hip hop might as well been promoted as KIIS FM. On the plus side, the lobby is awesome, the concierge is knowledgeable (but cannot help with guest lists at all), and the location is perfect if you want to be close to Meatpacking.
