|Overlooking the waters edge|
I recently stayed in NY at The Standard Hotel in the Meat Packing district. Sounds grimy and gritty, right? No. Diane Von Furstenberg, Hugo Boss, many upscale designers call the area home. It is filled with unbelievably beautiful people and I was surprised. The Concierge told me that it was a haven for models, euro visitors and well heeled US visitors as well. And at prices that are palatable for me, $375 a night for a postage stamp sized room was OK! The larger suites are commensurately more expensive running around $1000 a night.
