Ice Skating in NYC at the Standard Hotel New York

Skaters enjoying the Standard Hotel's ice skating rink in Manhattan's Meatpacking District.

We have mixed feelings about the Standard Hotel, located smack in the middle of the Meatpacking District. Yes, the Standard Hotel and its New York hot spots–bars, clubs, restaurants, roof decks, beer gardens, etc.–tend to attract the sort of wannabe high-rolling party-people that can make the neighborhood insufferable at times. But we do love the architecture and design of the place; and it is nicely integrated with the High Line, one of our favorite destinations in the city; and, honestly, every time we've patronized one of the Standard's establishments–notably the roof deck bar and creperie, as well as the namesake Standard Grill–the staff couldn't have been more warm and welcoming. And now, another example: the Standard Hotel Ice Skating Rink, heading into the stretch run of its second season, and where we went, and kind of had a blast, for the first time just last week.
