The former Cooper Square Hotel in New York City is now officially being called The Standard, East Village, following American hotelier Andre Balazs’ purchase of the property in December. The Standard, East Village, is a sister property to Balazs’ buzzy Meatpacking District property, also called The Standard, as well as other Standard hotels in Los Angeles and Miami.

Over the next year, the Standard, East Village, will have its public spaces renovated to bring its look-and-feel in line with the Standard brand. A new restaurant is expected to open later this year. In the interim, a limited menu is offered in its bar and lounge areas.

The Standard, East Village, features 145 rooms and suites that come with with free Wi-Fi. Recent rates started at $225/night.
