Cooper Square Hotel To Officially Become Standard East

It was confirmed some weeks back that Hotelier Andre Balazs was closing on the Cooper Square Hotel for $90 million.  But just today, the hotel’s website proudly proclaimed “WE ARE VERY PROUD TO ANNOUNCE THE 5TH ADDITION TO OUR STANDARD FAMILY WITH THE STANDARD, EAST VILLAGE!

According to the website, they’ll be remodeling the place over the course of the next year, turning it into a 145 room hotel.  But a word from the source on the Hotel’s atmosphere: “Don’t get too excited though! Unlike The Standard, New York, this East side counterpart, located on the corner of East 5th Street and Bowery at Cooper Square, is going to be a more mellow alternative to all the boom in your West side room.”
