High Line hotel staff insists free peepshow a rule, not exception

New York, Aug 26 (ANI): The staff at The Standard hotel in the Meatpacking District insists that they too get involved in indecent acts in front of the ceiling-to-door windows to draw attention to the hotel.

The raunchy hotel has attracted fury of neighbours and people coming to the High Line urban park opposite it.

The staff insists that's the rule- not the exception.

"We don't discourage it. In actual fact, we encourage it," the New York Post quoted a friendly bellhop as saying.

After the hotel opened late last year, the bellhop said, naked and semidressed staff members were encouraged to pose in front of the windows.

He said the point was to create a buzz with the unexpected peep show.

"One of the managers even got naked in a room, and filmed it -- they were considering a live feed for the Web site. She's an exhibitionist too," the staffer said.

City Council Speaker Christine Quinn has warned The Standard to tone down the sexcapades.

The hotel's management responded by saying it would make "a concerted effort to remind guests of the transparency of the guest room windows."

However, there was no "reminder" when reporters checked into a room.

The only warning to guests was a letter, left in the room, from manager Ian Nicholson- and outlining the month's window-washing schedule. (ANI)
