The owners of New York’s Standard Hotel in the Meatpacking district are thinking about selling the property in a deal that could be worth $300 million, according to Crain’s New York Business.The hotel is reportedly being quietly shopped around by Dune Capital Management and Greenfield Partners who control a majority stake in the property.

The Standard, which sits above the High Line park on NYC’s far west side, has been a popular venue for celebrities, nightlife, and foodie culture in NYC since opening in 2009. And its floor-to-ceiling windows, which overlook the High Line, have caused a stir.

Anyone who is thinking of buying the hotel would have a true party mecca on his hands.

The windows are so large in fact that people on the street are able to see up inside the rooms...even into the bathrooms.

Which can lead to some awkward photo ops. The Standard Hotel has been known for its exhibitionist clientele.

The glass-enclosed rooftop patio with green turf grass is another popular destination.
