Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC

This Meatpacking District pioneer is now known for its rooftop-pool-lounge playgrounds at two NYC locations (Gansevoort Park Avenue NYC opened in Gramercy/Flatiron in 2010). By day, you can soak up the sun, and the Hudson River panorama, on a lounger by the 45-foot heated open-air pool. After dark, the wraparound terrace bar becomes a deejayed outdoor party with a glittering Manhattan backdrop. If you prefer a quieter night, admire the view through ample glass in your room—many feature contemporary bay windows or mini balconies. When it’s time to turn in, electronic blackout blinds descend at the flip of a switch by your bed. The guest quarters recently received a glam makeover that brought fuchsia, plum and metallic accents, and Studio 54–inspired photography that plays on the hotel’s reputation as a party hub. Plush feather beds atop excellent mattresses and marble bathrooms—stocked with Cutler toiletries—amp up the luxury. Jeffrey Chodorow’s Asian fusion joint, TOY, turns dinner into a spectacle, with sumptuous raw-bar “towers” and burlesque shows most nights. Counteract the damage with a Core Fusion barre class—a workout incorporating ballet, yoga and Pilates—in the subterranean Exhale spa. If that sounds like too much effort, book a signature Flow Massage, which gets in deep to ease tension using a pain-minimizing “wave” technique, then unwind in one of the soaking pools in the candlelit, industrial-style sanctuary. Rooms: 186.

I enjoyed staying at the Gansevoort Meatpacking - the location is amazing, the rooms are luxurious, and the overall feel is young, and maybe trying just a little too hard. The entire service staff, from the concierge and front desk, to doormen, elevator operators, etc. were accommodating and polite which definitely helped me enjoy my stay. There is certainly a lot to do in just the hotel, from the pool table/restaurant in the lobby, to the spa, lounge/pool and club. It felt nice to get to walk in wherever we wanted or reserve entry at the front desk rather than wait outside. The rooms were nice if not a little garish - but I think that's part of the experience. The best part was the location - to go out in the meatpacking district (or the Chelsea market for that matter) and still be so close is the biggest selling point. Overall, it was well worth the splurge, although I don't think it is comparable to similarly priced 'upscale' hotels/resorts - it was clear the Gansevoort Meatpacking caters to a younger 'party-friendly' crowd - so certainly expect loud noises, crowds of the inebriated, etc. It all kind of comes in the same package.
