I am a young university professor who stayed at the Hotel Gansevoort (Meatpacking District) last month for a wedding. Someone in the hotel room next to ours was very violently assaulted (see pictures as posted on your Yelp and Facebook pages); the hotel tried to cover everything up and not call the police after we reported the incident via the pictures we encountered. There were absolutely disgusting, freshly smelling blood stains-just like a murder scene-on the walls in the hallway next to our room shortly after a man, apparently our hotel neighbor, was harshly escorted from their rooftop nightclub. Apparently, the scuffle involved a "high class" lady and her sugar daddy. The hotel came running out with bleach to clean up the walls but the hotel reported nothing and begged us to merely report it is a “noise disturbance”. Disgusting! Absolutely appalled! We have been trying to get a full refund for our room as per the horrendous nature of what occurred next door but nothing has been done. Also, there was a $2000 charge on my credit card after our stay, NONE of which should have been there. I am STILL fighting to get it removed and will soon be taking matters up via a credit card dispute. The hotel also charged us for calling their hotel to report the blood stains and will not give us our money back for the darn call.

The Gansevoort brought the tri-level rooftop pool-lounge-playground concept that's been making waves at its Meatpacking District property since 2004 to its newer Gramercy address. Get cozy on a double lounger by the rooftop pool (a glassed-in area is kept at a balmy 85 degrees during the chillier months), then swim through the bath-temperature water to an open view of the Empire State Building. When it's time for a cocktail, choose from one of four lounges—the Red Room has padded plum satin walls and floating banquettes topped with mini dance floors where you can live out your go-go-dancer fantasies (DJs preside over the space Friday and Saturday nights). The sleek rooms feature modern metal four-posters or silver satin headboards, plush sofas and saucy retro images by British photographer Deborah Anderson.
