If you’re looking for the epitome of Manhattan chic, boutique, and beautiful, there can only be one: the Gansevoort Park Avenue—the six-year-old sister hotel to the other Gansevoort located in the Meatpacking District. Found at the southwest corner of 29th Street off Park Avenue South, the modern lobby greets you in a bevy of blacks, maroons and browns: tall columns, high ceilings, two massive purple crystal chandeliers and a black-and-white zig-zag pattern on the floor. A horizontal gas-lit fireplace sits at the back end of the sitting area, which is decked out in plush couches and chairs. Immediately you feel like you’re in good hands. With a plethora of doormen and attentive staff behind the front desk, there’s no shortage of personal attention paid to every guest that walks through the revolving doors.

The rooms are perfect for that weekend staycation or quick business trip; clean touches abound. Muted grays off-set the photography on the walls, giving the minimal décor a splash of vibrant color. The main draws of the hotel—and there are many—are the three levels of fun on top: six event spaces and terraces, lounges with fireplaces, and a heated indoor-outdoor pool with unobstructed views of the Empire State Building. It might have been winter when I visited, but I could only imagine how these top floors look in the warmer weather. Other hotel perks include a Lacoste store, a Flywheels Sports to get your gym on, an Exhale Spa for, well, getting your spa on, and Asellina, a sleek, 10,000-square-foot Italian eatery from the One Group (STK), coated in numerous shades of browns, wood décor throughout the space and a giant copper-colored wall covering made up entirely of bottle caps.
 
Since the hotel sits on the eastern-most part of NoMad, it’s easily accessible via mass transit with a 6 train one block away on 28th Street and Park; the R and W trains on 28th and Broadway two blocks west; and for those adventurous enough to drive in you can grab the Midtown (Queens, Brooklyn, Long Island) and Lincoln (New Jersey) Tunnels on each end of 34th Street. Madison Square Park (which has the first ever Shake Shack location) and the Flatiron Building are just a few blocks away and the hotel is a leisurely stroll to Union Square.
 
TIME OUT TIP: Given its location, you are in walking distance to a number of cool eateries and shops. Check out the The Cannibal on 29th between Park and Lexington Avenues, a Belgian gastropub with a tremendous beer list from the Resto guys; or Blue Smoke (26th between Park and Lexington), Danny Meyer’s ode to BBQ that also features a jazz club. (Try the Pit Stop, which is one meat and two sides.) For the fashionista, head on over to Dover Street Market on Lexington and 30th Street and enjoy the showcase of fashion-forward brands like Balenciaga and Commes des Garçons.

Gansevoort Park Rooftop is always a great time. I went there two weeks ago again and it was incredible. It's an awesome venue to go out and take your friends to. Before going out I have been getting in touch with Indi from Joonbug, who is super nice. My friends and I get to skip the line and have free drinks all night. Using Joonbug makes planning nights run smoothly and always end up being a great time. I highly suggest using them! Joonbug: 212.255.4223

I visited Gansevoort Hotel for a work awards ceremony and dinner.  It was really cool!  We had the rooftop area that was made up of three rooms -- one was a main bar as soon as you got off the elevator, the other was for the awards ceremony, and the other for dancing!  We had a buffet spread, which consisted of roasted chicken and beef options.  The DJ was great and the view was so cool.  I recommend taking a panoramic shot.  The wait staff was super attentive and helpful.  I’d definitely like to back and visit this place on a regular night for an event that’s not work related.

This hotel has a crazy rooftop where they organize brunches and parties, i went there last week end with one promoter called Indi Romero that I highly recommend. He let us cut the line and we had free drinks all night long! Thanks Indi!

Great place. Had a great time there with my friends. I decided as well to contact Joonbug. Indi took care of us. I highly recommend contacting him (on Facebook his name is Indi Romero), He will make your night so much easier. You don’t want to count all week on going to a place and then get rejected at the door... and they make sure this doesn’t happen.

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.
