“Perfect Business Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

Courteous staff, great location, nice rooms. The location is perfect for quick subway travel uptown or downtown. Nice restaurant off lobby. Fairly quiet lobby. Good-sized rooms, very attractive and comfortable with great bathrooms. I recommend for any type of traveler. High-end artistic types (musicians, models, chefs) seem to flock there.

Room Tip: If you have AT&T, stay on the Park Ave. side; but it's quieter on the other side.

Dear dougiem59,

Thank you for the wonderful review. We’re thrilled you enjoyed everything, from our prime location to our sizable guest rooms. Hopefully you had the chance to check out our rooftop lounge for panoramic city views and delectable signature cocktails. You can sit back, relax and indulge in a refreshing drink beneath the majestic Empire State Building. We hope you visit us again soon!

Sincerely,

Gansevoort Park

I stayed here with two friends for a long weekend. The lobby has beautiful modern furniture with a lovely fireplace. Just around the corner from the lobby (connected) is a full service restaurant (very nice and hip) and around the other side, connected, is a full service bar and lounge. On the two top floors are bars (3 or 4 in all). The outdoor pool and lounge is very nice. You don't find too many of those in NY! Our room had two double beds and was plenty spacious. The bathroom was great!! Tons of storage shelves and cabinets and the shower was so nice that none of us wanted to end our shower. The water pressure was great. The room had a fully stocked bar and then some! The staff came by to ask if we needed ice early in the evening. I suppose lots of people enjoy cocktails before they go out. Nice touch. Late evening the bars on the top levels really get rocking. They have bouncers and elevator operators to keep the crowds in check. There is a special elevator used late night for that crowd. Rest assured, if that is not your scene you will not even know it is going on, as it is separate from the main lobby. Now, one thing you must do is get a massage at the Exhale Spa (located on the 3rd floor). It was, by far, the BEST massage my friends and I have ever had. That's saying a lot, because we've traveled to many places to have massages and we were all blown away. I will definitely return!

Room Tip: We had room that was on the 5th floor and sort of close to the corner of the street and it was noisy...

From the moment we walked through the door, we were pleased with our choice of hotel. The entire staff was immensely helpful, courteous and friendly, and although I arrived very early on my check in day, I was accommodated and an amazing room was found for me! The room was large, comfortable and very clean. The bathroom is contemporary and the robes were plush. The location was just the right distance from uptown and downtown- and only a block from the subway. The rooms need more light in the sitting area, hallway and bathroom. We travel to NYC several times a year, and I am looking forward to going back.

Staying at GPNYC will make you feel young!! The staff is friendly cheerful and helpful!! The guest rooms are tasteful and spacious! Bathrooms are well appointed. Sometimes the best value for the price. The towels need replacing and the lighting in the bathroom and hallway needs to be updated. Hopefully this will be done soon!

I was a little skeptical about the hotel package I purchased from Orbitz... BUT, I was very pleased. The staff is very friendly from the time you get out of the cab. I was very impressed how courteous the staff was, no matter what time we returned to the hotel, there was always someone there to greet you and get you the next elevator. The room was very cute, the bed was fantasticlly comfortable! I really liked the location of the hotel, it was close to the subway and the Empire State Building. The hotel was far enough away from the tourist area, it was perfect.
I cannot say enough about the staff, everyone was so nice and helpful. I will be coming back to this hotel next year for another awesome experiance.

Dear Danielle C,

Thank you for the wonderful review. We’re thrilled you thoroughly enjoyed your time with us and will pass along your sentiments to our dedicated team. We want each and every guest to have a special experience and we’re glad your stay was one to remember. Next time, check out some of the renowned cuisine located in the nearby Flatiron District. Try Craft for fresh farm-to-table food. Their menu changes seasonly – the pumpkin agnolotti is an autumn favorite. We hope you make it back to the Big Apple soon!

Nice enough hotel. The room was very attractive and the staff helpful and professional. However, the lack of light in the room was a major drawback, especially in the evening. For example, there was a couch in the room, but as soon as the sun went down reading on the couch was out of the question. The desk lighting was dim. The lighting on the bathroom counter was not really enough for applying make-up. If you stay at this hotel, bring your own lamps.
