“Meatpacking”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

All in all it was a good trip. Centrally located to all the nightlife in manhattan. Friendly staff. Rooms are a bit small. They made us wait until 3pm to check in even though we had just came in from a red eye. Very expensive to stay here. Everyone expects a tip immediately. I would only stay here again because my girl likes it.

Stayed at the HG for Christmas from the 22 to 28 December. This was out first time staying in the meatpacking. It is quite a distance from Midtown and the rest of the tourist NYC attractions but was nice to be out of the way and living in the 'village' for a little while.

There are some great bars around here such as the Turks and Frogs and the Left Bank so the village is worth exploring

We were hoping to check in on our arrival at 2pm but unfortunately the room was not ready until 3pm, this was fine as check in is from there and the staff at HG did everything they could to try and get the room ready before 3 so we could change and get to our reservation but it was not to be.

We went up to the rooftop pool bar on the staffs recommendation. I have to say this was the one and only time we did go up there. It is used every night for parties and for the hip NYC people to meet and have drinks, and we presume to hold pool parties in the summer. For this reason the room was not in its best state and could have done with a few licks of paint and new furniture which has obvs been mistreated by party goers to the HG over the years. It was also cold and expensive (even though the champagne came in plastic glasses). We arrived with another couple who felt the same, after 1 drink both couples left to go to the lobby bar which was a lot warmer and better kept. Saying that, the white painted wall opposite the bar could have also done with a topcoat, just little touches which are noticeable but easy to rectify.

Because we didn't get to our room until after our reservation the sight of the rooftop bar did worry us that the hotel suite would be the same. However we shoulnd't have worried as it was nice and spacious. We had a bedroom, 2 bathrooms and a living room with a TV which was more than enough space for the 2 of us. All of the rooms were nicely decorated - there were a few random full length photos of models in the room, some of which felt as though they were looking at you which was a bit creepy. Aside from this is was decorated well. Loved the additional wardrobes. The bathroom glass was cracked in the corner - just another thing that could have been fixed beforehand.

The mini bar and mini sweetie store in the room is very cute - until you see the prices, they were quite exceptional! A 1/4 bottle of champagne was $50 which is a tad steep. There are so many drugstores in the area don't be tempted to use the mini bar or eat the sweets and crisps!

The only time we ate in the hotel was room service. It arrived both times within 20 minutes and the portions were huge! Just be careful again with the prices as they seem reasonable on the menu but then there is an additional tax and delivery charge of $5 extra on top, so the price looks attractive but is not a true reflection of what you will pay.

On Christmas Day we spend a couple of hours in the Lobby Bar. The bar tender was very entertaining and kept his bar lovely and tidy - recommend you go and see him!!

Everyone in the hotel was nice and friendly, the doormen remember you and there is usually someone on the lift who calls the lift down for you when you walk through the door.

Overall we had a fab time in the HG. I had heard that it was quite noisy and the disco was too loud into the early hours but we heard none of this. We had a very relaxing peaceful stay.

Thanks HG for your kind service and pleasant stay. Will come back to try the HG Park Ave soon!

Room Tip: The suite was very good value - very spacious - would recommend.

Dear PinkPr1ncess,


Thank you for taking the time to write such an extensive review. It is with the help of our guest reviews that we are able to continuously improve our hotel, and we appreciate all of the insight you have offered. Next time you stay with us we insist coming to our roof more than once, as our pool is heated year round. Perhaps a relaxing dip will be even more entertaining than a cocktail. We can’t wait for you to test out our Park Avenue hotel. We are sure you will be just as impressed with your stay as you were with the Gansevoort Meatpacking. Please do not hesitate to contact our Community Manager for any future reservations at Digital@hotelgansevoort.com. We look forward to your return.

Regards,


@HotelGansevoort

Everything about The Gansvoort Hotel was great. Best location in Manhattan, great service, very nice room, cool rooftop bar and friendly staff. I will recommend it to everyone. The Meatpacking District is the best place to live at and The Gansvoort Hotel couldn't be a better choice if you ask me.

Last weekend my family and I decided to go to New York City for one night to see the Christmas tree and have dinner and see all the great store displays. We decided to stay at Hotel Gansevoort in the Meatpacking since it was away from all the crowd. The staff at the hotel were wonderful....our check in was very efficient and fast. The room was gorgeous, very trendy and stylish, our kids loved it. We received champaign and cup cakes half hour after arriving!

The next day we had breakfast in room and it was delicious. I would recommend this hotel to all my friends and family. Very kids friendly!!! Looking forward to our next visit!

Dear paddy a,

Thank you for choosing us as your “stay-cation” hotel. It is wonderful to know your experience with us was nothing short of a good time. Next time you decide to come into the city bring some bathing suits for the kids, as we keep our pools heated year round. If you need to make a reservation in the future, please feel free to contact our Community Manager at Digital@hotelgansevoort.com. We look forward to welcoming you back to our property sometime soon.

We came to New York for a third visit to see our daughter who is interning here for a year - it was by far our best visit, helped enormously by the hotel and the area of New York it is situated.

I was not expecting too much with regard to New York friendliness or standards - it can be a harsh city. However, we were very satisfied with the Hotel Gansevoort and it's staff. It's quite a "party" hotel and the rooms are equipped and furnished to comply. The large portrait photographs on the bedroom Walls were a bit shocking when you first wake up but you soon got used to them. The rooms were serviced twice day with a turn down service at night and our room had full length French windows with a good view.

The best view however was from the outdoor pool on the top floor. Absolutely stunning view across the Hudson toward Hoboken and in the opposite direction looking at the Chrysler building.

When you walk out the hotel doors, the staff were extremely friendly offering to get you cabs whenever you needed. However within a short walk you find yourself in Greenwich Village which is one of my favourite areas. I could wander through Greenwich Village continuously with it's quaint bookshops and cute stores, delicious restaurants and delis. You can reach some of the most well known areas of New York though with much ease and yet easily escape back to this very fashionable district at the end of the day.

Surrounding the outside pool is the Plunge rooftop lounge and bar which got very busy and vibrant some evenings which was lovely. I believe it's one of "the places" to go if you're not resident.

All in all a delightful trip, peppered with some out of the way places to go and all helped by this very lovely and vibrant ( which you can dip in and out of) hotel and area.
