What happened New York? When did you get so nice? Or is it just the Hotel Gansevoort and their incredible staff? Our tremendous experience all started several months ago when fourteen of us decided to invade New York City to properly observe the official passing of what youth I had left for my 50th BIrthday. Megan in reservations was quick to please by kindly offering a very attractive room rate for the seven rooms we booked. She was very expedient with e-mail confirmations and a follow up call. Shortly before our trip, my partner of eleven years decided that it would be a fitting birthday gift if we tied the knot while in the city with our closest friends. Nothing fancy just exchanging of vows. I called the Gansevoort to inquire about venues in the hotel for a very informal ceremony. Once again, they amazed us. Jenny at the front desk was extremely nice and suggested we think about the roof top loft. She helped us by suggesting the right time of day to avoid the crowds at the adjacent Plunge Roof Top Bar and by coordinating with the hotel and Plunge staff.
When we arrived at The Gansevoort, Jenny was there to greet us. Not only did she upgrade my partner and me to a wonderful room, but all of our friends as well. The hotel staff was attentive throughout our four day stay. Joel and his staff at Plunge and the Roof Top Loft went above and beyond the call of duty to make our vow exchange very memorable.
If the incredible staff were not enough, The Gansevoort has some of the largest rooms in NYC. They are funky and fun, and full of little extras, like the house made CD that is playing in your room when you arrive. Also, the hotel location cannot be beat. The Meatpacking district is one crazy area. You can walk to many of the hottest restaurants (Spice Market, Abe & Arthur's, Buddakan, Crispo, Pastis) and the Chelsea Market is one black away.
Watch out Hotel Gansevoort, you might just give New York City a nice reputation!!
