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.
