“Recent business trip to New York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

My recent stay with the Gansevoort Meatpacking while on business in New York was all good!
Especially Charles and John (at the door). They went out of their way to help while I was in NY........going so far as to have gas brought to my car when I ran out. Ultimately it was more than just helping when we really needed it, it was also the day to day greetings and small things that John and Charles were consistent with, that made our stay really enjoyable.
Sincerely,
Todd

Room Tip: ask where the club is in the hotel and try to stay several floors away.

Service was unremarkable. The room was decent but the furnishings and decor were unappealing to me - maybe I'm too boring to appreciate the "sexy" decor. Just days after visiting (2 night stay), I was struggling to remember one standout thing.

We stayed here in a back in November 2012, Smack in the middle of the meat packing district with fantastic places to eat at anytime of the day on your doorstep. Every member of Staff was smiling and genuinely attentive. It makes a difference when people enjoy their work..
The bar on the top terrace has amazing views. The music is LOUD and the place was rocking every night we stayed.
Really enjoyed our stay thank you..

I stayed for a two-night girls weekend last October and I loved the vibe. The rooms are sleek, modern and vibrant, with just enough edge to feel like you're about to have a great night out in the city.

I stayed in a Grand Deluxe Suite, the room is a bit over 500 square-feet and I highly recommend this room if you're looking for a place to hang without feeling like you're in a NYC closet (like many other hotel rooms in NYC). My room had a balcony, couch, dining table and California-King bed, but the disclaimer is the suites are obviously more expensive- for good reason.

The location is fantastic, the service is impeccable and the rooftop lounge is a great way to end a night out.

Room Tip: Bring your room key to the rooftop lounge and be dressed to impress, the door can be strict with dre...

You have no business here if you are a bunch of thirty something women for a girls weekend. Rooms were small, and music felt throughout the night. Best part for someone like me was waking up early and walking around the neighborhood before anyone else woke up. The front desk is accommodating and friendly. Upon checkin and attempt to valet late night, I got yelled at for having my car in the hotel unloading zone. bc the valet was overwhelmed with clubgoers and cabs. Bottom line- this place is loads of fun if you are in your early 20s. Great location for the hottest clubs within walking distance. Its not for the older crowd.

Dear fivestarNewYork,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us. We are sorry for your less than satisfactory time spent in the Meatpacking District. Due to the nightlife and restaurants surrounding our property, it often becomes raucous during the evenings and we apologize that the level of activity got out of hand for you. Next time you're considering a girls' weekend, we hope that you will check out our Park Avenue location, which is a bit quieter, spacious and slightly more "refined." If you choose to reconsider us for your next visit to NYC, please contact our community manager at digital@hotelgansevoort.com to ensure a stay that is above and beyond your expectations.

Sincerely,

@HotelGansevoort

I stayed two nights at the Gansevoort in January 2013. I loved the loved the location and atmosphere of the lobby, my room, and the amazing rooftop bar and lounge. I was very impressed with the customer service staff during check in, with my room service order, as well as the great doormen! My favorite part about my room was waking up and simply flipping a switch next to the bed to open the window shades, letting in the light and amazing view!

Upon arrival at the Gansevoort we were immediately impressed. A welcoming staff at the door, a happening and beautiful lounge area, and a very helpful front desk staff. We were booked in a queen superior room and asked if it was possible to change to a king superior room. The young lady at the front desk checked the availability and made the switch.

The next day, I went shopping and and my husband went to Exhale Spa for a massage. He said the masseuse was amazing and that he would definitely recommend getting a massage.

The concierge was extremely helpful. They gave us many dinner suggestions in meatpacking and provided a few suggestions outside of the area. They offered to help us make reservations and provided us with the best way to get to our destination.

The room is modern and quite spacious. The bathrooms are beautiful and immaculate. Our room was always cleaned promptly. Our maid saw us come in on Super Bowl Sunday before the game with pizza and 10 minutes later came back with a bucket of ice for our drinks. A very nice touch that we didn't even ask for!

We didn't have the opportunity to spend time at the roof top patio, but we went up to take a look on the day we were leaving. What a beautiful view. Can't wait to come back in the summer and spend some time there!

There was so much to do in meatpacking. Step outside and within a few steps you can find restaurants with delicious food at Pastis, Spice Market, and Catch. The shopping is great too....Tory Burch, Christian Louboutin (men's and women's stores), Hugo Boss, Sephora, just to name a few.

When we checked out Jenny helped us arrange a ride to the airport and we let her know that we frequent New York a few times a year. She offered us a business card and let us know that we can contact her when we plan on coming back. With so many hotel options in New York City, I would say that the personalized service is one way that the Gansevoort is sure to be our NYC go to destination.

Overall a great experience. Thanks to the staff at the Gansevoort.

Dear Lisa,

We are thrilled that you and your husband enjoyed staying with us. We always strive to provide services that are tailored to your needs – the snacks on Sunday seemed only necessary while watching the big game! Hopefully on your next visit you’ll be able to experience our rooftop patio, where you can grab a cocktail, enjoy the NYC skyline view and take a dip in our heated pool (year round). Please don't hesitate to reach out to our community manager at Digital@GansevoortHotelGroup.com with any questions or concerns about future trips. Until then, we thank you again for sharing your experience with us and look forward to your return.
