“Not just for couples”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

This was our fifth visit to the Gansevoort Hotel and we can't imagine going anywhere else! My daughters and I arrived early in the morning and were surprised and delighted that our room was ready for us. As we had requested, we had a river view and new for us, a balcony! Even though it was winter (by the calendar), we kept our balcony door open for most of our visit. This was our first winter visit and we were excited to try out the pool. We were disappointed the first night that the pool had closed early but they did try to accommodate us (unsuccessfully) so we were sure to swim earlier the next day.

The hotel is very close to the High Line and good restaurants and it is easy to take the subway all over the city. The staff was wonderful but our favorite was John Dzakpa, the doorman, who was engaging, personable and helpful in remembering us and getting our car to us in an expedient manner.

We'd recommend it to everyone but don't want it to get so popular that there is no room for us on a return visit!

Room Tip: We prefer the river view.

This hotel is located in an amazing section of New York called the Meatpacking District. It is a gateway to so many other areas by walking or the E subway uptown. Then there is the Highline right out the door. What made this stay the best was the person that checked us in at the front desk. I suggest you ask for him when you check in. Chris Richardson. I gave him some information on the special reason why we were staying as well as some other friends of ours and he took full control of our rooms, and activities. This all during a major snow storm!! Chris i can't thank you enough for the amazing room and stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the River.

Stayed for 2 nights with my wife. Great hip hotel, hip location away from hustle bustle of midtown shopping but $12 cab ride / 2 stop subway from penn station (Madison square garden). Special consideration for Chris Richardson at the front desk, chris helped considerably to organise our shopping trip to Soho and general planning around NYC. thanks Chris!

My boyfriend and I came here for a night to celebrate our anniversary and had the best time-Chris R at the front desk was super friendly and welcoming and helped us get a great room! We'll definitely come again and recommend to out of towners.

We had a wonderful stay at the Gansevoort in NYC. The hotel is in the heart of the trendy meat-packing district, surrounded by cobblestone streets and creative restaurants. The hotel itself is tastefully done: modern, yet comfortable. The rooms were spacious, and offered a great view of the snowy city.

The staff at the hotel was excellent, from the front desk clerk to the concierge, who graciously printed theater tickets from StubHub. I was particularly impressed by Chris Richardson, who welcomed us, offered a number of tips for things to do in the city, and embodied the highest standard of customer service.

I look forward to staying at this hotel again on my next trip, and am happy to recommend it to anyone traveling to Manhattan.

Loved this hotel. Booking process was slick and seamless thanks to Talia. Check in was quick. Loved the vibe and stylish feel of the hotel. Location sensational. The concierge and front door team are what stood out for me (especially Raoul). Always smiling rain or shine and there to open the door, help with umbrellas, get a cab and help with directions and local recommendations. Room was on 6th floor and spotlessly clean. Beds and linen heavenly. With only one exception the staff were all so accommodating.....the male reception person on check out seemed to be very disinterested and was very arrogant.

However there were a few things in the service department that need tightening up. Firstly, a mug of hot water took 30 mins to arrive from in room dining and of the 3 times we ordered mugs of hot water for tea with milk and sugar, twice the sugar was forgotten and once we got honey not milk! A little bit more care is required in my opinion.

Dodgy electrics meant the hair dryer and irons didn't work in our rooms (we thought the appliances were faulty but we later realized it was actually the electrics) which was frustrating and a bit of a worry.

In general a great hotel but very expensive and the extras added up (2 mugs of hot water for us to add our own tea bags were $20 - why not provide a kettle and or coffee machine in rooms?)

A few tweaks and this place would be 5 stars. Please thank the door team for being the highlight of our stay.

Room Tip: 6th floor was good for views and quietness.
