Gansevoort Meatpacking

Chelsea, New York

The hotel

Flaunting 360-degree views of the Big Apple, the Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC is smart, swanky, minimalist and full of sleek and fresh feels. Take the plunge into the rooftop heated pool whilst sipping a cocktail from the Lelie Rooftop bar. Go ultimate in ‘treat yourself’ and have an in-room massage. Watch the sunset fall over the Hudson River. Borrow one of the free bikes and go on an adventure through the urban jungle. Whatever way you spend your time here, you’re bound to feel spoilt rotten after.

I was staying there for business and was out most of the time, so really only used the hotel room and none of the other services. Unfortunately it was way too cold for the pool which had a great view otherwise! Had chosen it mainly for the location and it worked out really well! Rooms are decent, though you can definitely feel you are in a 'party hotel'. Odd, large photographs of men and women stylized everywhere, also in the rooms. Otherwise rooms and bathrooms were perfectly fine. Not much to say otherwise. Read less

I have never done a TA review, and don't like leaving negative reviews of businesses; however, my recent stay here merited me doing so. A couple weekends ago, I had to book a night last-minute for a downtown meeting, and chose the Gansevoort for my stay, based on its proximity to my meeting, and based on the luxe, upmarket brand perception. I just as well could have saved >$100 to stay in a cleaner, better appointed 2-star hotel. Check-in: on arrival, I was turned off by the lobby (dark w/ loud music in that strange way that hotels seem to think is appealing). I approached reception, and made eye contact with the receptionist (who was on the phone). After several minutes, he hadn't made a single gesture towards me (though we had made repeated eye contact and I was standing right in front of him with a suitcase!), nor did any of the other employees who appeared and disappeared. I also noticed how messy the reception desk was, cluttered with personal items and messy papers. My point is that between the total disregard to assisting me in checking in, the appearance of the reception area, and the experience of waiting in the unpleasant lobby for 10 minutes before being checked in, we were not off to a good start. Ambiance: The hallway to the room was SO oppressively dark, w/ loud clubby music, and smelled stale. It actually grossed me out; you cannot convince me that it gets properly cleaned with the lights all the way down. The room - The styling: Dated and tacky decor, furniture w/ visible wear was due for refresh years ago - The shower: As other reviewers have complained, the shower DOES NOT get warm, and I took a very cold shower (which, as a positive, definitely woke me up for my meeting) - The cleanliness: ----I went over to check out my AWESOME view, and found crumbs on the windowsill. ----The carpet was visibly dirty w/ a couple of stained areas (I wished I had slippers) ----The bedding did not look clean (may just be because it is old) ----One of the bathroom drawers had hair in it when I opened it Verdict: I will not be staying here again. I didn't check out the rooftop lounge (which is supposed to be the highlight of the hotel) but I don't feel the need to experience it. There are loads of places to stay in NY. This one is clearly resting on it's incredible location, and former posh reputation, but unless my stay was just a major fluke, I don't see how they will be able to continue attracting new guests.
