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.

The Gansevoort Hotel is in a perfect location. We were able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. This was our first trip back since the craziness of last year. I was initially disappointed with the hotel as we had issues with the temperature in our room and also some plumbing issues. The hotel staff and particularly the managers, Melvin and Laura, were eager to resolve my problems and make sure I had a comfortable stay. I definitely felt like they were concerned about my comfort and that they went above and beyond to make things right for me. While I was disappointed with the problems, the thing I will remember most is the EXCELLENT customer service I received. Read less

So disappointed with our recent stay here. The hotel itself is nice as is the staff. That being said we had a major issue with the AC. No matter how low we set the temperature it would not go below 80 degrees. We had 3 separate calls to the front desk with no solution. Our final call they brought us a dyson fan without the remote so it didn’t even… Read more

Our final call they brought us a dyson fan without the remote so it didn’t even work. At this price point one would expect basic amenities like AC to work. I’ve emailed twice and received no response from the hotel. Unacceptable Read less

The Gansevoort Hotel is in a fantastic location right in the middle of the Meatpacking district with lots of great restaurants and shops nearby. It’s a short walk to Chelsea Market, the Highline, the West Side Highway Park and Little Island. The rooms are a reasonable size for NY city. The hotel just underwent an industrial modern renovation and is updated. The rooftop bar & pool have a great view of the Hudson River and the pool is a nice place to cool off on a hot day. The negatives are ridiculously low water pressure and bath products that smell like Pine Sol. I would recommend asking for a room on a higher floor to avoid hearing music from the street at night.

This hotel is brand new but the staff make it feel like they've been around forever. The front desk team was so friendly (Diego and Erika!) and made a real effort to make us feel special the entire stay. Super attentive and effortlessly kind. The neighborhood is perfect (easy walking distance the Highline, shopping, galleries and museums, great restaurants); the rooms are beautiful (we had a phenomenal view of the Hudson River); super comfy beds and nice linens; and fun technology in the rooms and throughout the hotel (great wireless, chargers, TV and movies, etc.). There are multiple places to eat or grab a drink - each with a different feel so something for everyone (sports bar, cocktail lounge, cafe, etc.). The pool is also great - a real treat to have an outdoor pool in NYC. Maybe a small thing but the whole place smells incredible - the fragrance isn't too strong but is subtly beautiful. This is a nice change from the rest of NYC in the summer and immediately makes you feel relaxed coming off of a busy street. There are lots of subtly wonderful things like this that make the hotel a stand-out, particularly as most of the other hotels in this neighborhood feel dated and a little tired - this reimagined Gansevoort is a wonderful addition.

I moved out of NYC in 2020 (Covid) and have begun coming back regularly for work/life. Stayed at the Gansevoort last week for the first time and it was hands down my best hotel stay yet in New York. Clean, sleek room and amenities were all wonderful and the entire staff is exceptional (particularly the manager Anton, can't say enough about him).… Read more
