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.

Overall, I'd stay again, but here are the pluses and minuses: Pluses:  +Great location for Chelsea Market, High Line, and businesses in the area; very walkable and relatively easy for taking the train. + Super clean room +For having a busy street nearby and for having a dance club below, I was really pleased with how quiet it was in my room on the 9th floor. +I had a room directly next to the elevator and couldn't hear it at all. +The hot water in the shower was nearly immediate, which was impressive for it being cold out and me being on the 9th floor. +Nice staff at check-in and check-out. +And housekeeping delivered an electric kettle for me to have tea instead of the fancy in-room coffee maker. Minuses:  -The room was a bit small, but I think that's par for the course in Manhattan.  -I was a little weirded out by the larger-than-life and slightly racy photo mural next to the bed. -I visited in November and found that the pool wasn't open in the morning as early (7 am) as advertised. -The gym is quite small (2 treadmills, 2 peleton bikes, 2 elliptical machines--one broken, and some weights) and very stuffy in the basement. But better than no gym! -And the bathroom had no fan. Read less

We just checked in this evening and I wish we were leaving already. We had reserved a queen room but were given a double. (We didn’t notice until we got in the bed). When we called down to the front desk, the woman assured us it was in fact a queen bed. We also let her know the room was extremely hot and hadn’t cooled down at all since we checked… Read more
We just checked in this evening and I wish we were leaving already. We had reserved a queen room but were given a double. (We didn’t notice until we got in the bed). When we called down to the front desk, the woman assured us it was in fact a queen bed. We also let her know the room was extremely hot and hadn’t cooled down at all since we checked in two hours ago. She let us know that they actually have an old system and that the AC doesn’t work once they have switched the building to heat for the season, so we would just need to turn it off and wait. Wait for the room (which is still 76 degrees two hours later) to cool off? So now we have the window open as we wait for the room to cool down enough to sleep. If you don’t have AC, you may want to not have the heat turned up to 76 in rooms after flipping them for the next guest. Not only was the woman not helpful but she was also rude. Awful customer service experience. Tons of great hotels here, so be sure to avoid this one. I know we wish we had! Read less

Perfect location, nice room. The best part of the visit was the exceptional front desk service. A big shout out to Melvin and his manager for being so helpful and kind to my friends and I! See you next year.

Coffee, who charges for in room coffee? $2 each? The drilling and hammering started in the room above me at 10 am, delightful. The evening front desk was very pleasant and accommodating. The morning front desk never inquired about my stay, probably didn't want to hear my answer. No doorman, well maybe there are, they just don't open the door… Read more
Coffee, who charges for in room coffee? $2 each? The drilling and hammering started in the room above me at 10 am, delightful. The evening front desk was very pleasant and accommodating. The morning front desk never inquired about my stay, probably didn't want to hear my answer. No doorman, well maybe there are, they just don't open the door for you. Good location, average room. If the staff would have been a little more personable it would have made a positive difference. I don't think I will go back. Read less

Perfect Hotel and location for the occasion. We loved the rooms, they were perfect, especially the full length mirror! The Hotel staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating from the second we pulled up until the second we pulled away. This was a girls 40th birthday celebration and I had been in contact with Lauren prior to arrival. It was so nice to deal with someone so accommodating, helpful and friendly. Lauren assisted with all of my needs and requests to make the event perfect. Not only did Lauren help with preparing the room prior to arrival, she assisted with excellent recommendations for dinner, after dinner venues and brunch. In addition, Lauren checked in with us during and at the end of our stay to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. If i ever need to book a hotel in the city again, I would not hesitate to book the Gansevoort!!! It is such a pleasure to have received such amazing service! Read less
