Great location, really friendly and attentive staff (shout out to Lauren, thank you). Rooftop swimming pool was a big help for young children during the summer heat to break up the day and it has a lot of family friendly venues nearby. Great experience.

Was in NTC with some clients for a quick trip, and stayed at the Gansevoort Hotel. Great place to stay, staff were very friendly, and an awesome experience. Lauren at the front desk was especially welcoming and helpful with all of our requests. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights 7/11 and 7/12. Both nights were very hot, however we did not experience any AC issues. Hotel is stunning, room is very nicely appointed, spacious for NYC. Everything is neat and has all the basic necessities. Nice bedding. Really beautiful pool on the top floor, check it out in the morning. Next time we stay there I'm bringing my bathing suit. Location cannot be beat - lots of restaurants, shops, attractions within a few blocks. [On the flip side, it is a very clubby area, we stayed on the 10th floor and could hear dance music from the street. Bring earplugs.] Got great customer service from Lauren at the front desk. She was very attentive at check in and check out. I left a couple of items in the room - the hotel shipped the items, and while it took FedEx a few days to get the items to me, Audrey and a few people from Security kept me posted on the status. Great stay all around and we will book this hotel again when we are back in the area. Read less

Nothing quite sets the tone at a hotel than a front desk person who doesn't even look up when you approach to check in.There was no valet person available to help with our car when we arrived, so I ran in to the hotel to try to get someone to help my husband with the car and our luggage.

Nothing quite sets the tone at a hotel than a front desk person who doesn't even look up when you approach to check in.There was no valet person available to help with our car when we arrived, so I ran in to the hotel to try to get someone to help my husband with the car and our luggage. Fortunately, Melvin was at the front desk and stepped up to help, but he had to point out to Marisela at the computer that I was waiting to check in. During our stay, she was never attentive or helpful. Upstairs, the first thing you notice is how dark the halls are. The lighting in the bathroom is poor, too. There were several other small issues with our room: no bathmat the first night, consistently only one espresso cup, though housekeeping knew two people were staying in the room. Even after we called to get a second cup, they didn't make a note that we needed two, so we had to call three out of five days. There is a charge of two dollars per coffee pod, which seems very nickel and dime, especially since the coffee machine is not easy to use and we went through two pods before we learned the idiosyncrasies of the machine.Part of a cleaning rag was left hanging from the mirror and was never removed. Overall, the hotel is in need of updating. I wish I liked the hotel more because I like the location. Read less
