Stayed here for two wonderful nights! Location is unbeatable - steps from the Highline, Chelsea Market and the West Village. Outside, they’ve completely renovated the street and sidewalks - it feels like a European square. The hotel was lovely. Awesome check-in experience from Lauren.

My family had a wonderful experience at the Gansevoort this past weekend. Kenya in reservations and Lauren at the front desk offered my family three rooms on the same floor, all with a view of the Hudson. In spite of the on again/off again rain, the view was spectacular. A birthday note, wine and chocolates were waiting for me in the room. All staff were super friendly. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were quiet throughout the night. Loved the rooftop pool which had just re-opened. Water was warm enough for a swim in 45 F degree weather! Only minor complaint is that many items in the room required an extra charge - $2 for a coffee pod, $9 for Fuji water, $9.99 for music on the TV. It seems that a 4 star hotel could afford to offer these amenities at no charge. Read less

My wife booked a room for us at this hotel for a one night NYC getaway from the hustle & bustle of our daily lives in Long Island. Needless to say, we were looking for a nice little getaway. On this occasion, we checked in on a Friday. First thing, we drove, and the hotel offers valet parking. Since we had an SUV, it was $60 for the night. Expensive. What was nice though is that the hotel takes the car for you, because unless you're really lucky, especially on a weekday, there is no parking anywhere nearby. Weekends might be different. If you don't know the area, it is undergoing a massive revitalization and can get packed with trucks & construction vehicles during the week and even on the weekends. Check in was smooth and the staff here is very friendly. We were given a room on the 8th floor facing the Hudson river (the front of the hotel). Lobby area was very cool & modern. Typical of a boutique style hotel. There was a nice bar and even a pool table. The elevators are a bit old and slow, but there are three of them so getting one isn't usually a problem. The hallways are kind of dark as well. The room, like any basic hotel room in Manhattan, isn't massive, but it did have a king sized bed, which is always a must for us. The room also had a nice seating area near the window. You could see a few of the rooftop bars in the area, as well as a view of the river. (more on this in a minute). We did check out the hotel's rooftop bar area. They also are one of the few hotels with a rooftop pool. This is probably the hotel's crown jewel. I thought it was fairly quiet in our room. I could not really hear out neighbors unless somebody shouted, or dropped something heavy. My wife and I are older now, so we don't party till the wee hours of the morning. If you do, then this hotel is definitely for you. The reason I say that is because in the early hours of the morning, around 2am, we woke up to some seriously loud THUMPING music. It almost sounded like it was coming from one of the neighboring rooms, but it wasn't. I couldn't tell if it was coming from one of the rooftop bars across the street or if it was coming from the hotel's own rooftop bar area. I'd be lying if I said it didn't affect our sleep. Eventually, the music died down, around 3am. I'm not sure if getting a room on the other side of the hotel would have made a difference, but it may be something to consider if you're coming here. I still feel like the hotel is very nice with very friendly staff. Another reviewer noted that it appears that everything is for sale in the room, which can be a bit tacky, so be careful what you're consuming. It's all overpriced, of course. Even with all this though, given the location, this is still a great hotel and I would recommend it. Just proceed with caution and understand that it's not perfect, there may be some noise, and it is expensive! Read less
