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.

This is my go-to hotel when visiting New York. Great location, pretty nice rooms, rooftop pool is great, and interesting scene for people watching. The staff have always been fantastic.

My husband and I spent four nights at the Gansevoort. Overall, it was a mixed bag (I wish I could have given it 3.5 stars). First the good - great location, friendly and accommodating staff, gorgeous views from the roof, and cool vibe.

First the good - great location, friendly and accommodating staff, gorgeous views from the roof, and cool vibe. But, the hotel had some issues - A/C wasn’t working properly, housekeeping comes by early (make sure to use the do not disturb door hangar), renovations happening on a big weekend on the terrace ,and too many kids running around the pool and lobby. Overall, a good stay but I’m not sure I’d go back. Read less

The roof top pool was awesome; not a dull moment. We will be making this the only place we stay for our anniversary and many more occasions to come. I would recommend this hotel hands down, the best I have ever stayed at!! Read less

We stayed here one night with friends. We wanted to be close to the highline and shopping. This hotel is perfect. Friendly staff and good location. Very close to many restaurants and the Chelsea Market. The only negative would be that you have to pay for your pods of coffee. The rooms are small, but functional and have everything you may need.

If you want to stay in the meatpacking district this is your spot. The rooftop pool is small, but the bar area is large and a fun place to have a drink at the end of your day and watch the sunset over the Hudson river. Read less

While my room was decent enough (for the 12hrs I was there - hey, bring your showers into this century, too), my complaint is with the back office - it must be laden with some serious ineptitude, given their repeated failure to address financial/invoice issues (which really, is what drives people to return to a property).

While my room was decent enough (for the 12hrs I was there - hey, bring your showers into this century, too), my complaint is with the back office - it must be laden with some serious ineptitude, given their repeated failure to address financial/invoice issues (which really, is what drives people to return to a property). Having a sink clogged, etc., is one thing, but a complete failure to address, or even in the event of improper First, I was never given the opportunity to review my bill by the front desk staff (who were terse and unresponsive at best), and I was told it was being emailed to me - but it never was. I check my Amex and sure enough, charges HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS in excess of what I incurred were charged to me, including multiple meals. I immediately contacted the hotel upon my return home and asked for the invoice (I waited on the line to verify that it was sent - it was). Right there were several charges I did not, and could not have incurred because I wasn't even there. I mentioned this to the woman who provided me the statement and she stated that it be best if I emailed the hotel at the guest billing address provided in the correspondence (which is likely a dummy inbox that's rarely checked) regarding my issue. Well, I did days ago and have heard nothing in response. A follow up note has not been addressed either. I am not sure how any property can purport to be luxury and fail to immediately respond to guest issues. I am not sure how the hotel's GM, Mr. Tremblay (thanks google!) could be part of Les Clefs d’Or USA as service means response. Further, I'd think that the GM of any property, particularly that purports to have such status, would be more than happy to provide their contact info and rectify issues immediately as it's their reputation at issue (even if it's a monitored inbox). But alas, no. So, here I sit. Still overcharged, issues still not addressed. Huge FAIL on their part. Here is a huge tip for you folks from someone who stays in high end hotels 100+ times/year - address customer concerns promptly, provide an email address where concerns can actually be sent to, answer the phone and don't let it always go to VM. Oh, and then actually address the concerns! Read less
