I've stayed a few times since the Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC opened its doors in 2004 and on each occasion I leave wondering when I’ll next be back. The first time I checked in I found myself sharing a lift with Leonardo DiCaprio – I was as smitten with the hotel as I was with him.
The Gansevoort offers a swanky lobby complete with a pool table and bar, reception staff are friendly helpful and beautiful. Service has been impeccable on each and every stay. The rooms have been transformed over the years from muted beiges and purples to a colour modern look and feel that has kept it in keeping with the one of the most popular hotels amongst the jet set crowd.
On the roof you’ll find a 45-foot heated outdoor rooftop pool complete with some of the best vistas off the Hudson River NYC has to offer. While you are up there stop at the Plunge Rooftop Bar + Lounge, it is still one of the best places for drinks al fresco.
Rooms are luxurious and come with all mod cons that you’d expect from a high end hotel, if you need pampering there is a spa on site and you'll find a choice of restaurants that all serve some great cocktails. This is the where the cool crowd stay. We love it.
