Meatpacking’s Finest: The Gansevoort

 

Listed as one of the hippest hotels by TripAdvisor, The Gansevoort in the heart of the Meatpacking District puts a new spin on the usual hotel amenities and also offers a great party location at their rooftop lounge.  Decorated with bright, bold colors, Gansevoort New York has tall 9 foot ceilings, iPod docks and flat screen TVs in every guest room. They offer special amenities if you happen to be traveling with kids, pets or babies. Named one of Pet Friendliest Destinations by Animal Fair Magazine, the hotel offers a pet package including their Barking Zoo, complementary treats, toys and an ‘I’m staying at The Gansevoort’ collar.

For their human companions, The Gansevoort doesn’t offer toys, rather the outdoor pool, Mind Body Gym, Wellness Bar, and Exhale Mind Body Spa.  Guests can also relieve stress by visiting the rooftop bar Plunge or the in-house restaurant Carte Blanche — both spots have a hip atmosphere and are known as places to see and be seen in New York.

One of the finest things about this hotel in our opinion is the event options. The hotel has a beautiful and colorful rooftop lounge that offers 360 degree views of New York City and a wonderful setting for weddings, anniversaries and business events.  The Gansevoort was named one of the top ten business hotels by Forbes Magazine because of their executive meeting room and scenic lounge which can be converted from the hotel’s Plunge Restaurant. 

The Gansevoort is a hard name to remember, but they will not forget yours as they personalize all their treats and packages that guests can receive during their stay. The kids are greeted to the hotel with a personalized treat bag, entertained with a Wii console — you can call ahead to receive a prepared list of activities tailored to your child’s age upon arrival.  For new members of your family, the hotel is happy to provide cribs, protective bumpers, diapers and baby bath amenities.

What’s our favorite thing about The Gansevoort? Dut da da DAHH…. The COMPLIMENTARY bike rental service! It is the green way to travel in New York, and is often faster than fighting through the sea of yellow cabs to your destination.  This hotel is listed as luxury and we agree, what do you think?
