“Built of Sheetrock”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2011

Friends of mine recommended this hotel on Park Avenue South .... They still are my friends.... But barely so.

Upon entering the hotel I realized that this is not my place. Colored Swarovski chandeliers adorning the ceiling and an eclectic.... Or out f place selection of uncomfortable , but arguably cool furniture in the lobby ,this place looks like an attempt to design a hip hotel has gone horribly wrong.

The place s built on the cheap, the elevators resemble freight elevators and the entire hotel is so noisy that one wonders how cheap can one build before the building collapses.

The walls in the hallways and separating guest rooms are Sheetrock ,so beware if you want a quiet night of sleep. The rooms, though spacious are equally noisy,the beds, while comfortable have smelly pillows. The Minibar..... Well... A highlight, never seen a bar as well stocked as this.from several intimacy kits to champagne and vodkas in decent bottles and plenty of snacks. Clearly a party hotel and with the rooftop bar and people lining up on the street this s a place for the thirty something..... But not for me.

Gansevoort Park Avenue has a cool vibe the minute you walk through the doors. The staff is helpful when asked but not overly attentive. The rooms are average size but stylish like the rest of the hotel. My only complaint was no in room coffee or tea, and then when we ordered room service our coffee didn't come with cream or sugar- make sure you ask with you order. Beds are exceptional- almost as good as mine from home. Bathroom is nice and roomy if two people need to get ready at the same time. The concierge recommended a fabulous restaurant called Pastis that we loved in the meat packing district.

This hotel was not only beautiful, it also had great service! Beds were SO comfy and concierge sent up wonderful amenities for my birthday. Close to the subway and great places to eat. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and helped us travel around the city.

David in Reservations was absolutely amazing! We felt like VIPs :)

This hotel has very friendly and attentive staff. The rooms are spacious with the most comfortable beds. Hotel also features a rooftop bar and swimming pool. The restaurant is also wonderful with late night dining hours. We would definitely stay at this hotel again.

Highly recommend the Gansevoort. Large room sizes especially for New York. My room had a king size bed and small couch. Giant bathroom, again especially based on what you usually get for NYC. Plus free wi-fi, which is rare for a hotel of this caliber.

The service was outstanding. Every employee I interacted was personable and friendly beyond what you'd reasonably expect. Asked me real questions rather than just the usual "how are you." Absolutely made me feel at home.

My only criticism is that the location isn't ideal. While there are good restaurants nearby, there's not a ton of shopping or nightlife nearby. But if you're there for business in midtown, it's perfect.

Will absolutely return to the Gansevoort!
