I stayed at the Gansevoort Park Ave in June 2012. Here are some factual observations:
1. The hotel is very chic, as you expect for the place that the Kardashians lived at while they filmed their show. The rooms are standard size, and are decorated in a very modern style (which, personally, I like). Though, there were definitely some "bodily-fluid" stains on the carpet in the room I was in...
2. When I checked out, there were several minibar charges on the bill that were not mine. Once I pointed them out, they removed them, but still, I've never seen so many mini-bar errors on one bill (they do NOT use the system that automatically charges you when you move something).
3. With your key card, you can skip the line to get to the roof bar/club at night. This can be a big plus when there is a line out the door. The pool/club at the top is very cool, and I definitely recommend it, but see #4...
4. HOWEVER! BEWARE!! If you order anything at the pool bar/club, the add gratuity AND a "facility charge." I'm not sure what the latter is, but it is certainly not disclosed anywhere until you get the bill. I don't mind paying $15-20 a drink, but don't try to sneak in extra charges. And, over the course of the night, I watched 15 different people pay with a credit card, and not one single person realized that the gratuity was already included.
5. The gym is about average for a hotel, though it is open 24-hours.
6. WiFi is free throughout the hotel, and the speed seemed to be pretty good.
