My husband and I found ourselves kid-free for one night, and quickly looked for a place that would be fun and a little different. The rate we found online for the Gansevoort was very good, and the fact that they had a rooftop pool sealed the deal for us on a hot July weekend.
Front desk (Valerie?) was great and upgraded us to a Deluxe room upon check-in. The room was on the 12th floor and was fantastic. Plenty of room, and beautiful views of the Hudson and the rest of the meatpacking district.
Rooftop pool was crowded, but we skulked about until someone left and we could commandeer 2 chairs. We were definitely the oldest people there (late 40s/early 50s) but we really got a kick out of watching groups of girls from bachelorette parties and single guys making their moves on each other. This is quite the scene, so take it for what's it's worth, have a few drinks, and enjoy. Pool was warm and you can enjoy cocktail service in the water, surrounded by Manhattan views. What's not to love? P.S. Just want to compliment the bartenders and waitresses around the pool. Really tight area to maneuver with trays of drinks. Very impressive!
The location is amazing. Tons of interesting shops, beautiful streets and good restaurants. Great to walk along the Highline and to go for a run along the Westside Highway up or downtown. It is really a party zone, so don't expect a quiet night of sleep. Bring earplugs and just surrender to the fact that you're in the most happening area in NYC these days.
We'll definitely be back for another staycation if the price is right.
