Gansevoort Meatpacking Nyc

Great Location, Artsy, Vibrant

18 Ninth Avenue, 18 Ninth Avenue, New York 10014


At a Glance

In the heart of the vibrant Meatpacking District, the revitalized Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC eschews the hotel’s original (and legendary) party vibe in favor of a fresh and grown-up (though still sexy) take on urban luxury.

Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC

Meatpacking has grown up, and so has Gansevoort. Having undergone a transformative multi-million-dollar renovation, the Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC reemerged in 2023 as a sophisticated and lively haven in the Meatpacking District. Once a pioneer of the neighborhood’s evolution, the hotel retains its original celebratory spirit and adds a layer of refined maturity. The crowd is a dynamic mix of locals, tourists and couples, all drawn by the hotel's revival and proximity to coveted landmarks.

Gansevoort’s new lease on life is apparent in the lobby (lighter and more intimate than before, with a Banksy on display), but most especially in the guest rooms. Though they maintain their original footprint, they now imbue a more sophisticated ambiance, with atmospheric ombré wallpapers in shades of blue and gray complemented by backlit walnut headboards and subway-tiled bathrooms.

The Gansevoort offers guests a good diversity of food and beverage options. The Chester has a lively atmosphere and American fare (very popular for post-work gatherings), and guests can enjoy coffee or dine alfresco at lounge area of Coffee + Cocktails (C+C). On the rooftop is their classic restaurant, a beautiful space with a menu of shareable dishes crafted from the Union Square market produce. But the true gem is Saishin by Kissaki, a hidden sushi oasis (also on the rooftop) where artful presentations meet a panoramic cityscape.

The hotel has a gym, but no spa. The open-air rooftop pool, which in the hotel’s past life welcomed a sceney, but rowdy party crowd, is now for guests only. It’s heated, and open till 6 p.m. daily, year-round—a rarity in New York. The pool deck itself, which offers fabulous Manhattan views, is on the small side, with too few loungers. But if you don’t mind sitting in a more upright chair or along the edge of the pool, it counts as one of the city’s best hotel rooftops. And when you’re ready to explore, options abound: wander along the High Line, immerse yourself in the Whitney Museum's art or indulge in the offerings of Chelsea Market.

Essentially, the Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC's transformation encapsulates the essence of the Meatpacking District's journey—a fusion of heritage and innovation.

Who Should Stay

Couples or families with older children looking for a cool ambiance, diverse dining options and a prime location; Manhattan-focused visitors looking for an outdoor pool.
