Among the cobblestoned
streets of Manhattan’s trendy
meatpacking district, stands
the Hotel Gansevoort – the
district’s only luxury retreat
and full service resort hotel.
Designed by architect
Stephen B. Jacobs, the hotel
had its grand opening in late
2003 and remains as one of
the most prominent
architectural features in the
meatpacking district. The
hotel, named after the
historic New York native
family, offers 360 degree
views of the Manhattan
skyline, including impressive
sunsets over the city’ western
front, the Hudson River.  
At night, the hotel is illuminated by choreographed color lighting behind
prominent geometric-shaped windows. Reflections off the zinc colored metal
panels that frame the building emphasize the building’s commitment to light.
With interior design by Andi Pepper, each of the 187 guestrooms and 23 suites
offers contemporary and minimalist styling with a color palette of smooth
neutrals combined with pops of blackberry.
The hotel softly combines
natural elements like wood
paneling with concrete and
ceramics, while glass
enclosed balconies and
projecting bay windows
create unique exterior

The hotel features a
meatpacking-plant inspired
canopy that wraps around
one corner of the building’s
The Tanuki Tavern, a luxury Japanese restaurant/ bar, and the luxurious Exhale
Spa both inhabit the Hotel Gansevoort’s ground floor. The hotel’s main feature,
however, is the dual 5,500 square feet event space and outdoor heated pool
and lounge area that share the building’s rooftop area. The Hotel Gansevoort’s
exclusive Plunge Bar and Lounge features an inspiring rooftop garden while the
hotel’s loft event space is memorable for its multi-levels, 20-foot ceilings and
expansive windows.
The Hotel Gansevoort – located at 13th Street and 9th Avenue and only a short
distance from Greenwich Village and Union Square – is nested between eclectic
boutique retailers, chic restaurants, and trendy nightclubs. Restaurants like French
bistro Pastis and Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s Asian fusion restaurant, Spice
Market, are nearby haunts frequented by West Village locals.
