Best New York Hotels That You Need to Visit Right Now

Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC

Having it all (in New York, of all places) feels like a lot to ask, but at the Gansevoort Hotel, it might just be possible. Standing tall over the Meatpacking district, the Gansevoort has the local charm of a neighbourhood hotel, with Greenwich Village gems like the breakfast spot Buvette, and Soho's McNally Jackson bookshop on its doorstep. The city sites of Midtown are also closeby, but for afternoons when you'd rather give your feet a welcome break, the views from the rooftop pool are plentiful – from Chelsea's trendy shoebox galleries to The Whitney museum overlooking the Hudson River.

The Gansevoort has sat in the Meatpacking for some 20 years but was revamped in 2022 to give the hotel a modern lift that feels in touch with the changing district it sits in. Artwork plays a big part in this, and in the spacious 186 rooms and lobby of the Gansevoort tower there are stylish statement pieces by artists including Richard Hambleton, and a lesser-known 2003 Banksy. Food has also been a focus in the renovation, better reflecting how sought-after the Meatpacking has become as a dining destination. As a result, the rooftop pool area has also been updated to include a 16-seat omakase bar, Saishin, with traditional nigiri and more experimental fare, like seasonal oysters with Peruvian citrus sauce, on offer. The Meatpacking's so-called renaissance in the last decade or so has made it the Manhattan spot where you can really have it all, and the Gansevoort is sitting tall in the middle of it. 18 9th Ave, New York, NY 10014.
