U.S. News Review

Located on the East Side's Park Avenue (between 28th and 29th streets), this chic Gansevoort shares a similar, hip vibe with its sister hotel in the Meatpacking District. The rooftop pool serves as a consistent guest favorite for its gorgeous city views and for its reputation as a hip nightlife spot. Recent guests also rave about the attentive service and plush accommodations. Each room features lofty ceilings, blue and purple accents, 400-thread-count Egyptian cotton linens, iPod docking stations and lavish Cutler bath products. Some ultra-luxurious suites even boast Juliet balconies and sweeping views overlooking Park Avenue South. And when you need a break from roaming through Manhattan's urban streets, you can get in some cardio at the fully equipped gym or indulge in a rejuvenating massage at Exhale Spa. Afterward, lounge by the rooftop pool or savor Italian fare at Ristorante Asellina, the hotel's intimate dining venue, which earns high marks from previous patrons for its tasty cuisine and top-notch service.

Critic Reviews


“The Gansevoort Park, on Park Avenue South at 29th Street, sits among office buildings in a bit of a no man's land between Union Square and Midtown East.”

New York Magazine

“What keeps it all from feeling too rote or slick, though, is a warm, professional staff that treats each guest with the same zero-attitude courtesy — be they business traveler, tourist, or roving pack of models.”

Condé Nast Traveler

“The literal high point? The Gansevoort Park Rooftop, with attached outdoor balconies, an indoor/outdoor pool deck, and the top outdoor rooftop level, which offers an amazing 360-degree panorama of the city's iconic skyline.”
