Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC

Luxury hotel in West Village, Chelsea & Meatpacking District

Coated in zinc-colored panels, the 14-floor Gansevoort has been a swank pioneer of the Meatpacking District since it opened in 2004. All 162 rooms and 22 suites are luscious and airy, with chocolate-colored suede headboards, plasma-screen TVs and illuminated bathroom doors. On the rooftop are chic bar Lelie and a skinny pool (heated and open year-round) overlooking the Hudson River.

There's also a street-level bistro, The Chester, and a 24-hour fitness center.
