The Ganesvoort Meatpacking

Gansevoort Meatpacking is an iconic hotel that has called New York City home for more than 15 years. The 186-room hotel features a full service ground-floor restaurant, year-round rooftop bar and restaurant, a 45-foot heated outdoor pool, and indoor and outdoor space where guests can enjoy unobstructed, 360-degree views of the Manhattan skyline.

Located on Ninth Ave and 13th Street, Gansevoort is an anchor in Manhattan’s vibrant Meatpacking District, which has transformed from an industrial district into a hub for fashion, design, culinary excellence and the arts. The property is just steps away from the Hudson River, the High Line, Little Island, premium shopping and dining, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Chelsea Market and more. The property has completed a top-to-bottom renovation touching all floors, accommodations and public spaces.
