As one of the few luxury hotels in New York City’s trendy Meatpacking District, the swanky Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC is a go-to for trendsetters. A short walk from the neighborhood’s top attractions (ranging from the High Line to shops such as Trina Turk and Scoop NYC), Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC puts you in a dynamic position to explore all the vivacious city has to offer.

Inside the walls of the Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel, you’ll find sleek guest rooms blanketed in vibrant color (bright blue and magenta juxtaposed by calming silvers) and outfitted with amenities such as wall-mounted LCD TVs and Curious Provisions vintage boom boxes that you can hook up to your Apple and Android devices. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that the beds are swathed in luxuriously soft Egyptian cotton linens — making it that much easier to fall asleep after a long day in New York.

Downstairs, you’ll find The Chester, where you can nosh on delicious dishes ranging from Chilean sea bass skewers to a 20-ounce New York strip steak. For nightlife, head to Provocateur, which is composed of Provocateur Café and Provocateur Nightclub. But if you really want a taste of the city, venture up to the rooftop Plunge Bar and Lounge, where you’ll find an indoor loft-like venue decked out with flat-screen TVs, a DJ booth and plush couches. Outside, soak up the views (and the sun during the warmer months) as you enjoy a grapefruit Cosmo.

If you find that you need a bit of relaxation during your stay at the boutique hotel, book a treatment at Exhale Fitness and Spa. You can get in shape with one of the Core Fusion and yoga classes, then reward yourself with a massage.
