Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC

A smart-looking address on a cool corner
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.
