The Gansevoort Park Avenue, one of a number of notable new hotels coming to New York in the coming months, will soon be opening its doors. The hotel is slated to debut on August 2, and there’s a low, low (said in cheesy TV voice) intro rate of $275/night. After that, the regular rack rate is $395, so get it on the cheap while you can. Just what can you get at the Meatpacking madness hotel’s new location?
First, rooms. You get a lot of space for your money. The hotel’s 249 rooms average 475 square feet. Even the entry-level superior rooms are 350 square feet, palatial for New York. There are 400 thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, Hi-def LCD TVs, iPod docks, free Wi-Fi, and all the other nice stuff there’d better be. The style is modern but warm, with contemporary four-poster beds and a muted, gray-and-neutral color scheme punctuate by splashes of chartreuse and fuchsia. Of course, you’re not coming to the Gansevoort just to relax in your room.
There’s a rooftop indoor/outdoor pool twenty stories up and a Plunge Rooftop Bar and Lounge, just like the MePa location. Downstairs, a restaurant called Asselina will serve “half-portions and finger-foods to meet our various clientele’s dining preferences.” Perfect for models! A bar called Twenty33 will serve infused liquors. There will also be an Exhale spa, offering its signature Core fusion class to work off those half-portions.
