The Gansevoort Meatpacking District www.gansevoorthotelgroup.com/hotels/gansevoort-meatpacking-nyc/
“When I was a boy”, there were only two reasons to go to the Meatpacking district. If you went there during the day it was because you were a blue collar worker who still had a job in one of the not yet abandoned warehouses, or you went there at night to get into trouble. But now… it’s really cool. Go figure.
Opened “way back” in 2004 (wasn’t that yesterday?) this 186-room “cool” hotel, with views of the Hudson and lower Manhattan has 5,500 square feet of meeting space, a rooftop pool and a spa. Plus you have easy access to High Line Park, Chelsea, the West Village and… (this is very, very important to me), easy access to a variety of excellent lattes. If I had a “trendy” group that wanted to be in that part of town, I would always add it to my consideration set.
