whether you are interested in spending the night (or just a few hours), the gansevoort park avenue is bound to grab your attention.
you may have already noticed the electric blue lights announcing its arrival. (if not, no worries—the south beach-style illumination is a staple here.) inside, find contempo style rooms with juliet balconies and lofty ceilings. and if size matters, you can have your pick of rooms ranging from 475 to 1,560 square feet. like all of its locations, the spa at the gansevoort features exhale's signature core fusion classes and an onsite cutler salon avail for primping. but if it's dinner you're after, check out asellina, the huge resto named after an ancient pompeii tavern. but lest you forget where you are, the hotel wouldn't be complete without a bit of nightlife debauchery thrown in. trek up to the 19th-floor indoor/outdoor rooftop pool that has a collapsible garage door and sundeck that overlooks the empire state building. (plus it's fully equipped with fireplaces to keep you warm come winter.) and while the nightlife scene is pretty much guaranteed to be as great as its MPD sister, the rules of the pool remain the same—it will be open to the public during the week for a hefty fee.
