New York, NY
The ultra-hip Gansevoort is a freestanding building of striking zinc-colored metal panels, glass-sheathed Juliet balconies and projecting bay windows that enliven the modern exterior while forming the focal point of guestroom interiors. Designed to complement the area’s stylish restaurants and boutiques, the hotel’s ground floor entrance on cobble-stoned Ninth Avenue features internally illuminated glass columns and a 14-foot high revolving door. The glass columns, with their ever-changing colors, create the illusion that the building is supported by light. Recalling the canopies of early 20th century meat-packing buildings, the hotel’s canopy wraps around the corner of Ninth Avenue and 13th Street. The Hotel Gansevoort has 187 guestrooms. All guestrooms have nine-foot ceilings and feature bay windows that lend themselves to inspired interior room configurations and include seating areas within the extents of the window. One-third of the guestrooms have balconies and two corner suites on each floor have a living room and bedroom with an available adjoining guestroom.
