In a neighborhood that has a distinct architectural style, master architect Andi Pepper his wife have designed the 187-room, 14-floor Hotel Gansevoort to be sophisticated and minimalistic. With a lavish use of leather and fabric, they have created a rich, contemporary feeling. The signature feature of the hotel is it's rooftop - featuring a richly landscaped roof garden and an expansive loft with soaring 20-foot ceiling that offers breathtaking city views in three directions and is a stylish new venue for special events.
