Swanky Chelsea Hotel – Stayed at the Gansevoort a number of times as well as frequented the rooftop bar for various events. The scene is swanky and fun. Great drinks and summertime at the pool can't be beat. The rooms are a bit small, but then again it is new york. Location is fantastic, right across the street from Pastis and a block away from excellent nyc shopping (earnest sewn and others).
Great Htel BUT... – It's a great hotel but if any of you are looking to save some $$ then book it at referer.us/8/GoodHotelDeals They usually have some pretty good deals on there!
Downhill – Was great when it first opened, but the crowd has become really trashy. If you like to hang out with the Jersey Shore crowd, then you'll enjoy the atmostphere.
skip Exhale – I decided to try Exhale when I got an email from Rue La La- I usually only go to Soho Sanctuary for my massages and facials. I would never pay full price- I had a pretty poor experience. The amenities are not great- steam room is dingy and doesn’t work well; water is served out of paper cups. The staff was a little unprofessional- they were all hanging around in the main area talking and laughing, and several kept running into the locker room. I walked into one on her cell phone right in front of the locker room entrance. This is a distraction when you’re trying to relax and have a peaceful time. Lastly, all the rooms are in a pretty noisy area-right next to the hair salon and the whirlpool area. Again, all of this detracts from what is supposed to be a peaceful experience. And the services were so-so- my facialist did not provide feedback as requested and the masseuse, while clearly good and well trained, was a little too rough in her manner for me.
Really, I would just go somewhere else. For the cost, there are plenty of other high quality experiences in the city.
Great Accommodations – This is a great place if you have the money. Lets face it people if your traveling to NYC your bound to spend a bundle. This place is a little pricey but its an amazing Hotel, with a pool and an amazing roof top bar with all the amenities you've ever wanted. They treat you like your royalty and why not your spending a pretty penny but this is the place to stay if your in the city thats for sure. I feel like it has a younger crowd and not only does it have one of the hottest night spots in the city but there are bars and clubs all around the area.
Rooftop... – It's way too crowded, I can never move when I go. Bottle service is slow and the staff is rude, no matter how much you spend. They don't treat people in VIP the right way. The main bar is over crowded and the balcony is too narrow. The crowd is definitely older.

Amusements include a 45-ft heated outdoor pool (replete with underwater music and lights), free bicycle rental and the full-service Exhale spa.
security wanted to get extra money – Have been at the place many times before and liked it, but the last visit spoiled everything.
Came there last tuesday, my friend were leaving next day for another country, so we wanted to have a lil party. The security at the door (brunette guy with beard) asked us as usual ID. So gave him mine, he said that its not me! but it was ME, the pic was made 4 years ago, so i might look lil different. he asked to spell my last name, i did, he said it was wrong! I said my date of birth, but i didnt really remember the adress on ID, cos it was 4 years ago! But he still was saying that its not mine... I thought may be he was kidding, but he was serious and very. He said that he will call to police or if i want my ID back GIVE HIM 100 DOLLARS!!! I was so confused, shocked and said that im not gonna give him any money, just give me back my ID... After he said: Ok, how much you can give me for your ID... After another security came and my friend told him that that guy wants 100 dollars, so he said him smthg, took our ID and gave it back to us. But the evening was already spoiled... Will never back again!
A great night out – Went here for my friends birthday dinner. The whole experience was great. We were a larger party and we opted to have our server put together an order for us. The food was great, the drinks were strong and they had a great DJ. We will definitely come back for another party
Went for diner during restaurant week, Will never visit again. Rock shrimp tempura was made from frozen shrimp & did not resemble anything close to rock shrimp. Kumamoto oyster shooters with wasabi tobiko & quail egg ??A? the picture had 4 of them, the restaurant served 2. Surf and turf was horrible. We all felt like we had a piece of meat without any seasoning with too much sauce. Warm chocolate miso cake was the best part of the dinner. We were asked if we want water & then charged $10 per bottle. Waste of money. Too noisy. Horrible food.
