Finding a luxurious summer party at a rooftop bar in the city is an easy and enjoyable feat. Finding it without your make-up sweating off your face is borderline unrealistic, because let’s just be honest, Manhattan in the swells of summer heat can be downright offensive. And don’t even get me started on when the humidity comes out to play, too.
So, in a much-appreciated effort to combine the luxury of rooftop appeal with the eternally desperate New Yorker’s desire to cool off, the Gansevoort Hotel Group is opening their rooftop pools for a day of hooky. Normally exclusively reserved for overnight guests, both Meatpacking and Park Avenue locations are offering a special deal for visitors to obtain full access to their indoor and outdoor pools. Oh, and a full-on spa day, as well.
With rates starting from $300, guests opting for the Renewal Package will receive:
- Access to the rooftop pool
- One poolside cocktail
- One Core Fusion class
- One 30 minute massage
- One 30 minute facial
- 10% off Exhale Mind Body Spa boutique purchases
- Complimentary gift bag including sunscreen and SPF lip balm
So in lieu of braving the subway in the sweltering heat to get to a local beach or piling onto the Jitney for a weekend on the Hampton sands, live like the Kardashians (who also stay at the Gansevoort, as if anyone didn’t know that) and take the hotel up on this enticing sunny alternative. Available Monday through Thursday until September 3rd, it just might be time to cash in a personal day from work and treat yourself to that much needed summertime relaxation.
However, if a one day getaway doesn’t seem like quite enough (and really, one day never does), consider amping up the luxury and booking yourself a staycation at the Gansevoort. As an overnight guest, you will not only have full access to their rooftop pool, but can also enhance the adventurer in you with the Hit the High Line package.
Located in the heart of the Meatpacking District, the 1.45-mile long elevated park is a unique way to enjoy the city views and offers stops for food vendors, picnicking, or casually relaxing above the bustle of Manhattan. In fact, this package has already worked in your likely desire for traveling the High Line in leisure, including these additional items with the Hit the High Line purchase:
- Access to the High Line (including the recently opened phase 2)
- A stylish eco-friendly tote
- Boxed lunch
- One Gansevoort thermos
- The official designing of the High Line book
With rates starting at $332, this package is available at both hotel locations and, like the Renewal Package, can be booked at http://www.gansevoorthotelgroup.com/.
If you’re getting weird tan lines from trying to catch rays on your lunch break and watching the sun beat down on your office window is becoming too much to bare, take advantage of this go-to summer spot right in the heart of Manhattan. Can you honestly say it won’t be worth??
