Dope Digs: Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC
For my 23rd birthday two Septembers ago, I wanted to splurge on something special. 23 just seemed so blah and I wanted to do something to spice it up! I saw that there was a blogging conference in New York City that happened to fall over the week of the 8th so I decided to make a trip out of attending and celebrating my birthday in style.
After spending the majority of the week sleeping on the floor of my friend's tiny dorm room at FIT, I couldn't wait for my big night at the Gansevoort Meatpacking NYC.
On recommendation from a friend, I decided to book the Gansevoort's Night Owl package, which included early check-in, a bottle of Belvedere, free passes to a nearby club and access to the hotel's pool. All of the extras made it even more special, but the room alone was enough to make me feel like an urban queen with its sexy, modern features and magenta and black color scheme.
Unfortunately it was raining on our first afternoon, but the next day welcomed our hungover heads with a dose of sunshine and a gorgeous rooftop pool begging us to come in and splash away the aftereffects of an epic night out in the Meatpacking District.
