Financial District dandy dressed in leather and plaid serving up old vintages and Tuscan fare
Equal parts hip and homey, with buttery leather couches and warm wood details, Gild Hall feels like a combination Old World London clubhouse and swinging ’70s lounge. From the antler chandelier in the lobby to the many books lining the walls to the Slim Aarons photos in the hallways, it works. And the masculine, moneyed vibe feels just right in the heart of New York’s Financial District, an area not previously known for stylish boutique hotels.
Bed & Bath
The 126 rooms are large and inviting, some with 12-foot ceilings, a rarity in New York. Graphic wallpapers mix with such classic bachelor pad touches as antique brass chandeliers, plaid flannel throws and leather headboards with belt-like detailing. Marble-floored bathrooms spoil guests with oversize Sferra robes and C.O. Bigelow toiletries.
The happy hour crowd unwinds at marble café tables lit by single tapers, or in nailhead-trimmed leather booths, flanked by a sophisticated selection of wines at La Soffitta, the hotel’s wine bar. Downstairs, Felice Ristorante and Wine Bar serves hearty helpings of Tuscan fare for power lunches and business dinners. Think classic bolognese, carbonara and vongole. There’s also a great menu of aperitivo and antipasti if you just want a few bites before heading out on the town.
