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.
How to Get There
In the heart of Wall Street, very close to the 9/11 Memorial and to the Brooklyn Bridge, Thomson Hotel has a strategic location! With the Fulton Tube Station and the Pier 16 you can start easily your New York experience!!!
This isn’t a cookie cutter hotel and I think you’ll appreciate that the moment you walk in the door. This hotel has a modern take on Prohibition Era style that feels a bit masculine and luxurious. I’ve stayed thousands of nights in hotels and can definitely say I recommend Gild Hall!
Hotel in Manhattan should have been better. No wash clothes in bathroom, no parking discount at recommended parking lot, no top sheet on bed, no exhaust fan in bathroom, no mirror other than the bathroom
I really loved staying at Gild Hall. The hotel has a really great boutique feel while still providing everything found in a bigger chain hotel. The decor is really awesome and unique throughout, so it adds to the experience of staying at the hotel. Everyone we interacted with was genuinely friendly and helpful, so customer service was awesome across the board. They even have bikes you can use for free and prosecco during check-in! The bed was comfortable, the room was bigger than average for NYC, and the in-room toiletries were nice. The windows were relatively small, but that's a minor complaint. The location isn't as convenient for the main tourist sites in Midtown, but it's close enough to Chelsea and the East Village. I'm looking forward to returning next time I'm in NYC.
Beautiful hotel in one of Hyatt's newly acquired beands. A real gem in New York. Loved the custom headboards, the welcome prosecco, and the spacious rooms. Service was top-notch. I will definitely be returning!
