Gild Hall, a Thompson Hotel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 25 September 2013

Like many people, I've had my fair share of travel to NY for business. It's always been a challenge to find a nice place to stay, particularly within corporate budget restraints. Gild Hall delivered on many levels. Not only was it incredibly clean, comfortable, and quiet, but the decor was beautiful, the staff extremely friendly, and my meal from the hotel restaurant was delicious. I found myself with all the comforts of home, but taken up a notch since I was in a luxurious environment with a great meal I didn't have to cook. I also had the best night of sleep I've had since becoming a mom six months ago :-) I'll definitely look for Thompson Hotels for future travel.

Staff from our company has traveled to the city 10-15 times for business over the past year and this hotel is our top pick to date! We love the location, atmosphere, staff, bar and restaurant. I'm amazed at how nice the rooms are and just love the high ceilings, cool chandeliers in the guest rooms and the cleanliness of the whole place in general. The rooms are also a great size for a NYC hotel. It was booked on our last trip so we couldn't stay and the team was bummed. We love Gild Hall and would recommend it to anyone traveling to the city!

I am a frequent guest at Gild Hall and travel quite a bit for work throughout the US. They consistently meet my rather high standards for hotel accomodations. The rooms are better than average size for Manhattan, always clean, and the staff are always pleasant and helpful. it is a unique space, not like your standard hotels, which I like and my Wife loves, since she is in the furniture business.

I recommend the hotel to many friends and business travelers.

Room Tip: Like most hotels, it is always better to stay on the higher floors to avoid street noise, although t...

We chose the hotel at the last minute, and didn't realize it was quite so far downtown. I was worried at first that it would be inconvenient, but it is actually very accessable to the Meat Packing District and Soho, the two areas we were planning to visit, at a much better price than hotels we normally stay at in those areas. The sevice was amazing from the valet, to the bell hop, and front staff.
The area around the hotel is fun and bustling, even at night, and the rooms, beds and bedding were extremely comfortable.
We would absolutely stay here again.

We have just returned from a 9 night stay in this excellent hotel. Having stayed in midtown on two previous occasions we wanted a change, but were reluctant at being so far downtown. We shouldn't have worried, this is an ideal location for even the first time visitor to NYC, the hotel is two streets from Fulton Street subway, which has almost every line running through it, or a further street to get to City Hall subway for another very useful line.
It is also useful for the East river ferry, this will get you up to midtown for $4, and in our view is the best $4 you could ever spend in New York.
The hotel staff are excellent,fom the front desk, to the doorman, to the staff in Felice restaurant. We have had larger rooms in Manhattan, but these are perfectly adequate. Apart from sleeping we spend very little time in them. Clothes storage is minimal, especially if you are in a twin double. We found the air conditioning in the room to be alittle on the noisy side, but not enough to keep you awake.
I do feel that a hotel of this caliber should offer in-room tea and coffee, we have stayed in budget hotels that offer this.
There are plenty of places to have breakfast as most workers in the financial district tend to have breakfast on the way to work.
During the week the area is buzzing, from early till late, restaurants and bars are lively. At the weekend it is bit quieter, which is a pleasant change.
As can be seen from previous reviews on choosing this hotel you wont be disappointed.

I stayed here over the weekend and absolutely loved Gild Hall. Complimentary Prosecco at check in was a nice touch and it spoke well towards the type of hotel Gild Hall is: boutique styling with the courtesy of a corporate, but very cool, parent company, Thompson. What this equates to is the ability to be unique, small and intimate while not carrying the associations of a spotty staff or maintenance record. Gild Hall brilliantly blends modern design with warm comfort, a feat not easily achieved. The room was fantastic - 12' + ceilings opened the space and the absence of the typical hotel "stock art" was well received by both parties. They do very well with the little space they had, but for an NYC hotel, and one downtown, the room felt spacious and well appointed. One thing that made a huge impact was the cleanliness of the bathroom. White pedestal sink was spotless and the water pressure and hot water will not disappoint. One thing though, the bathroom has a modern touch that maybe not everyone will appreciate: the wall between it and the bedroom is translucent, and you will see the figure of whoever's in there. So, it's not for the squeamish or overly private. Otherwise a fantastic, comfortable, clean and fashionable place for those that don't want the hustle, bustle and frenzy of a some of the larger design oriented stays. Also, many hotels like this try to make their lobby into a club (Tribeca/Soho Grand), probably to boost revenue. You won't find that here, which I personally find to be great. When I go home, I don't want to push through a bunch of drunk revelers, slamming bass, and have to show my keycard to a bouncer. Here its a nice quiet trip back to my room, past the friendly front desk staff and up to bed. Thanks Gild, you made for a great weekend.

Room Tip: We had a king deluxe room and I'll get the same again next time I stay. Large for NYC, quiet an...

Welcome to downtown NYC in the world famous financial area, near World Trade Center and Wall Street tourist sites. Everything you need is available at this hotel. The rooms are good, with drinks and a young crowd in house. A very good restaurant in the hotel, with a very good menu. Sports bar too. All the amenities that you need, and many more that you might want. Try it.
