“Great Place To Stay In Manhattan's FiDi”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

My job requires a great deal of travel; too much according to my wife and children. Travelling and specifically hotel stays can become burdensome, tiring, and add to occupational pressures. This is not the case with Gild Hall.
The location is absolutely perfect for anyone conducting business in, or touring the financial district. Additionally, from downtown, access to entire subway system is ideal making citywide travel efficient.
The rooms at this hotel are reminiscent of European boutique hotel offerings and if within your budget, I would recommend a suite.
The hotel furnishings are a cool mix of chic/retro/ contemporary which combine to provide a great ambience.
The service is friendly and courteous. They go out of their way to assure you stay is a pleasant one. Thanks Esther!
The bar and restaurant offer a fantastic venue for dining and partaking in your favorite libation(s). Go for the house wine--- you will not be disappointed.
I look forward to my next trip and will certainly be staying with my friends at Gild Hall.

The rooms are very clean and the front desk is also very helpful. Moreover the hotel has a 2 floor bar area where you can enjoy drinks, play chess or checker or access the free wifi (wifi on room is extra). The AC was a bit loud and also the bathroom did not provide big privacy because of the nearly transparent (glass) wall/door. So I only giv 4 out of 5 points.
The location of the hotel is amazing. You can walk just a few minutes to Ground Zero, Wall Street, Battery Park, Pier 15. Also Brooklyn Bridge is not very far away. There were a lot of "business people" in the hotel, whereas we use the hotel as a holiday hotel.

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.
