“Delightful!”
Reviewed 21 January 2014

I spent a long holiday weekend at the Gild Hall Hotel in the Financial District. It was a real discovery. The location was calm, a real retreat from the busy city. The staff was great, perfect welcoming and helpful without being scripted or overly obsequious. They got all the details right, from windows that open to splendid linens, wonderfully cozy restaurant, generous upgrades. And the low weekend prices did not hurt either. Already planning a return fling! Well done!!

It's an obvious statement to say that NYC has plenty of hotels for an overnight stay, but only one hotel can offer perfect accommodations. Gild Hall is by far the most well thought out hotel in Manhattan, the attention to detail goes far beyond the aesthetically pleasing decor.

I arrived to Gild Hall with my girlfriend shortly before 1pm looking just to drop our bags off because we knew their check-in was 3pm, but to my surprise our room which had been upgraded to a suite was available for an early check-in. The Guest Service Agent, if my memory serves me correctly I believe her name is Perry, was extremely helpful with recommending a great place for lunch and the best way to reach our destinations in Brooklyn.

The Suite was amazing; it felt as if we were staying in a friends well furnished apartment for the weekend. The design of the suite was well thought out; our bathroom featured a double sink which for some people might not seem important, but they come in handy when two people are looking to prepare themselves for night on the town.

Our sleep was enjoyable, we couldn’t hear any noise from the Saturday night activity of Manhattan, nor could we hear anything from the neighboring guests.

The Kicker:
Upon our return to the hotel on Saturday night the cable in the building had gone out due to some outside construction work, we were told this when we called the Front Desk looking to see why our TV wasn’t working. The Front Desk Agent told me that because of the cable outage that we could order movies and use WiFi without any charge. This was a great concession considering the room featured two nice mounted TVs.

Overall, the experience we had at the Gild Hall was awesome. This has become the only hotel that we’ll visit when we have to make trips into Manhattan.

Decor was awesome, staff was attentive and fun, and the location is great. I have never stayed in the Financial District before but this hotel is very convenient to SOHO and Tribeca for parties and great food but right in the heart of the Financial District. I highly recommend this hotel. Thompson Hotels has a great product at terrific prices.

Loved my stay for 2 nights. Lobby feels like a loft in the woods. Super friendly staff, my room was official, bathroom doors are really cool. Bed comfy like no other, nice reading hanging lamps on both sides, Great decor, very at home-like. Quiet at night, nice size flat screen (DVD player woulda been an extra plus) they supply you with an ihome-touch, right next to wall st, Staten Island ferry. Great surrounding eateries. Definitely top notch hotel with more than affordable prices. No jacuzzi/pool but that was o.k. No complaints just compliments

I stayed here for one night during a business trip to NYC. The front desk staff were amazingly friendly, and even gave me a (much needed) glass of champagne while he was checking me in. The room was spacious, and very comfortable. I look forward to staying here again.

For my brother's wedding at the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens we all packed up and spent the weekend downtown at Gild Hall with all our of town guests. I would absolutely recommend this hotel to anyone. It truly was the perfect weekend and this hotel made us feel at home, in a perfectly stylish yet upsale environment. This hotel is the perfect spot for both out of towners or just a couple looking for a weekend getaway!

Excellent and clean hotel in the financial district of Manhattan, with pretty affordable prices. Great room service and dining options. The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. Very close to many of the different subway lines.

I stayed there with my fiancé on two separate occasions; we both loved it. Everything was clean with more than enough space.

Will stay there again.
