We had a nice stay at the Gild while attending my niece's wedding. Comfortable rooms, friendly service. Room size was variable; ours was on the small size but the one our kids got was substantially roomier. (same price) Exercise room was small but there were 3 of them in the hotel! I only used the one on the 18th floor. Parking available across the street; NYC prices! Ordinarily wifi costs $15 /day but was complimentary to the wedding guests who had reserved a block of rooms. Overall a pleasant stay.

We are still hosted at the hotel but we wanted to be quick to review this terrific hotel. We have a fantastic room, full of little details that makes the room cozy and elegant. The service is being awesome helping fndind a vase for flowers I had bought. Also we used their free cool and fancy bikes. 
Just one small issue waking us up with a testing fire alarm but we will be back. Thanks!!!

My experience at Gild Hall was great. We stayed here for 2 nights. We arrived about 2 hours before check-in and they happily let us check-in early. The room was clean and nicely decorated. The room and bathroom were small, but that is typical for NYC hotels. My only complaint is the location. The hotel was far from our daily destinations, so getting around took up a lot of travel time (uber and subway).

We stayed for 2 nights in April and it's a very nice hotel. The rooms are upscale and clean and the shower is wonderful. Valet parking is a bit pricey and there is a garage just across the street. So rather than paying $45/car, $55/SUV, just park it yourself for less (or park on the street for free). The location is in the financial district and most things we wanted to do were in midtown, which required either the subway or Uber.

Overall it's a good hotel with very friendly staff.

My husband and I recently stayed at Gild Hall as part of my birthday celebration. The staff at Gild Hall were very friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable about the area. The room was very large, beautifully decorated and well appointed with necessities as well as nice extras. The bar is a great spot to relax. The location is great, an authentic New York neighborhood, with good access to transportation, and plenty to see and do right there. We are looking forward to another visit soon.

My first experience with this hotel was so exceptional, that two months later I actually felt compelled to write the head of the company and share my thoughts. I have a special needs child who has minor autism and this hotel went so far out of their way to make our stay the best that I can't even list everything here. Let's start with the surprise gifts for my son, the staff pitched in and actually sent someone out to get him some considerably nice gifts. The service was BEYOND EXCEPTIONAL. I just can't say enough about this hotel. Location is nice and quiet, tucked away off the beaten path down in the Financial District. It is central to transportation and lots nearby. Quite simple, it's the only place we will stay in NYC, period, that's how great an impression they left on us.....

I was in New York recently for pleasure and found the Gild Hall through Booking.com. The hotel is 4* with 9 rooms per floor and 18 floors. Complementary breakfast was served. My room was a good size by New York standards, clean, comfortable and quiet. Breakfast was served in the Felice restaurant on the 1st Floor. Staff were exceedingly helpful and friendly and the hotel is located close to Fulton Street Subway station which is good for a range of subway lines.

Just a couple of small quibbles.

Firstly this is the 21st century so I am always amazed when hotels charge for in-room wifi. At Gild Hall in room wifi is $15 per day but the service is at least fast. Wifi is free in the lobby but I only found that our when I saw a lot of people sitting their with computers!

Secondly you get a voucher from breakfast but it allows you only to have the continental breakfast which, although ok wore a bit thin after 5 days. A better option might have been a value voucher to be redeemed against whatever you want on the breakfast menu.

Over all though it was a nice hotel and I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Only 9 rooms per floor so choose a room with a low final number as these are furthest from the eleva...
