Katy Smail

Elegant, cozy and charming, this Boutique Hotel from the Thompson Group feels perfectly in step with the classic masculine style of nearby Wall Street. Nestled in a hidden corner in the Financial District, Gild Hall provides reasonably priced rooms within walking distance to most everywhere in Lower Manhattan.

room

The rooms are dark and cozy with masculine details in leather, dark wood and brass. The stylish vintage aesthetic feels very Mad Men meets luxury hunter's lodge. Large TVs, contemporary magazines, and music docking station help to make the space feel homely. Beds are large and comfortable with 400 thread count SFERRA linens, although the pillows are very soft.

YOU SHOULD KNOW If you prefer your rooms light and bright then this may not be the space for you; the lower rooms, especially, get very little natural light. This, combined with the dark tones of the room, can make the space feel a little dark and dingy.

bathroom

The bathrooms are clean and simple, brightly lit and outfitted with grey tiles and marble floors. The products by local perfumery D.S. & Durga smell divine.

lobby

Walking into the lobby is like strolling through the old library of a Gentleman's Club, complete with leather seating, dark wood, and well-stacked book shelves. An aromatic, smokey perfume hangs in the air, soothing the senses. The area is medium sized, with several spots to sit and enjoy a game of chess or complimentary newspaper.

gym

There are three fitness rooms throughout the hotel, each with one elliptical, one treadmill and free weights.

The hotel also has partnerships with local gyms if you prefer a better equipped workout space; just inquire at the front desk.

dining

Felice Restaurant serves authentic Italian food and wine in a warm and rustic setting.

drinking

La Soffitta wine bar, nestled between the lobby and restaurant, is ambient and inviting with its glowing bottle-lined walls and atmospheric lighting. A lovely, calm spot to enjoy their well-curated selection of wines or a well-crafted cocktail.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Lower Manhattan is fairly compact and easy to explore on foot. You are also close to several subway lines: the 2,3 at Wall Street, J, Z at Broad Street and the A,C at Fulton Street. The Staten Island Ferry is a 12-minute walk and provides great views of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty.

Restaurants

Joe Shanghai (18-minute walk), the classic Chinatown restaurant, serves soup dumplings and other Shanghai classics in a traditional setting. For something more upscale visit Keith McNally's new restaurant, Augustine, at The Beekman Hotel (6-minute walk). The brasserie style restaurant serves French classics in an elegant space.

Bars

The Dead Rabbit (10-minute walk) is a charming Irish Bar steeped in history and lush with beautifully crafted cocktails. The Bar Room at the Beekman Hotel (6-minute walk) offers classic New York luxury beneath the truly beautiful nine-story Victorian era atrium.

WHY WE LIKE IT

For those who enjoy well-appointed, nostalgic style but don't necessarily want to pay the steep price tag, Gild Hall offers both good design and good value for money. The space is warm, cozy and inviting; a welcome respite from the hustle of Lower Manhattan.
