I was visiting NYC for a birthday weekend with a few other friends. Hotel was great - nice, clean rooms, friendly helpful staff. Very small gym, but fine for a few days. Only small challenge was that it was a wee bit of a challenge getting cabs in the financial district on a weekend, but if give yourself a bit... More

The decor is definitely something to remember. Green leather carpet in the lobby with deer antlers? Sure I'll take that! The rooms are definitely decently-sized by NYC standards. Walking distance to Seaport, there's a great restaurant Barbarini with amazing prosciutto! We definitely took advantage of the minibar and the little Bigleow shampoos- LOVE!

If you want to stay in a modern hotel that has beautiful class and luxury, far enough away from the hustle and bustle yet only a short train right away if you want to be part of the action, then gild hall is the place for you. I requested an early check in from the regular 3 o'clock time and... More

I had a great short-stay experience at the Gild Hall. The lobby and rooms have an interesting vibe... The staff is friendly and the bed was nice and comfortable. I highly recommend it!

We stayed here for a long weekend escape. We explored a good deal of New York City, which meant we were often traveling far away from this secluded Financial District location. But even being off the beaten path, we enjoyed this hotel. A short walk to the subway, we were able to easily get further North. This is of course... More

I needed a one night stay in New York for a work trip. A Bloomspot deal arrived in my email inbox for Gild Hall, so I purchased it, since the reviews were very good and the overall vibe looked appealing. The decor appeared modern retro, with a lodge in the woods type of vibe, but stylish. Everything went smoothly upon... More

I enjoyed the hotel. It has multiple sitting/bar areas and is a good hangout spot, with lots of interesting people to watch and talk to. The room itself is nice, but i think i got upgraded as i got in late and they were sold out. Sometimes a bit too reliant on being cool from a service standpoint. Area is... More

Stsyed here in April. In heart of financial. Good for weekday business travel. A little far from weekend activities. Is very close to seaport. Few markets nearby. Subway 1 block away. Staff very friendly. Loved the decor. Creative, interesting. Would highly recommend. Especially for the price.

Staying in Financial District

Neighborhood Profile
Financial District
At the southernmost tip of Manhattan, the Financial District is where New York City began as a center of commerce. Today, the historic streets and beautiful setting are complemented by museums, countless skyscrapers, and the heart of the Financial District, home to Wall Street and the New York Stock Exchange. Catch the Staten Island Ferry for an unbeatable view of the skyline and Statue of Liberty, or sail to Ellis Island to learn about the vital immigrant history of the city.
