We stayed at the Gild Hall while we were in town to join in the 5boro bike ride in May. We chose this hotel for its convenient location to the ride start but were wowed by its great atmosphere, the comfortable rooms, and especially the attentiveness and genuine friendliness of the staff. It realy seemed there was no need to large or to trivial for any one of them to take care of. The location was easily walkable to some terrific low key restaurants that bustled despite the neighborhood emptying out for the week-end so it was still a vibrant NYC experience. We were particularly impressed by the barista who made sure to make us some terrific coffee in time for our early ride start and the bellhops who took such good care of storing our bikes. I'd love to come back soon.
