“Excellent!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

We live on our boat but we were coming into the city on the ferry from Liberty Landing Marina in Jersey City to see a play ("Sistahs" at St Luke's -- great) so we wanted to spend the late night in town. We stayed at Gild Hall and LOVED it. The financial district is quieter on weekends (perfect for us) but the hotel bar and adjoining restaurant (Felice, Italian and wine bar -- very good) were busy and fun. Our room was a good size, clean, comfortable and I liked the design and color palette. If you are looking for things to do in that area, there are plenty, especially now that the 9/11 Memorial and Museum are open but, in addition,there are many ferries going to many places (Brooklyn, Liberty State Park, Statute of Liberty etc). You can't beat the bike ride up the Hudson River Greenway (the path up the East River is more disjointed). I believe the hotel has bikes (we rode ours from the ferry and they stored them for us downstairs). Cab it or easy subway ride up to plays, Time Square, Central Park, shopping, etc. BUT the best part was the staff -- smart, pleasant and beyond helpful. I'm looking for an excuse to go back soon!

Room Tip: All good from what we could tell.

We got a great price on a hotel in the Financial District because it was the weekend. This is a great location for exploring the southern tip of Manhattan. It is close to the World Trade Center (and the Century 21 store across the street from the memorial) and the Seaport, Staten Island Ferry and within walking distance of China Town.

The hotel staff were very helpful and accommodating. There is a wine bar and restaurant that we didn't visit but it was very busy. The room was large and the bed was very comfortable. the bathroom is well appointed. It felt luxurious.There is free WiFi in the lobby.

We took advantage of the hotel bikes (one speed, not great but adequate) and explored the bike paths along the water. There are Citi Bike stands throughout as an alternative. We rode across the Brooklyn Bridge (a great view but very busy on Sunday with pedestrians). There are some Citi Bike stands on the Brooklyn side.

Room Tip: We were on an upper floor at the end of the corridor from the elevator (141) and it was large and br...

I recently stayed at Gild Hall for the first time. Everyone was very pleasant and made us feel welcome, the room was beautiful and comfortable, and it was the ideal location from the office (I was in NY for business). I have recommended the hotel to my colleagues, and will definitely stay there again.

I stayed here during Memorial Day weekend. The hotel was close to several train lines and easy access to everywhere else. The hotel staff was very friendly. They offered a lot of advice about the local area. The room was comfortable. I would stay here again!
