It's one of the best hotels we've ever stayed. Everything is great, enjoyed our stay for three nights. Great value in NYC. Complimentary luxurious toiletries. Beautiful deco, amazing staff, excellent service and excellent location. Bed and pillows are comfy. Nothing to complain at all. We love this hotel and will definitely stay there again.

This is the perfect location for any activities in lower Manhattan. On a narrow side street, and with a European façade, it's a refreshing change from the chains. The lobby and staff are first rate, and the surrounding block has every amenity (including a hardware store). The rooms are spacious and quiet. Room rates are below market, making it an excellent choice for business and vacation travelers.

Room Tip: The superior grade rooms have loftier ceilings, adding to the sense of spaciousness.

I recently stayed at Gild Hall this past weekend of 7/21 and I must say this hotel is amazing. The location and esthetics of the place is 2nd to none. The staff and services are great.

I will definitely recomend this hotel to anyone who is looking for a beautiful place to stay in NYC.

My mom and I stayed at the Gild Hall for 7 nights while we were on vacation in NYC! We shared a Superior King room which is their smallest room and we didn't feel cramped at all. The bed was great, the pillows were comfy, the bathroom was gorgeous. Overall we really loved the decor of the whole hotel, we were a little worried with the whole modern/masculine hunting lodgeish feel but it was a lovely space.

The staff at the front desk was wonderful! They gave us great suggestions for activities and food in the surrounding area as well as the other boroughs. Overall they were just a pleasure to work with.

The hotel is on the smaller side with only 18 floors and about 8 rooms on each floor. We enjoyed this part because we didn't hear any foot traffic from guests or any maid traffic the entire stay. Very quiet and nice to come back to at the end of the day.

Our only complaint (if you can call it that) was that the bathroom didn't have a fan which made for a muggy room after showering. But with 10 minutes of the AC running it was back to normal.

Room Tip: We requested a room on a top level knowing that the NYC street noise can sometimes filter in. Howeve...

We stayed here for our son's orientation weekend for Pace University. The location was great, the staff was helpful and the lobby bar was fun! We had dinner at Felice (Itatlian restaurant in the lobby) our first night when we got in (no time to go out anywhere) and we were so impressed (props to our server, Josie (sp?) for a great evening). A great funky little hotel - - loved the vibe. While the rooms are nothing to write home about, they are clean, the bathroom is a good size (with great water pressue in the shower) and the bedding is nice. All in all, a great find.

Great location in lower Manhattan. Right by Fulton Stn so easy access to 2,3,A,C trains. Pier 17 & South St Seaport are minutes away by foot. As is City Hall & Brooklyn.
Front desk staff are friendly and helpful. Room was clean, though not much of a view from my 12th floor room. The masculine theme of dark wood, leather and plaid suited me just fine. The theme of a hunting lodge is found in the lobby & bar as well.
As with most big city hotels free wifi is only in the lobby.
