“Fantastic Stay at Gild Hall”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

The reviews do not lie. The staff at Gild Hall are exceptionally friendly and helpful. We were greeted enthusiastically and it set the stage for a wonderful stay. The hotel is chic and hip but at the same time comfortable and accommodating - not intimidating or cold at all. Our television did not work properly - one phone call was made to the front desk and in less than 5 minutes someone was at our door to fix the problem. Thank you for a great stay Gild Hall - we will definitely be returning.

Stayed in this hotel in December 2013. The hotel is 2 minutes from Fulton street subway with access to red blue lines so airport and uptown are quickly access able. The hotel staff are friendly and polite alway taking time to welcome you back or offer advice if your heading for the street. The hallways on each floor have picture of Hollywood stars from the past, worth a look. Rooms are clean and the decor is boutique with a positive feel. The bath room partition leaves little to the imagination the screen could do with some modesty panels. Other wise this is a beautiful hotel and location. Great location that I hope to visit again

We loved the hidden hipness of this hotel situated on a small street named Gold in downtown Nyc. It has a very warm & welcoming atmosphere which will remind you of a modern cabin-like feel, and the staff are very friendly too. The rooms were quite suitable for the price we paid, and we enjoyed the restaurant & bar down in the lobby, which added life to the entrance of the property. There are cool restaurants & shops nearby to the hotel, so the location worked for us as well. Overall, a very enjoyable experience from beginning to end!

Room Tip: All rooms seemed to be equally stylish, and well equipped for maximum enjoyment factor. The Penthous...

Gild Hall is now my favourite hotel in the city. From the wonderful scent that greats you upon arrival in the lobby, to the extremely helpful and pleasant staff, to the complimentary prosecco upon check-in...it seemed as if our trip to NYC was off to a really good start. Little did we know that we would also fall in love with the beds, the QUIET, the amazing Tuscan food at Felice, the lobby restaurant. I just can't say enough about this lovely gem of a hotel. There was something magical about calling Gild Hall home for 3 nights-I loved being in the financial district with it's charming non-grid streets, fantastic nearby restaurants and bars, and proximity to the Fulton Street Subway. Thank you Gild Hall for a wonderful stay-see you again!

Room Tip: We asked for a room away from the Elevator Banks and Ice Machines. We got room 66--while there was N...

We stayed here for 5 nights from the 7th dec. Found the hotel round the corner from subway easy trip from the airport. On checking in we were given a glass of prosecco and our room was upgraded :) the lady checking us in was very nice think her name was Violet. Room was very spacious, clean and warm. Half an hour after checking in a bottle of prosecco and a plate of fresh fruit was brought to the room, thank you very much Mr Blaha.
The hotel is in the financial district but within easy reach of all the major attractions by use of the subway or walking.
We always enjoyed walking back into the lobby of the hotel as it had a lovely smell (what is it please?)
The bar and restaurant looked nice and always seemed busy.
Each night a small cake was placed by the bedside,nice touch.
The only negative was the air con was a bit noisy when it kicked in, apart from that we had a great stay thanks.

I was looking for a small boutique hotel. Was afraid that it might comes out with not the appropriate level and was glad to find out that the room were large enough and very clean, staff was friendly and very helpful. The atmosphere is great. close to metro station and enough to dine around.

I went to NYC with my girlfriend for a day trip and found this hotel for very reasonable rate. The ambience of the place is very unique compared to other franchise hotels. It definitely added an entirely new element to our trip to NY. We actually enjoyed staying at Gild Hall more than traveling about the city! The entrance to this place might be a little tricky to find, but with a smart phone and general awareness it wasn't a problem getting there. The lady at the concierge was very helpful in directing us to the nearest subway station and did everything possible to guarantee our good time. This will be the first hotel I look up the next time I visit NYC.
