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!
