Expert review of Gild Hall
The Financial District isn't known for many choice lodgings but Gild Hall, part of the Thompson Hotels group, is one of the few luxury options in the area and it appeals to a certain aesthetic. It's ornate in a manly way, with rich brown leathers throughout the property. Anglophiles will definitely like the design theme.
On historic Gold Street, just steps from Wall Street and the South Street Seaport.
The rooms and suites have 12-foot high ceilings, brass chandeliers and hardwood floors. Jim Walrod designed the custom furniture including the massive tufted-leather headboards and mahogany dressers. The king beds are covered in Italian linens and soft, plaid flannel throws. Bathrooms are roomy with products by local apothecary Bigelow. Munch on Dean & Deluca and Zabar's snacks.
The bi-level lobby is hued in browns and reds. Tufted-leather couches and chairs are the centerpiece but one can't help but admire the books lining the staircase.
The Libertine serves comforting English cuisine with a twist. Its tavern-like design will appeal to locals and tourists alike. The Lobby Bar on the second floor of the hotel is a quieter retreat, perfect for an after-dinner drink.
The hotel doesn't have any leisure facilities.
Service can be a bit formal at times but is still speedy.
Business travelers due to its proximity to Wall Street. Couples and Anglophiles.
Standard rooms are spacious and are the best value for the price.
