    Historical Traveler Reviews Gild Hall - A Thompson Hotel New York City

    The Gild is a gem

    from

    I just spent 2 nights at Gild Hall over a holiday weekend & it was fabulous! It is still under construction, but we hardly noticed They are operating with a temporary lobby & no restaurant, but we never spend time in either at any hotel. The room was terrific. We booked through quickbook ($117/night) & were upgraded upon arrival. The king was spacious & very nicely decorated. The bath was beautiful with marble & glass tile. The bed was the most comfortable mattress I've had in a hotel. The best part of the stay was the excellent service. All the staff couldn't have been more friendly & helpful. We were concerned that the neighborhood would be dead over the holiday weekend, but we were pleasantly surprised. It's an easy walk to the Seaport & subway. The Gold Street Diner across the street was great for a quick bite & had a nice bar & there's a good 24 hr grocery around the corner. After staying in the Village, midtown or the Upper West Side every time I come to NY, it was a lovely surprise to discover this neighborhood. Gild Hall is my new favorite hotel in Manhattan. My only criticism is the entrance is on Plat and the signs on Gold are minimal. Once we found it, we loved it!

    Lovely Room, Great Location, Great Staff - but...

    from

    Just stayed at Gild Hall 1/25-1/27. I loved the location b/c the hotel was near the TKTS booth at the South Street Seaport, and there were lots of subway stops and food markets around every corner. The room was very nice -- tall ceilings, turn-down service, marble bath w/Fresh brand toiletries. I got a $117/night rate through Quikbook b/c the hotel is under renovation. The only thing that MIGHT be an issue is the thick smell of fresh paint in the room. If you're asthmatic or sensitive to smells, this could be a real problem. The smell never left the room, but it didn't keep me from sleep or anything. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and coffee and pastries were available in the lobby in the a.m. I'd stay there again in a second - but I don't think I'll be able to afford it once the renovation is complete.

    Loved Everything

    from

    I was little worried because I didn't expect to get this hotel in priceline. Actually location is not the best cause not easy to find at first time. But After Stay, All good memories.

    There was no lobby yet, But staff was very friendly. Room was Incredible! Very Nice & Comfortable beds, Flat-wide screen TV, Radio & Alarm machine which accepts Ipod! Bathroom was very clean and sophiscated. Even there were bathrobes. this was not 3-star hotel. For me, It was 4.5-star quality hotel.

    Although there was some construction noise, It stopped after 6 or 7 pm. Actually this is not the matter because Either for business or travel, no one would be in the hotel room afternoon if you're in New york!

    There is 24-hour-open Gold St. Restaurant which is across the hotel, if you stay in Gild hall, you can get 10% discount. And actually there is Fulton st. subway station nearby (about just one-minute walk) and about 7~8 subway lines stop there that you can go anywhere.

    Hotel Staff said after march, Construction is over, there will be very fancy lobby & Restaurant. Definitely will stay again.

    Nice Hotel, Great Staff

    from

    I stayed at this hotel over New Years Eve. I believed I payed something like $200 /night. The hotel is under major reconstruction and there is no lobby. Also the views are terrible as you are in the financial district and are surrounded by high rises. There is no room service and the mini bar prices are somewhat high. There are directly across the street from a a parking garage and offer a discount(only $5). It cost $45 for 24 hours before the "discount". The bathrooms are full marble absolutely wonderful. Despite all of these unfortunates I could sense that I was staying at a place that would be well worth a higher price post construction. Overall the GildHall has an amazing and helpful staff and great location.

    Good value, safe, clean, and fun locale!

    from

    This hotel was a great experience overall. While the room is a bit on the small size, as is the case with many hotels in NYC, the bathroom is large, and very well organized and supplied. The room, as well as the entire property was very clean and well attended to. There are extra goodies stationed conveniently at every floor, a communication room with desktops and printers, and the staff were very upbeat and attentive. There are restaurants, and 2 subway stations within a short walking distance as well as cab flow within 2-3 blocks, or just call one from the desk. There is a great convenience store just around the corner with everything you would need, including spirits, fresh organic produce and juices, breads, etc. It is really a mini grocery store, and is open 24/7!

    I would stay here again, so obviously I would recommend this hotel to friends and family. Can't wait to go back!

    Very Nice Stay

    from

    I stayed at Gild Hall from Jan. 6 - 12. The hotel is a bit hard to find, but it's actually in a good area. As most people have stated, it's currently under renovation, so there is no formal lobby or restaurant. The temporary lobby is fine though and the staff is incredible. Probably the nicest staff I've encountered at most of the hotels I've stayed at. The doorman, Guy, was extremely helpful in helping me navigate the city. The front desk was very accommodating. I noticed that the bed in my room did not have a featherbed mattress cover. I called and asked if one could be placed on my bed. Due to the renovations, they didn't have any on hand, but they sent someone out to purchase one for me. The rooms were very nice. Flat panel TV, huge king bed with leather headboard, and very nice marble bathrooms. The only bad thing was that there was occasional construction noise, but not past 7pm. There was also a small issue with the temperature controls in my room. Other than that, I had an excellent stay. I highly recommend this hotel.

    Beautiful room!!!!

    from

    My husband booked a room through priceline for $110.....I was nervous walking through the maze of construction to reach the elevators, but when we got off on the 3rd floor, the hallway was immaculate and freshly painted. Our room was newly renovated with a 40" flat screen, comfy bed, and sparkling clean bathroom. The staff was friendly. Although the restaurant was closed, the hotel is directly across the street from the 24 hr Gold Street Diner. We would definitely go back.

    Great stay despite reconstruction

    from

    Went to NY in Christmas time for a 5 day stay with my girlfriend. I found an offer for the Gild Hall which was much cheaper than other hotels I looked at, and the rooms seemed much nicer. We ended up paying a bit over $200 a night which for Christmas week was about the best we found anywhere in manhattan. There were two things that concerned me, the location in the financial district which is a bit out of the way since my stay was for vacation, and the fact that the hotel is undergoing major reconstruction. But I decided to take the risk since the offer was really good. I am really happy I took the risk. The stay was excellent.

    The hotel is in an alley with nonexistent views except for the building in front and the people that live there. So if you are looking for nice views look somewhere else. The good part of this is that it was very quiet. No traffic or street noise.

    Yes the hotel is going through renovations, there is no lobby, and during the day you can hear some construction noise. But I don't care about the lobby since it's just a passageway towards my room, and during the day we were visiting the city so the construction noise did not affect our visit at all. One day we came back to the hotel a bit earlier for a nap, at around 17:30, and in half an hour all noises had stopped.

    Our room was already renovated. It was big, very nicely decorated, with a big flat TV and internet connection which was great since I had my laptop computer with me.

    With regards to restaurant/meals issues I can't tell you much since I was not planning on eating at the hotel at all. But we found a small coffee shop close to the hotel that served awesome breakfasts, it was closed on the weekend though, one of the bad things of the financial district.

    All the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. I think that the inconveniences of the construction make them more sensitive to client requests.

    The financial district is not the best location if you are visiting manhattan, but it's not that bad either. There was a metro station close to the hotel and sometimes we even walked towards Chinatown and Soho. We enjoy a lot walking when visiting cities so the 20-30 minutes it takes was no problem for us. It's two stops with the metro that takes 5 minutes if you are in a hurry or tired of walking.

    Overall I think we were lucky the hotel was undergoing construction. Thanks to that we got a good price in a great room in a hotel were the staff was nice and helpful. Probably when they are done with the renovation, prices will go up quite a lot and then it might become a bit too pricey. So I would definitely recommend it if you get a good deal on the price.

    A 2-star hotel with 4-star rooms

    from

    I booked this hotel having read that it was a new property - however, I did not realize that they were converting an old building into a new hotel. Hence, shabby entrance, outdated hallways, constant noise from renovations going on. HOWEVER, we were given a renovated room and the room was great. Spacious by NY standards, extremely clean, with a flat screen TV and a nice bathroom. Considering that we paid $145 per night, the room exceeded all expectations.

    Location was not the best for us but it was our mistake since we had not researched enough to realize how far we were from Midtown. A cab cost about $20 US one way. There is a public parking in front of the hotel and it was about $35/ 24 hours.

    Hotel websites suggests that this is a 4-star property and maybe down the road it will be. I would definitely recommend it if you were looking for a cheaper place but cleanliness was a top priority. Otherwise, I would pay a bit more and stay closer to Midtown and avoid the renovations.

    Wow, this can only get better!

    from

    I booked a downtown hotel on priceline and ended up at Gild Hall. I was not informed that the hotel is only "under a soft opening" and it showed! The front desk and the entrance are all temporary. The constant buzz of drills were evident as the hotel is still undergoing construction. The toilet would make strange noises each time it was flushed and the bathroom shower had a very slow drain.

    Decent size rooms, but the location is pretty much away from everything.

    Lots of work to be done to make this a better hotel!

    Quick trip to "The City"

    So everyone knows I'm not a big fan of NYC. It smells like sour garbage, it's hotter than Hades, and it seems to take a minimum of 90 minutes to get in or out of it every time. But that's ok - we love some people there, so we look on the bright side and try to have fun anyway. This time we took a commuter bus into Port Authority in the morning and then started walking uptown with our friend NZ. We stopped in Bryant ...

Any way, I wanted our virgin breakfast out together to be good & this seemed to fit the true American experience I was looking for: over-friendly waitress, lots of lovely ...

    Despite the little sleep we had gotten over the last couple of days, everyone woke up super early and was raring to go.

    We started off by walking around New York to see the sights. We grabbed breakfast and then headed down to Central Park. It was so nice and relaxing walking around Central Park, and it was a hive of activity as people enjoyed the beautiful weather outdoors. Owners were ...
