Gild Hall Hotel is a luxury boutique hotel in New York from Thompson Hotels. It is located steps from Wall Street in downtown New York City.
Whether it’s an advantage or a disadvantage is somewhat in the eye of the guest, but one thing’s for sure: the most notable feature of Thompson Hotels’ new Gild Hall is its location. Just a few hundred yards from Wall Street, this is deep in the heart of the financial district, a place that not too many years ago used to turn into a ghost town by about seven in the evening.
It turns out bankers and brokers have plenty of taste. Forget about tired Nineties minimalism — this place is full of character, right down to the split-level library and champagne bar, complete with fully-functioning books (pages and all) and clubby leather sofas. This, one imagines, is where the masters of the financial universe come to unwind after the closing bell.
There’s a whiff of nostalgia upstairs as well, the typically stylish guest rooms done up in dark masculine colors, with leather headboards behind the beds. Gild Hall carefully walks the line between fashionable boutique and out-and-out luxury hotel, a line you may have noticed all the Thompson hotels stick close to. Another reward for those who aren’t shy about exploring the lowest of Lower Manhattan is the Libertine, the new restaurant, designed in a Seventies tavern style — again, as far from glossy stockbroker minimalism as it gets.
New York City,
