A Hyatt Privé property and part of the Thompson Hotels collection, the Gild Hall presents itself as a hotel, but it could also be a club or even the headquarters of a fraternity, in this case of traders or financiers. The Gild Hall is located in the heart of New York’s financial district, just a stone’s throw from Wall Street. The hotel is the work of designer Jim Walrod, famous for his ochre tones and mix of leather and dark woods, all of which feature throughout the Gild Hall’s facilities.
Amenities: The hotel has 130 rooms, each with a different design but with the same palette and tones. Bicycles are available for touring the area. As part of its facilities, the Felice Restaurant has become a popular spot for employees who have had to return to their offices in the area, as has the La Soffitta bar, a small enclave with just 35 seats.
Business and events tips: Guests at the Gild Hall are basically on a mission: to make the most of their business travel, and everything at the property is geared toward that, from a concierge specializing in business services to digital check-in and the coziness of the meeting rooms. For those who are members of some of the Hyatt Privé or Hyatt Globalists benefit programs, there is access to room upgrades, as well as the ability to check in earlier and check out later.
What’s nearby: The hotel is within walking distance of Wall Street, as well as One World Tower. Also, about a 10-minute walk away is the Blade lounge, an executive helicopter service.
Regular rate (one stay Sunday through Thursday, Premium Room with 1 king-size bed): $1,983.
Location: 15 Gold St., New York, NY 10038, USA
