The Vibe: Quietly handsome.
The Area: Located in the Financial District – a.k.a. Wall Street – on Gold Street, a narrow road that begins at Liberty Street and ends at the Brooklyn Bridge, and is within walking distance of Lower Manhattan’s top sights and attractions.
The Vibe: The Gild Hall is masculine, woodsy and awfully handsome, the spaces feel more like a stylish country cabin than a hotel in Downtown Manhattan. An assortment of abstract photography by artists including New York-based Rajmohan Fotograf highlight beautiful subjects in unexpected places; Maryland artist Llewellyn Berry, who specializes in representational imagery; and Venezuela-born Tony Vazquez-Figueroa, whose concentration is in both photography and mixed media.
Suite-Me-Up: The masculine rooms and suites provide a juxtaposition of an understated, classic style and bold, modern elements featuring a mix of neutrals, browns and taupe accents, and a dark-stained trim is found throughout the spaces. Warm gray tones accompany a geometric-patterned accent wall adjacent to the bed’s tufted leather headboard and camel accent colors at the wainscoting, while flannel drapery accentuates the room’s height. The King Suite houses artwork from American photographer Slim Aarons, while the Thompson Suite includes a full bar, dark leather sofas and custom lounge chairs, in addition to a standing clawfoot tub in the bathroom.
