Gild Hall NYC: Category 4 in Manhattan


Gild Hall NYC Hotel Review is part of the ongoing TPOL in NYC trip report.

Getting There: The only choice that makes sense to get to the Financial District is the J train after the AirTrain (see JFK AirTrain: Why Mess with Uber to Manhattan?). Prepare to sit for an hour and do nothing with intermittent cell service.

Another work trip in NY means another night trying to find a hotel that won’t break the bank. This time I used my Hyatt Stay Certificate for the only Category 4 hotel in Manhattan.


The hotel is located in the Financial District within walking distance to the zzz Andaz (see Andaz Wall Street: A City Asleep).

Hotel Itself

I arrived at 10AM and like the Confidante Miami, my room was not ready. By 11:30AM, my lame Explorist status didn’t move the needle, and I ended up changing in the restaurant bathroom for my meeting. In between that time, I took a few photos of the hotel with its interesting decor.


I returned to the hotel at 11PM and had to check out by 5:15AM. Here are photos showing the room on the 18th floor, the highest available.


Here is the bathroom that I didn’t use.


This is a cool hotel but I didn’t get to experience it. Using the certificate was a money saver since the cheap options, including the Four Points LIC, was $200+.
