Designed by Jim Walrod and artwork from Slim Aarons, the hotel provides eclectic decor with dark mahogany and red accents exuding an intimate atmosphere. Gild Hall effortlessly blends classic European sensibility with chic American style, providing a charming lower Manhattan hotel experience just steps from Wall Street. Felice Ristorante & Wine Bar located onsite offers authentic Tuscan fare complete with one of the best Italian house wines bottled from Frattoria Sardi Giustiniani, the owner's vineyard in Lucca.
