A high-tech hotel catering to a business clientele who appreciate its proximity to the Financial District.
It's hard not to feel hip inside this Thompson Hotel outpost, located in a quiet and shadowy corner of the financial district where cobblestones still line the street. Inside, it feels like ski lodge gone chic, beginning with the lobby, where a two-story library is adorned with a reindeer antler chandelier and animal skin rugs. Jim Waldrod's quirky retro style then flows into the hallways, where black-and-red backgammon-themed walls display color images by high society photographer Slim Aarons. The fitness center spreads out on three levels of the hotel, each one with just a few pieces of sporting equipment, making for intimate workout spaces. The 126 guest rooms pick up the contemporary yet clubby feel of the public areas with furnishings done up in dark wood. There are also tartan throws, robes by Frette and window benches dotted with plush pillows. Bathrooms have modern lines with frosted glass and brass rivets styling the doors and walls. The "Wall Street Journal" arrives in the morning (no "USA Today" found here), and you can read yours over the complimentary buttery brioche and fancy coffee and tea offered in the lobby. Each member of the internationally trained staff --- from concierge to maintenance workers --- does Gild Hall proud.
