NEW YORK—Located in the Financial District’s Colonial-era streets, Gild Hall, a Thompson Hotel, has completed a redesign of its guestrooms and suites, unveiling a new, tailored environment with custom-designed furnishings.
Designed by Bill Rooney Studio, a New York-based interior design firm focusing on luxury hotels and high-end private residences, the 130 guestrooms and suites provide a juxtaposition of an understated, classic style and bold, modern elements. Rooms feature 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, providing scale to the large windows.
Soft leather furniture and accessories, including a bespoke mid-century lounge seat and a tailor-made magazine rack, and a chalk stripe carpet are also new. Guestrooms feature an assortment of abstract photography by artists including New York-based Rajmohan Fotograf, who highlights 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.
Gild Hall’s six suites have also been redesigned and enhanced. A mix of mid-century modern furnishings is paired with a color scheme of grays and tans to create a warm, urban chic environment in the Penthouse, according to the hotel. The space has been reconfigured to accommodate meetings and intimate events for up to 15 people and has a fully stocked bar, dining area with a table for 12, lounge and connecting room.
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.
