Welcome To The Guild

Here at The Guild, we’re on a mission to craft experiences that travelers and renters love, and foster connected communities. Our properties allow for you to live with us full-time or stay anywhere from a few nights to a few months in a fully furnished apartment. Whether you’re a digital nomad exploring new cities, you’re traveling a few days for work, or you want to live in a connected community – we have the option for you.



Upon Arrival

Make sure you download our mobile app via Google or Apple in order to better access the property and your mobile room key.


We are located on the top two floors (49th + 50th) of the Santander Tower. During business hours, you can enter the building off of Elm Street or Pacific Street without utilizing your key or the keypad. If arriving after hours, you will need your virtual key, or the key code texted to you with your room details.


Once in the building, you will want to head towards the elevators that note 48th floor. You will need to utilize the touch pad near the elevator, and await until it tells you which elevator to take (A,B,C…). Once on the 48th floor, there will be another set of elevators that note The Guild - these are our private elevators. These elevators require opening your virtual key and scanning at the reader, then you will be able to select your floor.


As a contactless hotel, we utilize virtual keys. We encourage you to confirm your reservation via our app sooner rather than later. You can download our app now via Google or Apple. Your key will not be active until your suite is ready.
