@jack_lafayette: Ok so real talk: that poll (and I assume most of the votes) were done before we had a ton of information on the halls themselves. This includes layout/more screenshots/etc. I know personally my opinion has changed simply because it seems Gilded Hollow is more compact in layout. Not to discount that thread, but perhaps once we get the ball rolling post launch we can just sort of straw poll the active players and see if we get the same result.
Edit: forgot to add this link, which is a pretty cool comparison write-up
