Choosing a hotel in NYC is a difficult task - too many times, you end up in a tiny room, or a place with bad service, or both.
The NoMad Hotel is different. It's brand new (opened in April '12), but does not feel that way. The little reception counter handles all your needs, very efficiently, and you immediately notice the noise from the bar & restaurant on the ground floor - definitely a place to be in NY these days.
Our room (we chose an Atelier room) was surprisingly big and very, very cosy. The free standing classic bathtub is not only a design element, but comes very handy after a day of shopping and running around. The bed was big and comfortable, sleep quality was excellent, even though the room was situated on the Broadway side (6th floor).
We had dinner at the NoMad restaurant (reserve early, it's one of the hot spots in NY). At 7pm, it was already packed with people, but service was quick & excellent, and the food outstanding (the whole roasted chicken with truffle and foie gras stuffing - out of this world!).
Bell captains and doormen were helpful. If there is anything to criticize, it would probably be the timing of the room makeup (a little late some days), and the difficulties of finding a taxi at some times of the day.
Otherwise, it's perfect for any kind of stay in NY - a Subway station round the corner provides quick transport up- as well as downtown, and the room is a nice refuge after a busy day (or night). Highly recommendable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The NoMad Hotel is housed in a turn of the century Beaux-Arts building that has been fully restored to its original grandeur with interiors by French designer Jacques Garcia. The hotel is intended as a fresh take on the classic grand hotels of Europe with a distinct New York sensibility. The design of the hotel was inspired by the Parisian flat of Garcia’s youth. The 168 rooms are residential in feel and decorated in his classic, timeless style. Each room is appointed with hand-selected, richly textured custom-designed furnishings and original artwork. The soaring ceilings throughout the public spaces provide a fine gathering place to enjoy dining, drinking and socializing. ... more less
