“Stylish Hotel at a price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

The NoMad is obviously a trendy hotel because it has a capital M in the middle. And to a large extent it lives up to its capitalisation. The welcome is friendly. The room was very comfortable - boutique in a Louis Quatorze kind of way. Big TV comfortable bed.. The spacious bathroom still did not have a bath and suffered from the usual New York bathroom issue - not a shelf in sight. The restaurant is a hot ticket in NYC as is the bar. We went down for drink one night but had no hope of getting to the bar it was so busy - and you need to book the restaurant. However all things considered its perfectly good hotel. At $425 a night it was probably not top value for money

This boutique hotel is in a convenient location in New York, great for a weekend away. The room was beautifully decorated - hard wood floors, tall ceilings, lovely bay window and a relatively big, well -appointed bathroom. The rooms have a very homey feel. When the reservation was made, we asked for a quiet room, preferably, on a high floor. When we arrived, we were given a suite on the second floor. While it is totally understandable that the hotel may not be able to fulfill requests, the request shouldn’t be completely ignored. This is a fairly busy area so we were immediately concerned about the noise level so close to the street. When we raised the concern we were assured by the hotel staff that after the stores closed, the area was "dead" and there would be little, if any noise. The staff’s assurance was woefully inaccurate. Do not stay on the 2nd floor unless you are a very heavy sleeper. What the hotel staff neglected to say is that the room is above the subway and the area is also far from dead after the stores close. While some degree of street noise is unavoidable in any city, the staff really should have just been honest and allowed us to choose a lower category room on a higher floor or opt to stay elsewhere if nothing was available. In this case, the room rumbled pretty much every time the subway rolled by, often the conductor blows the horn. I don't think the room we were given is suitable as a sleeping room. Despite this experience, we would try the Nomad again – albeit on a higher floor. When we complained about the situation, the hotel staff took action. They were genuinely concerned. Their response shows that they care about their guests and want to improve on the hotel. That earns another try as issues with any hotel can only be addressed after enough guests take the time to point them out. This is a property that listens and cares and from the guest perspective, that attitude is appreciated.
Aside from the room, we did have the chance to have drinks in the library lounge and ate in the restaurant and. The lounge is awkward with spotty service, but their cocktails are inventive and delicious. If you temper your expectations on service, you will be fine. The restaurant layout is a little strange as there is a constant flow of guests walking through to get to the busy bar area. Generally, you can expect your seat to be pumped several times during dinner. The food is fantastic. The menu is creative and the wine list is equally well done. The signature chicken dish is absolutely fabulous but it is the attentive staff that make this place shine.
On the whole, the Nomad has a few hiccups but given their receptive attitude towards guests, the hiccups are easy to forgive.

Room Tip: Avoid the second floor. You will hear street noise and the subway all night long.

We stayed one night on route to Martha's Vineyard for Christmas. Beautiful room with a huge bed and gorgeous bath. The library was interesting and lovely to relax in, reminded me of the Harry Potter movie's.

Our room was very much french inspired, with a delightful clawfoot bathtub in the corner of the room, separate walk-in shower and water closet behind a massive 'room divider.' Very charming, luxurious bed and sheets.

We enjoyed the restaurant and the next day, I met several friends for afternoon tea in the library. What a gorgeous and romantic experience. I highly recommend this hotel.

My husband surprised me for my birthday by booking one night at the NoMad in late December, along with dinner in the restaurant downstairs. I could not have had a more perfect birthday! While the location is a bit odd, in the city as long as you can get a cab or walk to a subway (which is on the corner), it's not a big deal. We had a lovely room which truly maximized it's space - the bathroom was cleverly laid out, complete with clawfoot tub right in the room! Big luxurious bed, walk in closet, even a writing desk. And I couldn't believe how quiet it was at night to sleep! For dinner we were totally pampered by an indulgent menu and a very knowledgeable waiter - the only knock was the beverage service wasn't as attentive as it shyould have been. We will come back in summertime to enjoy the outdoor terrace!

This is a fab hotel in a very central location. We had some minor hiccups with room allocation & air con issues but the way it was dealt with really showed their attentiveness and proactive approach to customer care. I was really impressed. We stayed in 2 rooms in the hotel and I loved them both. The first had a gorgeous bath & the 2nd an incredible view of the Empire State. Stylish and chic with good wifi, great staff & a lovely vibe throughout the hotel. Would highly recommend & return.

Room Tip: I preferred the room with the bath. You can also get views of Empire State - ask for both!

Great neighbourhood! Near off broadway shows and the high line, great walks and a lot of good restaurants around.
Pitty the bar is so crowded, not a chance to get in, It would have been nice if there had been some seats in the room in front of the bar, the hotel has a great charme, the restaurant was great, good food and great ambiance the only really really bad thing was the airco, horrible, I did get a cold the next day, they did try to put it at a lower speed, but no difference, it was really bad.

Room Tip: I loved the view at the front of the hotel, others had a room away from the street, more quiet, but...
