My teenage daughter and I stayed 3 nights in August in a salon room (no. 902).
We loved it: huge room, lots of windows, great view, wonderful details and artwork, excellent food, excellent service, good location, immaculate.
For more details of our stay, read on:
The room was huge (at least 400 sq. ft) with high ceilings, a wide entrance hall and 4 big windows.
There were lots of great details: rough hewn wood floor planks, black velvet sofa, pressed glass ceiling lamps, tole wastebaskets, tooled leather headboard with brass tacks, and hand-selected works of art that included vintage postcards, mounted butterflies, and an assortment of old prints including botanicals and others. The artwork arrangements, hung asymmetrically and, in some cases, really high up, were so much fun to look at!
The king bed seemed extra wide. It was extremely comfortable and the linens were soft.
The view from the room with dual aspect windows was great. Three windows faced SE with a panorama of red brick buildings, and one window faced NE with a view of the Empire State building.
Our room had a divided bathroom; on one side of the room was a toilet and sink and on the other side, a shower and sink. The shower/sink bathroom was a little small with very little counter space.
This room was absolutely quiet with no street noise.
The hotel is in the flower district, not a super pretty neighborhood. But, it is close to public transportation. We usually took the no. 1 train which is a couple of long blocks away. We also walked to High Line Park, Chelsea Market, and Donut Plant. There is Maison Kitsune shop attached to the hotel where you can find French clothing, Aesop bath products, and Heeley scents.
Youngish and with the cool factor. They wear a non-uniform uniform, charcoal slacks with a white button-down. Everyone at the front desk is also a concierge and can give excellent advice about where to visit/dine. Lots of enthusiasm. Diverse group. Unpretentious.
I made the reservation directly with the hotel and requested a salon room with a view of the Empire State building. My request was honored.
This hotel is immaculate.
Casual and chic.
We had dinner in the Atrium; lemon and king crab pasta (tangy and buttery) and their signature dessert, Milk and Honey (ice cream with freeze dried milk and honey chips).
We also had room service with the same restaurant menu. I really enjoyed the fluke starter and slow-cooked sea bass entree. The order arrived in about 10 minutes. Excellent.
The lobby is dark and you share it with the MANY people who come to NoMad to eat at their restaurant. The elevators should require a key card to operate because as it is, anyone could walk in off the street and get in the elevators without being seen.
