“LOVE this hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2013

I've stayed at this hotel probably 5-6 times now and its been exception every time. Beautiful clean rooms, amazing staff, great food. I highly recommend this place to all my friends. The only problem with this hotel is that it makes other hotels seem horrible by comparison. I wish there was a Nomad in every city I travel to.

3rd of 4 hotels during our 2 weeks stay in NYC. This is a beautiful hotel. If you are looking for a unique hotel which somehow manages to pull everything together without seeming as though they are trying too hard, this is it. We had dinner in the restaurant and the food is outstanding.
Only gripe is the location. There are no nice restaurants or shops, though lots of wholesale shops around which is weird.

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:

Room
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.

Location
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.

Service
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.

Housekeeping
This hotel is immaculate.

Guests
Casual and chic.

Food
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.

Security
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.

Loved my stay here! The interior design inside is fantastic. My friend and I really enjoyed our stay here. The staff were so nice, especially Mark one of the bellmen. He was very nice and knowledgable! Would love to stay here again next time I'm in the city!

Loved it, loved it, loved it! A very unique and fabulously appointed hotel in a great location. I booked through Jetsetter and then tried to change the type of room that was booked. I received conflicting info from the hotel itself and from Jetsetter. When I checked in Bry could not have been more helpful and we ended up in an amazing Grande room. One selling point of this room is the bathtub, which Bry did not tell us is out in open view. This would be a great perk when traveling with your significant other! I have stayed in many hotels in NY and The NoMad is now the top of my list.

Room Tip: The Grande is fabulous.

I've now stayed at this property 3 times in the past year, and it's become a favorite for its uniquely luxurious rooms, convenience, and restaurant.

First let's talk about location.. It's on Broadway and 28th street, and there is a R line subway stop at the corner. A block or two east or west puts you to the green or orange line and that will get you to most destinations in the city without a transfer. Lots of things in walking distance.. Heading south, you get to Madison Square Park (Shake Shack), Eataly, Donut Plant (just west of Eataly), Murray's Bagels a few blocks south west. Going north, you are a short walk to 34th st (Macy's, MSG, ESB), and it's next door neighbor the Ace Hotel, has Stumptown Coffee and No. 7 Sub, in addition to The Breslin.

The NoMads own restaurant is a destination upon itself, with the Chicken for 2 a mandatory choice for first-timers, and thereafter, you'll find a lot of good things on the menu.. The crudités for example, as a snack was a grat way to start a meal, especially paired with one of their house cocktails which are all excellent. I'll spare you a full review of the restaurant here, but it's a destination meal. (Despite the affiliation, however, the hotel does not have any pull at Eleven Madison Park- you are on your own for reservations there) - NoMad hotel guests do have priority at the NoMad restaurant.

The rooms have a NY loft feel, and do not feel like a hotel room. The decor, hardwood floors, wood panel dividers, high ceilings, and color scheme all are really appealing to me. You almost feel like a 1950's era manual typewriter and rotory dial phone would complete the look, but don't worry, as you have all the modern conveniences of flat screen tv, iPod docking station and fully stocked minibar. It's not sensored, and there's usually a little extra room to stock a few bottles of your own water,etc.

The products are from Argon in the bathroom, and I find them very good. Ample towels are provided, and you can usually find at least one massive bath sheet, in addition to the complement of regular towels. Slippers and turndown are provided.

A fitness center is provided with modern technogym equipment on the 4th floor - its nice, and kept up well.

If I'm going to nitpick, the elevators are a little slow, and some of the layouts with the toilet and shower, et are a little weird.. But maybe that layout thing is 'character'..

All in all, I am really impressed with it, and as long as they can keep their rates around the 290 range and not blow upstream, I will keep going back.
