I stayed at the Nomad during a recent three day business trip. No one will mistake 28th Street for Fifth Avenue, but the location is fun (transitional might be a better term) in addition to being convenient to midtown. The Nomad is one of the few chic hotels that combine a great lobby/bar/restaurant with really good accommodations. The Library, Atrium Restaurant and bar are one of the best combinations in NYC. The lobby is simply a blast. It is the rooms that set the Nomad apart from its ever so hip competitors. I got a salon which was a great size (not huge) with nice finishes, hardwood floors and a big bathroom. I really like the Parisian apartment theme. The staff members were all excellent and accommodating. Those who do not like 28th Street will think that the price is very steep and will want to run back to Midtown. But this is NYC, 28th Street is funky fun, the rooms are great and the lobby/restaurant is one of the best scenes in town. I had a great stay.
