“Lovely hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

We stayed here for seven nights with our five year old daughter. The staff are very accommodating and helpful. The hotel is beautifully designed. Food was delicious. Location was slightly disappointing. We often found it difficult to find food nearby for our daughter especially as the hotel didn't offer a child menu...

We had to request extra coat hangers and our main criticism is that the hotel is really set up for people who are staying for one or two nights. We were travelling for part business and part pleasure and for seven nights there wasn't enough space for us to keep all our clothes.

In summary we really enjoyed staying here. However in future I would probably go back to staying in Greenwich Village or Soho due to more going on in the area.

We stayed at the Nomad during a honeymoon trip to NYC. Part of our criteria when searching for a hotel was that we wanted to avoid somewhere so popular as a bar/restaurant venue, that as staying guests we felt sidelined. Although the Nomad did have an extremely popular and oversubscribed restaurant (and the bar was packed on busy evenings) we were always given some preferred treatment when booking, which was really appreciated.

This was particularly valuable because the area surrounding the hotel is very much an "up and coming" district (as we'd call it in London), and isn't exactly surrounded by upmarket restaurants. You will find great pizza and lunchtime food, but for every restaurant there are about a dozen "wholesale only" costume jewelry stores. This doesn't strecth far though; the flower district is a few blocks away, and there are three different metro lines within a ten-minute walk (one being right on the junction where the hotel sits). The flatiron building is a few minutes' walk.

We had an "atelier" room. It was beautifully decorated, with a varnished wooden floor, flowing curtains (plus blackout shades), a huge clawfoot bathtub and separate WC. It was by no means a very large room, but had a high ceiling and large windows overlooking the neighbourhood so felt spacious. There was (of course) a large TV. One of the only things I felt a bit lacking in the room was that the LG TV has such naff built-in speakers that the volume has to be constantly adjusted depending on what you're watching, and even at almost full volume, the sound quality means a lot of the effect of a film, for example, is lost.

All the staff gave us impeccable service. The dark, chic decor and layout of the hotel give it almost a mysterious atmosphere; there are no fluorescent-tube lines corridors here, but rather dark hallways with twists and turns, with the gym accessible through a practically unmarked door. Even the housekeeping staff walk around with what appear to be designer tote bags. The desk staff are a suave blend of formal and witty, with thin ties and thick rimmed glasses. Walking off the street into the hotel, you definitely feel like you are staying at a luxury place.

We would definitely go back here (it would definitely have to be for a special occasion!) and recommend highly to others.

We spent 3 days in NYC for our honeymoon. The Nomad hotel made our stay magical.
We particularly loved the view, the general style, the bath in the middle of the room and the location (next to the Empire State Building).

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.

Room Tip: I got an interior room. Lower rooms that face the street are going to be loud.

We ate the truffle-stuffed chicken in the restaurant and it was the greatest chicken I've ever had in my life. Truffle-stuffed, with like, some other crazy stuff involved - they bring it table-side, and then they take it away and cut it all up and plate it. Amazing.

the room had a separate room with a desk/workspace... Spacious, a true luxury in NYC!
of course, my window had the view of a wall half a meter away, but then again, it's NYC!
The bar and restaurants are pretty happening.

Stayed at The Nomad for four nights and hated to leave. The location is good, walking to the Flatiron area attractions (Eatily), the Highline (a bit of a hike), Chelsea galleries. And near two subway stations with access around the City (had to connect to other lines at times.) Also central if you are taking car service or taxi.

The staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and strive to please. Most know the area well and can direct you to some great spots.

The room was decent size - we had an inside room which was very quiet, the bathroom was good and there was a little desk area that was useful. The lobby is busy and not large; went to The Ace around the corner for early morning coffee and snack.

The food at their in hotel restaurant (also called The Nomad) was outstanding, an attraction on its own (have the hotel staff get a reservation for you as it is a bit of a challenge to get a table.) One of the best NYC meals we have had. The also have "The Library" which is a good place for drinks.

All in all a great property and location.
