“Having your own bedroom feeling in the heart of New York”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

This is a special place, I think the real and only boutique hotel that actually fits the definition and they do it with luxury.

We stayed for 4 night after thanksgiving, at prices that are just slightly to any average three stars hotels in the city, but once you enter you know you are not going to regret it.

We stayed in one of the salon king room and the room was very spacious (yes! Spacious in New York) and very stylish... From the velvet couch, to the furnitures, to the bathroom and the art on the walls. It gives the feeling that every room was designed singularly in the details and that gives you the feeling of being in your own bedroom in the city.

The staff is exceptional, from the moment you check in all the way to the end. They do not wear normal hotel staff clothes, but are rather well dressed and stylish. Also the fact that every member of the staff introduce himself properly before going to business is a very nice touch.

The hotel comes with a restaurant that everybody only speaks well of (unfortunately we could not try it) and a very nice bar, which allows you to avoid taxing down to the Meatpacking in the evening if you are feeling having a New York night.... It's right downstairs.

I can only hope the prices will not spike up, as this is an I will return promise :)

Room Tip: We stayed in 702... Great room with a view And no buildings in near distance

We live in Manhattan but decided with my wife to get a no kid week-end and booked a Grande Room @ the Nomad

We chose the Nomad for its style (we are French and it would remind us a famous Paris hotel called Hotel Costes) and to get a table at the restaurant for diner (we tried before 10 times to get a reservation without any success)
We got a very nice room with nice decoration and high ceiling. We wanted to be quiet and we were.
Have however in mind that if you have a room on the low floors (we were on the second ), you don't get the street noise but the one of the subway.
For breakfast we woke up to lately to go to the restaurant so we went to the librairy which is very cozy.
We spent a very nice break

Excellent experience in NYC. Newer hotel designed by famous French designer and one of the most comfortable rooms ever. Claw foot tub and great shower, perfect after a long day of sightseeing and lots of walking. Did not feel like a typical hotel room and the bed was wonderful. Loved this place.

We went to travel around America with few business partners, we decided to try out all the Michelin three mission stars restaurants in whole August(New York only)!! Because we are all big foodies! This hotel comes out is the our favorite ever! we loved chatting to waiters, loved their professional attitude for service. And very good knowledge of food and wine!
Their signature dish truffle chicken for two is just beyond amazing!!! I loved every single dish I had! Cocktail list is pretty average, so skip that.
Did i mention how amazing this hotel looked?! Great location too~
In the end, this hotel is combination of awesomeness!!! LOVE IT!

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).
