“New Yorks "Hotel Costes"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2014

Lovely, classy hotel, which is a chip off the ole block from France's Costes!

Fantastic bar with nice eats and great service. Linens are exceptional and comfortable rooms although a little noisy if on street side, normal of course!

One last thing! Ask for JENNA at the restaurant, she is what hospitality is all about!!! Congratulations to who ever hired her!!!!

The decor in this hotel is lovely and very homey. Hardwood floors, first class prints and other drawings on the wall. Claw footed bathtub and separate shower and toilet compartments. A comfortable chair and lamp for reading. Free wifi that truly is high speed. The public spaces are quite pretty. Highly recommend the atrium for breakfast as staff is friendly and surroundings are a great way to wake up. The library space is also quite pretty and a good place for a drink and light food. The staff will reserve a table for you. Staff lacks that "I'm cool and you are not attitude" too common in NYC boutique hotels. For size of room, comfort, good staff, and feeling well taken care of, price is worth it. Would also recommend the hotel's restaurant. Food is delicious and service excellent; inventive food, not like normal hotel restaurant. Ask concierge to reserve for you well in advance. I've stayed in many hotels in NYC and rarely leave one feeling so well-taken care of and eager to return.

Room Tip: Suggest one of the atelier rooms for size and wonderful tub.

Think hardwood floors, French milled soaps, separate lavatory/shower a la European with white linens and comfortable beds and you've got the NoMad. While much higher price than some of the chain hotels, I'd say its worth the extra money. Let me describe my stay, which was on business travel, but I'd return for personal time as well.

At first you enter the NoMad through a non-descript black awning on Broadway near 27th. Greeted at the door, a confusing layout to find the front desk to check in. I arrived in the morning and was on my way to the office when they told me they actually already had a room available for me. Bonus.

Room was neatly appointed with pictures and postcards all framed depicting various towns in France - I stayed on the 12th floor which gave a good vantage point to the city. Layout included a separate toilet on one side of the room (right after entering) with shower and sink on the other side. The bed was the centerpiece I the room with a desk facing the window.

I enjoyed the amenities the next morning - the soaps and shower goods are great, not too overpowering on the scent and you feel clean and refreshed. Breakfast from room service was great, tried the oatmeal, mushroom omelette and breakfast sandwich on consecutive days and enjoyed them, though honestly I couldn't eat the entire breakfast sandwich as duck sausage is certainly an acquired taste early in the morning.

I lived having drinks in the library, where tables are reserved for VIPs and hotel guests.

I did have issues with the internet on my various devices and the room phone, but the hotel's staff and contracted IT firm got it sorted out after about 30 mins and two phone calls. I loved the personalized touch with follow up from the staff after my visit.

Looking forward to staying here again and recommend that other travelers give it a try. You won't be disappointed - if you are, just tell the staff, I'm sure they'll do their best to make sure you have an enjoyable stay.

Really enjoyed the stay. The salon king room is very spatious, even with a twin rollaway. When you enter the room you do not feel you are in a cold, homogeneous hotel room, instead I felt as if I was in my own apartment room in NYC. Bathroom toiletries by Argo, loved them. The bed sheets were very rough! Would have liked to have drawers, a coffee maker and an extra luggage stand since I had to place my luggage and clothing on the chairs and sofa. For me the hilight was the restaurant! Divino!

We had before a dining experience at the Nomad and we were enchanted by the decor and ambiance. Staying at the Nomad is a little bit different. Yes the food is still good and the staff atentive. Now the location is not the best neither for shopping or attractions. Madison Square Garden is 10 minutes walking but the streets surronding the hotel not very fancy. You have subway just in the hotel corner, you should use if you stay there. Rooms are nice and spacious but lacking amenities and a pool. The Gymn has about 6 elements and is small. Could be crowded in the morning. Our room temperature were difficult to stabilize so the first two nights we have to complain the reception. staff was candid and offered help but still it was not fixed at the first chance. Street noise at night could be disturbing. Somehow overpriced for the value you will be getting.

NOMAD

This is a hotel of the moment. Saunter into its moody lobby and you immediately know you are in with the in-crowd. The international flavor of the reception staff; the shades of grey and black on the arriving guests; the prices on the breakfast menu. But don’t be put off. This is a classy and a comfortable and a chic place to be. Door staff welcome you warmly. Reception is swift and polite – if a little lacking in charm. That would be uncool.
My room, on the 10th floor, owed a deal to the Belle Époque – claw-footed bath in the room, dark furniture, glass-shaded lights – and it feels like a touch of luxury. Big and quality bed. Cleaning efficient and crisp. The space itself bigger than many New York hotel rooms, it feels good value too. The location is terrific, with a view from my room to the Empire State Building towering above me, you could not dream of a more New York place to be in New York. Room Service is quick and reasonable and polite. Downsides? Well - breakfast is a bit of a fuss. The restaurant is high on the list of places to meet for social or business in NYC, just now, so even hotel residents need to queue. And then the menu – well it’s all a bit fussy. Depends on your taste, but if what you crave is a classic stack of pancakes and bacon then just round the corner is the Ace Hotel, which offers a wide ranging breakfast menu at a great price. And that is the way to use the NoMad – a great place to stay, a lovely bar to come back to at the end of the evening, and chic and helpful staff. Indulge the space, I understand the dinner is very special – just be happy to breakfast out.
Ask for rooms that look towards the Empire State and preferably on a higher floor.

Room Tip: Choose a room that looks to the Empire State, and on a higher floor.

Very popular bar and restaurant with the locals so make sure I reserve a table for dinner if you are a hotel guest. Arrange tube staff and great food and service in the restaurant. Great penthouse rooftop space for private functions.
Rooms are small ( it's an old building) but decor is great with original wooden floors. Generally the lighting in public spaces is very dim but that is part of the vibe.
Very cool. Will be back.
