Forgive me if this is a long review but there is much that I have to say about this hotel. My wife and I stayed here on our honeymoon and I am going to separate this into two parts because of the two separate rooms that we stayed in.
The first 3 nights of our stay we were in The Atelier, their second tier room. When we first entered we struck by the beauty of the reclaimed wood floors, the artwork on the walls and the sheer coziness of the room. At 370 sq. ft. there isn't much to play with but whoever designed this room sure packed a punch. The king size bed with leather headboard was one of the most comfortable I've ever slept in. The set up of the sink and shower behind the room divider was absolute genius, giving the room a larger feel than it really had, and the claw foot tub by the window was not only a romantic touch but also gave the room an intimate old world feel that I have never felt in a hotel room before. No details in this room went overlooked, from the artwork on the walls to the luxurious bath amenities that were provided.
The last two nights of our honeymoon we decided to splurge on the suite and we were glad we did. I can't even begin to explain how amazing this room was. The bathroom was huge, with a double sink, claw foot tub and walk-in shower that could hold a small gathering. A cozy living room led to an oversized bedroom with a king bed at one end overlooking three oversized windows at the other. A nice touch was the bottle of champagne that was provided to us in both rooms the first night!
Truly an experience that we would never forget The Nomad provided us with a mix of New York and Parisian charm and style that we have never seen available at other hotels. Be warned that the bar downstairs is one happening spot, even on a Tuesday night, so if you're looking to hang out there grab a spot early. The mixed drinks are worth every penny. Definitely try the Jive Turkey. I still can't stop thinking of how I felt like an international spy when drinking it. The restaurant is amazing...and expensive. Still if you splurge on a dinner anywhere do it here. I don't think you'll regret it. It's also been known to have a celebrity pop in as well, although we didn't spot anybody while eating there. The staff is very kind and responsive to all your needs, from providing an emergency sewing kit when I had a button dilemma right before we were leaving to the theater, to providing a vase and arranging and delivering the flowers I had bought for my wife from a wholesaler down the street. Definitely give them a look see...some of the best flowers I have ver seen. The location is very NYC...busy and a little rough. Still Madison Square Park is just a few blocks away, the N/R train is right at the corner and the 1/9 is just two blocks away and the Empire State Bldg. is about a 10 min. stroll. The hotel as a whole has an electric vibe that cannot be denied. Whether its because its new or because it just has that soul inherent to it is yet to be decided. Personally I feel this hotel will truly stand the test of time. Can't wait for our next visit. Surely one of our new favorites!
