We often seek out smaller, more intimate hotels -- places that our friends have never heard of -- which led us to the NoMad. There is a subdued, somewhat eerie ambiance on entering the lobby. Dark, quiet tones abound. We checked in on a hot, humid afternoon and felt soothed just walking through the door. The desk was well staffed, so we were immediately accommodated. The young lady who checked us in could have been more welcoming, but, from that point forward, the staff was excellent. The room was nicely appointed, with numerous original framed pieces. The large, claw on ball tub was in the room itself (the bathroom was quite small) which we thought a bit odd, but we soon became accustomed to it. The bedding was top shelf. On the downside, the A/C was marginal and there was a hint of subway rumble in our fifth floor room.The rooftop bar staff was great and the bartenders fabulous. We left for dinner a little tipsy, but content. We walked to a restaurant a few blocks away. The neighborhood is jammed with cheap jewellery/t-shirt/cell phone shops and there is a veritable maze of construction scaffolding to be negotiated. It's just no fun walking around this area. On balance, a comfortable boutique hotel that I would visit again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The NoMad Hotel is housed in a turn of the century Beaux-Arts building that has been fully restored to its original grandeur with interiors by French designer Jacques Garcia. The hotel is intended as a fresh take on the classic grand hotels of Europe with a distinct New York sensibility. The design of the hotel was inspired by the Parisian flat of Garcia’s youth. The 168 rooms are residential in feel and decorated in his classic, timeless style. Each room is appointed with hand-selected, richly textured custom-designed furnishings and original artwork. The soaring ceilings throughout the public spaces provide a fine gathering place to enjoy dining, drinking and socializing. ... more less
