The NoMad has a dramatic, classy and timeless feel. It's old Parisian yet so fresh and updated. In the rooms, its rich, dark leather headboards and dark wooden tables contrast beautifully against the luxuriously plump, snow white linens. The gorgeous bed blankets are saturated in rich hues. The hardwood floors look and feel like the authentic, antique planks you'd find in old European hotels. On the floor is a beautiful rug (again) with a special antiquity about it. In the bathroom are white and gray marble counters, shiny faucets and mosaic floors all throughout. The website photos are exactly as pictured but I've added a couple more. The Parlor Restaurant (and there are several areas to eat in this hotel) was outstanding!! This Swiss chef has to be one of the most acclaimed in NYC. I don't think I've ever had duck cooked so exquisitely ... yum. The four of us had a couple of meals there and everything was just great--every time.
Unfortunately, the NoMad's service was not that great--not terribly bad, but no where near what it needs to be. Some expert hospitality training would do wonders. One other minor, yet rather frustrating aspect of this hotel is that the lighting in the Lobby, The Library and The Atrium was too dark. We were not the only ones to notice this. Every other eating area was just right--intimate, private and very lovely.
At night we took a cab. During the day it felt pretty safe to walk everywhere, but it's in a run down area at 28th and Broadway. And though within just a few blocks you can be in some really great areas of Manhattan, the actual neighborhood itself is not desirable and it doesn't feel that safe. I really hope this area of the Flatiron District can rise up to the standard of this great hotel.
This is a perfectly wonderful and gorgeous boutique hotel (though too pricey for the neighborhood and the average service), but overall it was a treat for us to be guests for 4 days.
- 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
