“The Good and the Bad”
Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

It is early in a 12 night stay at the Nomad. The good - size of room but it is a salon so should be OK, most of the service has been good, had a great waitress tonight in the Library but prior to that the males are far more engaging and helpful than the females, separate toilet in room is a positive, the view is great and the light in the room is lovely as the rest of the hotel is very dark. The library bar is perfect.
The Bad - The bathroom does not exist ... it is a shower and a small basin, very claustrophobic, smallest bathroom in any hotel I have stayed in around the world. The hotel is very dark, haven't seen a doorman since we arrived but they must be around. Have stayed at Soho grand and at this stage leaning towards the Soho Grand due to location, bathroom and overall service. That may change ...

I stayed in the Atelier Suite; and would highly recommend it. The room was very well thought out with impeccable design and attention to detail (mood lightning, airy feeling, wooden panels, etc). Rooms overlooking the street can be noisy (very common in NYC) and there are many buildings in front of you that can peak into your room (common in the concrete jungle as well). So, if privacy is a concern, you can always pull the drapes. I stayed for a day and a half; they charged me for a half day rate ($198) leaving at 4pm on a Sunday. Too steep for a half day rate considering it is only 4 hours after regular check out time, and they would not waive it. This is not why I gave them a 4 star, however. If not for the awkward neighborhood (flatiron), then I would have considered a 5 star rating. Also, they have a rooftop that is only used for private events - I really wish they can utilize the space. Even if it cannot be serviced, I think having a couple of seating areas for guests to enjoy the weather would be a big plus for NYC. Otherwise, friendly staff and unique decor.

Last Minute reservation for Xmas time. Quaint, classy and cozy hotel. Comfy bed, great linens and good toiletry. As expected we couldn't be picky with our room selection. That said we ended up in a very small room on the back of the hotel sort of feeling. If you open the curtains, there is another building a mere 10 meters away (have been in the US for so many years but still can't get the inch", feet' thingy.) Oh well, the food at the hotel was exquisite. The ambiance of the bar/restaurant was awesome! We had a beautiful Xmas dinner @ the on-site restaurant and I can't thank the front desk enough for the suggestion. Very well located as well. The bellman staff was very very nice and attentive.

Just was looking for a quick overnight stay to visit friends. Found this great boutique hotel that had amazing service, era appropriate decor and HUGE rooms that are so not NYC for a pretty good price. You have to like the 20s look with dark and dreary but mysterious and beautiful. Restaurant is good but pricey. Easy to get anywhere in the city you please. Nice change from being in busy midtown with less noise but not to showy as SOHO or TriBeCa

A must try it out in my book!
Exceptional staff as well!

We stayed in a one-bedroom suite on the 9th floor of the Nomad. The bedroom was large with one wall on the circular corner of the building with many windows, and the style of decor was interesting and unique. Also, the food (from Nomad restaurant) was great and the concierge was very helpful in setting up restaurant reservations.

The only negatives were that the suite's living room was a bit small and the street noise was excessive (but expected on Broadway).

Overall, I would definitely recommend the Nomad!

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.
