We stayed at the NoMad for 3 nights starting August 1st and absolutely loved it! From the moment you walk into the beautiful, dark, and sexy lobby you know your in for a treat. The hotel is in a turn of the centruy Beaux-Arts building that has been faithfully restored. The interiors are done by French designer Jacques Garcia. The interiors reminded me of classic Parisian hotel with a touch of contemporary and old New York.....they are gorgeous!
We had a Atelier room that was stellar. The heavy doors open and to your right is a wonderful, classic, dark mini bar that is well stocked. Upon entering the room you first notice the great king sizd bed with a wonderful comforter and big, plump pillows...then the big windows looking out to the city, and then the claw foot tub ( really nice and relaxing). There is a classic leather chair in front of a floor lamp, a club chair and mahogany writing desk. The floors are maple wood and appear to be original. Nice custom artwork is throughout the room. In front of the bed there is a large flat screen TV and behind the TV is a floor to ceiling velvet and damask paravent (a large seperation panel) that stretches most of the distance of the room. There is a (almost secret) door in this paravent that leads to a water closet with small sink and mirror. On the other side of the claw foot tun is the main sink and walk in shower. There are sconce lamps by the bed and sink and ALL lights in the room have dimmer control which I love a really appreciate. The bathroom is stocked with Argan bath products. Obviously I cannot say enough good things about this room....timeless.
The restaurant Atrium is beautifull and gorgeously designed. The NoMad Bar (classic New York) and Elephant Bar are great places for drinks and socializing. The Library Bar though was my favourite: two stories high with spiral staircases leading to shelves of books lit from behind...a really unique and fun space.
The location of the hotel is excellent. Located on Broadway 5 blocks from the Empire State Building and Herald Sqaure..lots of shopping in the area as well as restaurants. Also, the hotel is conveniently located right next to the 28th St metro station and from here you can take the N,R, line to Time Sqaure (2 stops away..5 mins) or Union Station (2 stops 5mins) and from both of these hub terminals you can go anwhere in New York. There are also plenty of cabs outside.
The service at the hotel is excellent from the moment you enter to the moment you leave. Unfortunately the airline we flew sent our luggage to the wrong city. We arrived at 5 pm at the hotel on a Friday with no clothes and few toiletries other than what we had in our carry ons. We had to go shopping and the hotel staff were perfect in telling us where we needed to go. The airline said they would send our luggage to the hotel once it was on a new flight to NYC and
I spoke with Alisha (spelling?) at the front desk about our problem and she was very sympathetic and helpful and said as soon (and even if) our luggage arrives she would have it sent to our room. Finally on Saturday during dinner around 10pm we got a text from the hotel that our luggage had arrived and was placed in our room. Relief. The next afternoon I saw Alisha (sorry if I am spelling your name wrong) and thanked her. Although our lost luggage was not the hotel's fault Alisha offered us a drink on the house whenever we wished. We took her up on the offer later that evening with a friend joiing us in the Elephant Bar. The bar was quite busy and the bartender messed my drink up so I was offered another drink on the house by Adam (I believe was his name) who was over restaurant and bar in some capacity...a very nice guy. They care about service and making you happy at NoMad. I do not know what exactly is Alisha's position at NoMad but if it is not hotel manager IT SHOULD BE! Thank you for your genuine kindness.
NoMad is an excellent place to stay for location, service,dining, and atmosphere. At night the hotel's restaurants and bars are busy with well dressed, good looking patrons ( I saw several celebrities) and there is a jovial good vibe in the day as well. This is a classy and hip hotel and probably not the best choice for families though I know they would be welcome and treated wonderfully. Thank you NoMad and staff for a great visit...we cannot wait to come back to your beautiful hotel!
