Sleek, stylish boutique hotel in the heart of the city, perfectly located for exploring the best of Manhattan
New York has a new neighborhood – from the same portmanteau-loving locals that brought you SoHo (South of Houston), Nolita (North of Little Italy) and Tribeca (Triangle below Canal), comes already-iconic NoMad. Defined as the area north of Madison Square Park to roughly 32nd Street, with Sixth Avenue on the east and Lexington on the west, this Midtown enclave is a hub for the tech-savvy and the fashion-literate, with a gaggle of startups (it’s a vital part of New York’s "Silicon Alley") and a host of high-end shops – Le Labo and the relocated Rizzoli Bookstore are two. Enter Arlo. The Manhattan-based chain of micro-hotels is bringing its own brand of sleek style to the area, in the form of the Arlo NoMad. As at Arlo Hudson Square, which made a splash in local hospitality circles when it opened in September 2016, the design here is colorful yet minimal; rooms are modest in size ("New York’s latest obsession," according to the New York Post) at 150 square feet, but big in personality with clean lines, pops of color, and teched-out amenities. The real star of the show is Massoni restaurant, which got a shout-out in New York magazine and a profile in Eater; owned by the team behind Pork Slope and Talde, this eatery dishes out fare that mixes highbrow and lowbrow and Italian and American, and along with The Heights bar, on the 31st floor, is looking to become a local destination in its own right.
In the Area
NoMad is being hailed as Manhattan’s newest neighborhood but also dates back to the Gilded Age and retains Historic District status. Gape at the gorgeous Beaux-Arts building, or see namesake Madison Square Park, home to one of the original Shake Shack outposts. Popular restaurants in the area include Hill Country Barbecue and the eateries of Eataly, while there are some stylish boutiques within walking distance, as well. For traveling elsewhere, subway lines abound, or you can take a train from nearby Penn Station to one of Long Island’s quaint towns or hamlets.
