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.
How to Get There
Gabriel and Carlos were amazing ! Thank you for the great service and making our New York trip memorable !! Will definitely be returning and recommending Arlo NoMad! Also the food on the main floor is delicious ! Thanks again
The best. Customer service. The best. Bartenders. The best. Baristas. The best. Front desk. Omg. Had the greatest experience here. Small room with a bunk bed but it was so cool. Great showers. Stay here. It’s awesome. We’re back in September.
Arlo NoMad was an awesome hotel from the minute we arrived until the minute we departed! Caroline at the front desk went out of her way to make us feel welcome. Cocktails in the library was a perfect way to take a break after a full day of sightseeing. The rooms are clean, modern and comfortable. Centrally located, it was perfect for our urban adventure in NYC!
I just returned from a week long holiday in NYC and staying at Arlo Nomad make my trip even worth remembering. It's a true boutique hotel with a free happy hour for the guests and a rooftop with awesome view of Manhattan. Starting from the check-in and to the check-out, everything was PERFECT! Steven Lantigua gave us a complimentary upgrade for a special occasion for which I was traveling with my partner. The room has great views overlooking the stunning Empire State building and good size room to easily accomodate two people. The bathroom was rather spacious and toiletries were really nice too. Upon arrival, we found a bottle of prosecco and chocolate to welcome us for the special occasion. It was incredible. We were also offered 20% discount on food and beverages at the hotel restaurant which also offers really nice food. Given it's a nightmare to get a reservation anywhere in Manhattan, it was super good to have the hotel restaurant. The lounge area of the hotel is cool with nice decor and chilled vibe. I really enjoyed staying at the hotel and can not recommend enough for anyone to stay there too. Try to book via the hotel site directly which offers great discounts and deals. Have fun!
Just back from Arlo NoMad after 3 night stay. All I can say is wow wow wow.
I was a bit nervous as I’d had to book secretly for wife’s 40th but no need From arriving late and very tired on Wednesday to a very friendly welcome staff simply are the best. Got given our room and simply enquired if we could possibly go a little higher which was greeted with come and see us in morning and see what we can do. Room was lovely clean and well laid out and beds so comfortable.
Next morning popped down and enquired about going higher and was told to come back in afternoon to see what they could do for us. Left bags packed and came back for the news just to get better than ever expected bags moved. They had moved us to 29th floor and opened curtain to see Empire State just the best view of such an iconic building.
Afternoon detox in bar is great chance to chill out and have wine and nibbles on house.
Bar staff lovely friendly and welcoming.
The whole experience of this hotel is amazing and just added to the holiday. I could recommend this hotel to anyone you will not regret it.
Just need to save up and we will be back as soon as possible.
One final comment they also recommend us a private transfer back to airport as we didn’t want the pre booked minibus as took too long. This was another bonus as lovely safe transfer in comfort and not to expensive
Thank you for making this so special for my wife and I.
