Earthy NoMad jewel combining trendy touchstones (imaginative design, a formidable dining scene) with an exceptionally attentive staff
High-design meets superlative service at developer Sam Gelin’s inaugural hospitality venture, inspired by rustic design details from his favorite Los Angeles haunt, Gjelina. It’s why the NoMad hotel feels like a bohemian sliver of California, plopped into the Big Apple’s intense core. Social spaces abound, from a capacious lobby and an alfresco landscaped terrace (restricted to hotel guests only) to a communal coffee shop, where the long oak table, courtesy of LA-based design firm, Studio MAI, whisks you away from midtown Manhattan. Rooms are charming nests where natural elements, like bronze shelving, hand-painted Japanese tiles, wooden bed frames, and carved stone sinks, set a decidedly crafty tone. Gelin tapped Death and Company alum, Natasha David, to captain the property’s tightly-curated bar program, which include a matter-of-factly christened Lobby Bar, offering a sizable selection of beers on tap, and Good Behavior, a rooftop tiki lounge. And though there are 18 spacious stories to this experience-driven urban escape, it’s the semi-circled crown, adorned with east-facing glass—read: Empire State Building views—that is undoubtedly its most sought-after.
In the Area
“North of Madison Square Park,” as this emerging area is known (NoMad for short), was once nothing but a sea of suits and wholesale shops—and before that, a notorious red light district. But thanks to a recent crop of sleek new bars and boutiques, the city’s creative set is moving in. A cavalcade of brave new restaurateurs are transforming this one shabby micro-hood into what is arguably Manhattan’s culinary epicenter, which now includes a slew of reservations-only spots such as John Dory, an old-school oyster bar; Marta, a modish take on a Roman pizza joint; and one of the world’s most influential restaurants, Eleven Madison Park.
How to Get There
Nice place!!! Friendly staff who give excellent customer service!
Rooms are really clean again credit to the service staff!
Only real down points:
Bar upstairs! Exceptionally nice but expensive and cocktails not worth it! However barman was ok!
Rooms at the rear of the hotel not a great view! So I would ask for a city view!
Other than this 5 star visit! Definitely would recommend!
If you want a change from the corporate hotel in a great location for lots of tourist attractions, is a great choice. We stayed for 3 nights and would definitely return. The first thing you notice is how alive the hotel feels in the busy lobby area. There is a coffee shop and bar / restaurant used by guests and others so it is always busy with a great atmosphere. Breakfast is very good although quite expensive at c.$80 for 3 but the coffee is excellent. The roof top bar is also not to be missed for the views alone. Drinks also quite pricey but the service and location make it a really good experience.
The rooms are small (I know, it is NYC!) with not much room for putting anything away. The beds are low but very comfortable, cleaned well everyday with lovely smelling linen 😊 We would definitely recommend the Made Hotel abc stay again next time we are in New York.
MADE Hotel is one of the best hotels I ever stayed at in NY. It's close to the empire state building and other point of interest. The hotel is nicely decorated, a bit like a loft, industrial. Loved it. Good beds, great shower. The rooms are a bit small, but hey, it's NY!
Breakfast is very good and tasty. The yoghurt with granola is a big recommendation, as are the pancakes. And the coffee from their coffeeshop 'Paper' is to die for. Michelle who serves the breakfast in the lobby bar is sweet, fun and absolutely makes you day! She is a real asset for MADE hotel. But to be honest, all employees are. From reception to housekeeping.
And yes! The food at their restaurant "Ferris" is very good as well.
I will definitely return to this hotel.
MADE is a great hotel with a fantastic vibe. It has a really nice coffee shop on the ground floor and really lovely roof terrace. I went on my birthday and they sent up a bottle of bubbles for us to celebrate. The staff are really, really top class and really nice people.
I didn't give this hotel 5/5 stars though for a couple of reasons. Firstly our room was right next door to the lift so was very noisy all through the night (one night it was really noisy until 3am) and it was lift shaft noise, not just people coming to our floor and the coffee was served in non recyclable cups (a small thing I know but easily rectified).
That said I would definitely go back but ask for a different room not next to the lift!
Let’s make this clear as edging on the Silver Surfer bracket this hotel was not aimed at the likes of us....
but....we liked it! We usually go for modern boutique hotels so this ticked all the boxes in that respect. Bed was extremely comfortable, staff great. Instant chilled, hanging out vibe on entering and warm welcoming staff. Ground floor cafe and bar great for breakfast...lovely pumpkin cake and pastries. Best granola, fruit and yoghurt cereal ever. French fries when we hadn’t eaten (that’s another story) were welcomed on a late night return to the bar! As for the complaints about drawer/ hanging space ..don’t go if you are fancy dressing...I’m sure there are lots of other hotels if wardrobe space is your main priority. There are shelves in the bathroom for stacking and we were fine for a three day trip and just hung a few things up ( there are hooks for coats also).
