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
Great hotel centrally located close to subway with fantastic staff. We stayed 6 nights on a trip down memoray lane and this is by far the best hotel in NYC I ever stayed at. Cozy, trendy, eye to detail with excellent service from staff.
I had the opportunity to stay for 5 days at the hotel. The place is very quaint and trendy. The bed was super comfortable the staff was extremely pleasant.
I ordered room service the first morning for breakfast and they bring the food in containers and bags, so the food comes all soggy and looking sad. So if you are hungry, make the effort to go out at all costs.
Be prepared to be awaken by the housekeeping staff as they slam doors and all kind of things at 730a everyday.
So if comfort and room service are not important for you, then by all means stay there.
I recently stayed in made hotel with my mum and sister in one of their double rooms. Although the room itself isn’t huge and not much hanging space , it was perfect for us as we were out for most of the day. The location could not have been better, we could literally walk everywhere, the neighborhood feels safe too. The staff were friendly and efficient and very welcoming, we arrived welcomed by a bottle of wine as we were traveling for my mums 50th. The hotel is clean, warm and has a very relaxed atmosphere throughout- making it the perfect place to relax after a busy day in the city. The only remark I would make is that there would be a wider bar menu available , such as charcuterie and cheese boards. We would have loved to enjoy some cheese with the wide variety of wines offered downstairs. Other than that it was all perfect and would visit again no problem. Thanks to all the staff at made hotel.
