Eclectic Philippe Starck–designed refuge in the heart of NoMad, with a Mediterranean fusion restaurant, a subterranean nightclub, and a slick rooftop bar
Named after a famed Dutch abstract painter, the rapidly expanding Mondrian brand has always prioritized glamour—which explains the swanky, marble-splashed foyer at its Manhattan edition, a dramatic spread of city-inspired murals and coal-colored benches. That boldness extends to Cleo, the hotel’s tile-laden Mediterranean fusion restaurant, where executive chef Daniel Elmaleh’s Moroccan lamb, saffron chicken, and meatball shakshoukas arrive in vibrant hand-painted tagines. Another hallmark of the prolific hospitality company: an unabashed see-and-be-seen vibe, which guests will find at Fifteen Stories, a sophisticated rooftop lounge serving artisanal cocktails, freshly fired flatbreads, and views of the downtown skyline to a buzzy after-work crowd. The mood is a little more hush-hush at Never Never, the hotel’s subterranean nightclub, where you’ll find Art Deco drink trolleys, upturned lamps, and cushy Chesterfields. Guest rooms, a sultry escape dressed in faux-bois carpeting and woven leather furnishings, is the ultimate metropolitan oasis.
In the Area
Just blocks from the Empire State Building, this handsome hotel (which was once a 1920s-era office) straddles an especially envy-inducing corner of Manhattan, North of Madison Park (or NoMad, in real estate speak). Nearby, there’s Eataly, a 50,000 square-foot Italian culinary nirvana; designer Rei Kawakubo’s high-fashion wonderland Dover Street Market; and the famed Rizzoli Bookstore, a cavernous literary institution in a historic townhouse. For exploring the city’s more far-flung corners, there are CitiBikes—there’s usually a rentable fleet by Madison Square Park, just steps from the hotel—or any of the three nearby subway stations.
How to Get There
A complaint was made of me smoking. I was called then visited by employees whom all admitted there was no smell of smoke. I would say this was after 9pm. Then, upon check out, there was a smoking charge! It was removed after I complained and was told they had no proof I was smoking, which I was not. I think its highly unethical to even attempt to charge me for smoking even after an employee admitted they had no proof!?
Great location and very clean. Room we had was very small and was difficult to get in out of bed as it was too close to the wall
The hotel is walking distance to subway and attractions and good restaurants
The king rooms are too small. There’s not enough house keeping staff. I had to wait all day and night for house keeping to service my room. They didn’t come till 7:30pm one of the days after at least 6 calls to front desk and operator almost every hour. There terrace bar is a joke. The manager there seems like he is trying to make it seem all exclusively and something it’s not. The had a dead tree in the corner, & tacky fake wisteria from amazon taped to the perimeter. They should invest in some landscaping. They didn’t even serve bottled water or pineapple for my tequila
A lovely hotel well situated with professional staff willing to help with all. And a good restaurant and bar. A sophisticated clientele with comfortable rooms at reasonable prices. Great views up and down Park Ave South.
Easy access ,clean and quiet. love the rain showers. Secure rooms ,though a little on the small side if your with more than one person occupancy.I was by myself and loved the comfortable bed and the size of the TV.Extremely clean in my opinion
