The NOMO SOHO (NoMo meaning nostalgic and modern) is an it-destination in the heart of stylish SoHo. Inspired by Jean Cocteau’s cinematic interpretation of the tale of “La Belle et la Bête” (Beauty and the Beast), designer Benjamin Noriega Ortiz casts a fairy tale spell in the lobby with feathery blue pendants, umbrella lamps, and silver lanterns reflected in mirrored tables and outsize silver urns. The playful wonderland continues in Italian NoMo Kitchen where a Deborah Lippman–designed glass sculpture hovers above the lush greenhouse-style dining room. Hallways lined in antique sconces and silver mirrors lead to “sleeping chambers,” where white platform beds and chrome nightstands appear to float cloud-like on the royal blue carpet. Walls are art-free, keeping the focus on the city views framed by 10-foot, floor-to-ceiling windows. Marble bathrooms have Molton Brown products and, in Deluxe Rooms, peep-show showers with glass windows giving you a view of SoHo (and SoHo of you). Set in a greenhouse lit by chandeliers dripping in crystals, NoMo Kitchen, formerly Isola Trattoria & Crudo Bar, serves up a taste of the Amalfi Coast in SoHo with modern Italian fare like salt-crusted branzino with stinging nettles and limoncello sauce.
In the Area
You’re in Manhattan’s premier shopping district, so flex that plastic at homegrown boutiques like 3.1 Phillip Lim and Rag & Bone, on Mercer Street, and Alexander Wang, on Grand Street. Refuel with the brunch crowds over eggs Florentine at French icon Balthazar or over baked eggs with barbecue short ribs at The Dutch. Order up a side of culture with the contemporary exhibits at the New Museum or over the art house flicks at Sunshine or Angelika movie theaters. Then grab a cocktail at punk rock speakeasy the Mulberry Project, where bartenders create concoctions based on the liquor you like and whatever fruits and herbs they have from the green markets or SoHo.
How to Get There
Beautiful hotel, overall a great experience...from the moment I called to say we would be arriving late I knew it was a special place. When we arrived we were greeted by a spectacular entrance. Our room was a little tight, but had a spectacular view. The restaurant is amazing, definitely worth a visit! I am giving the hotel 4 stars because when we went back to our room on the last day we found we had been locked out of our room. Not sure why, we had a late check out. I had to call twice and wait over 20 minutes for someone to open our room. This really upset me, if we had been on a tight schedule we would have missed our flight.
This is a nice hotel in a very good area to use as a base for sight seeing New York. Subway is close by. Make point to ask for a room on a high floor. Our room was on 24th Floor with a view of Brooklyn Bridge. The other side of the hotel has views towards the empire state building. We found the staff friendly an efficient. Note that the roof top bar does no longer exist, however the is a decent bar on the ground floor within the restaurant area. Watch for the room facility charge this is added to your bill and not included in the room rate, $44 dollars per room per night soon adds up. We found New York expensive, we had meal in hotel restaurant one night x2 cocktails, x2 two course meals, a glass of wine and x1 beer £170.00 and portions were not great. Be aware that after the first night the bottled water in the room is charged @ $10 per bottle per day if you use it, this was over the top for a bottle of water which given the costs of staying at this hotel you would reasonably expect to be included.
Close to metro. Very nice place Great location, very good service. Will definitely return to the same hotel. Walking distance from shopping. Close to the subway- 3 min walk.
Staff are kind.
I definitely recommend it
