Overview

The James Hotels’ chic Midtown outpost, steps from Madison Square Park

The Lowdown

Few hospitality groups are as synonymous with cosmopolitan style and contemporary luxury as The James Hotels, which all share a slick, fashion-forward aesthetic worthy of their glamorous urban surroundings. You can expect the same of The James New York – NoMad. This high-end hideaway is all about high design, updating the Beaux-Arts former Carlton Hotel with locally inspired details by Thomas Juul-Hansen (of Nougatine by Jean-Georges and all David Yurman outlets nationwide). Expect a reimagined mid-century vibe and plenty of 21st-century touches, from a 24-hour fitness center that will carry Peloton bikes to a custom mobile app by KEYPR on every in-room tablet. Cozy guest rooms make you feel as if you’ve rented a NoMad pied-à-terre, complete with local art on the walls and local treats in the pantry. For buzz-worthy dining, a Scarpetta location and cocktail bar by LDV Hospitality will open in early October. And in case you needed another reason to stick around, and maybe skip the city slicking entirely, complimentary pastries or light bites will be served periodically throughout the day.

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 buildings, or see all that’s hip and new right down in namesake Madison Square Park, home to one of the original Shake Shack outposts. Popular restaurants in the area include Pondicheri, Hill Country Barbecue, La Pecora Bianca, and the eateries of Eataly, while there are some stylish boutiques in the area, as well.

Top Notch Service!

Great experience! Had a little staycation at the James Nomad and it was really nice. The room was comfortable and well designed. The staff was very accommodating and made us feel right at home. Even had a crib that I requested in the room for my 10 month old. Will definitely recommend the James to our friends. Thanks again.

Excellent hotel with a great location and superlative service. Clean and well appointed rooms. The staff is comprised of wonderful people ranging from Ramon and the valet team who will greet you at the front door to the teams at the front-desk and housekeeping team. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome.

Best birthday Weekend Ever
Reviewed 5 days ago

The staff at the Hotel James went above and beyond to ensure my birthday week celebration was bar non. From Jose and Phillipe at the front check at check-in to Nia on the night shift, every effort was made to make me feel special and no request was ever treated with an eye roll, but rather a smile and an acceptance of a challenge. I'm not a difficult guest, but I did have a few requests that went outside the scope of my basic reservation (which was unbelievably affordable). From a request about my room to having my restaurant left over reheated in a microwave, they made sure it was all taken care of in a timely fashion and until I was satisfied. What a rare experience to have these days.
The room itself is just beautiful. I happen to be in a corner room with a bay window overlooking two major New York City streets. Its magical at night.
The room has a king bed and is just huge by NYC standards. The bathroom is modern with the marble sink and the glass enclosed shower.
I would highly recommend this mid-priced, but luxury style hotel.
Thank you everyone on staff!!

Shocked by the 4/5 Star Ratings

Checked into my room yesterday afternoon and it was COLD! The room temperature was at 67 degrees, cold drafts coming from the windows and cold air blowing from the heater. I called the front desk several times and while everyone was very nice, I was still sitting in a cold room in my coat. I was told that the hotel was sold out and I couldn't be moved. A space heater was provided. Two visits from staff and 6.5 hours later, my room finally started getting warm. Maintenance changed what appeared to be a filter that looked like it should have been changed last season and noticed that 2/3 windows were not properly closed. 6.5 hours later. I'll update my review after check out. Had I not pre-paid, I'd switched hotels.
