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.
How to Get There
Sorry, but I had great expectations for The James. Mid-century modern at its best, but rooms, although I stayed in a quite large one, they really didn't nailed layout: there was a large void in the middle that didn't serve any purpose, a very small 'dining' table and insufficient storage for clothing, in my humble opinion. It would have been good to see a rug and some other furniture to better dress-up the very generous space. The bathroom was quite nice and pretty much the feature in the room. The lobby, rooftop and restaurant were also great, which is always a plus. I would say 4.5 stars!
Great stay. Comfortable rooms.
Good location for Midtown
Would stay again. Only issue was water pressure in shower.
Would recommend and stay again. The service was excellent. And even checking out was very easy.
Well provisioned, well kept. Some issues with cleanliness in the bathrooms. Staff were very friendly. Room and funishings felt very comfortable.Room and bathroom size was nice for NY. Location is good - good choices for dining, easy to get to transportation, lots of taxis around.
