Even the most jaded New Yorkers couldn’t help but gush over the French-inspired Jacques Garcia interiors, historic Beaux-Arts façade, and hip bar and restaurant when this luxe property opened in 2012. The sexy, low-lit interiors have a hushed Old World glamour, with Merlot velvet drapes, tassled sconces, and ornate marble fireplaces. Garcia drew inspiration from his childhood flat in Paris when designing the 168 apartment-like guest rooms—think reclaimed maple floors, antique Heriz rugs, and wall hangings (black-and-white French photographs; record sleeves) found in vintage shops. A multitude of A-listers have flocked to the popular restaurant downstairs—a lush space inspired by European garden restaurants and headed by a Michelin-starred chef serving inventive French cuisine like whole roasted chicken with foie gras, black truffle, and brioche. Behind the restaurant is the 24-foot mahogany bar where mixologists hold court with such drinks as the Mother’s Little Helper, a concoction of gin, sherry, dry vermouth, triple sec, elderflower liqueur, and bitters best sipped slowly in the adjoining two-story Library. In 2014, the hotel added The Nomad Bar, a sexy bi-level space serving up classic cocktails, haute bar fare (think truffle and foie gras chicken pot pie), and reserve cocktails made with high-end spirits.
In the Area
Most tourists know the hotel’s neighborhood because of Herald Square and Macy’s, and real estate brokers have christened the hip ‘hood NoMad (north of Madison), but locals know it as Koreatown. Grab some joo mool reok at Madangsui, and then kick out some karaoke tunes by renting a private room at Gagopa. Or make like a local and grab a burger and a shake at the legendary Danny Meyer joint Shake Shack, three blocks south of the hotel in Madison Square Park. Just off the park is Mario Batali’s 42,500-square-foot temple to Italian fare, Eataly, perfect for grazing and picnic provisions. Free to the public, FIT’s Museum of Fashion is a great secret in the area, with design and textile history exhibits. For a late-night tipple in the ‘hood, trust us and head to Play at the Museum of Sex. The surprisingly upscale drinking den has killer (if innuendo laden) cocktails and a well-priced small-plate menu. For more NoMad inspiration, read about designer Todd Snyder’s Perfect Day in the neighborhood.
How to Get There
An excellent hotel, with well decorated comfortable rooms! The place to be with America’s #1 rated Restaurant! Excellent Options fir dining/relaxing. The fitness center was not impressive. Polite staff especially in the restaurant
Came back from Cali and my apartment was flooded! I was told from a friend to stay at The Nomad. I had only been to the one in LA so i thought i would give it a try. It was a terrible experience. The front desk agents had a bad attitude and acted as if i was doing them a disservice for trying to check in a little earlier than normal. Chris from the restaurant was cool and probably the only good thing about that place. The rooms are nice but when you get bad service none of that really matters.
Location of hotel amazing hotel clean and very modern the manager Rob was fantastic we went to New York to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday and Rob sent 2 bottles of wine up for us to celebrate with the conpliments of the hotel which was lovely. The only thing I would say is the cost of breakfast and drinks at the bar it’s very expensive! Breakfast was not great either and for £112 pounds I would expect more the breakfast was warm and they run out of bacon and egg by the time the egg came out we were informed to get it quick as they were removing breakfast items ready for lunch ( this was at 10.30) when I informed the waitress we were still waiting for bacon she shrugged her shoulders! Still a lovely hotel just very pricey don’t forget you will have to pay an additional 31 dollars per night for each room on top of your hotel bill for tax
Just wow! From the implacable service, the bar, the restaurant and the Library! This place is an absolute must stay when In New York. Great location too - walkable to almost everywhere good if you are the type to keep your steps up, without being “too” in the thick of it. Great eateries all around and even a CrossFit box down the road (they also have a basic yet functional and very clean in house fitness centre). The ambience of this hotel is Paris meets New York vibe, old school in the best of ways and created an amazing winter stay. And thank goodness for the larger bathrooms and the fact that you guys are the only place i could find in NYC who’d poach my eggs for breakfast, as opposed to fry!. The only thing that freaked me out was the chick dressed in white acting like a ghost near the lifts, on some nights. She freaked me out so much that I could no longer train by myself at night in your fitness centre - created a bit of a haunted house vibe (think she’s with the magic show you have on there). In all seriousness though, was a magical stay. Thanks.
My husband and I stayed four nights for New Years weekend. We were going to four shows at Madison Square Garden and this hotel was just far enough away from the Times Square crowds but close enough to walk to MSG. The bathtub was wonderful to come back to after long days and nights. The room was quite large by NYC standards, and though some reviewers complain of small closet space our room had ample room in the closet for both of our clothes and shoes. The bathrobes and slippers were a nice touch. The hotel was very classy, romantic if you will. They allow dogs, and although we didn’t bring ours it’s nice to know we can if we come back. The bed and linens were very comfortable, and the 24 hour room service was convenient. The bar is pricey, but not any more than any other nice bar in NYC. The cocktails were fantastic. There are plenty of good restaurants on the adjoining blocks as well. We enjoyed PN wood fired pizza and Smith’s.
