Named for its location, The NoMad Hotel is situated in the up-and-coming neighbourhood north of Madison Square Park, making it an ideal homebase for someone looking to explore both uptown and downtown Manhattan. That said, this hotel hosts some of New York’s finest spaces to drink and dine (a beautiful and airy atrium, a small romantic fireplace corner, a cosy library bar) so you might never leave. More old-school than modern, we love the NoMad for its plush decór and opulent ambience.

Rooms have a classic, residential feel with an emphasis on rich textures. Picture embossed leather headboards, reclaimed maple hardwood floors, damask patterned paravents and mahogany writing desks. Idiosyncratic touches include claw-foot free-standing baths and original artwork on the walls. Options range from the 340sq ft classic room to the 1800sq ft Suite Royale. Rooms start at £334.
Breakfast is not included, but if you’re feeling homesick you can head downstairs and order the NoMad Breakfast – the hotel’s take on a classic full English.
Lunch and Dinner?
As we said, you’ll find some of New York’s finest food in the NoMad restaurant. The restaurant is run by Swiss chef Daniel Humm, better known as the co-owner and chef of three-Michelin star restaurant, Eleven Madison Park.
Is there a Bar?
The NoMad Bar is also unbeatable. With a full food menu, glamorous setting and out-of-this world cocktails, this is the perfect place to spend the evening after a long day of sightseeing. New York’s toughest food critics have written love letters to the burger at the NoMad bar.
Exclusive argan bath amenities by Côté Bastide, fully stocked minibar, large flat screen LCD HD television with on-demand movies, iHome docking station, 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness room, laptops and iPads available upon request and complimentary wifi.
Need to know
The hotel frequently hosts events throughout the year (like their Halloween Masquerade Ball) and regular entertainment including their upscale magic show The Magician. Call the concierge when you book for more information.
Within a short walk
New Yorkers have been going nuts over this new restaurant from Stephen Starr and chef Justin Smillie. The dinner menu offers an awesome mix of seasonal vegetable dishes and upscale pizzas and pastas. Whatever you do, order the whole crispy mushroom.
America’s favourite cult spinning studio has a location right around the corner from the NoMad. Classes are just 45 minutes and the borderline celebrity instructors craft some amazing playlists for you to spin to.
Speaking of cult followings, if you haven’t tried Danny Meyer’s now famous Shake Shack burger then add this to your bucket list immediately. The original Madison Square Garden location is just a five minute walk from the hotel. Fast food will never feel the same.
The NoMad Bar isn’t the only hot hotel lounge in the area. You’ve got the ACE around the corner – whose ground floor bar is consistently packed on weekend evenings – and the Rose Bar in the Gramercy Park Hotel. We love the seductive ambience of the latter, with its grand fireplace and soft candle lighting.
