Highs & Lows

  • Restful and relaxing whilst being sophisticated, sumptuous and elegant. Hide away in the library with a negroni and indulge in the sweet potato, rosemary and sage bread from the restaurant.

  • Doormen/Bellmen were friendly and helpful, and very easy on the eye.

  • Artwork throughout the hotel has been carefully chosen and hung. The curated art programme includes Portraits de Villes photographs adding to the hotel’s intrigue and thoughtful nature.

  • Gorgeous Argan bath amenities by Cote Bastide, exclusive to The NoMad.

  • Immediate location not the most attractive area in Manhattan – endless wholesale shops and not an awful lot in the area, but the subway couldn’t be closer.
