NoMad is one of the latest additions to New York’s North of Madison Square Park district; a housed in a converted turn of the century Beaux-Arts building.
The NoMad Beaux-Arts building has been fully restored to its original splendor and its magnificent interiors are the inspiration of the multi talented French architect/interior and garden designer Jacques Garcia. Jacques Garcia himself is best known for his contemporary interiors for Paris’ hotels and restaurants including the famous Hôtel Costes, as well as for his unique house with the astonishing gardens, The Château du Champ-de-Bataille, which we were fortunate enough to visit last year as part of our visit at The Goodwill Revival.
This luxury 133,000 square-foot landmark building was then converted into a Parisian inspired lifestyle hotel that speaks to the building’s architectural heritage. The NoMad hotel which opened its doors to the public earlier this year is intended to be a fresh take on the classic grand hotels of Europe with a distinct New York feeling and twist however.
All one hundred and sixty-eight rooms are residential in feel together with their Parisian flat/trendy New York hotel vibe. The rooms feel like the apartment you really wish you could be lucky enough to own; decorated in a classic, timeless style, each of the 168 rooms feature endless sigh worthy element such as the double bay historic windows and views of the Empire State and Flatiron Buildings, reclaimed maple hardwood floors, tall ceilings, handmade vintage Heriz rugs, richly textured custom-designed furnishings, luxuriantly textured wood, leather and felt accents, unique hand-selected original artwork, beautiful tiles, amazing linen by Sferra and Frette, an exclusive collection of Argan bath amenities by Côté Bastide and …
The accommodations aside, the property features a high-ceilinged lobby, as well as towering ceilings throughout all of its the public spaces. The high-ceilinged lobby with original detailing and a glass roof atrium offers the ideal space for all day dining, drinking and socializing (perfect).
However, one of the most interesting public spaces within the NoMad which combines the best of the two worlds from differing points of the globe, is the Atrium – an airy, sunlit space inspired by the great courtyards of Europe. Elements such as the natural light filtering through the pyramidal glass roof provide an inviting space available for dining throughout the day and well into the night. Moreover, its inviting open hearth right slap bang in the centre of the space is where guests can observe the preparation of fresh breads and seasonal specialties.
The NoMad Hotel is a hot new addition to NYC’s line up of boutique hotels, sure to be a big hit with both local and international jetsetters where its central location is sure to tick many boxes for its proximity to SoHo, Greenwich Village and the Meatpacking District.
