Most striking feature:
A bath with a view over Manhattan. Can we wish for more? The NoMad Hotel opened it’s doors in May and it’s the new it-hotel in the NoMad district (North of Madison Square). From the outside you see nothing but an impressive building – and the next door Maison Kitsuné boutique. When you enter you will feel the French atmosphere: Jacques Garcia, known of Hôtel Costes in Paris, did the interior. Thick black walls, some golden details and staff in perfect outfits. The friendly, and very enthusiastic, concierge gave me a tour of the hotel. We’ve started at the breakfast room, I’ve seen the small room with fireplace you can rent with an intimate group of friends and learned that New York love to come to the bar for extremely good cocktails. Next to the bar is the library where guests opened their laptops to do some work – or make their friends jealous by checking in on all the social media applications.
After that I’ve seen two rooms. Both looked out onto the street. I’ve seen the Atelier room (with bright city views) and the Suite (situated on the corner so you’ll have a panoramic view over Manhattan). Personally I liked the Atelier room better because there’s a tub in front of the window. Nobody will see you, but you can unwind there by still feeling the Manhattan vibe from outside.
