The NoMad Hotel
The grandeur of The NoMad Hotel, in New York City, is designed by the acclaimed French architect and interior designer, Jacques Garcia. Inspired by his younger years in Paris, Garcia possesses a truly unique style while creating a timeless interpretation of French elegance. The turn of the century Beaux-Arts building has been masterfully restored, with interior spaces that are lavishly decorated with chintz, as though it were the new chic. Original features in the lobby have been restored with elaborate ceiling moldings, mosaic tile floors, and distressed embossed-leather wallpaper.
With unparalleled service the clientele had a bold presence during our stay. From the warm welcome received in the lobby to the cocktails ordered in the Library, service was impeccable. My weekend in the Atelier room was accompanied by exclusive Argan bath amenities by Côté Bastide, custom linens, bedding, and bathrobes by Sferra and Frette, and my favorite, a mahogany writing desk! Reclaimed maple flooring covers each beautiful room with vintage Heriz rugs and a curated art program covers the white walls. Dimmers in the light switches for guests to set the mood, are just another touch to the glamourous European rooms.
Located North of Madison Square Park and bordered by the iconic Flatiron Building district, the NoMad is centrally located for easy access to all the best dining and shopping hotspots. But the glass-roofed atrium, originally an interior courtyard, may entice you to stay with award winning chef, Daniel Humm’s, cooking aromas.
