I recently had the chance to stay at The NoMad Hotel.  Located just north of the Flatiron District, a booming retail and eating destination, I was excited to take my very own staycation. Being a New Yorker, it was also my first stay in a hotel in New York City. Already in love with their library bar, I was excited to see the rooms!

Hotels like the nearby Ace and The Standard in the Meatpacking District, invite patrons into their stylish campus of restaurants, bars, and coffee shops. At the NoMad’s bar, it’s a universe of mahogany and leather served with a well made old fashioned.

My hotel room was beautiful and much larger than any I’ve heard of around the city. A California King with a leather headboard and carefully curated framed prints made it feel special, like visiting someone’s chic home. The space is inviting and eclectic, like the home of a traveler who collects artifacts along their journey.

Included on the wall was a map of Holland, a place I love, so I took it as a good sign I’d be in for a treat.

The bedroom and washroom flow into each other with a free-standing sink, walk-in shower and most jovially, a four post bathtub.

The NoMad Hotel offers a sense of luxury without stuffiness. It’s hip, creative, and original. It might be the perfect place to call home on your next visit to New York City.
