Located on a stretch of Broadway just north of Madison Square Park that’s slowly evolving from a no-man’s-land of garment and electronics shops to become one of the city’s trendier nooks, The NoMad offers a luxe boutique hotel experience with a Bohemian vibe.
The Beaux-Arts building that houses the 168-room Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel includes streamlined and vaguely Victorian rooms with interiors by French designer Jacques Garcia and several restaurant spaces overseen by New York wonder-duo chef Daniel Humm and Will Guidara of excellent restaurant Eleven Madison Park. The one to check out is Atrium Restaurant, a more casual outpost of Eleven Madison Park that sits under a striking pyramidal glass roof. Don’t miss its roasted chicken stuffed with foie gras and black truffles. Most Manhattanites come for the food and the lively bar scene, but those who book a room will be rewarded with surprisingly quiet and spacious retreats that feature bathrooms with claw-foot tubs.
