The NoMad Hotel, located near New York City’s Madison Square Park, is housed in a restored Beaux-Arts building with many of the original details (reclaimed wood floors, magnificent crown moldings) intact. The boutique hotel’s interiors were dreamed up by French designer Jacques Garcia, who blended elements of Parisian pied-à-terres into the streamlined rooms and dimly lit common areas. Besides rosewood panels, sculpted accents and heavy damask draperies, you’ll notice a travel theme with framed maps, steamer trunks and vintage-inspired light fixtures. The Forbes Travel Guide Recommended hotel's guest rooms feature framed vintage photographs and sketches, as well as hardwood floors covered with colorful hand-woven rugs. The bathrooms are a highlight — some have vintage claw-foot tubs, perfect for long soaks.
