Read our latest and greatest from Carlos Melia's travels in New York City! The new NoMad Hotel is fresh on his radar- look no further for the inside scoop.

"A new hotel option is around the block and last week I came to have a look at it. NOMAD Hotel (aka, NOrth of MADison Square Park, but also playing with the words of being a traveller and moving around).  I must be fully honest, and say that while being an interesting option, I was not quite blown away by it. Located on Broadway and 28th Street, ideally situated between the East and West sides of the City, the hotel is convenient to most areas, including SoHo, Greenwich Village, Chelsea and the Meatpacking District.

The NoMad Hotel is housed in a turn of the century Beaux-Arts building that has been fully restored to its original grandeur with interiors by French designer Jacques Garcia. The hotel is intended as a fresh take on the classic grand hotels of Europe with a distinct New York sensibility. The design of the hotel was inspired by the Parisian flat of Garcia’s youth. The 168 rooms are residential in feel and decorated in his classic, timeless style. Each room is appointed with hand-selected, richly textured custom-designed furnishings and original artwork. The soaring ceilings throughout the public spaces provide a fine gathering place to enjoy dining, drinking and socializing. Seven room types all including these amenities High-speed wireless internet access, ARGAN Bathroom amenities, Nightly turndown service and Daily newspaper delivery."
