  • The recurring floral themes, in harmony with a subtle fresh aroma permeating the premises, enhanced the ambience.
  • Given NoMad’s prime location, this hotel is an excellent choice for both leisure and business travelers.
  • The guest rooms, starting on the 14th floor, offer a street-style view, while a bird’s-eye view of the city’s skyline begins from accommodations on the 22nd floor and above.
  • The upcoming New York outpost of Bazaar adds to the anticipation.
  • The facility’s 24-hour fitness center is perfect.
  • The versatility of The Lobby Lounge catered to both my desires for serenity and lively engagement.
  • The hotel extends over 10,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting space, featuring The Ritz-Carlton Ballroom, Madison Bar, and Madison Terrace.
  • I found myself enthralled by the spa’s steam rooms and saunas, an expansive 6,800-square-foot sanctuary.
  • Unlike its predecessor, this Ritz-Carlton iteration radiates a more contemporary vibe. The decor, lush with dark browns, greens, and verdant foliage, exudes a jungle-inspired atmosphere.
  • However, it’s the window-side bathtubs that truly make this hotel an unforgettable experience for me.

As the Ritz-Carlton New York NoMad opens its doors, it beckons guests into a world where the timeless grace of the Ritz-Carlton coalesces with the dynamic verve of NoMad. This fusion creates a stay that is as unforgettable as the city it resides in, shaping moments and memories that truly last.
