with the soft opening scheduled for sun - apr 1, the nomad hotel unfolds its long-anticipated hospitality to those who relish old world charm in a deluxe format. located in a turn of the century beaux-arts building in a stretch of broadway previously known to be rather bland, the property has been turned inside out by renowned french architect + interior designer jacques garcia who rendered the place into an oasis of stately chic. featuring no less than 168 rooms and suites, each one is appointed with hand-selected, richly textured custom-designed furnishings and original artwork, resulting in a unique sense of luxury. added to the haute aesthetics is a set of features and amenities indispensible to today's traveller, such as wireless internet access, an lcd hd television, an ihome docking station and a 24-hour state-of-the-art fitness room. the nomad hotel boasts soaring ceilings throughout the public spaces that add visual drama.

a 24-foot-long mahogany bar evokes a balanced mix of spirited club and elegant lounge, and serves a selection of classic and proprietary cocktails. the pace is a tad more relaxed in the two-level library where guests can lounge amidst a stylish setting of custom-made furnishings, a communal mahogany table and ofcourse a wide variety of books. all within reach of fingerfood and drinks. this space doubles as a cocktail lounge in the evenings. restaurateur will guidara and top chef daniel humm - both from the michelin 3-star gourmet spot eleven madison park - supervise the dining room's refined food + beverage program. interestingly, this summer will see the opening of a second culinary retreat on the rooftop. and next to the lavish decorum, the nomad hotel also blends in hipster coolness - setting it apart from similar old world-style deluxe pads in the city - by accommodating a maison kitsuné boutique on its premises. location: 1170 broadway [nomad].
