A Glamorous Retreat for Modern Mad Men
Average Rating: ( 0 votes)
Beaux arts grandeur meets modern Manhattan in the form of the NoMad Hotel, with atmospheric, dimly lit interiors by famed French designer Jacques Garcia. Located in a grand turn-of-the-century Beaux Arts building north of Madison Square Park (hence the name), the hotel speaks of another time and place. Garcia aimed to create a residential feel in the 168 rooms (which range in size from 300 to 1,800 square feet), all inspired by the Parisian flat of his youth, using custom furnishings, original artwork, and handmade vintage Heriz rugs. The luxe dining level features an atrium, parlor, bar, fireplace, and library, all with original mahogany woodwork imported from the South of France. To see more, go to The NoMad Hotel .
