Set in the immaculately restored former National Cash Register Company, The NoMad Hotel brings Broadway back to its golden days, both literally – note the gilded lobby – and figuratively. This enchanting beaux arts boutique hotel has it all: a top-tier restaurant, a cosy library lounge, a chic boutique and beautiful, airy rooms. The hotel may be named for its location (north of Madison Park), but designer Jacques Garcia ran with the idea, adding unique journey-themed touches to the rooms, which convey an ideal of maple-floored, old-world elegance alongside every modern luxury.
Pluck a tome from the dimly lit Library Lounge. The split-level literary haven features floor-to-ceiling bookshelves filled with volumes curated by rare bookstore Juniper Books. Scale the spiral staircase to grab a title, order a cocktail, then curl into one of the stuffed chairs to flip through.
