Visiting from the West Coast and missing home? Or maybe you just have a thing for flannel? Either way, check into this funky offering, where original art, turntables and vintage furniture elevate the minimal rooms to a high standard. For an atypical workspace, don’t miss the bustling lobby where, under the stained glass ceiling, you’ll find hordes of freelancers, locals and hotel guests taking advantage of free wi-fi, grateful they’re not stuck in another sad and lonely business centre. The hotel’s Stumptown Coffee will provide your AM caffeine jolt and don’t leave without trying the lamb burger at Michelin-starred chef April Bloomfield’s Breslin Bar & Dining Room.
The trendy NoMad area, named for its location just north of Madison Square Park (home to the first Shake Shack), features a few of the more fashionable hotels in the city and is conveniently located just north of the Flatiron District and Union Square.
