Location

Ritz-Carlton New York Nomad is located steps away from Madison Square Park, the Flatiron Building, and a short walk to the Highline.

Rising 500 feet above New York’s streets, the hotel sits within the city skyline as one of the tallest buildings in NoMad, which for those of us who aren’t New Yorkers, is the birthplace of American popular music at Tin Pan Alley and today is a nexus of art, entertainment, fashion, and technology.

Style & Character

The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad invites the best of Manhattan inside of its doors. Featuring a bold design, legendary restaurants and bars, and immersive experiences, The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad enlivens the essence of the new Madison Square Park, heightened by the genuine care of the Ladies and Gentlemen.

The guestrooms and public spaces all showcase elegant floral expressions, such as natural elements and textures, that reflect the soft curvature of petals alongside sleek accents and lines, which echo New York City’s verticality and city grid.

Rooms

The hotel’s 250 guestrooms include 19 suites and 16 one- and two-bedroom penthouse residences. All rooms feature Ritz-Carlton signature beds, have a mushroom color palette, and feature bespoke furnishings, light-filled living spaces, and stunning city views to take center stage. While the rooms are nice and modern, the highlight is the views. Many rooms have stand-alone bathtubs next to the window, so you can relax while looking out over the New York skyline. Watch the setting sun cast a warm glow over the skyline as the city transitions from day to night. The views from the bed, the bath, the room are just fabulous.

Service & Facilities

The hotel also houses the signature 6,800 ft² Ritz-Carlton Spa and Fitness Center, featuring eight treatment rooms, sauna & steam rooms, and exclusive treatment offerings in partnership with Augustinus Bader. Restore and nurture the body, soul, and mind at The Ritz-Carlton Spa with therapeutic massages, facials, and body treatments.

Located adjacent to the Spa, guests can maintain their workout regimen in the state-of-the-art fitness center. Once there, you will find the latest in cardiovascular and resistance training, including a variety of all-new Technogym® equipment and Peloton® bikes. It also includes a designated area for yoga and stretching. The hotel offers complimentary fruit-infused water and cold towels. There is, however, no pool at this hotel.

Food & Drink

Restaurants and bars are by Michelin-starred chef José Andrés including Zaytinya. They offer an innovative mezze menu inspired by Turkish, Greek, and Lebanese cuisines served up in a sleek and modern setting by Rockwell Group. A new iteration of the high-end avant-garde dining destination, the Bazaar, will come later in 2023.

Andrés also oversees the hotel‘s rooftop bar, where guests can drink 500 ft (150 m) in the air, as well as in-room dining, and banquet events, including weddings and more.

Conclusion

This Ritz-Carlton feels more modern than the original Ritz-Carlton in New York. The decor in much of the hotel has a jungly feel with dark browns, greens, and lots of foliage. But for us, the bathtubs by the window make this hotel stand out.
