Looking for the sleekest stay in New York City? It’s undoubtedly the Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad, which ushers in a new era of luxury for the famed hospitality group. Opening its doors in 2022, the hotel honors its home in the historic Flower District with tasteful details woven throughout the property. Situated at Broadway and 28th Street in one of NoMad’s tallest buildings, it offers all the expected opulence that Ritz-Carlton devotees have come to love yet oozes with an undeniably bold new cool factor.
The hotel rises 50 floors into the sky in a Rafael Viñoly–designed structure, featuring unexpected tranquility as well as unrivaled views of sites like downtown Manhattan, the Empire State Building, and even the Statue of Liberty on a clear day. Those vistas can be enjoyed from many of the 219 guest rooms, 31 suites, and 16 pied-à-terre penthouse residences (ideal for larger groups or longer stays). No matter what you book, an inspired stay here serves as a personal respite from the bustle of the Big Apple.
The dining scene is equally dreamy, marking Ritz-Carlton’s first collaboration with Michelin-starred chef José Andrés. Flagship restaurant the Bazaar by José Andrés — a sister site to the Chicago, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C., outposts — brings together the best of Japan and Spain. All-day eatery Zaytinya is a Mediterranean power lunch hot spot with a bright mezze menu. Rooftop bar Nubeluz marries 270-degree views with modern takes on classic cocktails as well as delectable bites. And the relaxing Ritz-Carlton Club Lounge offers inventive daily culinary presentations nearly around the clock.
The spa is the ultimate escape, boasting 6,800 square feet of pure relaxation. Among the many must-try holistic treatments are the fan-favorite Rose Quartz Remedy — a botanical-infused full-body massage and exfoliation — and the Method Facial by Augustinus Bader, featuring the beloved brand’s patented TFC8 complex to rejuvenate skin, promote circulation and boost cellular communication.
All told, the Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad lives up to the hype as the hippest hotel in town, which is no small feat in a metropolis like New York City. It also serves as a haute harbinger of what’s to come for the storied hospitality group as the travel industry looks to woo sophisticated globetrotters of all generations by combining signature sumptuousness with bold modernity and irresistible amenities.
