Hotels come in many shapes and sizes but none in recent history seem to have the luxurious allure of the forthcoming NoMad. That's why we're calling it the new go-to home-away-from-home for visiting celebs and Duchess siblings alike. With 168 rooms and suites that feel like home (if you happen to live in a palatial France-meets-fiction boudoir), a gigantic atrium, a stunning library, and a cocktail bar that would drop even Don Draper's jaw, the haute hostelry is impressive without being too stiff. You can say merci to famed interior decorator Jacques Garcia — the dude behind Hotel Costes was specially commissioned to bring his incroyable aesthetic across the pond. Better still, the soon-to-be-open rooftop will serve up cuisine from award-winning NYC chef and restraunteurs and the retail space, already ready for you to shop, is stocked by Maison Kitsune. Take a breather. Okay, now flip through the gorgeous pics of the
palace place and imagine yourself there. Ahhh, how's that for an afternoon break?
The NoMad Hotel, 1170 Broadway (at 28th Street); 212-796-1500.
