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.
