I stayed for one night @ the James Hotel Nomad. I was treating my nieces to a night in the city and was hoping the hotel would be pretty nice to make them feel pretty special and luxurious! The first room: someone was smoking in their room, since we have asthma we had to switch rooms (smoking is prohibited in the hotel). The 2nd room: We walked in and our room smelled disgusting…like punch you in the face disgusting. After a while we started getting used to the smell so figured we would stick it out since we didn’t want to move rooms again. However, when my niece went to take a shower their were bugs in the tub!! 3rd Room: Smelled like a normal room…however, when I woke up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom there were bugs slithering around near the toilet (gag). I didn’t even tell the hotel at that point because I realized it’s just a crappy hotel. After leaving the 2nd room the manager called and was extremely apologetic and sounded genuinely sorry for my inconvenience and offered a significant discount for the room. I appreciated the call, but the hotel is far from what I expected. Scarpetta was amazing though, my nieces really enjoyed that part…but they were too scared to sleep in the bed so the slept on the comforter!! LOL Read less

We had heard good reports on the James from friends. Booked here for our first NY visit in three years and first extended travel since COVID. Well appointed King room, quiet even facing 29th Street, excellent housekeeping. The staff are very helpful and friendly. We also enjoyed the morning coffee in the spacious lobby, bringing in delicious items from the Bourke Bakery around the corner in the hotel building but separate operation. Evening wine hour also enjoyable. Roman with the front door staff was particularly helpful with some extra needs and airport transfers. Would easily stay here again. Read less

Love this boutique hotel in NoMad, great location if you are taking the train in or headed downtown to Village or Soho. Nice quiet neighborhood but still lots of great eating and drinking options too. Nearby is Madison Square Park and Union Square. Rooms are spacious (for NYC) especially if you get a Queen Queen or even a King,… Read more
Love this boutique hotel in NoMad, great location if you are taking the train in or headed downtown to Village or Soho. Nice quiet neighborhood but still lots of great eating and drinking options too. Nearby is Madison Square Park and Union Square. Rooms are spacious (for NYC) especially if you get a Queen Queen or even a King, rooms/bathrooms renovated pretty recently. Nice experience overall with front desk, housekeeping, valets, etc. Highly recommended! Read less
