First time in New York for our family holiday. The James Hotel - NoMad was the perfect location to explore Manhattan. Room (Double Queen) was ideal for 3 adults, although the bathroom was very small. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful and you have everything you need within the hotel/walking distance.

Front desk was welcoming and friendly. The room worked for two guests and was clean and looked great.. Rates were reasonable. I'd stay here next trip into NYC. NYC is under tremendous construction projects and road improvements. I didn't hear any of it in my room.

We had a wonderful experience staying at the James Nomad in July this year (long overdue review!). We were a party of 5 and had two adjoining suites on the 11th floor. Granted this afforded us generous floor space; regardless, the layout, furnishings, toiletries, linens and service were all first class. Clean and relaxed with a cool, mid century vibe - perfect for keeping trendy teenagers happy!!. The reception and lounge areas are just stunning and provided a perfect place to relax and unwind after a long day in the heat. We enjoyed their cheese and wine each evening! Very helpful, friendly staff and plenty of them on duty at any one time. The icing on the cake; this hotel is two blocks from Madison Sq Park - which we escaped to each evening. If I am lucky enough to visit NYC again, this would be my default hotel. Simply perfect! Read less
