NoMad — The NYC Hotel Hotspot!
We love to see the NoMad District get more and more attention in the press, and the latest article in the Travel section of USA Today speaks volumes with our growth! The article focuses primarily on the opening of Los Angeles-based hotelier Sam Nazarian’s hot new hotel at 444 South Park Avenue — just a stones throw from the Gansevoort Park. The new Nazarian venture is to be called SLS and will feature 190 rooms and suites, as well as bar venues in the lobby and on a 14th story rooftop.
As you well know NoMad has become quite the hotspot for hotels after the opening of The Ace Hotel a few years back. Michael Suomi of Stonehill & Taylor — one of the people responsible for converting both The NoMad and Ace hotels spoke to USA Today and stated that “The area’s becoming very hot.” We personally think the neighborhood could not get any hotter! With so many openings in the next year, it sure to define itself as one of the prime live/work locations in the city.
We will have much more on the SLS as we find out, and keep track of all of the hottest NoMad news right here on Experience NoMad!
