HOTEL REVIEW


Maison Kitsune store in the US. In many ways NoMad is a counterpoint


to The Ace – a grown-up sister hotel, if you will. Where The Ace features industrial furnishings, record players in the rooms and boxing robes in place of bathrobes, NoMad has Cote Bastide-Argan bath amenities, Heriz handmade rugs, Bespoken staff uniforms, Be-poles + Portraits de Villes supplied art, and Want les Essentials de la Vie leather furniture.

The hotel also showcases De Rolles French taxidermy. These richly detailed interiors are the

Taylor, specialists in historical preservation and hotel conversion, already known for their work on The Crosby Hotel, The Plaza, The Surrey and The Ace. The 12-storey NoMad hotel is housed in a turn-of-the-century Beaux-Arts limestone and brick building now fully restored to its original grandeur. “The NoMad is one of the only examples


of a building of this scale and architectural quality being transformed from an office building to a hotel,” says Michael Suomi, Principal at Stonehill & Taylor. “The result is a building that uniquely combines turn- of-the-century elegance and glamour with modern technologies and materials.” “We took care to preserve every existing


tile, plasterwork, or other detail, and used these remnants of the old building as an inspiration for the rest of the design,” adds Stonehill & Taylor President Paul Taylor. One of the most notable characteristics
