Experience The Ritz Carlton New York, NoMad, A luxury hotel in New York and epitome of luxury.

No matter where your journey to New York City begins or ends, make sure you drop a pin in NoMad. The burgeoning district, short for North and West of Madison Square Park, is located in the center of Manhattan and connects midtown and downtown, between the Eastside and Westside of the city. It’s a dynamic epicenter of culture and a menage of glitzy hotels, premier residential buildings, floral shops, fantastic eateries and high-end shopping all set between striking architectural facades.

You may recognize the area by the ICONIC 22-story steel-framed Flatiron Building Designed by American architect Daniel Burnham, another creative who called NoMad home. So, we invite you to drop your bags and stay while—even if you have just a New York minute. 


Amongst the many glittering hotels fit for modern royalty, we have our sights set on The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad, a top-tier luxury hotel in New York. The Ritz Carlton New York, NoMad first opened its doors in July 2022 just two blocks from the park on Broadway and West 28th Street in a bustling yet refined area of the burrough. The building was designed by award-winning Uruguayan architect Rafael Viñoly, known for his international masterpieces as well as the nearby building in NoMad, an ICONIC penthouse in the tallest building on Fifth Avenue. 

Guests are welcomed into The Ritz Carlton New York, NoMad through a grand foyer flowing with jungle plants, to the jewel-toned lounge and  into the dazzling lobby bar. What feels like an ode to the roaring twenties, the scene is as if it were set for Ella Fitzgerald herself. Opulent cocktails are opened from smoking glass cloches and savored amongst the crowd of romantics and famous faces hoping to disappear into the plush furnishings. In classic and luxury New York style, no two tables of guests look the same.

Whether you’re at The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad property, or Kapalua perched on the Maui coastline, you know when you’re at the Ritz. With 219 luxurious guestrooms, 31 suites and 16 penthouse residences, the NoMad location is a towering spectacle of hospitality and high-design and shows what luxury looks like in New York. Sleek sculptural lighting, onyx stonework, and mirrored facades seamlessly blend throughout the hotel’s interior. 

Rooms are outfitted with a neutral, organic color palette paired with ultra plush bedding, mood lighting, and cave-like Terrazzo marble bathrooms accompanied by rain showers and deep tubs. In the theme of relaxation, The Ritz-Carlton Spa New York NoMad and Fitness Centre offers   6,800-square-feet of aromatherapy saunas, steam rooms, therapeutic services, plus an Augustinus Bader facial, to provide restoration after a long day in the city.

What we love most about this hotel are the views from every angle. The Empire State Building and Manhattan skyline are at eye-level while the Statue of Liberty can be seen in the distance. The Ritz Carlton New York, NoMad’s ceiling height picture windows let you witness the city waking each morning and setting on the nighttime views, which are nothing short of cinematic.


It’s not just the dazzling atmosphere of The Ritz Carlton New York, Nomad that draws people in, people travel far to experience dinner at Zaytinya, the hotel’s main floor restaurant created by beloved Michelin-starred chef José Andrés. The mezze menu is designed to be shared by all, transforming the tabletop into an array of Mediterranean tastings, from Turkey to Lebanon. Fire-roasted baba ghannouge, crispy falafels, a medley of grilled octopus, garlic shish taouk, and cured artisanal cheeses are only some of the scrumptious menu items José Andrés concocts and are best enjoyed with a side of warmed flatbread. The space is a spectacle of bronze finishes, white oak, curved furniture and hand-painted lamps all punctuated by a blue-lava bar top and sprawling wall of turquoise disc lights that seem to blink back at you.

The hotel’s most talked about jewel is the crown atop the roof where Nubeluz glows over NoMad. Envisioned as a light box in the sky by Viñoly and brought to life by Martin Brudnizki Design Studio, it was by far our favorite lookout with a setting of demure, old glamor. Pink velvet seats against back-lit velum panels and mirrored surfaces twinkle around the bar and restaurant. Serving up specialty cocktails poured by proper mixologists along with José Andrés’ embutidos. Floor-to-ceiling windows line the entire space, allowing for 270-degree views of NYC to be sunk in.

If you can possibly peel yourself away from the immaculate interiors of The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad, you are greeted to a posh intersection of business and leisure that is NoMad. Music is a must. Find your way to The Jazz Gallery for an intimate listening experience at one of the city’s premier destinations for music. As a key player in the NYC jazz community, you can find exciting emerging talent as well as established musicians performing up close and personal to the many sounds the genre embodies. Here, the past and present of jazz is alive and well. 

At ICONIC LIFE, we are lovers of all things floral, whether that’s curated tablescapes or fashionable floral garments. Making a stop at Il Fiorista is the perfect way to immerse yourself in floral aromas and vibrant blooms . As New York’s first home of the floral movement and community space celebrating the beautiful benefits of flowers, Il Fiorista is a radiant semblance of blossoms and brightly-lit interiors. Enjoy a design class, a fresh garden-inspired dinner, or pick up a curated bouquet to-go.

Nearby The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad where many boutique and brand name hotels are, is Little Ned inside the art-driven The Ned NoMad; an art-forward oasis curated with women empowerment in mind. Serving small bites and drinks in 1920’s-style booths with an ambiance of Art-Deco, the bar and restaurant is a bustling but intimate luxurious New York hideaway for travelers and locals to sink into. 

A visit to NoMad is not complete without a swing through NYC’s very own Le Labo perfumeria to experience their ICONIC line of androgynous scents. Some scents are soulful while others are city-specific to appeal to every preference. Santal 33 is a classic, but Vetiver 46 is unforgettable. We love a fragrance as a souvenir to remind you of your NYC memories for years to come. 

After all is said and done—although, in NYC it never is—you may be called to spend a tender night in. We recommend ordering pizza from across the street of The Ritz-Carlton New York, NoMad, pour yourself a glass of malbec while soaking in the bathtub made for two with the One World Trade Center in view.
