Ritz-Carlton NoMad has 219 rooms, 31 suites and 16 residences. There are many rooms to choose from, but let us help you narrow it down: choose one on a high floor (and ideally a suite). Request a south-facing room; The views are better that way, stretching from the hotel’s Midtown location to the southern tip of Manhattan, where One World Trade Center rises into the sky.

Each room is softly decorated in a neutral palette (with the exception of some exclusive suites, where there is a more dynamic touch), with huge, soft beds ideally placed to enjoy those views while sipping your morning coffee. We’re in the upper realms of luxury here, so you can expect in-room amenities to be above average, from the Dipytque products in the bathroom to the premium mini bar.

In the open-plan living and dining room, a 70s-style ocher sofa takes up much of the space, with gold accents and soft lighting creating a glamorous finish. A media room leads to the bedroom, decorated in relaxing neutral tones.
