Conclusion

After looking at all these luxury hotels in New York City, it is hard to decide which is the best. Each hotel has its own upsides and downsides, but the NoMad Hotel seems to be in the middle of the pack for everything.

While the NoMad hotel only has a fitness center as its only on-site facility, it is still more than the Hotel Elysee offers. Also, while the NoMad may not be in the prime location of Times Square, it is still in a decent neighborhood with a lot to see and do. Some guests may even prefer the off-the-beaten-path location because it provides more seclusion and peace from the hustle and bustle of downtown.

We also love that the hotel offers guests use of laptops and iPads during their stay. Other hotels may offer more services, but the NoMad Hotel seems to offer what guests really can use. Plus it is the most affordable of this list.

In the end, no matter where you stay in the glamorous location of New York City you are guaranteed to have a magical stay you will not soon forget.
