Arlo NoMad Location

Arlo NoMad is located in the heart of NoMad, a trendy neighbourhood with many high-end hotels in the former Garment District. The hotel's central location makes it perfect for travellers who want to explore Manhattan's Midtown and Downtown areas. There are many excellent restaurants nearby, including Marta, The Breslin, Upland, and Gramercy Tavern. The Empire State Building is just two blocks north, while Penn Station, Madison Square Garden, and Korea Town are three blocks west. The Flatiron District, which features Eataly, a massive grocery and restaurant emporium, is seven blocks south, down 5th Avenue.

Arlo NoMad Design

Arlo NoMad's communal spaces are stylish and designed to encourage interaction among guests. The hotel's furniture is minimalist, Scandinavian, and 1970s-inspired, creating a playful and trendy atmosphere. The lobby-style bar, Barlo, features an outdoor terrace with a hunting lodge vibe, flagstone floors, rough-hewn bench-tables, fur throws, and a giant dresser full of knickknacks. The hotel's library-style coworking space, the Studios, has long, dark wood communal desks, and a postcard pinboard opposite the lifts, where guests leave tips on shopping, eating, and sightseeing.


Arlo NoMad Facilities

Arlo NoMad offers a 24-hour 'bodega' in the lobby, providing coffee, juices, and gourmet deli sandwiches to take away, replacing the outdated concept of room service. Although there is no on-site gym, guests receive complimentary passes to New York Sports Club, five blocks north, and selected classes at the gung-ho group fitness studio next door, Tonehouse. The 31st-floor rooftop bar, The Heights, is a perfect spot to capture a stunning Empire State selfie, and the hotel offers same-day express and standard overnight laundry service.


Arlo NoMad Rooms

Arlo NoMad's 250 rooms are spread over 29 floors and are micro-sized (150 to 155 square feet), with an emphasis on function. The entry-level Queen rooms are categorised by view (Sky, City, or Urban), while the top-bracket Queen Terrace rooms offer a private balcony that is the same size as the entire bedroom. The mid-range corner Sky King room features a king-sized bed bordered on three sides by a headboard and floor-to-ceiling windows, offering a breathtaking view of the city rooftops. The rooms come equipped with multiple well-placed charging points, a small hanging space, storage underneath the bed for luggage, and a cleverly designed bathroom with a shower but no tub. The beds, linens, and towels are all comfortable and high quality.


Arlo NoMad Dining

Guests should book early to secure a table at Arlo NoMad's 'inauthentic Italian' restaurant, Massoni, the latest outpost from celebrity chef Dale Talde. The restaurant serves Italian dishes with a twist, such as biryani rice balls ($12/£10), Caesar salad with nori and miso ($14/£11.50), and golden snapper crudo with Japanese grapefruit ($17/£14), alongside more traditional options like Detroit-style deep-dish pizza pie ($17/£14). The staff are enthusiastic about the food and eager to engage with diners, who are a mix of hotel guests and locals. Breakfast is not included but served in Massoni, with à la carte options like polenta pancakes with prosciutto ($12/£10) and a breakfast pizza with bacon, egg, and cheese ($17/£14).
