MADE hotel recently opened its door in the NoMad area of New York City. NoMad is an acronym for North of Madison (Square). This 18-story boutique hotel featuring 108 uniquely designed guest rooms is a hotel where you are sure to get your value. Placing priority on guest experience MADE was designed around the concept of space-sharing in communal open settings.
Entering the lobby, you will immediately realise that this is not your traditional Hotel. MADE was inspired by Sam Gelin with the unique vision where barriers are taken down so guest feel as if they have found their personal oasis in the cleverly designed open spaces. This communal design lends the perfect multifunctional space to the tech-savvy, creative, cause-driven guest. In the middle of the communal open space, you will find a Wi-Fi bar to nestle up to and experience the ideal area to place your laptop and get down to business.
The unique guest rooms at MADE are void of the traditional hotel feel. With cool designs such as floor to ceiling windows, platform beds, concrete ceiling mixed with digital convenience, you may find yourself spending a little more time in this easy-going New York hotel room. With the simplicity of the creative design, every inch of the rooms has been well thought out to maximize space. MADE offers a variety of rooms sizes and designs to choose from so make sure to check out the hotel website to see which room draws you in.
Amongst the many communal spaces of MADE, The Patio is outstanding. Located on the second floor, it can be accessed from the lobby through the glassed-in staircase. This staircase will lead you to a calm oasis in the midst of the tall buildings surrounding the hotel. Extremely peaceful, this space is completed with cozy seating and lavish greenery. Opened during the day, limited to guest only, it is the perfect space to read a book or simply unwind.
Whether you will be heading off to a meeting or exploring the city, you will want to stop by PAPER, the hotel and neighborhood coffee bar. As it has been said, “you will enjoy the highest quality of coffee, teas and baked goods to get you started for the day.”
Not to let any space go to waste, PAPER offers selected wines and craft cocktails at night. PAPER has great lighting that shines through the large windows by day and warm lighting by night. The communal tables and scattered seating give you a nice choice as to how you would like to use the space. At MADE, is it all about you.
Blending in with the lobby, you cannot miss the chic LOBBY BAR. In this communal style bar, you may enjoy cocktails while chatting with other guest or feel completely comfortable taking in the scene in solo. The dim lighting and the beautiful wood project a calming glow of ambiance perfect for unwinding at the end of the day.
Yet another space with impeccable style to enjoy at MADE is the rooftop bar GOOD BEHAVIOR – contemplate amazing views of beautiful New York skylights including the iconic Empire State building while sipping on a Tiki inspired cocktail, craft beers or large cocktails to share.
During the day, weather permitting, relax in the sun on the ROOFTOP DECK, because when in New York City, no experience is complete without some time spent on a rooftop.
FERRIS RESTAURANT is located in the cellar of MADE Hotel. Opened for breakfast, lunch and dinner this New American seasonal restaurant pulls from global cuisines created by the talented Executive Chef Greg Proechel. The fully open kitchen goes along with the theme of communal spaces located throughout Made Hotel. Never a dull menu as Chef Proechel changes his ingredients with the season.
MADE Hotel is located at the intersection of Broadway and 29th street.
