We’ve got the blues. And by blues we mean a sea of cobalt carpet and 50 shades of NARS lipstick. What more could THE STAYCATIONERS possibly need, besides some bubbly and a camera? That was rhetorical.
THE SPOT: NOMO SOHO | 9 Crosby Street
THE STATS: 263 rooms, one restaurant, library bar, impressive carpet situation
PERFECT FOR: Girls’ night in, glam edition
What’s blue and white and screams “staycation” all over? NOMO SOHO’s suites, of course. With bright white accents and that plush royal blue carpet underfoot, these gorgeously appointed rooms overlook SoHo in all its glory, soaking in the neighborhood’s sunshine pouring through generous windows. THE STAYCATIONERS wasted no time, diving into their tenth edition (happy anniversary, girls!) to the tune of bottles popping and lips a-puckering.
Decked out in motos, trenches, and general floss, THE STAYCATIONERS rocked The Arrivals on their backs and NARS in all the right places (including a mirror or two). Where The Writing is involved, no surface is safe. Bonus: use code SHOP when booking Nomo Soho to up your staycay style game, granting access to exclusive shopping rates and experiences at hotspots in the hood. We’re talking Theory, Intermix, Vince, Carson Street Clothiers (here’s looking at you, gentlemen), Haute Hippie, 3×1 (custom jeans holla), and Label. You’re welcome.
THE STAYCATIONERS took to the ground floor for a bit of library lounging, wining and dining, and naturally, some design inspo. Can you blame them? Nothing like cocktails and a secret bookshelf passageway followed by Chef Salaam’s contemporary American fare under the twinkling lights overhead at NOMO Kitchen. Cue the flatbreads — @h0tgirlseatingpizza in the house. Perfect for the health conscious staycationer, NOMO’s eponymous eatery is the spot for both guests and locals alike, buzzing through the wee hours as drinks flow and plates pass to and fro. Speaking of…another round, pretty please.
There’s no better feeling than knowing bedtime is just an elevator ride away after a long night out. THE STAYCATIONERS retired to their marble-clad room, cozying up to arguably the most luscious bedding in STAYCATIONERS history (a tough call) and dozing off to dreams of NARS Pure Mattes and fur-collared motos. Such is the SoHo life.
