This past weekend, I had the loveliest time in the city where I stayed at The Roger hotel in NoMad. I arrived early in the afternoon on Friday and checked in before heading out to lunch, but came back soon after to explore. You guys, this hotel is pretty cute!
The first thing that drew me in was the striped awnings outside. As you can tell, I'm a sucker for stripes but the interior didn't disappoint either. Since it is a boutique hotel, the lobby had a cozy but chic vibe with velvet couches, a little bar, and a happy hour on weeknights.
The Roger has a religious history, having been built in 1930 on property leased from the Madison Avenue Baptist Church and is named after 17th century theologian and abolitionist Roger Williams, who founded the first Baptist church in America.
When I choose hotels in the city, I tend to pick ones in the NoMad area because it's the most convenient location for most of the things I like to do. When it comes to The Roger, the 33rd Street Station is just a five minute walk and takes you just about anywhere you'd want to go on the 6 train. Whether it's The Roger, The Ace, The Chandler, The James, or The Nomad Hotel, hotels in this are are highly recommended by me.
