Spend More Time with Family and Friends

For many people, traveling far and wide is at the top of their New Year’s resolutions. The good thing about traveling is that it’s more than just a time for self-discovery and reconnecting with yourself, it can also be an opportunity to strengthen bonds with those you love the most. Creating long-lasting memories, sharing unique experiences, and deepening your personal connections, are just some advantages of traveling. At the same time, you also get to spend more quality time with loved ones. Stay at one of The James NoMad Jimmy Suites and experience spacious accommodations while enjoying separate living and sleeping areas. Plus, you’ll have the advantage of being centrally located to all the culture and happenings in New York City, which will be perfect for creating unforgettable memories with those closest to you.

Be More Adventurous

Nothing can put you out of your comfort zone and pull you out of a professional or personal slump better than traveling. Pushing your limits helps you expand your perspective. This could mean anything from learning a new language, or exploring an expansive city full of art, culture, and delicious food! Being adventurous means different things to different people — your definition could be as big as making it to the top of The Empire State Building or as simple as trying to find the best pizza slice in New York City! The key is trying something you might not have tried before and finding a more confident, knowledgeable, and exciting you! Whatever your trip to New York City might look like, The James NoMad staff is friendly and informed. They will be more than happy to assist you and recommend adventures for your time in The Big Apple!

Reduce Stress

Taking yourself out of your daily routine can be a restorative reset that helps you fend off burnout. Don’t be afraid of using some of your vacation days. Taking time off work and wandering into a different setting can make a difference in calming an overwhelmed mind and reducing stress and cortisol levels. Recharging your batteries can come in many forms. The James NoMad is known for being an oasis of calm in the middle of the concrete jungle, and we aim to make your stay as relaxing as possible as soon as you enter through our doors. Recent travel trends indicate that well-being is important to travelers. You can manage your stress levels with The James NoMad and keep your other New Year’s resolution of being more active by visiting our fully equipped fitness center located on Floor 3. Our gym features state-of-the-art equipment, yoga mats, and even Peloton bikes! You can also experience deeper relaxation while staying at The James NoMad with our partners at Exhale Medspa. Our guests enjoy priority access, and a $25 voucher to this local Luxury Spa & Fitness Company just steps away from the hotel.

Eat Healthily

Let’s face it, some of us eat recklessly and without a care in the world while traveling. At The James NoMad, we believe in true balance. Even though there are many tempting and convenient unhealthy food options — packaged snacks, fast food, airplane meals — travel also presents you with the opportunity of trying new cuisines and branching out to equally nutritious and decadent meals. Our partner, Scarpetta, relies on seasonal, locally sourced ingredients to create rich and bold flavors. Their expertly trained chefs have developed an iconic menu of elevated Italian dishes: the classic spaghetti tomato and basil is like you’ve never tasted before, the fresh yellowtail crudo will have you feeling refreshed and satisfied, and the creamy polenta tastes just like Italian grandmothers make it. Since balance is everything, they also have an expansive bar and café offerings that’ll let you indulge with something a little alcoholic, a little sweet, like the Espresso Martini that has been taking New York City by storm. Of course, the best part of having a delicious restaurant right in our hotel is that you don’t have to prepare your meals — you only have to focus on savoring every last bite.

Pursue Your Career Ambitions

The last couple of years have seen a rise in remote work, and a new exciting travel trend is that of the digital nomads, who prefer to work from anywhere in the world while maintaining a nine to five routine. You can make anywhere your office and WFJ —Work from The James— with our complimentary WiFi service and plush accommodations, be it in your room or our hotel lobby! Even if you’re traveling purely for pleasure, you can still use this time to scope out new opportunities for your career development. For example, did you know that The James NoMad has plenty of space in our cellar level to host conferences and business meetings? The James NoMad offers approximately 5,000 square feet of meeting space, ideal for multi-day meetings, panels, photoshoots, and even cocktail receptions or private dinners. 

All work and no play can make anyone dull, so don’t forget to visit the hotel’s speakeasy, The Seville, for a night of delicious drinks, food, and unparalleled atmosphere. Mingle with your coworkers or loved ones at our cocktail bar and be transported to a bygone New York with a modern twist. Plus live music will bring on great vibes and even better memories!
