Hmmm...so we're guessing a Spring 2010 hotel opening is out of the question? Actually we found the answer right on the hotel's website. It now says "Opening 2011."
The NoMad has pulled this sort of stunt before, hosting a W magazine back in November. But the Standard Hotel initiated this pre-opening tactic first, hosting a Construction Chic party in September of 2008. We're not fans of any designer imposters here but we understand why the Nomad want copy the Standard's successful strategies especially considering that the golden child of the hipster hotel world, the Ace Hotel, is just next door. But having us wait until 2011? Big, big, BIG faux pas.
