Thomas Juul-Hansen to redesign historic James hotel at NY’s NoMad

Located at Madison Avenue and 29th Street, the former Carlton Hotel will be updated to reopen in June.

James Hotels will debut a property in Manhattan’s NoMad neighborhood this June. Located at Madison Avenue and 29th Street, the former Carlton Hotel will be updated by locally based designer Thomas Juul-Hansen.

The property–which will be housed within an early 20th-century beaux-arts-style building–will have 344 guestrooms, including 28 suites, with design elements said to be reminiscent of the treasures global nomads collect during their travels.

John Meadow’s New York-based restaurant group, LDV Hospitality, will serve as the hotel’s F&B partner with plans to open several on-site concepts, including the Scarpetta restaurant and bar/lounge. The property will also include 4,500 sq. ft. of event space, including a grand ballroom and four private meeting spaces.
