Denihan Hospitality taps new managing director of two James Hotels in NYC

The James New York - NoMad recently opened.

Denihan Hospitality, an independent owner and operator of boutique hotels in New York and Chicago, appointed Patrick Horstmann as managing director of The James New York – NoMad and James New York – SoHo.

Horstmann joins the Denihan team shortly following the soft opening of The James New York - NoMad, located at 29th Street and Madison Avenue. Designer Thomas Juul-Hansen transformed the 344-room property with today's modern traveler in mind. Later this year, LDV Hospitality's signature restaurant, Scarpetta, along with a new cocktail bar concept, is arriving to the newest property.

Through a modern lens, The James New York - NoMad embraces the brand's core identity through "connection, consciousness and community" in both its design and the guest experience.
