Hotels these days offer all kinds of quirky amenities, like in-room beer taps, customized aromatherapy, and record players with vinyl, but this new offering from The James New York – NoMad turns the typical cultural experience to an occultural one.
The hotel will host its own witch-in-residence for the month of October offering astrology, “real ass hexing,” love conjuring, tarot, and more. Guests can book experiences with Shawn Engel, the in-house, on-demand witch-in-residence, through the hotel’s digital concierge.

Engel will join guests at the hotel for a look into their past and future with offerings such as:
- Abundant AF Astrology: Engel calculates the guest’s natal birth chart to offer guidance on how to utilize their chart to manifest.
- Hex Your Ex: This masterclass focuses on inner child healing, protection magick, and real ass hexing; it’s available online only to be enjoyed at leisure during a hotel stay.
- Love Conjuring Spellwork: Engel reads tarot cards, then uses the information she receives from her guides to help design each guest’s very own love spell.
- Spirits and Shadow Work: Through tarot, numerology, a pendulum, and astrology, Engel will pinpoint what needs changing in order to thrive with a unique and personalized approach.
