Arrival/Check-In: INNSIDE New York Nomad is the first of its brand in the United States following a successful string of contemporary, chic hotels in Europe. Its location in Chelsea was perfect for my quick, one-night stay.
After an all-day seminar, I was eager to check in and relax. The friendly, welcoming greeting from the front desk staff shifted the momentum of my day. After a quick check-in, another pleasant member of the staff escorted me to the elevator, showed me to my room and assisted me with my room key.
Guest Quarters: As I entered my room, I was immersed in the natural light filling the 60 square feet, thanks to the oversized, nearly floor-to-ceiling windows. The room was modern, clean and almost all white, save for the lime green accent pillows. Tight quarters are to be expected in New York City, but the layout of the room allowed ample space, function and light, which really opened up the room. The modern, stylish design felt comfortable and inviting.
The small, European-style bathroom featured a modern rain shower and large white vanity sink. The full-sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner and body wash in the shower were an interesting change, allowing guests to use as much or as little product as necessary, cutting out the waste of small bottles replaced every day. I appreciated the eco-friendly efforts I noticed throughout the room, which boasted water conservation and other green service practices.
Services/Amenities: After I got settled, a hotel staff member hand-delivered a plate of fruit with a welcoming note — a nice touch. The complimentary minibar stocked with water, soda and juice added a level of comfort and convenience. Room service is not available 24 hours, but that shouldn’t be an issue in the city that never sleeps.
The Impero Caffè by Scott Conant is a full-service venue with a beautiful lounge, bar and dining space. The alfresco, street-side dining offers another European touch to this New York City establishment.
By far, my favorite amenity was the ultra-comfortable robe provided. Made from sweatshirt material and complete with a hood, this became my favorite accessory for the night.
The Experience: I found the INNSIDE staff welcoming and gracious and the guest quarters comfortable and light. The hotel sits within a short walking distance of Penn Station, shopping, dining and sightseeing, so I was able to make the most of my night in the city before leaving the next day. The accessibility of the city’s main highlights is tough to beat and made my quick stay efficient and enjoyable.
Overall, my experience at INNSIDE New York Nomad was a breeze. I enjoyed the modern and European design of the space, excellent service and ideal location. For anyone taking a quick jaunt to the city for business or looking to relax and enjoy the sights, INNSIDE New York Nomad is a hidden, affordable gem.
