I absolutely LOVE this hotel. My husband and I’ve stayed here 3 times within the last year and twice just this month (Sept. 2017), so by now it feels very familiar. And I like the neighborhood a lot.
It’s just as good these two times as the first time. During our 2nd visit, we stayed in a Deluxe King Room on the 9th floor, facing the street (W 27th). You really feel like you’re in the city, because you can hear the sounds from the street throughout the day and night.
We had a few issues with the room on our 1st day – a clogged sink and a power outage. Both times, when we called to the front desk, they sent somebody immediately to fix the problems. These issues can happen anywhere, but I was really impressed with the service and how quickly someone came to our room.
In the heart of the Big Apple
Enjoy New York as if you were the star of a movie in this centrally located, modern hotel in Chelsea with suites with terraces and spectacular views of the Empire State Building. Broadway and Times Square are just a few minutes walk away.

During our 3rd visit, we stayed in a Queen Guestroom on the 3rd floor (just above the gym), which was slightly smaller and facing away from the street. We were looking out at another building and down on the terrace in front of the gym on the 2nd floor. This room was so nice, because it was so quiet.
The staff at the hotel is really nice, and I feel like they try to help you as much and as best as they can with whatever issues, questions or requests you may have.
We missed the live music in the evenings, because we decided to go out for dinner instead. But the hotel does have a really lively bar & restaurant with an outdoor terrace and I’ve heard that it’s good.
PROs: Comfortable beds, complimentary mini bar (juices, Coca Cola and water), coffee & tea, wall-mounted (large) bottles of shampoo/conditioner/body wash, gym and complimentary WIFI.
CONs: Very little closet space and few hangers, limited space around the bathroom sink for toiletries and very few knobs in the bathroom to hang towels, etc..
The Neighborhood: There are some good places to eat close to the hotel for “grab & go” food like at Pret A Manger, Gigi’s Café, Dr Smood or Starbucks. You can easily walk to “Curry Hill”, Mad. Sq. Eats and there’s also a Korean BBQ restaurant just down the street.
There are a couple of supermarkets nearby too, e.g. Whole Foods, Trader Joe’s and The Fresh Market and a pharmacy just down the street.
The Highline is about a 10 min walk away (entrance on 26th Street & 10th Avenue).
As far as the location goes, I don’t think it can get much better. You can easily walk everywhere and we walked a lot in both directions – south to the Lower East Side (Greenwich Village, SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown, etc.) and uptown past Madison Square Garden, Grand Central Station, to the theater district and Columbus Circle.
Overall, I think that the quality and location of the Innside is really good and it’s definitely my preferred hotel in New York City.
Innside New York Nomad is located on 132 West 27th Street, 10001 New York.
