INNSiDE by Meliá New York NoMad


The INNSiDE by Meliá New York NoMad offers the perfect base for explorers looking to get out and enjoy all that the ‘city that never sleeps’ has to offer, yet provides solid accommodations to return to, should you also want to get some rest.

The first time we ever set eyes on and fell in love with the Big Apple, we stayed close to where the INNSiDE by Meliá New York NoMad is situated, so arriving here already brought back great memories for us.

This Midtown Manhattan locale now has a new name: NoMad, but don’t confuse this renaming for an attempt by the hotel to ‘hipster’ up what they call their hotel guests… it means ‘North of Madison Square Park’, coined by the real-estate moguls of this rapidly up and coming neighbourhood.

In any case, the property stands in a fantastic, central location, perfect for exploring the length and breadth of Manhattan. Within a few blocks walk, we were at Highline. Greenwich Village is just to the south and Union Square is to the East. We even walked up for a quintessential tourist selfie in Times Square and enjoyed the OutThere delights of Hell’s Kitchen.

The INNSiDE by Meliá brand is all about contemporary, unfussy, and convenient stays, with location being everything. Our INNSiDE King room here was quite minimalist and a little on the small side, which is not uncommon for a Manhattan hotel room; but it was extremely comfortable. As we were out exploring the city for a lot of the time in NYC, the room’s size didn’t matter too much. However, we’d recommend that OutThere guests book rooms on the higher floors, as they offer some more spectacular views of the iconic Manhattan skyline and provide the illusion of more space.

You could also go the whole hog and book one of the hotel’s unique, spacious suites (coming complete with outdoor terraces) to make the most of the fact that you are in the very centre of the city.

A particular highlight of our stay was Jose Molina’s signature restaurant, The Wilson which offered seafood-inspired dishes. We enjoyed its casual and classic interpretations of high-quality, northeastern-American-style seafood.

If you are looking for a luxury hotel experience in NYC and the very best in personalised service then maybe the INNSiDE by Meliá New York NoMad isn’t for you. But, if you want a convenient base to get out and explore NYC from and an upbeat, simple, but functional hotel that feels inherently connected to the beating heart of this amazing city, then this could be a perfect match. Plus, the hotel is a Queer Destinations Committed property, which means that staff there has gone through rigorous training to meet the needs of LGBTQ+ travellers and ensures a warm and inclusive welcome.

While you’re Out There
While the property is not huge, there is an ample contemporary gym and fitness centre for those wanting to work out while away, equipped with multi-functional weightlifting, toning and stretching stations. There are also ample free weights, Wexer spin bikes and a Swiss ball BOSU balance trainer.

If stretching your neck and your view outside the gym is what you’re after, then the iconic Empire State Building is just 6 to 7 blocks away.
