New York City is one of our favorite cities to travel to. We visit often for work but love getting to see friends, explore new eats and see new sights. There is always something to do in the city. However, most of our trips revolve around work so I want to share where to stay on a New York City work trip. Innside New York Nomad is known as an urban hotel for the work tripper. Centrally located in NoMad, it’s close to all the cool neighborhoods and big attractions. Our first meeting was a five-minute walk from the hotel. Talk about convenient! Plus, Innside New York Nomad has everything you need to work in your room and then get ready for business meetings or go out for dinner with colleagues.
The first thing I noticed upon checking in was how spacious the room was for a New York City Hotel. There is enough room for our checked luggage, carry-ons and personal items. We were in a Deluxe King room with a city view and it didn’t disappoint. We could see Freedom Tower and to say it was stunning would be an understatement. In our room, there are plenty of plugs and USB ports. We had no issues finding a place to charge our camera, phones, laptops, Apple Watches, Airpods and any other gadget you could think of! I’ll say this is a very welcome feature and one of the reasons why this hotel is where to stay on a New York City work trip.
Right after you get your room key and walk into the elevator, you’ll feel a sense of hospitality. The map illustrations in the elevator are by Dave Draws and can instantly put into perspective where you are in relation to the city. As you can tell by the photo above, Innside New York Nomad is close to the Flat Iron Building and the Empire State Building. Our room was perched on floor 16 out of 21. There are mirrors along the hall and right when you walk out of your room. I love this because you’re able to know exactly how you look and won’t risk having a wardrobe malfunction as you walk into your next meeting. That’s a big no no.
Speaking of wardrobe, there is a good amount of closet space where you can hang up your clothes. I was able to comfortably hang and organize both my clothes and Johnny’s on this trip. There are two dresser drawers, which we left our folded clothes in. Another rarity for New York City hotels is the space in the bathroom. There is a counter you can place toiletries on and a deep drawer for other belongings. The bathrooms come equipped with necessities such as a shaving kit if you forget yours.
The hashtag for this hotel is #worktripping. The reason why it’s where to stay on a New York City work trip is the workspace inside the room. WiFi is free, there is a desk where you can comfortably sit and work. There are plenty of USB ports and charging outlets. No need to fight over who gets to charge because they are at less than 10 percent, ha! Another plus are the nighttime lamps so you don’t disturb your roommate if you stay up late. Since the hotel was located in NoMad, Johnny and I were able to come into the room in between meetings to catch up on work before heading back out. Since the hotel is in such a good location, it wasn’t out of the way to swing back, kick off our shoes and just exhale.
Of course, the bed is very comfortable and there is a mix of firm and soft pillows to ensure you get a good night’s sleep. A bonus I loved is how there are fresh cookies in the lobby at times. It’s a fun little perk, probably meant for children, I enjoyed! While New York City is known for its food scene, sometimes it’s just not practical to go out to eat. The Wilson, located on the first floor, has all day dining including seafood and craft cocktails. We walked by breakfast one morning and it looked divine.
We truly loved our stay at Innside New York NoMad and are so thankful they hosted us for a portion of our trip.
