We were in New York for a week and stayed at the boutique Nolitan Hotel with our families. Given we were booking four rooms for a week we made our booking direct with the hotel.
It was the first time we had stayed in this area of Manhattan and following our visit we would most definitely look to stay in the same area if, and when, we come back to New York. It proved easy to navigate Manhattan with a number of subway stations nearby. In addition there are ample bars, restaurants and shops in the neighbourhood that we made good use of and gave a real community feel that you don’t necessarily get in Times Square.
We booked a Cityscape Corner room and we were allocated room 902 – would recommend. The room was both spacious and clean and from our experience of other NY hotels offered excellent value for money. We both liked the ‘industrial’ feel of the unfinished concrete ceiling. The other finishes in the room were all of high quality.
The bed was both large and very comfortable and neither of us had any issues sleeping. Even the traffic noise from down below didn’t cause us any major issues although it may have been more of an issue if you had been sleeping on one of the lower floors.
Both the shower and free-standing bath in our room were great. The shower was large and powerful which makes such a difference from a weak shower that gives you barely a trickle of water. The free-standing bath was large and provided great views of the Empire State Building as we lay relaxing in the tub. As it is ‘part’ of the room it may be a little strange for those who like to sit in the bath in total privacy but it wasn’t something that bothered us.
As our room was on the top floor, occupied a corner position, and had floor to ceiling windows we had amazing views of the mid-town skyline (Empire State Building, Chrysler Building, etc) and also east towards the Williamburg Bridge. Equally, you could go to the roof-top of the hotel and get fantastic views in the same directions but also towards the financial district.
WiFi was available in rooms (and public areas) free - as it should be! There was good coverage and we never experienced any issues connecting or major issues with speed (iPhone and iPad usage).
There was a continental breakfast included free but it was only fruit juice, tea/coffee and bagels/pastries. A selection of cereals and fruit would have been a nice addition. Hopefully this will improve once the new restaurant opens later this month.
Overall we would highly recommend the Nolitan Hotel. It provided a great base for us for our trip and we loved the style and feel of the hotel. Service from staff was superb and we can’t fault them. All staff from front desk to housekeeping were always happy to help you.
