My wife and I stayed here for three days. The hotel is new from the ground up and very ingeniously designed in a minimalist style that is very efficient. Our room on the 8th floor had a functioning balcony with a direct view of Midtown and the Empire State and Chysler buildings. Kenmare is simply an extension of Delancey which leads directly to the Williamsburg Bridge, a beautiful sight all lit up at night. And you can view it all up on the 10th floor roof, which is easy to access and set up for visitors. The staff are well-trained and truly enjoy their jobs and the guests. Each night there is a free happy hour from 5-7 pm with wine, cheese, assorted fruits and nuts and crackers. The rates are quite reasonable for what you get, and I like the Euro-feel of the place. The location is close to fine dining and easy walks to The Village or longer ones Battery Park, which took about 45 minutes. We will definitely return to the Nolitan.
