Just finished a wonderful stay at the Nolitan Hotel. While the area isn't quite as trendy as some places nearby, it does have a nice vibe and felt relatively safe even late at night (some bits of the nearby Bowery, by comparison, felt distinctly seedy). There's also a good variety of restaurants and pubs/bars nearby. The Nolitan is only a 5-10 minute walk from the great shopping on Broadway, and the nearest subway station (Spring Street) is likewise only a 5 minute walk away and will get you to midtown in less than 15 minutes on the 6 line (the entrance to the uptown platform is just next to the Duane Reade on the corner of Spring and Lafayette Streets).
The rooms themselves are on the small-ish side but well laid out and very comfortable (especially for the price, which was much better than a lot of the other options in the area). The bathrooms in particular are much larger than you'd expect relative to the overall size of the room, and the glass shower looking out onto the room is unusual but helps to make the room feel bigger than it is. The bed was one of the most comfortable that I've come across in a hotel, although a fair bit of street noise does reach the rooms (unless you're a particularly light sleeper, though, it shouldn't be enough to cause problems). The front desk staff were friendly and obliging without being overbearing, and my room was always cleaned to an impeccable standard. Free wifi is available for guests, although speeds can be on the slow side.
The only (very minor) downside of the location is that taxis weren't that easy to hail on Kenmare Street, but if you walk around the corner to the Bowery you won't have any trouble finding one.
