I recently stayed at The Nolitan on a whim when I found a super low rate of $143.20 on their website for a Neighborhood Room. I had been wanting to stay here since they opened, so I thought I'd take advantage of the great rate & glad I did- I really loved my room! Ben checked me in & he was a great first impression- he was relaxed, cool, super friendly & upgraded me to a Cityscape room on the top floor of the hotel, which was the 9th floor- thanks Ben!
I was in room 901- my room was quite small, with cool hardwood floors, a concrete ceiling, a slim wooden desk with an awesome chair, Rose scented Red Flower Bath products that were lovely, super comfy bed with soft linens & great pillows, amazing shower, & an awesome view of the Williamsburg bridge! I loved the feel of the room & was very comfortable! When I called down I was able to extend until 2pm (check out is at 1pm, which is very nice to begin with!) & the hotel provided a delectable little chocolate treat on my bed at turndown service- really nice touch, including the weather card for the next day.
However, there are a few things that you should keep in my mind when staying at The Nolitan- even though I was on the highest floor in the building, my room was noisy; not terribly loud, but I could hear traffic & people outside if my window was cracked open for fresh air- I live in the city, so this doesn't really bother me, just something to keep in mind- I can only imagine the lower floors are incredibly noisy. For a brand new building, the Elevators are noisy, I could hear a cell phone conversation two rooms away as I was sitting on my bed, the a/c & heating unit was freakishly loud, so I just turned it OFF completely, as it was a cool night in NYC & the windows & building have really bad soundproofing. Housekeeping was very loud around 9am outside of my room. None of this ruined my stay, but the hotel has really poor insulation to block the noise, which is really unfortunate for a new building.
Also, the restaurant is closed, so the hotel is offering a light Continental breakfast in the lobby- the selection when I arrived around 9:45a was really low- a few pastries, yogurt, & a few pieces of whole fruit with half filled carafes of juice. The Danish I had was quite good! The hotel has no room service right now, but providing menus from local neighborhood restaurants for delivery service. The mini bar was decent, with all items reasonably priced.
Overall, I'm glad I stayed at The Nolitan- I really adored my room & loved the hardwood floors, the incredible bed & the lovely rain shower! It was a room that I really didn't want to leave, as I love clean, modern lines that were used in the hotel. The only negative towards the hotel in my opinion was the lack of soundproofing- otherwise, a cool, cute hotel in an amazing part of NYC!
