Exposed concrete; check. Retro fittings; check. Floor to ceiling windows; check. Super-cool branding; check… It may well be months behind schedule, but Nolita’s very own boutique/design/style/luxury (*delete where appropriate) hotel fits the bill on pretty much everything we adore about hotels.
There’s sumptuous luxury, there’s du jour style, there’s indulgence and sophistication, and there’s the location; North Of Little Italy – bordered by SoHo, Little Italy, Chinatown, the Bowery and the Lower East Side – is definitely one of Manhattan’s hippest spots. The Nolitan Hotel is the latest in a long list of recent Manhattan hotel openings but it’s certainly one of our most anticipated, and the reality certainly lives up to that expectation; thanks, largely, to Grzywinski+Pons‘ über-chic design.
From its crisp, urban architecture and staggering interiors that echo ‘the most stylish apartment you’ll never own’, through an endless list of quirky and very personal services – a long-overdue check-out time of 2pm, branded skateboards and doggie grooming, no less – The Nolitan is a neighbourhood hotel that is the personification of a ‘home away from home’. But, be careful, you may never, ever, ever want to leave.
