We stayed at the Nolitan with a family group for my son's wedding a few days after Christmas. We received a pretty good rate for Manhattan as a group booking, and we all had a good stay!
The rooms are very small but very efficiently laid out. We said it reminded us of those sample display rooms at IKEA! The bed was outstanding, especially the linens, some of the best we have ever slept on. The shower configuration was interesting, with glass walls on opposite sides, and a curtain on the room side for privacy but none on the sink side (and no door). Having the toilet in a separate little room helps.
There is no dresser or place to open a suitcase other than the bed, but the closet is large enough to store everything. We had emptied the mini-fridge (it is FULL of items to purchase!) and used it to cool our own drinks.
The continental breakfast is minimal, but the items that are available are tasty. There are no tables in the lobby, but several comfy seating areas to relax and have your pastry and coffee or tea.
The weather during our stay was cold and wet, so we did not use the complimentary bikes (although we saw some people returning theirs after using them in the rain!). The walk to the Spring Street subway station isn't bad, 2-3 blocks. It's a good location, as long as you are willing to use the subway or a taxi to get to Times Square and beyond. The area around the hotel is fun, with several nice shops and cafes.
They were remodeling the restaurant while we were there, which included a temporary lobby entrance, but it was not a problem. We parked our car in the garage across the street and did not use it again until we left. It's not very clear (at least to us non-Manhattanites!) what the procedure is, but you pull in and stop by the office door just off the street. They will come out and give you a ticket, then park your car for you. (They will also do this from the hotel, but it is more expensive. To do it yourself at the garage is only about 20 yards further than the hotel entrance!) I only mention this because we were thinking we would be parking it ourselves, and have time to gather our things from the van at that time. Instead, we had to kind of scramble to get everything we needed out of the van to take it across the street to the hotel. Not a big deal, just something we were not aware of.
We enjoyed our stay and, depending on price, would choose the Nolitan again for a Manhattan stay.
