We stayed for nine nights at the Nolitan in May and have nothing but good things to say about the hotel and staff.
Firstly, and importantly for us, this purpose built boutique hotel has great soundproofing between walls and floors - so, no real noise from other guests/rooms. Sure, NYC is one noisy city, and the constant outside noise does seep in through the double glazing, but that's just part of being in Manhattan. If you're bothered by horns, traffic, sirens etc, I'd say go for a room on one of the top floors without a balcony (you'll also get the views over Manhattan to the Empire State from there). We tried both rooms with, and without balconies, and although the balcony is fun, it does give you a little less room space and it's a tad noisier. Anyway, the roof terrace is a fab spot for taking in the panoramic Manhattan skyline, so no need for a balcony really.
The rooms are cleverly designed in a sleek, minimalist style with lots of concrete, white paint, muted tones and glass. The generous sized shower and separate toilet are nicely integrated into the room design. Air con is a bit noisy (a couple of other guests complained to us about that) but we only needed to use the overhead fan, so no problem for us. Overall, the staff were fabulous, and just on the right side of chatty while maintaining a high level of professionalism.
The hotel also offers a free cocktail hour between 5-7pm in the foyer which is a great way to meet other guests and chat with the friendly and helpful staff. You can also grab your drink and some snacks and head up to the roof terrace which was never busy.
The best recommendation I can give is that when we're next in Manhattan, we'll stay at the Nolitan.
