New York, a continent within a city, is the perfect symbol of the American “melting pot.” Times Square with its gleaming neon signs, Central Park with its roller bladers, Broadway, Chinatown, Greenwich Village, Little Italy, Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn and Staten Islandare all areas that form the powerful identity of the city.
Chinatown possesses the largest Chinese population in the western world, the Lower East Side has become chic Bohemian and Chelsea is known for its artistic life. The wealthy Upper East Side is considered to be a very conservative quarter, whereas the Upper West Side is more or less intellectual.
In the heart of Manhattan, between Union Square and the southern end of Central Park, we find what is known as Midtown, the business area and the site of chic boutiques and department stores like the famous Macy’s, as well as some of the city’s tallest skyscrapers. It’s also the location of the immense Grand Central Station for suburban and national train lines, and Central Park, a huge haven of greenery in the midst of an urban jungle.
Immense and tentacular, New York requires lots of walking to feel its immensity, to observe its diversity and to understand what makes it such a unique city.
Design, chic and trendy
In the heart of the borough of Manhattan, between Midtown and Downtown, a few blocks from the famous Little Italy and Chinatown quarters, the Nolitan Hotel is the ideal venue for discovering the island on foot.
Its elegant lines, both classic and modern, are the work of Grzywinski and Pons, the same architects who created the Hotel on Rivington. The Nolitan is one of the rare young and trendy boutique hotels in this authentic New York quarter. Thanks to its location at the angle of Kenmare and Elizabeth Streets, large glass angular domes were created to allow a maximum of light to enter the suites.
The tone is set as soon as you enter the building with a space opening onto the street made of raw wood, glass, polished concrete, leather and metal in shades of gray, red and white.
We are in a design hotel but one with warmth, thanks to the fabrics used and the comfortable furniture. The reception area is on the mezzanine, and the salon looking down onto the street offers visitors a different perspective of life outside. An immense screen, made of inclining mirrored panels, divides the space in two, bringing the outdoor activity inside.
We find the same pure and design ambiance in the Nolitan’s 55 rooms. Without being minimalist, the décor is light and the furniture, elegant and upscale. Space here is partitioned thanks to glass panels, and the bathrooms open onto the outside, offering guests a spectacular view of the city.
After a mad day of running around Manhattan, a relaxing moment in one of the huge library’s leather armchairs near the reception area for a cup of tea or a glass of wine is extremely welcome. And for a typically American dinner, the very trendy J&S Food Hall restaurant run by Chef Jimmy Bradley is a perfect choice.
The contrast of textures, the design yet warm décor, and the personal attention of the friendly staff makes this chic, and trendy boutique hotel a jewel of luxury and comfort.
If you want to use the Internet and you don’t have your computer with you, the hotel will be glad to lend you a laptop or even a Next Generation game console.
