New York, New York, July 11, 2011 – Some things are just worth waiting for! The Nolitan will officially open its doors for business on August 1st. Located at the corner of Kenmare and Elizabeth Streets, The Nolitan Hotel is the first boutique hotel to grace Nolita – one of the most endearing and authentic neighborhoods in New York City. The Nolitan offers guests much more than luxurious design accommodations, unique amenities and fantastic food: it provides a genuine New York experience, a real sense of belonging and incredibly personal service. It’s the kind of “luxury meets low-key” hotel you always wished you could find in New York City.
The intimate hotel has 55 rooms, which means every guest can expect personalized attention and intuitive service. The Nolitan is hard at work making you feel at home BEFORE you even check in. Each reservation is followed up on with a direct email asking guests to complete a personal profile. The questions asked, enables the staff to anticipate needs and provide customized service. From the right pillow type, to arranging for organic groceries in your room, organizing your gym schedule or even booking a bath for your dog, making each and every guest feel at home is what The Nolitan is all about.
Creating a place that connects visitors to the neighborhood in an authentic way is at the heart of this project. The Nolitan was created by Veracity Development, which has deep roots in this community and is fully invested in the long-term growth and prosperity of Nolita.
“Nolita is one of the last quintessential places offering a real New York experience. It’s a place full of commerce, culture and New York characters. It’s a very special place that is dear to my heart,” says Edmond Li, Owner of Veracity Development. “With The Nolitan Hotel, I hope to share this place with citizens of the world, while creating a hub for the neighborhood that year-round residents can enjoy. The Nolitan Hotel is both a luxury boutique property and a neighborhood place where everyone will feel at home.”
“The Nolitan Hotel is a place where you feel well-tended, amused, comfortable and above all, at ease. We offer impeccable service that is friendly, not fussy. We’re a luxury hotel that values warmth, being down-to-earth and making genuine human connections with our guests. Expect to be greeted by first name when you stay at The Nolitan,” explains The Nolitan Hotel General Manager Patrik Horstmann. “We’re a place where we welcome your friends, your pets and your quirky requests. We’re your home when you’re here, and we treat you like family.”
Architecture & Design
The Nolitan was designed by Grzywinski+Pons, a New York City based practice that really understands the character of Nolita. Principals Matthew Grzywinski and Amador Pons worked closely with Veracity Development to create an authentic neighborhood place that both reflects and enhances the unique character of Nolita.
The design of the hotel emphasizes connectivity with the architecture of Nolita. The ground floor has a glass façade, integrating the hotel into the neighborhood around it. Some guests can enjoy the street life from their private balconies; other guests can enjoy floor to ceiling windows in their rooms that provide an unobstructed view of the neighborhood and the magnificent skyline. The use of channel glass in the rooms opens up the space to the streetscape below without compromising privacy.
Since The Nolitan is about feeling at home and like a part of the community, creating comfortable and welcoming public spaces in the hotel was essential. The Nolitan features a lobby lounge, the on-site restaurant ellabess and a breathtaking rooftop.
Guest rooms come in a variety of shapes and sizes (eight types to be exact). There are Neighborhood rooms and Cityscape rooms – some with private balconies and others with floor to ceiling windows. There’s something for everyone at The Nolitan.
Each hotel room features a king or queen size bed, beautiful hardwood oak floors and Corian® accented bathrooms appointed with rain shower fixtures, plush bathrobes and bath amenities by Nolita’s own Red Flower. Most guest rooms have an open bathroom layout and a separate WC. Modern amenities such as 37” HD flat screen televisions by LG, iPod enabled stereos by Vers and premium in-room entertainment are standard in all guest rooms.
The hotel prides itself on providing guests with an affordable mini bar with a wide variety of offerings from classic standards like M&Ms to health-conscious choices like coconut water and Pop Chips, and peanut allergy sensitive products like non-factory made cookies.
Services & Amenities
The Nolitan Hotel’s services and amenities provide all the comforts of home combined with the luxury that makes staying in a boutique hotel special. To provide superior service, The Nolitan has created a suite of services and amenities that truly distinguish the hotel.
