Don't bother. Really. What a nightmare ! Please believe me. This is totally misrepresented on the website. At 8pm out took 20 mins to book in as the rooms (rooms huh - bunks? Closets?!) weren't ready. Noisy and grubby. No apologies for my anger about...More

Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita
maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant
retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for

the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry,
Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping,
