Away from home, a clean room, comfortable bed, and decent food are the bare minimum required by most guests.  However, for discerning individuals looking for an experience far more fulfilling, a new wave of boutique hotels is the perfect answer to our travel prayers.

Tucked in Nolita (‘North of Little Italy’), The Nolitan, is a relative newcomer to the age-old hustle and bustle of New York City, having opened its doors in 2011. Nonetheless, this stylish hotel offers design-hungry guests the ingredients of a perfect stay- cutting-edge architecture, modern interiors, culinary comfort and an abundance of complimentary perks (including bicycle and skateboard rentals for cruising the city streets in style).

The structure itself, designed by the architectural team at Grzywinski+Pons, is testament to excellence, predicated on quality, beauty, innovation, and a rigorous approach to detail. Married with interiors by Meyers Davis, a firm renowned for its chic, modern aesthetic, The Nolitan is a recipe for design and travel success.

During a recent stay, we fell in love with this neighborhood gem, tucked among some of our favorite Nolita shoppes and eateries. The hotel’s newest culinary addition, Cantine Parisienne, went straight after our heart; nothing better than cozying up to cocktails at a Carrera marble bar, outfitted beautifully with Tolix stools and Brendan Ravenhill lighting.  A pinch of France on Kenmare Street? Mais oui!

Because The Nolitan is unquestionably too good to call our own, we’re thrilled to share the experience! Readers of Around the Pound, and fans of The Gilded Lobster, can enjoy a summer savings of 10% off The Nolitan’s best available rate, along with a late checkout of 2pm, (critical for surviving late night adventures).  To take advantage of this offer, call the hotel directly for reservations, 212.925.2555, and mention code: The Gilded Lobster (TGL).

Enjoy your stay, and be sure to share your comments on our fan page. We’d love to hear what you enjoyed most about The Nolitan (not to worry, chic lighting and tufted chesterfields are on our list too).
