Set behind a memorable facade of floating positive-negative Tetris bricks, the Nolitan is a great find situated between two of the most popular New York neighborhoods: SoHo and the Village. Tuck into a good book in the inviting lobby lounge, or head upstairs to your stylish pad – a scene that looks straight out of a CB2 catalog.

Wi-fi and bike use is complimentary, as are the vino and cheese during happy hour (Monday to Saturday). Online room rates can slide well below $300, so always keep an eye out.
