TRAVEL: New York - The Nolitan in Lower Manhattan

TRAVEL: New York - The Nolitan in Lower Manhattan
New York - Concrete jungle where dreams are made of, there's nothing you can't do now you're in New York (sang beautifully just like Alicia Keys). Personally, being in New York does give me a sense of 'anything can happen here'. Like most cities it's filled with endless adventures, opportunities and experiences but there's something extra when you're in New York. It's an incredible place to visit and if you ever get a chance to then I'd highly recommend grabbing it with both hands.


A lot of tourists head to Central Manhattan, as it's a hub of activtiy and tourist attractions, but I wouldn't discount Lower Manhattan as your base either. It's quieter, more affordable and just as quirky. The Nolitan is a boutique luxury hotel based in Nolita in the North of Little Italy (I've never seen so many Italian restaurants in such a small place.) On our honeymoon we stayed in the Neighbourhood Corner room, which has a beautiful open plan bathroom/bedroom, king size bed, floor-to-ceiling windows and a rain shower. The hotel is filled with luxurious touches, friendly staff and stunning views of Central Manhattan. The roof top sundeck is the place to be when the sun is setting, talk about the perfect place to reflect, appreciate and relax. That's one thing I love about staying in Lower Manhattan, you get to appreciate to New York skyline from a whole new angle.
 Using The Nolitan as a base means you can head West into trendy SoHo and Tribeca, South to Battery Park or North to East Village and Greenwich Village. 

What to do in Lower Manhattan?

  4. Hi Helen
    I used to be a lower Manhattan regular and thought your post was really informative with your choice of suggestions. My 6 year old is desperate to visit NYC and we are saving for a trip there!

  7. That does sound brilliant - and I like how it isn't as touristy because you get a proper feel for a place then.

  9. When we went to NYC 2 years ago we had originally booked to stay in Lower Manhattan but our accommodation was cancelled on us. So we stayed in Astoria and got the subway in. I really enjoyed the World Tease Centre Memorial. A beautiful but somber place.

  28. In a way they are correct. Travel operators in the past were simply somebody who booked a trek for somebody who called or came in to the retail facade office of a travel office. Kerala Tourism
