To make like a Nolitan, check in to this boutique hotel. The airy rooms feature floor-to-ceiling windows, custom-made walnut beds, wooden floors and toiletries from Prince Street spa Red Flower. The emphasis on keeping it local is reflected in numerous guest perks: The luxuriously laid-back property lends out bikes and skateboards and lays on free local calls, access to an upscale Equinox gym and discounts at neighborhood boutiques. The lobby's ceiling-height bookshelf is stocked with tomes from nearby Phaidon Books. Admire views of Nolita and beyond from the 2,400-square-foot roof deck, complete with fire pit, or your private perch—more than half the guest quarters have balconies. Standard checkout is 2pm, so you can enjoy a leisurely last morning. Rooms: 55.
