Profile

A franchise of the boutique Clarion Collection brand, the Solita feels a little like a Best Western trying to do Soho. With eighties-brown office carpeting, wood paneling, and standard-issue hotel art above the beds, it could almost belong to a chain anywhere in the country, with the only real differences being the occasional attempts at some style: blue strip lighting, metal plating around the front door, and a stainless-steel desk in the lobby (which itself is little more than a vestibule at the entrance). A narrow brick building wedged between an apartment complex and a restaurant, the Solita houses 42 cramped rooms on 12 stories; the doubles feel especially small, with two beds squeezed into the same 196-square-foot space as rooms with single queens. But if location is the main priority, few hotels can boast comparable proximity to famous boutiques, art galleries, and nightlife. And while the black-and-white hallway photographs of classic New York street scenes try to give visitors a sense of place, the upper-floor views of the old Baroque police headquarters on Centre Street are far more successful.

Pros

The rooms are tidy, with a coffeemaker, bathrobe, and basic appliances—good for travelers who just want a comfortable room to sleep in. And while there’s no gym, guests get half-off passes to nearby Five Points Fitness.

Cons
The ambience is in a bit of an identity crisis: The modern blue lighting in the lobby gives off a clubby vibe, while the no-frills rooms could match the décor of a Clarion in Iowa.
