Where to Stay

NYC has many places to stay, but here are a few to consider. Prices are for a single room and can vary according to season and availability, so please call them for details.

Hotel Info Approx. Price/Night Distance from Noble Comments

Holiday Inn Soho

138 Lafayette @ Canal Street
(212) 966-8898 or 1 (800) 972-3160

Click Here to use the Noble Desktop Discount
$159–319 Walking This is the most popular place for our students to stay. It has gotten mixed reviews in the past, but we hear from the hotel that they renovated in 2009. In some rooms you can hear the subway, but if you request “away from the subway,” they’ll take care of you. It's right at the edge of Chinatown, in a somewhat industrial group of blocks, but it's safe and just a few blocks away from Little Italy.

Room in Brooklyn

Brooklyn Heights, Brooklyn
(212) 226-4149
$100 20–30 minute subway We have a past student who rents a room to visiting Noble students. The rate is $100/night, cash only, and is a 20–30 minute subway ride to Noble. Please send us an email if you would like more info:  .


$75 and up Could be anywhere Air BnB is a website that matches apartments/houses with temporary travelers. One of our employees has used it to rent inexpensive apartments in various cities for only a few days at a time. Give it a try and let us know if it works for you.

GEM Hotel Soho

135 E. Houston Street
(212) 358-8844
$125 and up Walking We had a student report favorably on this hotel, just blocks from Noble Desktop, in March 2009. He got the $125/night rate via Expedia, and reports that it was clean and comfortable.

60 Thompson

60 Thompson Street
(212) 431-0400
$380 and up Walking If you can afford it THIS is the place to stay. It has received nothing but excellent reviews, and is a 5 minute walk from Noble Desktop

Washington Square Hotel

103 Waverly Place @ Washington Sq. West
(212) 777-9515
$195 and up Walking The Washington Square gets mixed reviews, but most people seem to like it. Supposedly there has been a lot of renovation so the rooms are nicer. It is certainly in a charming area of the city, right off Washington Square Park.

SoHo Grand

310 West Broadway @ Canal St
(212) 965-3000
$449 Walking The Soho Grand is not only expensive, but very inconsistent. We’ve had some students say it was really nice, and others say the rooms were too small. If you can afford this, try Sixty Thompson instead, see above.

Radisson Martinique

49 West 32nd Street @ Broadway
(212) 736-3800
$229–476 1.99 Miles One of our students tells us it is clean and an easy subway ride to Noble.

Marriott Marquis

1535 Broadway @ 49th Street
(212) 398-1900
$400 2.75 Miles Prime, expensive real estate near Times Square. If you want to be near the glitz, this place is for you. Top-notch quality.

Courtyard Marriott Fifth Avenue

3 East 40th Street @ Fifth Ave
(212) 447-1500
$229 2 Miles  

Carlton Arms

160 East 25th Street @ Third Ave
(212) 679-0680
$70 1.3 Miles If you get wistful when you think of the sixties, and don’t mind sharing a bathroom with strangers, this little ditty is for you. It’s cheap, and about a 5 minute subway ride.
