I stayed only a night, but I am satisfied with most of what this hotel had to offer. The room was clean and well-updated as well as tastefully decorated. The amenities were also classy. I liked the fact that they offered free Wi-fi as well. If everything seems a bit smaller side, it's according to American standard (where people's sense... More

We stayed at the Distrikt Hotel for our first NYC visit from Dec 1st to Dec 5th last year. Having never been to NYC before, we didn’t have any expectations really. We have friends who have stayed in NYC in other hotels and they had said to not expect the luxury, big spacious rooms like the kind you get in... More

Although the room was extremely small, as other reviewers have noted, this is common in NYC. So for less than $200, a (fairly) centrally located hotel with free in-room wifi to lay your head for the night (only) is considered a bargain (for the same money, you could probably get a suite in some other city, but the trade off...

Thank you for reflecting on your stay with us at Distrikt. We are sorry to hear that certain aspects of your room did not surpass your standards. The beds in our Queen rooms are, in fact, standard Queen beds with typical Queen bed measurements, as used in all hotels. The Queen room type option at Distrikt is, however, our coziest,... More

As the title says, this is the best NYC hotel I have stayed in, by far. It was fantastic. It was spotless, the staff were friendly, the rooms were big for NYC. The location was close to Times Square. I'll never stay anywhere else again in New York.

Spent five nights at the Distrikt Hotel after being recommended it by a friend who had previously stayed. In all, I cannot fault this hotel. The staff were great and made sure to accommodate all of our needs, on top of being super friendly and welcoming. The room was spacious (considering the location) with an excellent bathroom. We booked at... More

Distrikt is a good hotel - good location, good front desk staff, good room (although like a lot of NYC hotel rooms, very small and not a real closet). It was relatively clean and probably because our room faced the back it was quiet. The lobby is very small and had water/hot chocolate (yum) available in the afternoon/evenings and coffee... More

The hotel room was very small, but after much research for NY, I think that is common. The room was all first class for our stay, had everything we needed. Close enough to walk to Times Square, broadway show, and shopping.

Spent two nights at this hotel and everything was good. Check in was quick and the room was very comfortable. They made our trip even more special by surprising us for our anniversary and by responding to our needs everytime we made a call to the front desk. Thank you. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

No queue to check in, no queues ever for the lift, lovely and friendly staff, very convenient location especially if you want to be close to Port Authority or Times Square, rooms big by New York standards, very nice modern decor, powerful shower and easy to work air con.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
