“Excellent hotel, great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2011

We stayed here for our honeymoon for 10 nights. The staff here are so helpful and friendly, you can certainly see that these people love their jobs here and the city, nothing is to much trouble. We were left some goodies in our room for our arrival congratulating us on our wedding, which was a very nice touch. The facebook page this hotel has is so helpful and gives you lots of information on the city and things to do. The rooms and lovely and clean and I cannot thank the staff enough for making our honeymoon special. Our room had a lovely view (30th floor) of the Hudson River on the right and the Empire State Building on the left, perfect to wake up to on a morning.

Room Tip: Let the hotel know if you are here for a special occasion and they will make it very special

We were very impressed with this little gem of a place!
It is ideally located, close to Times Square and central to all forms of transportation.
The hotel is clean and very modern. Our room was of adequate size and housed all we needed for our short stay.
The staff were excellent - extremely helpful and friendly. We were welcomed warmly by the staff on the front desk and they were available 24/7.
The breakfast buffet was great although we did not eat from the menu we thought the food was good for such a small hotel.
The bar staff were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed an evening testing the cocktails on the menu.
I would certainly stay at this hotel again and wold not hesitate to recommend it to anyone visiting NYC!!

It is the combination of the pleasantness of the staff, the quality of the rooms, and the thoughtful extra's (and the good financial value) that makes the Distrikt so special. That is apart from the brilliant location (wander into nearby Hell's Kitchen for a bewildering assortment of excellent restaurants); the free fast wifi in every room; and (my favourite) the (free) iced tea (two different flavours) in the lobby in the afternoons.

There are three modern iMacs in the lobby (free of course). Memo to staff: the full stop key was not working on the middle one during my stay. I will always stay here when in New York. .

Very nice hotel! The room was spacious, very modern, and spotless clean! The location is very convenient, could not ask for more central location, just 5 minute away from Times Square (but trust me, you sleep like a bird, no noise, no anything), so you didnt have to worry at night for getting a cab to go back to your hotel. I agree that the location (although very central) was not in the best neighborhood, but if you are careful, then there is no need to worry about!
The service was also excellent - we were given an upgrade as we were on our honeymoon, so this was a nice surprise, and the staff was always very attentive, helping us with our bags when we arrived and when we were leaving, helping us with directions, etc.
Totally suggest it to other people as well! Very, very impressed! See the photos of our room on the 23rd floor!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the upper floors, if you get a room with a view, it is F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C-!

OK so the Distrikt is clean, modern, stylish, convenient and good value but it's greatest asset is it's staff. Without exception the staff we encountered were genuinely friendly and helpful. My good opinion of the Distrikt began long before we arrived - I made a real mess of our booking - booked the wrong month and then was unable to rectify it on-line. So I rang the hotel and was rescued by Rachel on the front desk - she sorted out my mistake and booked our rooms AND made me feel better. But what really, really impressed me was that she remembered our conversation when we arrived some two months later.

If you want a well-run, classy hotel with a personal touch, the Distrikt is it. No point going anywhere else!!

A small hotel by NY standards and that's its charm. Only 6 rooms per floor so very quiet and the rooms nicely appointed with fabulous bathrooms and comfy beds. Great location - 5 mins from Times Sq and nice helpful staff.
