Gotta say I loved the Distrikt Hotel. Mostly because I got so much for so little (booked way in advance and got a pretty darn good rate), a really nice room, and staff that were helpful and --sometimes a surprise for NYC-- genuinely kind and caring.

The hotel itself is in a good location in the midst of everything (takes a little walking but what's wrong with a little exercise?). Every floor has its own theme based on an area of NYC, which in itself showcases the hotel's distinct personality; postcards and photos in the room are related to the floor's theme. Very unique touch.

Rooms with a view are extremely classy and gorgeous; thank you SO MUCH to the staff for upgrading us (we posted in advance on their facebook page and mentioned our upcoming stay to celebrate our anniversary)--they even provided a thoughtful treat for us. Just a little touch that made our stay twice as special.

The iced tea available throughout the day, the free in-room wifi (and Macs in the relatively small lobby), and turn-down service with chocolates on the pillow and the next day's weather was great. Didn't try the restaurant but it looked decent and apparently has a relatively cheap prix-fixe menu.

If you can find it for a decent price, GRAB IT. Very nice place to stay. Couldn't ask for more.

My family spent 4 nights at the Distrikt Hotel. I was expecting the room to be small since this is Manhattan. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find it quite spacious. The beds were the most comfortable I ever slept in. We received brownies on our first night and chocolates every night. The ice tea (Raspberry, Mango, Blueberry) in the lobby was always a refreshing treat after a long day of exploring the city. I really liked the make up mirror attached to the bathroom wall. The staff is very friendly. The employee that worked a double shift since 3 pm yesterday was still very curtious when we checked out this morning. I even bought a robe for $85.00 to take home as a souviner of our pleasant stay.

My daughter and I stayed at the Distrikt for three nights and had nothing but pleasant experiences. Our room looked out over a small space between it and the neighboring building, which meant that we heard ZERO noise from outside (a first for me in NYC). And despite being right next door to the elevators, we never heard them either. The room was larger than I expected (though not to be confused with a suite) with a clean, attractive bathroom. The best part of our stay was without question the amazingly friendly, helpful staff at the front desk. We were always greeted with a smile, and the staff were always willing to help whenever we had a question. The weather was hot while we were there, so the complimetary cold teas on offer in the lobby really hit the spot upon coming back home. The location is perfect, just half a block from the ACE subway line and a short walk to the heart of Times Square. There are tons of restaurants nearby on 9th Avenue.

In short, we were delighted with the Distrikt from A to Z and recommend it wholeheartedly.

We stayed at the Distrikt from July 1-6, 2012. We were accompanied by about 12 close friends and family members for our wedding, about half of whom stayed at the Distrikt. Our flight was greatly delayed arriving into NYC; however, when we arrived at nearly 2 a.m. the front desk knew our names and greeted us warmly. There were even welcome pastries in our room.

The Distrikt is conveniently located near the Theatre Distrikt and Times Square. There are more attractive streets in the area, and the proximity to the Port Authority meant some 'interesting' characters about, especially late at night. However, the modern rooms, friendly staff and competitive pricing more than compensate for this.

Our room had a great view toward the Hudson River and was kept clean throughout our stay. We appreciated the late-afternoon turn-down service (which includes a chocolate and card with the weather forecast for the following day). Breakfast (or cocktails for that matter) are available in the small restaurant on the main floor.

Overall, a great stay. We would highly recommend the Distrikt Hotel.

We stayed here for 5 nights in July. The location was ideal - about a 5 minute walk from Times Square so close enough to walk to but quiet enough to be able to sleep.

It's a great area to stay in as from Times Square you can easily get anywhere on the subway.

The rooms were spacious and modern and the bed was really comfortable.

Check in was quick and easy and the staff were really friendly. Every day they left us a weather forecast which helped us make plans for the next day.

I'd definitely recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in New York - they deserve their high ranking on Trip Advisor!

Room Tip: Go for a room higher up if you can!
