I did a lot of research before choosing the Distrikt as it was our first time to NYC, and am glad we stayed here. It's just a block away from Time square and the Hells Kitchen precinct - the Distrikt is the place to stay. Clean, friendly helpful staff, attention to detail, location and will no doubt stay there again if ever in NYC.
We were celebrating my husband's 30th and our 1st year wedding anniversary and were given a complimentary room upgrade and a tasty brownie and cheesecake with congratulatory card on arrival - so thoughtful.
Room was always cleaned when we returned from our daily trips and staff at the Distrikt were only too willing to help if we needed directions or tips of places to eat or things to do.
The gym is a 2 minute walk away and you get free entry passes from the hotel. A great night spot if you dont want to walk too far from the hotel is located at the Skybar which is free entry for guests staying at the Distrikt (avoid the $40 entry fee) and is litterally a building away.
There is a heavy Police presence in NYC so felt very safe. Being across the road from the Port Authority was a bonus although we enjoyed beating the feet and exploring the city by foot. Be sure to try out the Pizzeria little Italian restaurant, down the road from the Distrikt cant recall the name but the pizza was the best i had in NYC.
I would highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for clean, conveniently located and good service. Free wifi was a bonus. Overall excellent stay!
