“Great stay in the hub of NYC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2012

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!

Don't even know where to begin.... we stayed here for four nights in mid October, just before the storm. Staff on reception are so friendly and the rooms are just gorgeous. So spacious comparable to New York standards. We stayed in a deluxe suite with a lovely view of NY. Rooms are really stylish and trendy with a huge shower and lovely quality shampoo/wash etc. A nice touch when we arrived, two chocolate brownies with a note from the staff and chocolates with a weather report on our pillows every night. Breakfast is really nice in a trendy little restaurant with plenty to choose from. One of the evenings we had a truck parked outside with complimentary dumplings for the guests of Distrikt, the same night there were flavoured vodka/ice shots which were again complimentary to the guests and certainly no limit or restrictions.. where would you get it??!!!! I cannot stress enough how friendly the staff were.. we purchased some camera equipment and were completely ripped off in a local camera shop, the staff were on hand to give us some advice on how to deal with the issue. The hotel is just a few minutes from Times Square and having read some comments on here about the street location, we had no problems whatsoever and were quite comfortable walking around at night and coming in and out of the hotel at all different hours. I was on Trip Advisor for weeks before I booked our trip, really struggled to find somewhere that ticked all the boxes.... but tell you what, look no further, THIS IS THE ONE! without doubt we will be back! Thanks to all for making this a trip of a lifetime for myself and my husband!

Room Tip: Pay extra for the deluxe suite, also if you have a chat with the staff on facebook, they will look a...

My fiance and I spent the weekend at the Distrikt Hotel. Our room was small but extremely comfortable, modern and clean. The location is fantastic as well. The rooms are not entirely soundproof (you can hear some noise from the room next door) but we put the fan on and it was loud enough to block everything out. Overall, we had a great stay and we will definitely be returning.

We stayed here for 5 nights - in the quietest room we have ever had in New York. Our room was relatively spacious with a huge, extremely comfortable bed, the room well fitted out, clean and tidy. A bath would have been perfect for a soak after all the miles we walked. The downside is the location which is truly awful - with life at its grittiest all around. Apart from that its a great nights sleep.

Thank you for sharing your experience with us. We're very glad to hear that you enjoyed your comfortable room and bed, and that it provided you with "a great nights sleep." We are sorry to hear that you had a negative experience with the location. Our immediate street and area has improved drastically in recent years due to the revitalization of Port Authority, planting of more trees, and so forth. At the least we hope you enjoyed our central and convenient location, just minutes to main attractions such as Times Square and the Theater District. Thank you again and we hope to be able to welcome you again in the near future!

amazing staff, amazing location. Just a few blocks away from Macy's on 34th street and again a few blocks away from Times Square, this small hotel truly deserves its rating on Tripadvisor. We could not find fault with the hotel, the staff were exceptional, so friendly and the hotel truly delivers a very personal service. The food in the hotel restaurant is great value and the breakfast selection was great. I would definitely recommend a stay here and will stay again. Enjoy!

Room Tip: ask for a higher floor for views of hudson river.

I'm still here! 4 night trip to New York, first time in this wonderful city. So many hotels to choose from, used trip advisor to help us decide, fab choice!
This hotel is small, 33 floors with just 5 rooms per floor I believe, new and just perfect. Brilliant location, 2 min walk from Times Square. Not too expensive. The staff are fantastic, always a cheery welcome back after you have been out for the day. Fresh coffee in the lobby in the morning and lovely hot apple cider in the evening (all free) , free wifi, and this place is so very clean. The beds and linen are like sleeping on clouds, never have I had such wonderful beds. Rooms are a good size,modern and very comfortable. being a small hotel means your room is made up early in the day ( we stayed at the Belagio in Vegas earlier this year,it was huge obviously, but that meant sometimes the maid had not got to your room even by 5pm, this is so much better)
Rooms have tea/coffee maker, hair dryer (proper one not those silly bathroom ones) iron and board and a decent room safe, ( a good tv too).
Something I've not seen before and a typical little extra from the staff here, each evening someone comes around with a weather forecast card for the next day, brilliant idea)
My husband and I are loving it here, I'm going to get details for my sons to come stay here too.
Quite simply, why go anywhere else? It's is a little gem!

Room Tip: We chose a city view double room, to be honest the view isn't that great so I can't imagine...

Just spent 7 nights at the Distrikt in the grandview room on the 20th floor! Staff very helpful, nice touches with the robes in the room, hot coffee and hot apple cider in the lobby in the afternoon. Would book here again on the next trip back to the city that never sleeps!
