I suppose small hotel rooms are the norm in NYC, but these rooms are definitely very small. I was very spoiled during my first two stays in the city because I was able to book a 5-star hotel at amazing rates. For our third stay, we couldn't find the same deal so we opted for The Distrikt instead. The styling and comfort of the hotel was great, but we did not like the location. Despite reading reviews warning of the location, we thought it wouldn't be such a big deal. Unfortunately every night walking back to the hotel meant walking directly in front of the Parole Office a few buildings down. I'm all for giving people second chances, but I was slightly uncomfortable everytime I walked by, especially at night, since there was always a group of men standing around outside who stared at those walking by. If the Distrikt was in a different location, I would stay again. On a positive note, they did send up a birthday card and a dessert on my birthday. The staff was extremely nice and very helpful.
