“Great location, newer hotel,clean rooms and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

This is our first stay at the Distrikt. The rooms are a bit small but the rates are good and, after all, this is New York City. This hotel is an easy walk to Times Square and the heart of the theatre district. The cleanliness of the rooms and public spaces is outstanding. We had a minor crises back home to deal with and the staff went out of their way to be helpful with the computers, printers, and fax machine. All in all we couldn't ask for a better experience.

Room Tip: As always in Manhattan, go to the highest floor available to minimize street noise, we were on the 2...

Whenever visiting New York I stay here. The staff is outstanding. The one thing that I love about the rooms is that you can open the window. I was there in November and the weather was cool but not cold. I loved opening the window and getting fresh air. The bar is also my favorite. Wonderful appetizers for Happy Hour. Location can't be beat. I take the bus from Newark airport and arrive right across the street. There is always a refreshing drink in the lobby which is so nice after a long trip or day. Clean, comfortable and unique - stay at the Distrikt next time you are in New York.

Arrived at the Distrikt Hotel 3rd November for four nights,we had a really warm welcome by the friendly staff at reception.It is not a big hotel compared to others which makes it more welcoming. Check in was easy and as we arrived early we did'nt know if our rooms would be ready,but one of them was.Did'nt wait that long for our other room to be ready.There was four of us,one room was on the 12th floor and my room was on the 23rd,with a pretty good view.Rooms are spacious,with a big flat screen tv on wall,nice bathroom and great coffee maker.
As i said before staff were great,but a big shout to Hugo,who made our stay that little bit extra special,he remembered all our names,and every time he was on,would have a chat with us, such a nice man.
Had a great time in New York, and if and when i return, would definitley stay here again.

Room Tip: Try to get a higher floor.

What more can I say about this hotel that hasn't already been said on many of the previous reviews! Hotel was spotlessly clean and rooms were larger than most NYC hotels I have been to in the past.
Every member of staff couldn't do enough to help or assist you, even if you hadn't asked.
3 iMac's in the lobby with free Wi-Fi in your room throughout your stay was very convenient.
Location is wonderful for Times Square, Fifth Avenue etc, all within walking distance.
Some reviews have mentioned the street not being the best but I never felt in danger and there was door staff constantly on patrol and the elevator requires a room key to use so was perfectly safe.
Would recommend this hotel to anyone - you won't be disappointed!

Stayed here with my Husband, daughter and her boyfriend for one week, from 5th - 11th nov.. Great base to explore New York. Rooms are well appointed, massive bed very comfy, very clean. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. Celebrated our daughter's 25th birthday and they gave her a cake and a handwritten card. Plenty of choice at breakfast whether it's continental or cooked, not badly priced. We look forward to visiting sometime next year.

Room Tip: We had a superior king on 15th floor, big enough and surprisingly quiet.

We spent three nights at the Distrikt Hotel at the end of September, I chose the hotel after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. We had a room on the 30th floor and had a wonderful view of the Hudson river. Our room was very clean and quiet and the bed and pillows really comfortable. We had trouble with one of the lamps and almost immediately a member of staff came and repaired it. We had breakfast at the hotel every morning and we were greeted each day by Robert whose friendly face was a good start to the day, the breakfasts were very good. The location of the hotel was excellent and the staff were very helpful in advising us where to go etc. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: A high room is a good idea

Stayed in the Distrikt hotel for 5 night in October 2013. One of the best hotels I've stayed in with friendly staff, clean rooms and excellent service overall.

The location of the hotel was fantastic as it was only a short walk away from Times Square. The staff couldn't be more helpfull in advicing us on transportation costs and where we would be able to buy Broadway tickets (which could also be purchased in reception).

We ate breakfast every morning in the Hotel bistro, once again the staff were very friendly and there was plenty of choices.

I'm considering going back to New York in the next two years and I will definately be booking a room in this hotel.
