“Great hotel and a wonderful staff.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I spent 4 nights at the Distrikt Hotel, as my daughter was attending an event at Javits Convention Center. The hotel is conveniently located . .a few blocks up from the convention center. It is also near subway stops and the bus station.
The room was small, but clean. The hotel was quiet, the bed really comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful There are computers for public use in the lobby. There is also fresh coffee in the morning and hot chocolate in the afternoon.
What was nice also, is the the hotel by New York standards is small, so there was never a long wait for the elevator or a crowded ride.
Also the wifi in the room was free and fast.

In choosing where to stay for a week in New York we thought we would get stuck with a small, average hotel room. Until we found Distrikt! We had a King Room for our honeymoon, on 22nd floor overlooking the Hudson River. Soooo spacious for a hotel just around from Times Square! Good sized bathroom, Excellent for a week. We were greeted with the best service we had in our whole 5 weeks in the US with really personable and funny reception staff. And when we arrived in our room we had a slice of delicious cheesecake and a handwritten note - congratulations on your honeymoon! It was a pleasant surprise. Staff great in helping us get to the NFL at MetLife stadium, location win as we were right across from Port Authority bus terminal which we used to get to MetLife. Also just far enough away from the insanity of Times Square but so close that you still feel amongst it. Only downside was it was down a quiet street and you have to pass a couple of weird stores and a bar so at night be careful when you turn off the main drag. Also restaurant for brekky seemed understaffed as many dirty tables and took a while for service despite small size. Yes hotel was expensive but the size and quality of the room was immaculate. Got excellent sleep which I put down to two things: proper soundproof glass and only 4 rooms (or so) on a floor so no one being noisy! Have recommended highly to family & friends. Great job Disrikt.

The Distrikt Hotel exceeded expectations. We have stayed in more
expensive hotels in NYC but this one is far superior. The room is
spacious and nicely appointed. Great water pressure & hot temp in the
shower. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is ideal for
great restaurants and the theatre.

I have been an guest of the Distrikt Hotel for almost four years. I have always had exceptional treatment and a wonderful room too!

Ms. Jennifer Rota is the best. So professional, helpful and kind. She is a pro at being the GM of the Distrikt Hotel.

My room (3001) was amazing and the housekeeping was perfect. Loved the appetizers in the restaurant in the evenings.

Her staff is first rate, Peter was superior in his help with several items including check in. Nesha, always great, friendly, Will, a shining star, David, super and kind and Kwame helped me with a cab!

I highly, highly recommend the Distrikt Hotel!!

My expectations were pretty low when I secured a $99 per night rate at this hotel, but, I figured, what the heck. Boy, I’m so glad I open my Travelzoo Weekly Top 20 emails because I would’ve missed out on this great boutique hotel discovery. Of course, $99 room rates are hard to come by during peak periods, but I would’ve been just as pleased spending $250 per night for my stay in room 1505. By NYC standards, the room was perfect for me and my fiancé. The bathroom was clean and spacious. I also really appreciated the “extras” - free WiFi, bedtime snacks, personal welcome letter from management, etc. The king-sized bed was comfortable and the room just large enough for a two or three-night stay. Will, a front desk attendant, was very friendly and attentive. I’m glad I spent my birthday weekend at the Distrikt Hotel.
