I recently stayed at the Distrikt Hotel. It is a wonderful starting point for a visit to NYC. The staff is wonderful and always a smile.
The location is great! Just 2-3 blocks from Time Square. There are a few strip clubs and porn shops near the hotel, but that is part of any big city. I was with my sister and niece. I was fine with them walking past these stores alone.
The rooms are small, but well appointed and very nicely remodeled. The rooms are very clean. The beds were very comfortable, actually one of the best I have slept on.
Iced Tea offered in the lobby was a nice touch.
