“Great experience - highly recommend”
Reviewed February 28, 2012

After my bad experience at the Millenium Broadway around New Years (also reviewed) I was able to scramble and find a room online at Distrikt. Note that my cab driver didn't know exactly where the hotel was, so I had to tell him that it was on 40th between 8th and 9th. Upon check-in I found a completely different experience; the folks at the front desk were friendly and chatty, there was hot cider for guests and the small lobby area felt bright and welcoming. The room was smallish, but well designed with a modern decor, and more importantly it was spotless.

I can whole-heartedly recommend this hotel as a clean, comfortable and safe place to stay. As noted by many, the location is not in the heart of Times Square, but its still convenient and I was able to walk to a game at Madison Square Garden. We did walk as well to the Gershwin Theater to see Wicked, but it's a bit of a hike so we took a taxi back home (also it was freezing during that time).

We stayed here for 2 nights as the start of our honeymoon. It was my second visit to New York so I knew that most hotels are small. This place offered a pleasant surprise. The hotel was modern and stylish with a decent sized room and bathroom. In terms of the room and facilities I can have no complaints at all.

The staff were also friendly and helpful. Anything that we needed they were more than happy to help with.

I would recommend this hotel whole heartedly and would happily stay here next time I'm going to New York.

We really like this hotel. The staff here is really friendly and helpful. We ordered room service this morning(classic breakfast on the menu) and it was delicious. They kept a bottle of champagne, that we purchased at the liquor store down the street, cold for us over night and delivered it in the morning with our breakfast. I thought that was really nice of them considering they have a full service bar in their restaurant that is located in the lobby.
The rooms are the perfect size and very clean. When we booked the room we told them we preferred a higher floor and that's exactly what they gave us. The location is perfect, with everything at your reach.
If you want a nice boutique hotel with friendly staff, clean rooms, and good location....look no further.
We will definitely come back!
Don't forget to tip the house keepers, they leave us chocolates on the pillows, it's only right that we leave them bills on the pillow too! :)

Thank you very much for taking your time to write your review. We're glad you enjoyed your stayed thoroughly! Our Collage Restaurant & Bistro serves breakfast and dinner with a full bar daily, including room service as you mentioned. We're glad to hear our attentive staff was able to assist you in making your trip enjoyable; our complimentary chocolates and weather cards at every turndown service is a quite popular aspect, along with many other complimentary amenities. Being just two years old, our building and rooms are extremely tidy, comfortable, and modern. Having only five rooms per floor also provides for a very quiet and private stay. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you for your next stay in the Big Apple! Take care!

Let´s go Distrikt!! Thanks so much! We had a super time in NYC, the best city in the world! "Home" was the Distrikt Hotel and the staff did make us feel very much at home. Great rooms, VERY friendly staff - who gave us so much information on the city and help when needed. We were a group of friends (10) nearly all of us staying at the Distrikt. Rooms have a fantastic view (of course that depends on the floor) The Hotel and the rooms are very clean, the location of the Hotel is just perfect. Walking distance to a lot of places. We also loved that warm Apple Cider which you can get in the lobby free of charge. We also liked the breakfast and enjoyed a drink with friends at the bar. All in all a great, small Hotel which makes you feel right at home whilst visiting the BIG APPLE.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms that have a fantastic view of Empire State: 30th, 31st and 32nd floor!!!

This hotel is just a few minutes walk from Times Square, and yet the rooms are so quiet you can hear a pin drop! The staff were extremely courteous and friendly. I also loved the extra little touches that made me think I was staying in a luxury hotel, but paying less than half what a luxury hotel would charge. The next time I visit New York, this is where I'm staying!

Room Tip: My room faced the back. No view, but it was so quiet.

Thank you for staying with us at Distrikt Hotel! We are very conveniently located just minutes away from Times Square and all major train lines, however on a quiet street that provides comfort upon returning after your long day of exploring the Big Apple. We also only have five rooms per floor, which provides absolute privacy and quiet. We are very glad to hear you were able to get to know our attentive staff, and you were able to take advantage of our many fantastic amenities. Thank you again and we look forward to welcoming you again for your next trip to New York City.

My wife and I spent 2 nights here on the 26th floor and had a great view where we were able to see the Empire State Building. Upon check in, the you lady who checked us in was friendly and sweet. We then went on to see the show Stomp! and had a blast and came back to different faces who were equally as friendly as earlier in the day. We spent time walking around Manhattan and seeing the sites and enjoying the foods recommended by the staff and then came back to see the Lion King that night. We were running a little late, so the hotel grabbed us a cab so we could make the show on time, which was a huge help.

As an assistant manager of another Ascend Collection property in the outskirts of Philly, I can see why this property won the Gold Award for this year. The little things the staff did, paying attention to detail, remembering little things about my wife and I and our need for a little "Us" time away from the kids was awesome. The staff at this hotel are top notch and it is well managed and maintained to exceed any industry standards.

This is a great place to stay if you are looking to be centrally located to everything that NYC has to offer...just a few blocks from Times Square and 2 blocks from the Subway, it was easy to get around and see as much as we could see in 3 days and 2 nights....only wish we could have stayed longer!! Kudos to not only this hotel, but the staff is definately top notch...may be one of the best staffs I have encountered in a long time.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor to get a view of the city.
