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).
