Reviewed June 27, 2012

Stayed here for one night while in NYC on business and for a wee bit of R&R. They treated us right, with not the least bit of pretension, even on a discounted rate, and put us on the 31st floor with a view of the Empire State Building and a partial view of the Hudson. Rooms are small, and somewhat basic but tidy and clean with good beds and decent sized bathrooms with shower and quality toiletries. Generally the place has minimalist but tasteful and fun decor. There are 3 Apple computers in the lobby for guests to use and free wifi in the rooms. There are only 4-5 rooms on each floor. Didn't try the restaurant/bar but there is so much to try on 9th Avenue from pizza to ethnic food, don't miss that! If you're headed to the Theatre District and Times Square both are a short walk. We walked here from NY Penn Station after arriving on Amtrak. Definitely check out the Distrikt hotel, it deserves the great reviews its getting here.

Room Tip: Ask for a high floor.

In town to see a ballet and Zarkana for the weekend and picked this hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews, once again TA did not steer me wrong. This is a great little boutique hotel very near Times Square and the Theatre district, half a block from a metro stop for the ABC lines, and a block from countless restaurants and bars in the Hells Kitchen district. You can get here direct from the airport via the AirTrain and Line A or Line E for $7.25. The rooms are small but pretty and comfortable and extremely well maintained. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful, the best I've encountered in Manhattan hotels. Free wireless throughout and there are 3 new Mac computers for use by guests in the lobby to look up things to do or print boarding passes. It's not the most savory view out the front door (directly across from the port authority) but the location otherwise is really quite excellent. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Distrikt for 10 days in May, and yes - it does deserve all the fabulous reviews it gets. Everything about this hotel was flawless - the room (on the 27 floor) was large, and had an amazing view of the city. It was super clean, very nicely decorated and smelled great. The bathroom was well equipped and the shower was a real pamper (very large sized!).
The coffee machine was a great addition which we used a lot. The little details added to our joy - morning newspaper, chocolate every evening, weather card.
And the front desk and management - a dream team. Salutes to the hotel owners/management for picking such service-oriented, friendly, professional and welcoming staff.
I've stayed in many hotels in NY, and the Distrikt has been the best. We'll be back!

We were in town to see "Potted Potter", and do some sightseeing at the Intrepid, and the Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island. The hotel was in the perfect spot for all three! It was easy to find, had a parking garage right next door (Peach parking), and was around the corner from the Little Shubert theater, a close walk to the Intrepid, and on the same block to the subway for the Statue of Liberty.

We arrived very early and they checked our luggage so that we could go off and sight-see. When we got back, we found the room was clean and comfortable, a comfy bed and top-notch air conditioning. Not much view from the 9th floor and the hotel bar (the Collage) was pricey (but the "Tribeca" was worth it.) The room had all the typical amenities: wifi, hairdryer, iron, etc... What really stood out about the Distrikt was how unbelievably friendly EVERYONE was, from the guys who helped with our luggage to the wonderful cleaning lady who joked with us about the crowded elevator as she stepped aside to let us take it over :) Everyone was welcoming, had suggestions for things to do and places to eat, and what really struck was just how much everyone seemed to enjoy their jobs.

The lobby had two computers with free internet, the room had free Wifi, and the free iced-tea and coffee in the lobby were great touches. The next time we are in NYC, we plan to stay at the Distrikt!

Just back from New York two days ago and having withdrawal symptoms! Its was an amazing holiday. We stayed at the Distrikt Hotel which was fantastic. The hotel is near to Times Square but far enough away from the bright lights and noise. On entry the hotel is clean and welcoming (and smelt amazing!), the rooms are lovely and not at all small, they are very clean and comfortable with air conditioning. Our rooms were cleaned every day and towels and bedding changed every second day. The toiletries provided were fantastic and smelt amazing. The New York Times is delivered to your room daily. I was on the 29th floor and had a view of the Lincoln tunnel and the Empire State Building. The staff are fantastic, they are all very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble, in fact they would go out of their way to help you with any enquiry from subways to Broadway shows. I want to mention a few of the lovely staff because they deserve recognition for the hard work that they do - Kayte, thanks for all your help and advice on New York - your a star! Will, for your all your good advice and compliments! Peter "the great" - what can I say, the name says it all - he's a great guy too!! Kenneth, thank you - you are a true gentlemen and very helpful. And finally to all the other staff members - too many to mention - the world deserves more friendly and helpful people like yourselves. Thank you for making our first trip to New York a truly wonderful experience and can't wait to stay at the Distikt again.

We chose the Distrikt Hotel after many many months of searching for the perfect start to our honeymoon. We have not stayed at a better venue!
The staff were fantastic! So friendly and they couldnt be more helpful.
The room it self was perfect. spacious, clean, modern. everything you could ask for.To the personalised letter and treats to greet us on our arrival, to the temperature/weather report and daily chocolates, you couldnt ask for more.
The location was perfect as you are right in amongst and near all local attractions, yet you are nor smack bang in times square. Also location to subway/transport is ideal as you are across the road from the port authority bus terminal were most tour buses leave from. You are also in location to some great restauraunts.
The staff at the Distriky hotel really made my husband and i have a fantastic start to our honeymoon, they should be commended!
I really couldnt reccomend this hotel more!! you can not go wrong staying at The Distrikt Hotel!

We chose the Distrikt Hotel for our annual stay in NYC this year. We have stayed in some of the most "famous" hotels in the Theater District. We will be returning to the Distrikt. We had some initial concerns when our cab driver told us that in his 28 years of driving a taxi in New York he had never dropped a customer at the Distrikt before. Our concerns were quickly alleviated when we were greeted by the Front Desk staff. In fact, the level of hospitality of all the Distrikt staff was beyond compare. Our room on the 32nd floor was actually roomy. We enjoyed the turn down service, complete with dark chocolates, and the weather report for the next day. We found it conveniently located to the subways. OK...there is the Parole office and the adult book stores, but they were not a problem. Don't let that keep you from enjoying the amenities of the Distrikt. We walked around at all hours with no concerns for our safety. Take a walk down 9th Avenue to find some terrific "local" shops for breakfast or lunch or dinner (they're all open 24 hours). Or try Dean and Deluca at 8th Avenue and 40th Street for some gourmet sandwiches. And go to John's Pizza on 44th Street between 7th Avenue and 8th Avenue. And we cannot end this review without commenting on the way the Distrikt staff treats it's Facebook friends. Unbelievably good! Two thumbs up.
