Thanks again Trip Advisor for helping me find the perfect hotel to stay in New York City. The Distrikt Hotel is a wonderful place to stay just a few blocks away from all the excitement of Times Square, Broadway Theatre District and Hells Kitchen. We had a lovely quiet room on the 30th floor. Our view was interesting-front view of a building and to our right was the Hudson River and to our left was the Empire State Building. We felt we were quite lucky that our requests when reserving were accommodated when we asked for a quiet, high floor room with a view of the Empire State Building and the Hudson River.
We enjoyed our room with the modern decor, comfy king bed, clean bathroom with a very useful long sink counter. We really appreciated the little extra perks that the Distrikt Hotel gives. It was so refreshing to pick up a complimentary iced peach tea in the lobby after coming in from the heat outside. It was also a nice touch and very helpful to have waiting in our room in the evening the weather report card for the next day with chocolates on the pillow. The staff was very nice and friendly. They were always very helpful with directions, recommendations for restaurants and helping us with the use of the lobby computers.
The Collage Bistro Restaurant in the Distrikt Hotel came in quite handy for having an early morning Breakfast. We were disappointed though one evening after being out the whole day we decided to make it back to the hotel for the Happy Hour special on Sunday at the Collage Bistro. We had noticed on the menu displayed in the room that the Collage Bistro has on Sundays the choice of any of the Happy Hour specials from Monday to Saturday. We thought we would try the 2 for 1 appetizers and have a cocktail special. We found out from the waitress that we misunderstood the Sunday Happy Hour specials. We were only allowed one choice per bill and they were also out of the chicken wings since Saturday. We ended up enjoying our evening with the recommendations from the front desk giving us choices of many restaurants in Hells Kitchen area.
We went to the Bourbon Street Restaurant on 46th St. (between 8th & 9th Ave,) and thoroughly enjoyed our Jambalaya and $5.00 Hurricane cocktail. It is a great New Orleans restaurant, nicely decorated and reasonably priced. For a fast snack just down the street from the Distrikt Hotel corner of 9th Ave. is pizza for a dollar. Try the cheese only pizza, it is surprisingly tasty. If planning to go to the Statue of Liberty take note on the WEEKENDS the Subway Red Line 1 Downtown to South Ferry (end of line) does not go all the way to the end of the line. You have to change trains across track and get off at Christopher Station. Then go outside and catch the special free shuttle to take you to Battery Park. Then ask directions to walk to the Statue of Liberty Ferry. (note: it is not the building directly in front of getting off the shuttle) A lot of people are not informed of this and it does end up being very time consuming. We went on June 30th left the hotel at 11:15 am and only arrived at the Statue of Liberty at 2:00 pm. There are also line ups at the ferry dock and after buying our ticket we had to wait an hour in line to board the ferry.
I would highly recomment the Distrikt Hotel to anyone that is looking for a centrally located, clean, modern and reasonably priced hotel. If I plan to make another visit to New York City I would choose the Distrikt Hotel as the accommodations and staff made our trip to New York City all the more enjoyable.
