“Perfect location, friendly staff, and immaculate rooms...what more do you need?!”
Reviewed December 4, 2012

Stayed in a Grand View double room mid November travelling with my mum and brother for my mums 50th Birthday. The hotel staff were welcoming and friendly without being overpowering, and very approachable. Hotel was immaculately clean, rooms were made over and toiletries replaced daily and the hotel provided free coffee and hot apple cider which was a nice extra touch. Very close to Time Square, our room was looking out over Port Authority so there was traffic noise throughout the night, but after all we were in the city that never sleeps so it was expected by all of us! Location was perfect especially for those tired feet when stumbling back after a busy day exploring! The hotel Porter was also very helpful, offered to store our bags upon departure, labelled them up and arranged us a transfer back to the airport all in a matter of seconds! We returned to the hotel later on, our bags were brought to us and the taxi was outside waiting!

The only down I can possibly try and think of is that I did expect the room to be slightly larger given the premium we paid for a'grand view bigger room' (we did this deliberately as we knew 3 adults would be a squash!) but then again for a New York Hotel the room size was reasonable (I've stayed in much smaller!)

All in all a fantastic hotel which comes highly recommended and I would definitely stay here again.

The Distrikt hotel certainly made our time in New York far more enjoyable. The room (22nd floor) was very warm and comfortable and we had a great view of the Hudson. However the staff at the Distrikt have to commended for their services. Always polite, smiling and friendly, nothing was too much trouble. If you wanted to know where to eat, they had the right answer. I've stayed in many a 5 star hotel and customer service doesn't get any better than this. Great work you guys!

Stayed at this hotel for 4 nights mid November and was not disappointed. Room was clean, good size all we could ask for. What makes this hotel special are the staff, everyone we meet from Housekeeping to Reception were friendly, helpful and genuinly interested in our experiance in New York. Also must mention the free hot Cider served at Reception every afternoon, just what was needed after spending all day out in the New York chill. Thank you all for a wounderful stay also thanks for my birthday treat. Hope to visit again soon and will definately return to th Distrikt.

Stayed at Distrikt Hotel due to the prior good reviews on this website. It was our first time to New York and we found that the hotel was so close by to everything. The staff at the hotel are very friendly and very helpful. Our stay at the hotel was very comfortable and would definitely stay at Distrikt again if I ever get to come back to New York. The rooms were an average size but very clean and modern.

The hotel is right around the corner from Hell's Kitchen where we found heaps of good restaurants. I highly recommend staying at this hotel.

There were three criteria we wanted to meet when booking our New York Hotel – location, cleanliness and budget; Distrikt Hotel more than surpassed our requirements. We had booked the Distrikt Hotel after reading the Trip Advisor reviews and it was every bit as good as we could have hoped for.

The hotel is on 40th street – really close to Time Square and within walking distance of major attractions like the Empire State Building and the Rockefeller Centre. We didn’t even use the subway whilst we were there – partly because we enjoy walking but admittedly partly because they were shut down through most of our stay due to Hurricane Sandy.

The décor of the hotel is modern and themed on the different ‘districts’ of New York. The engraved, dark wood across the walls is beautiful and adds to the feeling of a luxury hotel.

We booked a King Superior room and it suited our needs perfectly. The bed was incredibly comfortable (which is just what you need after a long day of sightseeing!). The bathroom was modern and well-sized with a lovely range of toiletries. There was also a good coffee machine, a large television with a selection of channels and an air conditioning/heating system that you could easily change to suit your own preference. The rooms were cleaned every single day – even during the storm! Indeed the entire hotel was kept immaculate.

We had one breakfast meal and one evening meal at the hotel. The food was fine – the breakfast buffet had a lot of choice and the evening meals were tasty. The menu options would appeal to most people and if you need a quick bite to eat then the food is well priced for the portion sizes.

So far in my review, the hotel seems like a lovely place that would appeal to most people. However, what really made it stand out for us were the staff and the little extras which, after speaking to other people, you don’t tend to experience in other New York hotels. For example:

• A free New York Times is delivered straight to your room every day
• They offer free wifi and free use of internet in the lobby
• Two little cakes were delivered to the room to celebrate my birthday

All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful – even before we arrived they responded to our email queries quickly and there is even a live chat option on their website!

More importantly, we felt that the staff at the Distrikt Hotel were fantastic during Hurricane Sandy. The free internet access was a godsend during this time but the hotel staff made everything as smooth as it could possibly have been. Due to the storm, had to stay an extra two nights and they charged us the lower rate to stay in the king size room which obviously made things much more convenient and relaxed. We know that several of the staff had to stay at the hotel for days at a time and had worries of their own but they went out of their way to be as helpful as possible. Distrikt Hotel really do put its customers first and the service we received during what was a very stressful and worrying situation proves that this is a top class hotel.

I could not recommend this hotel more – I would definitely stay here again and I have already recommended it to my friends and family.

This was my third time in NYC and first time in the Distrikt hotel. I stayed here for 6 nights and I have to say that there was absolutely nothing negative I could say about this place. It is exactly what you want from a boutique hotel in the middle of the city!

Firstly the location is superb and everything is within easy walking distance (Times Square, Bryant Park, Rockefeller Centre, Fifth Ave, Empire State Building, as well as Bars, Restaurants, Subway Stations, and taxis).

Then I have to mention the staff at the hotel, they could not be more helpful and friendly - this is particularly unusual for New York City!!! They were always on hand to recommend places to go, places to eat, things to try and things to avoid!

They made an effort to ask about our day, our plans for the evening, and day and simply greet us every time we walked through!

The rooms are a nice size, clean and comfortable. We requested a high floor (room 2603 - 26th floor) and had an awesome view of the Empire State Building! I was also surprised by how quiet the room was given some of the more negative comments on here. The only negative was the lack of bath in the room but then again this isn't something I was expecting, just something I missed after days of endless walking! :-}

The little extras like the morning coffee bar and evening warm apple Cider, the weather cards and chocolates on our bed in the evenings as they turned down the sheets, the umbrellas they provide when it rains, the dressing robes and complimentary toiletries in the room, and the effort the staff made to ensure we were content made everything more special.

I would not hesitate to come back and/or recommend this place to friends and family. It truly was a fantastic trip, made even more perfect by this choice of hotel!!!

Do not be put off by any of the negative reviews on here, focus on the positive reviews as they are all pretty much on point!! This place is truly brilliant and we have had such a wicked time in New York!!

If any of the staff read this, I thank you for this and wish you a Happy Holiday!! :-)

Having read the previous reviews we had high expectations of the Distrikt and I'm pleased to say that they delivered on every level. Great sized room with all of the boutique hotel trimmings from coffee maker, birthday cake (!), top quality complimentary toiletries and bath robes. Every detail taken care to down to the bed being turned down complete with chocolate and weather forecast for the next day. Above all really welcoming, knowledgeable and helpful staff made our experience, as first time visitors to NYC, one to remember. Highly recommended.
