“Gem in central NY”
Reviewed September 9, 2013 via mobile

Very nice and central hotel with friendly and very helpsome staff 2 blocks away from Times Square. What more do I need to say? And as we were on our honeymoon, they even gave us the room at the very last floor and made us find a little cake in the room when we arrived. Excellent service lies in the small things. Great, just great!

Just got back from a fantastic break in NY.

The service from this hotel started before we even arrived. Through our correspondence on twitter they found out my trip was for my birthday and upgraded our room.
Also they gave us a recommendation for airport transportation into the city.

Upon arrival we were greeted with big smiles. We were a little early but were given out room card straight away. Along with some great tips about what was nearby and a map.

Our room was fabulous, great views from the 19th floor! Also the room was immaculate and you always get a turn down, chocolates and a weather forecast on your bed for the next day. The bed was mega comfortable, just what you need after a long day exploring the city. A few people have mentioned the rooms were small, I have to disagree ! We had a plenty of space.

A few people have spoken about the area the hotel is in. Although the probation office is down the street myself and my mum never felt unsafe. I suggest if you do and you are coming back late alone, you grab one of the many taxis ! The great thing is you are close to everything a short walk to Times Square, Hell's Kitchen and the subway.

I also received a lovely cake in celebration of my birthday which was a lovely touch.

I would definitely stay here again - well done on a brilliant hotel Distrikt staff!

It can be a lottery sometimes choosing a good hotel but we were very pleased with this one. The staff were friendly and helpful. Most importantly it was very clean throughout and our room was very well looked after. Beds were comfortable, a decent room size with air conditioning (much needed) and free wifi (son liked this one) and the water was always as hot as you could want.
Super location close to Broadway and Times Square, Port Authority bus station and subways. We did not dine in the hotel as there were so many places to visit and experience including the Beer Authority an Irish Pub at the end of the street which had a bar on the roof
Not a great view from the window but this was immaterial

Having read all the glowing recommendations on TripAdvisor, we had high expectations and we weren't disappointed. We booked directly and received a nice discount for paying in advance. We also arranged a transfer from JFK via email. Simon and Neisha were very helpful in making all the arrangements.

On arrival, we were greeted as friends. Our room on the upper level overlooked the Port Authority with views to the Hudson River. The room was immaculately clean and all the furnishings and fittings were well maintained and didn't show any signs of wear. After long days walking around the city, the bed felt like a cloud! Even though the hotel is in a busy area and close to the Port Authority there was very little noise. I loved watching the buses leave in the morning!

We had breakfast in the restaurant on our first morning, great service and the food was good too. We were so busy after that we never made it back! The location is great if you want to walk around and see the sights in that part of the city, it's an easy walk to Times Square. Heaps of small diners and corner shops nearby. There's also a coin laundry two streets away. I read a few reviews where people mentioned the remand centre and adult shop but we walked up and down at all hours and never had a problem or felt unsafe. Being so close to the subway was a bonus too.

All up, we had great stay made perfect by the smiling and helpful staff. Whether it was getting directions, dinner recommendations, a map or booking a car, nothing was too much trouble. It was quite hot the week we stayed and we appreciated the cold fruit infused waters from the dispensers in the lobby. Little things make a big difference. Distrikt is full of little things that make it stand out - and a place we'd love to return to!

We stayed at the Dustrikt for 3 nights. Our room was very clean and nice in the Soho part of the hotel. The rooms are not that big but okay for NYC.
The staff and service is excellent! The hotel is very close to the Port Authority bus terminal. So good place to go too the Woodburry Outlets or to reach the subway. For visiting a musical the location is perfect, On the other side the 40th Ave is a little shabby with a strange liquore store and an erotic shop next to the hotel.
All in all it was a good stay!

We stayed here on our honeymoon in July. We were given a complimentary cheesecake which was delicious! Didn't try the restaurant as we were a stones throw from Times Square. Our room didn't have much of a view but it was well equipped with air conditioning (which was definitely needed!) and comfortable bed and luxury bathroom. Would stay here again - staff friendly and willing to offer recommendations for places to eat/visit etc. free wifi also fantastic! Thanks to all involved with our stay.
