Literally back today from our honeymoon in New York & I just wanted to share our thoughts on The Distrikt Hotel.We chose it based on the reviews we had read here & all I can say is I can't understand why the approval rating isn't 100%! From the moment we got there to our departure yesterday it was clear the staff couldn't do enough for us.Having read how friendly they are comes no where close to reality.We were always greeted with a 'good morning' no matter how busy the staff were & there is a genuine feeling that everyone enjoys working there which in turn creates the perfect atmosphere for the guests.Having been told it was our honeymoon we came back to our room on our first night there & had a delicious cake delivered along with a letter congratulating us.Speaking of the room we went for the Grandview Kings room which certainly did what it said on the tin.We were given the room at the top of the hotel with a fantastic view of the city including the River Hudson.The room itself was spacious with a great TV & the most comfortable bed we have ever had.As has been mentioned before the idea of using the key card to operate the lift is an inspired one as is the idea of supplying ice cold drinks in the foyer which were much needed in the freakishly hot September weather we encountered.We tried the various & varied breakfasts a few mornings & they were great value & once again the staff serving us were keeping with the rest of the hotel.So were there any negatives? Well as has been mentioned in numerous reviews the area away from the hotel could be construed as being less than desirable but strangely at no point did we feel threatened so if you are thinking of staying at the Distrikt Hotel please don't let that put you off as the pros far weigh out the cons.One of those pros is the how close the hotel is to most things whether it is by foot, Times Square is about 10 minute walk, but the Subway is literally at the top of the street & the big bonus is having the Port Authority Bus Station literally across the road which is perfect for getting to Woodbury Common Outlet! So as you can see we can't recommend The Distrikt Hotel enough.If you are thinking of staying in New York then do yourself a favour & stay there.I guarantee it will make your trip an even more enjoyable one as it did ours.We would go as far tosay it is without the best hotel we have ever stayed in.
