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.

Room Tip: If you want an excellent view of The Big Apple then book the Grandview Double.Not room related but i...

We arrived early and tired to the warmest friendliest welcome ever, from Tanisha Ward. Our room wasn't available but we were offered cool drinks, rest room to freshen up and for our cases to be looked after, with option to rest in lobby or go out and explore. Lovely rest rooms, nice toiletries and cloths. When we did check in it was quick and bags sent to our room. Good location, near subway and within walking distance of Times Square and other tourist spots. Plus points for hotel, everywhere extremely clean, room servicing (Magdalena) was excellent. Great shower. Free WIFI (loved by daughter). Reasonable size room and on 18th floor the noise from the street was minimal. We could see the river. Coffee maker and supplies, safe and iron in room. Breakfast was decent value, excellent service and friendly staff. Good choice of light bite or full breakfast. We didn't know where to go and eat dinner. Young lady serving breakfast suggested a restaurant. Within minutes the reception sorted a reservation and printed off directions. Fabulous food - Blue Water Grill. Downside, air con in room (1802) was noisy and unit right by one bed, we had to switch it off to sleep. Tiny half height wardrobe and four small drawers between three adults meant we lived mainly out of cases. Not enough of a bother to put us off returning though. We had a great stay, felt like nothing was too much trouble until checkout. We had asked if we should book out the night before as we had a 5am start and were told reception is 24/7. We got to the lobby 20 minutes before transfer bus due and couldn't see anyone. Spoke to a young man using the computer who said he would get someone and went off. After five minutes we asked again and he went off again. Eventually a girl appeared. She checked us out, but we had to insist on a receipt. In addition to food we had purchased, it showed items we hadn't had. By this time our bus had arrived and we held other people up while it was sorted out. Such a shame as up until then service was terrific.

Thank you for taking the time to to review us on TripAdvisor and for mentioning two of our amazing team members who impacted their stay. They will be thrilled to have earned your praise. We are sending someone up immediately to the room to check the belts, and are sorry you experienced the noise. Your checkout experience is, well, unacceptable to us and we are following up on it immediately. We too are sorry you were left with that last impression, if you have time to contact me, I would love to apologize personally. jrota@distrikthotel.com

We've been to NYC a few times and always stayed in the LES in some pretty up market places and I thought Distrikt was as good or better than all of them.

Very different part of town than LES, but the subway as usual is only a short walk away and from there everything is close. We were however an easy walk to Times Square, Broadway, the Empire State and 30 rock... All great places to hit if you're on the tourist trail.

The room was neat and tidy, very quiet and the staff made sure to look after us when we finally woke up after some very late nights in the city that never sleeps.

If you ate going to stay I would also suggest signing up as a Choice Privileges member before you do as the discounted rate was unbelievable.

We spent a long time researching various hotels in New York but settled on the Distrikt Hotel after a friend stayed there and highly recommended it to me.

The hotel were very helpful in arranging a limo on behalf of my husband who had wanted to surprise me. The check in process was efficient and the staff were all so friendly and approachable. They went out of their way to assist.

The room was amazing, we were on 15th floor overlooking Port Authority but didn't hear any additional noise. The room was clean, spacious and well stocked with everything you would expect. Toiletries were very good quality and rooms refreshed daily, with a turn down service and chocolates on the pillow as well as a handy weather forecast for the following day.

The hotel itself is small, therefore you do feel a bit more special and that you are being well looked after.

They were also very helpful storing our bags at check out and arranged a car to take us to airport.

We only had the breakfast once as we found a good place 20 mins away that catered properly for GF diet (Blooms) and didn't go to the bar for the 5-7 drinks and snacks.

It is a 2 min walk from Times Sq, very good restaurants nearby. I am GF so we found Tir Na Nog, Heartland Brewery and Nizza very close by, I would say all within a 5 min walk from Distrikt. These were all excellent for lunch, evening meal or drinks and had a separate GF menu.

I would highly recommend Distrikt Hotel, well done and thanks to everyone there who made our NY stay that little bit more special.

Room Tip: Ask for a room as high up as possible, the views at night are amazing!

Everyone knows NYC hotels are astronomically priced. When I researched places to stay and saw the price of this hotel as compared to others in the immediate area, I genuinely wondered if the room had a bathroom or had been featured on a harrowing episode of Dateline. Much to my surprise it was everything I needed. Short walk to Penn Station, theaters, the park etc and all encased in a sleek, clean and friendly atmosphere. Boutique hotel without the boutique attitude. I will definitely stay here again. I've already told all my friends and family to check them out as well. Promise me you won't raise your prices, Distrikt! You are the best value in New York City.

We spent a lot of time researching hotels before our stay in NYC and the Distrikt did not disappoint. Lots of extra touches which made our trip all the better. Clean and spacious rooms with no noise from the room next to you as the hotel is basically two rooms wide and the bathrooms are back to back.
Courteous and helpfull staff who gave us an extremely warm welcome throughout all of our stay.
Nice bar area with complimentary food between 5 -7 and the food was good. In the morning there is free coffee in the lobby to takeaway and cold fruit tea at night. Free wi fi also with use of computer's in the lobby.
Great location, just a couple of blocks down from Times Square but far enough away to be a little away from the noise of the street. Across the road from Port Authority bus station and 2 mins from subway. We took the air train and then the subway here from JFK $7.50 compared to $50 for taxi and it was so easy to do.
All in all we are so pleased with this hotel and it helped make our first stay in America perfect :-)
