“Lived up to the reviews”
Reviewed November 12, 2013

We spent three nights at the Distrikt Hotel at the end of September, I chose the hotel after reading the reviews on Tripadvisor and was not disappointed. We had a room on the 30th floor and had a wonderful view of the Hudson river. Our room was very clean and quiet and the bed and pillows really comfortable. We had trouble with one of the lamps and almost immediately a member of staff came and repaired it. We had breakfast at the hotel every morning and we were greeted each day by Robert whose friendly face was a good start to the day, the breakfasts were very good. The location of the hotel was excellent and the staff were very helpful in advising us where to go etc. I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel.

Room Tip: A high room is a good idea

Stayed in the Distrikt hotel for 5 night in October 2013. One of the best hotels I've stayed in with friendly staff, clean rooms and excellent service overall.

The location of the hotel was fantastic as it was only a short walk away from Times Square. The staff couldn't be more helpfull in advicing us on transportation costs and where we would be able to buy Broadway tickets (which could also be purchased in reception).

We ate breakfast every morning in the Hotel bistro, once again the staff were very friendly and there was plenty of choices.

I'm considering going back to New York in the next two years and I will definately be booking a room in this hotel.

Just back from a 4 night trip here booked in January at a great but non refundable rate. Supposed to go with my partner but he was unwell so a pal came instead after asking if I could get an extra bed at no extra charge I was upgraded to a room with 2 double beds on 29th floor. Stunning views. Warm welcome on arrival with a glass of warm apple cider. Free tea and coffee In lobby along with access to 3 computers. Wifi available in rooms at no charge. Hotel was clean, modern and in a great central location. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Totally happy with 2902 on 29t floor funnily enough!!

Anyone who has read my reviews knows that it's about cleanliness, quietness, and comfort of the bed. Distrikt was very clean and very quiet. Bed was fairly good. I wouldn't hesitate to stay again or recommend to anyone. The location is primo. The staff was wonderful! They are friendly and personable, ready to assist with anything. After a long flight, we arrived early and needed to wait in the bar/restaurant area for about an hour. They offered to store our luggage, but we really wanted to unpack and freshen up. The bar has fairly limited hours (opens late and closes early) for us, but it's great to have one on-site. I was very, very pleased with the accomodations.

Room Tip: We faced the street, which you might think is noisy...not so.

When looking for a hotel for a recent trip to New York that included running the NYC Marathon we chose this hotel based on great reviews on this site. We were not disappointed, the reviews were acurate. Although it is situated on a relatively small, quiet street that at first appeared a little seedy, it felt safe and any anxieties were quickly dispelled. (On an early morning solo trip from the hotel, I felt secure as a lone female.) The hotel itself had very hospitable staff who made us feel very welcome. The room was very clean with contemporary decor. With only 4 rooms per floor, there was very little disturbance. Beds were extremely comfortable. The location could not have been better and with the exception of a subway ride to lower Manhattan, we were able to walk everywhere. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel - it had everything we needed and was excellent value for money.

When you've just arrived at your hotel after almost 12 hours traveling, you know you're in for a good time when you're welcomed with some - free - hot apple cider and mac and cheese!
We arrived at Distrikt in time for happy hour, which was Hallowe'en themed since it was October 31st. There's a happy hour every evening between 5-7pm with drinks and snacks.
This is the second time that I have stayed here and I was delighted to discover that it was just as good - if not better - than I remembered.
Staff are extremely friendly - Hugo on the door remembers everyone's name - and they can't do enough to make you feel welcome.
We had a lovely double double on a higher floor with more than enough room and possibly one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in.
I'll be returning to New York in 2014 and won't even think of staying anywhere but Distrikt. Great work, guys!

Everything was great, starting with the fact that I had requested and got a quiet room at the back. I have been to NY a few times, and this is the best we have ever slept. Most hotels ignore room requests!
The rooms are a good size, very modern & clean, with heating & a/c (it was chilly, then got really hot when we were there.) Good size bathroom, and toiletries.
Tea & coffee making facilities were great, with good tea ( I did not have to us my tea bags which most of us Brits tend to do!)
The staff were great and had that USA "can do" spirit. They seem to genuinely enjoy their jobs, which was lovely to see.
We felt very safe there, as the hotel lobby is small, so there are not a lot of people milling around, as there is in other larger hotels. The street is unlovely, but at the hotel end, there are other hotels, and I think it may be a bit of an upcoming area.
We loved the hot cider in the lobby, and the free wifi and computers, so we could easily contact home.
This is our fave hotel, and we will be back. We will be back.
