I needed three nights near 8th and 40th for a business trip and hated the idea of having to pay midtown Manhattan rates. So I found this "Distrikt" place, which I'd never heard of before. Showed up the day of the Manhattan Marathon, so the lobby crowd was a mite mixed and the staff had that "we're young trendy and live in Manhattan and you do not" kind of look...
... and then I approached one. Very friendly, efficient, helpful. It was like that the whole three days. Talked once to a guy named Hugo, who seemed to be there 24 hours a day, and he remembered my name, as did most of the staff. Turns out the hotel is new, built around 2010 where there was once a parking lot, so it's all new. Right by the subway (no surprise, it's midtown) and the Port Authority, which didn't help me but would be pretty useful for others. Definitely returning for my next trip and recommend it to others. Remember, it's New York City, so don't be surprised when that $240/night room becomes $400/night after taxes. -- Mark Minasi
