The service and accommodation at the Distrikt Hotel is excellent, the staff are friendly and welcoming, and look to assist you where possible, even accommodating our advance request for a 'high' room and a (partial) view of the Empire State Building as we were celebrating our 30th birthdays!
The room was clean, modern and comfortable with plenty of space to get ready in. The bathroom was spotless and the power shower was a welcome wake-up call for the day ahead!
The hotel itself is on a 'regular' street, other reviews talk about the parole office and feeling unsafe yet we never felt like this once despite coming back to hotel late on a few nights. The location is perfect, central to Manhattan and within walking distance of the main mid-town tourist attractions and shopping. Access to the subway is at the top of the street meaning travel Uptown or Downtown is easy!
I would also recommend use of the 'All Day Access Pass" with the New York Water Taxi from nearby Pier 86 on W 44th St which gives you a great view of Manhattan from the Hudson River and also provides you with close up of the Statue of Liberty.
All in all, an excellent base for exploring New York!
