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!

Customer service par excellence!
Whether we are in the city for business or pleasure, we return to (and recommend to others) the Distrikt Hotel because nothing else compares. From the moment you walk in the door to be greeted by a staff that is genuinely and enthusiastically glad you are visiting, this place is better than a home away from home. Want location? Here, you are just steps from the best NYC attractions. The rooms are spotless, the beds extraordinarily comfortable, the rooms huge (for NYC standards), the view amazing, the breakfast plentiful, and even the towels are old-school luxurious. But what sets the Distrikt apart is the truly amazing hospitality and customer service focus of the incredible staff. The dying art of treating people RIGHT is not at all lost here--the Distrikt Hotel staff far surpasses all expectations in truly going out of their way to look after the comfort and enjoyment of guests.
The Distrikt is not only our favorite NVY hotel; it is one of our favorite hotels in the country. Why stay anywhere else?

From the first greeting at the desk, to their helpful recommendations (breakfast spot - the great Westway Dine - 5 Stars! Attractions, and so forth...) to.... The Room! It was all wonderful, spotless, warm, friendly, modern, amazing bed and linens, and robes and towels, and bathing amenities, and coffee, and...... There was nothing remiss! - it is now our official 'go to' hotel in New York city. ...and the fact that it was walking distance to everything we wanted to see - Broadway, Times Square, Central Park, and more... Perfect. Just perfect.

Room Tip: high floor - we were over-looking the Hudson and the Empire State building (albeit, the empire state...

This hotel is an excellent choice for your stay in NYC. The surrounding area is not the best. Mornings include line-ups at the parole office just down the street. Not the best area to walk alone in. But the hotel itself is wonderful and the staff were exceptionally helpful. Close to subway and a short walk to Grand Central. Rooms are well appointed. I would most definitely stay again. The price point for the hotel bears watching as it seems to be able to vary from being a good deal to somewhat pricey relative to the competition. Shop carefully.

Having read many reviews before choosing the Distrikt I too can confirm its the place to stay. Staff are all very welcoming especially Hugo, yes it's maybe not in the most pretty part of NY but don't let this put you off. I felt it was ideal for getting into TImes Square/Broadway, one small issue with a car booked for JFK, but this was quickly resolved and we made the airport on time. Thanks guys for a great short break.

Possibly not located in the nicest of streets(little but sleazy) but this should not put you off as it is brilliantly convenient for everything. Literally just through the tunnel a short drive from Newark airport and on the doorstep of the theatre district this is a real find. The helpful staff work overtime to ensure that you are welcomed and beautifully looked after even down to a birthday card and treat left in the room for my special occasion. The rooms are immaculately clean and modern with every facility you will need. We had a room on the 31st floor which afforded views of the Empire State Building in one direction and the River in the other which was a real joy first and last thing. Being so high we had what I imagine is a relative rarity in NYC, blissfully peaceful nights which we really appreciated. Plenty of places to grab breakfast within a few short steps if you prefer to leave the hotel and the subway and bus station are really close by. We hope to return to this hotel again!

Room Tip: Higher floors have a view and are very quiet.

Having stayed in awful 4 star accommodations across South America it was like stepping into the Ritz staying at the Distrikt Hotel. I got to check in early at 11am which was the best news after flying for 15 hours! The staff were so friendly and helpful and I really appreciated their help. The room was gorgeous. Lots of space, the beds were very comfortable, the whole place was stylish, new and chic. One of the best hotels I have ever stayed in. I will definitely be back!
