“Amazing!”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

My first time in NYC and we stayed here for the weekend and it was amazing! The staff are amazing and helpful!
Our room was spacious and wasn't what i pictured when staying in a NYC hotel. The bed is really comfortable. The lovely brownie and tea is such a nice touch!
The location is perfect near Times Square, Broadway, and Port Authority Bus Terminal, and all the other main attractions.
Loved my stay here! Will definitely stay here again!

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights as a family of 3.
The hotel has a parking agreement with a nearby parking garage, for only $35/day...not bad for NYC prices. When leaving the hotel to pick up your car, prepare to wait 20 min at least. A suggestion would be that the desk could call to say that the guest is coming to pick up their car.
Check in was quick and easy...the staff was super friendly, warm and welcoming. I never felt like it was a bother to ask for anything.
The room was very comfortable....nice decor and quiet. Only one complaint would be to replace the mini bar with a mini fridge. There are so many places within walking distance to get something, that the mini bar seems foolish. We would have loved to have a small fridge to store some water and snacks.
The hotel is in an excellent location...near the busy Times Sq area, but when you want to leave that, you can go back to your quiet little boutique hotel. There is a subway station right up the block and that keeps you one line away from most main attractions (we went as far up as Central Park and as far down to the Staten Island Ferry). We walked to our show on 50th on Saturday night, and it was a nice (and safe) walk home to the hotel.

Room Tip: Definitely choose rooms that are higher up. We were on the 20th floor and that seemed perfect.

Small hotel for NY standards but I found this resulted in an exceptional personal service from all staff. We stayed on the 31st floor and the room was very quiet. Room had everything we needed, comfy beds, flat screen TV with plenty of channels, Kuerig coffee & tea maker, free wi-fi, safe, big walk in shower..... Location is great for tourists, very close to the family owned, value for money restaurants on 9th Ave (better quality and price than the large restaurants around Times Square), and close to Broadway & Times Square in the other direction. The USS Intrepid and River Cruises are a 10 min walk away. Port Authority Bus Terminal is right over the street (but you are not affected by any noise) so direct links to all airports, and to out of town attractions such as Woodbury Commons Outlet and Six Flags. An entrance to the Metro is at the end of the street giving easy access to the rest of Manhattan and other boroughs. Don't be put off by reviews referring to the area as 'shady and unsafe', we were never bothered, and there are a couple of other hotels next door so always people about. Homelessness is a problem all over the city, this area is no different, just deal with it. Would recommend and will definitely stay again on any future visit to NYC.

Room Tip: Rooms on the higher floors are obviously quieter.

I always make an effort to stay here when I'm in NYC on business, which is usually once or twice a quarter. The rooms are large, quiet for NYC, and very clean. The staff is super friendly, and I feel comfortable checking my luggage with them after checking out.

I booked Distrikt Hotel based on the good reviews that I read here and I've not regretted my decision. It is right at the doorstep of Times Square with the subway 1min away. There are 4 other hotels next to Distrikt in the same block but I'm very sure Distrikt is the cheapest of all, but that doesn't mean any less in the amenities, room and service that you are getting. I would give it 5 stars if not for the lack of a mini fridge to keep my milk in the hot summer heat, which turned bad within a day as I left it in the room. The fridge in my room is those stuffed with canned drinks and will start charging once you open the drawer! As such, I wasn't able to store fruits or milk. A slight annoyance. But the bed was comfy, wifi was fast, and it was very quiet up on my 20th floor without any noise from the other occupants (5 rooms per floor), or from the traffic noise.

Closest place for meals would be Westway Diner (which I ate 4 times!) and Theatre Row Diner, all within 5 minutes of walking.

If you want airport transfer, you can ask the hotel to book for you. They booked Super Shuttle for me, but they booked the wrong date and I ended up wasted 2 hours at the JFK airport while I made a new booking on the spot! But to be fair, I didn't check the confirmation details in my email, so I'm also to be blamed.

Apologies for the late review. We stayed here for 11 nights in August 2013. What a fantastic hotel, the staff were great and very helpful, the location was right in the heart of Manhattan Island only 5 minutes walk from Times Square. The room was lovely and the pricing was very good for the quality that we foot. It was a thoughtful touch to arrive at the hotel after a very long flight to find a cake in our room along with a card from the hotel wishing us a happy anniversary. I couldn't recommend this hotel highly enough if you are staying in New York.
