We stayed at the Distrikt for 2 nights at the start of our honeymoon. I had asked for the best room available - we had booked a double with a queen bed on a special rate offer - we did get what we asked for and the view was probably one of the best this hotel has to offer. I would not have considered staying there for their normal rate as its way over priced! The room was small but not, apparently, by NY standards. Well furnished, modern and clean. My only complaint was you cannot store your own water in the fridge and they charge a small fortune for their own! Reception were very helpful and efficient. The free internet and tea in the lobby is an excellent touch! Only 10 minutes walk from 5th Avenue and in a safe location, if a little run down in parts. Very close to lots of good restaurants and shops. It was an excellent location for getting to see NY midtown and I would stay there again - if the price was right! After a 10 day stay in Grenada we returned to the Distrikt for another night. This time we got a much smaller room with a view of car parks! It still had a queen bed, as I had pre-booked, but was significantly smaller that the first room. I believe this is the standard size of most of their rooms. Overall it was a really good place to stay – we will check it out again when we return to NY but would only book it at a discounted offer as the standard price is way too high for what you get!

Thank you for taking the time to review our hotel! We do have a total of five room types, and whenever we hear of special occasions (we were thrilled you chose to share your celebratory time with us) we do our best to upgrade our guests to the next category. The queen room that you stayed in on your return is indeed our most economical, but we only have 31 in our 155 room hotel. We look forward to welcoming you to the hotel again, you can always use the TripAdvisor discount for an extra savings!

The Distrikt hotel is in a great location near times square down a fairly quiet street. The room was very spacious considering we were expecting a tiny room. Our room had two massive double beds, HDTV, free wi-fi and a free to use safe. The air conditioning in the room made our stay very comfortable as we visited when it was extremely hot. The staff at the hotel were very helpful and friendly allowing us a late check out and organising transport back to Newark airport.
While the price was not the cheapest in the world, i think it was very good value for money for a hotel in Midtown. I would definately stay in this hotel if i visit New York again.

We spent three nights (Fri - Mon) at Distrikt after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Everything we read was accurrate.

The hotel is very, new, modern and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful. In some previous posts I read, people were a bit sour on the location. I actually think the location is one of the greatest parts of the hotel. You're a short walk from Times Square, Broadway, Penn Station, Hell's Kitchen, the Bus Terminal, and there is a subway station at the end of the street. Yes there is a porno shop and a liqour store on the street, but it is not like there are degenerates roaming the street. We never felt unsafe on the street at all (always tons of people around in any event).

Rooms are nice. They are not large which was not a problem for us, however if you were staying more than 2 people to a room it would be a bit tight. The beds are sooo comfortable.

My only complaint is that we requested a room with somewhat of a view and were instead put on the second floor. While we were okay with not having a view we did discover one other drawback to the second floor which is that there is a housekeeping supply closet on this floor which meant a lot of noise and door slamming early in the mornings. Other than that, not a single complaint. Great value!!

I had a last minute business trip and didn't find a good deal but did find good value at the Distrikt. Room was very nice (small but it's NY), crisp, comfortable, free Internet. Front desk staff was very nice and professional, helpful. Great location in terms of restaurants and subway access.

i went to new york for three days and needed a hotel. This place was perfect, its a block away from time square,it's small, clean, and the srvice is good. It's sttyle is boutique and so i was expecting minimalism and style and the delivered. Everything is well thought of ie: the rooms are small as any would be in new york so the mirrors ,bed heads, light fixtures lay flush to the walls so the dont make the rooms look smaller by sticking out. It served me and my wife just fine. Cute detail is there are some vintage carafes in the lobby where you can serve yourself a cold ice tea while surfing the net and both are free, you dont get anything free in NYC trust me. The street is a little tricky since you are right beside port authorities and a subway entrance but other then that i liked everything about it.

This was our 4th time to stay in New York and our 1st in the Distrikt Hotel which is by far the most impressive hotel we stayed in New York. The hotel itself is very modern and spotlessly clean. The rooms are spacious (in comparison to other NY hotels), bathroom is big and a brilliant shower. I made my reservation directly with the hotel and they offered the best rate by far and they also upgraded our room after I told them we were visiting NY for a special birthday!! To be honest I can't say enough good things about the hotel. The location was ideal for us - close to Times Square and the Port Authority and loadsa nice places to eat close by. As for the staff, absolutely brilliant - in particular I would like to say thanks to Chris and Jennifer for helping me out with a personal problem I had - it was much appreciated. I strongly recommend this hotel and we will definitely be back - hopefully soon!!

The new Dristrikt Hetel has everything going for it except location. It is wedged into a tiny front door presence on W. 40th between 8th & 9th, close by the Port Authority. The volue for the price was very good. The friendliness of the entire staff, I cannot over emphasize! The free coffee & juice in the cafe was great & pleasantness of the serving personnel excellent.
It is done in the Mahattan districts locale style. The ease of using the card both in the elevator & room was very smooth.

Overall a great experience.
