“Wonderful!”
Reviewed October 25, 2010

We had a fantastic stay at Distrikt. We are so happy to have discovered this gem of a hotel. From my initial communication with the staff via email through to the great staff at the hotel, we couldn't have been happier. The location was great. We loved walking down 9th, heading to the restaurants that were recommended by the hotel, and seeing NYC life that was not totally filled with touristy places. Thank you for creating such a wonderful space.

This was our first trip to NYC which seems to have a reputation for expensive hotels with tiny room. We had been searching sites for months before finding what we hoped would be reasonably priced, decent sized room. Emails before our trip were answered in an efficient manner. We were checked in when we arrived at 2pm and quickly escorted to our room. We found the room spacious enough for two people who are off sightseeing most of the day. The bathroom was attractive with good quality supplies and a bathrobe. We had no problem with the decor in muted colours, being used in many 5 star hotels now. Being new everything worked, beds very comfy and we had no problems with either guests or traffic noise - a BIG PLUS in a city that never sleeps! Reception staff were all so helpful no matter what the query. Not having a laptop with us, finding 3 fast connecting Mac computers where I could actually contact family in Australia most times I wanted to use one was great after some of my experiences in the 6 weeks we had been travelling. Having a long stay we asked if we could have a room on a higher floor with a bath. We were thrilled when this was done within a few days. It's location is great for access to a variety of eateries & Metro. All in all we felt very lucky to have found this hotel. I found some of the review comments from past guests surprising after having experienced some hotels in Europe. We are certainly satisfied guests and thoroughly recommend it for most travellers.

The reception and service staff here is excellent. Incredibly patient with my parents, who hadn't been to New York in 25 years, and asked a lot of questions about everything.

We booked two rooms, and couldn't get them next-door, but they allowed early check-in and gave us a complimentary upgrade for one of the rooms. Rooms fit a king bed with a little space to spare. Tight bathrooms, typical for NY hotels. Rooms were kept very clean, and regularly restocked with Frette linens. Free wifi in rooms.

Located within 5 minutes of the 42nd St station and Port Authority terminal. Walking distance to Penn Station. Definitely would stay here again. Uncommonly helpful and kind service for a New York hotel.

Had a wonderful stay at Distrikt Hotel over Labor Day weekend. Perfect location for sightseeing & within walking distance of Times Square. Room was small but clean and accomodating.

I found Distrikt Hotel on TripAdvisor and was not disappointed. The accommodations were modern, clean and well-maintained. The registration desk staff were cordial and helpful. It was in a very convenient location to entertainment and dining options. And it was a great value.

I've stayed in dozens of hotels in NYC, and we decided to give the Distrikt Hotel a try because it was new and had a good rating on trip advisor.

Pros: Very clean rooms! The rooms were also a decent size. The ambiance of the hotel was also very cool and hip. We loved the ice tea in the lobby. It was also a very reasonable rate for October in the city. Very convenient location!

Cons: We arrived about 2pm (an hour before check-in) and we couldn't get into our room until check-in at 3, so we were sitting in the lobby for an hour. The only other problem we had was that housekeeping keyed into our room at 8:30AM on sunday morning!! C'mon, it's SUNDAY morning! Why would house keeping try to come in that early???

We'll probably give the Distrikt another chance, everything else was good!

You have unfortunately caught us in a Catch 22 - we try to clean rooms for our incoming guests as early as possible so that they don't have to wait like you did. We do hope you stay with us again, and if you use the Do Not Disturb sign we promise not to intrude.

Hard to come by a NYC hotel with all these qualities in a decent location in Manhattan, but the Distrikt met all the criteria. Very close to Times Square and metro station, this hotel is brand new and it shows. Rooms are nicely appointed, the bathroom is spacious, and it has all sorts of perks such as iPod docking station and bathrobes. The staff was nice and they offer complimentary wi-fi and newspapers. My only complaint is our room was right next to the maintenance staff closet so from very early in the mornings it would get loud with the staff coming in and out of the closet. That's why I gave only 2 points for quality of sleep. If you can get a room far from that corner, thumbs up!
