Gotta say I loved the Distrikt Hotel. Mostly because I got so much for so little (booked way in advance and got a pretty darn good rate), a really nice room, and staff that were helpful and --sometimes a surprise for NYC-- genuinely kind and caring.
The hotel itself is in a good location in the midst of everything (takes a little walking but what's wrong with a little exercise?). Every floor has its own theme based on an area of NYC, which in itself showcases the hotel's distinct personality; postcards and photos in the room are related to the floor's theme. Very unique touch.
Rooms with a view are extremely classy and gorgeous; thank you SO MUCH to the staff for upgrading us (we posted in advance on their facebook page and mentioned our upcoming stay to celebrate our anniversary)--they even provided a thoughtful treat for us. Just a little touch that made our stay twice as special.
The iced tea available throughout the day, the free in-room wifi (and Macs in the relatively small lobby), and turn-down service with chocolates on the pillow and the next day's weather was great. Didn't try the restaurant but it looked decent and apparently has a relatively cheap prix-fixe menu.
If you can find it for a decent price, GRAB IT. Very nice place to stay. Couldn't ask for more.
