Reviewed 6 February 2013

Have just returned from a 4 day trip to New York, we stayed at the lovely Distrikt hotel.
It was exactly as described, and more contempory, exceptionally clean with really lovely staff, everyone of them was so friendly and always greeted you with a smile and chat.

We had a good size room with two very comfortable double beds, with great views, just a stones throw from Times Square, but so quiet.
If I had to find fault it would only be that they do not serve anything to eat or drink including room service in the afternoons (2 - 5), but they do provide a coffee/tea maker in the room, so it's only because we came back from shopping on the first day and wanted hot chocolate, that I mention it, there is a star bucks 2 minutes up the road, so really nothing to complain about.
I will definitely go back to this hotel.

I have stayed in NYC for many times for business and holidays. This was the first time at the Distrikt Hotel. I think this hotel is better than Milford Plaza and The Cosmopolitan, but absolutely not better than The Roosevelt and Radisson Martinique. So I am a bit surprised that this hotel is at number 6 of all reviewed hotels on Tripadvisor.
We got a very good rate for 3 nights at this hotel. So I was not surprised that our room was at the 2nd floor, next to the elevator. There are only 6 rooms each floor, so the location right next to the elevator wasn't so bad. The rooms are not soundproof, but we were lucky that the side of the Port Authority is a quite street at night, something you would not expect being so close to Times Square. The rooms were clean but not very cosy, I liked the bathroom. There was no suitcase standard, so we had to put our suitcase on the floor. The beds were not comfortable and the bed linen was worn out and had holes in it. We did not use the heater because it made too much noise. Nice touch was the Keurig coffee machine, which made good coffee. And the hotel staff did their best greeting you whenever you went in or out of the hotel. If you would like to stay in Midtown this a good option for a reasonable price, but do not expect something spectacular, after reading some of the reviews on Tripadvisor.

We booked for an anniversary weekend on strength of reviews on this site and on the whole were not disappointed. Service was top draw, particulary reception who could not have been more friendly and helpful. We had a top floor room with great views and had no problems with noise

Location is fine. The immediate vicinity opposite the Port Authority may look a little grungy but we felt perfectly safe, even late at night.

Room are clean and comfortable. A little small and nothing special, but certainly a cut above your typical US chain.

All in all a very pleasant stay.

Room Tip: Go for a higher flooor

A brilliant city hotel. Everything you could want was provided.
It was our 10th wedding anniversary and we given some delightful cakes
and a lovely card,so thoughtful. The staff were excellent and had so much knowledge about the city. Only downfall for us was the weather really bitter, biting winds. But everywhere
looked pretty in the snow. There was always a hot tea available in reception when you returned, hot showers and a cosy bed ! All in all a great place to stay. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: We asked for a high floor with view and our request was given.

Centrally located hotel with a comfortable bed. Nice clean rooms, size was better than what I have experienced in other big cities. The bathroom was too tiny. The bed was absolutely comfortable, and one of the main reasons to recommend this hotel. The location was good only 5 minutes from Times Square, and just next to the subway-system. Restaurants in Hells Kitchen are nearby, and so are cafe´s for breakfast. It is ok in the hotel, but not fabulous.

Room Tip: Middle floor rooms are fine, very little noice!

My daughter and I spent one night at this hotel in the Garment District. It's on 40th between 8th and 9th Avenue. It's a very tall and narrow hotel, with a small lobby and a little restaurant area. Each floor has only 5 rooms. We had a king bed room that was very nice. The restaurant has a limited but adequate dinner menu and the food was decent (we were tired and happy to not go back out in the cold to eat!). It also has bar service. Breakfast was also good....decent selection, including a continental breakfast bar. Room service is available.

The staff was very friendly...every person we dealt with was really nice and very welcoming. I would definitely stay there again....no question!

Room Tip: Our room was on a lower floor, so there wasn't much view. But I didn't find street noise to...

You can't ask for much more from a hotel. Excellent location, service and such a comfortable room! We needed last minute tickets and they were so helpful. Nice bar to relax at at the end of the day too. I can't wait to get back there on my next trip to NYC!!!
