We have just returned from a short break to New York staying at this beautiful botique hotel.
The rooms are spacious, very clean and very comfy. We had a twin double room with a lovely view of the hudson river and times square.

Shower was fantastic and the toilietries supplied were lovely.

The hotel staff were very friendly and helpful, and the turn down service at night was an extra hidden bonus. They left chocolates and a card stating the following days weather.

You must get the complimentary hot cider from reception its delicious.

The hotel arranged our return taxi back to JFK and when a lincoln turned up we thought it would be more expensive it was actually the same price as a yellow tab!

Would recommend this hotel to anyone wanting somewhere close to Times Square.

Room Tip: Defo go for a room higher up and upgrade to one with a view.

A truly perfect hotel! Stylish and modern with wonderful lovely touches (the free hot apple cider is divine!) this is an excellent hotel that I thoroughly recommend. The staff are wonderful - helpful and courteous. The rooms are clean, spacious and far quieter than most hotels in New York! I would definitely book this hotel again if/when I come back to New York! I totally agree with the other 5 star reviews on here – you won’t be disappointed at all.

Room Tip: Go as high as possible for the best views! We were on floor 20 and had a great view over the Hudson...

The hotel is very clean ( and I am fussy about this) and the staff goes out of their way to make your visit comfortable. The New York Times is available for guests and the location can't be beat for theaters, Times Square etc. Free Wifi, smallish, but overall nice rooms for NY.
The only issue we had was with the restaurant. The personal pizzas ( all three), while tasty, were cold and the waiter did little except say, " I will tell the chef. Other than that, we would highly recommend this place.

Really close to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, which was good for us because we arrived on Amtrak. Our room wasn’t quite ready when we arrived so they upgraded us to a nicer, larger room. Modern rooms, and only 5 rooms per floor. No refrigerator for personal use (just minibar) but you can request a portable mini-fridge like the ones you can get for your car. Free wi-fi.

Just spent three nights a the Distrikt. From the moment we walked in it was perfection! Its a small a boutique hotel, 32 floors with on site restaurant. There are a couple of pizza stores and a 24hour chemist in 2 minute walk of the hotel. Plus many restaurants during business hours. We are night owls so the 24hour places were great for us. The hotel is located on 8th Ave and 40th so within a couple of blocks you are in the heart of Times square ( which is on 7th avenue and 43rd). Yes the Port Authority is very close but that was a benefit not a burden. We used the subay to get around the city -which worked fantastically. On arrival we were given a map with the subway networks on it. They had hot apple cidar every night - goes down a treat on cold nights. A special mention to Cara and Hugo who went above and beyond for us and all our questions regarding restaurants and things to so. They gave such exemplary service.
Rooms are s good size for NY. Our cleaner left us chocolates and brownies so thank you Zena! There are two other hotels right next door to this one - Fairfield Inn & Suites and one other. We booked Distrikt through the hotels website (cheaper than expedia, laterooms etc) and signed up as a loyalty member at the same time. This entitled us to a special discounted rate and I recommend doing this. It's free to sign up and you get cheap rates! Value and location is BRILLIANT. I highly recommend.

Room Tip: Become a loyalty member- we got the second highest floor!

We stayed here for a week at the end of Feb 2013.
Firstly they upgraded us for free to room 3001. It had great views across to the Hudson and had a massive comfy bed. The walk in shower was great and we were treated to chocolate brownies and special cheesecake left in our room. We also got free wifi which was really helpful.
The staff were more than helpful and full of suggestions for eating, shopping or a local bar. We also had breakfast every morning - pre-booked. This was by far the best breakfast I have had EVER! It was a simple menu but completely delicious.
The hotel is located 100metres from 42nd sub, which meant it only took us an hour on the sub and airtrain to JFK. It also meant we were a few blocks from Times Square. It was a perfect location.
Overall I cannot fault this hotel and when I am back in NY I will definitely use again and recommend to all my friends. Thank you

Room Tip: Pick a room in the upper floors for a view.

The hotel was clean and perfect for what we needed. The location is across the street from the Port Authority Bus Terminal and a few blocks from the Times Square Subway Station. The front desk staff were very kind and helpful at our check-in (checking us in early and upgrading our room to a king size room for no charge). I really appreciated the free coffee in the morning and apple cider in the afternoon in the lobby. We went to the cafe for breakfast one morning, and while they were busy, the service was good and the food was delicious. We will definitely stay here again- affordable and clean.
