Firstly, although it has taken me a year to write this review, this is not an indication of the lack of an impression the Distrikt Hotel made on me. Rather, it is testament to the huge impression it really did leave on my wife and I that I'm back to write the review 12 months later!
My wife and I stayed at the Distrikt Hotel for a week back in March 2012 when we visited New York on Honeymoon. Paramount to us was location, cleanliness and a hotel with an element of modernity - the Distrikt provided all of that and more. Location is everything in NYC: The hotel is a short walk from one of the main thoroughfares, Broadway, and, of course, Times Square itself. Not to mention that attractions such as Central Park and Greenwich Village are 20-30 minutes walk away, should the mood take you. For those who'd rather take the subway, you'll find a station just a few minutes walk away and you can be anywhere in Manhattan within minutes. The only very minor negative with the location is the street itself - whilst it's not the worst by any stretch of the imagination, given it's proximity to the bus terminal, there can be some 'undesirables' hanging about in the immediate locale. I suppose this is like any city in the world mind you.
The accommodation was first class: Rooms are clean, contemporary, well decorated and well appointed. The personal touches in the room were even more impressive. Every day the staff left a NY Times (or similar?), the weather forecast for the following day and some chocolates in our room. Very nice. I can't comment extensively on other facilities as we only used the restaurant/bar on a couple of occasions, there's just so much to see in the city, but what we did see of the facilities was more than adequate. I do remember having a fantastic bit of brunch though!
The staff were exceptional. Always extremely polite, helpful and seemingly very genuine. They always seemed interested in what we had planned for the day ahead too and were very knowledgeable.
We fell in love with New York City during our Honeymoon and will definitely consider the Distrikt Hotel when we do inevitably return!
