“Fabulous Hotel!!!”
Reviewed 31 December 2013 via mobile

Can't fault this hotel. Very clean, friendly and located close to a lot of New Yorks attractions. Rooms are very spacious for New York. Breakfast prices are very reasonable. Staff have been brilliant. Thanks for a great 4 night stay.

Stayed December 2013, travelled with family

Reviewed 31 December 2013

We stayed from December 24th - 27th 2013. When we arrived at the hotel we were welcomed by friendly and enthusiastic staff. As this was our first time in New York they provided us with maps and guides. They also provided subway ticket and train information and printed maps and directions for us. The staff went out of their way to help us and were very knowledgeable about the city. The room was very modern and clean and generous in size for a city. Each floor has only 5 rooms making it a quiet and peaceful hotel. The room was cleaned daily with a turn-down service at night. All facilities in the room were great and it was the perfect base for exploring the city.
We had breakfast one morning in the hotel and it was reasonable for a continental buffet. The hotel staff are also very willing to recommend other restaurants/diners for various price ranges.
In terms of location the hotel is perfect, it is a 3-4 minute walk from Times Square and about 20 mins from the Empire State. The hotel is across from Port Authority bus station and the street does look a bit 'dodgy' but the street is always busy and we always felt safe. When entering the hotel we were always welcomed by a member of staff and the elevators require your room key to move for security. Our shuttle service to JFK was proving difficult to organise but again the staff sorted this for us by calling the company several times until it was fixed. I really have nothing bad to say about this hotel and when we return to New York (hopefully sooner rather than later) we will be staying at the District.

Room Tip: High floors do have less street noise but we were down on floor 4 and always had a restful night.

Just stayed for a quick 3 night stay with the Mrs,i can see why this hotel is rated so high.
Hotel is in a great location close to Times Square,Tribecca etc but not so close as to be noisy at night,public areas were lovely,room was comfortable,great bed,clean with a very modern bathroom,all the staff we meet were extremely friendly,helpful and always happy to give advice for directions/sight seeing etc.
Overall we had no complaints and the only reasons for not giving 5/5 is that the room we had was very small & there was hardly any storage or hanging space which did make life a little difficult,however I would recommend it and would stay again.

We stayed at the distrikt 12-19th December 2013. The hotel is in a fantastic location in midtown, only a few minutes walk from Times Square and a 10/15 minute wolf from rockerfella and the Empire State Building. The street the hotel is on does look a little dodgy but don't let this put you off- even when I walked on my own I never felt unsafe.

The rooms are clean and are of good size- we had a grand view king room with a small view of the Hudson River. The towels and bedding were changed daily and the little weather card was a great little touch.

The staff were amazing- very friendly and helpful- always on hand to offer advice and recommend places to eat. They even helped my boyfriend to arrange a welcome surprise of champagne, roses and chocolate covered strawberries for when we arrived!

I would always recommend this hotel to anyone and I would definitely stay here again. Thank you Distrikt for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: If you want a room with a view-then you have to pay for it! I would recommend a grand view king- it...

Clean, friendly, perfectly located across from the Port Authority transit (good for a cheap Deli breakfast). Fluff and fold cleaners at end of block. Very handy for subway, 10 min walk to Times Sq/Broadway. Had no problems with local safety, always plenty of people around. 2 bed double room, stayed with 10 yo twins, small room but we spent most of the time out so wasn't a problem. IMacs in the lobby. Didn't use bar/restaurant but looked good.

Stayed September 2013, travelled with family

Stayed here 4 nights over christmas, and its great base for midtown, very well connected by the subway and easy access for most places downtown. The staff were super helpful and friendly, we had the slightly larger king room on the 31st floor, and was just the right size, generous by NY standards. Very well appointed and overall a great stay, would happily return.

Room Tip: The higher the better to stay away from the NY noises, the city never sleeps!

Booked this hotel because our usual places of choice did not have availability and was not disappointed. Distrikt is not large or grand but is a good value for NY and is centrally located so most things we wanted to do were within walking distance or a short cab ride away - times square, shopping, Rockefeller center. The only thing about the location that is a bit of a negative is that it is right across from the bus terminal - we didn't experience any issues however. The hotel was clean and the room was comfortable - we had a superior king. A decent size for NY. Supposedly there are free apps and happy hour priced drinks in the bar between 5 and 7, but on 2 different days we tried to go only to find the place deserted. Overall, I would recommend this hotel and would stay here again on a future trip to NYC!
