“First Time, Fantastic Choice”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2014

My wife and daughter have just arrived back from visiting New York for the first time as part of my wife's BIG birthday celebrations.......they have had a fantastic time generally, even though "it's absolutely freezing!!!" comments were order of the day. They have nothing but great comments about the Distrikt Hotel, Perfect, Friendly and in a great position were the answers when I enquired how they had found it, "we'll be staying there when we go next time". So its a big thank you to Tripadvisor and the reviewers because without them my daughter would not have found this Gem. Friends that went at the same time hadn't checked the reviews and bragged about the slightly cheaper deal that they had got...oh dear met up whilst there and their hotel was a dump.
If you are thinking of staying here then just book it, you wont get better.

Hotel was somewhere between good and great for its price range. Staff very helpful. Neisha helped us find a Penguin bar. Bathroom was exceptionally well designed and lots of towels. We were there in cold, snow, and sleet for four nights so enjoyed the cocoa in the lobby. While I read the reviews, I didn't realize how small the hotel is. We almost walked past it. And that section of 40th isn't very attractive. But it is convenient. Many restaurants nearby are fun and reasonable
We had a sliver of a view and had planned to go next door to the sky room but didn't make it. Wished the distrikt had some kind relationship with that hotel to make it a little more convenient to visit. I didn't think I would miss a fitness room but I did. I like to take an early morning walk but the weather didn't cooperate. It would have been nice to have a small fitness room with just a couple of treadmills.

Room Tip: High up, toward 8th.

I recently stay at the Distrikt for two nights. Perfect location if you want to be close to many of the Cites main attractions. Everything I needed was In walking distance and never had to used a cab (55 degrees). The room was on the small side but clean the staff was very helpful. I would recommend the Distrikt to Famiy and Freinds.

LOVE everything about this hotel! Booked this as a surprise for my partner's birthday, total gamble as never been to New York before (UK-Based) just went off the reviews on here. The staff are incredible, so welcoming, helpful, the little touches just excelled them... They'd remembered from booking to wish my partner a Happy Birthday, received treats in our room. The bed was THE comfiest bed, so comfy we actually emailed the hotel after to find out what the mattress was! The location is perfect, completely central to Times Square yet not so much so that you are disturbed by the noise. Room Service was perfect and it's not even one of the most expensive hotels in New York by far. This is a hidden gem, if you want service thats a bit more personal, this is the hotel! Can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: All rooms are amazing but try and ask for an upgrade, if they have space they'll do their best.

We stayed at the Distrikt in February for two nights and were very happy. Our room was impeccably clean, quiet (we were on 30th floor) and nicely furnished, the bed was very comfortable and we had a nice modern bathroom. During the day the guest team on reception were very welcoming and nothing was any trouble. In a city where many of the hotels aren't great value for money, the team here have created a notable exception. It's also really well situated and the fact that the rear of Port Authority bus terminal is opposite only adds to this as it offers immediate and covered access to the subway network. The only area that could be improved is the breakfast which compares less favourably to the great diner nearby that the staff were happy to recommend without reservation. The hotel itself is also small so don't expect palatial public areas. Distrikt Hotel delivered all that we wanted. Thanks to all for a very nice stay.

My wife and I were looking for a place to stay for the weekend. So many hotels in NYC are insanely expensive. I was a little nervous about this hotel based on some reviewers mention of location but I thought it was perfect. It's new so it's in good condition. Rooms were kept clean and the service was good. I preferred the location over being directly in Times Square (we never even went to Times Square). I would definitely stay here again and it will likely be my hotel of choice from now on when visiting.
