“DISTRIKT HOTEL”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

I booked this hotel because of its location and the reviews on this site. It was well worth staying here. It has a great location only a sort walk to subway stations. Will stay here again when I return to New York

We booked this hotel based solely on the reviews seen on Trip Advisor, all of which were very positive... And the Distrikt did not disappoint!! The hotel was located a couple of blocks from Times Square which made it perfect for getting around in the busy city, but just outside the noise when it was time for bed.

We booked a Grandview King which I would recommend for the amazing views and the free wifi which enabled us to use the internet without running up expensive bills. The room was very modern and spacious, the bed was very comfortable, with a lovely bathroom and shower all of which were cleaned daily.

The decor looked great, very modern and with free computer usage and hot drinks in the lobby. But best of all was the staff at this hotel, we were made very welcome. Nothing was too much trouble and they helped suggest places to visit and eat. We would like to say special thanks in particular to Kevin on the reception who helped me arrange some flowers for my girlfriend on Valentines day via email before we arrived and Hugo who was so friendly, fun and helpful.

Thank you for making our first trip to NY a very memorable one. We will definitely be back...

Room Tip: Higher floors have amazing views of the city

This was a perfect fit for our experience. It's a tall narrow hotel so only five or six rooms on each floor so very quiet. This hotel was not expensive and was top quality. Extremely friendly helpful staff. Could walk everywhere we wanted to go - theatres, hockey game, Times Square, Letterman show... but really close to subway also if you want to venture out. We got to the hotel quite easily from airport by bus and 7 train, and they arranged a car back to the airport which was cheaper than a taxi and was perfect. Lather hair products, which I am now going to order for myself, Keurig coffee in our room, brownies, chocolates. The temperature in the room adjusted easily and quickly. Best shower ever in a hotel. Wi-fi easy and excellent. Room safe was easy to operate. No hidden charges at all. Would definitely recommend this hotel - absolutely!!! Thank you to the staff for making our trip so enjoyable and relaxing.

Green Features: They use Lather products which I understand are environmentally friendly. My hair has never cooperated so well. I am going to order this product for my home use.

What a fantastic hotel! Spotlessly clean, comfy room and bed, choice of feather or synthetic pillows. Great hair dryer in room, no need to bring own. I have long thick hair and it dried it no problem, unlike some hotel hair dryers.
Great location, close to transport links, Port Authority bus station across street (can get bus to Jersey Garden mall from there). Also close to Times Square and loads of other attractions.
Staff are great, we came over to elope and were treated like a king and queen! Special mention to Nisha (sp) at reception who had to take phone for me as people found it hard to understand our Scottish accents, all the staff were fantastic though.
Pay no heed to mention in other reviews about it being in a 'dodgy' area, the area is fine. Never felt unsafe at all, four hotels in a row so always loads of people around.
Beer Authority pub just on the corner is great, loads of beers on tap and great food.
Could talk all day about Distrikt. We will be back, for sure!

I found this wonderful hotel on here and it did not disappoint. Front staff were always very helpful and there is a cute man who always said 'Hello my friends!' every time we entered the lobby. The room was very comfortable and a brownie upon entry will always win me over. There aren't many rooms on each floor so we found it to be very quiet and a view of the river was a nice touch too. Location is a little less desirable (signs describing live girls) but a great find within a good distance of all the tourist hot spots. Great stay with great people to look after us.

First time in NYC...so we wanted something a little lux and near to a lot of touristy things ( ie Broadway, Times Square etc). This place fit the bill perfectly. Stylish, modern, great staff and service. Steps from the above and Rockefeller Center and only moments from the chilly Macy's Parade. We asked for a view (a higher up room) and were given a beautiful space on the 29th floor looking out on the incredible Empire State building. Bed was super-comfy and our stay was over-all very enjoyable.

Room Tip: Higher rooms have better views. We were floor 29. No problems with elevator being available.

What can I say about the hotel?
Our trip to NYC didn't get off to a great hotel. We got a shared van from JFK and it took nearly three hours to get to the hotel. When we arrived,however, our luck changed.
We were greeted by Kevin at reception who was extremely welcoming, informative and helpful. He told us we werw given a comp upgrade and congratulated us on our anniversary. We were given a map and some info about the city.
The hotel room was so clean, in fact the whole building is in perfect condition. The bed linen,towels etc. are crisp and clean. The bed was very comfy and the tv had plenty of channels. Chocs are put in the room each evening with weather info for the next day. They even sent a choc cake to the room when we arrived!!
Hugo is extremely friendly, aswell as Nisha om front desk, Junior on the door, cleaning staff, and all the staff appear to enjoy their jobs..nothing is too much trouble for them.
Location is ideal for Times Square, Subway,Broadway/Theatre District.
The wi-fi is excellent, good sized safe in room, bathroom is beautiful, windows are good aswell. No noise at night time considering how close it is to everything.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our trip to NYC and would definitely recommend the hotel. Hope to see you again guys..keep doing what you're doing
