I have so many fantastic things the say about the Distikt that I don't know where to start...

From the time we booked our trip the staff have been so unbelievably helpful by email. We were staying with many friends and family while in nyc for our wedding and the staff were so helpful with coordinating our bookings and with allowing me to have items delivered to them in advance of our arrival.

On our arrival we were upgraded to the most amazing room on the 32nd floor. Looking out of the window in one direction we had a view of the Empire State Building and in the other direction we had a view of the river.

In the day of the wedding we were able to use the bar area to do our speeches and cake. The staff were so accommodating and flexible in allowing our celebrations to go ahead there that it meant the world to us.

The room was cleaned to an immaculate standard every day and whenever we required additional items they were brought up to our room very quickly.

My husband fell Ill during our stay (completely unrelated to being guests of the hotel am I keen to point out!!) and the staff were so helpful in contacting a doctor for us and then in arranging an ambulance. It was a stressful evening for me but they took a lot of the strain and helped me with sending faxes to the insurance company etc.

I don't have a single negative comment or suggestion for improvement - there is nothing which could be done better! I've stayed in many hotels in NYC over the years but I will make this my first choice for our next visit. It feels like a home from home after just 6 days there!

Thank you so much to all of the wonderful staff for making this such a memorable stay.

What a gem this hotel is. Small hotel with great staff who can't do enough for you and will help you with anything you want or need. Rooms are excellent . Pick a high one for a better view. Hotel is a short walk from Times Square / Broadway and other attractions. subway and bus terminal a short walk.
Would definitely stay here again.

I recently stayed at the Distrikt Hotel. It is a wonderful starting point for a visit to NYC. The staff is wonderful and always a smile.
The location is great! Just 2-3 blocks from Time Square. There are a few strip clubs and porn shops near the hotel, but that is part of any big city. I was with my sister and niece. I was fine with them walking past these stores alone.
The rooms are small, but well appointed and very nicely remodeled. The rooms are very clean. The beds were very comfortable, actually one of the best I have slept on.
Iced Tea offered in the lobby was a nice touch.

A fantastic location, right next to a subway station, Times Square and Macy's! (A 5-10 minute walk.) The staff were super and couldn't do enough to help us, even after we had checked out. Our room was beautiful, the bed amazingly comfortable and a shower to die for! Being on the same street as Port Authority had some real upsides! If you are prepared to walk then everything is reachable (we even walked to the New York water taxi!) if not, hop in a taxi, or even cheaper then the subway. Our room was cleaned to a high standard every day and we were treated to gorgeous cake for a special birthday. It's the little details that count and Distrikt has them by the bucket load! Don't hesitate to book!

Having been fortunate enough to stay at some of the best (read priciest) hotels in NYC, and settled into a routine by always staying at one of the Grand Dames, we were wondering how foolish it was to be always spending >$1000 a night, and what can a more modest budget get us. We would pick 3 hotels under $500 and see how the experience compares. At the Distrikt, for $300 a night, we got the best service of any hotel after travelling to this fair city for 20 years. It was like staying at an old friend's place. The rooms are perfectly good for the price. But the two things I appreciated the most 1) I turn up sheepishly having made the wrong reservation. I needed two beds but knew they were fully booked and that our room was too small for a roll out. I mentioned this, and the girl at reception very pleasantly went off to see what she could do, which was a complimentary room upgrade, with two big beds and the loveliest views... 2) Much later that night, I went down to reception for directions to a cafe for a nice cup of tea, and the person I spoke to told me my options but then offers "..but I can make you a cup of tea" - Really? "...but that is *so* thoughtful I say, can you charge it to my room. "...OH don't worry, no charge". It was like he was my friend and we wandered off to make tea, chatted a while and he made the perfect cup. I almost don't want to relate this anecdote incase everyone who comes here expects free tea. I think he saw the crazed "I need tea" look and figured it was the merciful thing to do. It was such a small thing, but was emblematic of the entire stay. In the frenetic pace of the city, where ultimately everything is a transaction, here we found that most elusive of things: genuine, old-fashioned hospitality. The staff here are all exceptional, I thank them and I can't wait to return.

If a review could define why I practically run to work every morning, then yours does exactly that. I cannot thank you enough for recognizing the team's indefatigable service and the culture that we hope everyone experiences at Distrikt. We thank you for entrusting your stay with us and for promising to return.

Boutique hotel 2 short blocks from Times Square, it is right across from the Port Authority Terminal where you can get buses and the subway plus alot of dinning choices. The size of the rooms are standard NYC size, small but comfortable, the bedding and decor is fantastic, modern and the beds are extremely comfortable. Welcome treat and the nightly turn down service are the extras I don't expect, but add immensely to the experience Distrikt Hotel provides.
This is the 2nd time I have stayed here and wouldn't change my accommodation choice for New York at all.

We loved this hotel. My 13 year old daughter said the staff felt like friends - they seemed genuinely interested in guests as individuals. The location was perfect and the hotel itself was first class. Definitely hope to return.
