Just returned from New York having spent a week at this hotel. I have been to NY twice before and stayed in bigger hotels but this was easily the best! The rooms were great. Bigger than I was expecting and our friends' room was bigger still, very clean, lots of storage space, big TV (they can't be held accountable for the rubbish programmes!), comfortable large bed, very nice coffee and tea making machine and perfect bathroom (large walk-in shower, no bath). We had been attracted by the noise proof rooms. Not sure about this. Our room looked out the back and was quiet but our friends' room overlooked the street and they could here sirens and some street noise but not enough to worry them. We were on the 8th floor and maybe higher up would be quieter. The staff made this hotel perfect for us. They were all very friendly and we felt welcome. They were knowledgeable about the city and happy to spend time advising on buses and metro etc. the computers in the reception were free to use and no charge for printing tickets that we bought on line. I would definitely recommend the hotel and hope to be lucky enough to go back one day.

The reason I chose this hotel over my regular in NYC, which is the Casablanca hotel is because in the Choice Privileges website, which is the loyalty club of this hotel they promise free late check-out. It is a pity that the evening as well as morning shifts at the front desk have not heard about this, and furthermore, refused to check the website. The evening shift referred me to morning shift and the morning shift to the person in charge, who at 8:45 am, when I had to leave for my business, was still not there. I returned at 12 for check out. Then the lady said - well you can check now with my supervisor about late checkout. No thanks - I had already ruined my plans for the day when I had to return at noon. I later spent about 5 miserable hours at the noisy uncomfortable lobby. No apologies from the person at the front desk. Casablanca has a very comfortable lounge with complimentary good selection of food. fruits, cakes, sandwiches and beverages which makes it much nicer for the wait to my late night 11 hours flight home.
I give 3 points because the hotel is clean, well located and generally the staff are polite.

We truly hate when we fail our guests, and that's exactly what we did when we did not investigate the Choice Privileges benefit of late checkout, and immediately granted it as it does indeed advertise it as a guaranteed amenity. We also should have noticed your later discomfort and had urged you to relax in our lounge, Collage. Many of our guests use this as a gathering/meeting/relaxing spot as they catch their breath or wait for transportation to the airport. Should you return to New York City and would be willing to allow our team to show you what they learned from this incident, please do not hesitate to contact me at jrota@distrikthotel.com

OK, not in the fanciest of neighborhoods, but everything you could need close by. The terrific things about this hotel is 1. It's staff - all very nice, happy, helpful, pleasant 2. The rooms are very clean 3. The rooms are very quiet. i had one whose window faced the back/away from the street. Since the building is very vertical, only 5 rooms/floor. My room was very quiet, even the air/heat fan was quiet. Slept great. 4. Beds and linens are comfy and ample. Rooms and closets are small, but OK 5. Complimentary snacks in the evening. I didn't really need more food in NYC, but it was a nice touch and the food was actually very tasty (edamame, cheeses, spring rolls, hummus, etc) 6. Really want to compliment this place on their fabulous staff. not a sour puss in the bunch.

Room Tip: Away from the front/street side. Though maybe those rooms were quiet too.

This Hotel is right in the heart of the Theatre district, just off 8th. It's location means that you are only a few minutes walk from all the theatres, Times Square and even the Empire State Building can be walked in 20 minutes. The hotel would appear to have undergone a recent total upgrade and is very modern in appearance. It is exceptionally clean, has good sized rooms and above all extremely comfortable beds. The staff went the extra mile to ensure that the hotel met all needs. The Distrikt serves only breakfast but its location ensures that guests have a choice of dozens of bars and restaurants to choose from only minutes away.

My husband and I just got back from our first trip to NYC, and we stayed at the Distrikt Hotel. The room itself was plenty spacious (a concern I had when booking hotel rooms in NYC). We were on the 7th floor and the room was nice and quiet. The bed was comfy, the room was clean and did not have the dirty smell of the city (lol), the linens/ towels changed regularly, and our room was restocked daily with k-cups, toiletries, and little chocolates on the bed. The staff was very friendly and helpful as we were newcomers to the city. The location is right across from the Port Authority station so the subway is super close. The hotel is just a few blocks from Times Square, Broadway, Rockefeller Center, etc, so it's pretty convenient if you are just planning on walking as well. But the kicker is WIFI in every room with NO EXTRA CHARGE. You won't find that at most hotels this nice! :) Enjoyed our stay and give it 5 stars!

Just got back from a trip to NYC-- so glad we booked the Distrikt Hotel! Firstly, the front desk staff was very friendly and knowledgable. Andreas was most helpful! Quiet quiet rooms --no street noise or from other hotel guests as there are only a few rooms per floor of the hotel. Location was great. Would recommend!

Fantastic service on arrival and a cake for my birthday :-) Excellent location few blocks from Times Square. Walking location to most of Manhattan. Only downside is we were out exploring so much we never got to know the extremely well thought of staff so well. Very clean hotel with great customer service. Would definitely return if ever back in the city. Gives the 'big fancy' hotels a run for their money!! What's walking a few more blocks after all?! Well done Distrikt :-)
