This was almost a perfect stay: lovely - very small room though - very very quiet our room faced the back of the hotel, excellent sleep, nice bathroom, super clean…
There is coffee & tea in the room (lovely brownies too), no mini fridge. It is centrally located, easy access to everything in NY. There is a small deli with plenty of fresh food/ fruit/water on 42nd avenue just a block away which is great if you get sick of take out food or restaurants.
So it’s all good, comfortable and practical.
The only annoying thing… for those who like to use the gym even on holidays: the hotel does not have a gym, so i joined the City Gym on 42nd avenue literally just around the corner from the hotel, paid 60 dollars, only to find out later that the Distrikt hotel gives out free passes to that same gym! (i found out while i was looking for check-out times in the hotel book)
Felt a bit annoyed, as noone mentioned the gym option at reception when we arrived (and even tough i told the gym staff we were staying at the Distrikt hotel, they didn’t mention the free passes either - of course)
so. not so nice, it’s an expensive travellers’ tip, but at least you guys know it now: you can get free passes to the City Gym!
Hotel Distrikt: please make the gym option this more obvious to your guests!!!
