We were really excited about our stay at Distrikt which almost lived up to expectation. We'd requested that the hotel book a shuttle from the airport for us which unfortunately never turned up.. We'd also requested an early check in due to an early flight arrival which we were promised would be accommodated. Frustratingly after numerous requests we finally checked in at 2:30pm.. Not a great start.
This aside - the hotel is very impressive. A great position only minutes to Times Square & subway station. Very well appointed rooms (high floors are a must) and a nice, safe feel. We noted previous comments about it being an undesirable part of town but certainly never had any concerns at all. Front desk staff had the right intentions but lacked execution where as the doorman were all brilliant and genuinely friendly and helpful.
This is a must if travelling to New York - even with a few early speed bumps, we really enjoyed this hotel and have recommended it to all that have listened.
Tip - check out the deli on 42nd street beside Starbucks (3 - 4 minute walk) for your brekky each day. Great range of food and really cheap!
