(as the Americans say)... cant imagine wanting to stay anywhere else in NYC, was so pleased I booked this hotel for a recent 4 night stay - they definitely didn't disappoint! Great location, wonderful staff (whoever is in charge of recruitment is doing a brilliant job) fantastic really clean room - exactly as pictured. On top of all this, all the wonderful little touches.... great courtesy bathroom products - even complimentary buds/tissues which we girlies always need, (and I LOVE the way the cords retract into the hairdryer/iron), ipod charger, free wi-fi, really good coffee/tea in room, free daily newspaper, chocolates and bed turn-down nightly, handwritten daily weather reports left in room, dressing gown...... and to top all that, I prefer fresh milk in my drinks rather than the longlife pods and was even provided with a mini fridge which was just big enough to hold a small bottle of water and carton of milk. It seems nothing is too much trouble. I'd rather stay in a hotel this size with such wonderful customer service than the grander over-priced over-large impersonal alternatives. Well done all at the Distrikt, long may you continue, I don't know when I'll be back in NY but when I do, you will definitely be my first choice. Thank you.

Room Tip: I know there's only 1 queen room per floor, so if you want this particular style of room suggest...

An absolutely fabulous hotel in great location. Wonderfully helpful staff and spotlessly clean accommodation. Take breakfast at the hotel - the cooked breakfast is lovely and very reasonably priced. Loved the complimentary iced tea in the lobby, and free wifi in room. My daughter and I spent four nights at the Distrikt Hotel at Easter and had a fab holiday. We hope to return to NY next year for another short break and will definitely stay at the Distrikt again! Would not consider staying anywhere else! Brilliant!

This was our first stay in NYC! Both the hotel itself and the staff were fantastic!
May not be located in the most charming street but very close to Times square and other great places of interest and a metro stop at 100m.
The hotel room was super clean with nice modern decor with huge flat screen, good wifi and iPod dock radio. All you could ask for was there! We had requested a room on high floor and we got it so it was absolutely great! We also liked the notes left in the evening with weather forecast for the next day and some chocolates!!!
The staff was very helpful and always available for some nice local tips. Thanks a lot!
On our next trip to NYC we'll definitely come back to Distrikt hotel.

Let me start by saying that this was the first time my wife and I had traveled with our 9-month-old son. It was also my wife’s first trip to NYC while it was my second trip (last one was 10 years ago). So let’s just say that I was a little on edge with how this trip would go! Most of my worries were whisked away once we were greeted by the incredible staff at the Distrikt Hotel. When I initially started researching the hotels in NYC I was immediately drawn to the Distrikt (based on the reviews and pictures). Unfortunately, I waited too long to set my reservation and the room price increased by $100 a night. So I ended up booking a room at a different hotel and kept checking back on the Distrikt’s website to see if any specials showed up. About 6 weeks before our trip I got lucky and was able to book a room at $240 a night!

So enough with the back story and on to the review. I could sum it up with one word…phenomenal…but I will go into a little bit more detail. Every employee we dealt with was an absolute pleasure. They were all incredibly friendly and helpful. We were a little bit higher maintenance (because of the baby) but the staff was always accommodating and helped with a smile. The rooms were neat, clean, and well maintained. The only downside to our room was that it was pretty small (as I’m sure is the norm in NYC). It was even tighter for us because we needed a crib…side note to parents with a baby: the crib wasn’t a traditional crib. It was a Pack N Play which worked perfectly for us…The bed was comfortable, the shower was good, and the AC worked perfectly. Overall, we couldn’t have asked for anything more!

The last time I stayed in NYC my hotel was right in the middle of Time Square. Being a 21-year-old at the time, this was a perfect set up for me. But now that I had a baby with me, this wasn’t the experience I was looking for. The Distrikt was in a perfect location for us! We were within a few minutes’ walk of Time Square but were far enough away that we weren’t in the thick of it all. We were close to many great/different restaurants and it was always easy to hail a cab or catch the subway.

I really can’t say enough good things about our experience at the Distrikt hotel. The staff, location, amenities, and cleanliness were all top notch. The Distrikt will be our go to NYC hotel from here on out!

Hi Blake, thank you very much for taking your time to write your review. We are very happy that you and your wife enjoyed your stay and first trip with your baby! We do pride ourselves on our very friendly staff, so it's fantastic to hear they were able to assist you in making your stay as stressless and enjoyable. We encourage guests to contact us directly for great rates, so please feel free to approach us should you have any questions regarding rates (but we are glad that you were able to find a great rate ultimately)! As you mentioned, we are located a few minutes away from Times Square, but not in the heart of the hustle and bustle, making for a comfortable home away from home. We are surrounded by fantastic restaurants, bars, Midtown attractions (Empire State Building, Macy's, etc. are about a 15-minute walk away, and to the other direction, we have Central Park, Lincoln Center, etc. about a 15-minute walk away).
Our rooms are designed for your utmost comfort and privacy, but still keeping modernity in mind. We're sorry to hear you felt the room was slightly smaller than hoped, especially with the crib. Please feel free to contact us directly next time so we can arrange a room best suited for your needs, and we can also provide a great rate for you. Thank you again and we very much look forward to welcoming you and your family again for your next visit to New York City! Take care!

So I booked Distrikt Hotel due to it's high rating on TripAdvisor in New York City. The holiday was for my first wedding anniversary with my wife, so we wanted it to be special.

I began following the hotel on twitter and facebook, and would often retweet interesting things they posted. In February they replied to a tweet I mentioned them and upgraded us to a Superior King room at no extra cost!

The hotel is in a good location, next to the bus terminal and at the end of the street is a subway station entrance. To get from JFK Airport to the hotel we took a taxi, which had a fixed price of around $50 (when getting in a taxi make sure you know the address of the hotel!)

The room was extremely comfortable, with an air conditioner/heater under the window, and a good bathroom with a great shower!

It was in a relatively quiet street, but only 5 minutes walk from Times Square. Our room was on the back of the hotel, on the top floor. We had a nice view to the right of Hudson river, and to the left we could see the Empire State Building.

We only ate in the hotel on one occasion (our final night) and the food was superb, we actually wished we'd ate in there more often.

The staff at the hotel were very personable, on the night of our anniversary we were bought a cupcake and congratulations card by one of the porters. Any time we went through the lobby the staff were very friendly, and with any questions we had about things to do or how to get to places they were very helpful.

I have recommended this hotel to many people already, and I think when I return to New York, this will be the first place I look to stay
