Location, location, location

The outstanding feature of this hotel is the location. Just off Times Square means that it's right at the heart of the action and has excellent links to the rest of the city making it easy to get everywhere. The room was okay, a little dusty but not dirty and comfortable enough. The bathroom was very clean and shower was very good. Better soundproofing to the corridor would be ideal. The free wi-fi worked perfectly.

Great Hotel

Service at the hotel was excellent nothing was too much trouble with lots of little touches like iced tea and water in reception for free just what you need after a long day in NY. Room was also excellent with the biggest and best bed we have ever slept in at a hotel. The shower was large with plenty of space to move around so we didn't miss there being no bath. Coffee machine gave good quality coffee and tea. If you wanted to quibble then maybe they could have provided more complimentary coffee and tea? We have seen some comments about the room being small but we found it more than big enough and anyway you are in NY how long are you in your room for? We have also seen comments about the street the hotel is in. We had no problems. Times Square is only minutes away and we liked being able to escape the full-on hustle and bustle. We alsoliked the modern quirkiness of the hotel.

Good Hotel

This hotel was very clean, the staff was super friendly and I would stay here again. Very easy to get to, but also very quiet. My only complaint is that the continental breakfast costs 11 dollars a person. For Coffee, toast and yogurt, that seemed like a lot of money. Other than that, this hotel is a great value and I would recommend it.

great place

I booked a room for one night a day or so before and got the great rate of $109/night. And for that price, the place was wonderful (actually, it would have been wonderful for even twice that price). They gave me a room on the 22nd floor with a great city and river view, there was a great coffee maker in the room, free wifi, pretty furnishings, nice sheets and towels, and chocolates left on my turned down bed when I came back from my evening out. I highly recommend this place. Oh, and it's right across the street from Port Authority and lots of subway lines.

Schnippers - on 8th Avenue and 41st Street - is a great place for a quick, casual meal. I've always loved their fish and chips with tartar sauce!

FANTASTIC, BRILLIANT, SUPERB Hotel

It doesn't get any better than this. The Distrikt hotel in Midtown New York City is a fantastic friendly hotel close to all the main attractions that New York has to offer. Attention to detail and those personal touches that both the hotel and staff offer are second to none. I cannot find any fault with this place and would 110% reccommend it to everyone

Perfect for our short trip to Manhattan

I wasn't sure the excellent rating reviews about this hotel were going to be so accurate but they were. The hotel is situated a few minutes walk from Times Square and 42nd Street and the foodie district of Hells Kitchen and so is perfectly convenient to get to anywhere. However, the street is right by the Port Authority Terminal and so there are quite a few homeless people around but the Police presence is significant and therefore you don't feel threatened at all. The staff at the hotel are excellent very courteous, happy to see you and very helpful. Our door man walked with us to hail a taxi two blocks away from the hotel - that's really being helpful!! The rooms are small but sufficient and very clean. The beds are comfy and the coffee/tea machine in the room with delicious chocolate brownies being provided. The breakfast provided is excellent too. I would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting to be in the thick of it in Manhattan.

Get the New York Pass before travelling on line, it's cheaper access ticket to all the attractions including the bus tour of all the 5 boroughs - highly recommended. You don't need to buy the VIP ticket for the bus as they drivers don't really abide by it.
