Expert Review

Opened February 2010, Distrikt Hotel goes for a boutique feel with a New York theme. The city is represented (somewhat abstractly) throughout the hotel: Floors are designated by neighborhood (TriBeCa, Harlem, etc.), as represented by a colorful photo collage in the hallway (decoration within rooms, on the other hand, is the same regardless of which floor you choose), while a 12-foot grassy “living wall” installation represents Central Park in the lobby. The hotel’s restaurant and bar, meanwhile, features locally brewed beers and homegrown Long Island wines. Distrikt’s 155 rooms are simple, clean, and modern with great perks for the price, like free Wi-Fi, flat-screen TVs, iHome docking stations, Frette bedding and robes, and ECRU New York bath amenities. Book a room on a higher floor (16th and up) for views of Manhattan’s West Side and the Hudson River. The location isn’t great (across the street from Port Authority), but Times Square subway stations are two blocks away and prices really can’t be beat.
