The Distrikt

342 W. 40th St., between 8th and 9th Aves., New York, New York, 10018, USA

Rising high above Port Authority, the Distrikt tries to approximate the boutique hotel experience in an area of town best known for its bus depot, and for the most part, it succeeds. The staff is solicitous and helpful, giving directions, assistance with baggage, and warm smiles at every turn. Each of the 32 floors has a colorful backlit collage of a different NYC neighborhood, and you receive fudgy brownies and chocolates in your room on arrival. Rooms also have Keurig pod coffeemakers. Bathrooms are bright, with great water pressure, and the beds are exceedingly comfortable. Though the lobby is small, it has three computers with large flat-screen monitors for guests' use, and complimentary coffee in the morning.
