Distrikt is a luxury hotel located in Midtown Manhattan. Distrikt sits on West 40th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues in Midtown Manhattan, steps away from The New York Times Building and Times Square. Part of the Ascend Collection, Distrikt Hotel New York offers a dedication to detail with impeccable service, cutting edge technology, comfortable yet luxurious guestrooms, four -star amenities, and fresh cuisine with locally grown ingredients. This area of Midtown, which could also be classified as Hell’s Kitchen, is a formerly deserted and decrepit neighborhood that has undergone an incredible revitalization in the past decade. The designers and architects at Otte Assemblage chose New York City itself to create décor that includes a twelve foot “Central Park” living wall in the lobby, an artist’s rendering of Manhattan’s grid and unique collages of some of the most famed neighborhoods like its own location, Midtown West.

Landmarks like the Rockefeller Center, the Empire State Building, Grand Central, Central Park and the Statue of Liberty are minutes away by foot, subway, cab or car. The epicenter of business, our Midtown West district is close to corporate headquarters such as Viacom, The New York Times, HBSC, and Bertelsmann/Random House. Distrikt boasts a location that couldn’t be better when it comes to public transportation. The hotel’s proximity to Times Square guarantees that you can get anywhere around the city with just your feet and your Metro card. Times Square has been greatly cleaned up in the last few years, offering lots of areas where it’s foot traffic only. The bright lights of Broadway will sweep you up in their magic – just make sure you also take time to check out the hub of MTV – the network has its studios right in the heart of Times Square. All those times you wanted to be one of those screaming street fans on TRL back in the day? Here’s your chance!
