Distrikt Hotel Embodies Distinctive Neighborhoods

New hotel debuts in Midtown Manhattan

eTN Staff Writer  Feb 02, 2010

Embracing the look and spirit of Manhattan's "distrikts" with neighborhood-themed floors from the Financial District to Harlem, the grand opening of the Distrikt Hotel was celebrated today.

Whether checking into the "Soho" on floor 12 or "Chelsea" on floor 20, guests will be assured of the same outstanding service, convenient location, and distinctive New York style. The sleek, skyscraper hotel is also home to the Collage restaurant, celebrating New York foodie favorite dishes and drinks.

The soul of Distrikt Hotel lies in its celebration of Manhattan. OTTE Architecture, the New York-based firm that designed the hotel, tapped artist Chris Rubino to put local style on display with back-lit collages of iconic neighborhood scenes on each floor. The collages were composed from over 10,000 photographs distilling the essence and style of Chelsea, The Village, Midtown West, Midtown East, Central Park, Soho, the Lower East Side, Tribeca, Harlem, and the Financial District. The New York-centric theme continues in the lobby, including an 11-foot green "living wall" representing Central Park, a front desk installation inspired by Manhattan's grid and a subway map-themed elevator bank.

Located at 342 West 40th Street, the Distrikt Hotel offers 155 guestrooms with amenities including free wireless Internet, flat-screen TVs, iHome docking stations, Frette linens, and ECRU New York bath amenities. Upper floors feature unobstructed views of the city. The hotel is steps from Times Square and the Fashion District and the sights, sounds, and scenes that make its home the greatest city in the world.

Collage is a stylish and contemporary dining venue offering New York-inspired cuisine. The menu is created from ingredients procured from local purveyors and Collage's beverage selection features an assortment of local microbrews as well as an array of signature cocktails.

Distrikt Hotel is a member of the elite Ascend Collection, an upscale network of Historic, Boutique, and Unique hotels across the US and Caribbean providing guests with access to Choice Privileges, the award-winning rewards program.
