Even the bathroom decor takes its cues from New York: The tile in each shower stall is placed in the same gridded style as the tiles in subway stations (minus the grime, of course).

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Although it’s on an unlovely street alongside Port Authority, this new hotel has much to recommend it. Distrikt’s subtle Manhattan theme (the "k" is a nod to the city’s original Dutch settlers) is conceptual. Each of the 31 guest floors is named after one of ten beloved ’hoods (Harlem, Soho, Chelsea, etc) and a backlit photo collage created by local artist Chris Rubino adorns the hallways; smaller framed versions liven up the rooms, which are otherwise coolly neutral, with luxury features such as Frette linens and marble in the bathrooms. Request a higher floor for Hudson River or Times Square views—the rates rise accordingly. A 14-foot "living wall" representing Central Park anchors the lobby, but what really impresses is the three big iMacs equipped with free Wi-Fi for guest use. Rooms: 155.
