US-based hospitality management firm Access Hotel & Resorts is to manage the Distrikt Hotel in New York, US.

The 155-room hotel is located in a 32-storey building near The New York Times Building and Times Square.

The four-star hotel includes a 12ft living lobby wall replica of Central Park, an artist’s rendering of Manhattan’s street grid and collages of New York districts.

Access Hotels & Resorts CEO Tom Baker believes the company will help elevate the Distrikt to become one of Manhattan’s premier properties.
