Distrikt Hotel is rebranding to become the Joinery Hotel in 2022. This review is from our visit with the former branding. While we expect some details to be similar, we will update this review once we visit the updated facility.
What do you get when you take a historic Salvation Army and convert it to a modern and hip Pittsburgh hotel? You get the Distrikt Hotel– a boutique accommodation in downtown Pittsburgh.
The hotel opened its doors in summer 2017, and we rushed down to be one of the first guests for an overnight stay.
Posh Ambiance at the Distrikt Hotel Pittsburgh
As soon as you enter the hotel, you'll note that the decor is modern, bright, and minimalist all at the same time. This trend continues into the rooms which offer comfortable beds, one wardrobe, a small desk, and sleek bathroom (with essential oil infused toiletries- Angie's favorite part).
Despite the minimalist approach, the rooms provide the comfort we seek when visiting hotels in the city, much to our delight.
When we wanted to get out from the room, the rooftop terrace offered a great eastward view of select downtown skyscrapers, and the hotel offers free bike rentals for all guests in case you want to get out and explore the city on a set of wheels.
Beyond this, the amenities at the Distrikt Hotel are a bit sparse, and those who are attracted to perks such as breakfast, a pool, or anything else beyond a fitness center may be a bit disappointed. Tack on the $35 daily valet parking rate (without in-and-out privileges), and this is amplified even further.
As such, we have to say that this hotel is especially suited for those who are coming to Pittsburgh in town for business and value the location and boutique hotel ambiance more than other more traditional amenities.
Overall, the Distrikt Hotel is a posh, modern hotel in downtown Pittsburgh. While lacking a bit in conventional amenities, the hotel would be perfect for business travelers who want to be right in the heart of the city.
The Distrikt Hotel was located at 453 Boulevard of the Allies in downtown Pittsburgh. In 2022 it rebranded to be called the Joinery Hotel.
