Our start to this place was terrible: - Our apartment was a sixth floor walk-up (i.e. no elevator) at 75 E 3rd St - The NY Hells Angels were in the adjacent building and decided to practice their instruments (but stopped around 9pm so not a big problem, just a mil annoyance) - The worst part was bedbugs. I woke... More

Stayed last week with friends and realized that the place had actual tenants living in the building! If you're booking apartments for short-term stays in New York City it is ILLEGAL as of May 1, 2011. We should have better researched this place before we stayed there last week. If you google Sanctuary Guest Suite + Illegal Hotel NYC you... More

I've been to New York City a few times and was referred to Sanctuary Suites by a friend. Boy, was I glad they did! Instead of an insanely expense, super small hotel room; this place has lovely spacious, homey feel to it. There's even a kitchen, so you can cook your own meals if desired. After going, going, going all... More

I stayed at the Sanctuary Suites with some friends for thanksgiving and it was amazing! A team of young people is there to help you with anything they can, the rooms are cozy and spacious. Being able to spend time with friends in an apartment, just hanging out for thanksgiving was amazing. And on top of that the view they... More

Close to subway, walking distance to midtown (locals told me to take pretty 9th st), wholefood s/market-3 mins walk- which we rarely used as the cafes/restaurants/bars were... More

My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Sanctuary Guest Suites very much and would stay there again. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The rooms are small apartments, which include a small kitchen. We loved having a kitchen! The apartment was clean, modern, and very pleasant. The location was great for us as tourists, great restaurants in the... More

I stayed here for several nights and would highly recommend it to anyone seeking the comfort of home in an amazing location. By far, one of my favorite aspects of Sanctuary Suites in the great downtown location which is close to great restuarants, bars, shopping, live music and several subways. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and made me... More

Having lived in NYC for 10 years (and now moved away for over a decade), the last thing I want to do when I go back to The City is to impose on good friends by sleeping on their couch. I also can't bear the thought of plunking down money on a touristy hotel room. If anything, I want to... More

If your ideal holiday is staying in a dirty, loud, and cramped apartment that is literally next door to the Hell's Angels Headquarters in NYC, you will love this place. If not, then DO NOT STAY HERE! We originally booked the new Sanctuary Guest Suites on Stanton St. However, after dragging the family all the way downtown we found that... More

Staying in Lower East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Lower East Side
Straddling the bridge between New York’s thriving immigrant past and its modern transformation into a beacon of global art and culture, the Lower East Side is one of the most dynamic neighborhoods in the city. The blocks of tenements that represented the promise and blight of the Lower East Side immigrant experience now command top dollar for new residents. Right next to old-world delis, 24-hour bodegas, and the garment shops of Orchard Street, you’ll find hip clubs, fashionable bistros, and luxury hotels beckoning at all hours of the evening. If you love nightlife and live music, it’s hard to beat the scene here.
