This is the second time staying here at this cozy location. Staff are cheery and rooms are very spacious. WIFI and continental breakfast are included but give your self time for the breakfast. Seating is limited and many take advantage of the free breakfast. No valet parking and recommended discounted parking garage is on 53rd street. Doorman gladly provided location... More

I just stayed for 15 days in this hotel, and everything was wonderful. Perfect for the price (you´re not going to find super luxury), but everything is super clean, comfortable, and spacious. I stayed in a two room bedroom with my two kids and we fit perfectly, small kitchenette, TWO cosets, two TVs. I think the best part was the... More

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and will use San Marcos for future trips to the area. The hotel is very well located in Midtown East with easy access to the subway. The rooms are quite large (especially by NYC standards) and very well maintained. Service is good and there is a complimentary breakfast which... More

This is our favorite NYC hotel. The rooms are a good size with a small kitchenette and are well appointed and spotless as is all of the hotel. The staff are friendly and make you feel like an old friend on arrival. There is a very nice complementary continental breakfast. There is no valet parking and the recommended lot is... More

Travelled in July 2014 with family of four. We had the two queens/standard room and the beds were excellent. The room was clean and very comfortable and the free morning breakfast was good - not extensive but fine. One complaint was how loud the air conditioner was, but I never asked to be moved since I assumed that they were... More

I have just retuned from my NY vacation with my three kids. We spent 8 nights at the hotel San Carlos and could not have been happier with the service and location. Located a few blocks from everything interesting, the San Carlos provides a lot of the amenities needed for a perfect NY trip like free WI-FI, free breakfast (really... More

The entire staff at the San Carlos hotel were wonderful. We arrived around 10:00 pm and were shown to our room. Because our room was located right next to the elevator we requested another room and without hesitation they showed us two other rooms to choose from. We stayed in a suite which was extremely roomy. We were able to... More

We stayed at the San Carlos for 3 days in June 2014, in a junior suite. The hotel location is excellent, staff is great and courteous but the room has a weird smell of old and dirt and so was the room furniture like the sofa chairs. A small improvement on the rooms furniture is must..
