If you want luxury go to The Chatwall or Waldorf Towers but if you are looking for a great location, a... More

The San Carlos Hotel is in a great location. You can walk to Central Park ,Times Square, and Grand Central Station easily. It is very close to great shopping and the subway. The hotel is clean and the rooms are spacious (by NY standards). We had absolutely no complaints at all about this hotel. The continental breakfast was also very... More
