This was my second business-related stay and started off really well. For some reason, during this visit, I was also assigned a handicapped-accessible room. No big deal, however. The positives are that it's very quiet, comfortable bed, Aveda toiletries, free wireless, and you can have the NY Times delivered instead of USA Today. The big con during this stay was... More

This was my first time at the San Carlos and I was really pleased with my stay. The location is central, and the staff was friendly and helpful. As a former NYC resident, it is tough to find a place that checks all the boxes, and he San Carlos certainly did. The room was a decent size by New York... More

I stay here on my business trips to NYC. The staff is exceptional and friendly, the rooms are comfortable, and it is in a very convenient location for me. The bed is comfortable, a little soft, but quite nice, the shower water pressure is great, there is turn down service. This is an excellent little boutique hotel.

Perfectly located hotel, with spacious rooms, lovely service, a complimentary breakfast and a free WiFi that actually works (though you have to log in every time you return). All for a very decent price. I'll be back

Spent one week at the San Carlos and really liked it. San Carlos is very well located. close to Grand Central Station a couple of blocks away from Central Park we both really enjoyed the possibilities. We were there to run the NY Marathon so being central was import. Also since the race finishes at the Central Garden it was... More

This was my second time at this hotel. I have a family of five and finding a hotel to accommodate that is very hard. Our room had two beds and another room with a pullout sofa bed. The room with the sofa bed was large with a kitchenette and small dining table. The bathroom is a nice size and has... More

We were not long term guests and only there for 2 nights. We nevertheless were treated like royalty. My wife commented that it was like the way the Richard Gere character was treated by the hotel in Pretty Woman. The only semi-drawback was that since the building is not too tall, you will not get the vast view of the... More

I just spent three nights at The San Carlos with my 14 year old granddaughter - her birthday present!! I cannot fault the hotel in any way (although, to be truthful, the decor really needs modernising)! The staff were all so helpful - especially Marleny on reception and Bobby the doorman. Our one-bedroom suite was so comfortable. The separate lounge... More

My son arranged four days in New York for my 70th birthday. Hotel was excellent, even to provididng unbrellas when it rained one morning. Room was a good size, with comfy beds and on 4th floor was a quiet location. Not much view but when you are out all day and most of the evening, it did not matter. Bathroom... More

My family and I ( 5 people) just arrived from NYC. We´ve had a great impression of the hotel. The rooms were very nice and clean. the location is perfect, close to Central Park. Very nice staff. We certainly would stay there again. Wi-fi worked just fine.
