I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in January 2015. Service was friendly and efficient. Room was comfortable and quiet. Free continental breakfast had rather minimal selection, but is clean and comfortable. Restaurant adjacent to lobby, Mint, has superb Indian food at reasonable Midtown prices.

We stayed here as a family of 4 for five nights prior to Christmas (Dec. 18-23) & had the time of our life. Perfect location to walk to Rockefeller, Central Park, and all the sights. More than enough room - kids (age 8 & 11) were fine on the pullout sofa. Enjoyed a room towards the back of the hotel... More

We have just returned from a fantastic stay at this hotel. It was our first visit to the city and we weren't sure where to go, but this hotel is in a great location. We walked to most major NCY attractions no problem from here and if we were going slightly further afield taxis were very inexpensive. The hotel itself... More

We stayed at San Carlos between Boxing Day and New Year and cannot rate it highly enough! We are a family of four and stayed in a Junior Executive suite which had everything we needed. The hotel is in a really central location and within walking distance of many of New York's famous landmarks. From maid service, to the staff... More

Impeccable service and attention to detail. Everything was provided for us before we could think to request. From transportation to dining recommendations. Beautiful suite, fully appointed. Excellent location. Cant say enough about the attentive and thoughtful staff. Our new home away from home in NYC!

Stayed at San Carlos NYC for 5 days over Christmas. Not too many people knew where it was so we got into the habit of saying it was a block away from the Waldorf (which it is). Great location - minutes away from Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Centre and TImes Square. Also close to Central Park and most everything... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
