My girlfriends and I stayed one night for a quick visit. Besides being close to subways and the bustle of midtown, both staff members that we dealt with were charming and very helpful. Beds were comfy, showers hot, and complimentary breakfast was decent.

We stayed at this hotel March 27-April 4 and loved the experience. The lobby, though not large, is quite attractive, and the two elevators are most efficient and surprisingly fast. We were on the tenth floor in a junior executive suite. The suite was very spacious, and though the furnishings weren't especially glamorous, they were nice and not worn. The... More

My family just stayed at the San Carlos Hotel for the third time. Wonderful central location, close to sites and transportation. The rooms are spotless, staff is helpful and most professional. Highly recommended!

I have just spent a whole week at this fabulous hotel with my friend, as we celebrated our 50th birthdays. We could not have chosen a better hotel. It was a delight from start to finish. It is in tip top condition, no peeling wallpaper here. The staff were really helpful, polite, but not stuffy. When our TV didn't work... More

My first visit to NYC, and this hotel was wonderful. We were within walking distance to Times Square, Central Park and the Empire State Building. One of the few hotels to offer free breakfast. Your basic cereal, coffee, juice and bagels but good enough to get your day started and be on your way. Our room was very clean and... More

My family of 4 spent a week in NYC and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the San Carlos Hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. We saved a lot of time and money on breakfast as it is included at the hotel. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff who bent over backwards to accommodate. We were allowed... More

Our stay at the San Carlos could not have been better! From the moment we arrived, we received nothing less than first class service, greeting us by name, smooth, quick check-in (love the reception staff!), large, clean room, well- appointed bathroom and to our surprise, a basket filled with treats for our stay! (I had mentioned we were celebrating a... More

We travelled here with our 2 children in 2007 but have only reviewed this now and it was and has always been one of the best holidays we have had as a family. We were in NY for a friends wedding which took place on Brooklyn Bridge....which was a beautiful location for such a special occasion. We all loved the... More
