San Carlos was a great boutique hotel with very competent and friendly staff. Request for a roll away bed was accommodated at no added cost. It has great amenities: very clean, free and reliable wifi, microwave oven and good-sized empty refrigerator in room (aside from the minibar). The location is nice and quiet (great for sleep) while still allowing you... More

My family has stayed at this wonderful family owned hotel many times over the past several years. One cannot beat the location to visit all the New York sights. Once you enter the beautiful lobby you are greeted and treated like family. The rooms are large, always clean and the beds are heavenly. The front desk and the housekeeping staff... More

Very clean rooms. Helpful staff. Close to everything in Mid-town. Comfy bed in a nice-sized room. Would highly recommend. Only drawback that I experienced was the free continental breakfast, however there are two excellent places to have a good hearty breakfast two blocks walk away.

Great location, quiet room. No restaurant, but staff were extremely helpful in getting me a table at the National nearby at 10 minutes notice on a Thursday evening. They also got me off to JFK at 5 am the next morning.On another occasion, I had the free breakfast and there is free wifi which actually works, which is more than... More

This was a great place to stay for families. The location was perfect. The rooms were perfect. The staff was perfect. Perfect! The staff went out of their way. Great places for eating nearby (Especially the Press Box a few streets away and the Luncheonette across the road). Will definitely be back.

Everyone who works there was wonderful to us during our 2 week stay. Rooms are good size (we had a 1BR with a separate LR) especially for NYC. Very clean, well stocked. Basic continental breakfast, good coffee. Wish they would add boiled eggs for some more basic protein (there is cottage cheese and yogurt). Extremely well located on the East... More

We were greeted by friendly smiling staff who immediately upgraded for free to a suite. The hotel is attractive, clean, modern and in a great midtown location. The price includes wifi throughout, a good continental breakfast, bathrobes and a daily newspaper. Perfectly located for sightseeing, shopping, eating and Broadway, and only a couple of minutes to the nearest Subway station.

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
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.
