We take an annual girls trip to the US Open. This is our 4th stay at the San Carlos. Each visit, we are treated like family coming home to visit. Bobby, greets us at the door like a long lost cousin. Gabriel, behind the desk, has a magic trick for us each time. We would never stay any place else.... More

Have always used the Best Western Hospitality House on 49th, but they were booked and suggested the San Carlos. Using their advance purchase, non-refundable option, I saved the equivalent of a night's rent on. 4-day stay. Spacious living room w/mini kitchen (only complaint there is no ice except from concierge). Free breakfast (bagels, muffins, pastries, cereal, yogurt, fruit, coffee, tea,... More

We stayed here for one night to attend a family event in NYC. The suite was very clean and spacious for 4 adults and a 2 year old. The beds were very comfortable. The staff was very helpful with great recommendations for child-friendly restaurants and nearby parks. Everyone from the desk clerk to the doorman were very friendly and welcoming.... More

All in all, it's a great hotel to stay at in NYC. The location is great, a few minutes away from Central Park and Times Square, the most visited places by tourists. As well, it's a few blocks away from several Subway Stations, allowing you to go anywhere in NYC. The acomodations are great, also the personal and the cleanliness... More

Just returned from a great stay at the San Carlos. First of all the location is very convenient for the subway being only a couple of hundred metres from two different stations. We got the subway from JFK via Jamaica station in around 50 minutes which was probably quicker than a cab given how busy the traffic was. We then... More

Found San Carlos after quite a bit of research. It was our first time in NYC as a family, having individually stayed at the Roosevelt and in NJ before. We had a very pleasant stay.The room was always taken care of. The attention to detail such as keeping the breakfast supplies filled up, bathroom supplies, helping with directions, or a... More
