Recently, my friends and I spent the weekend in New York and stayed at the San Carlos Hotel. The staff were friendly and helpful. We had three rooms and the person checking us in made sure our rooms were all in the same vicinity. The rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. They have refrigerators, microwaves and dishes. The Junior suites... More

Visited with my husband and 2 children (6&10) in May 2015 and loved this hotel- very clean and spacious rooms and staff were so helpful. Location is excellent as handy for sights and subway however not in the 'thick of it' like hotels closer to Times Square. I have stayed in several other hotels in NYC on other trips however... More

We stayed here three nights. We took a suite for our family of four. It had two separate toilets (one in the shower room) which was handy. There was a bedroom with a comfortable bed and a living space with kitchenette and dining table, plus sofa bed and space for a rollaway bed. The gym was good (and empty whenever... More

Spacious room for 2 adults, 2 teenagers and an 8 year old. we had the one bedroom suite which was good value considering the location. Clean, good quality furnishings with nice bathroom and kitchenette area. Free breakfast offered a good selection but not enough seating in breakfast room (not a big deal, you can take it back to your room).... More

5 girls for girls weekend and we couldn't pick a better place. The one bedroom suite was perfect for us! The room was very nice. The breakfast is adequate although there is a delicious bagel place a half block away. We loved the rooftop bar at hotel across the street. I would stay again and highly recommend.

We stayed at the San Carlos on a weekend visit with friends to the city. The rate we paid was quite reasonable for a mid-town Manhattan hotel. The staff was courteous and helpful. The room was comfortable and when we noticed a problem with the drain in the bathroom, it was promptly addressed. The complimentary breakfast was appreciated.

We are fortunate to be able to travel for pleasure fairly frequently, but this trip was for six appointments over two days at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Centers. We chose this hotel for its proximity to the MSKCC 53rd St. location. The cancer center was a quick, manageable walk away. The front desk staff were incredibly accommodating of my... More

Great hotel to stay in a very central location. Very large, clean and quiet room, friendly staff and good service. The breakfast was good, only the room where breakfast was served is way too small and seats are rare!

I chose this hotel as it was the best price for a suite that would accommodate a family of 5 in a central location. (Not many about) It was brilliant. The reception staff were really helpful, nothing was too much trouble with a welcoming smile on your return from a busy day of sight seeing. The suite was large big... More

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.
