I have just retuned from my NY vacation with my three kids. We spent 8 nights at the hotel San Carlos and could not have been happier with the service and location. Located a few blocks from everything interesting, the San Carlos provides a lot of the amenities needed for a perfect NY trip like free WI-FI, free breakfast (really... More

The entire staff at the San Carlos hotel were wonderful. We arrived around 10:00 pm and were shown to our room. Because our room was located right next to the elevator we requested another room and without hesitation they showed us two other rooms to choose from. We stayed in a suite which was extremely roomy. We were able to... More

We stayed at the San Carlos for 3 days in June 2014, in a junior suite. The hotel location is excellent, staff is great and courteous but the room has a weird smell of old and dirt and so was the room furniture like the sofa chairs. A small improvement on the rooms furniture is must..

We have stayed in the San Carlos a couple of times and what we like about it are the rooms we have had are a good size, the service is very good, and the location is great. Plus it includes a breakfast. We have always stayed for business, but this is also somewhere I would bring my family.

I stayed in June 2014 and was very pleased to have chosen the San Carlos. The rooms were clean and spacious, and the staff very helpful. The location is good, within reasonable walking distance (for my family, anyway!) of quite a few attractions such as Times Square, Central Park and Bloomingdales. We chose not to have the complimentary continental breakfast... More

Nice boutique hotel for family of four. We wanted the extra space and privacy. Front desk and bellhop, maids were very helpful and pleasant. This is not an upscale hotel - our rooms did not have a view and the furnishing was very basic, but the beds were comfortable, everything was very clean, and by New York standards it was... More
