We were so well taken care of at this hotel! Our Grandchildren were entertained with a magic trick, and Bobby was always ready and willing to help with our plans for the day. This has become my favorite hotel in NYC. It even serves a Continental breakfast , FREE, in this very pricey town.

This is our second time staying here with young kids. The suites are enormous and very reasonably priced by NYC standards. Our 1 bedroom suite had 1.5 baths, very convenient for a family of four. There was a kitchenette with fridge and microwave, pullout sofa, and they brought a crib. The hotel is immaculate. The location is very convenient to... More

I stayed in San Carlos NY for 3 nights in last week for business purpose. The hotel is located in a good location near to Central Park (1-2km) and 53rd/Lexington subway, it is cafe and shops when you step out from the hotel. The hotel room is sizable, but I have a room facing the window of adjacent building and... More

1st time in New York. Chose this hotel because of its rating on tripadvisor. We were not disappointed. Friendly staff. Large, comfortable and well maintained rooms. Free wifi. Complimentary breakfast. Only once we got used to the geography of the city did we realise what a great location the hotel has. It is a hotel you can feel very comfortable... More

I just spent a week at the San Carlos with my daughter and we had a great stay. We had a wonderful, very comfortable suite room with a king bed for me and a new pullout bed in the other room. The small kitchen was very nice and useful. The bathroom was a comfortable size, very clean with lovely Aveda... More

My wife and I wanted to be tourists for a change, and spend the evening in the city, and stay, rather than head back to jersey. Came across the San Carlos hotel via Groupon, and it was a great choice for my family and I. Close enough to all the tourist attractions, far enough from the hustle and bustle of... 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.
