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

We were a family of five, 3 children ages 10 years old (twin) and a 7 year old. We had stayed there on August 3rd - 8th. We had booked the 600 square feet suite and was truly happy with its size and upkeep. We had two bathrooms, which was a huge plus. The Staff from the front desk to... 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

We just came back from a 4 day stay at the San Carlos (our first). What a wonderful hotel! We knew it would be a great experience when the gentleman at the front desk did a magic trick for our son as we checked in! The entire staff was friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and clean and the... More

For the first time in many trips to NYC, I had a room that didn't feel like a shoe-box. The overall room and the bathroom were really a nice change. The hotel is an older hotel, but it was very clean, the staff friendly, and overall very comfortable. If I had to pick on anything it would be that the... More

Very comfortable bed, centrally located for the subway, good sized room and bathroom... and most importantly for this time of year in New York, powerful air conditioning! Also good as wifi is included in the rate, as opposed to many hotels where it costs extra. There is a free breakfast included, although this is very basic.

My husband and I and our three children recently spent three nights at the San Carlos Hotel in the Executive Queen Suite. It was very large and comfortable for all of us, which is often very difficult with a family of five. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and they provided us plenty of towels... More

When we visit NYC we always stay at the San Carlos Hotel. Great location, extra clean and very comfortable accommodations and common areas with everything you need at your disposable, and most important, the entire staff is super courteous, efficient, always in excellent spirits and ready to assist in a way possible. I just spent two weeks there with my... More
