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

This is the second time staying here at this cozy location. Staff are cheery and rooms are very spacious. WIFI and continental breakfast are included but give your self time for the breakfast. Seating is limited and many take advantage of the free breakfast. No valet parking and recommended discounted parking garage is on 53rd street. Doorman gladly provided location... More

I just stayed for 15 days in this hotel, and everything was wonderful. Perfect for the price (you´re not going to find super luxury), but everything is super clean, comfortable, and spacious. I stayed in a two room bedroom with my two kids and we fit perfectly, small kitchenette, TWO cosets, two TVs. I think the best part was the... More

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and will use San Marcos for future trips to the area. The hotel is very well located in Midtown East with easy access to the subway. The rooms are quite large (especially by NYC standards) and very well maintained. Service is good and there is a complimentary breakfast which... More

The staff are friendly and make you feel like an old friend on arrival. There is a very nice complementary continental breakfast. There is no valet parking and the recommended lot is... More
