Only stayed one night but The Sanctuary made a very positive impression. Great welcome, warm comfortable room and quiet room (400) at rear of hotel. We had a breakfast inclusive deal and couldn't fault it - asked if we would like to take a box for later! Would stay again.

The Sanctuary is a quaint, small hotel near Times Square. We happened to come across it when our regular go-to hotel was booked. Very friendly staff, clean, extremely comfortable rooms. Breakfast was included in the rate, which is unusual for NYC hotels. My only negative was breakfast, which I'd rate as fair because the cooked food wasn't kept warm (no... More

Very good location, with easy access to subway, Times Square and theater district. It is worth to mention the excellent service rendered by the amiable staff and that Sanctuary it is one of the few hotels with breakfast included. Last but not least, it is important to bring up that concierge team is superb, provides good hints for restaurants, nightlife... More

The Sanctuary Hotel is a very cool, laid back hotel in a primary location. As you enter the hotel it has the feel of a very chic night club. The rooms were a good size and comfortable. The main point for me though was the staff, friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

The Hotel upgraded our room complimentary and it was excellent. The location was ideal for visiting all the major attractions - most of which are within walking distance e.g. times square, central park, broadway. There is also a very cool bar/lounge on the roof which is very convenient.

When we come to Manhattan, we like to see shows. The Sanctuary provides such convenient access to the theater district. The location is steps away from Times Square. This was our second stay and we enjoyed it as much as the first. The staff is very friendly and takes care of all your needs. The rooms are beautiful and immaculate.... More

This hotel is in an amazing location!! You walk down the street and you're in Times Square!! I was dubious about staying in Times Square due to the noise, however this hotel is so quiet you forget you're in the city that never sleeps. The staff are really lovely and friendly! If you like hookah then you can go up... More

We flew in from Oz for our first visit to New York. We were unsure where to stay but found the perfect location. The Sanctuary Hotel was an excellent choice. We had a King Room which was big & comfortable and the staff where amazingly friendly & helpful and the Roof Top bar/restaurant was a great escape. Location within NYC... 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.
