The Sanctuary actually surprised me with how close it was to time square. It's just a side street away from all of the sites and actions that the theater district offers. I had accidentally booked my dates wrong through Expedia and the staff called them and was able to correct the booking without any issues. The rooms are very small... More

From the minute we walked in - we were treated like the only guests at the Sanctuary. The staff quickly learned all of our names, greeted us every time we walked through the hotel. The rooms were great, quiet, and delightful. The staff found out it was my daughter's 15th birthday and set up a treat of lovely truffles and... More

A unique hotel conveniently located in midtown. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and pleasant. Room service was superb. This is obviously a hot spot for the young professional crowd and it seemed to be alive and vibrant. I enjoyed my stay immensely.

I spent 2 nights there. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. Check-in was fast. The room, although not very big, was very comfortable and clean. The whole hotel concept and design are fun. If you add the perfect location, between Rockefeller Center and Times Square, it is definitely a place I would recommend or go back to.

This hotel was great. It has a great location in the Theater district, steps away from Timesquare and a few blocks from the theatres. The bed is so comfortable and the room is very nicely decorated and trendy. The theme of the hotel is really cute, with an Asian theme in the foyer and a Moroccan theme on the rooftop... 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.
