The room was great - clean and well decorated. The bed was comfortable. Best part was the customer service. Brandon the concierge was super helpful in giving an explanation of the subway system, recommending restaurants, and general visitor information. The breakfast was good too. One downside was the fan in the room was sort of loud, but not too terrible... More

My daughter and I stayed for four nights and were made very welcome by the staff. Andrew and Jimmy, the consierge staff, helped us with places to go, information about the places we wanted to see and how to maximise our stay - they couldn’t have been more friendly or accommodating and we were really grateful for their time. Lovely... More

The room was gorgeous (small, but that's standard with NYC). The location was fantastic as well. The highlight of the hotel would be a toss up between the incredibly friendly and helpful staff, and the gorgeous rooftop bar. The doormen actually helped me figure out parking, when I parked across the street, before even knowing I was a guest of... More

Stayed for 7 nights at The Sanctuary and it was almost perfect. Great location, very helpful staff, good rooftop bar and comfortable room. The only thing that stops it getting 5 stars (which I give very rarely) was the air conditioning. It alternated between blasting out very cold air and getting too cold to failing to turn back on until... More

My wife injured her ankle and was on crutches, staff could not have been more helpful. Breakfast was great value and concierge service was outstanding. The room was comfortable and well equipped without intrusive noise despite the very busy location.

Our stay at the Sanctuary hotel was really great!! The room is very beautiful, pretty big and has a great bed. The bar and restaurant are amazing! But the best of all is the hotel staff. They give you a really warm welcome and make your holiday complete! We've travelled a lot, but we've never been treated so well. The... More

We enjoyed the quaintness of the hotel. Not a big, commercial property. Great location, central to everything - Broadway, Times Square, Central Park, 5th Avenue, Grand Central Terminal. Great staff - the twin Marc's are great! We loved them. The hotel décor is very modern. The rooftop is amazing. The bar and restaurant are fantastic. Everything couldn't have been better.

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.
