After enduring a 13 hour Amtrak journey, delayed by more than 2 hours, we arrived tired and dazed a little before midnight having emailed ahead our late arrival. We were met outside the hotel and luggage unloaded. Check in was swift and friendly and on arrival in our room we were offered refreshment which we gladly accepted. The room was... More

Being a guest at the Sanctuary Hotel in NYC was a real treat! My friends and I were only in NYC for a little over 24 hours to celebrate milestone birthdays (turning 50 and 60) and wanted to make the most of our time while visiting the City. The hotel is beautiful in luxurious, rich colors with an Asian/Zen theme.... More

I travel a lot but this was my first time at The Sanctuary and I will definitely return when I come back to NY. STAR concierge bent over backwards for us throughout our whole stay and all the staff were exceptionally friendly. The hotel was a good standard and slap bang in the middle of Times Square but you couldn't... More

We just returned home from a weekend get away to NY for the first time. We picked the Sancturary hotel because of the price and location near times square and broadway shows. When we arrived the staff was very friendly and very accomadating for us. I would like to Thank Brandon, Steven, Christina, and other variouse doormen and bartenders on... More

Previously when we visited NYC we had stayed in a large chain hotel where we found the staff very unfriendly. What a difference to here, the staff could not do more to help in each department. Lovely foyer, dark and atmospheric! Rooms were small but expected for the city and also for what we paid. If you want to spend... More

Spent a lot of time reading reviews for this hotel and booked it based on these. This was my 5th time in New York and I must say I would not stay at the Sanctuary again . The location is excellent and staff couldn't have been more helpful....perhaps a little too in your face. The moment the doors opened we... More

We arrived in the wee small hours of a rainy October morning after a transatlantic flight and were greeted by the doorman with a big umbrella and an even bigger smile! This set the tone for our whole stay at this lovely hotel. To get the little niggles out of the way - the rooms are on the small side,... More

This hotel provides good services, is well located and our room (800) was very quite (no noise from outside, only a bit of elevator noise). Personnel is very nice and one bottle was offered to us to celebrate our anniversary. The atmosphere is very distinctive. The hotel provides wi-fi and breakfast (average standard, not amazing, but much better than nothing!).... More

My Friend and I stayed for 3 nights recently, after I had booked it as a surprise getaway for her birthday. From the minute we arrived till the minute we left the staff were outstanding. This is a beautiful hotel in a brilliant location and the room was very clean and comfortable. I would stay here again in a heart... More

This is a smaller hotel, and its rooms are based on the European hotel model, meaning they are very small. Even though the rooms are small, they are very well furnished. I'm just not crazy about small hotel rooms. The breakfast was a disappointment. Mainly bagels, rolls, juices and cereals, although there were also eggs. Would have been nice to... More
