We stayed at The Sanctuary Hotel last week on the occasion of a family 30th birthday. I can honestly say that it was a wonderful experience. I contacted the hotel to let them know of the birthday and we received a wonderful surprise of a room upgrade and a bottle of sparkling wine. In addition the concierge went above and... More

This is the second time I have stayed at this wonderful hotel with my mum and brother and we were so happy to re visit. The staff are friendly, the service impeccable and the hotel is stylish and modern. The room I shared with mum was upgraded to a double double and was so comfortable we didn't want leave! Haven...

Stayed at the Sanctuary for our 23rd anniversary and couldn't have been happier. The location was perfect for access to theatre district and Times Square. The building is beautiful and quirky (in a good way). Most impressive was the service. My wife and I bith work in the customer service inductry and they really get it right here. From the... More

I've stayed at Sanctuary several times now; it's incredibly comfortable, there are lots of helpful, friendly, well-dressed staff people; everything's up to date (including spa-quality shower); and it's quiet. You can get anywhere you want to go by subway -- all the trains are within short walking distance. Many terrific restaurants in the area (especially over on 8th, 9th, and... More

Location excellent for Times Square but none of the noise from there, room clean, staff excellent. Room fairly quiet for New York and a good size as we are in a deluxe king. We would defiantly stay here again and recommend this hotel. Had a drink in The Haven rooftop bar was nice to go to for a drink, didn't... More

I recently stayed at Sanctuary over a weekend. This is definitely not a cookie-cutter hotel. Given that, each person will have to decide whether this is the hotel for him or her. For me, I could not have been happier choosing it. The interior is dark, with funky touches. Here and there you will see quilted "leather" and a selection... More

Fabulous location a couple of steps from times square, subway stations, Broadway etc. Staff are friendly and helpful. Room is adequately big with a comfortable bed. Our room was quiet, hard to believe your so close to the busiest parts of nyc. Would recommend 👍👍

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.
