It's a bit of the Strip in Times Square. Chic in a slightly off, Vegas sort of way. The staff were friendly upon arrival. Our room was small and clean and virtually windowless. The bed was comfortable and the room was exceptionally quiet compared to many others in NYC. Times Square is a few blocks away.

The restaurant upstairs is very popular. Staff service is great. It was my husband's birthday and we were upgraded to a king room on the third floor. Complimentary truffles which... More

I saw the Sanctuary on a TV show, where the hotels compete for the best experience. The Sanctuary has a great location, just steps from Times Square. I thought there would be an issue with noise but I was wrong. Our room was silent, very, very clean, and not a bad size for 4 ladies. The staff is so friendly... More

I happened upon this hotel from a search site and was excited to book after reading all the reviews. Staff was very helpful and friendly, the room was clean and comfy (yes, they are small, but it's NYC). The location is unbeatable.

My wife, daughter and I spent 3 nights at Sanctuary. It was our first trip to NYC. The hotel is perfectly located. It is close to the action of Times Square, Broadway, and only a very short walk to 5th Avenue. We found the hotel to be very accommodating. We were greeted by smiling, friendly staff members from the moment... More

Sanctuary hotel is ideal for a visit to NYC. It has all the amenities you need to get a good nights sleep after a day of visiting NY or shopping. The STAR concierge does everything to make your stay as comfortable as one could wish. The rooms are clean and the beds are good. The only thing that was difficult... More

This boutique hotel is aptly named - colours, lighting and music are all mellow and calming. This despite the hotel being steps to the fantastic frenzy of Broadway. Couldn't be better located for access to theatres, the MOMA, Central Park, shopping on 5th Avenue and so much more. The staff are exceptionally pleasant and helpful.. The hotel common areas and...

This hotel is gorgeous. Staff was over the top wonderful, from the front desk to the doorman. The restaurant, Tender was magnificent. Room was a little small, but wonderful decor. Location was perfect to theater and Times Square. Continental breakfast was fresh, clean, and very good. We would definitely stay here again!

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.
