3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

From my arrival, I was impressed by the friendliness and efficiency of the staff - not just one person but everyone I encountered. Unfortunately, the staff and location are this property's only good points. Only there one night (good bed) but the room design (and I had a larger room!) was dark, cramped and inefficient for a frequent traveler. The... More

Fabulous position and welcome. bedroom good but beds not made after 2nd night. Lighting could be better but again a brilliant position. A good choice with breakfast menu. All staff very helpful. I am always amazed that there are no coffee making facility in a hotel room.

PEOPLE STAYING AT THIS HOTEL DO NOT HAVE AN AREA CORDENED OFF FOR THEM IN THE ROOF TOP BAR AS EVERY NIGHT THERE IS A PRIVATE PARTY, WHO MAINLY DO NOT WANT HOTEL GUESTS UP THERE. IF YOU CAN GET IN IT WILL BE A MIRACLE. Went here in May with my mum, sisters and nieces for five nights, looking... More

The Sanctuary Hotel is very good for a short stay in New York City. The atmosphere was quaint, the room service was on point and the staff were very friendly and inviting. The staff was also very knowledgeable. i would defiantly recommend this hotel to a friend.

An excellent boutique hotel, with great amenities and a wonderful staff. The ambiance and feel was exactly what we were looking for. Close to Times Square and a few blocks from Central Park made for a great location. Would return again to be sure.

Rooms were small as expected for such a central location but had everything you need. Bed was comfortable, shower and toilet were modern and clean. We were on the 7th floor and could hear the very noisy roof bar every night. It didn’t keep us awake due to jetlag, but if you are a light sleeper you may wish to... More

I stayed at the Sanctuary for 5 days for work. I chose this hotel based on location, for it being company approved, and of course, the reviews from Trip Advisor. Overall: 4.5 Room: 4.5 > King Deluxe room, with nary a view of the courtyard, decent size for NYC, clean, chic decor Bathroom: 4 > Nice, good products, clean, but... More

My daughter and I stayed at this property while in town attending a ballroom competition. This was our first trip to NY. As she practiced for the event I ventured out to learn the lay of the land so that wen I picked her up I could guide her around. We were literally a street over from Times Square. We... More

On arrival to Sanctuary we were upgraded as it was my birthday. We had originally booked a queen and we had been upgraded to a deluxe queen which unfortunately was right above the bar, on the second floor and facing the front. It was very noisy and didn't get much sleep the first night. We were moved the next day... 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.
