Stayed here on a work trip and had to wait a bit to get checked in b/c my room wasn't ready. However, because of the wait, I was upgraded to a suite. Although the suite was a waste due to the shortness/style of the trip, it was still a very nice gesture. It was a great location. I didn't try... More

What a fantastic hotel offering great value in a convenient location, I could find no fault. I was able to book in earlier than quoted and for me it offered that little bit more than I was expecting. Two dressing gowns, Molten Brown products in bathroom, an umbrella, free tea/coffee 24hrs etc etc. Unfortunately I did have to report a... More

My husband & I just returned from a 3 night stay at the Carlton. We booked based on it being a Marriott property and being in the area we wanted. We were upgraded to an executive King room and it was absolutely perfect. We were on the 4th floor so we did hear a little street noise, but not too... More

Whenever I come to NYC, this is my go-to place. It's right between Empire State area and Flatiron, so it's really convenient. The rooms are nice, the beds are comfy, and the staff is really nice. By now, I've stayed here so many times that they know me on a first name basis. If and when you do stay here,... More

I only stayed one night following a business trip, but was pleased with what I experienced. The lobby of the hotel is pretty impressive and check in was very quick. From the elevators to my room, it was a very long walk down a windy corridor. If distance is a problem then you might want to request something a little... More

My wife and I stayed here for a weekend trip. The lobby is beautiful and we were able to check in early. I knew the room was going to be small from other reviews and the square footage is listed in the room description. It had a cool look to it, was decorated nicely and for the two of us... More

Myself, my fiancee and two friends stayed here between 25/03/14 and 01/05/14. The hotel itself is brilliant, rooms aren't huge but the amount of time you spend in a room in nyc means that's no issue at all. Bathroom and shower excellent and bed unbelievably comfortable. Coffee downstairs is a bit ropey on first taste but it's free and that's... More

This is my fourth or fifth stay here and each time it's a little worse. The hotel is all facade and no substance. The rooms are no better than the Wyndham down the street. Each stay, my room gets smaller and smaller. The door hits the bed when you open it. You'd thinks they would value repeat business travelers, but... More

fundog, Thank you for returning to the Carlton and for writing this review. We are fortunate at the Carlton to enjoy high occupancy on several days so at times we are unable to recognize loyalty by offering upgrades. We certainly do recognize loyal guests and where possible we do endeavour to upgrade when available. We hope to welcome you again... More

I had a very pleasant stay for business for 2 nights. The corner room I had facing Madison and 29th St was very spacious for NY, with the amenities excellent (good work space, large wardrobe, reasonable bathroom). The restaurant was very nice and both bars were good. The service was friendly and efficient.

We love the location of this little gem hotel. Excellent front desk staff, shout out to Glenn who does everything to make sure guest are happy. Frankly, rooms are a little dated, but bed is comfortable. Bathrooms (showers and bathtubs particularly) could use an update. Free excellent wi fi throughout the building. Also, Millesime is a really nice restaurant. Monday... More
