I was warmly welcomed by the staff, and was given superb service. The hotel is beautifully renovated and very clean. It has easy metro access, and has free wifi. The bar downstairs has excellent prices, and the noise level outside was very minimal.

Hotel is over 100 years old, on the smaller side, and beautifully refinished.Location is very good -- particularly because you can walk toward Third Ave to a number of nice restaurants of a wide variety that are quite good and not overpriced. Also can walk to the "Little Korea" area that has a number of fun restaurants, etc. Up the... More

My colleague and I were traveling to NYC for business. We checked in late after a hard day of travel. The front desk staff and general manager went out of their way to make us feel comfortable offering directions to good restaurants in the area. The hotel is a short walk to Union Square. The room was large and very... More

You feel posh entering the magnificent lobby. The staff was very helpful and they let me check in early and check my bags for the day after I checked out. The fitness center has free weights, machines and cardio equipment. The central location takes you away from the chaos of Times Square with the east side refinement. You are close... More

The Hotel is an older style hotel but the wireless was terrible and could not work at nights. Also, the rooms were well over $300 which was not worth the price. 3 stars for me (average). I rated it 3 stars since the hotel service was okay and no wireless.

We were travelling with our 2 adult children who dont mind to share room with us. Judging the size of the hotel rooms in Madison Ave area, we would be getting only 2 standard rooms of around 190 sq ft each. So we opted for the very large Empire State suite of this hotel (625 sq ft) with 2 double... More

This is an older property and while I really have no negative comments, there was nothing that stood out as above average. Clean, quite room, friendly staff, everything I needed and wanted. Right on Madison Avenue between 28th and 29th

The hotel is very chic yet inviting as you walk in, but what most impressed me was the friendly front desk staff. Very accommodating and pleasant. The rooms are larger than I expected from a Manhattan hotel and very well kept and clean. I had originally booked a standard two bedroom and they upgraded me to a suite which is... More

Stayed here with my wife as part of our 1 year anniversary holiday and it was great. Room was small but typical for NYC, had everything we needed. Concierge were great and planned our itinerary which made our trip so easy. Stay here for location, Darty.

Let me start by saying that I am a Marriott Gold member and generally I always have good experiences at their hotels. I was excited to stay at Carlton and there were some nice things about the hotel. First, the lobby is fairly large and open (for NYC) and the staff was nice. I was checked in quickly and headed... More

Dear Danielle B We very much appreciate the positive words you wrote in your review and regret some of the concerns you mention. I do want to assure you that the room you occupied during your stay was an Executive King and that the bed is a King size bed. There are some variations in the layouts of some rooms... More
