This is the second time staying here at this cozy location. Staff are cheery and rooms are very spacious. WIFI and continental breakfast are included but give your self time for the breakfast. Seating is limited and many take advantage of the free breakfast. No valet parking and recommended discounted parking garage is on 53rd street. Doorman gladly provided location but not the discounted rate so I parked on 51st.

I just stayed for 15 days in this hotel, and everything was wonderful. Perfect for the price (you´re not going to find super luxury), but everything is super clean, comfortable, and spacious. I stayed in a two room bedroom with my two kids and we fit perfectly, small kitchenette, TWO cosets, two TVs. I think the best part was the staff, the people in the front desk, the bellmen, everyone... almost didn't feel like I was in NY!! the location is good, a block away from the subway. I hope this review helps you make up your mind to stay here...

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and will use San Marcos for future trips to the area.

The hotel is very well located in Midtown East with easy access to the subway.

The rooms are quite large (especially by NYC standards) and very well maintained.

Service is good and there is a complimentary breakfast which has good offerings.

Room Tip: Room 1104 is spacious and quiet.

This is our favorite NYC hotel. The rooms are a good size with a small kitchenette and are well appointed and spotless as is all of the hotel. The staff are friendly and make you feel like an old friend on arrival. There is a very nice complementary continental breakfast. There is no valet parking and the recommended lot is 2 (short) blocks away , but there is a special hotel rate of 30$ which is a remarkable bargain for the city. I love to recommend this hotel to friends because the feedback is always good.

Travelled in July 2014 with family of four. We had the two queens/standard room and the beds were excellent. The room was clean and very comfortable and the free morning breakfast was good - not extensive but fine. One complaint was how loud the air conditioner was, but I never asked to be moved since I assumed that they were the same in all the rooms. The rooms come with a fridge that was nice to use for sodas and waters. Overall I would say it was just as we expected - very nice and the staff was quite helpful. I asked for a quiet room, and we were in the back on the 7th floor, and it was very quiet. No street noise at all! If the AC had been quieter, I would have rated it 5 stars!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and the back was very quiet. Unfortunately the AC was quite loud.

I have just retuned from my NY vacation with my three kids. We spent 8 nights at the hotel San Carlos and could not have been happier with the service and location. Located a few blocks from everything interesting, the San Carlos provides a lot of the amenities needed for a perfect NY trip like free WI-FI, free breakfast (really plentiful), free business center, free umbrellas went it rains. They always had our rooms clean by 12:00 and their turndown service never failed. They are located in a safe and quiet part if town, so at night we did not have the loud noise of the streets or other guests. I highly recommend this hotel for families that want large and comfortable rooms, yet want to find a helpful and courteous staff and an elegant ambiance.
