Stayed one night at this hotel over a weekend when the Sheraton Time Square would not extend my rate for one more night. So I went into their Internet lounge and booked The Sanctuary down the street. Upon arriving you are immediately taken by the delicious smell in the lobby like as if a scented candle burning, not overwhelming just pleasantly subtle, playing in the background. The decor was very modern yet grounded with dim lighting with accent down-lights on various striking East Indian style statues on either side of the lobby. Lots of colors with rich reds and other striking accent colors give this a hotel very intimate and lush feeling. Upon check-in received a complimentary upgrade to a King Room. The room was actually large for room in Mid-town/Times Square. Decorated modern yet earthy tones and fabrics the large leather headboard ran floor to ceiling and seemed to give the room some added texture. Shower and bathroom very clean and well appointed with high end fixtures. Just to be made aware glass enclosed shower and sink are open to bedroom with a heavy yet elegant black out curtain that slides across opening to provide full privacy for anyone taking a shower. Didn't get to go to Haven the rooftop lounge due to weather but we did walk to the roof during the day and spoke to one of the chefs who gave us a quick tour. Book this if your looking for an elegant hotel perfect for a couple on weekend getaway in NY and want to stay just about 100 ft off of Times Square. Highly Recommended!
