4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

The hotel was a lovely 3-4 star hotel with friendly staff, good sized rooms and really comfy beds and pillows. The breakfast was included but it was only a very limited continental breakfast so we ate elsewhere.

Lovely hotel, very friendly staff who looked after us well and helped with whatever queries we had. I did expect the room for 6 to be bigger but it was fine. Good location! Breakfast was just really bread and pastries and the coffee not so great. Be wary of laundry costs, I wanted a few items laundered but they dry... More

Great front desk, best value in midtown at $400 a night. Great place will go there again if its close to the conference I attended. They upgraded me to a suite, really nice all the way around. Crisp and clean, great water pressure in the shower.

The greeting was friendly every time. The rooms are clean, a good size and bathroom is fine. The free breakfast was good. Plenty of bread options, juices, yogurts etc. The restaurant wasn't the best but there are plenty of options nearby. We had a third floor bedroom at the back so had a brick wall to look at. What do... More

The hotel is located in a nice, safe location (only about 3 blocks from subway). The room was huge for New York City - a half bath and full bath, a little kitchenette with fridge. It was quiet and clean. Only drawbacks were the wallpaper was starting to coming off the wall in the bedroom and the Continental breakfast is... More

We were impressed with this hotel the moment we stepped in. We arrived early in the morning after an overnight flight from LA, tired and hungry. The check in time was 4 pm, but as we had big luggage with us, we decided to go and drop off our luggage at the hotel so we can go explore as soon... More

We traveled together with my wife and younger brother (so kinda family group). We wanted to book a room with a separate bedroom and after long search we decided to try San Carlos.

Booked this property thru Hotwire, arrived to find that our hotwire reservation didn't exist. After over 2 hours on hold with Hotwire with no help the front desk of the hotel (Evelyn Torro) found us accommodations. I can't review the hotel, or the room but I can review the people and they were amazing!!

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.
