Have stayed in this hotel 3 times now and will definitely be going back. I went this time with 3 girlfriends from Australia and we took a one bedroom suite. It had 2 Queen beds in the bedroom and a very comfortable sofa bed in the living room. We could have had a rollout bed too but they charge $US30pn... More

The location is very central - minutes from the subway, blocks from Central Park, Broadway, Times Sq & Grand Central. Its also surrounded by nice places to eat. The rooms are very spacious by NY standards and very well maintained and... More

Set in busiy midtown and near a construction site - our room was really quiet. A light breakfast and daily newspapers are included. The staff were helpful and friendly. We had a couple of minor issues on arrival and they were fixed instantly. Suites aren't huge but appropriate for the price and the room was thoroughly cleaned each day. There... More

A great hotel to spend a few days in Manhattan. Location wise, walking distance to Times Square and Broadway, while only minutes from shopping on Park avenue. The subway is very close to go up to Central Park in only a few stops and also direct to downtown for Staten Island ferry and the 9-11 memorial area, all worth the... More

We recently stayed for 5 nights and I cannot fault the hotel. We experienced a quick and friendly check in and our room was superb, spacious and clean. The breakfast is adequate and a good start to your day. I would highly recommend and we will return to the San Carlos when visiting New York in the future.

I was worried about staying in an order hotel in NY however, the San Carlos is a gem! Great location close to everything and the subway. There was 10 of us and having 4 rooms was perfect. The rooms were clean and comfortable, the staff was excellent and very friendly. We would stay again and again at the San Carlos... More

I stayed here with my husband for a week on our first trip to New York. I spent hours researching accommodation, wanting something that was good value for money and big enough, in a good location. San Carlos ticked all these boxes and we were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. The room was massive with a king sized bed (possibly... More

We stayed here on our recent family holiday to NYC. After much searching we decided on the San Carlos for its positive trip advisor comments and also the location. We were not disappointed with anything here. Staff were welcoming and helpful on arrival and throughout our stay. We stayed in a family suite which was perfect for 5 of us.... More

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.
