I visited this hotel in February. the room was warm and this was a very good point for this season. Everything was ok and in the future i will visit it again. The location is the best, very closed to time square. Very good value for money

We stayed here twice simply because of the location. It is 30 seconds from times square which is excellent. The price is cheap but the rooms reflect the price. It is warm and quiet and close so couldn't argue. It's run down. The house keeping is terrible but it really doesn't matter. It's a place to rest and nothing more.... More

Oke, so there are old & dirty rooms. But honestly great location and price. Directly at timessquare. ( great to hang out during night time) You pay for what you get.. If you are used to hostels, you Will have no problems staying here. However, Don't go here if you expect cleanliness and luxury.

Yes, when location is all you need this hotel is for you. Forget all the other features, you wont think in that because Carter Hotel is in the center of everything, the best stores and restaurants are one or two blocks away.

I was not thrilled with the pote d'creme. It was a bit on the salty side, and was tepid by the time it was delivered. The kids, however, loved the surprises the staff left and playing "Law & Orde: SVU".

Location, location, location. Don't be disturbed by the lobby, you'll quickly come to realize it is a part of the charm but it may make you a little nervous before you get to your room, ha ha. The rooms are worn but more than adequate if you are in NY to see NY. If you want to know exactly what... More

Very basic but very clean and spacious. Fantastic location and would certainly return. Bathroom was very big and kept clean. Lobby has lots of information and staff very helpful. Times square is yards away but the hotel remains quiet on a night.

Its been eons since I've been at this location but I didn't have a problem that I could think of the staff I remember was pretty decent at the time. Id most likely go back hoping to see any upgrades. The only real complaint that I have is the there really wasn't much of a view to look out from... 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.
