The Sanctuary was excellent in every respect. From the minute we arrived it felt like the haven it is intended to be. Perfectly located just moments from Times Square, once inside the hotel is calm, welcoming and relaxing. Every member of staff was unfailingly helpful and friendly, going out of his or her way to accommodate us. We had early access to our room, which was comfortable and spotlessly clean with a great bed. I loved the decor as well but that's personal taste.
We were there over New Year so the staff fully prepped us about the street restrictions (and recommended that we steered well clear of the Times Square area after about midday). They also helped us enormously by letting us store our luggage after we had checked out until 4am the next morning when we had to catch our bus.
The only fault we could think of was that breakfast could have had a few more healthy options (it was mostly bread/bagels). A small point though, as otherwise our stay was fantastic.
In a city like New York the Sanctuary probably doesn't qualify as a luxury hotel but we had an incredibly fun, completely stress free stay there, at a price which was significantly lower than all of the comparable hotels in New York. Highly recommended.
