“LOVED IT!!!!!!!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

The Sanctuary Hotel is a wonderful hotel, situated in the absolute most perfect location. It is a quaint hotel with a special, welcoming charm. The front desk was very kind and extremely helpful. The upstairs terrace and lounge is a wonderful touch. The morning breakfast was exactely what anyone could ask for. It had all the morning staple foods with a few extra sweets. I highly recommend this hotel to everyone looking to stay close to Times Square and walking distance to many places. I can't wait to go back.

Absolutely loved more or less everything about this hotel. The decor was smart and interesting with a laquer red and black Eastern temple vibe. The room was spacious for New York and had everything you might need including an iron and board. The decor continued the restful red and black theme with mock leather tiles in the shower area - very chic. We were a bit disappointed however by the design concept behind the rooftop bar which had a rather strange skiing chalet theme. We would have preferred something more urban and glitzy, but the service was excellent and they got the food offer right - loved the tacos!

We loved the location which is near the Rockefeller Center and 5th Avenue and yet not far from Times Square. You really feel at the heart of things.

What is outstanding about this hotel is the staff, who are just delightful. They are so friendly and helpful they give your spirits a lift every time you walk in and out of Reception. The system of S.T.A.R. managers who will advise you about outings and restaurants and will book things for you is really special. We felt that Jacob in particular was very perceptive in intuiting what sort of things we would like and his input really made our holiday. Would not hesitate to go back to this hotel, in fact we didn't want to leave.

Just returned home from spending 5 nights at the gorgeous Sanctuary Hotel. Could not have asked for anything more. The staff, the room, the location - everything was perfect. Would most definitely recommend it as great hotel to stay in and would love to come back one day. The Sanctuary Hotel deserves to be #1 on trip advisor!

We had a superb experience at Sanctuary Hotel, just a block off Broadway but quiet and a serene place to relax after sightseeing and eating and drinking and going to theaters (just a short walk away). The staff was incredible friendly and helpful, including the folks up at the rooftop bar, Haven. Great breakfast too. We'll be back. Definitely!

Room Tip: Rooms are small but you don't go to New York to mess around in your hotel room, now do you? Ever...

Good Hotel, Staff we're perfect and very hard working but rooms are smaller than expected and very noisy due to traffic, could do with more noise prevention from windows.
Location perfect for 5th Ave and Times Square, walkable to Central Park.

Room Tip: At back of hotel to avoid late night traffic noise

My 16 year old daughter and I have been to New York before but the staff at this hotel is the reason our trip was so enjoyable. The hotel itself is very nice. Room a bit small but the design is very efficient. It includes a continental breakfast which was adequate for us. It saved money and time. Free wifi is great as well.

The staff is so knowledgable about the city. They can give you exact directions and ideas on where to visit. If you need a suggestion on restaurants they are the experts and can get you a reservation. They were always available for questions and went out if their way for your needs.

The location was perfect. Near to Times Square but without the noise. It was very quiet.

When we get a chance to return to NYC this will be our hotel of choice

Thank you to all the staff and especially Jacob, Jimmy, and Brandon
