“Great NYC Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2013

Very enjoyable experience. The level of service was excellent from everyone we encountered. The doorman, the front desk, the concierge, the luggage service - everyone gave us 100% of their attention and made us feel like their most important guest. The service was not over the top of too much in your face, it was there when we needed it and gave us space when we did not need any assistance.

Room Tip: Rooms are small, so know that going in. We only spent time in our room for sleep and showers. Book t...

Pleasant hotel but with dark atmosphere

positive: pleasant staff, great location near to time square, wifi

negative : classical room are without window view, hotel with dark atmosphere, tv choice (channels) are limited for movies may be due to pay tv

Be very careful when you book on booking.com some reservation are non-refundable at all ...

A girlfriend and I travel to NYC each year and this is the second year we have stayed at The Sanctuary Hotel. We love it here...such a great location but off a side street so you aren't in the middle of all the commotion. Our room this time was a bit dark because it was on the back side of the hotel but the first time we had a street view and it was very nice! I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to NYC.

I traveled to New York for the first time with my girlfriend (in our mid 20s). It was a special occasion for us and we were treated like royalty from the off. All staff (Jacob in particular!) were fantastic and incredibly helpful. We were upgraded to a Deluxe King with a room on the front of the hotel. Room size was great and Jacob had helped me arrange surprises for my girlfriend throughout our stay (quite literally Service Tailored to Any Request is what they do!!). Room was very clean and although there was a little noise from the street this did not bother us at all! He (Jacob) also arranged tickets to a baseball game as well as various evening events including dinner, comedy nights and jazz. Breakfast in the mornings was simple but tasty, and just what you need before you hit the city! Never experienced service from a concierge like this in the past and would be surprised if it was beaten in the future! Thank you to all at the Sanctuary Hotel, we'll be back!

Room Tip: Try and get a room on the front of the hotel. If you are staying for longer than 3.4 days, make sur...

This was a great hotel experience! Room was clean and spacious with a nice modern bathroom. I thought the shower was amazing!. The rooftop bar is also a fantastic amenity worth checking out even if you are not staying at the hotel. I would definitely go back just wish they had a reward program.

We are so glad to hear that you had such a wonderful experience at the Sanctuary Hotel.

Many guest such as yourself enjoy the rainfall shower-heads in our pee-a-boo showers. We would certainly love for you to come back for another great stay.

We stayed for four nights in late April. The hotel is a great place to stay and in a great location.
We had a good room on the 6th floor, no real view other than the roof of the Church next door but plenty of natural light. The room was comfortable and well fitted out, but a bit small as are most New York rooms.
Reception seems dark when you walk in off the Street but it's fine once you're accustomed to it.

Breakfast was fine, but nothing special, and they always seemed to be running out of crockery - the staff were constantly topping up what was there but it seemed like having a few more bowls and plates to start with would help a lot.

You need to check your bill at check-out. Someone had charged food and drinks to our room at the Haven Bar and it took a long time to get it sorted. I don't think they ever found the actual dockets and guessed at which ones weren't ours. I'm pretty sure the guy on the desk had forgotten about us until we pressed him on a solution.
