Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 10, 2013

I was looking for a hotel for my sisters grauation present to NYC then I found the Sanctuary on Groupon (discount site) and I am so glad I did!!
Doormen were so welcoming and opened the doors for us, something I've never experienced!
The ambiance of the hotel made me feel at ease and so happy to know I pick a beautiful hotel!
The concierge had a room ready for us even though we arrived 3 hours prior to check-in.
The rooms were a good size for NYC with the decor and furniture being very chic.
The S.T.A.R guy was helpful and honest about what to experience in NYC for the short time we were there. He was so nice and knew what he was talking about!
The people made the experience for my sister and I, helping us with any concern or question we had.
They were amazing, and so is this hotel! I would recommend it for anyone, it was extraordinary!

this is the best hotel I've stayed at so far. The staff was super nice and helpful and always greeted you with a smile. The bed was very comfortable and the room was beautiful. If I am around the new York area again, this is were I will stay. They also had a rooftop bar that served very good coctails. The hotel is located right on times square.

If you are looking for a reasonably priced (New York) centrally located (mid-town) hip hotel this is for you. Designed for couples looking to enjoy the city that never sleeps. The staff are excellent and engaging. The rooms are compact but that's NY. We didn't spend much time in the rooms but the time we did was peaceful and comfortable. with time square 50 meters away and 5 subway lines not much further away NY beckons.
The roof top bar is good for a late night cocktail or an early evening cocktail. You can't really go wrong with the Sanctuary.

Very impressed with hotel. Continental breakfast was included. Bathroom in room was large and clearly had be recently upgraded. Room was the size you would expect for NYC in this price range. Rooftop terrace was great for a couple of evening drinks although I cannot comment on the food. I had a couple of Mojitos that were great. Although here was construction at night on the road out front, I did not hear a sound in the room. Staff was very excellent. There was always coffee, water and tea in the lobby. I would return.

Room Tip: Don't count on a view.

For those wanting a central location in the heart of NYC, this is the hotel to stay at. Times Square is at your doorstep whilst Fifth Av and Central Park are minutes away. The rooms were huge for NY and very comfortable. Only qualm would be other noisy guests but there's not much to be done there. Overall an excellent hotel and I highly recommend it.

A friend of ours got us a room at the Sanctuary as a wedding gift. It's located in a kind of no-man's land between Times Square and the Theatre District. Its best feature is probably its rooftop lounge/restaurant called Haven where we had tasty cocktails and satisfying dinners.

If there's any complaint it would be about the attire of the waitresses at Haven. They wear these embarrassingly tight sausage casings that would be better suited for a strip club in Toledo. Raunchy, not tasteful. And I'm sure they're not happy to be wearing them...
