HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

I've been on "hiatus" from TripAdvisor for some time. I've had several vacations/trips and stayed in many hotels, but they have been marginal or average, so I declined to review them via TripAdvisor. But our last short trip to New York changed that, as we stayed at the San Carlos Hotel. I'll take you from start to finish: Arrival inside...

Cozy, charming and very clean. The San Carlos offers a refuge after a hectic day in New York. One can walk everywhere and there are plenty of little restaurants and shops in the area . Very good value for money.

When visiting NYC I usually stay on the west side to be in Times Square and near the Broadway theaters.I bought a stay at the San Carlos at a charity auction and was rewarded beyond my wildest dreams.

I have been working with the San Carlos both personally and for business events for some time now. It's a great hotel for a great value but my favorite thing about it is the sense of hospitality they provide their guests. When you step in there is refreshing sense of class. The Penthouse is available to rent for events (corporate...

I have to review the San Carlos for the benefit of those searching g for the perfect NYV hotel. I booked probably 5 hotels (with cancellations possible) before I settled on San Carlos. We could not have been happier with our accommodations! The room we had slept 6 comfortably. A sleeper sofa in the living area was most comfortable, unlike...

It was nice to see the same faces working in the lobby each morning and evening as we came and went. The location was...

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood 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 heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the 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.
