Location is good. Price is fair. Room is dated but ok. Room was clean. Staff was not very freindly. Food was ok but prices seemed too high for quality. Outlets were sagging and would not hold plugs- very cheap and simple fix for hotel. Average at best.

Room was terrible , disgusting I would say. They were renewing the whole floor, hated... More

This hotel was our only go-to on my first visits to NYC. Their service is poor due to the fact that they have very little staffing. You have to go in line to get your room cleaned in case you mention you want housekeeping, because it's not something they offer on a daily basis. During one of our visits my... More

Firstly, this hotel is located right in the heart of Times Square and to us it was perfect as well as the price. There is no doubt that the hotel needs a lot of improvement, but if your in New York to sleep, then please don't pick this place as the rooms are not up to date in terms of... More

The Carter is in a good location for exploring Manhattan. The hotel has some classic architecture and features which is different from many NY hotels I've stayed in. The rooms also had some classic features especially the bathrooms. Although the room I stayed could do with a refurbishment. My main issue with the hotel was the flimsy walls and the... More

I visited this hotel in February. the room was warm and this was a very good point for this season. Everything was ok and in the future i will visit it again. The location is the best, very closed to time square. Very good value for money

We stayed here twice simply because of the location. It is 30 seconds from times square which is excellent. The price is cheap but the rooms reflect the price. It is warm and quiet and close so couldn't argue. It's run down. The house keeping is terrible but it really doesn't matter. It's a place to rest and nothing more.... More

Oke, so there are old & dirty rooms. But honestly great location and price. Directly at timessquare. ( great to hang out during night time) You pay for what you get.. If you are used to hostels, you Will have no problems staying here. However, Don't go here if you expect cleanliness and luxury.

Yes, when location is all you need this hotel is for you. Forget all the other features, you wont think in that because Carter Hotel is in the center of everything, the best stores and restaurants are one or two blocks away.

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.
