“Another excellent stay t this wonderful hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2012

I just finished my fifth stay at this best kept secret in Manhattan on April 17-20 and the best thing about this hotel is the friendliness of is staff fom the concierge to the bellman (Bobby) to the check-in staff. They are all amazingly kind and well-informed. The rooms are very spacious with modern furnishings. The beds are ver comfortable. The heat and A/C work very well. The television reception on some of the stations in my room (#1009) could have been better bu this small factor is not severe enough to lower my rating of the hotel. It is in every possible way five star. The continental breakfast provided every morning with the cost of your room is fine. Best of all the location is excellent for every type of sightseeing you could want to do in Manhattan.

Overall a great place to stay, away from the crowd especially at Times Square. Highly recommended for families traveling with children. The only thing lacking is a self service laundry facility.

The first time I stayed at San Carlos Hotel I was 7 years old, in December 1971, almost 41 years ago. Since then I've stayed there for many times. After a complete renovation, it reopened still better, that's why every time I am in NY, my choice is the San Carlos Hotel, a lovely place, with nice and confortable rooms, warm staff and perfect location.

We just spent a few days in New York staying at the San Carlos. From the moment of arrival you could tell this was something different, something out of the ordinary.

The receptionist greeted us warmly, took time to ask about our trip and explain the facilities of the hotel. Now this could have been a one off, an employee on a good day, however we found all the staff to be uniformly friendly, informative and very helpful.

We had booked a one room suite and were pleased with the size of the room and its practicality. It comes with a microwave, mini fridge and a well proportioned living room. The room also had a good safe, free wifi and two large TV's. The hotel also provides a 'computer suite' on the second floor for guests consisting of 6 PC's and 2 Printers.

The hotel is in an excellent location for exploring the city with 2 subway stops within a couple of blacks, plenty of good restaurants in the area and it is within walking distance of Rockefeller and Central Parks.

Would definitely stay here on the next visit to New York.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the higher floors toward the back of the hotel.

After spending a night in another "big hotel", left there, came here. The staff was wonderful and most accomodating to our needs. I've stayed here 4 times now, and will never stay anywhere else. The front desk staff is phenominal to my wife and I. The place is roomy, quiet, and has all those amenities that make a great hotel. Do yourself a favor, stay here and enjoy NYC.
