Late review but still worth mentioning that all the staff in this hotel made our first family visit to New York a lovely one. Great location as it is close to Grand Central Station and lots of restaurants around the block. Time square within walking distance. Will definitely come back to this hotel again.

Just a great experience. Huge rooms for NY. Excellent location. Friendliest staff. Breakfast a bit boring but lots of great restaurants in area. Walked to MOMA, St. Peter's, Rockefeller, and Central Park Zoo.

A quiet little gem in mid town. The hotel is conveniently located on E50th street between Lexington and 3rd. If you chose a room at the back of the hotel you will be amazed at how quiet it is. Not much of a view but who cares if you can get a nice quiet sleep. Many of the rooms have...

Spent a long weekend in New York and stayed at the San Carlos. For the price I would say this was a great choice. It is more moderately priced than many other NYC hotels, and the rooms are probably more spacious than most. However if you're looking for sleek, new, upscale you will be disappointed. The hotel is a bit...

Incredible price for a junior suite in a great location! Our family of five was wowed by the staff, services, location and comfort. Being greeted most mornings by Bobby, Yolanda and Gabrielle with smiles and humor made every day great. Beds were very comfortable with small kitchen perfect for bringing food in after a long day of touring the city....

My family had a lovely stay at this hotel for our overnight in NYC. We had a great rate for a junior suite, and the size of the room was incredible for NYC standards. Plenty of room for a couple and two little kids (who had an absolute blast.) The staff was so kind and accommodating, and the location cannot...

Hotel was as good as expected and reviewed by others. Externally it is unassuming but internally it is nicely decorated and has some quality features. Front desk staff were very polite and helpful and took the time to make you feel at home. We were on the 16th floor and the room was well laid out and had everything you...

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.
