We chose the San Carlos based on reviews in T.A and were not disappointed. Location was great, rooms large in good condition, well appointed and staff friendly and helpful. San Carlos was a great location for all the mid and uptown events and attractions we had planned. Close enough for an easy walk to Times Square but far enough away...

My husband and I stayed here with our good friend while visiting NYC for a Broadway show. The San Carlos hotel is conveniently located to many of the common tourist sites, including Times Square and the Theater District. We were able to walk to most of the places we wanted to see while in NYC. The hotel staff was so...

I stay in the city each quarter for work and we seem to try a different hotel each time. The San Carlos Hotel had the best rate this time, in the midst of the craziness with the holiday time, and it was a nice place to stay. My initial impression was not positive. I stopped by early to see if...

I stayed this time only one night at the San Carlos hotel. But it was already my fourth stay here. So it starts with a greeted curb side by the doorman who took my suitcase right to the front desk. The check in at the front desk staff was polite and professional but a little bit "cold" . The room...

I LOVE the San Carlos! The rooms are exceptionally clean with great amenities. The staff was wonderfully attentive without being overbearing. They went the extra mile to make me feel comfortable and give "idiot proof" directions to this tourist. The quiet elegance of the hotel was comforting against the hustle and bustle of the city!

We stayed at the San Carlos for 5 days over Thanksgiving and it was just perfect. The rooms are large for NYC standards. Very easy access, convenient location, clean and confortable rooms. No luxuries but well kept.

My husband, college-age son and I stayed in the executive suite at the San Carlos hotel for the second time this year. We're ex NYers and appreciate the convenience of the location. The executive suite is perfectly designed for 2 or 3 people. It features a pullout sofa in a sitting area as well as a small kitchen. So handy....

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.
