“Amazing”
Reviewed 3 April 2014

I stayed here as a surprise trip for my 21st! Hotel is in perfect location 2 minute walk to 5th avenue with all the shops!!! Close to subway which takes you to see all of New York! The staff were so friendly from the minute we arrived couldn't of done anymore! Carried our cases to our room for us and acknowledged us every time we walked by! Breakfast was done! Good selection from toast to pastries and cereal with fresh orange juice! Rooms were cleaned everyday and even got chocolates on our pillow on the evenings! Loved my trip and this hotel made it even better!! Highly recommend it for anyone coming to New York!

My first visit to NYC, and this hotel was wonderful. We were within walking distance to Times Square, Central Park and the Empire State Building. One of the few hotels to offer free breakfast. Your basic cereal, coffee, juice and bagels but good enough to get your day started and be on your way. Our room was very clean and the staff was super friendly.

Would definitely stay here again.

My family of 4 spent a week in NYC and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the San Carlos Hotel. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. We saved a lot of time and money on breakfast as it is included at the hotel. I can't say enough about the wonderful staff who bent over backwards to accommodate. We were allowed to check in early as we arrived at 10:30 a.m. and on our way back home, we were able to stay past check out as our flight didn't leave until late at night. Great location and within walking distance to many sights. Close to bus and train transportation. Thank you for making our first visit to the big apple a very pleasant and enjoyable experience. We highly recommend this hotel.

Our stay at the San Carlos could not have been better! From the moment we arrived, we received nothing less than first class service, greeting us by name, smooth, quick check-in (love the reception staff!), large, clean room, well- appointed bathroom and to our surprise, a basket filled with treats for our stay! (I had mentioned we were celebrating a birthday!- how kind and thoughtful!). Our beds were super comfy, the rooms were quiet and restful and the location couldn't be better! Down the street from the Waldorf Astoria and steps to the Metra station. We will be back- thank you to all who made our stay so great!

We travelled here with our 2 children in 2007 but have only reviewed this now and it was and has always been one of the best holidays we have had as a family.
We were in NY for a friends wedding which took place on Brooklyn Bridge....which was a beautiful location for such a special occasion.
We all loved the hotel and the room/suite was fantastic and was massive even for the four of us.
The breakfast had a great variety and the kids loved all that was offered.
Cant fault the hotel or our experience of NY, loved every minute and cant wait to go back one day.

We searched for a place to stay during our vacation to NYC. We were pleasantly surprised at how large the rooms were and how nice the staff was. We stayed in a one bedroom suite and compared to suites in Dallas, these were very roomy for New York. The location is great. Minutes from Grand Central, times square, and the subway. The staff was also very accommodating. We will be staying here in the future.

I only stayed in the city for a day, but the San Carlos' staff was so helpful in finding me a town car and offering great advice on obtaining broadway tickets! It's not too close to time square... About 10-20 blocks. The bell hop, Matthew, was the most helpful- he actually chased down a driver who could take me to JFK! All around, the best hotel I've stayed at in the USA!
