“Spacious rooms, good service”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

This is the second time I have stayed at this hotel and will use San Marcos for future trips to the area.

The hotel is very well located in Midtown East with easy access to the subway.

The rooms are quite large (especially by NYC standards) and very well maintained.

Service is good and there is a complimentary breakfast which has good offerings.

Room Tip: Room 1104 is spacious and quiet.

This is our favorite NYC hotel. The rooms are a good size with a small kitchenette and are well appointed and spotless as is all of the hotel. The staff are friendly and make you feel like an old friend on arrival. There is a very nice complementary continental breakfast. There is no valet parking and the recommended lot is 2 (short) blocks away , but there is a special hotel rate of 30$ which is a remarkable bargain for the city. I love to recommend this hotel to friends because the feedback is always good.

Travelled in July 2014 with family of four. We had the two queens/standard room and the beds were excellent. The room was clean and very comfortable and the free morning breakfast was good - not extensive but fine. One complaint was how loud the air conditioner was, but I never asked to be moved since I assumed that they were the same in all the rooms. The rooms come with a fridge that was nice to use for sodas and waters. Overall I would say it was just as we expected - very nice and the staff was quite helpful. I asked for a quiet room, and we were in the back on the 7th floor, and it was very quiet. No street noise at all! If the AC had been quieter, I would have rated it 5 stars!

Room Tip: We asked for a quiet room and the back was very quiet. Unfortunately the AC was quite loud.

I have just retuned from my NY vacation with my three kids. We spent 8 nights at the hotel San Carlos and could not have been happier with the service and location. Located a few blocks from everything interesting, the San Carlos provides a lot of the amenities needed for a perfect NY trip like free WI-FI, free breakfast (really plentiful), free business center, free umbrellas went it rains. They always had our rooms clean by 12:00 and their turndown service never failed. They are located in a safe and quiet part if town, so at night we did not have the loud noise of the streets or other guests. I highly recommend this hotel for families that want large and comfortable rooms, yet want to find a helpful and courteous staff and an elegant ambiance.

The entire staff at the San Carlos hotel were wonderful. We arrived around 10:00 pm and were shown to our room. Because our room was located right next to the elevator we requested another room and without hesitation they showed us two other rooms to choose from. We stayed in a suite which was extremely roomy. We were able to grab a late dinner at the small Indian restaurant next door, called the Mint which was delicious and they too were very accomodating considering they were closing at 11:00 am. The rooms were clean and serviced daily. The location is very good, quiet yet close enough to walk to many places. The only negative would be that their rooms could use some redecorating. Oh and the free continental breakfast was also wonderful! This was our second stay at the San Carlos Hotel and we would definitely recommend it and stay there again ourselves.

We stayed at the San Carlos for 3 days in June 2014, in a junior suite.
The hotel location is excellent, staff is great and courteous but the room has a weird smell of old and dirt and so was the room furniture like the sofa chairs. A small improvement on the rooms furniture is must..
