My girlfriend and I thought the Sanctuary Hotel was excellent. As soon as you step inside you feel a million miles away from all of the hustle bustle of New York City and are transported to a cool, calm and relaxing atmosphere. The staff were fabulous and made us feel extremely welcome for the entire duration of our stay. The location was perfect for us, right next to Times Square but just tucked away so you can escape the crowds. The subway is a one minute walk away which made getting around NYC really easy. The rooms are a good size. I was concerned after reading reviews on here that the room was going to be tiny but it was perfect for us. The shower was huge!
My only minor comments would be the breakfast. There was only 1x 4-slice toaster and this meant a queue every morning for toast & bagels. Also, there is no room in the breakfast serving area to place things i.e. the lid for the scrambled egg. You have to hold it in one hand while trying to serve yourself a portion. It just wasn't very well thought out.
Overall though, I'd be happy to recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to explore NYC.
