I can not recommend the Sanctuary enough! What a wonderful place.
Our flight was delayed so we arrived at the Sanctuary 2 hours after we were expected and received such a warm welcome. We were checked in within 2-3 minutes and shown to our room. Our bags were brought up within 5 minutes and we were sat in the roof top bar within 10 minutes!
We received a lovely welcome letter on arrival (we were on honeymoon) saying that the hotel had a bottle of Cava on ice for whenever we wanted it - we arranged this for our 4th (and last) night, to be drunk in the roof top bar.
Every single member of staff was fantastic - the doormen always smiled, receptionist greeted you, the bar staff were so cool and took the time out to talk to you and find out how your day was. But...the biggest shout out goes to Brandon! He is awesome. I contacted Brandon about 2 months before our honeymoon to ask for some help booking surprise tickets for the Mets game, he helped me book these and gave us the best 3 day itinerary ever - we fit so much into our trip and we wouldn't have done this without his help! On our first morning we met Brandon and he gave us maps, advice and general information. He also recommended two fantastic restaurants and made reservations. I honestly can not say enough good things about him! Brandon, you made our visit to NYC so cool!
Our room was on the 7th floor and overlooked the road. There is some noise from the street (mainly cars beeping) but good luck finding somewhere in NYC that you can’t hear that! We heard absolutely no noise from the roof top bar! The rooms are comfortable and plenty big enough – after all, you aren’t there to laze around in your room. The bed is lush and the shower is really good.
Breakfast is great. a selection of cereal, pastries, juice, tea, coffee, toast, bagels etc. A fab way to start the day and kept us going until lunch time with no problems!
If we return to NYC then the Sanctuary would be our No.1 choice every time – you’d be crazy not to stay here.
P.S. the location is also spot on!!!
