Great spacious room for 2 adults and 2 children 10 and 6. Kids shared sofa bed. 1 bedroom was spacious clean and well maintained. Great location close to Central Park. Breakfast could do with an upgrade, pastries were terrible however we only needed yoghurt and toast which were available. Would definitely come back when the construction next door stops.

My first visit to New York and can highly recommend the San Carlos hotel. The location is perfect, the room was large and had every convenience you could want.

The hotel itself is really well located and easily accessible. Free wifi, very large rooms as well which are comfortable and so are the beds. The only thing is about the breakfast: the continental breakfast is included but is very poor really. For a 4 star hotel, you would expect a bit more.

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.
