This is an excellent boutique hotel, in a great location, with a nice continental breakfast, the staff was very friendly and helpful. I would give a 5 star except that I prefer a firm mattress, and although I could tell the mattress was a good mattress, it was not firm enough for my liking. Other than that, an excellent hotel.

The location was great, just blocks away from 5th ave and/or Rockefeller. The staff were extremely nice. The doorman were attentive and polite. The rooms were very spacious for New York standards. Plenty of closet space and complimentary robes! Free wifi is definitely a bonus. Their free continental breakfast was okay but good for them for even offering that to...

In New York City, it's often hard to find a spacious room that's extremely clean and quiet. The San Carlos is a terrific hotel for business travel when you're looking for a really good night's sleep. There are no real frills and the decor is quite simple, but it was a great home-base for meetings in the city. The king...

Spacious rooms,lovely comfortable beds and quiet for New York - well soundproofed compared to other hotels. The staff were amazing - gracious, helpful and efficient.

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.
