This is a wonderful place for families or anyone wanting a New York accommodation larger than the postage-stamp rooms available at the hotel chains. The San Carlos is family owned and we even met the friendly owner himself in the lobby one morning. He went out of his way to ask if we were comfortable and well-cared for at his... More

Being a very frequent visitor to New York, my last visit was spent at the San Carlos. Overall, the stay was completely hassle-free. I travelled with two friends, staying in a room with a sofa bed in the separate living room. We found the whole property very clean and staff generally friendly (happy to suggest bars - very good ones,... More

We stayed in a 1-BR suite for one night when we came up to take our daughter to a broadway show. The hotel is very clean, and the rooms are a very good size (for NYC).

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.
