“Pleasantly Suprised”
Reviewed 30 January 2012

Having booked 5 days at Hotel Carter last October, we were horrified to read the reviews on Trip Advisor. Well The Ritz Mayfair it is not. But then it doesn't pretend to be. The staff were helpful, the room was clean as were the sheets, and the shower was hot with clean towels. These were changed every two days. For a low cost budget hotel it was sensational, and brilliantly positioned. Don't always believe the bad stuff!! I'd go back.

Stayed October 2011, travelled with family

We stayed here 2 weeks before Christmas for one night. I am so happy it wasn't more! Although the location is good, very easy walking distance to Times Square and other attractions, the hotel basically needs to be torn down and remodeled. Old, smelly, beat up and any other terrible things you can think apply here. Uncomfortable bed, a bathroom door in the room that won't close and carpets I was afraid to walk aroun on in bare feet.

Run away!!

I am a high school teacher and my class had chosen the Carter Hotel. Unfortunatly was the hotel full of rats. When students returned to their rooms, rats where on the floor. In addition, the rats were eating food from the students' suitcase. Students also got many fleabits. We had booked a total of 12 rooms, and in 6 of the rooms were rats. The hotel is not recommended for anyone.

Forget all this crap you read on here slagging this hotel off, its absolute bull! Me and my partner stayed in this hotel from 22nd december 2011 until 2nd 2012 in a nice double room the number was room 1129. It was fabulous! The room was cleaned every 2 days with fresh bedding and towels and cleaned thoroughly our maid was fab. The hotel was in the best location about 20 feet from times square. The staff were excellent and extremely friendly. The hotel itself is lovely, with lots of character, we booked direct thru hotels website, we had the money for our hotel as quoted in our booking and when we checked in reception said the room was $150.00 dollors cheaper so we got given it back. Which was great as more spending money for us both. We stayed over christmas and new year and also my birthday and had a great time.i would say the only bad thing was there is a shop outside the hotel to your left which is rip off, dont bother even going in. But everything else fantastic, si dont believe all the crap you read in here about this hotel its great.thank you so much for a wonderful time at your hotel. Chris maloney and gary doran

Booked this blind for our first trip to New York. Location is superb, close at Times Square, great restuarants on 9th, Central Station, Chrysler Building etc.
Room basic but clean and money saved on accomodation could then be spent on holiday (Giants home match huge highlight).
If you are only going to use the room to crash then this is perfect, if you are more used to luxury service then stay well clear.
Staff were all very friendly and helpful.
