Great location, clean room big enough to accommodate my family of 6, courteous staff. I would definitely book this place again!

The friendliness and efficiency of the staff is outstanding… Always a great experience to stay here!

Convenient midtown location with very large suits for the price point. Perfect for visiting families who just want a large, clean rooms to retire to during their stay. The staff was very friendly, helpful and professional in all our interactions.

It was amazingly quiet. Didn't hear any street sounds which is most unusual for Manhattan . Room was bright and spacious.

The resort fee for a basic hotel with few amenities was annoying, but nice hotel with courteous and attentive staff, large rooms. We would definitely return.

We loved staying here and will return! The hotel is charming, a bit "older" not a sterile new place without decor. It was well appointed, the room was quiet, bed comfortable, staff great, and a good location!

Bice hotel. Big rooms. Extremely friendly staff. Bathrooms need to be upgraded. Small toilets, old shower tubs. No bathroom fan etc. but the hotel was really nice. Really enjoyed the 2nd floor seating area for some peace and quiet getaway. Had a pleasant experience at this hotel. Recommended. ✅

We came for a long weekend and sightseeing. The staff was outstanding! Friendly and clean property. Thought the rate was reasonable for a hotel so close to 5th Ave. (Just a few blocks). If we come back to NYC, we will revisit this gem! Thank you for a great stay!

Loved this place. Great and friendly staff. Room was super comfortable and location was perfect. Great for our family.

Lovely hotel, in the mid-50s on the East Side, and a very quick (< 10 minutes) ride to Penn Station on the E line. FYI If you're handicapped or elderly, however, the E line isn't very forgiving. Super convenient for all East Side activities, and for getting up to Queens (for the US Open, or decent food, or both). Slightly expensive, in some sense, for what you get - clean, efficient, and comfortable rooms with nothing to complain about, but not outright luxury, which you might expect at > 300$/night. However, I was bringing my Mom and wanted to take no risks, and its NYC during the US Open Finals, so there you go...

Hotel conveniently located with a very welcoming and friendly staff. Rooms are clean and comfortable. Unfortunately walls/connecting room doors are too thin and you can hear EVERYTHING the other room is doing/saying which makes it difficult if you want to sleep pass 7:30am. Room’s AC is a bit noisy and worn down and there is no mini-fridge in the room which is necessary in the hot summer days in NY to store beverages, also no courtesy water bottles

We had a wonderful stay at the San Carlos! We stayed in one bedroom king and were very happy. Very comfy beds too.

This was my children's first time to NYC visiting from CA and we couldn't of picked a better place, the location was just perfect. We stayed 3 nights here in a 2 bedroom suite with our family of 5(3 kids) plus their grandmom/my mom. The rooms were quite large, the beds were comfortable, even the pull out sofa. Our room had a microwave, mini refrigerator, a table to eat, a sitting area with desk, and a TV plus, another TV in the bedroom. We were gone most of the day sight seeing but we all feel The San Carlos Hotel was amazing. Nick the bellman was so friendly and helpful, he gave us some great tips of things to see in the city. The weather was a little chilly for mid/late April, light rain one day, but we hustled from place to place. The restaurant attached was very good as well. We all truly enjoyed our stay, it was such a wonderful experience. We would definitely stay here again or recommend it to others. Keep doing what your doing to this lovely older hotel.

Fantastic hotel great location great staff very accommodating

Spacious rooms in a great mid town location. Continental Breakfast was not good w low quality bread items. Breakfast should be improved to measure up to the rest of the hotel quality. Except for breakfast, hotel was fantastic with very nice and helpful staff.

This hotel is in a great location. It's charming, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Staff is welcoming, helpful, and very professional. The experience at the hotel made our overnight trip to NYC even better.

Both my wife and I had bug bites when we stayed for our Thanksgiving holiday. No kidding! We are both Physicians and woke up with bites.
