My wife and I have Just returned from the thanksgiving weekend break. We Knew nothing of the renovations, the bar being shut or the restaurant closed. When we queried this with the hotel reception the reponse a very blunt "well it's on our web site". The rooms were very tired and in definite need of updating. The smell outside the... More

We stayed for 5 nights in June. The hotel is very conveniently located, right in the center of Manhatten island, so if you like to discover things on Foot, this is ideal. Me and my wife enjoy walking so didn't catch a subway or taxi to see any of Manhatten, and over the course of the trip were able to... More

We were really reluctant about staying at the hotel due to the renovations but went ahead anyway. Check in was easy and we got upgraded to a Queen room from a standard. The room was a little dated with flakey paint on the walls and the furniture was quite worn but it was clean, plus the bed was comfortable. Only... More

My husband and I stayed two nights over the post Thanksgiving holiday. Over powering reek of urine outside the hotel. No to go coffee cups, broken furniture, non working mini bar fridge, tears in bathmat. Lots of employees standing around, but not doing anything. I've stayed here a couple of times in the last 2 years and this was the... More

We have stayed in a number of hotels in New York but this one beats them all so far. Location is brilliant - very central but quiet (for New York that is). The lobby and reception are very welcoming. All staff were happy, smiling, very helpful, attentive and chatty. Check in was quick and easy. We had a superior double... More

The pictures of this hotel look amazing, but those pictures are probably close to 10 years old. This hotel is in major need of renovation and have started the renovation, too, which they are pretty secretive. The restaurant, fitness center, and several other amenities were closed for renovation. We were also met by protesters, protesting the company doing the renovation.... More

The Carlton is a nice location - good restaurants and bars in the neighborhood and close to the subway. Lobby is nice and the staff was friendly and helpful.
