Good hotel in the heart of Manhatten Close to Empire State building and 5th Avenue. Rooms are not big, in typical american style but noisy as windows are old and not noisy protected. .Beds are convenient. Lobby is historically looking made in Art Nuovo style. Breakfast is real american and very good.

Stayed for 2 nights in Dec.2012-Xmas shopping and show. Car service to Broadway was worth the splurge---$35 for three people in the rain! Later than evening Returning from downtown was impossible to get a taxi so depending on what you are planning to do it might be a bit of a walk.... Our room was quite small as others have...

Every year, my wife and two adult daughters travel to NYC the week-end after Thanksgiving. And as such, I am the responsible person that makes (and most of the times pays for) the hotel accommodations for these past 16 years. I never look forward to picking them up at the airport when they return from NYC because the ride home...

The hotel was so so to me. The staff wasn't the friendliest- some were really nice though. Nice comfy hallways leading to the rooms. Very small rooms, but maybe that's to be expected for a NYC hotel. You don't get a lot for your money here. Internet was about $13 for 15 minutes!!! With what you pay for one night,...

Easy valet service at drop off, horrible at pickup. Reasonably priced valet for NYC. Front desk was nice, quick check in but all my requests never happened (i.e. extra towels never came since we had 4 guests in the room, only 2 were in the room when we arrived). We requested a rollaway but it didn't fit anywhere in the...

Our stay at this property lived up to my expectations with regards to it being a lovely property with clean and comfortable rooms. An added bonus indeed, however, was how it exceeded our expectations due to the outstanding team of staff here. From management down the employees were top notch due to their professionalism and friendliness. We truly had the...

We had a wonderful stay for the Thanksgiving holiday. Loved that it was small and so conveniently located. Our room was beautiful, quiet and the bed was so comfortable it was hard to leave in the morning. We look forward to staying here again on our next visit!

This was our first time staying at the Carlton Hotel. First I want to acknowledge that every employee was very professional and helpful. We stayed in room 322 for 5 nights. The room was on the small side but very clean. The bathroom was pretty small with nice amenities and plenty of towels. The decor was decent and the bed...

The lobby is beautiful, as are the hallways. The rooms have modern decor, but falls short when you look at the details (wallpaper falling off in some areas, broken marble tiling). The hotel should've spent some of the money they did on the lobby/hallways instead on the rooms. My room was also facing a generator or fan on the rooftop...
