We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It is in a brilliant location and a short distance to Grand Central Station. A few minutes walk to the Rockefeller Centre or Empire State Building. The hotel is very clean and all staff were welcoming and helpful. The rooms were well equipped and cleaned every day. There is a business centre on the second floor and they will hold luggage and arrange airport transfers. There were a few small areas of tired decoration in our room but nothing that could not be ignored given how brilliant the location is.

Just love this hotel in East midtown Manhattan. I have stayed here a number of times. Service is beyond friendly. Rooms are very comfortable. Free WiFi. Great TV. Perfect location. Doorman would always get me a taxi. Near a Duane Read for whatever you might need. Room has a coffee maker, microwave and fridge. Also nice robes and great pants presser. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Hotel was fine after checking 3 rooms. First room was directly across from the elevator, next room was way down the hall and faced a wall, third room was fine. Small lobby, no real services - no mini bar, room service. WiFi was good. Guy at reception was helpful, people were nice Location was pretty good, midtown East. I guess for $300, this is all you can expect in NYC.

Room tip: check room location before accepting

We visited New York for a college tour and through in a few days for fun. The San Carlos was perfect for our needs. Very affordable and well located we were a cab ride away from both the college tour at Columbia, Yankee Stadium, shopping and sightseeing.

This will be easy.
Having been to NYC many times either on holiday or as a commercial ship's captain, I have stayed in many of the good hotels in the City. On this occasion with my wife.... this is our first time at the San Carlos Hotel.
From the moment we walked through the doors there is an air of peace about the foyer. We were met by Doorman (Andy) with our cases and Gabriel on the desk and made to feel very welcome.
The front desk or any of the Doormen will help you with advice on how to get around or whatever.
There are some very good restaurants close by within minutes walking
This is not your typical large chain hotel buzzing with people and things going on, but a really delightful hotel offering a complete relief from the non-stop buzz of the City.
We had a Junior Suite on the 5th Floor which was generous in size and very comfortable.
We were privileged to meet Janet Materi handing Sales and Marketing and also the owner of the hotel, something that will never happen in most NYC hotel.
Breakfast is available in an adjoining part of the hotel which was excellent.
The lifts (2) are good.
The hotel is very well positioned for most of the tourist locations be it the Rockefeller Centre, 5th Avenue, Times Square and the subway.
On arriving in NY, go to the subway station close by and buy a MetroCard for the time you will be in the City This can then be used in both buses and the subway. Whilkst on a bus pick up a route map. Please note, if you ride a bendy-bus (as we call them in England), you must insert your MetroCard in the blue box beside the bus stop and get a receipt before boarding the bus. If it is a normal bus, swipe your card at the driver's position.
Simply a great hotel to stay. You would be missing a real trick not to stay here

Room tip: Take a Junior Suite
