This is our second time staying at the San Carlos. We love it here. The location is very convenient for St. Patrick's Cathedral, Rockefeller Center, Grand Central Terminal, Bryant Park and many other highlights. It is very quiet, comfortable and welcoming.

Great location, attentive kind staff, comfortable room. Needed 2 queens to sleep comfortably and still had floor space for the family. Comfy beds. Clean room and bathroom. All things working as they should. The hotel is maybe old and a little dated, but to me it just looked classic and we loved our stay!

The location is great. Rooms can be updated, felt very old. There was a lot of dust in the room and fabrics. The bed and pillows were uncomfortable. Floor caret stained.

San Carlos is a hidden gem in NYC. A very quiet, clean boutique hotel with helpful, friendly staff. The beds are extremely comfortable, high end linen but the rooms are tired and in need of upgrading which we understand are planning to happen in the near future.

This hotel was a great surprise. We were up at the Essex House right on Central Park for a corporate event, but didn't want to pay the nightly charge for the remainder of our stay so we switched hotels to San Carlos. Better rooms! Friendlier staff! Better food nearby! I would definitely stay here again, might make it my "home" hotel because I travel to NYC a lot.

The San Carlos Hotel is a property located in a very convenient area of Midtown, within walking distance of major attractions such as St. Patrick's Cathedral, Grand Central terminal, MoMA, Rockefeller Ctr. 5th Ave, and more! The neighborhood is pleasant with plenty of tasty local eateries. The staff was friendly and helpful from the moment we checked in and willing to provide information. Although the facilities look recently remodeled, it is still apparent that it's an older property. This; however, does not take away from the experience because of the impeccably clean rooms. I strongly recommend and I would certainly stay there again. We appreciate Bobby's attentiveness and help throughout our six day stay!
