San Carlos Hotel, New York
Not a 4 star experience
Pros: Good location. Great housekeeping staff. Comfortable beds. Clean. Cons: Asked for a high floor, got 2nd floor with a view of a brick wall and service alley. Bellman was MIA when we arrived. Mini bar wasn't working so all those items had been put in the fridge, taking up 2/3 the space. Room was directly across from the hallway entrance door and elevator, so there was door slamming and elevator mechanism noise all night. No advertised free breakfast or coffee. Cable was out entire time. Desk staff didn't seem to care about the problems and offered nothing to make up for it. It's an ok hotel, but not the level of service expected from a 4 star property. With all the options available in the area and in the same price range, I'll stay elsewhere next time.

Fantastic place to stay and wheelchair accessible!
There is so much that is amazing about this hotel that we will absolutely choose to stay here for future NYC trips. The location is convenient and super safe -- we walked to a super late dinner several blocks away at midnight! The staff are superb. You will likely not find nicer people anywhere in the city -- and I am not just talking about hotel staff -- these are some genuinely nice, helpful, pleasant people! The hotel itself is beautiful and well-kept. There are two elevators, so getting to/from your room or any of the hotel amenities is quick. The only things that are not perfect are that the walls/ceilings/floors are thin so you can hear noise from all your neighbors and the mattresses seem old and lumpy which made for some difficulty sleeping. However, even with those issues, we had everything we needed. Gym was well-kept with staff regularly checking on it. Business center was open and accessible with printers. Building is also fully wheelchair-accessible, a rare find in NYC!

Great NYC Hotel!

San Carlos Hotel, New York
This place was wonderful. I can't wait to go back. The service was great, the room was big, I was very happy with this booking. The one drawback if I had to find a problem would be three is construction next door and as a first time guest to this hotel, the construction was blocking my view and the hotel wasn't as clearly noticeable to me. Aside from that, I loved the stay and plan to go back soon.
