For an immaculate and sizeable (by Manhattan standards) room, the Hotel San Carlos does just the trick.

Located on a quieter stretch of 50th Street in Midtown East, the hotel has a residential ambiance similar to an upscale New York City apartment building. The marble lobby is intimate, and the friendly employees at the reception desk will likely greet you by your first name. A hearty continental breakfast and in-room Wi-Fi are provided at no extra charge.

Unlike the many boutique properties in NYC, the décor here is slightly dated, but the big rooms make up for the lacking hip factor. The least expensive room is the Deluxe with roughly 300 square feet (most NYC rooms are under 200) and comes with bonus touches like a granite wet bar with a microwave and mini-fridge. A great option for families, the junior and one-bedroom suites come with a pull-out sofa bed, large wet bar and a small dining area for morning Cheerios. Double-glazed windows cancel out street noise.

The hotel is surrounded by subway lines: The 6 train stop is one block from the hotel, and the Lexington Avenue E and M train stop (which connects to JFK airport) is three blocks north. Walk to attractions like Rockefeller Center, the Museum of Modern Art and Grand Central Terminal in under 10 minutes.
