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.

The hotel has a distinct charm and stylish sophistication offering a contemporary, yet elegant feel. The least expensive room is the Standard, with roughly 300 square feet (most NYC rooms are under 200) and bonus touches like a granite wet bar with a microwave, minifridge and coffee/tea maker. 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.

Staff. Until we checked out and were informed we didn’t get the better room they had for us. Although I inquired at check in if there was a better room.
Other Comments
Room was dark and dreary. When we opened the sofa bed we found it hadn’t been changed. We had to call housekeeping. Also we had to call for ice since there is no ice machine.

There was a mistake with my booking. When I checked in they couldn't find my reservations. They booked me June 17 instead of July 17 and charged me one night for no show. They remedied the mistake after I showed them a copy of my Travelzoo reservations.

This is a lovely hotel in a convenient location with spacious accommodations and extremely friendly staff. Parking is nearby at a good rate. We stayed as a family of 4, and we would definitely return here. Better value than the franchise hotel choices.
