"The staff was great and the room (king suite) was spacious and nice to come back to after a long day in the city. The rooms were quiet and clean. The location is convenient (upper midtown east). We would definitely come back again."

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, mini-fridge and coffee/tea maker. A great option for families, the 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.

The suite room was awesome for our family of four! This is the largest room I've ever seen in Manhattan! Staff was gracious, polite and helpful!

Travelzoo forgot to let the hotel know that we needed a handicap room to accommodate an adult in a wheelchair. They apologized and called the hotel who was already figuring out a solution. We were impressed with the immediate response of both parties we were dealing with. You can't go wrong choosing this hotel!

Perfect location just a block from the Lexington Ave line but quiet and not far from the more neighborhoody parts of midtown. Staff was friendly and welcoming-if you’re looking for the opposite of the crazy Times Square experience (and a bigger, comfier room!) this is a great choice!
