Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Tucked into a side street just one block from the hustle and bustle of Times Square, the Sanctuary Hotel is a welcoming oasis in the heart of New York City. Calming Buddhas guide guests through the dimly lit lobby to the property’s two restaurants -- Tender Lounge, an upscale sports bar, and the celeb-favorite, Haven Rooftop, offering creative cocktails and dazzling views of the city.

The hotel’s two towers -- including one exclusively dedicated to blackout rooms -- are lavishly decorated with rich chocolate leather, chandeliers, brass accents and marble counter tops. Open concept is king, as floor-to-ceiling drapes rather than doors separate the bedroom and bathroom space, offering an elegant solution to the small, but smartly designed space. All guests receive complimentary access to the nearby Equinox Sports Club. The spa-inspired rainfall showers in each room are a perfect reward after hitting the gym or a day of sightseeing.

Located in Manhattan’s Theater District, the luxury hotel is ideally situated for leisure and business travelers alike. Visitors can walk to Rockefeller Center, Central Park, Columbus Circle, NASDAQ and Fifth Avenue’s upscale shops. S.T.A.R. (Service Tailored to Any Request) Experience Managers at the concierge desk offer unparalleled service for all travel styles from detailed directions around the borough to sending hot tea up to visitors feeling under the weather far from home.

superb location. restaurants, bar and lounges great. ambient music superb. staff -especially Amber and Milana (sp?) were great. This review this isn't someone who works there (or a relative). I get to NYC about 1x/month and have stayed many places. i'll bring my wife with me next time I'm in NYC and we will stay there. I brought my daughter to check it out (she lives in NYC). she too thought that it was a really nice hotel.

Location and cleanliness

Great location, rooms are VERY small. Window in our room faced in, so there was no view at all. It's clean and romantic feeling, even worth the tiny room. Shower and sink are right next to the bed and look new but is again very clean.

We loved the location! Literally just steps away from TKTS and a metro stop. It was bitter cold when we visited so being close to Times Square and Broadway shows was great.
