Bobby, the bellman, was a wealth of information, assistance and provided such a personal experience! He was an absolute joy and seeing his smile made me smile. He takes great pride in his job and you can feel it. He definitely made our experience at San Carlos the best hotel experience we have ever had. Cheers Bobby 😊

Great location

San Carlos hotel is within walking distance of so many things. Great dine across the street for breakfast! Empire Steak house is also across the street for a great steak dinner and friendly staff. The hotel is clean and very attentive to guests! Loved every minute there!

Great hotel within walking distance to attractions

Pros: Comfortable beds and large room.
Cons: Breakfast. Limited on food choices and if you came a little later, the food and drinks needed to be replaced sooner.
Location: Many places to eat within a few blocks. Grocery store within a few blocks. Walked to Times Square within 12 min. time. Location was great.
Friendly and helpful staff. Great location. Hotel had many amenities. Price was great. Would recommend this hotel for everyone.

Wonderful Hotel!

This hotel was great! It was within walking distance of everything. I had wanted to stay in Times Square but with our family we wanted a 1 bedroom for more privacy for everyone. The room did not disappoint. There was construction noise but we were usually getting up in the mornings when it started so not an issue for us. What a great decision to stay here.

did not stay reservation canceled

This reservation was canceled over a month ago due to Delta changing the flight times. Travelocity was great about giving me a full refund for hotel and airfare when the time change did not work for my travel plans. My only complaint was when issuing the refund I was told it may take up to 8 weeks to for the credit to show up on my credit card. To me this time frame is unacceptable in this day of electronic transactions, there fore I will not be booking with Travelocity in the future. In actuality my account was credited in less than a week.

This was a great hotel that I would recommend to anyone. The location was central to everything. It was quiet and comfortable. Rooms were spacious, clean and the staff very attentive. There was seven people in my party and we all had a great experience.

Very comfortable and well located. Had a very pleasant stay. Their door man, Matthew went above and beyond to make sure our stay was wonderful. He gave us great tips, got us a cab during rush hour and was always pleasant and accommodating.

Walk to Ice skating, lego etc.. Parking not free but can get a discount voucher. Breakfast was nice but mostly sweet items. We were craving for something salty afterwards.
