I really want to like this hotel. It is in a great location, one block outside of Times Square. Unfortunately, the rooms are the tiniest that I have stayed in while in New York City, and there is only a tiny window with no light. The redeeming qualities of this hotel are the rooftop bar, and good service from the people who work there. The hotel… Read more
I really want to like this hotel. It is in a great location, one block outside of Times Square. Unfortunately, the rooms are the tiniest that I have stayed in while in New York City, and there is only a tiny window with no light. The redeeming qualities of this hotel are the rooftop bar, and good service from the people who work there. The hotel itself has a very cool zen vibe, but it is a shame it is so dark and small. The bathroom is actually part of the room, with only a curtain to separate the bedroom from the bathroom. They do offer complimentary water downstairs during the day and complimentary coffee in the morning. Overall, despite the cute atmosphere, I would not recommend staying at this hotel. Read less

The hotel is acceptable and in good location for those who likes to be next to times square and the theater district, the room is small and noisy you can hear what is happening in the adjacent room, the breakfast was not good and not tasty

I loved my stay at the Sanctuary. If you want to be right in the heart of Midtown I can't imagine a better hotel at a better price. I was blown away by the luxury hotel feel when I walked into the lobby and was greeted so warmly by the reception staff - hot tea? yes please. hot towel? yes absolutely.

I loved my stay at the Sanctuary. If you want to be right in the heart of Midtown I can't imagine a better hotel at a better price. I was blown away by the luxury hotel feel when I walked into the lobby and was greeted so warmly by the reception staff - hot tea? yes please. hot towel? yes absolutely. It is NYC so the rooms aren't large, but they're perfectly fine for getting a good night's sleep, a warm shower, and for any downtime you might want while breaking from business or tourism or whatever you're doing that day. Oh! And the rooftop bar is awesome. It is definitely a fun scene to be a part of and as hotel guests, you get to skip the line that will eventually form. People want to be up there on a beautiful summer night. We stayed until closing time because it was just so wonderful. I will definitely stay here again, and I highly recommend it to anyone else.
