Sanctuary Hotel

Midtown, New York

The hotel

The clue’s in the name — The Sanctuary Hotel is a haven in its own right. From a sushi restaurant and rooftop cocktail bar, to richly detailed rooms, you’ll be spoilt for choice with where to spend some down-time. Make the most of the complimentary breakfast each morning, and be fully-fuelled to spend the day exploring the Big Apple. You’ll even have the hotel’s S.T.A.R concierge on hand for ‘Service Tailored to Any Request’, so you can (quite literally) make this your very own sanctuary.

I had a wonderful time at the Sanctuary hotel. The staff go over and above to ensure your needs are met. The hotel is so cozy. Make sure to dine at Sushi by Bou. The fish is so fresh and the friendly staff made it a very memorable experience. I highly recommend this hotel.

The staff here are incredible and go above and beyond on every aspect. So friendly and helpful. They greeted us with hot tea and cocoa and it kept getting better. Rooms are small, ok for 2 people, but snug. No dresser or fridge. Would totally stay here again. Location is fantastic, right off Times Square. Breakfast is included and was very good.

Had a staycation to just relax for a couple days and glad we chose this hotel. A real hidden gem in Times Square (which as a real New Yorker you’d always avoid this area). Room is small but pretty standard do NY but the hotel makes great use of the space. Buffet breakfast was also pretty good and don’t skip the rooftop(open in the winter but covered) with good music and eats. No gym but off passes to a gym within walking distance that I didn’t visit since it wasn’t close enough during a very cold winter morning. Would recommend staying. Read less
