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.

We expected a "Sanctuary" and we were not let down- The Cozy Queen Room WAS cozy, clean, efficient, and well designed- Everything was in perfect working order. We enjoyed our two night stay with them- We visited both roof top restaurants and both were welcoming and bright and clean- breakfast was included with our "Package" and it was modified to be "Room service" and was delivered on time and of good quality (we were expecting a continental type service but it was more than that) . C 19 Protocols were in place- Everything that was "changed" due to the C19 situation was painless, seamless, and well done. The location is absolutely perfect to Times Square and Central Park. we met the Hotel Manager- James- and he was Friendly, professional, caring, and accommodating- We will definitely return.

Was told breakfast was included. No breakfast was provided At check out they tried to add a "destination fee". It was never disclosed until check out. I never stay at a hotel with any such nonsense junk fees. I felt like this stay was a shake down. No breakfast, extra charges. Tiny room. A curtain separates the bathroom Read less

The receptionist and waiter exceeded our expectations, I would definitely recommend this place and revisit. Next time I’m doing the suite and eating at the Havana restaurant again the pizza , steak was delicious.

My boyfriend and I spent the night here awhile ago and we couldn't be happier with our stay. The hotel feels very sexy so it was perfect for our little staycation. We're right next to Times Square so we got to be tourist in our city. The rooftop is gorgeous. We had the king suite overlooking the street with wall to wall windows. It was a great change and escape from our tiny Brooklyn apartment. Would highly recommend for a sexy night in NY:) Also shout out to the GM Jeremy Poon if he's still there. Amazing hospitality from the bellman to the front desk to the housekeeping team. Read less
