After searching and reading reviews for a great place to stay in NYC, I came across Sanctuary, and decided to take a chance. What a truly wonderful surprise. Just a half block from from Times Square, it's suprisingly private and tranquil. We spent 5 days in January and had an amazing time. The hotel is sexy, sleek and romantic. What I liked most was, almost immediatley I felt "at home" in big part to the frinedly staff. From the doormen, to the front desk, to Freddie the concierge, everyone talked with us. We didn't feel like a number or just another guest, but that the staff cared. And that's what makes a great hotel for me.
Some other highlights: We loved being able to get a continental breakfast in the morning and a cup of coffee and being able to just sit and plan our day. I'm so tired of being nickel and dimed everytime I go on a trip. To be able to get a free breakfast , free internet goes a long way in my book. And it was good!
Not a Times Square Guy, I usually stay in Soho, Tribeca or Chelsea.However, I really liked the location. Half block from the subway, one stop from the 42nd street stop, where you can connect to almost any line and get to anywhere in the city.
Now the only negative I had was... the room was small. Well appointed, comfortable,good bed, nice linens, always clean, sexy shower.. but small. We had a Queen I think on the 7th floor. We made it work and once we got suitcases situated ( see below) we were fine.
Sanctuary is my new go to hotel in NYC. Hopefully they won't let the good press and reviews go to their heads, but stay the course with the great staff, perks, and keep it affordable! It's the blueprint for their success and their future.
