                            Nice spacious room, with plenty of light and very comfortable bed

                            Cleaniness of public areas not ideal; breakfast in room very basic; slightly noisy

                            The internal room was very noisy becouse of the external air condition systems and it was almost impossible to sleep, no help from the hotel staff, the price (the total was 350$) is absolutely inappropriate.(it should be a superior room)

                            Very good hotel in Midtown New York. Walking distance to Soho, Meat Packing, West Village, 5th ave and Central Park. I am very picky when it comes to beds but Carlton has insanely comfortable beds.

                            Allthough the gym was very nice I could use a sauna in the gym and maybe little heavier weights.

                            I liked that it was clean and had no bedbugs, roaches or mice that i was aware of.

                            room was small and very expensive.

                            Great location, Midtown Manhattan, 5 blocks from Empire State Buliding, 1 block to a Subway station, walking distance to both Times Square and Central Park. Immaculate facilities and very friendly and helpful staff.

                            The distribution and the size of the room, the type of forniture and the designe in general.

                            The noise. In my opinion it should have a double window to reduce the cars and others noises.

                            Perfect location and comfort. We got a very good price for the family.

                            that the room was large.

                            the bathroom was tiny w/ a strange layout and the tub wasn't as clean as i would have hoped. Also for a big room it was odd to have a double bed instead of a queen/king.

                            The staff were nice and helpful. The hotel is a classy but relaxed place. Its location is perfect.

                            The TV channels were blurred (I mean snowy), one of the lamps and the radio didn't work. The bathtub could have looked a bit fresher. No teasmade. There were no slippers for guests, which I think should not be the case in the otherwise definitely classy hotel.

                            I love the classical decor and the wonderful staff. The rooms are very comfortable with lots of natural sunlight. The location is ideal as well.

                            The hotel is very tastefully decorated and our Deluxe Queen room was of good size, by New York standards. Bathroom was roomy enough as well and there was plenty of storage for toiletries. Bed was comfortable, linens were quite nice, and above all, the room, bathroom and linens were exceptionally clean! Staff was very accommodating. Valet parking for $40.00 per night - even our large SUV, was quite reasonable, I thought. I would definitely stay here again.

                            The location and the and the lobby of the hotel are great. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel is definitely something different and the atmosphere was very good.

                            The air-conditioning on the room was very loud and the fan was blowing like crazy, I had to turn it off when in bed, otherwise I was freezing. We checked in at 0:00, but the room was not ready, we had to come back in 30 minutes, but the room still was not ready. This was a bit weird, not having your room ready in the middle of the night.

                            Excellent located in mid town Manhattan

                            Booked room (Executive two bedded room) were not reserved instead just Standard room, but was changed into two spacey single room, which was o.k.
