Review: Sanctuary Hotel – New York, NY

Review: Sanctuary Hotel – New York, NY

New York City welcomes more than 50 million visitors every year! Moreover, to accommodate such an enormous amount of tourists, the city has more than 600 hotels. Now, if a hotel manages to acquire a certificate of excellence along with the title of ‘The International Hotel of the Year’, you can’t doubt its proficiency in being an expert hospitality services provider. That’s precisely how you can define the Sanctuary Hotel, located right in the heart of New York in Midtown West, 47th Street.


This modern, four-star luxury boutique hotel probably offers one of the best ‘premier locations’ a hotel could offer in this city since it is located a stone’s throw away from Times Square, the most vibrant and colorful neighborhood of New York City. While being at the Sanctuary, one would be able to access attractions like – the Broadway Theatre District, the Empire State Building, Gulliver’s Gate, Madame Tussauds, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not pretty conveniently. The excellent location alone could be a reason enough for anyone to go ahead and book this hotel. But wait! There’s so much more.


The hotel has 113 stylish guest rooms that consist of seven different categories, from cozy and comfortable deluxe rooms to exorbitantly spacious and sumptuous suite accommodations. Each of their rooms has been designed to offer effortless comfort and a taste of opulence with European bed linens, crystal chandeliers, marble countertops, leather wall tiles, work desks with iHome stereo and docking stations, rainfall showerheads, chic fireplaces, mini-bars and tasteful mood lighting. To make things even more exciting, almost all their rooms come with stunning views of Manhattan.

Some of the best ones include – complimentary Continental breakfast every morning, complimentary high-speed Wi-Fi connectivity throughout the hotel, access to Equinox Luxury Health Club at Rockefeller Center, 24-hour room service, multilingual staff, on-site restaurant and a rooftop bar and their genuinely exceptional STAR concierge service.

Tender Restaurant

With contemporary American cuisine and an impressive sushi menu, the Sanctuary Hotel’s in-house sophisticated fusion restaurant, Tender, saves you from spending hours looking and then booking a great restaurant in NYC. Located right next to the lobby, Tender is set in a spacious dining room and is designed to impress even the pickiest of guests with its polished brass bar, grey and brown earth-toned decor, beaded chandeliers and a relaxed ambiance. Order their juicy steaks or indulge your palate with their fresh sushi preparations, either way, an outstanding dining experience is guaranteed. You can also try their creative craft cocktails or perhaps a ‘glass of red’ from their largely cosmopolitan wine collection.

Haven Rooftop

Sitting majestically on top of this incredible 9-story hotel, Haven Rooftop offers an elegant dining experience with gorgeous views of Manhattan. What’s offered is an upmarket, modern American cuisine with a fabulous bar menu. The design of this place allows you to enjoy an intimate dining experience with some classy music playing in the background. Haven Rooftop is the perfect hideout for anyone looking to spend some relaxing time, away from the maddening crowd of this glitzy city for a while. Order a drink and some tasty bites, sit back and relax in this paradise, I mean Haven!
