Salisbury Hotel is nestled across from Carnegie Hall, perfect for families who want to see a concert. The beautiful Central Park is a mere couple blocks away from the hotel, offering lakes, zoo animals and plenty of green space for families to experience. The Salisbury is a 17-story Neo-Gothic building that houses 120 guest rooms and 80 one-bedroom suites. Families who need extra space can also stay in one of the four, large two-bedroom suites. Suites are spacious and present walk-in closets — a luxury for the area. All rooms feature quaint designs that will remind you of a country cottage. Modern amenities grace the rooms, such as flat-screen televisions and in-room safes. Serving pantry kitchenettes are a nice touch and offer space to store anything you want, microwaves and refrigerators. Wireless Internet is also available for a small surcharge. A sunny dining room on the third floor offers a daily continental breakfast buffet.

Pros: great midtown location, friendly staff, clean, quiet room, comfortable bed, low price for NYC.
Cons: sorely in need of renovation - 1980s era bathroom, chipped paint, etc.
If you’re looking for luxury - or even something like a Hampton Inn - this isn’t it. But if you’re looking for a clean bed for a good price in a good location, this is fine.
Visited New York for a 4 day break and chose this hotel based on the reviews.
The lobby was dingy and dirty. The reception staff were surly and abrupt. There was only one lift working which was extremely slow. We had the standard twin room. It hadn’t been properly cleaned. Someone’s dirty hat was left in the room on a chair. The daily clean was hit and miss.
The bathroom had very slow draining drains and leaky toilet, black mould, peeling paint and rotting wood on the doors and units, Damp on the bedroom walls I have no idea what the other accommodations in this establishment is like but I would definitely avoid this place in the future. It’s very old tired and in dire need of a makeover and some better trained staff in customer service. Overpriced for what is offered compared to nearby alternatives. Yes the room was spacious but that’s about it! Very disappointing.
