This may be the thinnest hotel I’ve ever stayed in but it was perfect. The rooms, while small, are modern and very clean. The hotel is perfectly located between Rockefeller Center and Central Park. I would definitely stay there again

Thank you for your review, Jerry! We absolutely love to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us at the Carnegie Hotel! We are indeed a replica hotel of the original property, but once you enter through our revolving door imported from Park Avenue in Manhattan, you transport back in time! Our lobbies are filled with antique pieces, some dating all the way back to the 1700's. We look forward to your next stay with us! Warmest regards, Zoe R.

This may sound dumb but do all the rooms have a shower? While I appreciate old tubs, I booked a room in the summer and need an actual shower.
All of the Carnegie Hotel's rooms have both a soaking tub and a stand-in shower. You are safe!

What are the check-in and check-out times? Thank you.
Check-in is at 3pm. You'll have to call the hotel front desk on the day of arrival if you want any earlier. They won't guarantee an early check-in but it's easy enough to request one. Check-out is at 12pm noon.

"Ask for the State of Franklin side of the hotel if trains wake you up. Suites are awesome and reasonably priced as well!"
"Take a look at the free snacks"
"If you are used to large, King size pillows, ask for more pillows. There are 4 on each bed but they are small."
"Fourth floor room was extremely quiet!"
"Upgrade to a suite. For the relative price difference, its worth it."
US$125 - US$172 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
