Times Square on a Budget

Super Affordable Broadway Location

The Hotel Carter has one of the most desirable locations for Manhattan visitors who love the hustle and bustle of Times Square. If you're in town for a weekend of shows, shopping, and fantastic New York restaurants, you can't go wrong with budget-priced rooms at the Hotel Carter. The hotel is next to the Port Authority Bus Terminal, Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum, and the Broadway theatres. It's also just a short walk to Radio City Music Hall, Rockefeller Center, and the Museum of Modern Art.

Close to the Best Theatres and Restaurants

Anyone who has ever been to Times Square knows it's the most exciting place to be, especially if people-watching is your thing. The Hotel Carter is right next to the bright lights of Broadway and all the exceptional eateries that go hand in hand with an evening at the shows.

For shopping enthusiasts, the Hotel Carter is convenient to Macy's, Madison Avenue, Park Avenue, and the luxurious boutiques on 5th Avenue. Why not spend an afternoon window shopping the hottest fashion trends?

Entertainment options abound near the Hotel Carter, even if Broadway isn't your style. The hip nightlife of Hell's Kitchen is just a short walk away; you can enjoy the trendiest clubs and bars.

Even Central Park is within walking distance of the Hotel Carter. At just about a mile away, it's an easy stroll and you can enjoy the museums and other landmarks that line the park. The hotel's Midtown location is ideal for exploring all of Manhattan's most famous attractions. The Empire State Building is just a few blocks from the hotel's front door.

For more wide-ranging exploration of New York City, the Hotel Carter has easy access to the city's extensive public transportation system. Of course, taxis are ubiquitous in Times Square, too.

Rooms with All the Essentials

The rooms at the Hotel Carter are about the same size as other hotels in Manhattan's prime Theatre District location. There are three room types: Two single beds, two double beds, and one double bed. All rooms have a tub/shower combination bathroom, cable TV, and in-room phone. Wireless Internet access is available for a fee.

The hotel has a small coffee shop for a quick morning pick-me-up or an afternoon snack. There is on site assistance for getting tickets to your favorite shows and events. The hotel offers limited self-parking for a fee and airport transportation is available for an additional surcharge.

The Bottom Line

The Hotel Carter was completed in 1950 and the rooms and amenities may seem a little dated. However, the hotel's low prices and superb Times Square location make the Hotel Carter a real contender for guests looking for a cheap, comfortable room to crash in after a busy day exploring the charms of the city.

If you're looking for a hotel with more amenities like a bar or lounge and room service—that won't break the bank—you might prefer the Paramount Hotel on West 46th a bit more.
