    My wife is a teacher and I own a landscape business and serve as a youth pastor. That being said, our lives are crazy and Thanksgiving break is really the only time of the year that neither of us have work obligations. We wanted to vacation in a place where there was always something to do while having a clean, comfortable, quiet place to crash at the end of the day. NYC was our "always something to do" and Sanctuary was our "clean, comfortable, quiet place to crash". As I searched for a place to stay the pictures, description, and review of Sanctuary really caught my attention. I was not disappointed. What you see is exactly what you get. Our room was bright, clean, and spacious. The bed was comfortable. The kitchen was spotless and had everything we could have needed to prepare meals. The bathroom was clean and the walk-in shower was a definitely a plus. It was close to subway stations, good local restaurants, and a whole foods market. On top of all of that... It was quiet. As part of our ministry, my wife and I chose to move into a rough neighborhood and reach out to the youth in our community. We hear sirens and yelling constantly. Believe it or not, we had a break from all of that in NYC! Our room was on the back of the building and it was so quiet that we wound up turning on the fan just so we'd have enough background noise to fall asleep. Try finding that anywhere else in NYC! The staff was friendly and very accommodating. We had to leave a night early due to a winter storm that threatened to keep us from getting home for Thanksgiving and the Sanctuary staff went above and beyond to make our early departure as financially painless as possible. The ONLY negative... Parking. Once you find a legal spot, you better not move your car because you'll never find another one. - Eric

      Having lived in NYC for 10 years (and now moved away for over a decade), the last thing I want to do when I go back to The City is to impose on good friends by sleeping on their couch. I also can't bear the thought of plunking down money on a touristy hotel room. If anything, I want to recreate my old New York living experience by staying in a cozy apartment with all the amenities. The Sanctuary fits those needs PERFECTLY. The check-in process is simple and efficient, and once you get to your "room," one finds themselves in a space that speaks to someone who actually wants to "live" in the city for while, as opposed to merely visiting. The Samedhi suite (where I stayed in the Sanctuary) is a beautifully furnished one bedroom, self-catering apartment that reminded me of my old apartment in NYC -- which is why I felt so comfortable being there. It was an oasis during my day that I could return to and not feel like I was staying in a box-hotel. The staff is helpful, but unobtrusive; and the clientele are all aware that the underlying yoga-vibe means that we all respect one another. I can't recommend the Sanctuary highly enough, but one needs to be aware that if you'd rather be at the Hilton or Marriot when you travel, this place is probably not necessarily for you. Maybe if you dialed down your life, took a deep breath, hit a yoga pose once in a while and then thought about what you wanted out of your temporary stay in NYC, then the Sanctuary would absolutely become your home away from home. - Mike

        I have an awesome time in NYC and it was made even better by my stay at sanctuary guest suites. Its a very clean and calm environment in the midst of a bustling city. After a long day of running around the city it was so nice to come back and relax in such a nice place. I also want to thank the staff who were so professional and accommodating. I would recommend this a place to stay for anyone going to visit NYC. - Vish

        We stayed here for 8 nights in late June, early July 2012, and chanced upon the booking after leaving our reservations until very late. We arrived after midnight after thirty hours flying, and the greeting was wonderful, welcoming and could not have been easier. During our stay we felt welcomed into a family that we could spend time with or not, as we wished. Room was large enough for two people easily, with great facilities, although we didn't actually use the cooking facilities. Free wifi, although connection was sometimes iffy - but then it was just a matter of going into the lobby. We had a fabulous home cooked vegan breakfast every morning cooked by Lisa, and the coffee was the best we found in NY. Subway station was just a ten minute walk away and there were some really fantastic restaurants and cafes locally. This did not feel like a tourist area, although we were close to Little Italy and Chinatown. Would have no hesitation staying again and am recommending it to all my friends. - Tassie

          First time staying here, and I will definitely be back. Great value for what you get. Quite neighbourhood, its nice to come back to your room after a busy day in the city and its just a short walk to the subway where the F train will take you to all the main stops. Wholefoods is about a 15 min away. Staff was friendly and accommodating. The general manager was great with replying to emails prior to our stay. Yoga classes are free while staying here, we didn't get a change to go but maybe next time. The only downfall was that we had to check in after hours and wait outside for about 20 min before someone was there to let us in, Overall I would highly recommend staying here. - Kara

          This place seemed to good to be true! The price was very reasonable; my first encounter with the staff via e-mail, phone and in person was professional and friendly; the location was great - easy to find and the neighbourhood seemed safe. The rooms had a great design and the whole atmosphere was a complete contrast from the hustle and bustle in the city - calm and relaxing apartments. Overall amazing stay would recommend to anyone. - Jay
