This is the perfect place to stay in New York, so comfortable and welcoming, a home away from home but the hotel must solve the elevators problem... I waited also around 15 minutes back from a run, was sweating in the lobby (sorry not pretty) as there was only one elevator attendent on duty, I could not find the stairs... More

This hotel is in a great location on the Upper East of NY. This is near to central park and a number of high end boutique stores. I stayed for three nights on a work trip and travel to NY often so I am looking for different things to your average tourist. The rooms are comfortable, great linen, lots of... More

The hotel lobby is very nice and beautiful and so is the dining room. Our room was quiet with a view of the neighbor's apt. windows. Our room was large with 2 closets and a tiny bathroom. The linens and towels were luxurious. However, the furniture in our room has seen better days. They were all really worn, old, tired... More

Please allow me to express my sincerest apologies for the inconveniences and disappointments you experienced during your stay, particularly with the condition of the furniture. It is simply inexcusable, and I know my apologies cannot even begin to make amends for the frustrations you felt while visiting New York. We would be honored to speak with you more in-depth regarding... More

Rather, an elevator operator does it for you. As it might have been when rope elevators were new and possibly dangerous 160 years ago But this one thing epitomizes the place - old school, and vigorously hanging on to every scrap of old school dignity Like boarding school, many rules apply: No shorts No electronic checkout No getting your own...

Very nice classic hotel. Located just one block from Central Park, easy access to all midtown. Really cool bar downstairs, and even elevator attendents. Very polite attentive staff. We will be back again and again.

We always look forward to staying at the Carlyle. The experience is unusually pleasant. This upper east side hotel has the older charm of days gone by, a welcome change from today's more standard upscale hotels. Of special note is the bar (great piano players and full strength, well-made drinks) and the dining room. Service is also excellent, all around.... More

My wife and I spent two nights at the Carlyle and took our dog with us, too. We were in NYC on business and wanted a comfortable place with excellent service. It was our first stay at the Carlyle, but we were familiar with the hotel and with Bemelmen's Bar from when we lived nearby. This stay exceeded our expectations.... More

We had a pleasant stay at the Carlyle. It was nice to be on the Upper East Side where it is calmer and it is an older, elegant hotel. The room was quite large with hardwood floors and a large closet. The bed was very comfortable with lovely linens and great pillows. Nevertheless, I think that in light of the... More

This hotel has the old school charm of NYC. I get tired of your standard run-of-the-mill, super modern, no character hotels. This place has character. Little details like actual keys instead of a plastic card to access your room, beautiful solid wood quality furniture, plush beds, gorgeous fabric window treatments, hardwood floors with oriental area rugs, make you feel like...

Located in the swanky upper East Side, near the best shops (think Ralph Lauren, Tom Ford, Carolina Herrera and more on Madison Ave), our experience is always perfect. The Carlyle's rooms are very comfortable, with all amenities; perhaps not as spacious as a Hampton, but with much more character. And quiet. The bed/linens very comfortable. We've stayed in king bed-rooms... More

Staying in Upper East Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper East Side
Combining quiet residential neighborhoods that have easy access to Central Park with world-famous cultural institutions, the Upper East Side is one of the most livable places in the city. Along beautiful Fifth Avenue, you’ll find Museum Mile, which houses many of the nation's most famous attractions in a single stretch, like The Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Guggenheim Museum. Walk a few blocks into the neighborhood, and you’ll come to Park Avenue, the poshest address in the city, lined with grand apartment buildings as far as the eye can see. Even if you can’t afford the luxury goods along Madison Avenue, it’s still a great spot to window shop an afternoon away.
