We went to the Carlyle for my first trip to New York. My partner had been to NYC a few times but never to stay in somewhere like the Carlyle. It really feels like you've stepped into an old film with its elegant furnishings, beautiful 30s-40s interior and attentive service.
Our room was clean, stylish and comfortable with a fabulous view across Central Park. The shower was incredibly powerful,just what you need after a long trip from London. The plumbing was a bit dodgy sometimes but it hardly seemed to matter as there was hot water aplenty and wonderful Kiehls toiletries to enjoy.
A highlight was a visit to Bertleman's Bar which has a lovely demi-monde feel with its gorgeous painted walls and subtle lighting. Chris Gillespie added to the retro ambience with beautiful piano playing, even playing some Rogers and Hart at my request. I feel honoured!
Staff could not be more attentive or helpful. All in all a wonderful place to have as a base for exploring New York. I really did feel like an old movie star. Thank you. x
