My wife and I wanted a weekend get away to recharge, reconnect, and relax. We arrived Friday night around 7:30. We liked the hotel's location in the Upper East Side, tucked away in a quiet part of town close to Central Park. The vibe is classy while not being stuffy at all. According to the website, the Isaac Mizrahi show that night in the Carlyle Cafe was sold out. When I casually mentioned that to Eddie, who was bringing our bags up to our room, he immediately introduced me to the Carlyle Cafe's impeccably attired and super-friendly GM, Gogo, who graciously promised us he would 100% make room for my wife and I. We scampered to our room (which was great and has a captivating book about the hotel with a forward in it from Lenny Kravitz that is sheer brilliance), showered, changed into dressy attire, and an hour later we were enjoying Isaac Mizrahi and wine in the Cafe. What a funny, entertaining show, and fantastic start to our weekend! The next evening we used our complimentary passes to skip the line (which was out the door) and enjoy Bemelmans Bar where we were warmly greeted by staff and treated with next level kindness and care. Julian was especially friendly and cool. When we checked out the following morning we felt recharged, reconnected, and relaxed from our stay. The Carlyle hotel delivers an experience that was objectively perfect in every possible way. That is really, really rare. One final note: everything in The Carlyle is very expensive. So if you are the type of person who compulsively analyzes whether each drink, meal, can of nuts in your hotel room, etc. is really worth what is being charged for them, do not come to The Carlyle. You will not have a good time. In fact, you may lose your mind. Rather, to truly enjoy The Carlyle you must focus purely on the overall experience. Interestingly, if you do that, when you look back, you will find that while any particular drink, meal, item, etc. may be overpriced when analyzed in isolation, when you analyze the entire experience The Carlyle delivers as a whole, it actually delivers tremendous value for the price.

The Carlyle will always be the Carlyle. Amazing time in one of NY most iconic hotels. From the check-in experience to the room service; from the Bemelmans experience to the continual smiling valet and courtesy car service; an impeccable and quintessential New York experience.

I felt like I died and went to heaven when I first stepped into our signature Rosewood suite at the iconic Carlyle hotel . My jaw dropped to the floor when I caught sight of the totally unobstructed views of magical Manhattan surrounding us in the most dramatic way . I wanted to hug Diana from the Guest Experience team and who gifted us this most fabulous treat - one I will take with me to the grave . So thank you again Diana and team for giving us the opportunity of a lifetime to have the most coveted view of the Big Apple and the best city view we’ve ever had in any city we have traveled to . I loved the design of the room with windows wrapping around the entire space so you get a heavy dose of that insatiable view with every step you take in the impeccably decorated room . Even the bathroom had views overlooking the entire city . As if the stunning marble vanities and marble shower stalls weren’t enough eye candy . The wall paper with artist drawings of typical New York scenes really added a fun and whimsical yet elegant touch to the room . Everything about this property was pure and utter delight. The hotel bar offered the best old fashioned cocktails I’d ever had and our dinner at Dowlings did not disappoint either . Everything we ordered was tantalisingly delicious ! And the service is quite unique in that every staff - whether the lovely hostess who seated us at the best table facing this gorgeous fireplace , or the waiter Mirim who prepared our steak Diane to perfection right at our table - all treated us with the utmost of warmth and affection . It felt like we’d known everyone for years , they made us feel like family . You’d expect a slightly pretentious attitude from the staff of such a high end luxury hotel but the staff were all down to earth and seemed to sincerely care about their guests and their comfort throughout their stays . Even our dog was pampered with the highest level of attention being given a plush monogrammed day bed , and stunning porcelain doggie bowls for food and water all nicely laid out by a butler on a rubber mat also branded with the Carlyle’s signature coat of arms . I would only be so lucky to return here and will for sure book The Carlyle as my absolute top and only choice amongst the plethora of New York City luxury hôtels . I cant wait to celebrate my next milestone occasion here. I hope to be welcomed again by Stephanie and Diana at the front desk who kicked off our stay on the most positive note thanks to their warm smiles and infectious personalities ❤️ They really know how to make guests feel special and really seem to enjoy their jobs giving it their all .

The Carlyle, a 35-story Beaux Arts beauty, is the center of NYC elegance situated on the corner of Madison Ave & 76th Street. The interior lobby area is dazzling, alike visiting a contemporary art gallery. My Premier room was beautiful with a handsome desk bookended between floor-to-ceiling spoked windows that afforded city views overlooking Madison Avenue. There were elegant coffee tables, abstract artworks, chic armchairs and all manner of bespoke furnishings. The bath was lavishly appointed and incredibly spacious with a rain shower, soaking tub and underfloor heating. Dowlings, the hotel's enticing flagship restaurant serves up a classic menu like: Tuna Tartare, Wild Burgundy Escargot, Steak Diane and more......I enjoyed the delicious Maryland Crabcakes. Cafe Carlyle is a legendary jazz restaurant known for headlining incredible talent and taps into the menu of Dowlings. Bemelmans Bar is an iconic captivating bar with playful murals, an extensive drink menu and groovy jazz entertainment. The Gallery is an exquisite private retreat perfect for afternoon tea and house-made pates. The luxurious Valmont Spa pairs up with a fitness center to provide a wellness facility for hotel guests and as well, the hotel houses spectacular space for meetings, weddings and event. So, if you are looking for a luxury NYC hotel that offers remarkable charm, privacy and brilliant service,...........then try the ..............Carlyle...........in a class of it's own.

The Carlyle is a hotel oozing with character. No matter who you are, they make you feel like you are at home from the moment you step foot inside. Even if a year has gone by and you return, they treat you as if you were there yesterday. The curation of the new rooms is simply exceptional. Grab a coffee to go and walk through the park or shop in the beautiful boutiques on the upper east side. If I’m in New York, it has to be at the Carlyle.

We reserved through expedia and the front desk employee gave us a very indoor looking dark room. I asked specifically buy they did not even offer a better room for extra dollars. The in room dining was quite good, both the quality and the service. We could have stayed for another 3 nights if they had given us the option of other rooms.
