We do a yearly trip to celebrate our wedding anniversary and for the first time we brought our kids with us - they are 4.5 and 1.5 years old. The Carlyle is elegant, refined, and beautiful. We booked a deluxe suite which wasn't available so we were upgraded to a gorgeous premier suite. It was absolutely gorgeous but lacked a second bathroom (one of the reasons we got a suite in the first place) and so we were placed in a cheaper superior suite (and credited the difference).
It's hard to say what we loved the most - the hotel itself is beautiful, the location is absolutely fabulous, and the staff is wonderful. I think the latter edges out the other two, because the staff is really just terrific. Everyone from the bellmen to the front desk staff to the elevator operators to housekeeping was absolutely top notch. I was so impressed that they remembered us, our kids, and our needs from almost the moment we checked in. The suite was spacious for our party of two adults and two children, and everything was decorated so nicely. Beyond all of this, the location was great - quiet and yet close to so much. We had a car with us and even found street parking a few times.
I'd recommend this hotel to couples and families - we always felt welcome and well cared for. We are all trying to think of reasons to return to the Carlyle soon!
