The Experience

The Carlyle

The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel has been a timeless classic since its debut in 1930. This quintessential New York hotel is as much a landmark for its distinguished guests and celebrated entertainers as it is for its refined style and old-world charm, providing a quiet and genteel “home away from home” to the world’s elite.  Steps away from Central Park, The Carlyle offers its guests gracious and romanticdining in The Carlyle Restaurant, nightly jazz in Bemelmans Bar with its classic cocktails and whimsical murals by famed Madeline author Ludwig Bemelmans, and a true New York experience in the famed Cafe Carlyle where entertainer Bobby Short has performed for more than three decades.  

Superbly positioned on chic Madison Avenue, The Carlyle is surrounded by the galleries and designer boutiques of New York’s exclusive Upper East Side.  Minutes from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Guggenheim, the Whitney, and the Frick, the Hotel is steps away from what is commonly referred to as “Museum Mile.”  

Each of the 188 rooms and suites are individually and elegantly decorate much like a classic private home, every guest room and suite at The Carlyle feels like its own magnificent work of art. Accommodations offer aristocratic elegance and absolute comfort with a first-class combination of discretion and grace, some featuring grand pianos and spectacular views of Central Park and the city’s skyline.  Guests of The Carlyle enjoy Yves Delorme bedding, marble bathrooms with Kiehl’s® toiletries, Frette bathrobes, fully stocked mini-bar, flat screen television with Time Warner® Digital Cable, DVD players, iPod® docking station, lap-top sized security boxes, high-speed wireless Internet, individual climate control, 24-hour Room Service, use of our 24-hour Fitness Studio and Business Center, Valet Services and complimentary daily newspaper..

Sense® spa at The Carlyle continues the hotel’s tradition of providing guests with an oasis of luxury and tranquility in the heart of the city. Featuring Sisley, the premier brand in high-end skincare products, every spa treatment is an expression of The Carlyle’s dedication to providing the ultimate in luxury experiences.  The spa also features the Yves Durif Hair Salon and a state-of-the-art Fitness Studio, available exclusively to Carlyle guests, is staffed by certified fitness professionals.  

The Carlyle, with all its luxurious and modern conveniences, has a rich history of having been the hotel of choice for President Kennedy, Diana Princess of Wales, and an endless list of world leaders, business elite, and luminaries from stage and screen.  The hotel is glorious proof that one need not be a Manhattan resident to feel like one.

On a recent night at The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, Woody Allen appeared at the legendary Café Carlyle to jam with the Eddy Davis New Orleans Jazz Band. So goes the evening entertainment at this landmark hotel, sitting pretty on Madison Avenue and offering 188 guestrooms and suites among its 60 residential apartments.
