The Carlyle is the height of style, sophistication and Luxury. Every detail is attended to and each and every employee is 110% committed to your comfort and making sure that every need is met with a smile and warmth!
The old-style Carlyle has been one of my favorites since I first visited the hotel over 20 years ago. It’s truly an institution on Upper-East side. We love the bar with live jazz music, the breakfast, the service, the serviced elevators, the best concierges anywhere (thx to Jeff and Stephanie), the wonderful spa and the newly renovated rooms that really are outstanding. We will be back!
