Elegant hotel with comfortable atmosphere. Lots of beauty care and rest surrounds you. Just outside the door is the most perfect part of Central Park.

Late night in NYC

Would recommend Fri, Jun 5, 2015
I am a frequent nyc traveler. I arrived late on a saturday night and the hotel I normally stay was booked. to my delight the Carlyle was available. I received a double upgrade upon check in. The rate was great and the room was large. Staff excellent. Started the next morning off with a walk around Central Park which is just a block from the hotel. I may have found my new hotel for NYC

Don't dial The Carlyle

Would not recommend Tue, Dec 16, 2014
Disappointed. The 2 phones were dirty, the bathroom ceiling had multiple pink splotches from something that sprayed upwards, the light switch plates were dirty and the baseboards were scuffed. I unknowingly dropped some almonds on the floor my first night there and noticed them on the floor 5 days later while doing my morning floor exercises. The bathroom sink hot water handle spoke broke off in my hand the first time turned and was repaired the next day. Upon both arrival and departure, no one ever offered to help me with my bags as I schlepped them up and down several levels of stairs several times to and fro the front desk. Nor did a doorman ever open a door for me. The wait staff at The Bemelman cafe was so slow and inattentive that I had to leave before my lunch ever came to my table. Then when I gave the waiter my charge card to run, it took an inordinate amount of time such that I had to go into the Captain's area and ask for it back. I was told the machines were down and that they would have to wait to run it or write down my information! The front desk staff was not helpful via telephone in directing/instructing me how to obtain tickets to Steve Tyrell's show in the Cafe as I was a hotel guest. I was told they did not have anything to do with tickets. I actually then walked downstairs to the Cafe to get them. The night wait staff was excellent in The Bemelman and The Cafe. The bed sheets were excellent. The gym was good. The room was quiet. The experience was not on par with The Ritz, Four Seasons, The Pierre, The Plaza, The Mandarin, and lower star rated hotels.

wow, but.......

Would recommend Thu, Jan 3, 2013
what a delightful hotel. it's over the top classy in the tonniest neighborhood in manhattan. it's also so foolishly expensive we stayed out of the bar and breakfast room during our entire 5 day stay after our initial sticker shock for charges. if you can get a good deal--this is the place--but unless your family owns oil wells avoid the bar and restaurant.


frick museum--what a lovely spot with quality artwork.

NYC luxury weekend

Would not recommend Sat, Dec 8, 2012
The Carlyle is not worth the money. The entry level rooms are okay but not outstanding. We noticed a mild dusty condition in the room and common areas as well. Being in the upper east side of NYC and near lovely shops and restaurants is fun for a couple days.There is an interesting International clientele. We enjoy hearing various languages being spoken, as many people are drawn to the old reputation of the hotel.The staff are very helpful. If you want to splurge for a day or two just for the experience go for it. We however would not stay there again, as there are other hotels that are better priced and similar luxury level.


Go once to the "well known restaurants" but then find out where the locals eat the various cuisines- the food is invariably better at lower prices

Special Birthday

Would not recommend Fri, Nov 2, 2012
We arrived to find that only one room was ready and this was at 2.40pm. In next door room was a screaming baby. Needed to change rooms. Nothing was available so told to go for a walk. Arrived back at 4.30 rooms still not ready. Offered a cup of tea. We had left England at 9.30 am. So been up for hours. Room was good but bathrooms were very small. Loo seat was chipped and the hole in the marble had been filled with a poor quality filler and the sealant round the shower and the bath was dirty. Air conditioning was very noisey and didn't work properly.


Orsay. Good restaurant.

Could not have been happier

Would recommend Mon, Jul 2, 2012
My wife and I went to New York to celebrate our anniversary. it was our first time to New York. We chose The Carlyle because of its proximity to Central Park and to the Metropolitan Museum of Art - and because we wanted to stay somewhere that was really nice. We could not have been happier with our time at The Carlyle. The staff was attentive and professional. Our room in the tower had a breathtaking view. The room was clean and very comfortable.

Time saver

If it is your first visit to the city and you are only there for a few days, just take cabs instead of trying to navigate the subways. It will cost more, but it will be quicker and less stressful.
