The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

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

This was a splurge...our son was getting his Master's. Room was smaller than expected although very well appointed.

The Carlyle is the Best hotel in Nyc. It is the epitome of elegance and taste. All the services were first rate and the staff was extremely friendly and appreciative of your needs and always with a smile.

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.

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.

Elegant hotel with excellent service. Inconspicuous service - room was always clean when I went back.

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.

This hotel is everything I ever dreamed it would be. Just one block from Central Park and close to museums and great restaurants. Saw the ballet at Lincoln Center and a musical show on Broadway for half price. Connected with friends and family that I haven't seen in years. The staff at the Carlyle were the best and treated me like royalty. Got a choice of a free newspaper daily as well as good tips on getting to the airport. My room was much larger then I expected and the bed was very comfortable like sleeping on a cloud. It was close to public transportation. I can't waite to come back!

Everyone was so very nice at the Carlyle. We had a wonderful stay. The rooms were comfortable, clean and cozy. The rooms were not so hotel-ish and more like home.

the hotel is everything it's supposed to be. classic, immaculate, attentive, elegant.....but if you have a budget don't be seduced by the modest room rate for a manhattan 5 star. drinks in the bar with cool jazz and woody allen playing can come to several hundred $$ for 2 people for two hours. breakfast for two with tax and tip is $100. 24 hour room service and elevator operators, but no ironing board in the room(the 24/7 maid will take care of it)--it's spectacular but it isn't reasonable.

I found the hotel very gracious. Excellent customer service. If anyone asked where to stay in New York, I would recommend the Caryle.

It was a wonder trip. The Hotel was very gracious. I would recommend this to anyone.

outstanding guest services and rooms. one can't buy or build the charm and details of the past. They can only be earned over time by giving guests the best every day. Everyone made us feel like the only person in the world and we will cherish the memories. personal thanks to Roger and Tony for their assistance in getting us in to see Woody Allen. If they will have us back i will only stay at The Carlyle when we return to NYC.

The hotel was very classy, with a super clean and comfy room. The room had been recently updated but still kept the classic feel. The bathroom was luxurious and spotless. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. The hotel is in a great location close to the subway and close to Central Park. It is a very safe neighborhood and lots of shopping between Park, Lexington and Madison Avenues. The only downside is the food/drinks in hotel are quite pricey. Gym was great! If you are looking for a traditional, old school, NYC visit this is the hotel for you.

We would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York.

Absolutely lovely-- The nicest, most helpful staff.--Bemelmans Bar is hopping and great music--Woody Allen jazz in Cafe on Mondays-- nice room and beautiful, really spacious bathroom with Kiehl products.

I spent 4 nights at the Carlyle as a single traveler. It was a wonderful experience with very friendly and helpful staff, a terrific location and lovely accomodations. I will definitely return.

This is a great place to stay if you want to be near Madison Ave. & 5th. Ave. for shopping. It is a 2 min. walk to a beautiful area of Central Park, near the Alice in Wonderland statue and the lake with tiny sailboats. Other than that, it's a taxi ride to all other areas. The room was large compared to most NYC hotels, with a sitting area, 2 walk-in closets, and a walk-in bar. The staff was friendly and helpful, even microwaving my daughter's food & putting it on a plate.

Amazing guest service, esp. for my 6 year old daughter. They left sweets for her upon arrival and a special note, bear, coloring book and puzzle during turn down. She called it "home" our first night! Great walking accessibility to Central Park and the museums. We will be back!

great way to see nyc.

This hotel is everything I ever dreamed it would be. Just one block from Central Park and close to museums and great restaurants. Saw the ballet at Lincoln Center and a musical show on Broadway for half price. Connected with friends and family that I haven't seen in years. The staff at the Carlyle were the best and treated me like royalty. Got a choice of a free newspaper daily as well as good tips on getting to the airport. My room was much larger then I expected and the bed was very comfortable like sleeping on a cloud. It was close to public transportation. I can't waite to come back!
