A Rosewood Hotel, The Carlyle, established in 1930 on Madison Avenue, has enchanted the most astute tourist for years, particularly those who value privacy and superb service. The historic hotel, designed by renowned architectural firm Bien & Prince and named after British essayist and philosopher Thomas Carlyle, has 189 luxurious rooms, 90 of which are suites, making it an excellent Upper East Side pied-à-terre.
Displaying amazing art and taking pride in providing its guests with careful privacy, you will find a sanctuary of great taste in its elegant residential-like rooms. The apartments, which have been tastefully furnished by designers such as Tony Chi, Dorothy Draper, Mark Hampton, Alexandra Champalimaud, and Thierry Despont, are the epitome of grace and comfort. Choose from original hardwood flooring and rich textiles in the Classic rooms, or the modern art deco design found in the Superior, Deluxe, and Premier rooms, depending on your aesthetic preferences. If you’re looking for an amazing view over New York, though, the Premier Suites are the way to go. Be swept away by sweeping views of Central Park and be enchanted by the galleries and boutiques that you have easy access to due to its central Manhattan location.
Put a special spin on your business trip with a stay in one of The Carlyle’s 180 rooms and suites which are each adorned in the finest fabrics, rugs, furniture and Frette linen. On the walls you can find prints by Audubon and architectural touches by Piranesi. Opt for a room with a private terrace, grand piano or, if you crave space, one with a separate sitting room or powder room. Whatever you fancy, a stay at The Carlyle will definitely have you doing all your business in the city that never sleeps.
