Welcome to the Carlyle

This is my first visit to The Carlyle, but it feels like home. This Rosewood property is deliciously cosy with wooden floors, great carpets and old style refinement – but very fresh in feel.

In Upper East 76th Street on Madison overlooking Central Park, the area is residential, which adds to that homely feeling. Still it is very convenient for shopping, and Madison Avenue is known as Museum Mile with treasures like the Whitney Museum of American Art, Frick Collection, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Plus there are loads of small cosy restaurants in the neighbourhood. 

The hotel made its debut in 1930 so it is part of history and people who make history stay here. I took a little tour of the places to meet and dine in the hotel, or listen to artists perform:

Lobby, doors leading to...
...the popular Carlyle restaurant

…for breakfast, lunch and dinner
Breakfast buffet

Cosy corner perfect for the honoured tradition of afternoon tea

And the bar:

Great ambience and...

...painting of the four seasons from 1947
by the famous artist Bamelmans

The Carlyle is also a venue for nightly performances by famous artists (every night except during July and August) …

Café Carlyle - Woody Allan is on here every Monday night

I had a great site inspection, seeing the stylish rooms under the wing of Adrian Norbury ...

Adrian is Director of Sales & Marketing

Beautiful comfortable beds

Stylish rooms

Rooms in the tower have a magnificent view

And all so beautifully New York...
