Old World Charm

Posted Apr 20, 2014
The hotel has a rich history, that being said it is dated or at least the room we were in. The bonus of this was great hardwood floors and a larger sized room than in most NYC hotels. Furnishings were a little grandma like though. The best part was the staff. Loved the elevator operators and doormen so friendly. Front desk and concierge too. Great location for shopping and accessing Central Park and museums.

A class act

Posted Mar 31, 2014
Pros: Staff
Cons: Steam room could be mixed sex
Location: Great - by Central Park and good for shopping on Lexington.
This was a special weekend and the Carlye lived up to expectations. The location is good, convenient but also quiet. The hotel is elegant but not over stuffy. What made the experience special however were the staff. Always on hand to assist, with an air of discrete professionalism. Nothing seems too much trouble for them. Special mention to Geoff the concierge . . . . he even taught us to use the subway - Thanks Geoff! We will be returning to NY soon. We won't bother look elsewhere. Thanks

Spring Break 2014

Very classy hotel with great size rooms. Rooms were cleaned twice a day and the staffs were friendly. Front desk got us connecting rooms when we got there and that was wonderful! Overall a great place to stay for couples and families!

Romantic Night Away

Posted Mar 17, 2014
For a quick, romantic night in the city, the Carlyle was wonderful! It's an "old school" New York vibe with outstanding service. Bemelmans Bar is one of our favorite spots to end the evening, so the short commute up to the room was great! Would definitely recommend this hotel for the true New York experience.

Superior in every way!

Pros: Friendliness and professional.
Cons: Nothing.
Location: Uptown and quiet private.
Excellent. Arrived early in the day, my reservation was perfect, but the room was not ready yet, they invited me to make use of the spa facility (complimentary) until the room was ready!

Nice staff room very badly in need of renovation Location good near park but no park views. Lifts antiquated and small but with a lift attendant which is novel.

Old charme, needs updates

Posted Feb 16, 2014
This is one of the old grand hotels: completely outdated rooms, small and in need for some renovations. Great location though and very nice staff.
