The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel

An elegant, historic hotel in New York's Upper East Side

By Emma Reynolds

Located on New York City’s Upper East Side, The Carlyle, a Rosewood Hotel is one of the city’s most iconic hotels. It first opened in 1930 as a sophisticated Art Deco-style luxury hotel named after Scottish essayist, Thomas Carlyle. While it has seen many owners over the past century, it remains just as iconic. The chic hotel (which has been operated by Rosewood since 2001) has 188 rooms, 89 suites and 60 residences, and has hosted countless celebrities, royals and heads of state (including Marilyn Monroe, John F Kennedy and Bill Clinton, to name a few). Each room and suite has a chic residential style featuring unique art and furnishings. There is a Sisley spa, Yves Durif salon and several dining venues, including The Carlyle Restaurant, Café Carlyle, The Gallery, Bemelmans Bar and Madeline Tea. It boasts a sense of history and sophistication that simply stepping inside transports you to a bygone era.  

Top Suite: Empire Suite

Stay in the one-of-a-kind Empire Suite, designed by interior designed Thierry Despont. The 2,600-sq-ft accommodation has two bedrooms (and a pull-out sofa for extra guests) and has views over the Manhattan skyline and Central Park through floor-to-ceiling windows. The residential-style suite is a duplex and encompasses parts of the 28th and 29th floors. Enjoy the wonderfully curated fine art and photography collection inside the suite.
