Very nice but tired

By: Montgom319

Reviewed on: 02 Jan 2015

This hotel is very nice with excellent customer service. However, it definitely needs a facelift and is "tired" in many ways. Upon arrival our room was not ready due to a wall sconce that would not work. It delayed us getting settled for several hours and when we finally got to our room it smelled TERRIBLE. Eventually the smell went away, but we had to open the windows to allow for fresh air. And it was in the 30's so you can imagine how chilly our room got. The decor is dated, and in need of fresh paint. For the price of the room, one would expect a more current take on the aesthetic they are trying to achieve. I will say that the room had great storage. We were there for 5 nights, so it was important to me to feel settled and put away all of our things. The storage certainly accommodated us in this respect. Concierge was outstanding and helped to make our trip superb. While our stay was comfortable, I do not think we will choose The Carlyle for lodging again.

Our family loves to stay at The Carlyle when we travel to Manhattan. The dining is special, the staff truly cares about the guests, and the size of the hotel is just right and not silly big. We feel special when we stay at The Carlyle. We are repeat guests and will keep staying at The Carlyle in the future.

Even with 60% of the hotel under construction, the Carlyle manages to delight. What a singular experience in the residential neighborhood of the upper east side. The hotel is full of unique and surprising spaces, the combination of tradition and modern expressed with a deft and unusual hand. A one of a kind oasis in the big city.

The ambiance at The Carlyle just doesn’t get any better. We were upgraded to a suite that was phenomenal with a view of Central Park not to be beat! We loved our 3 nights while there. Staff always courteous and nice.
