The Carlyle, situated at the corner of Madison Avenue and 76th Street, has been a classic landmark of Manhattan’s sophisticated Upper East Side since 1930. Located just one block from Central Park, The Carlyle is a 35-story, 190-room hotel and is surrounded by galleries, designer boutiques and the city’s most popular art museums. The original Art Deco design by Dorothy Draper is blended with the legendary American style of Mark Hampton providing a true home-away-from-home feel. Many of the accommodations have been updated further with a more contemporary flair from designers such as Tony Chi, Alexandra Champalimaud and Thierry Despont. Embracing a passion for the arts, pianos grace many of the suites, and most tower rooms have views of Central Park. The Carlyle is also home to the celebrated Café Carlyle and the famed Bemelmans Bar and offers visitors a whimsical experience into an undefinable era of glamour.
