A timeless classic, The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, has been called home by leaders in world affairs, business, society, entertainment and the arts since its debut in 1930. Brilliantly positioned on Madison Avenue, it is a true New York landmark -- a showcase of great art, a purveyor of privacy and a sanctuary of refined taste. Guests feel truly ensconced in an elegant private residential atmosphere, which includes a discreet and polished staff as well as world-class dining and entertainment. Located in the heart of Manhattan, The Carlyle offers sweeping views of Central Park and easy access to the encircling Upper East Side galleries and boutiques, as well as the nearby "Museum Mile." Each of the Carlyle's 180 rooms and suites have been individually decorated and appointed with the finest fabrics, rugs, boudoir chairs and Frette linens. The walls are adorned with original Audubon prints, architectural renderings by Piranesi and English country scenes by Kips. Some accommodations feature private terraces, grand pianos and spectacular views of the city's skyline. Suites, priced by size, space and exposure, offer separate sitting rooms with powder room.
