Expert review of The Carlton Hotel
Originally the Hotel Seville, which opened in 1904, The Carlton Hotel has helped bring about a rebirth to the area west of Madison Square Park. The result is a chic hotel that complements its historic environs but appeals to the tourist masses.
Located on the outskirts of Madison Square Park and just a 10-minute walk to the Empire State Building. The area has seen a recent surge in new eateries.
Famed architect David Rockwell fashioned the contemporary 317 guest rooms. Each has bespoke elements, from leather headboards to linens and wall coverings. Like most hotels in the city, the color palette is neutral for the most part, with pops of blue here and there. Work desks have built-in data ports and WiFi is complimentary. Marble bathrooms have Molton Brown products and well-lit make-up mirrors.
The lobby features 40-foot ceilings, a two-story waterfall and chandeliers. There are also seven meeting rooms equipped with audio and video components and several spaces for private events.
Millesime restaurant occupies two levels. The main floor houses the casual Salon Millesime at which one can order tapas and wine. The second floor serves seafood. Red banquettes and mosaic tiles lie underneath a century-old Tiffany-style dome. Walk across the glass bridge and you'll be at Bar Millesime. Reservations are required.
The hotel has a 24-hour fitness center.
Service isn't stuffy or formal. Porters are available for help with luggage.
Business travelers and couples looking for a low-key hotel.
The standard rooms are the best deals and are large enough to appeal to a variety of travelers.
