Expert review of The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel

A New York classic with real history.

This city legend has hosted many heads of state who hobnob with Upper East Side society. It is certainly not trendy by any stretch of the imagination but I find it charming and elegant if a bit formal for my taste.

Location: 

It's got the perfect Upper East Side address close to Central Park, the Metropolitan Museum, and the designer boutiques of Madison Avenue. 

Bedrooms: 

Unabashedly old school, the guestrooms are full of upholstered furniture, classic comfy beds and marble bathrooms. When I last stayed things were a little threadbare but a recent renovation has helped. Ask for a park view.

Public areas: 

Formal lobbies and classic drawing rooms continue the elegant feel of the property. You never know who you may see being whisked through but they are usually important.

Eating and drinking: 

The Bemelman's Bar, with its gorgeous murals, is pricey but if you want an old school martini and white glove service there is nowhere as atmospheric in New York. 

Leisure facilities: 

A gym with steam room and sauna and personal trainers. 

Service: 

White glove all the way but warm service too. Offers of a complimentary Mercedes for special events and the use of a Balmoral pram during one's stay are among the thoughtful touches.
