A timeless classic since 1930, The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, exudes understated luxury in a perfect location for a cultural experience. Museum Mile is within walking distance with treasures like the Metropolitan Museum of Art. In the neighbourhood there are great small bistros where you can have good meal with local Upper East Siders. Round up the evening with a drink and jazz in the Bemelmans art deco style bar in the hotel. Another must is the hotel’s Cafe Carlyle where Woody Allen plays the clarinet with a New Orleans jazz band on Mondays. Go for a suite with a stunning view of Central Park and the Manhattan skyline.
