The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel

35 E 76th St, New York, NY 10021
+1 212-744-1600

The Carlyle doesn't just have class, it's in a class of its own! Located in an art deco skyscraper on the corner of Madison Avenue and 76th Street, the hotel has been the unofficial residence of Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan, and numerous Hollywood stars since it opened near Central Park in 1930. Dorothy Draper, the illustrious interior decorated, created its "modern-baroque" interior. All 188 rooms feature antique details, handmade rugs, custom fabrics, and original prints by John James Audubon. Some even contain a piano!

The fantastic Carlyle Restaurant, designed by Mark Hampton — a favorite of George H.W. Bush — evokes an English castle with its hunting motifs. A second restaurant, The Gallery, serves traditional English tea and pastries. The Cafe Carlyle more closely resembles a cabaret, with murals by Marcel Vertes, who received an Academy Award in 1952 for his work on the costumes in "Moulin Rouge." Many famous performers, including Judy Collins and Woody Allen's New Orleans Jazz Band, have graced the stage here since 1955.

In short, the Carlyle is Hollywood with a touch of the easygoing Upper East Side.

Key info: The hotel has a 24-hour gym and an excellent spa.

Rooms start at $720 per night.
