While the walls at The Carlyle don't talk, they definitely whisper. Matthew Miele’s Always at The Carlyle brings to life the untold stories of this legendary hotel as heard from the mouths of its own employees and top clientele, including George Clooney, Anjelica Huston, Tommy Lee Jones, Vera Wang, Anthony Bourdain, Roger Federer, Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola, Jon Hamm, Lenny Kravitz, Naomi Campbell and Elaine Stritch.
Situated at the corner of Madison Avenue and 76th Street, The Carlyle has been a classic landmark of Manhattan's elegant Upper East Side since 1930. Located just one block from Central Park, The Carlyle is a 35-story, 190-room hotel and is surrounded by galleries, designer boutiques and the city's most popular art museums. The original Art Deco design by Dorothy Draper is blended with the legendary American style of Mark Hampton providing a true home-away-from-home feel. Many of the accommodations have been updated further with a more contemporary flair from designers such as Alexandra Champalimaud and Thierry Despont. Embracing a passion for the arts, pianos grace many of the suites, and most tower rooms have views of Central Park. The Carlyle also is home to the celebrated Café Carlyle, where Bobby Short played to sold out crowds for 36 years, and the famed Bemelmans Bar, with its whimsical hand-painted murals of Central Park.
