The Carlyle Hotel (New York part 2)

Last weekend I tried something different.  When I visit the City I usually crash in my BFF’s guest room.  I’m fortunate to have wonderful friends and the only thing better than a trip to New York City is a trip shared with great friends.  As luck might have it, my schedule was such that I was going to miss my friends so I elected to stay at the Carlyle.  While this was my first time staying at the hotel, I’ve visited the Carlyle or rather Cafe Carlyle and Bemelmans’ Bar for years – both are favorites!  I could not have made a better choice for a stay.

The location of the hotel was perfect for me.  It was a quick walk to the Met, the Frick, and Central Park from the hotel.  It is also across the street from Zitomer’s, a New York favorite.

I arrived late Friday evening where I was greeted by the doorman who wisked my bags to my room while I was checked in by the wonderful staff.  My room was spacious, especially by New York hotel standards.  Since I’d come in on a late flight, I’d not had dinner and opted for room service.  I elected mac-n-cheese which arrived quickly and was delicious.  The bed was to die for and I immediately crashed after a long day.

The next morning I slept in  and then headed to dining room for breakfast which was  included in my package.  After eggs, fruit, bacon, and pastries, I headed to the Met to begin my day.  The buffet was extensive and tasty.  It was the perfect start to the morning.

Everyone at the Carlyle was wonderful.  They did their absolute best at making my stay delightful.  The hotel itself is old New York from the elevators with the elevator boys to the doorman who is great with cabs, luggage, and directions.  I could not have picked a better place to stay.  I will be back!
