At the corner of Madison Avenue and 76th street sits The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, built before the depression as a hotel with residential units, this style was in line with the new “skyscraper living” becoming more fashionable among the wealthy. Post-WWII the hotel truly attained its high society status. President Truman was the first President to visit The Carlyle, he was followed by every President through Clinton. JFK owned an apartment on the 34th floor for the last ten years of his life. Marilyn Monroe is rumored to have visited him there.
The Carlyle’s legendary reputation is not just built on the hotel’s exceptional service but also on the legendary performers regularly featured in the Café Carlyle. The café has played host to famous jazz musicians including George Feyer and Bobby Short, Woody Allen and his jazz band and contemporary performers such as Judy Collins, Sutton Foster, and Alan Cumming.
AN ICONIC BEAUTY EXPERIENCE
On the 3rd floor of The Carlyle sits another legendary destination, the luxurious Sisley-Paris Spa. Featuring a variety of indulgent and effective facial and body treatments to address every skin concern, this calming oasis is a well-appointed, beauty destination for New York’s most savvy.
Perhaps one of the most well known treatments is the Phyto-Aromatic Replumping Youth Facial with Rose, which uses Sisley’s cult-status Black Rose products. The incredible nourishing and anti-aging properties of the Black Rose have made Black Rose Cream Mask and Black Rose Precious Face Oil global best-sellers for the brand. This year, a new icon joined the collection and the youth-enhancing facial: Black Rose Rose Skin Infusion Cream. This new day and night cream formula includes multiple extracts of the Black Rose, two other roses and additional plant-based active ingredients to deliver visibly smoother and more radiant skin.
Two iconic experiences at one New York City address. As the legendary and iconic gossip columnist, Cindy Adams, would say:
“Only in New York, kids. Only in New York”
