For over 87 years, The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel has been a classic landmark of Manhattan’s elegant Upper East Side. It has been revered as a destination for the discerning traveler, as well as a favorite haunt for the most prominent residents of New York City. Writer/Director Matthew Miele (Scatter My Ashes at Bergdorf’s, Crazy About Tiffany’s and Harry Benson: Shoot First) is now telling the story of The Carlyle in a feature length documentary to be released worldwide in 2018.
In production for over four years, Always at The Carlyle
