Throughout the years, as proprietors and supervisors went back and forth, the Carlyle built up a world class, if somewhat stodgy, notoriety, pulling in an undeniable customers, including Ingrid Bergman, George Gershwin, Elizabeth Taylor, Princess Diana, and Jack Nicholson. Another narrative, Only at the Carlyle, out ahead of schedule one year from now, figures out how to allude to a portion of the lodging's juiciest stories while as yet keeping its visitors' privileged insights.

Until my stay, everyone except me. In the lift, my first night: a flawless youthful combine - she in a white jumpsuit, he in a coat with a pocket cloth - who welcomed our semi-calm gathering to share a jug of champagne in their suite. My companions, an exquisite blonde comic and her similarly beguiling spouse, had gone along with me before in the night for drinks at Bemelmans, the Carlyle's renowned worldwide bar, where we had all been tricked by the likeness of martinis to water.
