Since its opening in 1930, The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel has celebrated the rich culture of New York City, allowing guests to experience the many facets of Manhattan. Art has always been an integral part of life at The Carlyle, with murals by Ludwig Bemelmans, and performances by such legendary entertainers as George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Bobby Short. This summer, The Carlyle will continue this tradition by celebrating the arrival of one of the most highly anticipated art exhibitions in years – The New York City Waterfalls – offering hotel guests a special Waterfall Journey Daily Package for Two.
From late June to mid-October, inspiration and innovation will take new form in New York City with a monumental scale public art installation conceived by the Danish/Icelandic artist Olafur Eliasson. The artist will be creating four 90 to 120 foot high waterfall displays at four points along the East River; at the Brooklyn anchorage of the Brooklyn Bridge, between Piers 4 and 5 in Brooklyn, at Pier 35 and on the north shore of Governors Island. The waterfalls will flow daily from 7am to 10pm and be lit after sunset, visible from multiple vantage points in New York City.
The Waterfall Journey package will provide hotel guests with the opportunity to see New York City and the exquisite waterfalls in style. Sophisticated travelers will enjoy a lavish buffet breakfast daily in the luxurious Carlyle Restaurant after which they will be taken by private towncar to and from Pier 16 where they will enjoy a one hour cruise to view the New York City Waterfalls. This dedicated boat journey will provide up-close views of the waterfalls and showcase the revitalization of New York City’s waterfront. After experiencing this magnificent art exhibit, hotel guests will expand their cultural horizons even further in the legendary Bemelmans Bar. Enjoying complimentary signature cocktails for two, they will experience the finest jazz performances by Loston Harris while ensconced by celebrated murals by Ludwig Bemelmans.
The Waterfall Journey package includes luxury accommodations in a guest room or suite, daily buffet breakfast in the Carlyle Restaurant, private towncar transportation between the hotel and Pier 16, a one hour cruise to view the New York City Waterfalls, and complimentary coverage charge and signature cocktails for two in Bemelmans Bar. The package starts at $650.00, and is valid through October.
