I liked the fact that it was in a residential area so you could walk to the local bakery, Starbucks, etc. Staff was excellent and there was a restaurant in the hotel that was fantastic.

I was late and wet getting to hotel & greeted by friendly attendant. I love the breakfast coffee and afternoon wine treat. I have been staying at the hotel once a year. I love the improvements. Thanks

My stay at the hotel was excellent. The staff was helpful and attentive, and the location was perfect for my needs, with everything I needed to do in short walking distance of the hotel. I enjoyed my stay and will definitely consider staying there again on my next visit.

Things I liked and things I didn't...

I really wanted to love this hotel. The location was excellent, the staff were great, and the building was very beautiful. The Riggsby also had really good food--probably the best wedge salad I've ever had. Overall, it was worth the stay. Here are the things I liked: the pillows were comfortable, the lighting was better than most hotels, and the elevators were quick and readily available (not always the case in older buildings). The room was a decent size for a downtown location and the shower was easy to figure out and had ample hot water. Also, you could text the front desk for assistance or housekeeping needs, which was very convenient. But there are a few things I wish were different about The Carlyle. First, I really did not like the memory foam mattress. It was too warm and not quite comfortable enough for me. Another odd feature was the storage. There was very little space to store anything behind doors and drawers, leaving our room feeling cluttered the entire week. Similarly, the towels were on an open shelf below the sink, which also happened to be next to the toilet...not exactly a place I'd expect to find clean towels. Also, the hotel guide stated they had bluetooth speakers available to borrow; however, the speaker we got did not work and there seemed to be little staff understanding of how to use them. With a few small tweaks, The Carlyle could be a truly special hotel.
