For the past 88 years, The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, has been the definition of class and a calling card for Manhattan's elegant Upper East Side. But while it has housed some of the world's most famous clientele, the stories within the walls of the hotel rarely leave the premises. Until now.

In Always at The Carlyle, writer/director Matthew Miele presents the untold stories and well-kept secrets of The Carlyle in a feature length documentary. It offers an exclusive and provocative peek into the pop culture history of the renowned hotel, all from the mouths of The Carlyle's own guests and employees.

George Clooney, Anjelica Huston, Tommy Lee Jones, Vera Wang, Anthony Bourdain, Roger Federer, Wes Anderson, Sofia Coppola, Jon Hamm, Lenny Kravitz, Naomi Campbell and Elaine Stritch join the more than 100 personalities sharing their favorite stories and unique insights in this exposé of New York City's legendary hotel.

  • 2 stars "Don't understand what is elegant about spending 90 minutes listening to a bunch of rich progressives go on about living a life style none of the rest of America can relate to while they are being served by a mostly minority staff trying to get by at 15.00 an hour in New York. I suppose a film like this might be considered acceptable among boomers but it is really hard to believe the filmmakers are that out of touch with a younger generation who see nothing grand or elegant about people who claim to be progressive who live like it is 1929."
  • 5 stars "The meeting of stylish old New York and new New York. I loved seeing Chris Gillespie, star of Bemelmans Bar, interviewed and at the piano. A really speedy 90 minutes!"
