I recently won a competition for a three night stay at the Carlyle in April. It is based on Madison avenue - perfect location with plenty of Taxi service nearby, central park literally a minutes walk away and the subway two blocks up on Lexington ave (a metro system that you can learn very quickly!)
Ideal for people with alot of cash as fashion boutiques are just around the corner but for the cash strapped you may have to walk further downtown!
Excellent view from my 12th floor room of the tops of buildings and the city scene below. 'Nice room' that I stayed in (room 1206) nothing wrong with it in the slightest - however, I am not sure whether it is because I won the room and therefore they might have given us the most basic available - but I would not pay c.$700 a night for it. Was nice though - with a kingsize bed and a chic bathroom with surround mirrors!
The staff were friendly enough - but I suggest that boils down to indevidual characterists - i.e. some of the porters would have a friendly chat with you in the "elevator" and others would merely mumble "hello" -- which is better than a kick in the teeth!
Ooh, don't be fooled, being a five star hotel you'd expect a swimming pool and jacuzzi -- they don't have anything like that. It's not essential anyway, but don't worry about assuming they would have a swimming pool and pack swim wear!
