“If you’re staying here, you feel like you’ve made it,” explains John Hamm of The Carlyle, A Rosewood Hotel, located on Madison Avenue at 76th Street on the Upper East Side of New York City.

In Always at The Carlyle, a film directed by Matthew Miele, follow along as George Clooney, Anjelica Houston, Wes Anderson, Naomi Campbell, Anthony Bourdain, Vera Wang, and more share their affinity and untold tales of a hotel so storied, Princess Diana, Michael Jackson and Steve Jobs once rode up to their rooms together in a single elevator ride together.

According to the creators of the film (the team behind the fashion film, Scatter my Ashes at Bergdorf Goodman) the “walls of The Carlyle don’t talk…but they definitely whisper.” And these aforementioned celebs aren’t the only stand outs in Always at the Carlyle, which premieres next week.
