Fodor's Review

From the two-story lobby designed by David Rockwell to still-intact, original 1904 Beaux Arts details such as the stained-glass dome (created by workers from the Tiffany glass factory), a 40-foot ceiling in the lobby, and a soaring crystal chandelier, the Carlton is a refurbished gem. Rooms are small for the money—they start at 200 square feet—but make up for it with amenities and flair, including mahogany accents and free Wi-Fi. One snafu—the bathrooms, outfitted with swanky Molton Brown products, are underlit at best. Downstairs, the high-profile French restaurant Millesime has generated a following.
