This is the last day at the Carlyle for the much-loved bellman, Alfredo Tavarez. Most would agree the magic of the Carlyle is more than a beautiful historic building, splendid tradition, and the perfect location on the Upper East Side. The magic of the Carlyle Hotel in New York is the staff that has been at the hotel for decades. Here one finds staff that is professional, engaging, serious, and joyful. From the doorman’s first greeting to the bellman saying hello and helping you with your luggage, to Mabrouk, the Mayor of the Gallery, one feels like they have come home even if one is an infrequent guest. On my last trip to New York, I was told the bellman Alfredo Tavarez was retiring after 21 years. Discovering he was departing, I asked him if I could have a picture taken with him that I could post on his last day at the Carlyle. I wanted to pay a personal tribute to this quiet man with a sweet engaging smile who for 21 years was always making people happy and bringing joy to their lives. I would like to join so many others with a heartfelt thank you to Alfredo Tavarez and wish him much happiness in the future. *CarlyleDeparture
