Rosewood Hotels & Resorts will take over the management of New York's legendary Hotel Carlyle following its sale to Maritz, Wolff & Company by the partnership that owned the hotel for more than 30 years.
"Rosewood and Maritz, Wolff & Co have the deepest respect for the legacy of The Carlyle," said Philip Maritz, president of Maritz, Wolff & Co and Rosewood chairman.
"No major changes are planned for this landmark. We will continue to enhance the hotel and the service as the current owners have done."
Rosewood has been selected to manage two exclusive resorts in the remote and picturesque Palau in the South Pacific.
The resorts will be built on a private, 12-acre island near Koror and on Malakal within the Caroline Islands of Micronesia, known for some of the best dive spots on earth.
A floating wilderness lodge, the King Pacific Lodge, on Princess Royal Island in northern British Columbia, has become the first property in Canada to join Rosewood.
Open annually from May to September, the King Pacific Lodge offers fly-fishing, kayaking, hiking and wildlife watching in pristine wilderness. The lodge has 17 luxury suites.

"Both Acqualina and Club Playa Carmel will be important additions to Rosewood's collection and mirror our mission to provide guests with the ultimate in discreet, personalised service in an environment that reflects, honours and embraces the local culture," said Rosewood president Jim Brown.
