Photo of Hotel Elysee

“The Elysee, formerly a host to Manhattan's literary elite, has retained its iconic old world charm. The suites feature French style furnishings, rich fabrics and plush carpets. The Monkey Bar has become one of Midtown's most iconic and hip bars. Classy, elegant and intimate.”

Hotel Review

Located in the bustling heart of mid-town Manhattan, this historic hotel has recently been renovated but has managed to maintain its old world charm and low-key graciousness. First opened in 1926, The Hotel Elysee was home for many well-known literary guests including Tennessee Williams who lived here during his final years. Even if you’re not staying here, check out the Monkey Bar.
