The Hotel Elysee offers its guests perhaps the most outstanding and desirable location in New York City. Situated on East 54th Street, it is within walking distance of many mid-town corporate headquarters, cultural landmarks such as the Museum of Modern Art, and some of the most outstanding restaurants and shops in New York. In addition to its amenities, one-of-a-kind guest rooms and beautiful appointments throughout, the Hotel Elysee is unlike any other hotel in midtown Manhattan offering the comforts and services of a luxury hotel in a setting that has the charm and privacy of a beautiful country inn. The Hotel Elysee features 86 meticulously renovated rooms, three junior suites, and eleven suites, many with terraces, kitchens or solariums - all with marble bathrooms. A vital part of the New York scene since the 1930s, the Hotel Elysee has been home to privacy-seeking celebrities from the stage, screen and world of letters - including Tennessee Williams, Ava Gardner, Joe Dimaggio, Vladimir Horowitz, Marlon Brando, the Gish sisters, Dame Margot Fontayn, Harold Robbins, and many others. Hotel Elysee guests enjoy complimentary high-speed wireless internet access in all guestrooms and throughout the hotel. In the Club Room, guests begin their day with a complimentary deluxe Continental breakfast buffet including fresh fruits, pastries, muffins, bagels, cereals and boiled eggs. The Club Room remains open all day serving freshly brewed espresso, cappuccino, latte, coffee and tea with cookies and fresh fruit - all complimentary. Monday-Friday evenings, Elysee guests may enjoy complimentary wine and hors d'oeurves from 5 - 8 PM. A complimentary computer station is available in the Library as well as complimentary Wi-Fi. Conceived in 1926 as a European-style hotel for the carriage trade and named after an upscale French restaurant of the 1920's, the Hotel Elysee still reflects the old-world charisma of that era. After its construction, the hotel quickly became a playground for the rich and eccentric; a perfect romping ground for movie stars, artists, writers and intellectuals. Still an oasis of grace and elegance in the vibrant heart of New York City, the Hotel Elysee has preserved the intimacy with which it started but, at the same time, has nurtured a sense of modernity as time has progressed.
