U.S. News Review

At first glance, you might miss the Hotel Elysée amid the graceful, towering buildings that surround it. But this 1920s-era boutique hotel done up in French-country design is not to be missed. For decades this fashionable boutique has served as the place to see-and-be-seen, playing host to legendary artists, such as playwright Tennessee Williams and soprano Maria Callas. Many modern-day guests have positive things to say too, highlighting the Elysée's convenient Midtown location and its quaint ambience — from complimentary continental breakfast in the mornings to free wine and cheese in the afternoons. Previous visitors also praise the elegant accommodations, which feature extra touches like Gilchrist & Soames bath products, plush cotton bathrobes and free Wi-Fi. Some recent visitors go as far as to say the hotel feels like a slice of Paris — without the jetlag. Another crowd-pleaser: the hotel's ultra-trendy Monkey Bar, as well as the sophisticated Club Room.
