Built in the 1920's, the Hotel Elysee is named for one of the finest French Restaurants of that era. Once a playground for the rich and eccentric, it has been home to movie stars, artists, writers and intellectuals. Luxurious yet intimate, it is an oasis of elegance and peace close to the vibrant heart of New York City. On the ground floor the hotel houses the Monkey Bar, a legendary New York night spot, that has been featured on both "Sex in the City" as well as "Man Men." Manhattan's Hotel Elysée has been home to the Monkey Bar NYC since it opened in the depths of the Great Depression, The Monkey Bar New York became known as “the place to go” especially for those who enjoyed off-color jokes and double-entendre songs spun by such performers as Johnny Payne (1934-1944) and Mel Martin (1945-1983). Starting out as just another dimly lit hotel piano bar with mirrored paneling, patrons started to mimic one another (“monkey see, monkey do”). The tiny room was formally named The monkey Bar in the early 1950’s when the mirrors came down and were replaced by wrap-around hand-painted murals of monkeys by caricaturist Charlie Wala.

Starting out as just another dimly lit hotel piano bar with mirrored paneling, patrons started to mimic one another (“monkey see, monkey do”). The tiny room was formally named The monkey Bar in the early 1950’s when the mirrors came down and were replaced by wrap-around hand-painted murals of monkeys by caricaturist Charlie Wala. The old murals depicted monkeys with decidedly human features performing stunts such as elephant riding, monkeys crouching under a Christmas tree, monkeys mixing up banana daiquiris for tough looking monkey-like customers, etc. In successive years, other artists have added to the tableau, keeping the Monkey Bar New York as polished as it always was in days gone by.

All of The New York Hotel Elysée’s guest rooms (87 rooms, 3 junior suites, 7 suites, 3 Premiere Suites) feature hair dryers, in-room safes, mini bars, complimentary high speed wireless Internet access, accommodating writing desk, two-line phones, iHome MP3 Dock / Alarm Clock Radio, voice mail, flat panel LCD televisions, plush cotton robes and a variety of Gilchrist and Soames bath amenities in our luxurious marble bathrooms. Each guest room has windows that open and individual air temperature control. Some rooms have unique features such as terraces, kitchenettes or solariums. All rooms are non-smoking. Mattresses tend to be firm, however guests are welcome to request a featherbed upon making their reservation, and will be provided based on availability.

Street Side Superior Rooms
All luxurious Street Side Superior Rooms are located on low floors and most often face the street. Spacious in comparison to most New York accommodations, Hotel Elysee guestrooms are approximately 300 square feet and include either a King or Queen sized bed. Street Side Superior rooms offer sunny views of 54th Street and are perfect for heavier sleepers or people used to regular city noise.

Deluxe Rooms
The Elysée features many beautifully appointed Deluxe Rooms with either a King or Queen bed and approximately 300 square feet in size. All luxurious Deluxe Rooms have windows that can open, marble bathrooms, writing desks, in-room safes, hanging closets and a sitting chair. Deluxe Rooms are located throughout the hotel in both the front and back of the building so if you have a preference to be street side for a view or enjoy a quieter room facing the back, just let us know and we will do our best to accommodate you.

Junior Suites

Some Suites have a small dining area and kitchenette. Suites are approximately 600 square feet and are located on both the front and back of the hotel.

Royal Suite
The Royal Suite boasts a spacious living room with a baby grand piano, a non-working fireplace and a round dining table able to accommodate six people. The fully equipped kitchen off the living room has a full size refrigerator, microwave, and a stove with four burners, large sink and sufficient counter space. The bedroom has a king size bed and an adjoining large marble bathroom, consisting of a separate shower and oversized bath tub. The Royal Suite is approximately 950 square feet and can be adjoined to the Deluxe Double room next door for additional sleeping space.

Parlor Suite

Best Rate Guarantee

Which New York hotels qualify for the NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee? Almost all of them! Just look for the Best Rate Guarantee Seal when you are searching for your New York hotel.

We stand behind your reservation and our Best Rate Guarantee.
Unlike other so called guarantees, the NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee
doesn't expire after 24 hours.

The NYC.com Best Rate Guarantee protects your wallet and takes the worry out of booking a hotel room. Because of the large volume of New York City lodging reservations we process, we are able to negotiate special rates with New York City hotels. All e-$aver Rate Hotel reservations booked through NYC.com are guaranteed to be the lowest rate available for that hotel. After you book with NYC.com, if you find a lower publicly available rate online for the same dates, hotel, and room category, we will match the price and refund you the difference.

And unlike other so called "Guarantees," we will match the price right up to the time of the hotel's cancella- tion deadline, whether that is three days after you made the booking or three months. So stop worrying and start booking.
