The taxi rushes through the New York City streets from Times Square to the Hotel Elysee on 54th & Madison. From lights, action, noise to a quiet area near some of the best shopping New York City has to offer.

Pulling up to the door a sharply dressed doorman opens my door and welcomes me to the Hotel Elysee. Asking if I need help with luggage I decline (I’m traveling light with only a backpack) and make my way into the elegant lobby.

There is no wait to check in and I find the front desk staff is excited to share details about the hotel. Everything from evening wine service to breakfast and, best of all, an upgrade to a Grand King Suite.

Walking through the stunning lobby I pass classic European art and period pieces which give the hotel a very glamorous feel.

Making my way under chandeliers and past silk furbished walls I arrive at my room. Stepping inside I’m delighted to find that the term Grand King Suite does not disappoint.

There are 700 square feet of pure luxury including a sitting area, kitchenette, separate bedroom, and bathroom.

This is exactly how one should stay when they visit New York City. I love that there is so much room to move about without feeling claustrophobic

After settling in I make my way to the wine and cheese reception that happens each evening. I’m greeted at the clubroom with an offer of wine.

After selecting an assortment of snacks I take my wine and find a great place to view the room.

 It is full of guests quietly conversing amongst themselves. The atmosphere is relaxing and I could sit here quietly reading a book from one of the many available, but Broadway is calling and I must make my leave.

I’m only one night at the Hotel Elysee so I make the best of it by giving myself permission to sleep in. After having a bit of a restful morning I force my way through my morning routine and back down to the club room to enjoy a continental breakfast.

Coffee is a must to fully get my day going and the Hotel Elysee coffee definitely rates high in my book.

Thankfully there is a 1p.m. checkout so I don’t have to rush to leave the hotel. Eventually, I say my goodbyes knowing that the Hotel Elysee stay will definitely remain a very fond memory of my trip to NYC.
