luxury: noun lux·u·ry \ˈlək-sh(ə-)rē, -zh(ə-)rē\
Simple Definition of luxury: a condition or situation of great comfort, ease, and wealth
You didn’t need a dictionary to tell you that! But now that we’re all on the same page, let’s get back to the part about great comfort! The Staff at the Hotel Elysee pride themselves on offering each of our guests just that, great comfort. But, can you imagine great comfort in a sprawling suite complete with a full kitchen, dining table and over 900 square feet of space to spread out? Think about it! Each of the 3 beautifully appointed Presidential Suites have their own style and flavor. I can think of at least a dozen reasons to splurge on such luxury and elegance!
We’ve all heard that New York City is the city that never sleeps. Could it be because of all the bright lights that surround us throughout the night and into the wee hours of the morning? Times Square has always been the first to come to mind when people speak of the glow of Manhattan. It wasn’t until I moved into a quaint third floor walk up in Williamsburg that that conception had changed for me. The Empire State Building was right there, staring me in the face from my bedroom window. Her ever changing glow was intriguing and quickly became something I couldn’t wait to see every evening. Each combination of colors is lit to signify a holiday or special event. What an amazing way to let New Yorkers and honorary New Yorkers (tourists) in on each of these events.Continue Reading
Whether it’s your first time or your 50th time to New York, this city makes you feel the same magic with every visit. With its sea of yellow cabs, lights that never extinguish, and an unmatched energy from the hustle and bustle, NYC is unlike any city in the world. NYC has anything and everything to offer its visitors and residences from world-class shopping and museums to sporting events and Fortune 500 companies. Not to mention the universities, architecture, iconic monuments, filmmaking, and, of course, restaurants. Walking down the street and all the sudden looking up (or maybe you don’t know where to look because there is so much up and down!) and seeing the Empire State building, you get that excited feeling in the pit of your stomach because this is the stuff out of movies! It can also be overwhelming, thinking of everything that must be accomplished on your weekend trip to NYC, but there may be a few things you have never thought to try. We’ve asked the staff at Hotel Elysee for their favorite hidden gems around the city and complied a list of a few Secrets of New York that will spice up your trip!
