Hotel Elysee by Library Hotel Collection 4.0

Midtown East, New York City, New York
More like a French B&B than a Midtown East hotel, the 103-room Elysee boutique comes with large, unique rooms, elegant decor, and a colorful history; many recognizable names–Joe DiMaggio, Marlon Brando, Ava Gardner–have called Hotel Elysee home, but possibly the most notable resident is playwright Tennessee Williams, who lived in the hotel for fifteen years until his death in 1983. Williams wrote all of his later works in his suite (named the Sunset Suite in his honor) and guests were known to complain that they could hear his typing late into the night.
