If you ever find yourself watching an episode of Mad Men, hoping you might magically be sucked into the television and transported to 1960s New York City, now's your chance. The landmark Hotel Elysee (located just off Madison Avenue) recently introduced a special Mad Men package. When you get to your hotel suite, you'll find a dozen red roses, strawberries, and a box of Leonidas chocolates. After putting on your best retro-inspired outfits, head down to the lobby and into the famed Monkey Bar, which originally opened in 1932 (Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter recently refurbished the space, but you can still picture Don Draper & Co. downing martinis in a corner booth). The package includes two complimentary cocktails, and, if you stay for dinner, 10 percent off your check.
The Mad Men package (available through 9/8/11) starts at $469, and also includes a Continental breakfast served daily in the club room, complimentary daily newspapers, cookies, fresh fruit, coffees and teas available throughout the day, an evening reception including Prosecco, fine wines, imported and domestic cheese and hors d'oeuvres (weekdays from 5 to 8 p.m.), complimentary wireless high-speed Internet access, and daily passes to the nearby New York Sports Club ($30 per person value). To book, call 212-753-1066 or visit elyseehotel.com. And for more Mad Men-inspired ideas of what to do in New York City, click here. —Lauren Matthews, editor, Brides New York
