Chateau Elysee

Originally built on three acres of land, the garden at Chateau Elysee harkens back to its illustrious past. The small path and labyrinth provides a quiet place for contemplation in the middle of Hollywood.

Chateau Elysee better known to many A-list movie stars of the 1930s and 40s as the Manor was built for the convenience of Hollywood's acting community. The hotel was designed by architect Arthur Harvey. It is reminiscent of a 17th century French chateau. The period and style of architecture was popular in the early part of the 20th century.

Today, the gardens are a small but important part of the property. The chateau is open to the public for tours.
