I recently returned from a short business trip to New York City, and since I needed to be in mid-town, the Hotel Élysée was in a perfect location. The reviews were pretty consistently excellent so I decided to book a room. When I arrived, I was upgraded to a suite which was absolutely beautiful. This review would be 5 star but for one feature. It has been many many years since I was in a hotel where it was impossible to get a cup of coffee before 7:00 a.m. I know New Yorkers are not early birds, but travelers are from every where. I am used to getting up early, and particularly so when I have to give a presentation in the morning. Around 10:00 p.m. I realized there was no coffee maker in the room. That in and of itself is a real negative in my book. So I called the front desk and asked if room service could deliver coffee around 6:00 a.m. No, room service was not available before 7:00. I was told coffee was available with the continental breakfast, also beginning at 7:00. I know this is a small matter, but important to me as a traveler. If the hotel can update itself to accommodate a 21st century traveler, I'd be happy to go back. If not, I'll find another mid-town hotel.
