“December in NY”
Reviewed 13 December 2013

We lucked out. The weather was mild and no rain. Love the breakfasts and late afternoon snacks. Front desk folks very helpful and professional. Ditto door men.

Only negative is the slow elevator, but, I guess there is no way to improve that.

Room Tip: Request one on the back side of the hotel - no street noise.

This is the second year my daughter and I have stayed at the Hotel Elysse for our annual Christmas trip to NY. The hotel is outstanding in every respect with a friendly and accommodating staff. The morning breakfast and afternoon wine reception, both consistently good, provided a great way to start and end a day of shopping and sightseeing. This is truly a gem in Midtown Manhatten.

Hotel Elysee is a small, comfortable hotel with old fashioned good manners on the part of the management and staff. We had three rooms- two Queens and one King at a very reasonable rate (for NYC). Included was breakfast and cocktail hour. Our rooms were very comfortable. My husband is very particular about pillows and found the ones at Hotel Elysee to be excellent. The location is perfect - we walked almost everywhere with ease- including the theater district SoHo and the Metropolitan Museum. The subway is close by and easy to access.

The deco is a bit weary in the public spaces but really the only reason I am giving a 4 not a 5 is that the heating system is old and the pipes clang loudly at strange times - which can disturb a good nights rest. Regardless of that issue, I would stay there again!

We loved this hotel. We had very large rooms with a separate dressing area - unusual for NYC. The rooms were warm, comfortable and quiet. There were up to 4 employees at the front desk so there was no wait for anything and always someone attending the front door. We valet parked our car and it was retrieved in minutes. The location is superb and we walked to everything including a broadway show. The jewel is the second floor library/eating space - comfy and cozy. There was food and drink at all times. They advertise continental breakfast , but it is a very large one with plenty to eat. The baked goods were fresh. Service, comfort and location are a premium here. We will definitely return.

Perfect for our four day visit. I iwill not rehash all the postives already mentioned for they are all true. I would like to especially thank Melly in the breakfast/wine reception area for being the friendliest, most competent and knowledgeable person with help, advice and conversation! All the staff was great, Melly just went over and above to answer questions etc.. Also, we had a probelm where the lock on our room door stopped functioning. In minutes we had hotel staff working on the problem and offering access to other rooms while this was being fixed. As were were having dinner inthe Monkey Bar they came and found us, provided updates and constantly checked on our well being. As the problem could not fixed immediately we were moved to a wonderful suite with terrace! My point is this......they cared! And kept us informed all along the way! This was excellent service and we will be back again to stay here on our next annual visit to New York,

I echo all the favorable reviews and can certainly recommend this hidden jewel. The continental breakfast, the all day accessibility to hot beverages and the early evening complimentary cheese, crackers and wine offerings were very much appreciated. It was so relaxing to have a lovely place to unwind from the hustle and bustle of the city. The staff was very attentive and accommodating especially the doormen. I shared my double room with 2 girlfriends and although it would have been tight quarters for a week it was fine for our short stay, In total there were 5 of us on our annual girls trip and it was unanimous that Hotel Elysee exceeded our expectations, We look forward to our return trip next December.
