Hotel Elysee by Library Hotel Collection
Ranked #10 of 469 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 December 2013

This hotel has European elegance. It has the ambiance of a private club that is not pretentious. The second floor lounge is comfortable any time of day. The service is excellent. The hotel bar is The Monkey Bar and it is great fun. Many regulars and locals. Great conversation and congenial bartenders.

This was first time for me to stay in a smaller boutique hotel and it was a different experience from what I am used to but I would rank it high overall. The staff was very accommodating and the rooms were clean and quiet. We took advantage of the morning breakfasts everday but, as this was a popular feature, seats for the four of us traveling together weren't always readily available. Also, for future guests, the elevator was VERY slow so build time into schedule for this. The location was excellent.

First time staying at this Hotel, not disappointed. Staff extremely friendly, room very clean, warm and nicely decorated. Hotel location great. The perks given with the wine and cheese, and breakfast were exceptional. Staff assigned to this task extremely professional, friendly and catering. Having these amenities were greatly appreciated and makes this hotel a standout. Highly recommend and plan on staying here again when we return to NYC

This hotel manages to deliver personal service to an excellent standard. It is hardly surprising that the hotel was populated with returning customers.
I would be happy to recommend this hotel to anyone looking for well positioned accommodation in New York.

We arrived on thanksgiving for a four night visit and found the hotel was just as described by other reviewers. Really nice sized room by New York standards, comfortable bed and relaxed public spaces. The afternoon tea and evening cheese and wine is a nice touch. Just 2 blocks back from 5th Avenue (Saks). Have already recommended to some friends planning to visit New York.

The three of us arrived pre-Christmas in NYC to enjoy 5 days at Elysée. We were once again treated to excellent service from the front desk to room service, wonderful European style decor and ambience, wine and delicacies in the late afternoon and of course, a most relaxing, healthy breakfast. This was our second visit at Elysée and plan a repeat visit next year or sooner. Outstanding location, great shopping, wonderful restaurants close by (Tao, Fig and Ollive, etc) and sites (MOMA). Book early, book frequently, we're sure you'll enjoy your stay as much as we did.

Hard to add much to the so many positive reviews here already - that is why we chose the Elysee and the reviews were accurate. We had a great three day stay in a quiet and spacious room on the eleventh floor. We made great use of the comfortable club room for an excellent breakfast and a relaxing drink at the end of the day. The hotel's location was excellent - easy walk for midtown attractions and close to subway stations for uptown/downtown. A great find and we will be back.
