“NYC Gem of a Hotel”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

The staff at the Hotel Elysee is always very accommodating. They all go out of their way to be of assistance to their guests. Terrific location to enjoy all that NYC has to offer. The hotel club room is available to all hotel guests and a nice spot to enjoy a quite cup of coffee and read the newspapers in the morning.

The Elysee is one of our favorite hotels in NYC. The location, amenities, staff, and decor make it stand out in a city full of fine hotels. Close to shopping, Central Park, the MoMA, and lots of restaurants. The breakfast every morning is lovely, as is the wine and cheese in the evening. And you have to go to the Monkey Bar for drinks at least once in your life!

We stay here every time we come to NYC and it never disappoints. Like returning to a more personal hospitable era in the city. Service is attentive, location excellent and it's so nice to enjoy breakfast there before heading out for the day.

My son and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Elysee Hotel. Besides the convenient location, friendly staff, and lovely room, we were able to really appreciate and relax in the living room designed for complimentary breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese in the afternoon. I can't recommend this hotel enough, we will go back again and again and again!

Hotel Eysee is a charming, beautiful hotel in an excellent location in Manhattan. Staff goes out of their way to let you know they are always available. Wine and cheese as well as breakfast included are just added benefits. The room was very comfortable and clean.

We were delighted with the Hotel Élysée. Warm, friendly and accommodating staff. European charm. Delicious continental breakfast and wine/cheese evening reception. Bedroom and bathroom were very clean and pleasant. Great location for sight-seeing and theater. We will definitely stay at the Hotel Élysée if we return to New York.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, choose a room on the back of the hotel. The street noise is disturbing...

I have been enjoying the Hotel Elysee for over 30 years and try to stay there whenever I can. The rooms are unique (I 've had one with a porch, one that was simply enormous, a lovely suite), the service is superb, and it is difficult to fathom a hotel of its value which includes a large breakfast buffet AND a complimentary wine and cheese happy hour in its daily rate. Its location makes it convenient to both the East and West side and the subway around the corner gets you downtown in minutes. I simply love the Elysee.

Dear Jacqui R,

We were all pleased to read your review and we were happy to hear you enjoyed your most recent stay. Thank you for mentioning the various rooms you had and how each can be very different. Most importantly, thank you for mentioning the convenience of our location. You are correct, we are within walking distance of many of the storied east side museums, restaurants and department stores. Also, we are within walking distance of many Broadway venues and all downtown locations can be reached by taking the Subway lines E and M right around the corner from our entrance or the 6, two short blocks away. Already, we look forward to welcoming you back and we hope it won't be too long before your next visit.

Sincerely,

John Avina
General Manager
