“Wonderful as always”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

The Hotel Elysee is our favourite boutique hotel in NY, not only for its charming old world flavour and superb location (close to MoMA), but especially for the gracious and pleasant and effective service provided by the very professional staff at the hotel, from the doormen to the front desk to the attendants in the breakfast and cocktail lounge. The concierge service at the front desk is terrific: they arranged theatre and musical tickets and restaurant reservations at extremely short notice. Magic.

We booked a suite at the Hotel Elysee for our honeymoon in snowy NYC. We loved our stay at the hotel, the staff were extremely friendly and there's something so relaxing about the hotel that is a welcome pleasure from the hustle and bustle of the city. We really enjoyed the freshly baked bagels at breakfast and the wine and cheese in the club room in the evenings. Our room was old style, but spotless and the attention to detail was fantastic. A special mention must go to the desk staff, we were so tired after our wedding that we did exactly what they told us to do in NY and from their 5 minute chat with us they gave us the perfect recommendations as to where to eat, shop and sightsee. I don't think this will be our last trip to the Elysee!

Decided on a last minute trip to NYC to attend Westminster Kennel Club Show. Had another excellent stay at the Hotel Elysee. I'm a regular although only 2-3 trips a year. The staff remembers and had a complimentary upgrade available. Nice to be acknowledged

I almost hate to tell everyone how much we love staying at The Elysee, and instead would like to keep this gem of a hotel our little secret. The location is perfect for a midtown or upper east and west side Manhattan visit. The rooms are lovely with a classic New York feel, and some even have unusual features such as a terrace overlooking 54th street or a solarium room. Charming. We especially love the breakfast room and the range of the continental breakfast itself, and of course who wouldn't love the evening cocktail hour? Staff is ultra professional but friendly as well. I can't say enough.

If you are looking for a European style boutique hotel that understands service and offers a very pleasing environment, look no further. My wife has stayed here several times and i joined her on this trip to see for myself what she has been talking about. She was right,,, as usual!

I really liked this hotel beacuse we felt very welcomed from the beginning until the day we left. The best thing was their service, everytime we passed the reception the reception guy or girl said hello, good evening, good morning, Mr & Mrs xxx, can I help you with something today, etc. I haven't experinced this before that almost everyone working at the hotel recognized us just after a few days of staying there. Another nice suprise was the breakfast, we were expecting something more simpler. Excellent location with a walking distance to the beautiful central park. Shops and restaurants is near by too. The only minus nyc hotels usually gets from me is that they are a bit shabby, but it didn't disturb me since we had clean linings everyday and our room was in general really nice. I will return to this hotel for sure and recommend others as well. Thank you for a marvellous stay!

The rooms are beautiful, staff warm and welcoming, location excellent and breakfast light but great variety. I am halfway through my stay here, and so far don't have anything but praise for the hotel. Highly recommend this full of character property.
