“Our Favorite place to stay in NYC!”
Reviewed 27 February 2014

We adore the Elysee and its staff. The staff are wonderful! Numerous times they have made our family/business trips so easy. The front desk is sharp and the breakfast girls are delightful! The Rooms are spacious, lovely and the bedding so comfortable. Super sheets! The Elysee has to be the best value in NYC. We've stayed in much more expensive boutique hotels in the upper east side because with other family members and each time we found ourselves wishing we were back "home" at The Elysee! We only wish we could buy an apartment there!

We recently stayed at the Hotel Elysee for the third time. If you like small, elegant and very personal hotels, this is definitely a hotel to experience. From the doormen to the front desk, the personnel are friendly and knowledgeable. I called the desk in advance for restaurant recommendations, and was given a wide range of excellent options, all within walking distance. The rooms are small, but well furnished and clean, with very comfortable beds. WiFi coverage is free and strong.

One of the nicest parts of the hotel is the free and well stocked wine and cheese reception every night. Excellent selections of wine and proseco are available, as is a nice array of cheeses, nuts, fruits and vegetables. This really adds a touch of class to the experience. We had a guest come up to meet us prior to coming out to dinner, and that gave us a great way to relax and talk prior to our evening out. The same lounge converts to a breakfast area in the morning, with a nice array of breakfast options.

I would recommend getting a room in the back, as the front street can be very noisy. We did not have any noise facing the rear of the hotel.

All in all, this is an excellent choice for a stay in NYC.

We stayed in a King Suite for 3 nights, facing the street. We were three adults. We took my daughter here for her 22nd birthday.
We've been to NYC several times, but this was our first stay at this hotel.
Overall, it was a lovely stay and we would return here for sure.

The room was plenty large for the 3 of us. The bed was comfy and had really nice linen. The sofa bed was a tad less comfy and a bit tired looking, but still had nice linen,and was done up for us every might by the turn down person.
The little kitchen area hidden away was a pleasant surprise. The refrigerator worked great. It didn't just keep things cool, it was COLD, like a refrigerator is supposed to work.

The lounge area on the second floor is magnificent. You don't see this in NYC! Plenty of yummy food and beverages to chose from, and excellent service.

The front desk people were very helpful with directions, recommendations etc. ALL the staff here was super friendly and nice.

Pretty fresh flower arrangements were a nice touch.

Free wifi worked great.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions about this great hotel. More than happy to help a fellow traveler.

My wife and I stay at the Elysee when we travel to NYC. Here is a short list of the things we like the best:

1. Service - staff is just right. Accommodating and helpful but not overbearing. Just right, that is.
2. Building - classic and in good shape.
3. Rooms - REALLY NICE! This time around we booked a king suite and it was perfect. (Tip - front of the hotel has the views, back of the hotel is peacefully quiet.)
4. Location - close to the theater district. We were visiting to see After Midnight and it was just the right distance for walking. Nerai restaurant 20 steps from the front door of the hotel is great. neo-Greek Mediterranean. Highly recommended.
5. Transportation - gotta love the E train for running downtown and departing from Penn Station. Just a 5 minute walk to the E train station.

We love the Elysee! Thanks!

Room Tip: Spring for suite - you'll feel like royalty! Like I said - front of the hotel has the views, bac...

We stay at the Hotel Elysee once or twice a year and have been doing this for quite a number of years. The staff is friendly; the rooms are wonderful; the complimentary wine and cheese each afternoon is a welcome treat; and breakfast is simple but satisfying. The location of the Hotel Elysee is perfect! If you like to walk, just about anything in Manhattan is a reasonable walk. I highly recommend the Hotel Elysee.

Have recommended this hotel to all our friends and it is truly a find and the best buy in NYC! Already planning our next visit.

My daughter and I spent three nights at the Élysée and felt very comfortable. The continental breakfast (they have hard boiled eggs, too) was a perfect start and the all-day cookies, beverages and fruit were welcome. These are served in the warm, inviting Club Room overlooking 54th Street. In the evening, the wine and cheese in the Club Room set us up nicely for an early play, after which we went to dinner. Breakfast and the evening wine and cheese were included in our room rate.

I recommend selecting a high floor as noise was audible but not enough to disturb us. Our room had a balcony which was not so well utilized in February but allowed lots of light into the room, which was furnished with eclectic but slightly worn antiques...genteel but not offputting. The room and bathroom were very clean. The only incident was loss of heat overnight, which was rectified by our return later in the day. The front desk staff was very helpful. The owner even offered us a lift as we waited for a cab at a busy time (thank you) but we were heading a different way. I would return.

Room Tip: High floor, rooms with balcony are light and would be very pleasant in summer.
