We travelled to New York last September to get married and we booked this hotel a year earlier after reading the many impressive reviews. From our first emails with manager John Avina, we were really impressed by his friendliness and professionalism. On arrival this was matched by all staff - we didn’t encountered one unfriendly person during our entire stay from house-keeping, the 2nd floor lounge staff and all on reception, who went out of their way to make our stay special.
Our room was beautiful - large, romantic and elegant with a lovely fireplace! There was complimentary champagne and chocolates waiting in our room on arrival, to congratulate us on our upcoming wedding. Bathroom was on the small side but there was a great shower and separate bathtub which was more important to me.
The breakfast was excellent and constantly re-filled to ensure nothing ran out, there was a great choice which set us up for the day ahead. Also great was the complimentary cheese and wine every evening in the lovely comfortable lounge area which we enjoyed so much before heading out to meet up with our families.
The hotel is centrally located in Midtown but we did not have any trouble with noise although we were staying on a higher floor.
I would LOVE to stay here again and would highly recommend the Elysee for those seeking a more intimate and friendly experience rather than the big impersonal chain hotels. It was fabulous choice for our special trip, thank you to all at the Elysee.
