“Beautiful unique hotel in the heart of Midtown”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 March 2014

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.

My husband and I stayed at Hotel Elysee this past weekend. What a gem! The staff was outstanding in a friendly manner, always with a quick, genuine smile. I got the impression they truly liked working at the hotel. The breakfast and mid-afternoon hors d'oeuvres and beverages, made this an even better value. We stayed in a suite which was lovely - well appointed, spotless and more square footage you can ever expect from a city hotel. They monkey bar and restaurant was an unexpected find as well. Suburb quality and the harvest punch is to die for!
Great job Hotel Elysee...you will see us again and again. Keep up the great work.

The staff were a credit to the hotel, both the front of house and the team running breakfast. Always helpful and friendly without being over familiar the staff were good. Breakfast was good and there was plenty of choice.
If I'm honest the room was a little tired but I had taken a special offer from tripadvisor that meant it was $200 per night. At that level, the hotel was excellent value in a great location. The gym system works well through vouchers for NY Sports Clubs. A minor grumble was the wifi in room 74 which was intermittent.
Other than that, a great team, great location, good value and good hotel. Certainly better than the Waldorf.

We returned to the Hotel Elysee 20 years afar our first visit. It is a delightful boutique hotel. My only suggestion - and it is minor - would be to add some furniture and dressing to the lobby. The room is spacious and very nice. Location is easy and close to most tourist interests. Only the Hotel Kepler is Paris exceeds the Elysee.

Room Tip: Evening wine and cheese is a wonderful part of the day.

My wife and I loved our stay at Hotel Elysee. Everyone at the hotel could not have been more hospitable, gracious and kind. From the moment we arrived it was a magical experience. The room upgrade was a stunning surprise and contributed greatly to make our honeymoon truly memorable. The continental breakfast and afternoon wine and hor d'oeuvres were much enjoyed as was our dinners at the Monkey Bar. We will definitely be back for another stay very soon.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a room on an upper floor it will be quieter.

Wonderful smaller hotel with a friendly staff. We loved the location, away from the madness of mid-town, but close to everything. Great shops, walking distance to MOMA, and many other places. The room was spacious and comfortable, bathroom a bit small but had all the amenities we needed. Our rate included cocktails and snacks in the evening, a nice breakfast in the morning, free WIFI, and affordable parking. Not many places in NYC like this!
We will definitely return!

Room Tip: We had a less expensive rate, because we opted to stay on the 6th floor, street front. I put on my...

Superb location, staff and accommodation. What else can you ask for?The fact that the breakfast and afternoon snacks and wine are included in the price make this hotel evenmore intereseting. We plan to return there again in the near future.
