My husband and I spent this past weekend at the hotel. We found the hotel through tripadvisor and read the reviews prior to booking. It was a most wonderful experience.

We booked a queen room but was upgraded to a king supreme on the 12th floor. It never, ever felt like staying in a hotel. The room was beyond gorgeous, quiet and so very relaxing.

As great as the room was, the staff is even better. I can not say enough about them. They made staying there a delight. It is truly a memorable experience. We hope to return soon.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 12th floor. Very, very quiet.

If you are looking for a great place to call home while in New York, put this on your list because it really does feel like home. That said, they have managed to make you feel like you are at home while making sure things run in a professional way. And that is what keeps us going back

I have chosen this hotel based greatly in visitors opinions. It proved to be an excellent choice. It is a charming, European classic- style hotel with an ear of elegance. The breakfast and the complimentary cheese & wine every evening were very appreciated. The room was spacious with pleasant pastel colors and the quality of bed's linen unforgettable. It was like laying in an airy cloud. Very polite and efficient receptionists eager to offer their assistance. The small size of the hotel creates the feeling of being in a private mansion, and that was very welcomed in comparison with the impersonal style of big hotels. Yes, Elysse was a perfect choice.
The only difficulty we had was with the fixed water faucet which makes it very difficult to use when you want to take a shοwer.

We found Hotel Elysee via tripadvisor and based our choice on all the great reviews. We were not disappointed! The staff was friendly, professional, helpful and unpretentious. Our room was particularly lovely; large, clean and pretty. We faced the rear of the hotel (they had the good sense to frost over the windows). Even so, we were surprised at how amazingly quiet it was, as in silent! The Monkey Bar, next door and attached to the hotel, was a bonus treat. The location of the hotel is within walking distance of shopping, museums, Central Park and Rockefeller Center. We loved the "Old New York" feel of it all and look forward to returning soon.

I really enjoyed my 3 night stay at this hotel! The rooms were spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The Monkey Bar was FABULOUS! So many celebrities have eaten there and the service was great! The hotel made me feel really safe and location was very close to many stores that I enjoyed. I really enjoyed it here!

The Elysee Hotel is like a comfortable pair of slippers. There may be newer or better ones but somehow these do just fine. You get a lot for your (New York hotel) money. A good breakfast in the club room and from 5pm onwards little nibbles with your glass of wine. The reception staff always eager to help and advise, and the position, 54th between Madison and Park, is ideal. It is a little tired in places and the bathroom storage could be improved upon, but we still love coming back, a bit like home really.

My wife and I stayed a few nights when our son was graduating from Columbia University. The hotel was out of the extreme hubbub of the city yet close to everything. The staff was superb, the hotel was spotless, the atmosphere was sophisticated. The Monkey Bar was classic Mad Men New York. We will definitely return.
