Let me start by saying...when can I go back? Loved this place. First of all, the location is fantastic - between Park and Madison on 54 Street, near all of the stores, offices, Midtown sites that are on your list. The style of the hotel is "old fashioned" - but this works perfectly for me. It is charming, cozy, and elegant...and the service is exemplary, with all staff members "Johnny on the spot", and with perfect attitudes. The rooms are smallish, but very comfortable, with lovely beds and well-designed bathrooms. The buffet Continental breakfast is delightful - fresh baked goods, cereals, excellent coffee and teas, fresh fruits - and very pleasant atmosphere to boot, overlooking 54 Street. I did not have a chance to try the cocktail hour. The rates are high, but when you consider that you can walk to many destinations, or that they are a short taxi ride away, the extra $$$ is worth it.

Room Tip: We had a room on the back and it was very quiet.

This is our third stay at the Elysee and we just love it.
Staff are so helpful, friendly and obliging.
Love the facility of nibbles and wine at 5p.m. Lovely to meet your friends and relax.
Situation is excellent and really we can find no faults at all - try and we might!!!!
Would never stay anywhere else!

We have a 3 yr old and require a bit more space than most. We were sold the JNR suite and availability was short so we received the King suite. WOW for NYC.

Staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. Met my 3 yr old with a small stuffed toy that she is still toting around.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone. great spot and convenient.

Note to anyone staying in NYC... Rooms are small compared to any other city.

Room Tip: If you can afford it, go the JNR suite. !!!! Its not much more expensive than other standard hotel r...

I can attest to the other positive reviews. The location , breakfast, nightly wine, very helpful accommodating staff, quiet rooms for sleeping, nightly change of towels in the turn down service and 1oclock checkout are all the criteria that add to a wonderful stress free holiday in New York. Thank you to all the staff at Hotel Elysee. You are the role models for excellent customer service. We have booked again for next year!

Loved our recent stay - breakfast on Floor 2 every morning, NY Times to read piled up in the breakfast room, excellent location on the East side near Central Park and wonderful staff from the guys who man the doors to the wonderful young women on Floor 2 for both breakfast and wine and chefs in the afternoon.

Whenever I come to NYC I ALWAYS stay at the Elysee - it feels like home to me.

After having stayed at a few hotels in NYC where the atmosphere is either indifferent or stuffy, I was delighted by the friendly, warm, attentive and helpful staff at Hotel Elysee. I would come back and stay again, just to experience the great staff. But the good news is that the location was perfect for our touristy adventures, most of which we were able to do on foot, and room was comfortable, even spacious, which isn't always the case in NYC. Loved the breakfast and the afternoon wine and cheese and the cozy and charming atmosphere in general. Thank you to all the staff who helped make our 'sisters trip' so fun a few weeks ago! I would come back again and again. You do a great job!

Room Tip: For sisters, our room with two double beds was great. I loved the bed and the options for adding le...

The hotel was excellent value and well situated, the staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were adequate and clean. The lounge was always open with cookies and coffee and what a wonderful meeting place to meet friends and relatives at 6pm over a glass of wine, cheese and crackers. Did I forget to mention continental breakfast, EXCELLENT, all complimentary. If you want value for money stay here when you are in New York.

Room Tip: Higher Rooms have less A/C noise
