Our second stay here. Fantastic location! Walking distance to Central Park, Rockefeller Center, 5th & Park Avenues. Good value: room included breakfast and all-day use of lounge with coffee service and noshes. Rooms are quiet, comfortable, clean, unpretentious and traditional - we feel at home here. Wonderful beds. Great night sleep. Service is outstanding -- the staff are consistently attentive and helpful. They go out of their way to make your stay the best. Our 5-star rating reflects the fact that, in addition to their usual wonderfulness, they upgraded us to a Junior Suite that was enormous! Hotel Elysee provides an oasis of gracious comfort in the middle of Manhattan. We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: If anything isn't to your satisfaction, let them know (nicely) and they'll look after you. W...

Had a awesome stay...check in was a breeze, room was cozy and clean, free wifi and great location. They have a free breakfast in the mornings and in the evenings there is wine, cheese and snacks ...both served in the comfortable club room. It's a great place to get your day planned or unwind after a grueling day of sightseeing. The theater district, central park, MOMA...all within walking distance. Great resturants in the neighborhood as well. You'll have to try out the Monkey Bar right there at the hotel...a hidden gem. The staff was very attentive and proactive...there is no reason for me to shop for a hotel on my next visit to NY...Hotel Elysee is now my "go to" hotel!

Room Tip: We have stayed in a room in the back and on the street (front). The rooms in the back are quieter a...

Wonderful stay. Perfect location, in the heart of Midtown, providing a quiet oasis, within walking distance of MOMA, Broadway, great restaurants and shopping. Wonderful European charm. Amazing second floor common area serving nice breakfast, as well as, a wine and cheese hour, a welcoming way to start and end your day in the city. The rooms have an old world charm. Loved the grey marble bathroom. If you can't go to Paris, savor a taste of it in Midtown, and, stay at this boutique Hotel. Nothing pretentious, everything tastefully done. Dining tip: Cellini, is an excellent Italian restaurant across the street serving quick lunches, and, wonderful dinners, too. Although it's a bit touristy, the 2 1/2 hour circle line tour is great way to understand the geography and scope of Manhattan. If you're trying to get last minute tickets to Broadway Shows, get to the theater box office when it opens the morning of the performance for the best seats. Caramel pecan cheesecake at Magnolia Bakery in Bloomingdales is worth carrying back to enjoy with your coffee at Hotel Elysee!

Room Tip: we were literally right next to the elevator and heard no noise at all. Never bothered looking out...

While I love NYC,I always have trouble sleeping due to street house. Onto in this charming hotel. Rooms are quaint and quiet. Continental breakfast included. Also wine and appetizers in evening. Lovely library/ lounge area in case you don't want to be stuck in room. Great location. Immediately adjacent to The Monkey Bar.

Pros: excellent complimentary breakfast, free wifi, excellent comfort
Cons: costly $$$ (money over value)

I've booked a two night stay (during my June 2014 reading week) at Hotel Elysee base on the positive reviews on Tripadvisor. Hotel Elysee is a small luxury hotel that offers free Wifi throughout the building. On both mornings I enjoyed their excellent breakfast; I was also delighted with the staff's warm and friendly service.

The hotel was very clean, the king-sized bed was extremely cozy (I wanted to stay in bed and not go home), excellent shower.

The Hotel is walking distance to the MOMA and 5th Ave. (great for shopping), there are some classy restaurants around the area as well.

For people with cars, there is a parking garage right next to the hotel. Side note - (separate from the hotel) my mother's car suffered some light scratches from the parking services.

There is a bit of walking to the closest subway.

Overall, a great experience! :)

This wonderful hotel offers a sanctuary from the madness that is Manhattan. The style is elegant Parisian and the rooms are tastefully furnished.

It has an excellent location, very close to Madision, 5th and the MOMA and within easy walking distance of Times Square, Broadway, the Rockerfeller Center, Radio City and Carnegie Hall.

The staff is very friendly and helpful and the complimentary breakfasts and hors d'oeuvres, served in the lounge and library, are simply wonderful. The Wi-Fi works well in the rooms and there's a computer and printer if you need to print boarding passes.

Happy to confirm that it's still as good as on our first visit in 2006.

I traveled with my wife and kids to New York and stayed on a hotel on 50th. We had a 50th anniversary celebration dinner that was a surprise to my wife. That very morning it struck to me the idea to take her to another hotel (no kids). I walked in the Hotel Elysee hoping there would be rooms available. Fortunately there was, so I reserved for that special night. The front desk guys were very attentive and helpful. I asked also that they arrange the room with flowers and champagne.

When we arrived close to midnight, we were pleasantly surprised by the decor of the very spacious room, Flowers and champagne were there, as well as a greeting card from the manager.

The room is definitely much larger than the average NYC Midtown room size. Bed, pillows and sheets were very confortable. Complimentary continental breakfast was very good, also better than many. The personnel at the breakfast lounge were also very attentive and kind.

Next time I come to NYC with my wife I will look for staying here.

Thanks to all the Hotel Elysee staff for their professionalism and going beyond our expectations in such a special night.
