My wife, daughter and I stayed at the Elysee for 5 nights on the occasion of our daughter's 18th birthday. I saw the reviews on Trip Advisor and was delighted to find that they had suites that would accomodate the three of us. We stayed in a large suite on the 11th floor (Room 114 -- the biggest in the hotel I'm told), which had a large living room with a sofa bed. The master bedroom was spacious and was very quiet. The bathroom, although not large by any standard, was modern and very adequate. Our only wish would have been more counter space. There is also a small kitchenette, but we felt this was wasted space, and would be much better utilized as a second bathroom.
I had read about the complimentary wine and cheese between 5 and 8 pm and complimentary breakfast served in the library on the second floor. Let me tell you that both are done to a very high standard -- selection, presentation and service were outstanding. And the little things added a nice touch, such as the free newspapers,free wi-fi and classical music in the background.
The front desk staff were always helpful, whether it was restaurant suggestions or advice in getting around the city.
The Elysee is also in a perfect location on 54th Street, between Park and Madison -- close to great shopping, Central Park, good restaurants and only a couple of blocks from two different subway lines.
All in all, it offers tremendous value amid Old World charm. We'll be back.
