5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2010

All the staff members were extremely helpful and nice. Excellent breakfast and nightly wine and snacks. Small beautifully kept-a quaint but luxurious hotel.

On a friend's recommendation, we spent our anniversary weekend here. The location was prime, the staff was very welcoming and accommodating, and all the amenities and extras made the hotel a very good deal. Our room was clean and spacious, the free breakfast/snacks were well appreciated, and while in the hotel, it's easy to forget you're in the middle of NYC.

Great location between Madison and Park. Enjoyed the morning cold buffet and the evening wine/cheese. Rooms could use "freshing ". Bathroom was adequate. Requested street view of 54th which was great. Understand that the family owned boutique hotel has sister facilities in the City. Would definitely stay again on next trip.

We enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Elysee. The location was great and the staff was very accommodating and helpful in every way. The bagels and biales were terrific and fresh every day.

The Hotel Elysee is terrific! We stayed there for 2 days over 4th of July weekend, and really enjoyed the proximity of the hotel to Central Park, Rockefeller Center and nearby shopping. I would definitely recommend it.
Pros - Quiet - both in terms of street noise and hearing other guests through the walls, impeccable service, continental breakfast including a wide variety of items - fruit, yogurt, hard-boiled eggs, terrific pastrries, bagels, cereal, juices, coffee + more; high thread count sheets on the bed and very good shampoo, and other items etc.

Cons - The only downsides were that the shower head wasn't streaming water out very well; it was rather like it was somewhat plugged up; the hair dryer wasn't powerful at all (I'm glad I brought my own); the beds were a bit hard for my taste but I still got a good sleep. The Monkey Bar appeared to be closed so there wasn't a restaurant on-site from what I could tell, but that was not a problem because there are lots of restaurants nearby .
Overall, it was a really wonderful place to stay. I will stay here again when my travels take me to NYC.

Elysee was a personal welcoming hotel in the middle of the big city. It was fairly close to Central Park and Rockefeller Center. The people at the desk were helpful, the smell of fresh flowers in public areas and the pillows on the beds were fabulous. The continental breakfast was a nice spread and the coffee offerings were plentiful. Our only complaints were waiting for the only elevator a few times and that there was only one public computer available, with lots of guests needing to check things. It also wasn't available unless the meeting(breakfast/wine& crackers) room was open.
