“A grand dame of comfort”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2013

This is an older hotel, filled with warm and friendly people. The check in was flawless and responsive. The room was older, but everything was completely perfect. Bed comfortable, HVAC quiet, wifi fast and free. Bathroom small but like a marble jewel box. Very quiet at night. No view but no noise. Second floor living room lively, impressive free breakfast with a lot of very happy guests. I will definitely return.

This was our 2nd visit to the Hotel Elysee and it was even better than the 1st! Our room was great-very quiet! The complimentary breakfast was all you could ask for and the coffee was especially good! We never experienced the wine and cheese in the early evening so cannot comment on that but will sing the praises of the staff. Everyone was so friendly, pleasant, knowledgeable and there to please! The location couldn't be better and public transportation access is very convenient. We would highly recommend this property.

Room Tip: If you want quiet, ask for a room on a high floor away from the elevator in the rear of the hotel. T...

My family and I have been guests for more than 30 years at one 5 star hotel on a regular basis, and last year we decided after many unfortunate and unacceptable slip-ups on the part of the hotel that we would no longer patronize its facility. We decided to look into and try Hotel Elysée. We couldn't have been more pleased with every aspect of this hotel from the appearance, exceptional staff who were informative and knowledgeable, rooms (and suites) with extraordinary attention to detail, comfortability, quiet and which afforded us a most memorable and delightful stay in New York City. We will continue to stay at Hotel Elysée as it epitomizes elegance, and style, and unwavering care of it's guests. Thank You Hotel Elysée!

The perfect midtown hotel, love the place, love the staff, very happy to stay here once again. The free Wifi and included breakfast are hugely appealing, and there is an attitude that sets this hotel apart from the snootier, lifted pinky competition that might be glossier but is a far more expensive and colder experience. Of course the quirky, no two room alike furnishings and whimsical decor (and signage on the second floor) are also part of what makes staying here a personal experience, the exact opposite of a corporate box where every room is identical.

We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting New York. It is a lovely boutique hotel in a very convenient location. The staff were all very attentive and the room extremely comfortable. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was great but it was the complimentary tea/coffee and cookies at anytime of the day and the complimentary wine with hors d'oeuvre in the evening which really impressed us - a really lovely touch.

We prefer smaller hotels, and this fit the bill. Great location and a welcome oasis at the end of the day. When making the reservation we had asked for a quiet room in the back and were given a room on the 14th floor. Once we saw it, we asked to change to a room in front, as we prefer more light. Ruby accommodated us immediately and we were given a room on the 5th floor. We were warned about noise in the morning, but didn't find this to be a problem.

Breakfast in the club room was a great way to start the day, especially with the classical music playing in the background. What was even better was that coffee was available early. My husband got coffee every morning at 6 and brought it back to the room. We hope to return to New York and to the Hotel Elysee.

Hotel Elysee is a brilliant location for exploring New York, central but on a quiet road. The staff were attentive and couldn't have offered better service. A very comfortable room. Would highly recommend.
