“Excellent Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2014

Hotel Elysee is a gem of a hotel. It has old world charm and is situated right in the heart of the city. I would definitely stay there again, except next time skip the wi-fi as it doesn't work and ask for their Verizon mi-fi.

A wonderful place in the heart of NY eastside-Service is so friendly and competent. We have already rebooked for our next trip in August. The breakfast included offer seemed a bit skeptical. GLORIOUS!

Room Tip: High floors are quiet and comfy!

Just back from NYC, took my 14 year old granddaughter and her mom to see it for the first time. Stayed at Elysee and it was a great choice. Good location, nice to have a continental breakfast included, and a wonderful staff. Very clean and nice toiletries. Everyone we met at the hotel was very impressed and glad that they had also chosen the Elysee. Will definitely return here. Also great meals at, Bar Americain, Butter and Fig&Olive. My granddaughter loved the donut/croissant combo at Paris Baguette.

Marvelous experience. The staff is friendly, helpful, quite willing to give recommendations, and occasionally appropriately funny. Our room on the 11th floor was perfect, comfortable, clean and beautifully decorated. Breakfasts, all day tea, cookies and fruit are generous and well done. The 5-8 PM wine reception is exceptional with decent wines plus champagne, nice cheeses, a variety of crackers, fruits, cookies and fresh veggies with dip. The sitting rooms have many cozy sitting areas, and a library, with a selection of daily newspapers and beautiful fresh flowers in every table. Quite nicely done, all included. I loved the marble bathroom - great shower head.

Room Tip: All the restaurants within the same block as the hotel are excellent and well reviewed, many price r...

stayed here at start of our holidays end of april,it is a very nice hotel and the breakfast and complimentry evening cheese and wine a lovely idea,staff very polite,good base for walking around new york,only one hiccup was that when the chap swiped our card on arrival he actually took $1100 off of it,we didnt find out till next day when trying to do some shopping and and our card didnt have as much credit as we knew it should have,this was immediately rectified when we informed reception as our stay was all prebooked and prepaid,but still something for people to be aware of!! it did cause alot of hassle for us and we missed out on some of the sightseeing we wanted to do because we were trying to sort things with the bank.!

Dear Diane L.,

Please accept our sincerest apologies for the exorbitant hold place on your credit card upon check-in. My Guest Service Agent, although he is my most recent hire, should have been more careful with the hold placed on your card. You chose our prepay rate plan, offering a nice discount for travelers with firm plans and he should have taken only a small amount to cover your incidental charges. I am sorry the impact on your spending hindered you from fully enjoying our city. Although you mention the error was rectified immediately, still it was our fault. I would very much like the opportunity to speak with you and offer you my direct apologies. You may reach me at john@elyseehotel.com I do hope to hear from you soon.

Sincerely,

John Avina
General Manager

This was our first visit to New York and the hotel was superb. The staff were friendly and helpful, the room was really nice and we really appreciated the drinks and snacks each evening, as well as the breakfast. We would certainly stay again and recommend the hotel warmly.

I have stayed at Hotel Elysee twice before and this most recent trip was excellent as always. The Hotel was a short walk to my business conference but miles above staying at the conference location. It feel like walking home each day. The staff is excellent, never pushy or too busy to answer a question. I took my book and laptop down to the common room on the second floor and was able to work very comfortably before going upstairs to sleep. The complimentary breakfast and evening wine are wonderful touches for this weary business traveler!
