“A very pleasant stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hotel Elysee. The guys at the front desk are very professional and helpful. The location is close to MOMA and a short subway ride to the Metropolitan Museum. The Club Room is a comfortable place to have your breakfast, snacks during the day or wine & cheese on a weekday afternoon. We found the Club Room to be a nice place to "entertain" family and friends while staying in NYC. Our street side room was quiet during the night but we did hear a sanitation truck early in the morning. My only complaint is that the TV cabinet doesn't allow TV watching while reclining in bed.

Overall very good experience. Breakfast was great: fruits, cereals, assorted pastries, coffee, juice, yogurt, etc. The room was also great, very clean - even though i found a cigarrette bud. Staff is incredible and always willing. Totally recommend to anyone going to Manhattan. Location in Midtown is great. Near clubs and restaurants and 5th Ave.

My daughter and I stayed here for a week recently and just loved this hotel. It was our first visit to NYC and we had heard many stories about overpriced hotels with tiny rooms. Our room was lovely. Very spacious and we had a cute little terrace ouside. The breakfast was wonderful in a comfortable setting and the evening wine and cheese was a nice interlude after days of sightseeing. The location was brilliant for us and whilst we mainly walked, the subway and bus stops were very close by. The staff were great, always making sure we were being looked after. I can't wait to return and I would not hesitate in recommending this hotel to anyone.

This is our first time back at Elysee in a couple years - it is someplace we frequented in the past and our re-visit last month rekindled ALL the reasons why Hotel Elysee is a precious, intimate, mid-town boutique hotel> Service is always Top Notch: professional w/out being stuffy and very courteous and welcoming. One of the (many) charms of this little hotel is that it houses a variety of room settings. We were fortunate that our request for a specific room was accommodated and we were placed in one of our favorite rooms which has a spacious solarium-of-sorts adjacent to the sleeping room - the toiletries and bedding are of fine quality. Elysee's common room [where a copious "continental" breakfast, afternoon tea w/treats + week night "happy hour" - offers fresh, varied and generous repast] - while its a large room, arrangement of seating lets one cozy up with a cup of coffee/tea while enjoying the day's papers or to use a computer. When the Monkey Bar is open (not at this stay) it is fun to catch a cocktail and appetizer or a quick bite while surrounded by a NYC landmark of sorts - its whimsical murals of charming-chimps adorning the walls. The overall ambiance at hotel Elysee is reminiscent of a lovely European boutique hotel - if that is what they strive to achieve: they have nailed it!

My girlfirend and I spent a weekend in NYC at the Hotel Elysee. This was our second stay at the Elysee and we found it even better than the first. Very centrally located to theater and fabulous shopping. The breakfasts are fenomenal as well as the 5:00 wine and cheese. Very friendly and knowlegable staff. We will be sure to return next year!

This hotel is well located on W54th st Midtown not too far from Central Park. It is also close to several subway stops which makes it convenient to get downtown to theatres etc. It is also very close to the Museum of Modern Art and good local restaurants. Bills cafe across the street has good piano bar music till late and also acceptable food. The Monkey Bar downstairs is a good place to have a drink (although expensive). The hotel is comfortable and serves a good continental breakfast included in the room rate. Service is top quality. However, request a room away from the street as noise is a problem Trash collectors, jackhammers, sirens). After one night we relocated and had no more problems. Price was around $250 per night which is quite reasonable for such a quality hotel in NYC. Overall I would recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

For the money, this is one of the best values and hotel experiences we have ever had. The entire staff is ready to please and is extremely helpful. Having a full continental breakfast and cocktail "hour" included in the price is a definite plus, especially for NYC. We would stay there again in a heartbeat. The only negative was that the bathroom could be larger and provide more storage space, but we made due.
