“Worst travel experience of my life!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 26, 2012

We had an apartment booked with this company in Nov 2012. Our apartment was moved unknown to us from W57th St to this destination.It was very difficult to contact them about this matter. We unfortunately had to cancel our trip to NYC due to Hurricane Sandy. We were promised a refund the day we cancelled. 10 weeks later, still no refund.
We have been given the run around from all the staff and the General managers.
I would advise against anybody ever booking with this company. All we have received are lies, lies, lies. I have over 30 emails from them making false promises. They are now in the hands of my bank and VISA credit card dispute team. Justice will be served on this company that have left my family $8,000 out of pocket just before Christmas. Thanks Elite City Stays for ruining the joy of Christmas for my 2 children and wife. Thank you Florin Vicol, Matthew Reed & Reggie Pena. You are all snakes.

Elite City Stays offers apartment style living in the big apple. Situated on 23rd Street and 6th Avenue the secure apartment is within walking distance to Times Square. Its very close to the Empire State Building. If walking is not your thing then jump on the subway just 2 doors down from the apartments. I loved the idea of staying in an apartment and not a hotel which is why I chose these apartments. Apartment is very small and the plumbing is tricking (this is what you would expect from an old NY building, right!) Once you get the hang of it its fine, kitchenette, old style bathroom with pipes on the outside of the walls.Great secure building with a 24hr doorman.

Stayed for 3 days in one of the apartments with two others. Has decent amenities (kitchen, TV, Wi-Fi), though Wi-Fi needed a reboot at first. Fairly spacious and had a pullout bed and one larger double bed. Pretty bare-bones extended stay scenario for most folks there, and the anonymity afforded by the fact that it does not look like a hotel at all from the front makes it pretty good for some folks. It's also very close to a lot of the UN buildings.

There was a rather annoying heating duct clang occasionally in the evening.

The cleaning crew came early the day I was to check out, so I felt a bit rushed to leave.

I did leave my phone charger there and I had the hardest time getting to the customer service folks, which I think is a pretty major drawback. I was rerouted across multiple folks on the phone, and eventually gave up on getting it back. If you're choosing Elite City Stays, just make sure you can handle things on your own, because there's no-one on-site to help you.

Professionality and seriousness are not in this structure. Booked and Paid 3 months in advance in order to plan my quiet stay in New York for christmas but one week before my leaving they cancelled my reservation.
When they refunded me I lost money due to the change Euro-Dollars, because I paid in Euro but they refunded me in dollars.
They used this game in order to earn money. They charged from my credit card money without reason and when I asked reimbursement for this I lost other money due to the change Euro-Dollars.
If you want other information about this bad experience don't hesitate to contact me, I can provide any emails and documents in order to demonstrate this history.
