Based on the impressive history of reviews, I picked this hotel and hoped it would be perfect for the weekend I planned to propose to my now-fiance. This hotel came through. Without any obligation to do so, they upgraded us to a junior suite and left a bottle of red wine and chocolate truffles waiting for us in our room. The hotel was generally very quiet and very clean, and the room was comfortable and awesomely spacious. We liked the marble bathroom. Since the weekend was a surprise and we didn't have any clothes for our dinner reservations, i was glad we were just 1 block from 5th ave shopping (not to mention 3 blocks from central park). Minor cons: the 1 elevator for the entire hotel is a little slow, and the hotel bar was a little pricey even for Manhattan... I think you'd be hard-pressed to find something with more character and charm in such a key location. I was very satisfied with this unique hotel, and I would highly recommend it especially for couples

I traveled to NYC with my two daughters to celebrate their 30th birthdays. I spent much time researching and choosing where we would stay as I wanted it to be perfect. Staying at the Hotel Elysee exceeded all of my hopes, desires, and expectations. The service was superb, our suite was comfortable, clean, and roomy. The breakfast and 'cocktail hour' were such that they just added to the excellent experience. The location of Hotel Elysee could not be better. We were able to walk so many places, including to many restaurants, shops, and for coffee and cookies. Our favorite experiences close to the hotel were Fig and Olive Restaurant, Momofuku Milk Bar, Central Park, the Met Museum of Art. We even were able to walk to the Broadway shows we attended. We certainly hope to make a return trip to the city to do all of the things that we did not get to do......and will definitely stay at the Hotel Elysee.

This small hotel could not be better located or provide a higher level of superb service. The staff was ever friendly and professional. Breakfast included fresh fruit, bagels, croissants and a variety of breads, cereals and great coffee. Coffee, tea, fruit and cookies available 24 hours and a wine and cheese service during the work week that could take the place of dinner. Our pleasant and immaculate double deluxe in the rear of the hotel had extremely comfortable beds and pillows. Our only (and minor) complaint: poor lighting in the bathroom. The hotel is exceptional.

Rode the train from DC to NYC. Arrived around 2:30 pm in NYC. Hailed a cab from Penn Station, 30 minutes later at the Elysee. Welcomed at the door, room was impeccable, and the same for the staff. Breakfast was scrumptious! Upon checking out, we had a standing appointment, the staff couteously asked to check our bags and provided us with complementary umbellas for our appointment.

Highly recommend this hotel!

This was our second stay at the Elysee. It is a great location for the MOMA, most shopping, and central park. Most other sites and restaurants are within a $10 cab ride. The room was very nice ( AND NO BED BUGS) and clean. It was my wife's birthday and I had arranged for flowers which they provided at prevailing cost and they also provided chocolate and a bottle of Proscotto for free. The breakfast is very nice at no cost and the afternoon buffet is not to be believed, also at no cost. You could easily make lunch or dinner at the buffet. In the evenings when calling for a cab, they sent one doorman up to the corner to secure the cab from the cross street. The service is really good. This is a great place and well worth the money. We also ate at the Monkey Bar and had a nice dinner on a day it snowed. We are definitely going to go back again.

We loved our stay at the Elysee. The staff was courteous and welcoming; the breakfast very
good; location perfect for museums and getting around town. We were in a nice room in an upper floor RIGHT next to the elevator: NOT A SOUND! The Club Room is the final selling
point: a great space open until midnight w/coffee/tea snacks available. A lovely spot to come
home to, and we'll be back.

We were told about your hotel by our family that stays there a few times a year and I must say what a Gem !! The location, the amenities, the staff - The Monkey Bar !!
I have already told many of our friends - you have to stay here - Many of our friends always ask well how much was the room? because they have all been to NY and most hotels are so expemsive - your hotel pricing is great - Again I can't help but say - Thank you !! You will see us again.

Kind Regards
