“Great hotel”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Great hotel in terrific location. We walked everywhere from the hotel. The room was spacious, quite and extremely comfortable. The complimentary breakfast was excellent - huge variety of fresh fruit, freshly squeezed juices and a variety of breads and bagels. Extremely helpful staff in breakfast area. The ability to make tea or coffee at all times of the day in this room was an added bonus, especially after a day's sightseeing or just to wind down before bed.
I would definitely stay here again.

My husband and I spent one night at the Hotel Elysee and loved it. Very old but charming. Our room was spacious and had a small balcony that we loved! The staff was unpretentious and helpful. I have a gluten sensitivity and they even had gluten free bagels! We will be back.

Room Tip: The two double bed with balcony was wonderful!

My wife and I arrived in New York - after having spent 4 nights in Boston - and were greeted upon our arrival by 4 " Rugby Players " in suits at the front desk! They were anything but rugby players - they were courteous, professional, and more than helpful during our 9 night stay, anything from restaurant suggestions to routes to get from A to B and back. We had requested a quiet room away from the street and were given # 100 which, despite being next to the elevator was the quietest room we have ever been in. Some may say a tad small room ( but clean and a great bed ), none the less we unloaded our stuff and called it home for 9 nights - would not hesitate to go back. The big plus is not having to go looking for a place to have breakfast! Even the tennis players staying at the hotel were having an ample selection of what they wanted - and the staff working the breakfast duty were working harder than I have seen in most restaurants! The wine and cheese at night is another plus. As far as location, we tend to walk alot but if you aren't so inclined, there are metro stations within 5 blocks - just ask the " rugby players " at the front desk. Thanks to the staff all around!

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street.

The hotel is very centrally located. Our room was quiet and well equipped. The staff were always helpful and prompt to address any concerns. The staff at the breakfast went out of their way to make sure you had everything you would need. WIne and appetizers in the late afternoon were great. I would definitely stay here again and again.

Room Tip: Ask for an inside room so there is no street noise.

The hotel was excellent. The room was larger than we expected. The service was excellent. We used them for dinner reservations and to book a car and driver for us and were quite pleased with the results. Like the other hotels in the group, they provide a free breakfast, coffee during the day and wine and cheese in the evenings. While the price is pretty standard for NYC, when you take into account the breakfast and evening fare, it is really well priced. We are staying there again later in the year.

A friend and I stayed at the Hotel Elysee for a night before departing on a cruise. We had stayed at their sister hotel, the Casablanca, and liked this one even better.

The location is great - just a few blocks from Central Park and fabulous shopping. The theater district is also in walking distance (although probably not in heels!)

Our room was spacious, beautiful and included a refrigerator. Complementary water and a chocolate bar! The breakfast was wonderful - bagels, a huge bowl of sweet fresh fruit, cereal, pastries, hard boiled eggs etc. Cookies, tea and coffee are available 24/7.

The staff was wonderful. Very helpful in every way, friendly and personable.

We will stay here the next time we come to NYC, and highly recommend it.
