Hotel Elysee by Library Hotel Collection
Ranked #10 of 473 Hotels in New York City
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 23, 2012

Great location, excellent service, nicely appointed rooms and baths, perfect breakfast on the 2nd floor...all very nice. Breakfast and hors d'oeuvres service impeccable. The entire hotel spotless. Wonderful front end staff and the wine, chocolates, and book was a wonderful upgrade.The hotel is ideally located for many of the attractions and very hand for the museums and galleriws. Perfect for shopping between park ave and lexington. My only suggestion is to request a room, off of the main street at the back- as it can be busy at night, with the traffic noise( but then this added ambience to our NYC experience.)the tradeoff would be you get to look at a wall and not a view!

Room Tip: Request rooms at the back of the hotel as they are quieter.

Hotel Elysee is a delightful hotel, recommended by friends. While not the "trendy, contemporary" place that many boutique hotels have become, the Elysee maintains an old-fashioned, classic style in the middle of NYC. Great location, excellent service, nicely appointed rooms and baths, perfect breakfast on the 2nd floor...all very nice. Definitely attracts a set crowd, from Europeans, older travelers, and "regulars." While the decor seems "dated," (and the AC was quite loud) the hotel is so well maintained and extremely clean, that it didn't matter one bit. Our room with two doubles was perfect for a parent/child weekend. We will be back....thank you!

My husband and I recently stayed for about a week (27th September to 5th October, 2012) at this beautiful hotel. Initially, it seemed much smaller than it looked on the internet, but that didn't really matter as we were out every day anyway and, in fact, this added to its charm. All staff were incredibly friendly and helpful without being overbearing. We had a room on the 8th floor on the street side and it was extremely noisy, but typical of the sounds of New York ... the city that never sleeps! However, we spent so many hours walking every day that it wasn't a problem to fall asleep. We had a lovely healthy breakfast every morning in the Club Room on level two, before venturing out for the day. We didn't take advantage of the wine & cheese offered in the evening though, as we were never there at that time ... well, if we were, we were just getting ready to rush out again! We had a beautiful meal at the Monkey Bar/Restaurant one evening before going to the theatre and the service was absolutely wonderful ... there was not a single thing we could fault. We would definitely stay at this hotel again and recommend it highly.

I can't speak too highly of the comfort and service provided by Hotel Elysee. We particularly appreciated the peaceful efficiency of the hotel and staff who made our stay so enjoyable.The all day lounge/coffee bar is a real plus.
The hotel is ideally located for many of the attractions and very hand for the museums and galleries.

Room Tip: Ask for a high room at the back for least street noise.

How do we express our stay at Hotel Elysee, by using words such as absolute pleasure,sophisticated,timeless charm,a cozy jewel in N.Y. not your opulent contemporary Hotel. We where amazed at the quality of service shown from the front desk to the hostess serving complimentary breakfast and evening wine & hors d`oeuvres. Our final words about Hotel Elysee it is our only Hotel when in N.Y.!!!!!

Room Tip: maybe upgrade to a Junior Suite lots of room

The Elysee is a beautiful traditional hotel in New York. Perhaps for the slightly older crowd though - there were times it felt we were 30 years younger than anyone else - but all the same a great place.

We got upgraded to a suite which was bigger than our flat back home and even had a grand piano in it. An amazing room!

Every afternoon there is free tea including wine and cheese - make sure you make the most of it as it's really good quality.

One of the best hotels I've stayed in in New York.
